Second verse, same as the first: Comic-Con International: San Diego 2011 registration has closed once again, due to overloaded servers of Epic, the registration company contracted by the event. The same thing happened three weeks ago when they originally tried to open it up. As has become abundantly clear and is worth repeating again: Comic-Con is really popular.
Here’s the latest, rather contrite, word from their website:
REGISTRATION IS CLOSED!
Once more, unfortunately, there have been issues with Comic-Con registration. So we have again decided to close it down.
We are well aware that many people have taken time from work, school or other activities and others woke up very early. There really is no way to convey our level of regret for this turn of events.
We are currently researching our registration options.
Unlike last time, we don’t even have a date as to when to expect more information on when registration might open up again. So keep reading for updates. And feel free to speculate on what “registration options” might work — an outlet like Ticketmaster? — in the comments.
