I see tickets... - shadows of echoes of memories of songs

I see tickets...
Or not.

I did actually see the "book now" link! But when I followed it, it went back to the "EPIC FAIL" page. The one where the seetickets homepage doesn't explain to anybody who might not be interested in Glastonbury tickets

Good luck to anybody else who's trying to get through...

ETA: I have bought tickets for me and my mum. Now trying to use the spare booking windows I had open for other people!

ETA: Okay, look, I can fairly reliably get a booking window up, but when you hit submit (with reg no, or even with cc details etc) it can still bounce you back to the 'busy' screen, leaving you with no idea whether you've submitted anything. FAIL FAIL FAIL. I am very reluctant to take responsibility for other people's bookings when it is this flaky, after possibly screwing up mpinna's. But if you want me to try, let me know....

ETA I am not trying again for anybody because it is ALL THE FAIL. It should not be able to reset the connection while submitting your credit card details, and if it does, then it should be bloody clear on whether or not this means your booking has gone through. As it is, the registration numbers all come up as "already used" but there's no indication that the payment has been accepted. ARGH.

Gah, still FAIL for me.

Although the "service busy" window is coming up reliably now, which is an improvement.

see ETA on my post - I can get the booking form but I don't trust it because their service is still SO FUCKING FLAKY.

Argh um not sure! Given flakiness etc... (thank you for offer! May take you up on it shortly.)

My suspicion would be that the "busy" response = "not submitted" & that submitting again would be the correct thing to do. (Although that is SO UNBELIEVABLY SHIT. Even worse than last time.) ISTR they've said that if ppl accidentally get duplicates they'll sort it out.

I idly wondered earlier this year about going to Bayreuth to see a Wagner opera, preferably the Ring cycle. Turns out, the way you get to go to Bayreuth is that you apply for tickets, you are turned down, you do that for about ten or fifteen years, and eventually your name comes up and you get a ticket. Nein danke. But they could do something similar with Glastonbury - get all the applications, allocate tickets by lottery, and then the following year give priority to the people who didn't get tickets last year.

I'm with Owen on Glastonbury, though.

Do you have the source code to the registration page? I seem to remember two Glastonburys ago it was possible to load that up manually and then just keep trying to click the submit button..

Okay!

BTW when you get past that, all the regnos and postcodes are encoded in the URL:

(those have already been used, just given as an example!)

CONFIRMATION EMAIL

I got the confirmation email, looks like it went through perfectly :-) :-) :-)
j4, I love you for ever!

Re: CONFIRMATION EMAIL

How long did it take you to get your confirmation email? We put all of our details and payment and then it didn't get through to the next page. When we've tried to go through again it's saying our reg details have already been used. Did this happen to you?

Re: CONFIRMATION EMAIL

Paid for mine at 9:11 and just got the confirmation email now. That one went through with no problems, but the two other bookings I did for other sets of people had the same problem (submit payments, connection fails, subsequent attempts say registration numbers have already been used). ONE of those sets of people has just got their confirmation email but the other hasn't yet..... fingers crossed for everybody!!
