Looks Like Member ID Creation Has Been Reopened
« on: April 20, 2012, 06:38:17 PM »
Somehow I ended up on the Member ID site, and it looks like Member ID creation has been opened up again, just thought I'd share this little find.

Interesting... I wonder why they're bothering? Why not just hold off on it until Fall? Basically open it up once a year for 3-4 weeks and that's it.

Hmm, quite true, I guess they want to give those who missed out on Member ID's the first time (which I still don't get, I'm pretty sure it was open up for more than enough time...)

I'm just really surprised on how silently it opened, I would have thought it would have been announced the moment it was opened...

Thank you SO MUCH for posting that new member ID registrations have reopened.  I had a "DOH!!" moment the first time around because I thought I could use my own member ID like I did for registering for WonderCon with Comic-Con.  They probably didn't announce new member registrations because Comic-Con pros, etc. have been chomping at the bit about when they'll be able to buy badges.

I think others had mentioned email responses from CCI stated that it'd be re-opened as part of pro and press reg.  No reason not to have it open though I guess the people who did register during the initial 8 weeks feel like they should get a 3rd exclusive chance at getting badges.

Just from a logistical point of view... why increase the number of people vying for the remaining resale badges? That can only make things worse.

Totally agree Transmute! A mad stampede for the last badges.

I got a message from the art show co-ordinator to supply a face picture for my volunteer badge, so that he could get my badge ready when member ID was reopened, so it probably is for internal use for now I'm guessin.

So people in the art show have their pictures on their badges?

I don't know if its staff-wide, or just for the art show? They did ask if we would be interested in getting a shirt made for the art show volunteers so we look like a team instead of a bunch of rebels  ;)

Oh, for the volunteers! I thought you meant people who had submitted work to be in the art show!

Well, it looks like Member ID registration has opened up again, so it will be available for next year's convention.

just as a data point; kids who are 12 can have a member id, it will not mess with their ability to get into the con as a child.

As of right now, anyone with a birth year of 2000 (or before) can sign up.

If you have a 12 yr old, it might be a good idea to set one up because CCI could announce pre-reg plans for 2013 at anytime and may also close Member ID reg at random times for maintenance or anything else they may have planned.
