Can we use a legal middle name instead of first name, so long as its on our ID?

Your name must be your correct full name. (unless you have a substantially legitimate reason, i.e. documented history of a stalker with appropriate supporting proof). However, it looks like the fan name will be more predominant on the badge than your name, as requested in previous years.

When I went through pre-reg it gave me options for badge pickup (clockwork alchemy or famine). It said that either could be selected during the pre-reg period. I selected Fanime thinking I could go back and change it if I needed to but after I paid it no longer gave me the option.

Is there a way I can still change it (because that would be really useful)? What is the difference between the two pick up locations? Does Clockwork Alchemy offer Thursday pickup for pre-reg?

No, my question was how long pre reg is open with that price before the price increases

That date has not been set yet. We had previous price breaks set, but are looking at extending them more. Long and short, can't really tell you yet.

Will we at least get a few days notice before the price goes up?  I'm a group leader and I want to make sure all my group members are paid up before the price change, so they don't yell at me for having to pay more lol :)

Yes, we'll announce the next price tier before we actually change it. I can't say when, though.

So, I actually had a question about those of us who purchased our registration for this year the last day of Fanime 2012. I've never actually done that before, so I wanted to know, when do we usually get access to our information? (Badge number, etc.?) I'm going to guess it's a safe bet that if I made an account to register right now, my information wouldn't be there.

Do we get an email notifying us when everything is ready? Or is there some other way we usually get notified?

If you paid for FanimeCon 2013 on the last day of FanimeCon 2012, you won't be able to access your account just yet. We have not yet loaded that information into the database. We will e-mail you and announce it on the main website for when we do so.

So my registration predicament hmm. So I'm going to be picking up my Pre Reg Badge on Thursday however this year I have the pleasure of bringing my seven year old cousin for a day or two. Obviously he's 7, so woo free badge for him. So on Thursday what I'm concerned about is that he'll still be in school or possibly won't be able to make it on Thursday so he could get his badge with me. Would it be possible to get a childrens badge for him even if he's not there. I know that already sounds wrong. -_-

Following question then pertains to if I can't. In which obviously it would be a pain to go through the registration line just to get a childrens badge. So where would I go to get a children's badge? preferably to get one asap. providing I brought the child with me any other day besides Thursday. That or as stated on the FAQ I just let any staff member know that I'd like to register a child?

Thank you!  This is very helpful :)

Also, I think this has been asked before but I don't think there's been an official answer, if you're doing a group registration, does everyone have to pay at once?  Or can people be added and pay later?

In my experience, you can indeed add group members afterward.

Good answer. BUT note that the cost of the membership is when the account is paid and not when the information is entered. I can't input the info now and pay in April, expecting that I pay current rates in April.

Also, after early reg closes in some undetermined date in mid-may, all unpaid persons in an account will be deleted, purged, disapparated, or relegated to that deep dark hole where bits and bytes go to die. So, even if you enter your info online, there is no way to retrieve it when you get to con. You must reenter the information.

Greetings,

I'm doing a group registration, can we add additional members after we pay for the group reg for said price? For example, I have 5 people so far who are have jus paid for the $50 fee. Then I have people who want to join in but the $50 rate has already passed the closing date but are willing to pay the $55.

If this still possible or once group reg has paid, or are we not able add anymore after everyone in the $50 has already paid?

In the past its been as late as April, but looks like we will be getting it up a bit earlier. Maybe this month, possibly in March.

If you aren't sure if you actually pre-reged at Fanime 2012 and want to confirm, you can probably e-mail reg with your info and we can see if you're in the database.
