They did have them in the last few years before COVID. Must be another (hopefully temporary) cost-cutting measure. I thought my mailer was empty at first when it arrived last night; it wasn't totally obvious to me at first from the photos that there was no hard plastic card in the center anymore.

I had the exact same experience/thought progression today. It’s so flimsy and easy to lose, especially over the course of travel. I misplaced my old lanyards when I moved a couple of years ago, so I’m definitely going to invest in buying a new one before I leave for SDCC. I’ll feel a whole lot better if that flimsy little card is attached to something more substantial.

I was so happy about having a Con and getting my badge, I completely forgot about the box/pin/booklet.

I'm wondering if we'll get a box/pin/booklet when we pick up our bags/lanyards, or are they completely forgoing the extras this year.

I think it's cost cutting.  I heard that volunteers won't get a t-shirt this year, we'll get a pin instead.

IMO signs are pointing at this being a light con.  Not Turkeycon light but not a full on normal con.  I'm expecting it be about 80% normal.

Badges arrived today!  Sadly not the 4 plus preview I’m accustomed to but it’s better than nothing!  Just grateful there’s a con again
Fun isn’t something one considers when preparing for Comic-Con, but attending does put a smile on my face

80% of 130,000 is 104,000.  I'll take it.   :)

I've been doing rough monitoring of the hotel occupancy.  It's slowly starting to fill up.

Hi fellow fans! I met a handful of amazing folk last November at the SE con in San Diego and hope to meet up again sometime this July if at all possible!
I was going to sheepishly post that I didn’t not get my badge yet but (if you don’t already know) your SDCC account will provide a tracking number so you can see when your badge has been shipped and just chew on your nails until it hits your mailbox.

One member of my group still doesn't have a tracking number on their account?  Think its time to reach out about it? Or should I keep telling them to be patient.

I've been doing rough monitoring of the hotel occupancy.  It's slowly starting to fill up.

Lower attendance would explain cost cutting.  They have less revenue to work with.  Inflation is also a factor.  Everything is more expensive than it was when they set those badge prices 3 years ago.  Which is why it never made sense to me for them to rollover badges.
