Technically we don't allow trades of this kind, thanks.

Not disputing, but what is the reason for that decision?
If a ticket for any game is good for any game, why isn't any ticket good for any player (provided the player has a valid badge)?
Say I'm planning on making a game, but suddenly have something come up twenty minutes before the game...food poisoning maybe. Why can't a friend of mine with a valid badge use the ticket? I mean, knowing I won't make it, my friend could use generics to go take my place. But why not let him use my ticket?
Just curious. In all my years, it's something I've never managed to do, even though I admit I didn't know it wasn't allowed. But I know many people have done it.
Ooh, and...does that mean that GMs are supposed to check names on tickets with badges, as opposed to just confirming that each player has a badge?
Sorry for the Q&A, just didn't know this. (Just reread...that sounds like a dispute, but I'm really just asking for the reason I assume is in place, and explaining why it seems to make sense. What am I missing?)
