Quoted from TaylorVA:
there weren't any people on the waitlist the week before Pinburgh. I had a friend sign up to play the week before. It was possible to view the waitlist prior and you could see no one was on it. The year before I had friends drive up from Alabama to stand by to get into Pinburgh to no avail but they did the trip just in case.
I think the person who told people there were no spots available and there were still people on the wait list was misinformed.
There were a few small issues I dealt with, these are NOT complaints!
I was given the wrong 4 day pass (a regular instead of VIP) When I tried to show my receipt for the VIP ticket the guy at the booth refused me and told me I wasn't on the VIP list, despite my electronic receipt. Found Elizabeth and she promptly helped me out. Problem solved.
VIP discounts.. Had to argue with the guy at the merchandise booth. He kept telling me without my "ticket" I got no discount, badge means nothing despite the VIP status. Then a lady told him there was no "ticket" but we had to ask for the discount. Then I was informed it was a ONE TIME USE. Wait, WHAT? No mention on any documentation or website that we would only get one use for a discount. This needs to be CLEAR in the future.
Drawings.. It would be nice to not require us to be present... or have the drawings in a meeting room when there are no seminars or other interfering events. Fact, there was simply too much to do and not enough time to enjoy it all.
I enjoyed myself more than I ever expected. This event far exceeded my expectations. I can't wait for Replay #2
