    I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    Just wanted to provide an update about how things worked out since I never received my badge in the mail. When I arrived in Baltimore the first thing I did was walk over to Badge Services with my paperwork and followed the Otakon Comptrollers instructions to the letter. I have to tell you that I was treated so nice by security and the Otakon staff I wanted to cry. I was ushered in to Pratt street direct to Badge Services with no line, no wait. It only took minutes to submit my paperwork and receive my replacement badge. Would you believe I was ready before the other two in my party who had their badges mailed? Lol. We were in the dealers room right away and an hour early. The earliest ever. Although I wished I would have received my badge from the USPS and not have gone through a lot of aggravation, the Otakon team took care of me in the end and we had a fantastic time.

    I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    Thank you Sam, and to all Members in this forum who were so concerned and helpful on my behalf. I just got back from meeting with USPS Investigator who has concluded that my badge and Lanyard unfortunately and most likely fell out while being sorted on the line in PA. USPS in Warendale Linda made a good effort on my behalf to try to find it. The USPS investigator was very motivated to try to help me also. He provided me with supporting documents that Otakon would need. In addition the Otakon team also worked very hard to resolve the issue for me because they understood would it meant to me and my family who are coming to attend. This is the last thing they wanted to see happen. I want to personally thank Otakon Team Elizabeth C, Rea K, Sam Wein, and Comptroller Matt S. Who took the issue seriously on my behalf and provided a detailed path on how I now can resolve the issue once I come to a Otakon. With that being said and although I do not have my badge yet, I am fully confident in the Otakon team to resolve the issue when I arrive at the Conventio. This is another prime example of why we look forward to our trip to a Otakon every year. The concern and response from all of the Otakon team members involved who go out of their way to make sure members such as me and my family can attend with little issue and total enjoyment in mind. Thank you all... Thank you.... Thank you.

    What should I do now. Haven't heard back form the registration people about my badge. Don't know what to do now. Maybe I'm just being impatient but only a couple of days before the Convention. Very upset.

    Thank you so much for your concern. Since one badge and one lanyard was taken i can only think that it was stolen. I think it may be a postal worker because usps was the only one with physical contact. There were no usps scans indicating the priority envelope was damaged, in addition it was delayed a couple of days at their sorting center with no further scans until it suddenly arrived in my city . I am feeling absolutley horrible about this as any victim of this sort of thing would I guess. I already spoke to my mail carrier and called the post office who opened a case and postal inspectors will contact me next week. They said thid is very serious. I emailed the help area at otakon Outlining all the details and pictures of everything and i received a reply back that the issue was being forwarded to otakon registration troubleshooting team. That's the last I heard so far. I'm hoping that the stolen badge can be deactivated and a replacement sent to me quickly, i want to enter with my family who now have their badges . The other two in the mailing that was actually in the envelope. I never expected anything like this. This would completely ruin everything for us. I hope Otakon can help me. I'm a little panicky because it's so close to the Con start date. Please everyone continue to help with your postings and advice because it's really helping and I appreciate it. But still think is is unbelievable. Like a bad dream because we plan all year to go to Otakon.

    Omg! I hope they figure something out. Someone did say that if for some weird reason u don't get it badge, print out the receipt for that badge and take it with u to otakon. And I steadying waiting in the pre reg line, there should be another place for u to go in for mailing questions or something, but if worse comes to worse, they can help u there if not sooner.

    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.
