What I can remember is that they'll notify us up to 10 days prior to when the con starts if they have pre-con shifts available.

We do have some pre-convention volunteer assignments available. If you are available to volunteer the Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday before the convention, July 18, 19 or 20, please check the box below. This does not guarantee that you will get an assignment before the show. We will email you 10 days or so before the show if we have a pre-show assignment for you. If you do not hear from us, then you will get an assignment when you check in during the show (Thursday-Sunday July 21-24, 2022).

i was able to get back in & grab the wording

I just registered, no issue with the website or form. I noticed that there was an option for indicating that a volunteer needed to limit their sun-exposure/indoor only. Is that a new option for this 2022? I don't remember it on the previous forms.

Finally was able to register, between this and NYCC badges this morning, this was a stressful day! It's already in my orders with a link to the form I filled out, so now I can relax and see that I checked that I am available for a pre-con assignment.

How can you tell that you marked that you would be available for a pre-con assignment? I loaded up the form but the question about pre-con assignments just reports True/False.

I'm assuming if you didn't check the box, it would say "FALSE"

It does look like they changed how pre-con works this year.  In cons past, checking that box put you on the pre-con shift interest list.  Then shortly before the con the sign up email would go out.  You got to pick the day and time of the shift.  Now it seems they will just let you know if they have a shift for you.

"We will email you 10 days or so before the show if we have a pre-show assignment for you."

So I wonder if this volunteer registration is also the pre-con shift registration.  If it is, then that's bad for me.  Since a pre-con shift has always been first come first served.  I totally forgot registration started today until a few minutes ago.
