Hey Mike, saw the pre-order tickets announcement, should we start getting them now or is there going to be a exclusive set and ticket lumped together pre-order?

Two totally different things.
The pre-purchasing tickets online is to help us move the line ups along smoothly to the Convention, and give us a much better idea on an exact number of attendees. It also helps us to see who actually pays attention to the website/message boards/facebook, etc. In short - if you wait to pay until the day of the con to enter - you WILL be in a line up as the ticket holders will be taken care of first - since, it'll be easier for us to take care of them and get them in the door.

The Con sets (as always) will still be on a first-come, first get basis, and only at the Con.
About a month prior to the con, we'll release 25 (or, maybe 50) pre-orders online. No combining the sets with admission this year either.

T-Shirts may be done separately as well.


For anyone that has no clue what NDK is talking about - hit up www.canadianjoecon.com to find out!

More news coming soon. Just "finalizing" some things.

Since you are not combining Con Set with admission, do you have to buy an admission first before you can preorder the Con Set?

I followed these links:

http://www.canadianjoecon.com > Registration (http://www.canadianjoecon.com/reg.php) > To Pre-Register, follow this link HERE (http://joecanuck.com/cjc/index.php?main_page=down_for_maintenance). And I get this message:
"The site is currently down for maintenance. Please excuse the dust, and try back later."

Then I realize I should have use another route: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/245185 (from the main page... because the logo can't be clicked from other pages...)

Bottom line... not very user friendly...  :(

REGISTRATION and TICKETS are two different things.

Also - top of this page that you linked to : http://www.canadianjoecon.com/reg.php
 
Registration
The 2012 REGISTRATION FORM will be uploaded in June 2012. Please only use the information below as a reference.


The link you clicked takes you to the 2011 Con Store. If you looked above, you'd see last years date on that page.
Last year we set that up 1 month before the con. This year we allowed tickets to be purchased months in advance since (as stated) it's an easier way of doing things for us.

Site maintenance does happen from time to time. It's happened here at JoeCanuck many times when updating the board software and making changes. So WHEN the store does re-open, don't be shocked to see it down for maintenance again at that point. For now, it's shut down - simple as that.

Also, that Ticket link works on every single page at www.canadianjoecon.com. I just tested it on both my PC and my iPad.
If anyone else has any issues with the link not working besides Martin, please let me know.

Bottom line... very user friendly.

Jason Loo will be there, so hopefully that is a good omen about another comic. 

Personally, I would like to see stands included.  I know it is a sort of nit-picky comment, but I think they look good.

So, I'm new to the boards as you can see, and will be making my first trip to a convention in August.  Funny story, actually.  Last night, I was at the NY Yankees game with a friend of mine and we were talking about the convention.  We're both from NY and huge Yankees fans, btw.  He was happy to go and suggested that we see a Blue Jays game while we we were up.  Funny enough, the Yankees and Blue Jays are playing the same week of the Con, which is pretty awesome.  I figured that was a sign, so we had to go.  So, see you in a months and looking forward to meeting folks.
