I hope this isn't an indication of this Saturday.

Considering how returning registration went, it probably is.  They had these last weeks to fix the bugs from that.  I would think that this is the test run for any new code.

That's why I was hoping open reg would be next year because of the fiasco.

I think the page is loaded at a random time, so a separate queue wouldn't be needed to manage traffic. CCI, these aren't Fundays tickets!

CCI already had the waiting room set for Returning.  I think they want to just do a Poltergeist soft drop like the Pro-Reg "it's here" thing.

Done.  Remember to check the pre-con shift box at the bottom.

I don't think so.  The server wasn't unresponsive or even slow at all.  It just didn't work.  Then they turned it on and now it works for everyone.

This is what it says on the bottom
We do have some pre-convention volunteer assignments available. If you are available to volunteer the Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday before the convention, July 17, 18 or 19, please check the box below. This does not guarantee that you will get an assignment before the show. We will email you 10 days or so before the show if we have a pre-show assignment for you. If you do not hear from us, then you will get an assignment when you check in during the show (Thursday-Sunday July 20-23, 2023).

I just got an email from Comic-Con asking me to do an interview on June 3 for a volunteer staff position. Did all volunteers get this or am I special (like my school counselor said)?

They used to do that when they first starting selling badges online: one day it was "coming soon," the next day sales were live (this was before the entire event sold out in 90 mins)
