    What about Hyperspace members? Was there a place to check if you are a member? All I see is the 4 day pass.

    I'd assume that if you're NOT a Hyperspace member and you got a 4 day pass, you'd best become one ASAP before somebody notices.

    I'm a member, but I didn't see any place to actually check before purchasing, saying that I was a Hyperspace member. I went ahead and purchased the 4 day ticket anyway, but now I'm kinda nervous.

    BA-DA BING BABY!!!! Got my two 4-Day badges for my wife and I. It was quick and painless.

    As per the instructions, all Fan Club members will receive their Hyperspace lanyards once the badges are shipped. Gen Con will verify that your membership status is active and then ship the lanyards out accordingly.

    YEAH BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!! [face_dancing] [face_dancing] [face_dancing]

    Why must you register someone to get an extra badge, yet they give you the option of buying more then one? That confused me.

    I'm all done. Expect to see me and the Pink Jedi Jedi in May. I was a little worried about the fan clu thingy too. If you bought a 4 days badge, they will check to see if you are a hyperspace member before sending you your badges and if you are, voila. You will get the friends adn family coupons and the SPECIAL lanyard.

    Now let's all go get a drink and celebrate. :)

    If you are worried that they may overlook your membership you can also go into your GenCon profile and select the box that says yes to the question Are you a Star Wars Fan Club Member?

    I would have gone insane during the wait if it weren't for all of you!=D= I went to the lunch room after I got the badges and nobody in there cared. The adrinaline is still pumping and they want to talk about some pain in the tush student. Hello... there are more important things going on here!!!

    "What about Hyperspace members? Was there a place to check if you are a member? All I see is the 4 day pass."


    You should go into your account and check "Yes" for the question, "Are you a Star Wars Fan Club Member?" I'm not so sure Gen Con checks every person to see if someone is a Fan Club member for everyone who's registered. I believe if it says "NO" in your Gen Con account, they may look at that and consider you not a Fan Club Member. So go in and check it, and send an e-mail to them asking if there is anything you need to do to make sure you get all the Fan Club member stuff with your badge, since you alread bought the badges before checking "yes" to the fan club member question in your profile.

    You don't have to worry, the badges are not scheduled to be shipped until mid-April. At that time, Gen Con will verify/confirm if each person who orderd a badge is a Star Wars FC mamber. If you are a member, then they will simply add the lanyard and green passes to your packet. If not, you will just get the admission badge.

    It makes no sense for Gen Con to check member status now, as people will be joining the FC well after they have already bought their badges. Once pre-registering has ended, then they will check for FC membership status before mailing out the badge orders.
