Does anyone know what the badge(s) will look like for CIV?
I HAVE MY BADGE AS WELL! I even put on that I want to volenteer so we will see what happens. It should be awesome. I have my plane tickets and hotel room already as well. It is all coming together! YAY
Nope, not yet. I wouldn't expect pics (if any) to be released until right before they ship the badges out to us.
Got mine too! even though I don't plan to be there all four days (only planned to be there Sat & Sun) I still bought the 4 day badge. I may have time to go look at some stuff on Friday night (I plan to arrive Friday afternoon), and it's only 30 dollars more than the price of separate Sat and Sun badges.
Anyone know when the badges ship?
I'm still anxiously waiting to see if I get my press credentials approved. Gen Con said we'd know by April 20th. I hope it is sooner than that.
Heh, I got my C III badges two days before the convention.
Ditto. Have they acknowledged your application at all, or are you in limbo? I faxed mine in, but have not heard anything.
I want my badge too...I am gonna go whine now!!!
According to the email I got after I purchased my pass:
"If you selected to have your items shipped to you, shipping will start
in mid-April, 2007."
I faxed mine in too and I did get a reply from gen con saying they had recieved it and then I got an e-mail from a third party company who seems to have been contracted out by gen con to handle the press arrangements. All they've told me so far is that they have them on file. If you have not recieved an e-mail and you filed for credentials over 2 weeks ago, call gen con or e-mail Adrian Swartout and ask what is going on.
Cool, thanks for the info. I'll check tomorrow. It's been 1 week so far, I think.
no need to check with them yet. Just be patient for a couple weeks. It took about 2 or so weeks before I got a letter saying they had recieved mine.
I just got the email saying that they had received my application and that they would be reviewing it. No word on if it's accepted yet, but this is a start...
Me and my wife are attending STAR WARS CELEBRATION IV including all five dates! (I've been a member of the official fan club for many years. I purchase my wife a membership to the official fan club for the celebrations so she can attend things that I can and when I can.)
It looked like attending wouldn't be doable due to we are wanting to buy a house and land with a lot more room for my STAR WARS collection and with a lot more room for my wife's horse and future horses and my wife really, really wanting it to happen this year and my wife giving me my way concerning my interest in STAR WARS and my STAR WARS collection (she's the best ) far more than she wants things her way and me not wanting her to be disappointed by having to wait even longer.
But things have worked out that we will be able to have the house and land we want around August/September/October of 2008 (later than we want, but we'll take it). Absolutely awesome!
We live in Indiana, around 17-22 minutes south of where the last two celebrations were held and attended every date of STAR WARS CELEBRATION II and every date of STAR WARS CELEBRATION III. STAR WARS CELEBRATION I wasn't doable due to us having had a new house built near that time. For STAR WARS CELEBRATION II and STAR WARS CELEBRATION III we were able to attend every date regardless of where they were held and would have attended every date regardless of where they were held.
STAR WARS CELEBRATION IV is getting closer!
I called the folks who are handling it Friday, got a response back today. No confirmations have been sent out yet but they are expecting to do so in the next couple of weeks. I really, really hope I'm approved cause if not, I have no passes and will have to deal with trying to get 4 day badges when we get there.
I'm going to have the same issue if denied. Not real thrilled at how they're handling that part of it. Maybe we can convince them to let us puchase a pass through them & get it shipped before the con if we're denied. But let's hope that it doesn't have to go that way....
Yep, I don't know what they'd be willing to do. From what I understand, if you didn't order by March 30th, you don't get friends and family coupons either.
Hmm I need to check out.
Where did you see that?
This was listed ("if you selected to have your items shipped to you, shipping will start in mid-April 2007") below your check out page when you purchased your badge, etc. If you printed out the receipt it is listed below your subtotal, etc.
Hmmm, just a thought: shouldn't the name of this thread be "I ordered my badge"?
Nah, it's OK. In a couple of weeks the title will be correct .
Thanks. I went back to my archives e-mail.
Middle of April.
