I am missing the blue circle.  That was my first experience buying badge for Comic Con.  By God's grace, I got in for my first try.  All available badges were on one page.  I selected the ones I wanted, paid, confirmed, and I was out.  easy, peasy.

They've made this so complicated.

As someone who has worked in tech for many years, and has seen some debacles, this feels like configio 'shoe horning' in CCI's specs.  The first clue was last year, when we were supposed to log in first, before getting into the waiting room, and then the change on the fly of just letting everyone into the waiting room.

Ahhh the blue circle of death. I miss/don't miss that thing.

Anyone remember about a decade ago when CCI utilized a purchase system called Leapfrog, or atleast it had the word Frog in it? Now that system was buggy.

Don't forget last year when there was a 'waitlist' to get PN if you couldn't buy it... and then later they reneged and said that there was no waitlist.

Ugh. I still kind of think that the 'waitlist' thing was just a Configlio option/feature that they forgot to turn off and then didn't know what to do with. I *really* wish they would test their systems more. Or, possibly, at all.

Now that we have a date (November 18) we can get started planning. Who is participating in this sale?

I'll be participating. Fingers crossed I have better luck than I did with returning registration.

I think this will be the first time since 2016 or 2017 or so that I'll be participating in Open without needing to get badges for anyone in my circle. I'll still be trying to get in to help a friend, but there's no real pressure there since she mainly wants to go just to see what the hoopla is about (her husband has gone with their nephew for the past two SDCCs, so she's curious), and if she doesn't get a badge, it's not a big deal. A stress-free registration is something I'm looking forward to. (no angst until Hotelpocalypse!)

I was able to get all days that I wanted, but I'll be helping a friend get the highly coveted day of Saturday.

You know, it's amazing... even when you don't have any skin in the game, those butterflies still come up, and the nerves hit if you get into the buying screen... and you still feel disappointment if your walking man isn't moving. The power of SDCC is strong.

Confirming that those who have purchased PN can indeed try and purchase for others.  Taken directly from the CCI instructions for Saturday's OR .  I saw it in the info AFTER logging in to my member ID. Now I feel completely at ease about this.

It is 2024, and I am still asking...where's my flyin' car??!! @fannishmarcia

So if you are purchasing for a PN for others (who already have 4 days) then I go to register another user, then it will have the Purchase Preview Night link at the top? 

This is what messed our group up last year, since we didn't see the link.

Does anyone have a video of the process for purchasing PN for others?  Thanks in advance.

'Twas the night before Open Registration...

Just checked my member ID portal for the umpteenth time.  Credit card info wiped again.  I am just gonna wait until tomorrow to enter it again.

Waiting for my little walking man to march to victory! :sport_25:

Good luck to all.
