Comic-Con International encourages fans to #BeTheCheerio during maddening online registration

As promised, the online floodgates opened this morning to get tickets to Comic-Con International in San Diego. And while the past several years have often seen anger-inducing hoops to winning a chance at attending America’s biggest pop culture event pop up, the show seems to be locked in to a workable — if still flooded — system for its 2015 outing.

With the show’s Open Online Registration window being the chief way to gain access to Comic-Con one day at a time, hopeful attendees are refreshing browser windows loaded to the EPIC Registration page and checking both the SDCC Twitter account and the #SDCCOOR hashtag.

But amidst the typical outcry over frustrating load times and missed opportunities, many have also picked up the banner of the positive accentuating hashtag #BeTheCheerio. Seemingly originating from SDCC blogger An Englishman In San Diego, the phrase is meant to keep hopeful attendees’ eyes focused on the prize. As you wait to see if you made it in, check out some of our favorite Twitter responses to this year’s madness below the jump.

[Update: As we note below, the show sold out of badges in one hour, besting the previous year’s record by nearly 30 minutes.]

Update: And literally one hour after the Open Online Registration began, Comic-Con 2015 has sold out. Congrats to those who made it.
