Hi, I have a few (maybe silly) questions:

1.) By 12:00pm noon Central Time, does that mean Illinois time?

2.) When we go to register a group of people, we just need the usernames that each person uses to login to their ACen account, right? Do we need their badge numbers too (or any other info, for that matter)?

3.) When we purchase tickets, do we login to our ACen account to do so, or do we go through the Rosemont Theatre website?


Thank you so much!

Just user name, the system asks you to type it in, so make surey ou have the correct spellings of the accounts.
3.) When we purchase tickets, do we login to our ACen account to do so, or do we go through the Rosemont Theatre website?
Log in to you ACen .org account, itll be through out event system :)

Thank you so much!

Will the concert tickets be mailed with our badges or do we have to pick them up at the convention?

Just to make sure I've got the time right: 12pm Central is 1PM EST, correct?

Concert tickets will have to be picked up at the convention. I am working with the theatre to see if we can use their box office for ticket distribution. I will post more information on that when it becomes available.

Regarding the time, since we are on Daylight Saving Time right now, 12pm Central (CDT or GMT-5) is 1pm EDT (GMT-4), to be absolutely clear about it.

Question: I just want to clarify something. What exactly do we need to purchase tickets for other people as a group?

What field is "ACen.org account name".

What exactly will be needed?
  • email address
  • login username on ACen.org
  • Badge Name
  • Badge #
  • real name on the billing address
  • real name on the shipping address

Thanks.

So in short, people that can only attend ACen for one day will be unable to purchase tickets for the Kalafina concert? Will there be a Will Call for single-day attendees to have the opportunity to purchase tickets for the concert as well?

I'm not a staff member, but I know the answer to this question:

Assuming that "You must have an ACen badge on your ACen.org account (not forums account) to purchase a concert ticket." means you need to have a badge, and since you can ONLY purchase badges for all three days online(which is something they need to work on), the answer to your question is no, I believe.

You will(or should be) logged into your account on the website. Next you click the link to buy tickets. You will select the section you are looking to get tickets in(there is a map for reference) and the amount of tickets you are looking to get in said section. When you select the amount of people you are looking for boxes appear for you to place their acen.org username in. It verifies when you click submit if they have a badge or not (so make sure they do). Then it takes you to the payment page, and then your done. Hope that was what you were looking for :thumbup:

My question was going to be whether there was a limit as to how many people constitutes as a "group", but this answered it just fine. Thank you!

So it's their ACen.org username they use to log in to ACen.org to register/buy their badge?

From what I can see, your only question was: why do the Ticket sales start Thursday at noon while you are in school?
The simple answer is that that is when the A-Cen team decided to have it.
It is possible that that is the earliest date and they want to give as many people as possible time to buy in advance (approx. 1 month before the con)
It's possible that they want to start the system at a non-peak time in case there are any errors, so that the team has time to fix them before everyone and their dog jumps on after school/work to buy tickets.
We won't know.
And I believe - as a frequent forum user and not staff at all - that your question was perceived as rhetorical and therefore not answered.
I am sure the staff did not mean to make you feel slighted or ignored.

If you have other questions and would like to assure that you receive an answer, many of the staff do respond to Personal Messages in a quick and timely manner. But as they are busy, if the question is not urgent, I am sure they do prefer that the questions be asked in the Thread/forum where other members can also help.

Hope this helps.

Seriously getting pissed. I now have to skip class if I want to get a ticket, assuming they go up sometime within the next couple hours. I wouldn't get my hopes up.

ACen announced that they would be going on sale at noon. That's 1pm Indiana time. I'm not sure about other time zones. Unless they are behind loading up the system to sell tickets, everything should be up by now. Or, that's the idea. *headdesk*

I got my tickets already but I'm really worried that something went wrong...such as overbooking each section. I would be really surprised if that 103 section didn't sell out in a matter of minutes, I mean it's the front and center section and there is only...I dunno, 50-60 seats in that section? With the overwhelming traffic that took down the site, I would think that it would have sold out really fast. The fact that the site has been taken down and only displays that nice "error page"...only makes me worry more.

I really hope I am wrong and worrying for nothing. That hour really stressed me out. Sorry if I am so negative.
