And now my anxiety can truly begin because I'm out of the country from January 14th-21st. (I know my group can handle the buying. The anxiety if it falls on those dates is that I will be in Cuba with ZERO cell service and very little internet access. I might not even know until I get home!) Please dear Odin make this the first week of January.

In a way, this is sort of relieving for me, since I have been applying for seasonal work on the weekends, and the thought of having to work around pre-reg was giving me anxiety. I guess that worry is gone...although now, I have the anxiety of waiting until 2017 for the sale! Sigh... ;)

My new vote of January 7th is 100% wishful thinking. My best guess would be January 14th on account of I will be on a plane.

It looks like that even though it was required that 2016 paid pro guests had to have member IDs - that doesn't qualify  for returning registration.  :(

Oof, checked in as I have 40 minutes more at the office and saw this. Headache just increased substantially. I was really hoping for a November Pre-Reg to get things out of the way and so that gen reg would possibly still be in February/late-January next year. Also to maybe get some more consistency going, but alas.

Wishful thinking as always.

Yeah, in general if you were a guest badge (even if paid) you didn't get pre-registration status in past years as well. It's happened different friends of mine multiple times where they went as a guest, and then only had a shot during gen reg. They probably just wanted guests to have a Member ID because of the RFID tap-in purpose where you may need an ID.

Just got an official email from SDCC with that same info that was in our Member ID registration info page today.

Forgot to put, my new vote is for January 21, 2016... only reason I really have is CCI seems to enjoy putting gen reg around my birthday (2/23) and I'm hoping that can somehow stay that way (if only because it means things aren't dragged out too long.)

They did a February pre-reg and March gen-reg one year, so a month apart isn't completely unfeasible. So I'm hoping if we are putting everything out to 2017 it can be mid-late-January pre-reg, mid-late February gen-reg, followed by a mid-late March hotel lotto.

Plus January 21 will be two days before my brother's birthday, might as well keep it around memorable dates in my mind, right? Seeing as they often do it with my own birthday (which usually means I completely forget about my own birthday and if they do this, his present can be me organizing his SDCC badges for him, hopefully because I do everything. I kid about that being his only present.)

It could definitely be on the 21st since I'm on a plane that day too! That's sort of how my luck has been going lately. Maybe 2017 will reset it.

I just hope it's far enough after the holidays that everyone is settled back at home so we don't have a lot of flakey travel internet happening during the sale.  For some reason, I'm a little nervous about the extended uncertainty of it all.  Oh well, looking forward to it regardless!

Yeah honestly, normally I try to put some extra logic into my reasoning... but I'm too tired, it's been a long day, and it being near a big birthday is good enough reasoning in my books at this point.

Hopefully it won't be while you're on a plane! Though, depending on where you're flying a lot of planes do have pretty reliable wi-fi now, and it may be worth to pay for access for a bit for SDCC. The only issue my friend had in the last reg (maybe hotel lotto?) while she was flying was she was flying internationally, so they couldn't actually put the wi-fi up until they hit US airspace (she was headed back into the country from Costa Rica.)

I feel you, I was considering scheduling a trip out east to visit family in early-mid January and now I'm like "Well... that's out now." Not sure I want to make the trip during the holiday season either to go earlier.

I'll be flying back from Cuba so it'll be a similar situation. If it was that day my flight would actually be after registration time but there's not really reliable internet there either so I couldn't even sit in the hotel and do it. ( I have a great group though and I'm sure they can handle it.)

I wonder why so late?  Making some changes to the system maybe?
