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!)

awesome, thank you!

Oh, but, hang on, relative links. Argh. Will try to fix.

don't worry about it, it's a big mess of javascript; the tickets would probably be sold out by the time it's all fixed. Thanks anyway!

nononono, it is SEETICKETS' rock. Except they shouldn't be under a rock, they should be WRITING A SYSTEM THAT BLOODY WORKS PROPERLY.

Or we could crush them with the rock.

Throw them into the long drops. It's the only way to be sure.

Thank you *so much* for trying! Srsly!

(I am still hitting reload and redial on the off chance that I get through so I can get a dupe id error, Just In Case, because I'm feeling monumentally bloodyminded...)

I managed to get a duplicate id error with yr registration number on the web (argh, should've screenshotted, sorry!) but now can only get 'service unavailable'.

hate hate hate seetickets

No worry re screenshot: doubt it would have helped.

It looks like once you get to the front page, you're good for 5 min to get through the forms. At that point, you get a *different* busy error. Things I have also seen after that point:
- entirely blank page, no data at all
- IIS busy error.
- Connection reset error.

The "good for 5 min" thing seems reasonable. But at that point, they should be certain that their server can handle however many requests they're letting through. It seems that it can't.

BAD BAD BAD.

I've just got the same again & have screenshotted.

FWIW mpinna had the same submit-falls-over then registration-numbers-already-used thing, and he's just got a confirmation email! Still keeping fingers crossed for yours......
julietk From: julietk Date: April 6th, 2008 11:01 am (UTC) (Link)
doop says it's appeared! Hurrah! Thank you so much, & sorry for it causing you stress!

WE HAVE TICKETS! Confirmation email just came in now.

j4, I love you for ever!
