Is there a way to send an email blast to forum members about badge resales and for them to indicate interest before resales start? 

No there isn't.   I actually tend to think the badge sale won't be right a way after the 15th. Historically cci doesn't do two things at once and they're still taking care of pro's & press.
I think the best we can do is either to corral them from here & direct them to post in this thread.

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

that was in reaction to the repeated site crashes.  it was the only way to get tickets sold with the existing software....

If anyone wants to join the group Post in this thread & we'll arrange a private place for the group to post

Pros were done May 11. Not sure about press.

There IS historical precedent for CCI doing things the day after (or 2 days after) a big deadline. Take the original round of badge sales, which was announced the day after Member ID registration ended.

As of right now, Press registration is still open.

oh i definitely agree. just annoying to see all the rants on the fb page...

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.

I plan to monitor CCI's Facebook page on the morning of the badge resales just to see what kind of comments they get.

It'll be a mixture of mostly negative comments about the badge resales and a few satisfied people... >__<;;

Ha ha.

and then inevitably someone way late to the show asking if they will have a 4th resale or if they can purchase at the door...

gonna guess 6/1 as the resale date. gives time for all the refunds to have been processed, press reg to close and all the other odds and ends tied up plus get past memorial day when they'll probably be understaffed. 

if they allow folks w/ singles to upgrade to 4 day badges (which seems to be the case), that would leave another handful of badges needing to be refunded so i can see that being paired w/ hotels as combos or perhaps being offered to pros for their guests (seemed to be a limited # w/ the complaints).

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.

Actually on the 4 day badge resale the limit was only 2 as well.

So I love this idea but it's more practical during the regular sale when you can buy 6. When it is 2, that's you and 1 other person. Better than nothing, especially if you can be that one person but not sure the group hook-up piece really works here.

On that note, I'm in!  ;D I could use a Saturday single day. So please if anyone can get in early on the resale and gets to purchase with Saturday's still available please PM or email or call! I'd be eternally grateful and would hook you up with a little compensation or at least a lunch or high five!  ;)

Bustagroove, what are you regestered as?  It'll determine what you can buy.

Also for those three that need badges, we'll need you to pay very close attention to cci emails, you must check in at least ten min prior to the sale time.
I would strongly suggest you figure out the fifty and sign up for their tweets.

Can we try and keep this thread clear for the actual, resale info.  There's plenty of other threads for previous sales.

Just some info for you potential badge buyers but I had to request refunds for two 4-day badges w/o PN.  I put the request in this morning and not 10 minutes later I got an email confirming the refund.  Either these guys 'n gals workin' the refunds are EXTREMELY efficient or they gots lots of folks down there sitting around waiting for refunds to come in but there just ain't any....hope they got Galaga...

Yes, but that allowed you to buy a 4 day for yourself and 1 other person as well.

When they limited to 2 single day badges, that means you could buy 2 DAYS... eg: Friday and Saturday. So even for yourself, you couldn't get the entire Con.

Pretty sure she meant IFTTT but spellcheck corrected it.
