    If you'd like, I can make an east 2012 omeganaut twitter list (unless you have some mass omeganaut list you'd prefer to add to) on the pax community twitter.

    That would be awesome, I can't make one that includes myself (I think). Just one for this year's would be fine. There is no master omeganaut list (that I know of), although that seems like an awesome idea.

    Yeah, it's that restriction that prompted the pax community twitter... that and multiple people have access to it so it's not just one person.

    the runner(s) up are automatically entered into the next year's omegathon. BaconSandwich has been part of the 2nd place team two years in a row now.

    I would be a terrible Omeganaut and do not wish to be one, but out of curiosity, do they only select members from the USA? I would imagine so due to certain legal reasons. International contests and the Province of Quebec, for example, don't mix well.

    I'm on the PAX Community DVD list, but yeah, for the record, I'm Themiscyra on Twitter as well.

    There have been Canadian Omeganauts. I'm not sure of the rules for this year, but it's happened in the past.

    did you accept? are you one of the two unidentified people from twitter?

    The Omegathon is an exclusive games tournament at PAX with the grand prize being a trip to Germany for a huge game con there.

    I accepted. Twitter wasn't brought up during the conversation. I am on twitter (same as forum name here) @evan140

    Why do you want twitter?

  • PhantomjestPhantomjest Registered User
    Yes, my twitter name is also Phantomjest.

  • zerzhulzerzhul Registered User, Moderator mod
    There's a twitter list of the PAX East 2012 Omeganauts being kept by the community.

    Congrats to both of you! You are now part of an extremely exclusive group.
