how about some happy news for these here forums....my badge just arrived. It's starting to feel a little more real :)
The badges look fantastic, too, I have to say. Well, O.K., at least the top parts that people are actually showing online do :)
Honestly, got it and was like *shrug*. In hindsight, I should have just sat it out this year. Not for fear of what is going on or anger of what is being done, but just seems like too much angst/drama everywhere you turn which massively tempers my looking forward to Gencon this year.
Believe me, I completely understand where you're coming from and I know it's easier said than done, but it would be a shame if a small but loud group of people who'll likely end up not attending anyway spoiled the convention for you. I sincerely hope that doesn't happen.
Mine just arrived, too!
I bet the will call line will be super short this year..
Yes there were so many fewer event choices to chose from
Yes 80% of my core group of 40+ out of town friends will not be there
Yes the after hours suite my friends in the hotel will be severely limited...
But this is still going to be the best [insert your favorite expletive here] Gen Con EVER!
Gen Con is what you make it. It's all about the attitude in your head going in.
My badge-n-tix are still in the "label created" stage. Just out of curiosity (since it has been a really long time since I have had mine mailed to me), what happens if it doesn't ship in time, or doesn't arrive in time? I guess you just go to Will Call and let them know and they take care of it there?
A tracking number will show up in packets, if it already hasn't done so. You are also required to sign for it when it arrives. I say give it 2 weeks then reach out to them
ok silly question without actually telling me your ID number on your badge is it a huge number or a smaller number?
I'm just asking because maybe they're sending them out in numeric order. I have a VERY VERY LOW ID Number
I also have noticed that even if I order more than one badge at the same time for my household, when the badges arrive the numbers are not sequential.
Of course, if hahnarama's last name starts with a letter after H, my hypothesis is disproved, as H got their badge today.
In past years, my friend whose first name starts with a letter far after mine in the alphabet, and has a larger Gen Con ID has gotten his packet first. It might have to do with the event tickets and the order they're printed and organized, and have little or nothing to do with name or ID.
I still think its because of my Double 0 number :)
