Mini-FAQs for Open Registration

1] If I participated in returning registration, could I help my family or friends during open registration?

Yes, but only if you don't already have a 4-day badge with Preview Night.

This means:
If you have a 4-day badge without Preview Night, you should still be eligible to participate in open registration. 

If you have only one day or any combination of Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday badges, then you can still participate in open registration.


Note:
In some years, CCI may say that if you got a Saturday badge or a 4-day badge with Preview Night, then your Member ID is not eligible to participate in open registration.  For Comic-Con 2019, if you already have a 4-day badge with Preview Night, then you cannot participate in open registration.

Q: How do I know if I am eligible for Comic-Con 2019 Open Registration?

A: To see if you are eligible, log in to your Comic-Con Member ID account and look in the top, right corner. If you see the green “OK CC’19 Attendee Open Reg” flag (and it suddenly smells like Patrick Stewart) you are able to participate!

Open Registration is open to new attendees, anyone who has not yet purchased or registered for the Comic-Con 2019 Preview Night option, and any caped superheroes who’s mom is named Martha. You must have a valid and confirmed Comic-Con Member ID account, created prior to 9:30 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) on October 31, 2018, to participate.

2] Could I help other people get badges if I already got the badges I wanted from returning registration?

Yes, absolutely!

If you are eligible to participate in open registration and if you already got the badges you wanted from returning registration, you can still purchase badges for others. (Just remember to clear your name and Member ID when you get to the purchase page.  Once you do that, you'll be able to purchase for three other people!)

If you're in one of the forum buying groups, be there for your fellow group members and coordinate with your group leaders on how this will work.

From Today's Toucan,

You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login


Similar to the Nov 29, 2017 Toucan post's language, which also happened on a Thursday, 9 days before the 2017 sale.

edit:  Sorry, got the dates off.  That was Wed, November 22, 2017 post, 17 days before the sale.

However, Member ID cut off for that sale happened on the following Monday!

Nice to have it Nov 10th that means if you don't win the grand prize or second prize from omaze tomorrow, then they'll give you time to buy your own :)

Honestly, I wasn't expecting it to be in November at all, so I wasn't considering that I'm out of town 2 Saturday's this month. Luckily, the 10th is one of the ones I'm not out of town. While my main group got all of their badges in returning reg, we have friends and family now being added for a smaller buying group, within my normal one, to get badges in open registration.

I won't lie, I would have been very annoyed to be doing open reg on a laptop in the middle of Dreamhack Atlanta during semi-finals.

So I'm glad it's Nov 10th. The earlier the better. I feel like they're really moving up the timelines, or is it just me feeling that?

They've really been moving up the timelines since the year where returning registration was in the spring.

It does feel this way. But this was the older timelines before the new system issues set things back
