Ya, work schedules ruin everything...lol

@ayaasan: Definitely can do something at Comikaze. Just waiting for the schedule to be put up, then we can decide what time will work if there's panels/events/etc.

I'll just wait until the next wig sale~ I don't know what to get for Wasp anyway.

@Jono: You could always park at one of the trolley stations and trolley to Seaport. It's only $5 for the all day pass.

@Tulipe: Ya, but I'm driving some people so it'll probably be ok if they chip in for parking.
I'm guessing Seaport will be crowded especially if we get there at noon? I haven't been there in a long time even though I pass by every now and then.

Oh, in that case parking might actually be cheaper. xD
Well, Seaport can get pretty crowded on it's own, it might be a little worse since it's going to be on Saturday and at the high point of visitors. You might get really lucky and find a space, usually towards the back they are usually pretty open.

Yeah it's best to ask them to chip in for parking :P

Well I have two choices: get the trolley to take me there to arrive on time/earlier or get a ride from mum who works at the Hyatt but I'll be getting there like at around 1:15ish if I do

@Link: I forget, where do you live? Was it Chula Vista? If yes, there's couple people taking the trolley from there so maybe come with them. Or save yourself the ticket and go with your mom =)

@Everyone who was at Comic Con: Don't forget that pre-reg is tomorrow at 8am!

I live fairly close to downtown, if I go with my mom I'm still gonna end up having to buying a ticket since I'm going to have to take the trolley back home xD

Yeah I saw that on Facebook xD

I don't understand the need to broadcast the Comic-con stuff. x-x I mean I understand YOU telling us as a friendly reminder, but when people make full boards and are like "HEY GUYS THEY'RE OPENING PRE-REG." So now the world knows instead of just a few people... That totally goes against the "Keep it secret so you have a better chance of getting tickets" thing. All last year as soon as the e-mails went out there was the "Don't tell other people, keep it to yourself" and then there would be at least five boards or twenty FB messages telling the world about it. And of course, the e-mail went to everyone who attended this year so no one else can do it, but when it comes time for that to go public EVERYONE has to talk about it

Sorry, just an angry rant about things I see so often. Hopefully though the popularity goes down a little since Twilight won't be there next year. Good luck in getting your tickets guys. o:

Again, nothing about what you shared... Just that it reminded me of something else and I had to go off on a tangent. xD

I totally understand and yeah it should be kept on the down low. Obviously I'm sharing it with friends that I know attended, but in no way, shape, or form would I broadcast it on FB and the twitterverse.

This year I don't think it will be as bad because
1. you can't buy for anyone who didn't attend so almost everyone is just buying just one for themselves. Hopefully this means quick purchases to clear the queue.
2. Twilight Only fans may not be returning.
3. The whole MemberID thing is already up and running so it's not a whole new system people are unfamiliar with.

What I don't like is that its basically a lottery on how well your internet connection can reach the ticketing server. I much prefered the on-site where I knew if I got there early enough, I would get a ticket. Neither way is fair, but I prefer the method where I can influence my chances.


EDIT: OVER 1000 Replies!!! OMG >.>

Wow! Over 1000 replies and it's mostly just us! xD Still.

I'm just hoping that since I keep getting the e-mails about things that I'm still on staff and that I don't have to worry about tickets. And hopefully, if they didn't want me back I would know already. xD But I think I've made a little niche for myself and people are getting used to me. Plus I got a few "See you next years". If not well, that just sucks~

I'd hope to actually get into a panel next year, since Thor 2 and Captain America 2 will be released or about to be. And Iron man 3. Whee~

I've never liked the way they've done tickets. Except when it was really really easy to just walk in and bye tickets. I wish it was back to then, when I didn't have to fight people to get tickets, or worry about having to steal other people's. And I could walk around without worrying about getting trampled or smooshed between a crowd. I was glad they didn't have on site, just because people kept coming to us to ask about things and would annoy the hell out of us.

I also hope I make it next year because I'll have graduated! And I'll need to get a job- so hopefully said job will let me out~

Yeah, my supervisor always comments on how there was a time when he could just walk in and buy a ticket. Those days are long gone...
I got hired at UCSD in July so I thought I would have to skip Thurs/Fri cause there's a 6month probation period for newly hired employees, but since my supervisor and about 5 other people goto Comic Con, they allowed me to take the time off and make it up later.
Hopefully you find a job at a reasonable employer so you can go. What are you majoring in? Would you stay in Hawaii or come back to San Diego or elsewhere?

It was the best when I could do that! I didn't have to worry about getting there super early to beat the crowds. I could get my ticket, take the trolley OR get a ride because it wasn't busy then and it was possible to drive a car. I wish we could get back to that time. D:

Yeah, people here tend to be pretty lenient when it comes to CC. I know some of my friends got the time off because they said that's where they were going. xD It was pretty cool. I'm an Anthropology major, but my dream job is to work in a museum... So I'm wondering on what I can do with that. I'd like to come back to San Diego, that's my main goal I haven't decided on graduate school or not. o:
