I posted about this in an earler thread, but I was thinking that as a new fledgeling con, PAX East is going to possibly be getting a lot of not-so-experienced attendees. So, I decided that I wanted to get together a guide for people to use for PAX East as a reference. Then, someone on another forum I frequent said they made one for PAX Prime. Essentially it was an amended version of the booklets PAX makes for the official events so that it includes all of the info on the unofficial events.
In the end, it would really be a free resource for people to print out a PDF of or load onto an iPhone or Palm Pilot.
So I am proposing this to everyone going to PAX East: if you want to help create the PAX East Bible, for lack of a better term, please post in here that you want to help. Later, when it is getting finalized, we'll post the file here or give out information on how to get one for FREE.
What we are looking for is information on the following:
- unofficial get-togethers
- Boston information (PAX version of Zagat, Frommers, etc)
- tips and tricks from other Con-goers
- supply list
Again, if you want to help out, post here! (To the admins and planners: if you have any input on anything, please help us! We love what you guys are doing!)
A) I really should find an avatar for this board. I'm starting to realize that I'm not standing out on here. :P
I'm speechless you guys! This idea took off so quickly, and I'm really happy to see that people want to help out with the production of this. I think we may have a great start. Now, anyone who has posted something in this thread, please email me
so that we can work out some sort of plan so that this becomes more of a tangible thing than a lenghty message board post.
So I noticed that we have a lot of information here, but I haven't really gotten much feedback as for people to help me compile and edit the information we get, as well as contributors who want to help with certain sections. So I am gong to ask again, PLEASE MESSAGE ME ON THE FORUM if you are willing to help. I will be posting the final section list of topics in a few days.
By the way, I just found ot that Office has a plug-in for creating in PDF format (fail on me), but that means that I'm one more step towards it all. Happy Holidays!
