    I still have not heard anything, but at this point, I cannot go. So the point is somewhat moot.

    Nothing in the mail yet. Why are you picking up your badge? Is it because you're overseas?

    According to GenCon, the CIV badges will be mailed out at the end of this month.

    I am not so fussed beings as I am across the street from the convention centre to pick my badge up but the reason why I asked is gencon clearly stated that if people did not recieve their badges before the 4th may to contact them, the 4th may is next friday o_O

    Nothing yet here either, I ordered my 4-dayer in January but I'll be patient until the 4th.

    You better believe on the 5th I'm emailing GenCon. :p

    Finally broke down and changed the title -- mainly because of this information that a Rebelscummer posted on the Rebelscum C-IV board:

    "Howdy everyone. I just wanted you to know that I got this official quote from Gen Con today regarding our 4-day badges..."your badge(s) and any applicable [info] will be shipped to the address indicated. Unfortunately we had a delay in receiving some of our materials and badges are expected to go out throughout the end of this week and the beginning of next week. I would expect to receive your badge no later than the end of the second week in May.""

    That's not such good news. I'll post if I find anything else out. But I guess we won't be receiving anything near soon [face_worried]. There may be some of you that end up having to go to Will Call. That will not be happy news, either. Sorry, wish I had more positive things to tell you.

    I changed my shipping address on the gencon site after I ordered my badge -- do you know which address they will ship to? I don't want my badge to come to me here at school after I've gone home for the summer ...

    I'm afraid I don't know -- you'll have to email them and ask them what address they have on file, I guess [face_worried].

    Sending folks in the US that paid in advance to will call would be a very bad call on Gen Con's part(Unless they opted for will call).

    They should be Fed Ex or UPS-ing the badges to the folks who ordered the 4-day in advance. They should then pass the cost of that onto their material supplier who caused the delay. Of course that might not help the folks coming from out of state. I'd hate to have to line up in will call in addition to all the other lines.

    I would be pretty PO'd of I had to wait in the Will Call line to pick up my CIV badge. I have the first Quick Path store time slot on Thursday, and the last thing I want to have happen is miss my time slot for the store because I am still waiting on the Will Call line.

    Gen Con better make sure they get their act together and get those badges mailed out in time. This is EXACTLY why I wish Gen Con had made the cut-off date March 1st to order the badges and have them shipped to you. That would have given them plenty of time to overcome any badge production or shipping delays (such as this one) and get the badges out to all the fans who ordered before the cut-off date. :mad:

    It's not like fans haven't had enough time to order their badge before March 1st - the badges have been available for over 5 months.

    This is exactly why GENCON IS A HORRIBLE CONVENTION PROMOTER!

    They already proved themselves with C3 that they don't know what they they are doing. I still can't figure out how they were allowed to promote C4 with the reputation they have.

    Wow, I'm one of the people that ordered these badges months in advance. It would really suck if I had to go on the Will Call line as well. I really hope I get these badges sometime before the convention.

    Preferably, in the next week or two. I was actually about to ask when we were getting our badges. I guess I now know.

    There's nothing wrong with the will call lines. I did it for C3 and had no problem what so ever. Got there and they found it right away. Badges were broken down by the first letter of your last name and it was fine. And this was the day before it opened.
