When we release spaces at an event to you, we give you a time limit in which to purchase the ticket(s).
If there's over 30 days until the event, you are given two days from when the email is sent to complete your purchase. If there is between 15 and 30 days until the event, you'll receive a day and a half. If there is less than 14 days until the event, the time limit is 24 hours.
We've implemented this as we feel it is fairer to dancers to be given longer if there's a greater amount of time until the event; balanced against the organiser's need to sell as many remaining spaces as possible as the event approaches.
The exception is the final 48 hours until the event. At this point there's no time to release spaces to the wait list one-by-one, particularly as people on the wait-list may no longer be planning to attend. If there are last minute sign ups, DanceCloud notifies batches of people (in the order they are on the wait-list) that spaces are available and they are sold on a first-come, first-served basis.
