We don't currently have an ETA for when a flagging system for reviews will be available. In the meantime, please report these to email@example.com for us to look over.
The banquet is a special event not available for signup via that page. Tickets are still available for purchase and more information is available here. I will be adding some more information from our FAQ to that page before I head out today as well (such as food options and style).
Leave a Ticket, Take a Ticket
When you arrive at PaizoCon 2016, you will receive a packet containing your badge, event tickets, and other goodies. If you cannot make an event for whatever reason, there will be a designated board at the show for leaving your event ticket for other attendees to pick up. If you missed out on a lotteried event during the online lottery/registration/trading process or missed the open registration window entirely, keep an eye on this board for a ticket.
If you are looking to join a Pathfinder Society table without pre-registering, check in with the Headquarters table in the Grand Ballroom at the show for potential open seats.
Note that accepting last-minute attendee changes is up to the discretion of the GM or person running the event. If you plan on doing a last-minute ticket trade, post to the event's thread or locate the GM/person running the event to let them know.
After the Event Lottery results are announced, you can trade your event registration with other PaizoCon attendees from the Event Schedule page. In order to do this, you need to indicate which event (or events) you'd like to offer for trade in the Event Trading section that will appear on the Event Schedule page once Open Registration and Event Trading begins on Wednesday, May 9 at 12:00 PM Pacific time.
Note that in order for a trade to go through, you need to have that given time slot open on your schedule, otherwise the system will detect it as a scheduling conflict and prevent the trade from going through.
The Buddy System
You may request only one other PaizoCon attendee as your "buddy." You and your buddy will always be assigned to lottery events together. When you make a buddy request, your buddy will be sent an email asking them to accept your buddy request. They must accept your request before the end of the lottery selection process.
The buddy system is intended for guests who need to attend PaizoCon lottery events with another guest such as a parent and child. Because the lottery system can only place buddies in events with two or more open seats, it may limit the number of events available for two buddies to be placed in.
1. Send the Buddy request from the Event Schedule page.
The buddy system works for lottery events only. For open registration events both you and you buddy need to make sure to sign up for the event. Registration for open events starts on Wednesday, May 9 at 12:00 PM Pacific time.
Open Registration Events
These events are generally things open seating, on-going events, or events for Pathfinder Society (except the Sunday night special).
Open Registration will begin on Wednesday, May 9 at 12:00 PM Pacific time. You cannot select Open Registration events until then.
We have posted all of our available events so that you can more accurately plan your schedule at the show. Please keep in mind that Open Registration events may fill up, and we encourage you to register for them online prior to the convention. You can find these events by selecting "Recommended" or "Not required" under the Registration section on the left side of the Event Schedule page.
These events are generally small tables of highly sought after games. Generally these games have a limited number of seats available and in order to provide the fairest opportunity for attendees to register for these games, we run an event lottery. To be included in the event lottery and get your chance at these games, you need to register your lottery preferences by Monday, May 9 at 12:00 PM Pacific time.
Not everyone will "win" the lottery and be placed in Lottery Events. The purpose of the lottery is to make the process of signing up for these games as fair as we can. There are far more attendees than there are seats in lottery events. Depending on when your name comes up in the lottery and your preferences, you may not get into any lottery events. If this happens, keep in mind that there are still lots of open event games, seminars, and pick up games run on the fly.
Right, But How Does it Work?
How it works.
The window for preference selection ends on Monday, May 9 at 12:00 PM Pacific time. We will then announce the results and open Open Registration and Event Trading on Wednesday, May 11 at 12:00 PM Pacific time.
How to use PaizoCon Lottery, Event Registration, and the Buddy System
So you have your PaizoCon badge and you're looking at the Event Schedule page and wondering what to do? Hopefully the following will help and if not, please feel free to ask questions!
Table of Contents
If you have any questions or immediate concerns, post to this thread or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can only assign one buddy for lottery events. This is to ensure more even distribution of lottery events among attendees.
I'll see about adding these details to the description and our PaizoCon page, but:
- Food is included, served buffet style.
Heya! I've unset the old recruitment thread and lodged the new one in place and removed the extra campaign. I wasn't quite sure if you wanted those recruitment threads merged (we don't currently support multiple of a thread type for an individual campaign), but if you do, just let us know and we can do that for you :)
Removed a series of posts. Folks, using the "Breaks other guidelines" flag is a decent way to let us know about a post that doesn't quite fit with other descriptions. But, we are not mind-readers, and it's more helpful to email email@example.com about an issue rather than name calling and encouraging "dog-piling" behavior.
