January 31, 2007 – Your Badge is on the Way!
The first tier badges have been mailed! If you’ve already registered, you will soon have in your possession one beautiful letter containing information about check in, programming, convention features, and….your Altonimbus Membership Badge. This PVC card will be your entry pass to the Kumoricon Convention. (A picture of a sample card will be posted later this week.)
The registration list has also been updated. Just a note - only the first tier badges have been mailed. If you ordered after Dec. 31st, 2006, you will receive your badge with the next mailout, shortly after April 10th, 2007.
If you do NOT receive your badge by Saturday, February 3rd, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Use the words “Badge not received” in the subject line for faster service.

January 14, 2007 – To the Registrants Asked for More Info
Those of you who registered during the first tier were in fact asked to supply additional information. Our ISP does not allow bulk mailing from kumoricon.org addresses. (We tried, really. ) Rather than writing over 100 emails separately, I used my personal account to send out the requests. If you do not reply with the missing information, your badge will not be processed. I personally apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but the birthdate/ emergency contact information requested is vital to proper registration.
Those of you who are still leery of replying, please send the information to email@example.com.
This is our first year mailing out badges, and our first year not requiring Convention Guardians. We really appreciate your patience as we smooth out the bumps in our registration process. In the end, you will be able to walk through the door with a simply flash of your badge and ID.
The registration form is now correct, so this only affects those who received an email. Again, I thank you for your assistance and patience.
January 1, 2007 – 5…4…3..2..100!
Happy new year! Kumoricon would like to thank the 108 people who registered in the first tier price range! This tier garnered 55 registrants last year. Today begins a new tier, so member registrations now run $30 until April 30, 2007.
The first tier registrants can look forward to seeing their new badges in the next few weeks, as we complete the printing and mail them to their expectant owners. The list of registrants is now available in the Registration tab.
We hope for the best for you and yours in the year to come.
