Badge Sale after May 15th
« Reply #15 on: May 14, 2012, 12:18:11 PM »
Is there a way to send an email blast to forum members about badge resales and for them to indicate interest before resales start?  I've been hearing that May 15 is the magic date.

5/15 is just the refund cutoff date. unless they plan multiple resales of the refunded badges, it's way too early...

@Groove: Yeah, May 15th is basically the last day for badge refunds.

As for resales... I think they'll just have one more, and then that's it for the year. @[email protected]

Last year they had 2 resales - one for 4 day badges and one for single day badges. During the single day badge resale, you could only buy 2 badges at most, meaning only 2 days.

I wonder if it'll be the same this year. @[email protected]  Who knows!  Ha ha.  (Chances are, we'll probably find out through e-mail 48 hours before the sale date and time, like last time...)

Actually, last year there was a ONE HOUR notice for both resales, with notice posted on Twitter and Facebook.

only reason I think we'll get more notice is because of the member IDs. i'm sure they're tired of all the hate mail as is...

Hahahahahaha, that's fantastically uncool.  @[email protected];;  (Last year, I went as a professional badge guest, so I didn't worry too much about badge resales at that time... This year is different though. Ha ha.)  I hope that they do provide a little bit more of an advanced notice this year though.

*nods* I'm leaning toward this impression as well.

Frankly, I'm sure they'll get hate mail no matter WHAT they do. I actually prefer the shorter notice. Yeah, it means there's a chance I might miss out, but that's better than having waves of people slam at once. It gives a decent chance to anyone who's on the ball.

But that's my point. There will be rants no matter what. Regardless of how they handle the resales, people who didn't get a pass will rant. It's just the way the world works.

That's why we should all just avoid reading through the posts on the CCI facebook page!  Ha ha.

Actually, a part of me finds it amusing.

Another part of me finds it sad.

The rest of me thinks of it as a study in human nature.

Well, technically, we met on the forums... sort of.  Ha ha.

Yeah, I'll probably be online if the resale is in the morning (chances are, it will mostly be at 8:00 am PDT again @[email protected]).  If it's in the afternoon, I might not have access to a computer for a while.
