I got bumped out of the waiting room after 20 minutes as well, with the invalid code message. The only way to get back in was to clear my cache... ::sad panda::

If they can't even handle DS, the regular ticket sale is going to CRUSH them.

Like I said, I have tried Firefox and ie. cleared both caches, tried a different computer. When I finally get out of waiting room it says code invalid. That is using the link in my email and manually typing in codes. This is not user error.

For those who got tickets, how did you do it? Did you get the error code first?

Sonofabitch! Was in waiting room cruising along, sent to ticket page CODE INVALID. Google chrome! Now I'm in waiting room again with IE? Could they have not given me this invalid code before I got to waiting room?

....and "invalid" again. How many times must we clear cookies? If we just end up invalid that may not be a fix.

@BManTickets says to clear browser cache, which is a different thing from cookies. So I'm trying that too.

Once you're in the waiting room, does that mean I won't get the "Invalid code" message again?

We are getting LOTS of people from my camp getting invalid promo code. Even after clearing cache AND from folks that hadn't logged in before noon.

Jet actually made it to the purchase portion and it will not process the payment. She has tried multiple cards. (Yes, they are valid cards with plenty of room on them.)

What sucks is that these are not even for us. One of our people is out of town and has no access to purchase them herself. So all of the frustration and headache of (hopefully) buying and none of the reward in August.

So...to recap...

We should each have two different browsers open

We should switch between them as we get timed-out from them

We may be able to get this to work like the three people so far who have

Zen process, Zen process...INVALID ...argh fuck...reboot.

Doubtful the sale is over... Also... I've been through the waiting room twice and gotten to an invalid code. Ticket support says I'm alright.

I've come to see this as part of the experience. It gives you the same psychological effect as a huge dust storm rolling in. Can't see anything... no idea what's happening.

None of my camp mates can get tickets! All have invalid codes. I agree that ticket fly sucks. I had to create an account just to get my ticket, but now I am the only one going.

I got two tickets!
I first tried and got the too high demand error.
Next I did an F5 refresh browser for about 5 minutes...finally got into the waiting room. After 15 minutes in waiting room with no errors I got the Ticketfly page.
I had pre registered with Ticket fly so I logged in and got the order page.
Choose two tickets....entered cc number and bang TWO TICKETS TO PARADISE.
-
My friends got the error codes and finally got in by a reboot PC. They have been waiting in the waiting room and once got an invalid promo error. They refreshed and got back in waiting room. Still waiting.

Good luck ...Be positive!!!

Invalid promo code... crum!
It appears they are marking codes as used before you get to the buy a ticket screen.
Has anyone gotten a bad code error and then been able to get past it and buy tickets?
If so, how? (waiting room doesn't count)
