Title: Can't Go
Post by: Pyramid on May 09, 2022, 07:08:03 PM
I am bummed.

My family and will not be able to attend Comic Con this year.  Our daughter has Junior Olympics and the timing couldn't be worse.  Trying not to think about missing breakfast at the Broken Yolk with all of you or chatting in line and Hall H.  I put in for a refund request and was told it would be refunded by CCI.  Edit:  Hoping the forces that be will work out as they should.

Bummer you cannot go, I will miss hanging out with you.


Can you edit that person's email off your post (if you can't search for it, they may not want it on here) and contact @Transmute Jun (https://www.friendsofcc.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=314) they are in her group.

When in doubt, you can always message your group leader and they can get you the information you need  :)

This is bittersweet but I am looking forward to her being exceptional in the JOs. Wishing her a great time and experience!

She's legit! That's so cool she's in a junior Olympics. Sorry you can't make it, I'm sure it's extra brutal with the cancelations. Best of luck and hope you can make it in 2023

I am so sorry to hear this, but it will be worth it to see your daughter compete. We will see you in San Diego next year.

Bummer about the timing, but...

Bittersweet is the perfect way to describe this.  Thanks, man.

I just wanted to acknowledge how awesome this community.  The entire refund went smoothly.  I don't think there's a more trustworthy group of fellow nerds on the planet.  Enjoy, SDCC everyone!

Pardon my ignorance, by getting your badge refunded, does that kick you out of presale next time?

I believe so, since for all intents and purposes the person getting the refund did not indeed attend SDCC and would thus be ineligible for Returning Attendee Registration.

Unless you attended Special Edition, of course.

A related question: if you bought badges but didn’t get a refund and didn’t attend (either the regular or special edition), do you still get to partake in PreReg?

I have read mixed theories on this one, some swear you didn't have to and others swear you have to.  All say it happened to them.  So I think it's a risk, but plausible. 

Probably not something CCI want's public.

I had badges for Thursday and Sunday 2019, didn't attend because I got really sick, and didn't get a refund. I was still able to participate in Pre-Reg for 2020 and got a 4-day badge (which of course got carried over to 2022).

It used to be the case that you could participate in PreReg.  I am not sure if things have changed.
