General Discussion / Registration Issue When Registering New Slam
« Last post by HoustonRH7 on July 29, 2014, 10:00:22 AM »
So, I've been trying to register a new slam through the page, and every time I do I get an error message of some kind of error page. Usually it's the "ERROR 500 - INTERNAL SERVER ERROR" page, though occasionally it will just pop up with a single line of text about an invalid time-out or something like that. I've tried this about 4 times so far, and I'm a bit worried to keep trying in case the site decides to charge my card every time I submit the form.

Is there a way to check and see if the page has charged my card already, and the info went through? I'm assuming it didn't, since I didn't get a confirmation e-mail, but again, I'd rather not suddenly see 4 charges for registration on my card... is there a way I could do this over the phone?

The registration, by the way, was under the name "Fayetteville Word Wars".

There are only 6 spots remaining in NUPIC. 

Can you feel the fire BABY! Its HOT.......SUN!

The NUPIC love is crazy from our SLAMFAM and I have to say thank you (to you all) for keeping "our thing", this NUPIC event as love-filled as it has been for 6 years now.  The love is reciprocal and none of this would be possible without us all.  Passion, People and Poetry baby: that's where NUPIC lives.
