I think ReedPop sent three emails to the buyer only:

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.


Your daughter's account at You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login will show all the email addresses under "Price Level / Section" and "Name" (for the ticket days she bought for, but I think they only repeat the buyer's name)!

Someone else bought for me and I got the "Your NYCC 2017 Ticket Assignment" email sent directly to me from a do not reply email account. Maybe some emails were marked as spam?

I was able to get tickets to all four days.  My official time of purchase, as per my receipt, was 11.25am.  In retrospect, it was easy... but while I was on the queue, and I'm sure all of you felt the same way, it was very frustrating to see a static screen.  No way to tell if the screen is frozen or if things are, indeed, working smoothly.  If only there was some kind of counter letting us know where we are, that would make things a little more pleasant.


This is one of the things I commented on in an e-mail to NYCC boss Lance Fensterman after last year's con. I wrote: "Looking at a static screen only adds to the anxiety of the wait. The wait would go much, much easier if the screen constantly updated our position on the line, as well as how many tickets are left in each category. It may not improve one’s chances of getting tickets, but it will help prevent buyers’ nerves from getting any more frazzled than they have to."


Lance Fensterman wrote back: "Some of the things you point out are changeable and some are not as easy to change but what is most important is that you know you are heard and I promise you that you are."


Well, I may have been heard... but obviously I was ignored.

Degrees thereof ;) I agree with Computer Gary, that static screen is tough going. When next we meet, spinning wheel and status bar updates: "you are better than a static screen, The Force Is One With Me, you are better than a static screen, The Force Is One With Me..."

General sale will happen on a Saturday, again.

On a Thursday, people will receive a 48 hours headsup.

Which Thursday is unknown.

I was in the queue for less than 30 seconds before I was able to buy.
I purchased on my iPhone and not my laptop this year and it worked out in my favor.
