Have people been getting emails about professional approvals ?before the showdown on open registration. Be nice if we got notification before Saturday’s.

Some people have and some haven’t. They did send a notice confirming that my application was turned in on time and that it’s still processing. That if I chose to participate in open registration and then was subsequently approved as a pro then I could get a refund for the open reg badges. They’re short staffed and there’s more and more applications each year.

How's it going w/Pro approvals?  Are there people who have gotten notifications, people still waiting (I know of at least one person still waiting for their renewal approval), etc?

Still waiting for my renewal as well. Hopefully we'll hear something soon.

Happy New Year, Comic-Con Pros!  Is anyone still waiting to hear back?  Does anyone know if CCI sends a definitive "I'm sorry you're not accepted as a Pro at this time" email?  My only reference for CCI timelines is pre-COVID so I don't know what to expect any more.  I'm just curious if there are a myriad of people who still have heard nothing yet, if anyone got a rejection email, etc.

My buddy is still waiting to hear. He emailed them last week and hasn't gotten a response so he went to his account to check and it still said his status is 'due' but he is able to add a Comic Con Pro Badge to his cart but the he's not able to get his WonderCon badge for free which it usually is as a professional.

It's all very very strange and a bit worry-some since it's a month past when he should have been notified.

Yeah I'm still waiting. I'm hoping that it's just because of the holidays and because they have a lot of applications to process that they have yet to get back to us. It's making me a little anxious though...

1. VERY cool they can get the SDCC Pro Badge; odd that they're still "due" but eligible for a 2024 badge  :o
2. I'm not due until post-2024 SDCC, and there's nothing for WonderCon badge procurement for me either: and I've heard similar from other Pros (including questions of 'are Pros still going to be able to get free WonderCon badges this year?!')

Pros should get WonderCon badges. They just become available really close to the event.

That's my recollection as well, and I kind of remember Pro badges going live relatively late in the planning process.  I'm a SoCA local so I don't typically deal with hotels or travel plans so I usually get the badges fairly last minute anyway.  I have seen others talking about it online though, which is the only reason why I brought it up.  I do appreciate clarification in order to calm folks' nerves that may be freaking out  :)

It's Comic Con. Freaking out comes with the territory. Haha

Ha, true enough!  While that hasn't always been the case for the event, it does seem to be the one constant of SDCC since 2007  :grin:

I finally received my professional approval email. This process took a little bit longer this year, but at least they're still reviewing submissions. I hope everyone else gets theirs approved here soon.
Next stop, hotels!

 :( i hate that im going to miss this year!
I completely missed my deadline for pro renewal and my mom, who's usually my guest, didnt tell me about the open reg until later!!

But I think Im still going to go and make this the year that I do everything, Outside!!

What can i say, the atoz company i work for kept me a little more busier than usual so i couldn't work on any creative things over the last 2 yrs as i worked to open a new robotic building!

but have fun Pros! It was fun the last 8 yrs! I'll be Pro in 2025! :)
