I just remember that after you bought the tickets, there was a long list of potential hotels, and it was through a 3rd party site.
And their rates weren't that great -- for the hotel we stayed at, it was slightly cheaper booking it directly with the hotel using my AAA discount than going through NYCC's third party.
It's not SDCC -- once you've bought NYCC tickets, you can really just go on any hotel booking site and book it.  Or you can go now, use a site where you don't have to put down a deposit or prepay, and book a room hoping you get tickets, and if not, cancel.

The only difference appear to be access to the panels...  sign me up for the Special Access Package...

Looking forward to it!!!

I would like to join the buy group for an Ultimate VIP badge if they do it this year.

My friend and I might be interested in a group as well -- but we're just looking for the regular 4 day badges.

We will be accommodating  folks who are interested in 3&4 day tickets.

A lot of effort is going into creating the sheets used for this sale.  I have to say they look pretty spiffy.  The sheets and being a member of the group is going to require effort and some amount of hoops by the user.  this is to compensate for the lack of a name attached to each ticket which in turn requires way way more trust within the buying group.

Keep in mind the folks running this group are veteran organizers of SDCC and have successfully gotten badges for a vast majority of their members.  The process & procedures may seem over the top to some- to them i say, you have a choice, to join & fully participate OR not & take what fate gives you.
I personally think stacking the odds in my favor is the preferred course of action.

So how could one join this group?
Would they have to be approved into the group by a higher up?

I think, in the next few days we'll get a google form set up & ready for folks to fill out-  this'll be to get into the private area- with questions like, have you used the nycc/sdcc buying group last year- etc
Hopefully that'll get us all into the private area where we can out line the specific process

It is in the groups best interested to have a fair amt of members- we are not trying to make it elitists but rather really really trying to protect the group members 
it is a huge leap of faith to buy and/or have someone buy a  ticket for you.  we need to make sure the process is as well thought out so  we can insure that everyone is protected as much as possible.
