    was in the middle of a massive arkham horror game when it went off and now im sitting at my comp watching them play lol.

    Mine did too. It looks like all that they changed was a class on the SOON status, and ultimately decided to change it back.

    What's that mean exactly? :P

    My monitor went off as well but it had nothing to do with the SOON status.

    Whew. I was worried my page monitoring wasn't working but I am only checking the text around it.

    Good morning wonderful people. It's Wednesday. Imma get some Chicken Curry from Tanya's Soup Kitchen to go along with my chai and have a pleasant F5 lunch.

    Happy hunting.

    Primed and ready (see what I did there?), but I don't think today is the day. I'm feeling next Wednesday to be more likely.

    You're probably right about it not being today but it's still really exciting to be a part of the f5 brigade again.

    Very happy that the F5ing has been relegated to pretty much the last weeks of May. It has lifted a ton of stress from me since I had so much going on these past several weeks.

    That being said, let the F5ing and watching the site like a hawk commence!

    I just got my 8th-year anniversary badge for the forums here. And the reason I joined back in 2007: to discuss PAX Prime and getting tickets. Here's to 8 years of F5!

    Sorry, it was late when I wrote that. I'm only monitoring the reg page - this is what my page monitor sent to me:
    The PAX Prime Registration site has changed! As of 2015-05-05 21:24:00 the following changes have occurred:
    ---
    +++
    -80 +80

    - <ul id="badges"><li class="soon"><h3>Soon</h3></li></ul></div>
    + <ul id="badges" class="hi"><li class="soon"><h3>Soon</h3></li></ul></div>

    The previous change occurred on: Tue May 05 21:23:07 2015

    And then later:

    That's the only thing that I noticed them messing around with.

    Although, IIRC, them messing around with the reg page usually leads to *something* happening the next day. But, I suppose that it is all superstitions at this point :smile:

    Either way, count me in for the F5 brigade!

    Prices haven't updated yet, so I really don't think it'll be today.

    However, as mentioned above, the SOON icon did change. You can actually see this change (along with the altered sold-out icon) on the public assets page here.

    Obviously this is just another piece to hint towards the elimination of 4-day badges. One thing I've noticed though is that the badge boxes on the assets page are still fit for one long box and four small boxes underneath. Maybe we'll see them update those too before tickets go live.

    I have a feeling that tickets will probably be on sale on the 20th. Last year they did wait until we were past the 100 day mark, so it would make sense that we'd be down to about the same this year.

    Also that means we're in the last two weeks of the month. Ie: later in may

    Weird....sometimes, when I try to bring up the Pax site on my smartphone, it brings up "dunsp.vzw.com". Does anyone else have this issue? Is it going to effect my ability to get tickets when the time comes?

    Additionally, when I look at the details for it, it says "Issued by Symantec Class 3". My phone considers it "Not trusted".

    Thanks Dreamwriter! It's been bugging me a lot. Should I contact my provider then?

    I also heard this, but it was earlier in this thread. Not sourced to anything official. But if the rules are "not as late" and "later in May", we have 2 prime Prime candidates. 5/13 and 5/20.

    Entirely possible/probable. We'll just have to wait and see.

    I have been using teamviewer to watch chrome refresh the registration page, but every time I close teamviewer on my phone there's a prompt that appears on my computer that covers the 'soon' bit, so when I go back on teamviewer I have a mild burst of excitement when I see 'register online.' Then I get disappointed when I realize that it still says 'soon' after I close the prompt. Haha

    Are we sure the tickets will never go on sale Monday or Tuesday? And did they confirm that they're using the same company as last time?

    Wednesday has been the day for the last 5 US Paxen. Does that mean anything? Yes. Until it doesn't.

    Hmmm...so I'll probably still check Monday and Tuesday, just in case.... I'm also curious about something. There's been comments about using "auto-fill" when you get tickets on your phone, but I have no idea what that is. Is it an app? Is it useful?
