The Ghost of the PayPal Button
So the convention is just around the corner (this Saturday)! I am currently both horribly excited and horribly nervous. That being said, there is something important I should bring to people’s attention:
Somehow, people have been able to continue to per-register for Anime St. George 2012 even though pre-registration has been closed since September 17th…and the button is not even on the web page anymore.
There are a few different ways how this could be happening:
- People adding badges to cart before closing and simply paying for them after closing.
- People seeing a cached version of the web page which still has the pre-reg button available.
Now, I do not mind people pre-registering a three days after closing; that is fine and doable. However, having people pre-register three days BEFORE the convention is not. This is because I print everything out a head of time and pack it all up to be transported a few days before.
Luckily, I have not started printing out the pre-registration badges until today so there is no harm done. HOWEVER, I will and have deleted the Paypal button all together to prevent anyone from pre-registering after closing. If anyone else somehow (though I doubt it) manages to send in pre-registration after last night will be refunded.
