If you have a member ID then you received the email that is your second chance at getting your comic con badge for the 2012 season. The email was sent out on Sunday March 25, letting members know the date and the time.
But of course, people who are excited to report any story on this year’s comic have let slip again that badges are going on sale and some online sources even listed the link that accompanied the email. Some people think, hey who cares if the link is posted?
Well the reason you should care, is because the link is only for those with a Member ID. The fact is anyone can click on the link and go to the special site, though you have to have the id to go further on. The problem is that those with a valid claim may not be able to get their badge because the system has a problem of being overloaded. And from past experience, that is no fun way to spend your morning.
One such site, Collider.com actually took their story down, because as you can imagine some people were probably up in arms. The problem was not the story but the actual link itself.
For me, there is nothing wrong with reporting that people with a member ID will have a second chance, and people should if only to remind folks who have an id to check their emails. What is wrong is posting the link.
Some things to look out for when you try for the resale of the badges:
Keep in mind that there is a very limited number of 4 day passes. You will have a better chance at purchasing single day passes.
The link is the only way to get to the special site, as you will not be able to go directly to comic con’s site like on March 3rd.
And one important fact. You will have one more chance to purchase badges after May 15th since it is the last date to refund the badges back.
So get ready for another fun-filled morning to try and purchase your comic con badges. If you received your email then you know the date and time. Good luck and god speed my fellow nerds.
