[PRIME] PAX Prime 2012 is COMPLETELY SOLD OUT!

PAX Prime 2012 is completely sold out!

A summary, now that passes are totally sold out.

1) PAX prime is popular, and will always sell out, likely faster than it did the previous year.
2) To the folks who are asking for a notification method: Twitter is and has been your friend for quick PAX notifications for years. Don't like Twitter? Too bad, you might miss out on some tweet notifications. If they ever change the notification system, I bet the announcement of that change will be A TWEET.
3) They are not changing registration for this year and they are not adding more badges, pax is sold out.
4) There will be a suggestions thread after pax in which you will be able to post an intelligent and well thought out suggestion on how to improve registration (or something else about pax).

If you want to continue to discuss the registration system, please be calm, collected, and think before you post.

Working registration has been re-launched!

Hopefully it doesn't die this time!

Good luck, and <deity>speed.

If you have registration problems, post them here. The powers that be will be occasionally taking a look over here.


If you previously registered under the old system, you should have already received a second confirmation email that talked about the mess and that you were still all set for your registration. YOU DO NOT NEED TO RE-REGISTER UNDER THE NEW SYSTEM. If you have issues, email pax_questions@paxsite.com with detailed information for a resolution.

More information for if you registered under the old system. Currently you cannot log in to the new system with your old system's information to edit your registration. I got confirmation that this will be addressed within the next week or so, and we will receive yet another confirmation email that details our original registration as it gets transferred into the new system.
We will be transferring the data early next week. You’ll get a new confirmation that you will be able to log in with and update your information. Thanks for your patience.

    I bought passes before the PAX Pass Crash of 2012. I later got an email from PAX saying they were changing websites for the registration process. It told me that I did NOT have to repurchase my passes. So if people are unsure, check if you got that email before buying again.

    I have info in the OP that addresses that, along with even more information I received from pax_questions. =D

    So I got my badges before the crash. Got the second email. But I wanted to log in and check my badges. But it says that the email I used is not registered. I know it's entered correctly though.
    What gives?

    hmm I have questions about how many I got with the old system. I'll email paxquestions again to see if I can get a straight answer, since the new registation is open.

    Is there a phone number I can call to talk to a person dealing with the tickets?

    I got registered! Just waiting on a hotel. My mom works for this big discount rewards program for Intel employees (google Passport Unlimited), and she is checking to see if there is a better deal at the Sheraton through it.

    Indeed. Reed Exhibitions are the folks that help put PAX together along with PA.

    Is it PAX Prime yet?

    Just tried calling. It's after hours. I'll try calling in the morning. Stupid East coast time difference.

    @Zoroark173 To my knowledge there are zero rooms available at the Sheraton for non-conference attendees for that weekend. None.

    So unless this Intel rewards program has blocks of rooms reserved, that discount ain't gonna do you any good.

    EDIT: They don't charge your card now, so if you want the Sheraton you should book it now through OnPeak, then cancel if you can find a better deal. There's no charge for that until like the week of the con.

    You can hand them to him in person.

  • anomalyxanomalyx Registered User
    Ok, all I wanted to say is this is some serious bs. How can you be sold out of 3 day passes when you still have single day passes available for all 3 days? Shouldn't there be 3 day passes until 1 of the 3 days is totally sold out?

  • MelceneMelcene Tacoma, WARegistered User regular
    Holy crap. Not even two days (counting last week). Not even sure if today + last week would be a full 24 hours. That's craziness.

    Incredible. Last year they sold out in 22 days, if I'm not mistaken. This could generously be considered two days. So glad I gave my friends a heads-up earlier today.

    I agree with anomalyx

    Because they're completely different passes. The three days passes say 3-DAY on them, whereas the single day passes don't even say 1-Day, but the particular day of the week.

    This does not effect me as I got in the early sale by pure luck, but why don't they just make LESS of the single day and MORE of the 3 day?! Demand is OBVIOUSLY there and this is HORRIBLY unfair to anyone who can't sit on their computer at all hours waiting.

    Holy crap, already? Thank god I got in last week. In terms of actual uptime on the site, went from 22 days to like 22 hours.

    That's a bit of a lame excuse.
