Fan Verification Extended for 24 Hours

Hey NYCC Fans! This year we’ve rolled out the new Fan Verification process to help keep Tickets in the hands of our Fans. We understand with this being a new process, people might have missed the deadline. In an effort to give as many Fans as possible the opportunity to purchase New York Comic Con 2016 Tickets, we’re reopening Fan Verification for 24 Hours until Wednesday, June 15 at 2:00 PM EDT. This is your FINAL opportunity to create a Fan Verification profile. Make sure all your friends and family fill out a profile if they’re also interested in going to NYCC 2016.

it does seem to be open, soft re-open? or extension?

They've been on FB all day saying it's closed and telling people tough so this should be interesting if it has been reopened

Though to be 100% honest I always assumed this was always going to re-open. no company would allow unsold tickets to go unsold, knowing they can sell them.

Seems as though they were having some technical issues approaching the deadline last night, so this could be a result.  Or they don't have the numbers they want yet.

me personally, I think it is a numbers thing and a way to get those last couple of complainers on their FB page an opportunity to get in

again though if they are still thousands of signups short of reaching last years numbers they'll re-open again

Well, well, well....we will see how far this goes.  I would really like to know how many have become fan verified.  NYCC has not said there were any glitches in the process so, I agree with others...the numbers must not be where they want them to be yet.

I'm thinking the same thing the numbers aren't there which makes me fill bad for signing up 4 accounts that will not be attending, but I'm sure they are probably taking that into account too.

Don't feel bad at all.  They have been strongly encouraging everyone who might even think they might possibly, by any stretch of their imagination want to buy a ticket to NYCC--to fan verify.    I have told everyone I know who might want to go to at least fill it out.  I know some of them won't go, but just in case....

Whether it's true or not, it's interesting that Reedpop is even acknowledging the notion that it's due to lack of fan verification.

They would never admit that it was due to a lack of signups, I read that as whiners whined and we caved. I hate to say it but I think this goes a bit to the 'entitlement/fairness' thing going around. Like everyone is a winner, no losing teams in little league, can't voice an opinion any longer. Oh you missed the deadline, complain so then a company backs off and re-opens. Fans had a month to sign up, it was not a hard signup, or too time consuming, but they didn't. Where is their owning up to the fact that they did not follow the rules and therefore missed out and accepting of that.

Which brings me to my point their official statement as you posted above is that because of numerous requests to open up fan verification because fans missed the deadline, then can enough numerous fans complain about the lack of VIP tickets and let them change their mind. They seem to give in to the demands of those people lets get the VIP tickets back. I accepted they got rid of them, but if all it takes is enough complaining in one shot that the issue needs to be re-addressed, well heck [member=1]alyssa[/member] can attest I am a master arguer

It is a little bit of a moot point though cause RP was always going to reopen that fan verification at a later date.

[update 1:20 PM] waiting for 2:01 to come around to see who starts complaining that they missed the deadline

I think it will be next week.
Usually those that get emails will have been notified by 12pm EST.
Didn't get an email.

Since it's now past noon, looks like it won't be this week either.  Crap.
