So if CCI follows the same patterns as the past, they would notify us about 10 days prior to the sale. 
That pretty much eliminates 9/10.
I'm not saying it's going to happen (I voted for 10/15), but if it's 9/17, we would probably hear something today.   :)

If it's not 10/15 a lot of us are going to be wrong  :P

Unfortunately I think 12 days ahead was the most we've ever gotten (in the last 8 years or so anyway). It's usually about 10 days.

BITD, before they did the random thing, it was zero notice & quite the free-for-all!  Like, one would just have to know to stalk the website and check in frequently, then then one Saturday am it as live and the rush was on.  I had almost always pre-purchased my badges at the previous year's Con (I would pickup my badge in Sails on PN, then slide right over to a different table and preregister for the next year), but the few times I didn't it felt like the good ol' wild wild west scrambling to get a badge!

I voted October 29th because it is on the Saturday of a convention when I will be working. This has happened to me multiple times!  ;D

Now that Pro Applications are slated to close on Fri. Sept. 30 I think it's safe to at least presume Ret. Reg. won't occur until sometime in October (or later).  In 2019 Pro Application closed a few weeks before Returning Registration, and new applicants weren't notified until a week or so after Returning Registration.  Seems likely either the 15th or 22nd is likely

Returning Volunteers registration starts on 9/27 and ends on 10/11.  We got the email today. That's different from 2019, when it closed AFTER returning registration.  Slightly puzzling.

Interesting; is that a "confirm your interest in volunteering for 2023" type of thing?

Sort of...

If you volunteered in 2022, you're guaranteed to be a volunteer in 2023, as long as you register.  It used to be called 'Priority Volunteer Registration'.  Now they're calling it 'Returning Daily Volunteer Registration'.

I got invited to an after-wedding day party and my response was, that I will come if there isn't an SDCC Badge sale that day.  It has begun lol

Also, there is a day before the wedding welcome party, the wedding, and an after-the-wedding party.  It's a lot of parties

That seems to be a trend. I'm going to a wedding on the 1st and it's ceremony, reception, afterparty, and after-afterparty.  ???

Which is all after the welcome party the night before.

I actually had a friend, who lives in San Diego mind you, who got married Saturday of Comic-Con!  He was somehow shocked that family and friends flying in had trouble finding a hotel downtown (he had it in Coronado somewhere, IIRC), and seemed a little bummed that I skipped it.

For me & Pre-Registration, it's always perilous since it's during marching band season where I have rehearsals every Saturday from 8am-3pm so when announcements for Returning Registration happen I have to plan rehearsals so I'm in one of my band rooms near a computer that morning  :-X

(YES, it's more laid back for me nowadays since I'm a Pro but I go all-in trying to help my lineup group & other friends)
