NYCC Lottery Open for Legacy Fans
« on: September 16, 2019, 11:14:33 AM »
The panel, autograph and exclusives lottery is now open for legacy fans (which means you had a verified fan email in 2018). You access the link directly through the lottery page on the NYCC website if you haven't received an email You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Lottery for non-legacy/press will open next week.

*Unlike CCI you cannot go back and edit before it closes, you can only submit once*

EDIT: Just saw this. *facepalm* That sucks.

I am apparently not considered a Legacy fan. Is this a press thing?

Have to admit, i am a bit confused as to why all of the Entertainment Earth Exclusives are listed separately? Granted, not interested in them all, but all the effort and time to get just 1 and if your lucky 2? Seems to me that they will have a 1000 people in line each day just because they won 1 item. How can they possibly sell all their merchandise, or have the time to check out all the people. They could have at least grouped together similar items and then given people the choice to buy all in the group or just 1. Seems silly to lottery off each $10 item, 1 at a time. If they were high end collectibles that might be different.  If they are all limited to like 200 pieces, i could see that too... but we all know Entertainment Earth typically has high quantities.

Weird, yesterday it wasn’t letting me enter (legacy but press) and today it is. Guess they changed their minds.

I will try again - I wonder if they had a lot of complaints about it.

I can tell you that some of the options changed at some point. Not sure about which ones, but i can say for sure that early on i was able to add a 20th Century Fox panel on Thursday, but later on it was no longer there. Seems odd that they woud be changing panels in the middle of the first day of the lottery entries. Did i waste one of my entries...or more?

Ugh, I signed up for that one too - probably won't change anything else at this point but I think I'll wait for the public lotteries before I submit for the rest of the days.

If you have issues with accessing the lottery as a legacy, email the lottery team. I had issues and they got back to me quickly and now it's working!

I'm a legacy fan but the lottery isn't working for me. I keep getting an error at the last step (after all selections have been made for all days, when I click "submit"). It says "Error occurred during the process.Friend not found. Try again?" The only friend I listed is my wife and we are both fan verified and have 4 day badges which have already been activated for each of us. I checked our showclix accounts and all is good there.

I emailed NYCC and they told me to clear my browser's cache, which I tried but didn't work. I tried chrome, firefox and IE and have the same error on all.

Is anyone else having this problem?

I was having the same problem. I finally got it to work by using Safari. No other browser would work for me.

OMG! Thank you so much!!!! That worked. I'm not sure why only some people have this problem and not others but using safari did the trick. Woohoo!
Now it's time to pray I get into the Trek panel.

Why are we now receiving another email asking to verify our panel friends?

Hmmmm....I didn’t get any email like that. It doesn’t make sense really, the system is supposed to check that they are verified when you enter them.

I think it's because people were having issues entering additional fan verified e-mails for panels.  It would bounce me back with an error at the end of the process, the only way I got it to work was by not entering any e-mails.  I know several people who had this issue.  I e-mailed them and they couldn't fix it, so I think this was their attempt to make things right.

Apparently, if you're a legacy fan who entered the lottery last week and didn't get chosen, you can enter again during the regular period.
