And again, no registration today. We have one major issue that is being worked out. We apologize for the delay. In order for the code to be very simple and error free on your end, it is very complicated on our end. We don't want anyone to have a problem with their registration.

On a side note the box art will go online today at BotCon.com.

Thanks for your patience,

Brian


We will post the box art as soon as it's available!

Somebodys got some serious issues....

If Funpub is an actual business, then somebody needs to be either fired, demoted, fined, or just plain held accountable for this mess. Messing with peoples money is bad for business.

Agreed. Even though I have never tried to register for a Botcon and am not familiar with their application, I cannot help but think there are already commercial software packages out there that could have been purchased and skinned to do the job. I mean, how many conventions are there in the US each year? How different is the registration process for each convention? Just use an existing product.

I was looking forward to getting my first ever non attending package this year. It's been a hard year and I saved up a bunch just for this. But now, I don't even want to spend the money on this anymore. I just feel disgusted by this. Sure, they are trying to get things right so registration can work. But still, when are they going to get it right, the day before?

Does Hasbro even need Funpub ??? Surely they have the money to hire people to create a convention from scratch rather than using a company that creates conventions. Why not just get rid of the middle man ??? Hasbro made enough on the Transformers brand to make it a worthwhile investment. Give Funpub the boot and let them go handle the Hello Kitty and Pez dispenser conventions... :o) :o) :o)

Was last year's online registration like this?

Last year was my first time going to BotCon. I didn't register online, I actually stood in line to buy a pass the day of (ugh, what a long line).

Last year's registration along with every year before was a pdf file that you would have to fill by hand then mail or fax to them.

I waited in that line with my friends when it was open to the public, it was long and slow.
