I got the super secret link a couple days ago, got up early (D&D went past 1 AM last night), spend a half hour trying to log in, and 20 minutes ago found myself 39,959th in line. :shock:

Good news is now I'm only 31,929th in line! :roll:

I think my SDCC going days are over.

Four day badges and Saturday badges are now gone. :evil:

Maybe I'll be able to string together a Friday and Sunday and go to the beach inbetween. :roll:

Friday and Saturday are now gone. :(

Maybe I can snag Thursday and Sunday, and go to the beach and Disneyland inbetween.

Yeah, that's the ticket!

:cry:

I broke 20,000!

YAY!!!!!


Although I'll probably be disappointed, at least it's better than last year. They need to handle the initial rush better (the first 30 minutes was time out, refresh, time out, refresh, etc.), but once I got in the waiting room, at least I could see I was making progress.

I just wanna see if I can break ten thousand before it's all she wrote.

And it's done. All sold out.

And I didn't even break 10K.

Shoulda just slept through it.

It took exactly one hour, 20 minutes, and 29 seconds for SDCC 2012 to completely sell out.

SIGH.

I wonder how many badges I'll see on eBay today.

I started in the waiting room at around 14000.

Somehow that briefly went up to 16000, then started going back down at a rate of about 1000 places every refresh.

Took an hour all-told to get to the order page, and when I did, both 4-day passes were gone.

Once again, I invite SDCC to bite me, and assuming it's not against any rules, would like to offer cash money to anyone willing to pick up exclusives for me.

Hey guys new to the forum.. now that's out of the way :)

I was one of the lucky souls to make it through registration last year and I was able to pre reg for my badges this year at the Con. I did however click the link just to check out the system this year and it was alot better. One thing people were making the mistake of was refreshing their page. If you read the PDF on their site they said that refreshing your browser would effectively move you to the back of the line.

Anyways sorry for those who won't be able to make it. I will ty to stay active on this forum and keep you guys updated come July.

WOW.

I can pretty much guarantee that's what happened to me.
