Just a thought for GCIX: Why not have a pre-registration period of say, a week or two, where everyone can load their carts up with events and then run registration on "event registration day" similar to a fantasy sports draft, giving everyone a fair shot at games with no regard to personal schedules, dexterity, connection speeds or server capacities? Diamond Badge holders would get first choice, followed by Platinum Badge holders, followed by Gold & Silver (together?). The order determined within each tier (Diamond/Platinum/Gold&Silver) would be random for the first round and then go in reverse order on the following round. So Diamond badge holders, for example, would always choose first each round, but the last person in the Diamond line in the first round would be the first person to pick in round 2. I think it would save a lot of headaches, especially for the staff, and present a relatively fair playing field to all. Also, I still like the Gold & Silver coin system and hope it continues to be used. It just feels right for Gary Con IMHO.
