I just went to my ticket link for the heck of it and it seems like they did reopen fan verification. 

edit: It does not show up on the NYCC website but it does if I click on my used unique link.

Now that is quite interesting.  I tried with my unused ticket link and don't see anything about fan verification.  I also looked on their FB page and didn't see any announcement about opening fan verification.  Hmmm...

I don't think fan verification opened back up.
If you click on your unused ticket link, it'll just bring you to the store where you could get your merchandise and Thursday passes.

Yep...that is what I see.  RTFirefly clicked through a used ticket link and seems to be able to look at something else.  Hope someone will post a screen shot of what they see through a used link.

Think you guys have some misconceptions on the ticket link. From what I remembered, you're allowed to use it once per day

Here is what I see:



When I  click the link I go to the fan verification page.  I have not gone much further since I am already verified and got my tickets.

Thank you for the screenshot. Happy you got your tickets, and hope more fans get tickets somehow, while leaving scalpers in the cold.

Looks like they are re-opening fan registration on Monday!!:

"Dear NYCC Fans,

We have heard your feedback about the NYCC Fan Verification system and recognize new processes are hard. In an effort to give everyone a second crack at nailing this Fan Verification system, we are going to reopen Fan Verification so that Fans who did not go through the first round of Verifications can be added to existing orders. Fan Verification will reopen on Monday, July 11 at 9:00 AM EDT.

In order to be attached to an existing order, you must fill out a Fan Verification application by Tuesday, July 12 at 12:00 (noon) PM EDT. Fans that Verify after this date and time will not have the opportunity to be added to existing orders, but will have the opportunity to purchase reclaimed and cancelled Single Day Tickets at a later date.

Valid Fan Verification profiles can then be attached to existing NYCC Ticket orders between Wednesday, July 13 at 12:00 PM (noon) EDT and Thursday, July 14 at 11:59 PM EDT. After Thursday, July 14 at 11:59 PM EDT, any Tickets that do not have a Fan Verification profile attached will be cancelled and refunded. There will be absolutely no exceptions after this deadline.

As another reminder:  Every person (over the age of 13 years old) that wants to buy a Ticket for NYCC or have a NYCC purchased for them MUST have a Fan Verification profile created, using a unique email address. Each NYCC Ticket requires a valid Fan Verification profile attached to it, otherwise it will be cancelled and refunded.

Reclaimed and cancelled Single Day Tickets will go on sale at a later date. Anyone that has gone through the Fan Verification process at any point will have the opportunity to buy these Tickets.

That's just great for the people who didn't buy tickets because they read the rules, realized they messed up and used it as a learning experience.  Now my friends who didn't buy tix because one of them didn't verify are screwed.  I don't get why they just didn't leave it for people who followed the rules...

Wouldn't surprise me if they open up fan verification again.

Highly doubt they'll open up fan verification again.

Why should they open it up again.

Called it!

Where does it say it was always going to reopen? As recent as June 29th they said they have no plans to reopen.

Sure, punish those that paid attention the first time. Good for some of the people on this board though.
