Is Configo the same vendor used by TicketMaster for rock concerts?  I remember seeing both the walking man and time waiting for ticket purchase when I bought tickets to see The Rolling Stones perform in Pasadena.

Great summation of the event! Thanks You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Other observations;

folks were able to make a Member ID when the sale was happening. I know of one person who found out about the sale at 11 15am, made a member id, joined the que & bought a badge around noon.

the running man time was not completely accurate. The time estimation was likely based on an average time to complete the buying process. When the buying session was terminated early, that affected the running man's estimated time.

The order number for volunteers was approx. in the 22000 range. Towards the end of the general sale I saw an order number of 36000. I fully believe they sold a few more after that order number.

the first badge buying I saw was at 11:02. Sorting was extremely fast!

They still need to allot more time to complete the registration process - I only had 5 minutes to complete the entire registration process and was bumped out several times and had to wait to get back in and start from the beginning each time. The timer never reset back to 5 minutes for each page. I sent a message to Comic-con about this.

How did I miss this board?   :). Anyway...

One other thing that I noticed.  If you bought a badge for someone else, they got a confirmation email AND you got copied on it.  If you bought for someone else, and forgot to do a screen shot (because you were stressed about getting everything right and looking at the 5 minute countdown), No worries.   :)

Interesting so 22XXX to 45XXX order numbers.  23000 orders between Vol reg, pro reg & the first wave of gen reg.

Good observation.  As someone who as a music teacher/marching band designer who annually has to prepare/work within a budget, I like to "over-budget/under-spend" and in that regard I 100% appreciate that the multiple times I messed around the badge-buying, including with Pro-reg early screw up, the walking man almost always end up slightly shorter than the original projection.  The only "problem" with that (read: there was no actual problem BUT) was when I had to run to the bathroom and when I came back a few mins before my slotted time I was already looking at the verify screen.
Presuming CCI uses this method for high-traffic events (ala 2023 SDCCI) this is something for folks to take into consideration.  Again, that's Uber-overthinking perhaps, but for those of us over-thinkers/over-planners it's something

It was around 40800 yesterday afternoon.  So since the initial rush, about 4-5K badges sold in about 24 hours.

In the past, how good/quick is CC with badge refunds?  Both my bro and sis in law can’t make it, so I just requested refunds for both.  I’m still going.
