First they took away SENYC this year; and now they took away the VIPs' pass.... I hope they won't take away the artist alley next.

Can't wait for this "live" QA where they answer questions with pre-scripted PR answers.

as much as i want to believe this would not be the case, I'm certain that it will be exactly like that.

Also I have no questions they would actually answer in full. filling out a verification system is self explanatory enough for me.

If you can only use the link that comes in your email, and you're not supposed to share links, that sounds like each person can be logged in once, like SDCC -- right?  Thinking that might help their server issues.

From what NYCC has been posting on their FB page, it looks like the 'Fan Verification' form will have more questions on it about our likes, etc.  A good opportunity to find out some things about us. We shall see tomorrow.

I prefer if they keep the verification system to pertinent information, if they want to ask about my likes etc i assume those types of questions should be optional

first step is to give a cell phone number, so they can give you a code, what if you do not have a cell phone, also i don't see one box that says they will not share that info out to sponsors, etc...

I keep trying to enter my cell phone number for the access code, but I am consistently receiving this message:

"Failed to text access code User has exceeded the request limit. Try again in a minute or two."

I'm willing to bet that far more users are trying to sign up for this than they anticipated...

I completed verification, but the first time I clicked on the link, it timed out.  Bodes real well for the ticket sale.

I've already had some issues.

I had the same as above but refreshed the page and it worked. But then got the same message when entering the code and even refreshing didn't help.
