I entered about 0:40 last night and email then took about 15 mins to get the email through. Now non nocturnal people are applying I guess there will be a rush and the network will be very busy.
If anyone thinks there is a problem my confirmation email shows the VLM office number as
0207 902 0200
Good luck to all
Sounds like it's not a good idea to reapply (re Andrew Edwards 20). I quote from the confirmation email:
"Please don't enter the ballot more than once as this could result in all your entries being cancelled."
If you got the page with the reference number (and wrote it down hopefully) you ought to be ok.
Having gone through the fiasco that was the Olympic ticket application and having read comments from past years about the VLM process, it seems the servers are faring slightly better this year.
I woke up at 5:30 (not sure why) blearily looked at Twitter on my phone and saw people had applied so fired up the laptop and did so myself. It will be my first if I'm successful, but if not I'll do another one anyway, injuries permitting.
I think if you've got a confirmation number you're OK
Entered at about 10.45, still no email 3 hours later. My confirmation number is over 200,000, does that mean there were over 200,000 entries at that point? The website is still saying entry is open, so it looks like the limit is way above 125,000. Maybe it includes multiple entries that have been cancelled?
Yes I'm becoming aware of this Sussex, new to this mysterious world.
gemgemx - I concur.
Got my confirmation number so don't suppose it really matters, just got the long wait till October now.
