I guess it's really hard to get all of your staff on the same page????
Sorry I wasn't able to meet people at an SSG Lunch I assume most here went to while at the Con.
I can't remember why I was busy at that hour, but I made everything I wanted to this year:
Sons of Anarchy
Only Walking Dead had to be missed because it was scheduled concurrently with Star Wars.
It turns out my cousin was called in at the last minute for Sunday security, she was working afternoon shift at Hall D's door, I must have missed her by an hour, I almost went back that way but ended up hanging out with Steve the rest of the afternoon instead. My cuz said they didn't supply parking and didn't really give them instruction beyond "badges yes, no badges no", with that info she caught a WHOLE FAMILY who had gotten through the front doors and were heading into the hall without badges.
I am quite curious of what Chux has to say about the SDCC2012 kiosks, I haven't heard much but what I heard was worrying.
I know it's early, but did everyone get their ID #'s and have everything taken care of for this year? Anyone just say forget it? I'm all good, just need a place to stay, but that's more fun to come huh? I hope they makes changes for the better this year.
I'm registered but haven't been notified to buy my tickets yet.
I had a different kind of pass last year and I wasn't allowed to buy this year's tickets on site.
So I became an "e-mail member," and await my chance to get ripped-off.
No, but you have to be prepared for disappointment. Half the tickets were held back for selling online, and there doesn't seem to be a first-come-first-served order to the member ID thing, so you could have gotten your member id first and still not get your tickets if they sell out fast.
I was just looking at this last night because I was at the SDCC website for the Wondercon page (they've moved Wondercon to Anaheim) and it needs the same member ID thing. Very convoluted, but it could fix some of the problems of people buying extra passes.
What about scalping the passes you can buy, JT?
Is that still possible?
So they even check if say, I sell my pass to a girl named Carly, and SHE approaches the doors wearing a nametag that says Josh?
Who knows if they'll implement tighter security regarding badges. Actually, come July I can ask my cousin, she worked security last year on Sunday and will be working the whole show this year, but they don't tell them in advance anything like this. Maybe they'll make everybody wear wristbands color-coded by gender or age.
