    With less than 2 months to go until Botcon 2010 and many of us anxious to just register and be done with that process, when do you think FP will have the system ready to go?

    There should be an "I don't know" button, simply because of the MASSIVE delay we've had already, I'm honestly not sure when they'd be up. I seriously hope it's soon, though.

    Though, if I had to choose, it's between May 1 and May 7, simply because I want it up asap. :c

    If I had to take a shot in the dark guess, I would say that week of the 8th. JoeCon is this weekend, so it won't happen then, and I have the feeling that they would want a few days after the convention to get everything settled back out before jumping into the next one.

    I really dont understand the big hurry to register. The money you set aside for signup is ready whether you spent it two months ago or two days from now or whenever it goes up. You're still ready whenever it does go up, so what's the rush? Personally I'm thrilled it's taken them so long, I've sat here saving up money for the last two months thinking it would be dealer's room cash and here I've watched my trip upgrade from general admission to Minicon to Protoform and as long as it takes just a bit longer, I'll be able to go Primus.

    For me, it's actually more of "if I stare at the money much longer, I'm gonna spend it on other stuff."

    I'm an impulse buyer by nature and I've fought myself really hard to not go out and splurge on other crap that I don't need in order to save up for the sheer expense of BotCon; the hotel room is what's killin' me right now.

    Most of the people want to hurry because of the 1st 100 pins or the customs class. These fill up really fast and it's imperative that you get your registration in ASAP as soon as they go up. This is why people want it to hurry up because some people have been staying at their computer non-stop constantly refreshing the website because FP apparently isn't going to give any advanced notice for when they do go up.

    I honestly am on the same boat(sort of) were I have been completely benefiting from the long wait. This time last month it would have never of even been a possibility.

    Then say "Thank you!" to FP for forcing some patience on you and potentially stimulating your personal growth! :wink:

    Since I put 300.00 on my credit card 3 months ago now its cost me 105.00 in finance charges and a monthly online charge for a mmo I play so its literally costing me as of today 415.00 to go to Botcon. I could take off the mmo online charge to be a little more fair to FP.
