What that means is that you have to register the badge on their site. Last year this meant that you had to enter the number on the back of the badge on their site and your email. That was it. There was no RFID at the con itself.

I  dont know how many cons use rfid, but if it cause people try sell their badge to profit then cons may go that way if they discover that anyone tries to sell it at anytime after they get one at the con or by mail any i guess.

Wondering why they want us to "activate" the badge, when there is really no reason too. (assuming there is no RFID and scanning of the badges).

At NYCC we had to register and activate the badge so that it would scan through the scanners. Think it's just a ruse to trick people who may consider making illegal badges?

I'm trying to find it on their site, but have not found anything.  If memory serves me right, NYCC was very specific about the new system of scanning the badges in and out etc...

I don't think you can enter the Funko lottery if you don't register.

I can tell if some cons if not all are starting to use tech to either keep track how many actually go into con and check things out and who try to buy and resale for profit but dont know cause dont check if the cons have a crew who do know where to look to see who try to sale a badge any by chance. it was never liked that when i first went to a con, but saw how easy it was to just pass off a badge hand made and let anyone just walk in and act as if paid for it but never did. so i guess soon all cons will use scanners at any con if they notice or hear about resalers try profit of a badge they got at anytime.

OK, i gotta say- and i mean this in the nicest of ways, since i am certainly *not good* with the grammar, You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login ,

your comments are wicked confusing. I really, really have a hard time following what you're trying to say. Believe me, i say this as a person who 'gets' the difficulty in communicating! I *suck* at writing- ask anyone on the blog. But i've learned to try and separate thoughts/ideas into chunks & space them out with breaks. That seems to help get my ideas across and as a result folks respond to the comments more.

again, this is not an 'adminy' thing and is just from a fellow forum member because i think you've got a lot to share with us- it's just that we can't figure it out most of the time

Doesn't really say on the registration page for the lottery but we'll see in a few days. Just have a valid badge for that day.

Extremely weak, but 2016 was worse.
They've never had mind-blowing last minute surprises before...not expecting that to change this year. I think Tennant/Piper is going to end up being this year's last biggest announcement.
For me the list began and ended with Billie Piper and David Tennant. I never care about meeting celebrities but cannot contain my excitement over meeting these two!!!

Yes, but they want to make sure of that before you put your name in the lottery. You will have to have your badge number (or at least the confirmation number on your badge barcode email) to enter. That's how they did it last year. It makes sense, because otherwise people could enter multiple times with multiple email addresses.

So they want us to activate our badges...meh. It's a very easy process that only takes 10 seconds to do. Just do it; one less thing to worry about. ;)

I just got a notification that I won the Del Rey lottery to purchase an autographed copy of the Last Jedi exclusive cover! It's a gift for my dungeon master... he's going to love it!
