I was going to say November 1 but that would conflict with Rhode Island Comic Con plus it would be three days before Election Day, so hopefully it will be no later than November 8.

I think the disclaimer is pretty clear. They are aiming for "Fall" and "Spring" respectively, but it could happen before or after those timeframes. It's stupid to hold a registration event until after the "official" calendar start of any season if they don't have to.  If it's ready, they should launch it, regardless if "Spring" is still 5 days away.

While I agree that they're aiming for general timeframes, I disagree that it's stupid to hold it after a time period they've mentioned it will be in starts. If anything, it would be stupid to say that it will occur during X time and then hold it before. The disclaimer said "slightly before or after", so the weekend before is in bounds but a month before is not. (Holding it after the end of X is more understandable since they may not have been able to get everything ready by then.) I thought of it as letting people take a break from keeping their guard up 24/7, kind of like when they announced specifically that it would not be in December (or November?) last year.

November 15th is my half birthday so I think getting 4+preview night badges that day would be an excellent gift from CCI ;)

Half birthday?

Yes - 6 months after/before your actual birthday. My birthday is May 15th so my half birthday is November 15th. I will be turning 25.5 :-p

I hope it's any day but the Disneyland Avenger's Half Marathon (11/16/2014). But CCI history shows that pre-reg is hardly ever on a Sunday.

for a few years i tried to actually celebrate my birthday on my half birthday.  i gave up on that after a bit. 

actual birthdays around the holidays are a pain.

I tried to have half birthdays when I was a kid to get more gifts.  My parents didn't buy it.
