    Just tried to fax in my registration, and the Fun Pub fax never sent a fax squawk & rolled over to IVR. Anyone else having problems?

    Botcon fax registration issues are legendary. This is normal.

    It's mind boggling that they even still USE fax...

    Its probably one of the easiest ways for them to ensure they get a secure signature without mail-ins, and they probably want the signatures for extra security and such. Its irritating, I know, but they probably have at least some method to their madness.

    I started faxing as soon as prereg opened, and it took me 11 hours at the fax machine before they eventually got my form. I'd better damn well get exactly what I ordered. And I won't be doing it again next year.

    Needing a signature isn't true, btw. They do NOT need one. How many internet purchases do you make that require a signature? Zero.

    Hell, you can even file government documents like I-9s and W-4s online without a signature these days.

    While there are alternatives to the signature, only the signature gives them extra security if someone tries to claim shenaningans. It's one last piece of evidence if anyone ever tries to cry foul.

    I had problems all day Sunday trying to get my fax through. Had to wait till this afternoon to finally send my fax, nervous as hell. I finally received confirmation that they received my fax so I hope I'm good.
