    Just got my tracking # and it says I'm due for it to arrive on Monday. Gonna try to make sure my roommate can be home to sign for it, just to be on the safe side (though I suspect they will just leave it if no one is home).


    I just received my priority package which was delayed from July 6 for some reason. The priority envelope was inside another resealed and when I opened it and the priority mail envelope inside was torn. One badge and one lanyard are missing. The other two and 3 matsuri discounts were still there. I contacted the post office and also sent an email to Otakon giving all the details,including pictures. What's going to happen? I don't have a badge someone took it.


    Man, I really hope they get that figured out for you, and catch whoever took the other badge. It's odd that they'd open it up and take just one--kind of makes me wonder if it's not someone that was planning to actually use it to go to the con, instead of selling it (otherwise, why only steal one? and why open that specific package, unless they noticed it was from Otakorp and guessed what was in it?).

    Maybe this is a long shot, but does Otakorp have any way of matching badges to attendees? Like, are the names on the pre-mailed badges already printed on the badges, or do they just have a blank space for people to write their names as in past years? Reason I ask is, if the names were printed or there were some other method of identifying which badge belongs to which person, it might be possible for someone at each door to have a list of names that reported badges stolen, and then stop those people and verify via ID that the person is who their badge says they are. Again, it's probably a long shot, but I hate to see people do this kind of crap and get away with it.


    I'm hoping the exact same thing. Maybe not names, even, but some sort of individualized barcode on the back of each and every badge? I really hope they can help this person out sad.png



    I...think there is a way.


    We got ours yesterday and we noticed that the first two elements in the barcode number were our initials followed by a set of numbers, making it easy to match badge to person.  I am CTXXX and his was PTXXX.  So the codes have some order to them.  I don't know the order to the numbers.
