How are those of us who don't have children supposed to pre-register?
Yeah its not letting me... there is no option to say some thing of the line of 0 children
try again, i've been told it's been fixed?
Caused by a minor settings error. Should be working now!
While it is implied in the announcement, it is worth emphasizing that those of you who register online must still check in at preregistration on Thursday for the TCG and on Friday for VG. If you miss check in you will need to go through late registration early in the morning the next day.
We will do our best to allocate staff resources so that check in for those who register online is faster than preregistration for those who don’t. It is also worth emphasizing that anyone who registers online but does not check in during preregistration will not be entered into the raffle.
Oh course the biggest incentive for participating in online registration is that it takes some of the pressure off of the computer operators. Besides being a nice thing to do for some of our most dedicated and overworked staff members, it is also helps us get an accurate roster posted sooner, which in turns helps us get the tournament started faster.
I have had a player with byes ask me if they need to do anything special to get their byes if they preregister. Should they put that they have a bye/byes in the details of their ticket? At nationals do they need to be in the special line for players with byes like there was in previous years or do they need to be in the online prereg check in line? Do they have to go to both to check in AND claim their byes?
As per the instructions:
"10. If you have earned a bye via an approved qualifying event, please indicate the number of rounds and where the bye was earned in the Details field. (Example: I have a two-round bye from Spring Regionals: Salt Lake City.)"
Missed that line, Thanks
I can neither confirm nor deny that that line may or may not have been added after you read it the first time.
You guys can really be tricky sometimes.
If you won't be arriving until after on-site preregistration closes, there is no reason to preregister, is there?
The prerequisites won't be checked until after the last BRs are submitted, correct? We don't have to wait until we can fulfill the prerequisites in order to preregister.
Big ups to op for making this happen using resources in hand. Onward!
He's just pressing your buttons.
I don't know if it is me, or something is amiss, but it will not let me submit the ticket.
Edit: There is no submit button after the information has been input.
This makes me very hopeful that we will also get online pairings this year! This is a nice step forward.
For masters it is required that you have 15 Play! Pokemon Points. I have 17, but all were from last season. Do those count towards this year's Nationals?

I believe Play Points are reset each season.
Select the option that says your question wasn't answer. It should appear once you do that.
While you wouldn't be entered into the drawing, there is still value to preregistering, in that your name will be pre-entered into TOM in anticipation that you'll be attending, and a registration card will be printed with your information on it. This, in and of itself, is very helpful to the registration team. Ultimately, up to you though.
We cannot make people submit their events on time, so no. The last BRs are on 6/16, over a week in advance of the deadline to preregister. I would hope that all organizers have reported their results by that time, given that 7 days is the deadline for event reports. However, as mentioned, we can't make people report on time, and we won't spend a large amount of time chasing down late reporters.
Okay, so preregister even if you're going to show up Friday morning, got it :thumb:
