Ugh.  I must be glutton for punishment.  I keep going to the FB page.  Got into it with this guy who thinks that because I was part of a group to purchase badges, I'm part of the 'problem'.

I've learned to stay away from posts like that. Won't get productive result.
...you had me at hello...

*hugs*   You're not part of the problem. You're doing the best you can under difficult circumstances, and you're following the recommendations that CCI themselves made.

yep,  i get pm's mostly from the fb people asking for basic information, and I'm like 'scroll down'.  In addition, it's like, i really *don't* want to answer individual questions,  If i take the time to answer a question I want it to be in a way that can benefit more then just one person.

I don't understand why people think PM'ing someone will get a better response- it's the exact opposite in my experience. And there is a search option, called google....

Hey Alyssa, I apologize for sending you that PM today.  I didn't see your request not to until after I did.  :-[ I will of course abide by your request from now on.

With all the talk about SDCCI implementing a lottery system, here's how I fared with lotteries.

In 2001, I drew a number twice for two opportunities to get tickets to the 2001 World Series in Phoenix between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the New York Yankees.  I did well in the first lottery and got the tickets I wanted for games 1 and 2, lost out in the second, didn't get tickets for games 6 and 7.

For the last few years, I put in a request to get tickets to "Saturday Night Live" in New York.  Only once last year did I get tickets for their live broadcast, not lucky in the previous years and probably won't be lucky this year as well.

Over the last few years, I put in requests through both the Oscars and iota.com to get bleacher seats for the Oscars Red Carpet.  So far, I have not been so lucky.]

Take it for what it's worth.

I like going to the CCI FB page - I genuinely love 'giving back' to this event that has given me so much. There's a quote doing the rounds on the UK pro DJ/instructional circuit lifted from some American seminars, 'passing down the ladder' - that is, if you've gone thru it yourself and can help others up, it benefits everybody to do so.

That being said, last Saturday, after the Badge Sale? Avoided the FB page like the frakin' plague for at least a day...
