Thank you to every staff member who has posted on this thread. Either with news in a good way or being a little cross with us, cause I understand.

And big thank you to djfluffkins! I hope it's up by then, but if it isn't, I will not blame you nor anyone else. Like you said- crap happens, we all got to learn how to deal.




If anyone can tell, I am burnt out of the drama omgz. XD

Happy Birfday to me.:D

I've got to agree with khenemetset & GDD on this one. All we've heard thusfar is "be patient" and a repeat of things we were told a few months back.

Speaking on the behalf of my DH(I've talked to him on IRC): please stop getting your panties in a knot, everyone.


I don't care whose words those are, but somebody needs to learn a bit more about CS & PR.

djfluffkins said:

Now, from what I heard pre-reg and the website is slated to be up by next week this time.


Thank you.

djfluffkins said:

It has been out of his control because prereg is waiting on the website which is getting overhauled.  


Normally, I'd say it sounds like a scapegoat, but in this sense it does make perfect sense.

As for the website, well - that's a conversation for another thread.

Thanks for the information djfluffkins. All even the most spazzy of us wanted was some current information from someone on staff not some rumor started by someone who has no idea what's going on. Not that I saw anything that I would call stupid behavior here. Just people voicing concerns about lack of information and such. Sorry if I came off as sounding pissy or offended anyone on staff in any way. At least we can all relax now and wait for site to come up hopefully with all the information we've been waiting for. I'll crawl back into my corner of silence now and wait for the information.

ok, I just need to know this...I've asked for my check "sent in error" (the whole Reactor mixup thingie) to be destroyed. Will I know, proir to or when registration opens ,that this has been done? Or will I just pre-register...and find out, down the road, that the check was still viable? And that I've double paid? I so hate sounding like a whiney child, but...as we all have admitted...lack of communication is just leading to all sorts of wild speculations. Any solid info on this?

djfluffkins, I appreciate the effort you went to reply to us with information, and calmly. I only wish I had learned this information ahead of time.

I apologize to those I'm responding late to. Ever since President Ford's death, I have been running 12 hour work days and have not had time to come check this site for information.

I have to agree with dchan on the "panties in a bunch" comment. Especially if that was a direct quote from the registration DH, I'm feel a lot less inclined to spend my money at ACEN. I don't believe there was any "OMG KILL THE DH" comments in the last few pages... nothing said was overly harsh. The con-goers (who, by the way, expect to spend money at this con) were anxious that their concerns had not been dealt with in a decently long length of time. Speaking to attendees like that is certainly bound to keep at least some people from frequenting a convention. I think it's almost laughable that a few pages ago, people were speaking of poor management... only to supposedly have that management come back with such a statement.
Perhaps it's my absolute tired state, but that comment was really offensive to me. Not the comment itself, but due to who it was coming from.

DJfluffkins has shown that some staff can be reasonable and helpful without being rude.
So I will address my question to a staff member who seems to actually care about the con-goers: Have you heard whether or not we will be paying the higher tier rate that usually comes around this time in January? While it seems unfair to some, it seems only logical to me that the normal tiers would still be enforced, as the con DOES need to make SOME profit. Especially if several new systems are in place. Sending badges out alone is going to be an extra amount, isn't it?

Dchan and psycho need to learn about a little thing called sarcasm. That statement wasn't said by my DH, but I think the think the general meaning was there. Many people in this thread have been calling him irresponsible. Just calm down though.. don't need to turn this thread into anymore of a flame pit. I would have given some actual useful info, but I suppose its not in my place to be giving any without permission, so I didn't.

On one hand, I appreciate you not passing along information when it's not your place... no offense, but it would just cause more rumors.

On the other hand, with a topic this red-hot, what part of you thought it would be brilliant to tell people who were already upset that your DH was making rude comments? Sarcasm doesn't come across well on the internet. I recommend putting and before and after statements, so as to be sure.
On the internet, nobody can hear your tone of voice.

I hope I didn't come off offensive as before. ^^ I'm not worried about it, just excited. XP I did not mean to if I did.

But just a question, so I know. Will the link for pre reg be posted here, or on the site. (I think it was the site last year, but I'm just making certain. XP I've been wrong before.) Last year I did sign up to be notified when pre-reg does roll around.

Also, is it true, there are going to be special badges for the 10th anniversary of ACEN? *crosses fingers* ^^ Either way, I just can't wait.

>< Ah... one more question before I forget... is there going to be a limited number of the special anniversary badges? XP I want to be sure I get one.

And thank you to all the staff members. ^^ I know you are working hard.

As I refuse to continue with the possibility of any childish bantering on this official reg thread, I sent you a PM.

Yes. They're an extra $5 per badge.

Yup. Although I don't believe the exact number has been disclosed.

Here's an odd question, I preregistered at last years ACen but I didn't use a check (cash) and I don't have any receipts from last May. Did the rates change? Will I have to pay again? I'm really confused.

Sweetplushiecak:

Don't quote me on this, but I am assuming that you filled out a form of some sort, or your name was taken, am I correct? If the same system is being used this year that was used last year, then I'm also going to assume that your name will be in the system for already paying and all we'll need to do is print out your badge. If you were wanting a special badge, I suggest you ask Jayson about that when he gets back online (frenziedfury). You won't have to repay I wouldn't think, maybe just pay the difference if there is one (might just be the five extra dollars for the badge). By preregging, you got a really sweet discounted rate for regging a year early at last years con, so you won't have to worry about paying again for the later dated rate. Hope this makes sense, and I hope this helps! ^_^

FrenziedFury is the forum ID for the Registration DH.  But, they have not been online since October.  I don't know whats goin on, but if he hasn't been online since October, that means all this talking here is falling on deaf ears since they aren't looking to see whats going on.

Now, from what I heard pre-reg and the website is slated to be up by next week this time. You can quote me on that because I'll quote other people if they have something to say about it. Please be patient, I will talk with the reg dh about if we can come up with a way to make this up to you guys.


That was on Wednesday.

I'd like to know what picture will be needed for the special badges? Or is that meaning the image of the badge itself.

Le Sigh.

-__-"

Well this is frustruating. I was looking into this thread with hope to get some valueable information.


instead I came across everyone's complaints. (there is a gripe section elsewhere? right? >[ )

Another thing that is a bit boiling is that the WEBSITE hasn't been updated. AT ALL.

We all understand that constaffers have lives, but.....at the same time they have a responsibility as people who run the convention to give us SOME info.

Right?


to Carnage_Black2:

If you mean when we pick up badges, you need a picture ID or (if you are without an ID) you need someone to verify who you are.


I dunno what else you would need a picture for other wise. ^_^"""

I'm talking about the image of tyhe badge, what it looks like. One comment I found said about getting pictures for the badge. That's what I meant. I'm a Gofer vet, so I know the requirements of badge pick-up. I'm talking about the AA badge.

I know that people asking over and over to get the website and pre-registration online won't necessarily make it happen any faster, but the pre-reg for Anime Expo - which is over a month and a half LATER than ACEN - has already gone past its first discount tier. Their website isn't exactly information rich, but at least it exists. (And, yes, I do put ACEN in the same league with AX, in case you were wondering.)

I'm hoping that the whole "10th anniversary" keeping stuff secret for a nice surprise thing will pay off soon. It looks like there are a bunch of nervous people around here on the forums, and not alot of solid info from people in charge of things.

I hope everything and everyone is okay.
