I noticed it said registration time was from 5pm - 8pm on Thursday. JNow is that just to get new registration or is that the only time to pick up badges as well? I am my group leader and was hoping to get our badges earlier on Thursday. Please let me know. Thanks.

This may be just me, but did the price for the full weekend ticket go down?  I remember in 2008, I payed $70 for it I think.  I noticed the same thing last year too.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but it would be nice to know.  =)

As much as I'd love to lie to you and say that "prices did indeed go down!", I can't. Prices didn't go down from previous years.

I was reading in another thread that you had to present valid ID to pick up pre-registration badges.  Do I need to provide ID if I'm registering at the door?

You must be pre or early reg'd in order to participate in Day 0 events as far as I know. Sorry. :(

I know you don't need a badge in order to peruse Swap Meet (and by extension the Gaming room). Don't know about anything else.

From the Swap Meet rules page:

Quote
We know some attendees arrive late on Thursday night and will not have badges yet. No badges are required for Buyer / Attendee entry on Thursday (badges are required for Sellers).

Since Swap Meet is in the same place as Arcade, I believe they both are unbadged to enter for Thursday night.

Hi, I was wondering if there will be two-day badges sold, since only 4-day and 1-day badge prices are listed. Please let me know. Thank you!

No, there shouldn't be any two day badges. If you think you'll want to go for more then one day get the full weekend badge.

I was wondering since I registered my sister under my group but she doesn't have any form of government ID, is it okay if I just pick it up without her needing to bring her ID? I think I read somewhere that group leader ID is needed only yeah? Need to be absolutely sure of this before things goes wrong while we are out there :P

You are correct. Only you, the group leader, needs to be present with ID to pick up the badges.

So in others words, free entrance? Is the hour of operation the same as the registration hour?

That's something, at least. Badges don't generally sell out Comic Con style, do they? And there aren't horrendous lines for at-con reg like they have at AX, are there? First time going, so of course Sod's Law applies.... :<

Because we don't sell one-day memberships before that day, we won't be able to say beforehand if we "sell out" and by sell out, I mean that the SJCC has maximum capacity and we aren't allowed to admit anymore people unless we want to become a huge fire hazard and probably multiple safety laws. Hahaha. (Or at least, I'm pretty sure. That's how it was described to me. o: )

Basically, one-day/at-con memberships are first come-first serve *if* there was any concern for selling out.
Lines aren't too bad at Fanime. Last year I believe the longest was maybe... 3 hours? But tbh it really ranges. Saturday morning can be like 3 hrs, and then like Saturday mid afternoon can be literally 5 minutes. It's been like that before, where it's totally and completely empty after it's totally full and rushed.

Of course, I can't say the same will be for this year, since it always always *always* changes.

Ok I'm pre-reg so I come at 5pm on Thursday to get my badges for my group? Not Earlier? Just want to be clear so i don't accidentally waste my time.

Right. You can come on Thursday to pick up your badge, but don't bother showing up on Wednesday.
