ok for number one yes we will have signs.

2. it's designed to make attendee line time as short as possible and the time spent at the booth getting your badge super short.

3. This would be a huge crowding disaster. The lines are the easiest way to do this and the most efficient. You cannot sit in the reg hall due to fire code, since we have 12 pay stations, plus groups payment and SN payment it would be impossible to tell where people belong. And there's more. It just wouldn't work.

Excellent.

I really hope this will work out. Last year's 6 hour wait in-line was a big downer way to start Acen for me (and a lot of acen goers).

Well, it's a thought that I haven't heard others suggest. Like I said, last year was a year of *twin waterfalls* for me for registration. And only $10 "refunded" to make up for the lost day. Hopefully the changes made will improve this part of the convention.

Hi, I have a registration/panel question. We are doing a panel on Saturday, but it looks like we need service to con badges for two more people. Who do we contact? I emailed the panel/programming director, but haven't heard back yet. Is there another way we are supposed to do this?

you need to contact panel programming. And reg would like to stress these are not service to con badges they are panelist badges. service to con is completely different.

Question, Uh...I am only going for a Saturday pass but I have a register account already from last year. Will I need to fill out the paper form? For a photo id, is a state id okay? And what else will I need to bring?

According to this post: http://www.acen.org/forums/index.php?s=&am...st&p=678698
you should not need to fill out the paper form and yes a state ID is an acceptable method. All the info is in the post I linked so feel free to read it to confirm what you need, and it has the hours reg is open also.

Cool, Uh I wonder how this will go when I get to registration and be like "I'm already in your system" 0.0;; Also another question my friend paid for her badge already (in cash in guessing), how would she prove that she paid and can get her badge? Would she show them a print out of the registration form thingy online that says "badge:paid"?

If she has paid and is picking up her badge at con she would follow the Will-call section of that post also.

Question - for a one day, at-con pass, is Visa accepted, or is at-con registration cash only? I had trouble understanding the 1st post...

Thanks!

First off, thanks for having a good plan for registration this year; looks like it should go smoothly...

Very quick question: my wife is pregnant (8 months) and should not be standing for a long period of time. Will she need to bring proof of her condition (other than the obvious physical proof :) ) for using the special needs line? Also, will our whole group (4 family members + 1 friend) be able to use the special needs line? Thanks...

As far as proof, that is one condition we don't need a doctor's note for ;) As far as companions go, the rule is up to three companions but I will double check with my DH on that.

As KnitChick said, we do allow people with special needs to be accompanied by a small number of companions in any priority entry situations. But since you won't be occupying an unfairly large amount of any seating space or anything, we can allow slightly larger groups such as yours in through the express line.

We have a Help Desk right at the entrance to Registration, stop there first and we can get you right in.

I've noticed a discrepancy on the times registration opens and closes on certain days.

On the first post here, it says the following:

Friday - 7am-10pm
Saturday - 7am-6:30pm
Sunday - 8am-4pm


Yet on the ACen website under the convention hours, there are different times listed (For Friday/Saturday opening and Saturday closing):

Friday - 8AMó10PM
Saturday - 8AMó6PM
Sunday - 8AMó4PM


I'd just like to get some clarification, especially for when registration opens Saturday morning, as that's when I'll be up there.

Thanks in advance!

Alright. My question! D:

So on Thursday night, it says it is open to all forms of registration. I registered, but I did not prepay.
Does this mean that I can go Thursday night and not only pay, but receive my badge right then and there without having to wait in any lines on Friday? Or are there more special circumstances?

I'm having trouble. And I guess I didn't know where to post it, but since it's talking about registrations.
I'm trying to log into my account, so I can get my confirmation number but every time I click on Register now, it says " Not found " AH! Help?!

Most, if not all, of reg staff are at con already so they're not going to be responding on the forums. Email them for a response to your problem.

From my understanding, that portion of the website is closed since it is so close to con. You don't need your registration number to pick up your badge and what not. Just photo ID.

Read the first post in this thread that Bloo09 made. It explains all of this in detail.

Also, when you first registered for your badge, you were sent an email with your badge number on it. I would start searching your emails if you are very concerned about it.
