    Red, do Press and Exhibitors have access to the BYOC? I've had a couple of requests to view the casemod.

    Tell them to ask security at the door, they can be escorted in.


    Thank you, sir!

    Is printing your barcode a must? Or can I pull it up on my smartphone for scanning?

    Wont be able to scan it off of your phone. Printing out the barcode will be the quickest way for everyone.

    We can look you up manually though... but if theres a line of people who do have barcodes we will take care of them first :P

    There will be an airwall separating the two areas... but the small expo space on 6th floor will be right around the corner from BYOC

    Yes, there will be a people-less area we can put you in, it's called the closet. Don't worry, though, we'll also give you a pair of nunchucks to play with while you're in there.

    No, no. The air wall is created by huge fans. So we can float around and fly!

    The queue room should be one big bouncy castle. That'd be the most entertaining line-game ever.

    Next year BYOC will be replaced with BYOBC. The weekend will culminate in a Bouncy Castle Siege Warfare tournament.

    BigRed - I'll see you at the reg desk on Thursday around 3pm to pick up my badge. Will you have your buttons ready for trade? If so I'll bring mine over to trade with you then. :)

    Question. The PAX main site says of will call:
    For those picking up badges on-site, please note our will-call booth is located on the 1st floor of the convention center this year, and will be available between 2:00pm and 8:00pm on Thursday

    Is this the 1st floor of the convention center where BYOC will call will be held as well?

    I ask because last year BYOC will call on Thursday was in the lobby of the Hilton or something weird like that...

    There is only one will call.

    Is the email with the bar code from esportsea.com? Because I got that email and it's the same page I get when I go to the Lanfest site and click on "Review Confirmation Email". Because if it is you might want to send out a second email because BYOC doesn't appear anywhere in the email. At first I thought it was just an email for the regular PAX sign-up not BYOC. Here's the full text of it:
    From: xxxxxxxxxxxx@easportsea.com
    Subject: PAX Prime 2011 Confirmation

    You have successfully completed your payment for the PAX Prime 2011 event, set to take place August 26 - 28 in Seattle, WA!

    Be sure to bring the printed version of this email with you to the event as your unique bar code will be used to expedite your registration. In the event you cannot view your bar code in this email, you can find also find it on your "My Registration" page located here.

    Remember, the address for the event is:
    Washington State Convention Center
    800 Convention Pl
    Seattle, WA


    If you have any questions relating to the website or registration process please, open a support ticket.

    Regards,
    PAX Prime 2011 Staff

    And yes it does include a barcode.

    Yup, that's the one you will need to get your BYOC badge and what-not.

  • BigRedBigRed Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    If it does get lost in the Internet we can look you up manually, it just takes a lot longer.

    <MoeFwacky> besides, BigRed-Worky is right
  • contrefaitcontrefait Registered User regular
    You can also go to the Lanfest website and login again and get the barcode to print out.

    ALRIGHTY

    BYOC Reg is now closed for 2011. Group seating is now closed as well (Since ill be busy with various things leading up to PAX...). I have 1 pending group seat request to take care of but no more new ones will be accepted at this point.

    See you guys in 6 Days!

    Three questions for you BigRed:

    1. Where/when is the Thursday will-call?
    2. Can we modify existing group seating?
    3. If we have old barcode stickers and whatnot on our equipment from previous PAXes, do we have to take them off?

    Thanks!

    Hi Red-

    I followed your directions and sent an email to the address that said "if you haven't received a barcoded email from lanfest, let us know". I'm looking for 2 barcoded emails (because I have two registrations) and I only received one.

    Thanks! Super stoked.
