Registration is fine ... its just not displaying all the early names that registered. (based on payment method) Its not a 'huge' glitch, certainly not a reason to not register.

I agree but when someone isn't certain about making it to the fest or not and he sees LOADS of people registred, it can make him/her to register.

Also... if people see that the registration managing is buggy and take so long to get right, it gives the message that the Fest organising is not taken seriously.

Those words aren't what I think for sure. I know the organisers have tons of work to do and I don't want to say that they aren't doing their "jobs" but it's just the impression that it could give IMO.

BTW Keep Up the Good Work folks and see you there

Don't know where to post this so I'll try here. I registered for the fest (or so I thought) and paid via paypal on the 20th of July. However, when I log in to my account it still shows my purchase as being in the cart and not yet paid for. I have the paypal receipt, but I don't see any contact info on the registration page for assistance in this matter.

The problem is the integration between OSCommerce (the registration site) and Paypal/google checkout. Paypal users have to follow strict directions and after you submit your order to paypal it requires the user to click a link which in turn updates the OSCommerce site.
Google checkout is not without its own quirks, if a user does not create an account in the system google checkout is not able to link an order with an account and in turn the OSCommerce site is not updated.
I have been manually linking Google checkout orders with accounts and Paypal orders with accounts. The paypal linking is not as straightforward as paypal doesn't store a record of what was ordered.
If I was able to fix the problems I would, its not that simple. I think the older version of OSCommerce is hindering the effort and switching midstream (either upgrading or different cart) isn't a good solution either.

Please if anyone has problems contact me here, via PM or directly tim @ cincitdi.com

FYI I will be contacting everyone who has paid but is not showing on the list. It looks like those orders are in limbo and I need to recreate them. If you want to get your order up asap can you email or pm me the items you had in your cart?

Thanks!
