Just curious has anyone else received a shipping notification or their badge yet?
Mine is scheduled to arrive tomorrow, hoping I will be here to sign for it when it arrives
You can click on your tracking # and go to the USPS website and set up notifications for your packet.
I'm assuming they are still processing shipping packets out, as I haven't seen any notification on the "My Packets" page. I went with getting my badge shipped this year, as I can only attend one day, Saturday.
They are going in alphabetical order by last name and last report they were on the “M”s.
Keep checking this post for updates:
You're not going to get a notification. You have to sign up for an account on USPS, it's free. I've had mine for years and it has gotten better with the info it provides. The package will be coming from EASYPOST/PARCEL PARTNERS out of Seattle
Hope this helps
You don't need an account with USPS. Just click on the tracking number on your My Packets page. This will take you to the USPS site, and you can sign up for email alerts there. You will get a ton of emails.. everytime the packet is scanned, it seems they send one.
Uh oh. Post office sent my package out for delivery and now its saying it was return to the post office for address verification. I'm curious as to what this means. Never had this happen and I have it sent every year with never an issue before.
If its anything like what happened to me a few years back, Gen Con marked it as "Requires Signature".
If no one was there to sign it, they bring it back to the post office until someone does come to pick it up and sign.
A bit of a hassle, but to be fair I wouldn't want my non-replaceable badge and tickets worth several hundred dollars just sitting on my doorstep for a day.
Sounds like they might have done a bad job of printing the addresses.
Oh well. I'll get it resolved. Not my first rodeo with the post office. First time ever with an issue getting the package from Gen Con and its always been the same address since I have been coming for 8 years now.
Monday, the mail carrier came with my Gen Con packet to sign for, but he was a substitute carrier they'd pulled in from another town and he couldn't figure out how to work the scanner for me to sign it, so he gave me the missed delivery slip to pick up the envelope at the post office.
No big deal, I live literally a block away, so I wait and go down just before closing in case the carrier had already made it back (we're one of the last houses on the route.) He hadn't, so I told the guy working I'd be back to pick it up tomorrow.
I go down Tuesday morning, and the woman working can't find it in the office. It hasn't been scanned as being out for delivery again. She calls the person that sorted the mail for the carriers, and she doesn't specifically remember sending it out, and the carrier for my route has a lot of mail and doesn't know if he has it. She says it's "probably" out for redelivery and takes my phone number.
I get a call later that the mail carrier does have it, so I wait for the mail to be delivered. It's our regular carrier this time, and he does have the packet, but when he goes to scan it so I can sign, he finds out his scanner has been password locked, and he doesn't have a password for it.
I was just about to tell him to make sure when he gets back to the post office to tell the person working to NOT F*****G SEND IT OUT AGAIN when he just hands it to me anyway. Chaotic Good.
And just dropped off 10:30 6/28.
Oh well, no Golden Ticket.....
Gee, I feel for you guys.
Mine arrived without any problems.
Though I did have to be at home that day till it arrived. (Around eleven that morning.)
Though maybe if I return to Gencon in a later year I will just do the will call on Wednesday.
Mines all good. It was waiting for me at the post office to pick up as always. It was just weird seeing the status online saying address verification needed and the carrier not leaving a hanger on the door like they always do. False alarm for me. Not sure how they got in and took my golden ticket though without unsealing it.......
Mine is waiting at the post office, I work Saturdays so I wasn't home and they left me a note telling me I could pick it up at the post office on 6/31 :). I hope they will let me get it on 7/1 :P.
Chaotic Good would be snatching it from his hand and make him fix his scanner there but promise to give it back if he couldn’t.
Chaotic Neutral would be snatching it and slamming the door in his face.
Chaotic Evil would be shooting the guy and taking it.
So it could have been worse...
This seems like a lot of effort. What do you guys have against the will call line? Getting in on Thursday?
