Registration confirmation

Can you please tell us something about registration confirmation and paying the registration fees? I registered just hours after registration opened almost two weeks ago, but I have not yet received a confirmation. I assume that confirmation also contains the available payment methods for the registration fee. Siebrand 05:57, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

I got the same issue. I also have a problem with registration in WikiSym with no feedback. — Fnielsen 10:12, 28 June 2010 (UTC)
The same me, but I would like to make a new registration if possible.--Juan de Vojníkov 10:21, 28 June 2010 (UTC)
We have no record of problems with registration to WikiSym. Please send email to info@wikisym.org. Thank you Dirk Riehle 11:27, 28 June 2010 (UTC)
Me as well - has anyone actually received any follow-up? Shimgray 19:16, 28 June 2010 (UTC)
I also haven't received any feedback, I think I'll try to register again --JuhaV 05:24, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
I tried to register again and got the same notice about "...You will receive an e-mail within the next 2-3 days with payment instructions" --JuhaV 05:36, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
same with me. No reaction to my registration. --Elya 06:22, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
I think it's clear the organisation has some challenges on all fronts. We should assume that the registration at least got to them, and that there are not yet mechanisms in place to make the confirmations. I would urge everyone to not register a second time in case the system has already told you that the registration was received at registration time. This would only increase the load on the organisation. Siebrand 06:24, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
  • What Siebrand said. Registration is working, in that the notifications are getting through to a database; it's payment that's a problem. Please don't register twice! -- Phoebe 07:14, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Yes, Wikimania and WikiSym is a different registration. By the help of Phoebe I now have registered and received feedback for WikiSym. Like Siebrand I will then assume that the Wikimania registration went through alright and wait. Thanks. — Fnielsen 11:37, 29 June 2010 (UTC)

Change of Registration Data

  • I want to change my registration. My arrival will be July 8 instead of July 7. --Friedel Völker 12:10, 29 June 2010 (UTC)

Cost of registration

How much does the registration actually cost? The registration page says "Please make arrangements for a wire transfer in the amount of €30 as soon as possible,", while this page says 40 euros. --Eleassar 08:56, 4 July 2010 (UTC)

My registration confirmation said "Please initiate a Paypal transfer to wikimania@wikimania2010.pl in the amount of €40 as soon as possible." Siebrand 10:51, 4 July 2010 (UTC)
