  1. My badge was attempted to be delivered at my parents' house (I was moving to a new apt before the badges were shipped, so went with a 100% safe address) but the ONE TIME they stepped out of the house that morning the badge was attempted to be delivered :(


    But no worries - they're going to snag it from the post office for me and I'll have it well before the convention :)

  2. 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 :(

  3. I have a tracking number now.  My badge evidently shipped from State College on Wednesday, then went southwesterly to Warrendale for some reason, but is at the Harrisburg post office now and schedule to come tomorrow.  That's convenience as I should be on hand to sign for it on a Saturday, thus sparing me some potential nuisance.  Well, unless they feel they need to divert it to Wilkes-Barre or wherever for some reason.


    This should make my Thursday before Otakon much easier and more pleasant than it has been or otherwise might have been.


    This is terrible... I'm so, so sorry. I hope that this gets resolved as soon as possible!
