I ran across an outfit today for a group reselling/scalping SDCC 2017 badges for over 1K a badge for 4 days.  If you are looking for tickets and in a moment of desperation consider doing this - please remember that per SDCC:  Resale of badges is strictly prohibited and will result in the automatic cancellation of your purchase.   No matter how desperate you get - just don’t do it.  Scalping hurts everyone. Join a buying group to increase your chances and follow other great advice on this site.

Yep, since the Member ID system is closed to new accounts, that means that open registration will be coming very soon...

I saw someone posted something like this on twitter and laughed myself at the thought of it, it won't happen but it would be funny in a cruel kind of way :D

I can't find the exact post again but it was something like:

"Maybe they'll announce the open sale as 1st of April and then when you get in to the open registration then it pops up as Haha April Fools" and the real return sale will be the 8th of April.

Timeline from last year:
Member ID closed for new member IDs: February 11
Open Reg: February 20

If they followed the same general timeline-it would be April 1st

BUT: I think they just closed it early because they will be busy with Wondercon. I definitely don't think the timeline will be the same this year. Just posting it in case anyone was wondering.

Maybe they just saw the flood of new member IDs being made and wanted to cap it while they still could...  >:D

If they did it during Wonder Con, that would really suck.

There is no way they'd do it during wonder con. To do sales during their sister con is a big slap in the face to then and to WC. They'll lose so much business in just 2 or 3 hrs. I see it happening April 8th.
