Technical difficulties this morning forced Comic-Con International organizers to close online membership sales within two hours opening. Only a handful of purchased were purchased, they say.
Sales began at 9 a.m. PT, but complaints began to appear by 10:15. One commenter at Robot 6 was reportedly stuck in the first step of the registration process for more than an hour.
In a message on the Comic-Con website, organizers apologized for the technical problems, and said a new registration date will be announced on Nov. 8.
Actually I was having problems right at 9:00 a.m. but had to go to a meeting and hoped it would be cleared up when I got back. Apparently it wasn’t. Follow the #SDCC hashtag on Twitter and see how many people were having problems. The entire Tradeshow Registrar website was down for some time during this whole thing too so that shows you the severity of the problems.
Actually, complaints began to appear by 09:00. Twitter went mad right away, and there was no way to reach step 3, let alone complete the registration process. I think most of us wasted 1 hour and 45 minutes of our life, waiting there for nothing to happen.
