Yes, things certainly have come down to the wire this year. Not just pro badges, but so many other things (press, former children who now need junior badges, offsite announcements, autograph and exclusives announcements/lotteries). With all of the uncertainty, CCI didn't have as much time to organize as I'm sure they would have wanted. But it's all coming together, and that's testament to their hard work, and everyone's desire to make this event a success.
I agree but I wish that they would ask for more volunteers to help up front.

I don't know if they have volunteers during the year? This is stuff that would need extra help for the past 6 months.

I don't know about this specific case, but there are volunteers that work outside of comic-con.  For example, even before the museum opened, there were volunteers that worked there for a couple of years.

True, they do have regular volunteers at the museum. But I was referring to CCI and the management of cons.

I know.  I was just using the museum as an example.  There are volunteers, other than at the museum, that work outside of comic-con in preparation for comic-con.

I 100% agree with this. Maybe one could call me a San Diego 'homer,' or maybe because I've been around the block many times over the years with CCI, but I have a bit of 'margin of error' leeway with CCI being a non-profit and relatively small organization (though, when I checked on their PPP info they have more employees on the books than I would've guessed).  As a married dad w/a 20 year old (meaning I've been married for going-on 24 years, dating my now-wife for 26 years) I had an epiphany long-ago that my wife and I are in this together: we have the same hopes/dreams/goals for our family and while we sometimes (often?) have different ideas on how to achieve those goals at the end of the day we both want the same stuff.  Whenever I get too frustrated I remember that and it calms/center me.
I feel the same when it comes to CCI: we both want THE best Comic-Con experience this year and every year, we both work hard all year to plan the week, and we both hope to walk away Monday post-SDCC in a satisfied place.  Some years have been better than others, but at the end of the day I've never had a truly 'bad' experience, going back to 2000.  I'll absolutely give CCI the benefit of the doubt every time, as they've earned that and more from me over the years.  How they've seemingly been able to bounce-back from COVID shutdown has been amazing, especially considering how much of the situation is not in their hands (city/state rules, attendees, participants, etc).  They've been catching up since late winter 2020 and it feels like they're on the verge of delivering us a Comic-Con similarly epic as many other years & I can't wait to see what goes down in just 3 weeks from today!

Has anyone been able to access the Comic Con App? I've had it for years, but when I open it, it requires user name and password. I tried my membership ID but no luck.

Frankly, as a person in computers, I do not assume it will have a lot of the features we're use to.
I am just hoping what features it does have won't be buggy

Any maps/written instructions on where the professional entrance is located during preview night? Will there even be a separate entry this year?

2nd this. I've always heard about it, but haven't used it (if it still exists)

No, it's rite of passage to figure out where it is.

Honestly, I didn't find it until my 3rd year as a pro. I heard about it, but no security person I asked seemed to know where it was or even what it was. I'd ask other pros and they either didn't know or were evasive. No idea why. Anyway, go through the Sails Pavilion as if you're heading toward 6BCF or one of those conference rooms. Once you exit the Sails Pavilion, take a left and go one flight down the escalator. Once you reach the landing, you should see signs. The hallway they line us up in is right around the corner.

How strict are they on the pro pick up?  I am a guest but my pro can't get in until Friday at the earliest.  I think it is BS he has to pick up both badges since they're usually mailed, but whatever.  If I have a signed document with his photo id explaining the situation do you think they would let me pick up?  That's like 2 nights of hotel wasted :(
