Apologies but that's what I thought I was inferring; where I would pay the applicable fees or if someone would rather I would transfer a room and then the difference of the cost between the room and the badge would be covered, hence no extra compensation would be given. Sorry if that didn't come across accurately.

I have removed the original post. If you’d like to restate your request offering only direct compensation for the cost of the badge feel free to do so. If you have a room to trade or share please head over to the Housing area and do so there. Thanks.

I'm sorry about that, I just figured  if you're allowed to offer the cost of a badge for a badge and you're allowed to offer the cost of a room for a room; then you'd also be allowed to offer a room for a badge plus what ever the remaining cost of the room is. I assumed that if it were an equal and fair exchange that it might be allowed. I didn't realize that that would constitute any extra compensation being involved. Sorry again, I meant no disrespect I guess I just missed something. Thanks for your understanding and I'll repost with a proper request.

Hi everybody,

Apparently my last request post did violate a rule about extra compensation; I sincerely apologize, that was not my intent. I was under the impression that if the compensation was of equal amounts it wouldn't constitute anything "extra" (I guess I was wrong and I'm sorry). So with that said I'd like to try this one more time if possible -

And I know this is a Hail Mary/fat chance/yeah right/no way in hell/down to the wire/last minute/Nth hour/WTF type of request (and now I believe no longer breaking any forum rules). But, I screwed up and was hoping against hope that someone somewhere might still have an available guest badge they'd be willing to spare. If allowed, I'd be willing to pay whatever the exact fees are associated with it (without any 'extra compensation'). Again, I know this is last minute, but if anyone could do anything I would greatly appreciate it. Please PM me or email me as soon as possible and thanks to anyone who bothered taking the time to even read this and I hope someone out there is still able to help me out.

Thanks,
Nick

Has anyone contacted Pro Reg recently? Sent an email to confirm some info on my badge but haven’t heard back and am starting to freak out, haha. They normally get back to me in a couple hours.

Hello everyone. Greetings!

So, I've made a horrible mistake - I thought the badge deadline was May 13th for pros but that was the shipping deadline. I dragged my butt registering, but I already made plans for traveling including expensive international non-refundable tickets.

I e-mailed last week but haven't heard back, has anyone else been in the scenario? I'm completely stressed out of my gourd now, absolutely gutted and incredibly depressed. Has anyone had any experience with hopefully processing a late Pro App last year?

Not to be an old school marm here, but why would you go as far as booking non-refundable travel and not just registering your badge. We were able to register back in November for crying out loud. Or are you saying you were never approved? I'd say if you've not been approved by now, you won't be but stranger things have happened I guess.

I was approved, just needed to confirm my badge.

I have no excuses - life just came at me fast and I had this date marked on my calendar. I booked airfare last year, always stay outside the convention center, so I don't pay too close attention to SDCC traveling news until the summer - and this was marked on my things to do this month.

Ehh, it was a huge mistake and I have no excuses like I said, but I'm hoping someone has had some kind of interaction with CCI about this situation for reference.

My only similar issue was that I emailed them and asked to register a guest for WonderCon after the deadline and they did it for me, but it was WonderCon and it was a guest. I don't know if they are as forgiving or willing to listen when it comes to SDCC.

I still haven't heard anything back and I'm just hoping for a verification on the address I put.

Wonder if they are swamped or have just shut down the shop for a bit.
