    I should really plot this data because I'm not really seeing an exponential decay like one would expect...at least not a very "clean" one.

    I guess we're seeing the exponential decay that I was expecting.

    Hmmm, FE seats have "stabilized" since event pre-reg closing but RE are climbing. I guess folks are dropping out of events.

    I see a couple things happening. One GM seems to have cancelled all his events according to TTE schedule. The data now reflects these events with Sold count of zero making the seats (28 total) appear as open. I had been filtering out cancelled events using the "Is Scheduled" and "Sellable" fields, but those do not appear to be updated for this event yet. Also, it appears that you can continue registering for events again. At least, when I went to validate what I was seeing in the data, it gave me the option to add tickets for events that have availability. This is different than what I saw on Tuesday when the only events that gave this option were the seminar and social events that did not have a limit on number of tickets.

    The "Get Tickets" button is there and green, but it won't do anything (for me at least).

    Ah yes, I hadn't tried clicking on it... When I do, I get the message that registration is not open.

    At a certain date before the con arrives, they shut down preregistration. This allows them to print the individual game tickets that are provided to players and GMs when they check in at the con. The organizers need a certain amount of lead time to get everything printed, so they have to cut off online event registration to prevent things shifting while they are in the middle of printing.

    Huh...the number of seats in theory shouldn't be going down after event pre-registration is closed...
