Ugh, I'm usually very punctual about buying these badges in the past, now I got to resort to the resale. :X First time doing this and I got to buy it for myself along with 2 friends 1 of which can't do it himself because he just got lasik in both eyes. I read this and that past thread and got a decent grasp, but a full understanding of the process.

Just a bit of clearing up the grey areas. Is the e-mail for the resale going to be at any moment after may 15th? Also, is the process of buying them going to be different than how you normally would?

Yes, the notification will pretty much at any moment now...  Everyone's waiting on the edge of their seats to get that e-mail from CCI.  Definitely keep checking your inbox regularly.

As for the next round of badge resales, the second badge resale used the same EPIC "waiting room" system the first badge sale (for this year's passes) had.  There's a good chance that CCI will also be using that system for this round of badge sales as well.

The assumption is that the Member ID and email notification system is in place for reasons like this. If it is sent by email, CCI is aware of the ~6 hour lag from when the first batch goes out to when the last batch is received.

Badges should remain thru Epic. Click on link, go to virtual queue and wait for count to drop while NOT refreshing the page.

No clue on what the limit of badges per transaction is. Might be only 2 so if you need 3, you're gonna need help.

Of course this is all speculation based on prior experience. Hope this helps clear up grey areas. Any other question?

I think it will be interesting to see if they do a Facebook/Twitter post with very short/no notice, or do an email, which necessitates perhaps 24 hours notice.

There is every reason to think they will send out emails and not do a short notice.

I already had bought an adult badge. I recently signed up for a member ID for my youngest but still need to get her a 4-day with preview badge.

Then if there is availability, you should be able to buy her a badge, using her Member ID to do so.

Thanks for the clarification, I was confused by the 'adult or jr' ;)
If the youngest is regestered as a jr that's all you'll be able to buy with that member id. But I assume you already know that.

GAH! My gf never told me that she didnt put in for a refund on her badge until i just asked her, and now she has two passes. I know that sounds like a stupid issue since most people have none, but I hate that we could've had an extra $150 if we were on top of things.
