I saw the Facebook notice that reg was going to open 1 Sep. Yet, I never received a Twitter message. Nor does the homepage for ACen say anything. Do you not send out inf and update the main page at the same time?

Has the panel submissions for 2014 opened as well? The link in the sidebar on the main page appears to be active.

Hi randy r,

The homepage is now updated to show that registration is open (thought I had it set to update that as well...). Thank you for pointing that out to me! As for the Twitter notifications, there were 2 that went out about registration: one on August 27th (the same day that it was posted on the Anime Central page, as well as the Anime Central and ACen groups) and one on September 1st when registration was open.

I never received either of those tweets. Checked Twitter, and it shows I'm still following. So, who knows.

The link below is where you register. - You can also find it on ACen.org under "Register" and then "sign up/log in". If you did it last year then the system will already have your info in it.

Hi SomeDude,

If you already have an account in our registration system, the easiest way to purchase your membership badge is to log in to your account and click on "Purchase Badge" under the "Register" menu on the left-hand side of the screen.

The link that KungPowKirby linked to is actually the link to log in to your account, but you will need to click on "Purchase Badge" (under "Register" on the left-hand side of the screen) in order to actually purchase the membership badge.

A few issues with registration besides having to hunt around for the 'Purchase Badge' button and general odd layout. Hasn't been improved since last year.

Signing up multiple people under one ticket (making a group) is a cumbersome process involving logging in, creating a group, logging out, creating a new account, joining the group, logging out, making a new account, joining the group, logging out, ad nauseum. Very parent un-friendly.

My biggest concern is the unencrypted credit card payment box. It *might* get encrypted somewhere down the line, but asking people to send unencrypted credit/debit card information through the internet where any sniffer between them and ACen's servers are is just a BAD idea. Nevermind what a bot or datalogger snuck onto those servers could do with joyously accessible info like that. I don't know if ACen thinks it is saving money this way or what, but as soon as a Target store happens to them, they are going to be paying out money to consumers and credit monitoring agencies BIG TIME.

ACen really needs to either find or hire a good website commerce person/agency and clean up their stuff to make it both MUCH more secure and parent proof registration portal.
