Half hour to go, no confirmation email yet?

Post by engineer2012 » Thu Jan 15, 2015 11:36 am

Hi all
Within 24 hour a confimation email will be send for the pre-sale, when registred, with a half hour to go, nothing yet. Time to worry?

No. Of course not.

Big deep breaths, say to yourself "Nothing ever works out as planned & that's Ok. Nothing ever works out as planned & that's Ok. Nothing ever works out as planned & that's Ok."

Don't worry you have a little time yet.

Same here, no confirmation yet, and past the promised 24 hour email confirmation time promised. But I checked and registration link again and it confirmed I was registered and gave me a confirmation number. I wouldn't sweat not receiving an email until near the end of the registration period.

Not buying a ticket. Just checking how the system is working. I can't afford $800. That's crazy talk.

I wonder how many people are doing that and how much it's slowing things down... :roll:

I did the same. No reason to slow things down... It's an automated system and things are moving along just fine. :wink:

Why couldn't you just wait to hear from other people who were actually planning on buying that it's "moving along just fine" then?

Signing up to "check how the system is working" seems ridiculous to me.

Sometimes the web/tech team asks me how things work. Now I can answer with direct knowledge.

Why is this ridiculous if it causes harm to no one? :roll:

It just seems unnecessarily busybody-like and over zealous and not really something that is going to give you any useful info.
Kinda like unboxing videos. Or camping out in front of the Apple store to be the first person who posts a video of themselves destroying an iPhone to find out what it's made of.

But I guess everyone needs a hobby...

Signing up for the presale can not possibly have been as cool as that video.

Now if you bought a presale ticket and then shot it with a ridiculous gun like that... :twisted:
