    So it was brought to my attention that I was on the back of the badge. Granted, I didn't sign up to get one and I didn't bother kropotkin when I saw him at the gaming night last night. As it turns out as well, I'm sitting right behind MelesMeles and kropotkin.

    Ah well. Perhaps I'll grab one next East.

    Hmm! Wonder who pointed that out to ya??? ;) YOu can still pick one up at the BYOC office thingy i believe!!!

    Also, thought itd be funny to share that... A. I have seen barely any of you people around!!! B. People think i am somehow involved in PAX because my badge is so huge, its phenomenal having people come up to me and say "Hey, what does that badge do?" to which i respond, "Bestow awesomeness unto the wielder."

    Thank you so much for putting the badge together kropotkin; and it was nice meeting you!

    I've been wearing mine with my trading card in the case and the 3 day pass on the back. Only traded 2 cards today :(

    I am wearing it.

    I also have my hat on with my cards in my hat.

    Whenever I spot a person with cards I've been yelling "CARD!" and holding one out toward them forcefully.

    I grabbed my badge on Friday, but nobody said anything about it except my non-forum friends who were with me.

    It looked absolutely amazing though, even better in person than the images in this thread.

    it looked really good and i heard about a meet up on sunday but could not attend i had work on monday and had to get home

    I saw about a half dozen to a dozen people with the forum badges but I didn't go looking at everyone to see.
    When I went and picked it up on Friday the guy at the booth handing them out ended up asking me all the questions on the list. lol. I got them right obviously.
    While I was walking around I did get a few wondering eyes looking at the badge and a handful asking me what it was. You should put VIP on it next time and really throw people through a loop.

    got a glimpse of a few here and there(shoulda said hello but didn't, I'm an idiot for that), but the most notable ones where those worn during the 2nd Q&A(didn't attend the first so can't speak for that) and Themiscyra's while she and Bacon Sandwich were being thoroughly awesome Omeganauts. But then being projected onto such large screens will make just about anything pop.

    however now that i think about it i've realised there was a distinct lack of the community coat or arms t-shirts. the only one i say was being worn by Kropotkin as he handed out the badges on Thursday night. a lil bit saddened by that and am now wishing i'd invested in one to help advertise the community. i may not post much or throw myself into the community events(though i really should do both), but this section of the forums and the people who post here are an incredible large part of what makes PAX so special and the more people that know about it the better both the board and PAX will be.

    so to everyone that wore their badge, to everyone that signs up because they saw and asked about them, and especially to Kropotkin for putting in the time, effort and cost of designing, making and distributing(and the same to the others that helped with this) them i've got to give a huge Thank You and Well Done!!!

    In case you haven't noticed, no I can't spell. I'm not sorry.

    didn't get my badge until saturday, due to feeling kind of overwhelmed all day friday, but i was really excited to get it. answered two questions correctly and claimed my prize. i wish i'd chatted with more forumers than i did (anxiety sometimes gets the best of me), but i kept my eyes out for badge-wearers and felt a sense of pride and camaraderie whenever i spotted one. deepest thanks to kropotkin for getting this together for all of us, and to forumers for just being awesome!

    can totally relate to this. last year was my first ever con never mind my first PAX and between the keynote and then walking onto the expo floor i was in awe for most or the week end(still managed to pick up my badge ont he friday last year though:P).

    as for the anxiety, well yeah, you'd think we'd all be able to get over that for at least 3 days but no. :( still there's always next year. more badges, more time to post on the forums, another solo/lonely PAX thread :P. anything that helps.

    I will say I wasn't asked any questions. They asked if my name was on the back and I said "Yeah" and they found it and gave me the badge... I feel like a cheated the system.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words on the badges. I personally never got approached by anyone, but I did my best to call out people with them on. Some looked at me strangely and thought me a little odd for pointing out they had one, even after I told them I had created them. Others demonstrated less social ineptitude by not only thanking me for creating them, but also asked me to sign them too. After 4 years of doing these badges, it was the very first time someone actually requested the author's signature on them; I was touched.

    Thanks again for the kind words and I will be designing PAX Prime badge very soon. Watch for the thread everyone!

    that's all i was asked last year, this year it was simply ' are any or you on the forum?' to the group if was sitting with at the time.

    am not really complaining since as i said the more badges out there the better, but yeah it does seem a lil cheap after you take the time to check(and double check) the questions so you don't mess up at the last second.

    I think that was the setup, if your name was on it you didn't have to answer questions. I was asked if I was on it and when I said no, I got the questions.

    If you attended the Pre PAX gaming event, then you got the badge as I was handing them out. You only have to ask questions at the BYOC desk, as it could be anyone that approaches for a badge and not be on the forums. The questions only act as a gate-keeper to non-forum folk looking for some swag :shock:

    I got mine on Friday and wore it each day behind my 3 day pass. Just want to say to Kropotkin you did an amazing job on it and it looked great to finally see the final product and now own it. I didn't see anyone else wearing them so I was a little disappointed by that might have been easier to talk to people if I knew they were forum people but there is always next PAX East.

    Had a couple people ask about it so that was kind of cool told them about it/about the forums.

    Same for me when I went to the BYOC desk. They asked if my name was on the back, what it was and then I got it. Sort of wanted to demonstrate my forum knowledge by answering the questions.
