LAN #93. Booking, Discounts & MyLAN

Booking
LAN #93 booking and payment will now be handled directly on the GameGrin site. You can find the event booking page here; GameOn LAN #93. There's now no need to wait on manual authorisation to see that you're booked and paid for the event - it should happen instantly. I'm still working on the seating group feature, though that should land within the next couple of weeks. Look out for another announcement for that.

Discounts
We will be running the usual Early Bird booking discount, which nets you £10 off your ticket for booking and paying in advance.

We'll be trialling a new discount system for next LAN, which will be called "Interaction Discount". In exchange for making comments on articles on the main GameGrin website you'll get a personalised discount rate for your ticket, the amount of which is based on a number of factors. When the next LAN is announced, individual discount rates will be calculated and youíll be able to see it on your profile and the LAN booking page. This discount rate will also apply to the Early Bird price, so you could end up with an incredibly cheap ticket!

Once the announcement has passed and your discount generated, the timer starts over and comments made past that point will go toward your Interaction Discount for the next LAN. So donít stop once you've had your discount level for that LAN!

We did want to have this in place before this upcoming LAN in October, however, time restraints mean this hasn't been feasible. In lieu of this we're offering a Double Early Bird. For the first 7 days of bookings (till the 4th of August), tickets will cost £35. From the seventh to the fourteenth day, tickets will return to their usual Early Bird price of £45. Once the Early Bird finishes, tickets will return to their full price of £55.

I will mention that the calculations are based on averages, so you can't just make all your comments in one day either - and they also have to hit a certain quality criteria, so attempts at 'shitposting' your way to a discount won't work.

You can use your forum accounts on the GameGrin site, so you wonít need to register for another service, but you could also use your Facebook account to sign in, should you so choose. Note that in order to be able to obtain any Interaction Discount, you'll need to be signed in when you make comments.

New "MyLAN" system
Thereís a whole new MyLAN system in continuous development at the moment too, that allows you to manage your seating groups** and food whilst at the event, as well as view some important information regarding LANs. The main page of GameGrin now has events in the sidebar - and there will be a link to the MyLAN system displayed next to it at all times to ensure quick access.

BOOK YOUR PLACE NOW

Can confirm you've paid.

Issue with the notification of payment from PayPal, know what the problem is, just waiting on the resending of it from PayPal to confirm the fix.

IPN's can be a royal PITA to work with and their system can be pretty fickle at times

Will be paying as soon as I get the leave booked in at work

Might be easier on Google Maps either setting the long/lat or the name of the location, it's halfway down the road and could be confusing for new attendees as it's not exactly signposted

Yes. This certainly wasn't in any part my fault. None. Whatsoever.

Oof, so it is. It's Lat/Long set - just slightly in the wrong place. Will update now.
