I'm registered...

I didn't register for either RWT as waiting to see what the schedule is and if I can take both...if not will have a hard time deciding which to take.

I am a little unhappy that the credit card information web page was NOT a secure page "https" but was sent "in the clear" so to speak...

I had a little glitch at the beginning, it kept rejecting my e-mail and pw, I had to go back to the aardvark mailing list site and reconfirm my login. So, I'm probably way down around 8th or 10th on the list.

The apparently mandatory "charitable" donation of $5.00 per person in order to register is unacceptable and, I believe, a violation of FlyerTalk policies.

We would only be there on Saturday for RWT. It's enough of a hit to be assessed $95/head to cover, among other things, bus transportation that we won't be using (everyone will be walking to RWT) and t-shirts that we'll probably never wear. We had a nice, sweltering visit to the Heritage Museum last year and, to be honest, it's nowhere on my list of charities to be support.

Burj,

YOur information was transmitted to Regonline via SSL 128-bit encryption however because of the way the form was embedded in our site the URL did not change nor did the https. However everything we do with Regonline is SSL. Sorry for the confusion.

No donation is mandatory and the screen will allow you to pass without any amount.

It wasn't mandatory. I left it zero because I want to wait till the event, in hopes my economy has rebounded by then. This leaves me with potential for a better donation.

It wasn't mandatory. If you put a zero in the field, it won't accept it, but if you just leave the field blank, it goes through with no donation.

I saw no such donation. Maybe it was specific to you?

Medallions are exempt.
WN fliers have to pay the extra fee.

I'm in! I got hung up a little when I tried to undo an "add another person", but eventually got it sorted.
