I just received an email saying congrats on winning a Meet and Greet for Friday's night show. Only to log into ec.com and see that my meet and greet request was denied!!! Someone with MCN needs to explain this to me!!!

Since June 5th 2006
I had signed up for a meet and greet in Delaware-and then my profile said I had not registered for one! I most certainly did! Also, the meet and greet button is there for the Tempe show, but when i try to request a m&g it goes to the preorder page and says not authorized...why is the m&g button there??? Help someone please, I wanted to request one for a show in AZ while I was there on vacation. I was hoping to get lucky this time!
A fellow Choir member and I were awarded M&G's for July 8th, and never got a second email back saying they had screwed up, so we figured we were good. When we got there though, we found out it had been a mistake and there were no passes waiting for us, so even if you think you're safe you may want to check it out. Just a heads up.
They keep screwing up then just giving people meet and greets (which they definitely deserve!) but then that screws everyone else over too. They better stop screwing up so bad..
I would be extremely upset too. I really hope all this gets fixed for you and everyone else. I'm pulling for ya!
Here is MCN's response
We apologize for the confusion with the M&G letters regarding this Friday's show. The M&G for this Friday is currently full. However, we'd like to offer you a M&G to the show of your choice. Please email us here at email@example.com at least two weeks in advance of the show you will be attending so we can make sure you are on the list! Also, please make sure the show you select has the "Request Meet & Greet" button next to it.
The Church Choir members listed below will also be receiving an email from us within the next hour. Thank you for your help with this situation!
As always, please feel free to email us if you ever have any questions or issues and we will do our best to get back to you quickly!
Still not happy with that. I'm sorry, but the Meet and Greet request was for Milwaukee. I have been trying for a few months now to get Eric to sign these boots Jill bought me for the wedding just to make these even more special. There is no shows between now and Sept. 9th that I can make... So I guess these boots wont be signed for the big day!!
Both my show last week and my show next week did not even offer m&g opportunities - but I'm excited to just be going to Church again...in CehNehDeh!!!!!! :)
So is that the solution to this too? I haven't emailed them yet...
With all the "guaranteed M&G at a future show"s they are passing out, the rest of us are screwed for ever having a shot at a M&G .... :(
Thank you for working on this :) Much appreciated!
I think we just got screwed.
But on a diffent note.
I also got both Emails. One saying "I was one of the Lucky one" and the next Email stating I was not "One of the choosen few".
P.S. I printed it out any way.
Got the same 2 e-mails. What the hey?
I commented on your facebook post Aaron. When I tried to re-request a m&g for the August 26th show in CB, it told me I wasn't authorized! I emailed MCN and today, I got an email back saying that they'd fixed it...and sure enough, I was able to!
I know it's not the same issue that you're dealing with, but...they ARE making an effort to fix things. I hope it works out for you and you DO get your M&G
i got the same two emails. i'm gonna print it and take it with, that's for sure....
I also received the same two emails, hopefully we figure this out. I'm hoping it has to do with requesting through both the old and new boards. Our first emails better be honored...
WTH? That's insane! :(
If anyone else had this issue please post in here. I have contacted MCN on this issue both via Craig Dunn, Facebook and there support email!!!
Here are my two emails...

Hello AARON, Thank you for applying for the Meet and Greet at the Milwaukee, WI show. The winners are chosen on a lottery random basis and unfortunately your entry was not selected for this show. We encourage you to apply for a Meet and Greet at a future show. Have a good time at the show and be sure to come back to the website and comment on the show to let us know what a great time you had! Thanks for being a member!
What said you were denied - the email or your account on here?
MCN is f*ing this up ... I agree, somebody needs to explain it - and more than just with a "sorry, but that's the way it is" bullshit.
Hey Aaron, good to see ya on the boards! I think you'll be fine if you take that email with you to the show. I've seen people get in to the M&G the last 2 shows i went to.
I have now spoke with 7 people that have got the same emails? Someone needs to explain why?
