The EuroPython website supports buying tickets for other people
(friends, colleagues, etc.). As a result, it is necessary to assign
the tickets you buy to either yourself or someone else. The assignment
process is explained below.

Please tell us your preferences

The reason we’re interested in you applying this configuration as soon
as possible, is that the tickets include a number of preferences which
we need to know about in order to properly prepare the conference.

When assigning tickets you will fill some fields, telling us your
t-shirt size and cut (women or men style) and your diet
preferences. If you don’t provide this information, we cannot assure
we’ll have the right t-shirt available for you. Likewise, if you are
vegetarian, it is important to mark this in the preferences, so that
we can order enough vegetarian food.

How to assign tickets to attendees

First you need to log in and go to your profile and, if you already
bought your tickets, you will see something similar to this. Click on
"View your tickets".

After you have navigated to the tickets, we need you to assign the
ticket: simply hover over the ticket and you will see two
options. Please select, if the ticket is for you or for someone else.

Remember: Before assigning the ticket the other persons, these must be
registered on the website. Otherwise, the assignment won’t work.

If you have assigned the tickets to someone else, please let them
know. The system will send out automatic emails, but it’s safer to
send a separate email so that the information doesn’t get lost in a
spam filter.

How to edit the fields of the tickets

After assigning the ticket, each attendee will need to fill out the
ticket preferences using his/her profile page (don’t forget to click
save to store the settings).

Some additional help for the preference form:

 * Tagline: This line will appear after you name. Be original!

 * Diet: Omnivorous, Vegetarian or Other (we’ll try to provide food
   for other diets as well)

 * Python experience: Whats your experience level with Python? You can
   also enter “no comment”, if you prefer not to make this information

 * Dates: Which days do you plan to attend. This is not binding in any
   way, it just helps us to better prepare for the conference.

With gravitational regards,
