Interestingly, NYCC just posted on Facebook that Fan Verification is open. Again? Still? You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Also got the email. Note the dates that fan verification will remain open. That means the general sale will take place sometime after May 3.

***

The day is here!

Fan Verification 2017 is now open through May 3 at 12:00 PM ET. If you, your bestie, or your favorite Asgardian God didn't create a profile last year, you will need to create one in order to have the opportunity to buy tickets to NYCC 2017. If you are new to the process and have questions, check out our FAQs.

Make sure your friends, family, and nemeses (maybe not that last one) fill out a profile if they're interested in attending NYCC 2017. Every ticket must be assigned to a Fan Verified email during checkout so whether you are buying for others or others are buying for you, everyone who wants a ticket needs to be Fan Verified.

Once you've filled out your Fan Verification profile you will get a confirmation email from ShowClix stating you've successfully been verified. Hang tight and keep your eyes and ears open for the general on-sale announcement.

Note: anyone filling out a Fan Verification profile between April 19 and May 3 at 12:00 PM ET will only have access to tickets during the general on-sale. They WILL NOT be eligible for the presale or be able to be assigned to tickets purchased during the presale. Sorry, but presale is for 2016 Fan Verified fans only.

Thanks,
NYCC Team

I applied for a Pro badge, but filled out the Fan Verification profile just in case.

Out of curiosity, will there also be a buying group set up for NYCC? It's probably too soon now to do that? I see one from 2016. I'm hoping a separate thread is made for it.

to be honest we need to get through  hotels for SDCC before we can turn our focus to nycc badges. 
remind me again in a couple of weeks? & we'll try to sort something out

If anyone is fan verified, you guys can shoot me an email and let me know and I will do my best to coordinate a buying group within the end of the day or by Fri evening the latest. It'll be helpful if u guys have a fb so I can contact you there as well. If you do, add me and let me know who u are... As inet me know you are interested in the nycc buying group otherwise I won't accept the request. My fb name is Haaj Ferogh. My email is [email protected]

This is a lot to handle all in 1 week.
SDCC hotels
SDCC parking
NYCC presale

Never have I ever been this stressed in my entire life.

Hey Alyssa - You have successfully managed this process for us in the past. Are you doing it again or delegating this task this year since the pre-sale is 4/29 Saturday?

And that's the day I gotta drive to Virginia. Darn.... I still hope I'm able to get a badge if not through my account then from a help from a friend.

Can you tell us how you plan to organize a buying group LaMaestra?

Thanks!!

Here is the buying group plan:

I will have ur email and days preferred.
Day of sales we click the link and the person who goes through will be responsible for buying for themselves and the 3 who come after them.
You keep going down the list till everyone has a ticket before time is up.
