The Badgeless: Waiting daily at the mailbox

So, I know this is a problem for a couple of people I know, and I know Moe posted an announcement about this.

Still waiting for my badge. I live in Washington and while everyone else I am going with is basking in badgy goodness, I am here sitting by my mailbox, growing more conserned day by day.

I ask any kind sir or maim for assistance, where can I find my beloved magic rectangle?


*sniff* for I know she is out there somewhere.

edit: order date was July 12th.

I'M HALPING!

    Nanner nanner, I ordered mine a few hours before the cutoff and I've had it for almost a week.

    j/k

    The anticipation must suck, but having it, being able to touch it... It's almost worse.

    I'm sure you'll get it sorted out before the event. Five more days until you need to take action.

    True. I like what BPT told me when I called them. Basically that the venue did the mailing but they paid for postage... hmm?

    Ordered mine on the 27th of July or so, but I'm at the completely opposite corner of the country(South Florida), so I figure I have time to wait.

    Ordered mine near the deadline and got it on August first. I also live in WA. Moe made a whole post about what you should do if you don't have it yet.

    I ordered my pass back in January and I still haven't gotten it, despite living in Seattle. I am suspicious that it got stolen, though, as all the mail from the first friday when many people got theirs was conspicuously absent...

    I've resigned myself to going and getting my pass at Will Call on Thursday or such... oh well

    Seeing as this is my fifth year and being in Canada (or at least in my part of Canada), I'm used to it coming in here a week before PAX. So I won't complain or anything until Friday of next week.

    Sometimes badges get returned in the mail, so if you gave BPT an e-mail you don't check often, make sure you check it as I've called and e-mailed several people regarding returned badges that I've not heard back from.

    :oops: And here I was going "hmm, wonder why my badge hasn't arrived yet"

    Heh, that's what I get for not reading the whole e-mail after purchasing my ticket. hehe.

    I am also still patiently waiting for mine... both my roommates who ordered at the same time got theirs. ;_; Oh well. I got my confirmation right here so if it hasn't come by 12:01 am on August 20, I will be sending the appropriate emails.

    I remember having this problem a bit back last year. I ordered mine back in July and it took till the week before PAX for it to show up.

    Very tense.... very tense.

    Same thing happened to me and a friend of mine. We both ordered tickets back in July. Now we get to wait in line because BPT screwed up our orders. :C
