Your Registration Code Has Great Practical Value During Comic-Con 2017 Open Registration!

Comic-Con International Registration Update
To participate in Comic-Con 2017 Open Registration, you must have your own personal registration code to access the Expo Logic waiting room. Registration codes help keep out members who are not eligible for the sale and block nettling bots that aim to crash the system. 
If you are eligible to participate in Open Registration, your personal registration code will be sent to you via email at least 48 hours prior to the sale. You will also be able to access your personal registration code and link to the waiting room by logging in to your Comic-Con Member ID account and selecting the “Registration Info” tab. Registration codes will be available in your Member ID account by April 6, 2017. 
Your personal registration code will only authorize one device and one browser to enter the waiting room. Do not share your registration code or attempt to enter it on multiple devices and browsers! Doing so will authorize the most recent device the registration code was entered on, and you will receive an "Unauthorized" message on your other device. Registration codes are good for one entry into the waiting room only. 
If you are accidentally removed from the Expo Logic waiting room or temporarily lose connectivity, Don’t Panic. As long as you entered the Expo Logic waiting room prior to 9:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT), simply return to the waiting room link and re-enter your registration code. Removal from the waiting room will not impact your chances of being randomly selected for a registration session. 
Avoid the back button, the refresh button, multiple browser tabs, and incognito mode to steer clear of technical issues. If you are a family with multiple eligible attendees using the same computer, use a different browser for each registration code. DO NOT use different tabs within the same browser OR confront the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal.
Make sure to only use either a laptop or desktop computer.  Comic-Con International cannot guarantee that mobile devices, including iPads and other tablets, will behave as expected.
It is important that you arrive on time! The Expo Logic waiting room will open for registration code authorization at 8:00 AM PDT on April 8, 2017. You must authorize your registration code for entry to the waiting room prior to 9:00 AM PDT. The waiting room will close for entry promptly at 9:00 AM PDT and if you did not enter your code in time, you will be shut out! Make sure you arrive at least 10 – 15 minutes prior to 9:00 AM PDT. This gives you about 42 minutes to contemplate the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything.
And finally, you’ll need a few things, aside from a towel, before Open Registration begins. Make sure you have your registration code, the link to the Expo Logic waiting room, your Member ID, the Member IDs/Last Names of those you plan to purchase for, and your Visa/MasterCard/American Express payment information. We do not accept PayPal, Altairian dollars, or Flanian Pobble Beads.
