I will go ahead and quote Trilobyte on this one...

I think I need to stay off the tickets discussion board at least until tomorrow, because I'm becoming dangerously obsessed with when the first ticket confirmations will go out haha!! :D

No, nobody has their ticket yet. Aside from tickets not being fulfilled until June, the drawing has not yet begun.

When the drawing starts, I'll post an official 'awarded tickets' thread.

Great, one more thing for people to check after they hit 'refresh'.. Just kidding. Great idea Trilo. I believe you did that after the presale as well, and I got my confirmation email an hour or so after.

No need for anybody to get refresh-happy just yet, it took a couple days to go through everything for the pre-sale, and this is a much bigger registration pool.

More than 11 times as large...

edited to add: Whoops maybe not. If it's number of registrations I'll never know. and then there's the number of dropped. Sometimes that little thing in my head that likes to do this sort of math, looks at the wrong variables...

I read this from your post in this thread:

"When the drawing starts, I'll post an official 'awarded tickets' thread."

Granted, I should have taken it with a grain of salt.

Sorry to have caused any confusion or been a bit of a tease, but there was a need to have a thread URL to refer people to. I locked it and put the embiggened message at the start to let people know it had not yet started. The box office will let me know just as they're about to start the drawing so I can get the thread opened up, if/when they give me additional information that I can share I'll pass it along.

I see the thread is posted, but it's also locked. WTH does that mean? :shock: I'm going to assume it means that nobody has their ticket yet, because Id like to sleep.

I'm a newbie, and I'm not restless. Perhaps you should have said something like "It looks like this ol' dog doesn't like to learn new tricks.." But somthing cooler then that.

Just curious, what will the "Awarded Tickets" thread do, once it's opened for posts? Is it a list of names of people who have been awarded tickets, or something? Looks to me like it's meant for posting "glee and elation". I guess each glee and elation will mirror someone's sorrow and despair, unfortunately. I guess there won't be a thread for those people.

There will probably be a thread for denied tickets, actually. One thread for each. People need to be able to celebrate freely, and be sad or frustrated as well.

I'm sure there will be several user created ones. As there will be several user created I got one! threads.
Either way, we will be here hugging everyone. Either in jubilation or consolation.
