I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

Recommended Posts

Just got home. No badge nor tracking info. Bought this thing back at the beginning of April. I wonder what order they started processing these in?

I ordered mine right as registration started and still don't have my tracking number. And don't have my badge either despite living about a hour away from Baltimore.

As of this morning, I didn't have a tracking number. When I got home from work today, the badges I ordered were in the mail. I just checked, and there is now a confirmation number in my membership.

No badge or tracking number here either. Kind of frustrating honestly. But as long as it gets here before Day 0, I'll be okay.

Just to let you guys know, since I've seen a bunch of location based posts, the badges aren't being shipped from Baltimore. I think they're from PA, but I don't honestly recall exactly. Otakon is held in Baltimore, but Otakorp is a PA based non profit corporation :3

Well I guess that sort of explains it? Depending on where at in PA it would make sense.

Annville in PA to be exact, I looked it up.  It's on the 422 between Hershey & Lebanon.

Contact us through the help desk (help.otakon.com,) but honestly I would give it until at least Monday. The holiday weekend probably threw off the mail a bit.

The only Postal holiday last weekend was Sat. July 3 was a normal workday for them.

So having only 1 day and that being a Sat off CAN'T have messed things up that much...

You'd be surprised. I live outside DC and my parents live in Boston, normally it takes 2-3 days for mail to get there, but when a holiday is involved I've seen it take up to 10.

I got my badge in the mail earlier on today, so I do know that they are coming. Mailman asked me to sign for something today and after getting my mail pile, my badge was in there. When I checked my member account last night, I hadn't gotten my tracking number. I had no way of telling when my badge was going to show up since my number wasn't posted so I'm very thankful I was still home when the mailman showed up. All I can say now is be on the lookout.

 

Also I can also confirm that they are shipping the badges from Pennsylvania.

I just want my tracking # cause A) the mailman ALWAYS come by when I'm not home... & B) 1/2 the time there is no notice left even though the tracking info says that there was,,,

For those worried, it's worth noting that shipping is super fast once it does ship. IIRC, my tracking number said it shipped I think the 6th, and I would have gotten mine today (in California) if I or the hubby had been home at the time.

It's the 10th. No badge. No tracking number. Let's just call this whole "tracking number" experiment a huge failure. Why bother when people aren't even given the tracking number until AFTER they've received the badge?  Are we now to assume that if we get a tracking number but haven't received the badge yet, that something horribly wrong has happened to the badge?

 

Contact us through the help desk (help.otakon.com,) but honestly I would give it until at least Monday. The holiday weekend probably threw off the mail a bit.

 

The holiday was six business days ago for the USPS AND the company Otakorp paid to get the badges out.  Sorry, I can't accept that the USPS would still be in "holiday mode" a week later.

 

 

You'd be surprised. I live outside DC and my parents live in Boston, normally it takes 2-3 days for mail to get there, but when a holiday is involved I've seen it take up to 10.

 

I think we can all agree the load on the USPS for the 4th of July doesn't hold a candle to the load they experience over the end-of-year holidays.  Apples - Oranges.

I'm in Philly, PA and I just rec'd my notice from the post office, going after work to pick them up.

I am in Phila too and I still have no tracking number. I don't know maybe it will be delivered today, although I won't be home to sign for it.

 

I also think the July 4th Holiday excuse is ridiculous.I mailed something to a friend in Michigan through regular mail on July 3rd and she got it Monday.

So I have the last batch of tracking numbers in my email, I'll have to wait till closer to lunch time to upload them since the job that pays me has priority while I'm at work.  That being said we've been noting various issues (positive and negative) with how this first year roll out played out and in theory they will be used to make next year's process easier and more straightforward.

Question: I emailed the help desk about this, that my registration says both "PENDING" in the yellow box, and "complete" under the "event registration for______". I do have a space where the tracking numbers go, but could that play a roll in not getting my numbers and/or badge?? They told me they needed my full name, birth date, address and last 4 numbers of credit card I used so they can fix it, that was yesterday afternoon and it still hasn't been fixed, and I don't want my numbers to not be put up because of this mistake. Please help. 09b2ad76e20213cf81e9c4c2f369f3e9.jpg

For issues such as Pending Status, Inactive status, etc please submit a help desk ticket. This will allows to get information from you to look up your account and see what is going on. 

 

We will work as fast as we can too look at your account and fix any dependencies.

I did send one in yesterday, they might still be working on it when they get the time... But would this effect y my numbers have not come up? Or effect y my badge being mailed? I'm afraid that my badge hasn't been sent because of this and that I won't get it in time. But if it did come and my profile still said this, I wouldn't be as worried. Just wondering if it's related. But I did send one in...

I submitted a help desk ticket for the same issue and was basically given the polite equivalent of "I dunno lol." They did at least confirm that I am registered, but beyond that they apparently have no clue why the system is displaying like that.

Hmmm.... I just don't want that guy to put up the last batch of numbers and have mine not show up cuz of this, or my badge not being mailed cuz of this.

I had the same issue and talked to them. Got told i had 2 uncompleted registrations and 1 completed and paid for. Dunno how that happened but didn't seem to be a major problem and the girl said I should still get my badge in the mail cause she could see I was to be sent one. I still have no tracking number shown but I'm in hopes I get one soon. She did say if for some odd reason I didn't receive one to take my receipt and confirmation email with me and show them it and explain the issue. But that was the "if for some weird reason I didn't get my badge". I'm guessing I should get it then...but idk...I guess il see.

I have the same "pending" thing, but my tracking number just came in now so I don't think it's an issue. I'm assuming I was last batch, so this is the time to check accounts again

I woke up late today and checked on the USPS website. Nothing changed, no updates, it still said it left the post office a few days ago. When I went out to our mailbox, our badges were there! I didn't have to sign for them after all! c: A friend of mine in PA received hers today and said she had to sign, so I guess it depends on your delivery person.

I hope I get it in the next hour cuz I leave for work, or tomorrow. I did sign up for the text message alerts, so even if they do try to deliver it today while I'm at work, I will get an alert and know about it and if the guy decided to leave it without a signature or if I need to go to the post office and pick it up.

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.

Just checked my member account and my tracking number is listed.

According to the USPS tracking site, it shipped last night and is expected to arrive tomorrow.

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.
