So I wonder if this volunteer registration is also the pre-con shift registration.  If it is, then that's bad for me.  Since a pre-con shift has always been first come first served.  I totally forgot registration started today until a few minutes ago.

Maybe not.  We have until 5/13 to register.  There's no indication all returning volunteers are signing up today.

Phasers on Stun!!!

It does look like they changed how pre-con works this year.  In cons past, checking that box put you on the pre-con shift interest list.  Then shortly before the con the sign up email would go out.  You got to pick the day and time of the shift.  Now it seems they will just let you know if they have a shift for you.

"We will email you 10 days or so before the show if we have a pre-show assignment for you."

So I wonder if this volunteer registration is also the pre-con shift registration.  If it is, then that's bad for me.  Since a pre-con shift has always been first come first served.  I totally forgot registration started today until a few minutes ago.
If so, I still think you will be fine. The system didn’t work correctly this morning at 10 am PT, and no one completed any signup until around 11 am from what I saw, so you weren’t that late to the ballgame. I’m also sure not everyone has signed up yet as sessionka pointed out.

Two things:

1. It looks like we could register more than 1 person. Has anyone added another registrant?

2. I found it odd that even someone who did not do a shift, had their info auto-populated. It could lead to confusion.

I noticed that too.  I think it's because the software they are using is common across orders.  So placing a volunteer order is using the same mechanism as placing a badge order.  I'm curious if it works for volunteering.  If one person can register multiple volunteers then will that led to volunteer registration groups like badge buying groups?

Very interesting thoughts!

The added text "If you are not a Returning Volunteer: Do not continue as your registration will not be accepted at this time" could have been highlighted or added as a separate line.

IIRC The form was all one page with mandatory fields at the top (Emergency Contact info) and ended with the pre-con box right before Add to Cart. Other than the changes mentioned in this thread, looked the same as other years.

With "Round 1" closing tomorrow, good time to bump the Timeline. Make sure to be opted in to Marketing Emails!

Link to the Comic-Con 2022 Daily Volunteer Registration in the dropdown no longer shows the complete form and no "Add To Cart" option for Returning Volunteers.

So "Closed" for now.

Very late to the game. But for a new person here that has volunteer questions

1) Are pre con spots available during 5/16 open volunteer registration? Or is it only open to those only in returning volunteers?

2) is open volunteer registration more of a waiting list?

3) what happens if you can’t volunteer on their assigned date? Say flight doesn’t arrive on time, or say Covid exposure and cannot attend.

Sorry all for the multiple questions but I hope some can help me out. I’ve been following this thread in hopes to learn something new.
