Never have been to a GenCon before, but I wasn't sure if an event having no contact information, no room number, or nothing else at all to confirm the game might actually play would be a smart thing to sign up for.  Seems to me it'd be an 'empty' spot on my Wish List, taking up precious space for an event that might not happen at all...

Again though, just my opinion and admittedly with 0 experience with GenCon.

Events are not automatically posted, so while we can't guarantee that you will like the actual event or the GM at the table, if it's posted then it's legitimate.

In this case, the only problem with the event was that it was activated before we confirmed locations for all Wednesday stuff, so it will be turned on once that is done. Otherwise, it was a normal event.

ZED17117512 - Five Day Parking Pass through Gate 10

The title indicates the pass running from Wednesday, August 16 until Sunday, August 20, but the Start Date & Time field shows Thursday at 8:00AM and End Date & Time at Thursday 6:00PM.

I'm assuming they had to put something into those fields and maybe 10 hours was the longest duration possible, but wanted to make sure that the pass was good through Wednesday morning through Sunday.

The description mentions that it includes overnight parking.

As well as exit privileges and event shuttle service.

However, when potentially spending $70 on something it would be nice to have official word that I'm spending it on what I think I'm spending it on.

I suspect that outside of the education/library/vendor events on Wednesday no event is capable of having a start time on Wednesday and I would guess that the maximum duration for an event is 10 hours. But it would be nice, all the same, to know officially what I'm paying for and when I can drop off and pick up my vehicle rather than assuming.

Was the deletion of Gate Ten Parking (all except RV) a mistake or intentional?

BGM17121854

These four events all have "Cry Havoc" as the event name (and description) but "First Martians" as the system.

(Also, the latter two are both Sunday from 12-2.  Is one of them supposed to be Saturday?)

The Gate 10 parking were not deleted, they were pulled temporarily to clarify the listings with more specific time and location information.  I hope those will return to active status tomorrow.

Awesome, that was my question too. I have a parking pass in my wish list but I get a 404 error if I click on it. Good to know why and that it's temporary. :)

You're right; those events were coordinated by different individuals, and it appears to just have been an oversight; I'll pass it along to be reviewed, thanks. :)

Yes, 19 & One is trying to sort out some last-minute adjustments. I'll pull the other event down for now, too, to avoid any other confusion.
