cant believe I need to ask questions .... but lets put the mind at ease .... if it shows registrations having been used already ..... you just delete them and put in another group hoping that yours haven't become locked and payment has gone through ?

I believe the error message is slightly different if they're already used vs if they're locked. I think if they're used it says something like 'tickets already allocated' whereas when ours got locked last year it said something like 'cannot allocate', however this is based on memory from the hell of last year's sale so could be wrong.

If someone has already bought a ticket with a registration number it highlights it on the form with something along the lines of "Registration already used" at which point you have to do a quick swap for another reg & postcode or clear the line and press "proceed" again and hope tickets are still available.

Feeling utterly anxious about tomorrow after having a confident run of four years followed by failing miserably in all sales last year and the coach sale in this one. Best of luck to you all. What will be, will be.

Sending positive thoughts to everyone on this forum. Who knows what the human mind is capable of? Hopefully some positive sub-atomic particles bouncing around the universe from my brain will affect that connection and get us all through! Only trying for 2 and never been successful so please throw some positive atoms back at me via the internet. Ta!

Final question ahead of tomorrow.. On Thursday I got session timeout/black screen for a lot of the sale not even the holding page, anyone recommend the best way of dealing with this? Just keep refreshing or should I do a browser close and open?

As in using the back button instead of refreshing? I just can’t decide the best approach.

I personally don't think it's safe. Even if you don't give them your card details (never give strangers your card details on the internet! It's basic!), they could always get your tickets, you transfer the money, then they can cancel your deposit and have made a £25 profit per person. Plus aside from the lost money, you've lost your shot at a ticket.

While I agree in general that it's risky, just to say that I don't think someone else is able to cancel your deposit. I don't think you cancel until April and the way you cancel is just by not paying. But you pay the balance on your own ticket. Correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure there wouldn't be a way for someone to do this.

Good luck for tomorrow all!

Cheers. I guess that's reassuring. Well, hope it is! No fibre where i live - very rural. And the phone signal is pathetic-to-non existent unless i hang out of a window upstairs. Just checked the broadband speed: 0.83. Terrible, but functioning....

Not sure if it's already been mentioned, but you can set up short cut keys text replacement for Apple devices ie iPad and phone.

Goto settings

general

Keyboard

Text replacement

It should speed up time massively if you get through.

Apologies if already been said

I'm pretty sure (and I could also be wrong!) I remember reading on the info page that you can cancel ticket deposits sooner than the balance date

Don't think you can cancel other people's though? Just your own surely. You must need more details than just a registration number. I don't know though, I always thought the earliest you could cancel was by not paying in April.

Laptop has decided it wants to do a big update 😯

I have just run windows update on mine to get it out of the way. Also, checking no backups or AV scans are running as well. Closing off any unecessary apps as well

Will it help or hinder if I have Chrome and IE running at the same time; two tabs but different browsers?
