I haven't gotten email about this. It's been up on eventbrite and says it's free for charter members and $5 for general admission. Since it mentions a promo code I take it that charter members should have gotten an email with a promo code. Did people get an email about this?
Comic-Con Museum Charter Members seemed to have gotten an e-mail.  I got one, though when I logged in yesterday am before 8 the GET OUT free passes were already 'sold out' (though you could still purchase the $5 tix).  I got tix for the event next week and look forward to going with my kids

Nevermind.  It turns out they did send me an email.  My email program just didn't download it.  I went to my CCM account and clicked on the last email that I got, from 1/30.  When I did it downloaded 3 more emails from CCM. One of which is the invite for this event.  Stupid email program.

I think it's a good idea that they are charging for general admission. It should cut down on the number of no shows as well as allow people that will really attend to do so. If it was free it would be sold out by now since people would sign up just because it was free. By charging a small amount only people that are serious about showing up will do so now. People that would have attended previous events didn't simply because it was sold out even though at the event there are so many no shows.

If there's something I want to attend, I go stand by. I haven't been disappointed yet ;)

To add, as a Member seeing the free option is already 'sold out' for GET OUT, I can still pay the relatively cheap admission price and see it anyway!

I wished they emailed this out instead of tweeting it.  They didn't email it out right?

I did get an email about the Eisner thing. Check your spam or settings?

Not in my spam.  Not in my account at all.  I unfairly maligned my email program previously.  That's not the problem.  I logged into the account directly and it's just not there.  Furthermore I looked at the raw headers for the mail I got last time that was delayed.  I got the email about the Wondercon event after the last Museum Insider.  It should have been the other way around.  Looking at the headers, the email arrived the moment my email program notified me.  It was delayed.  It wasn't sent until then.  If this model holds, then I should receive that email from yesterday today or tomorrow.

I did have the same problem last time.  From what I can tell from the headers, it's on their end.  The mail is being sent late.  The last emails that showed up late I got 48 seconds after they sent it.  It's just that they sent it a couple of days late.

This is a problem.

More proof that I never win a raffle, with the number of items raffled off and the number of people there, there was about a 25% chance of winning something.  I didn't win anything.
