    my badge arrived yesterday in California. It ran off to commune with the nearby mountain lions. I'm not sure how to proceed.

    I'm a little concerned that everyone supposedly has numbers on their badge, and mine doesn't (other than the year). Am I missing something?

    I got my badges yesterday, and I have a question. Do they hand out lanyards at East like they do at Prime? Or should I just bring my own?

    They did last year, so I'm assuming they will this year too!

    No, that was last year.

    They give out lanyards every year with your bag when you get to the con. They're not super high quality so if you have something nice like a lanyard from Liger (http://knittedsteel.storenvy.com/) you might as well bring it.

    Thanks. I like the black lanyard I got from Prime last year, so I may just bring that.

    My 6 one day badges arrived yesterday (I live in NH FYI). One of the the things in the top corner got pretty scratched up in shipping, so I hope I do not have any troubles with it.

    this happened to my bf's badge as well. he emailed them about it; i'll report back when they respond.

    Same is true of one of our badges -- I'm interested in the response.

    Mine as well. I think it's safe to say, given the number of us reporting this, that there's no way they can have a problem with it.

    Out of my group, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York people got theirs early in the week, but Maryland friends hadn't yet as of yesterday...

    First.. all this talk of badges makes me sad since I have to wait until I get there to pick it up *Shakes fist at the completely reasonable Media badge pickup policy*

    And.. all this talk of bobcats.. and badges.. I cannot get this scene from UHF out of my head:
    Badgers?

    I have not yet gotten my badge, though it has to go through the campus mail at University at Buffalo, when should I consider it lost in the mail and email them, Thursday? Friday?

    I didn’t receive my PAX Badges in the Mail!! What do I do?
    If you live outside of the US, or you purchased your pass after the cut off date for badges to be mailed, you will need to pick up your badge at Will Call using your paper ticket with the Bar Code on it AND a valid piece of photo ID.

    If your badge really is lost in the mail, email pax_questions@paxsite.com

    I am aware of that, I just need to know when I can truly consider it "Lost in the mail"

    Ridley, I'd say early next week OR shortly before you leave for Boston would be a good time to email them.

    response received! from pax_questions:
    In regards to the sticker smudge. We've been made aware that in rare instances the ink can scrape off of the badge hologram during transit. Don't worry, our enforcers were instructed that this might be the case on some badges and there are actually a few other ways to verify the authenticity of a badge so you should have no trouble getting in and no one is going to stop you or anything over the holo smudge.

    Got my badge today. I officially went into hype overdrive. PAX is now just a little over a week away and all the pieces are falling into place. All that is left is to pack.

    My bobcat arrived! However all she does is curl up next to me and attack my hand when I rub her belly.

    Can be found on: Eastward Bound to Boston

    Well duh, that's one of the ways they can tell if it's official! Stop giving this info away to bobcat counterfeiters!

    I'm wondering what the counterfeit bobcats will look like. I'm guessing something like a water melon with fir stuck to it.

  • LollerskateDJLollerskateDJ Registered User
    I live in Kentucky, I moved shortly before the badges were mailed out, I did the whole change of address thing, still haven't gotten mine. I'll be leaving this Friday for MA so if I don't get it by then, will they still let me pick mine up at will call with ID even if it was already mailed out.

    That depends on what the pony answers to. If its 'Liono' you may be ok. Otherwise you may have trouble getting in. You could always ride into the queue room and see what the enforcers do.

  • NullzoneNullzone Registered User regular
    We'd probably let you in as long as we get to ride it first :D

  • rubykavalierrubykavalier pink is the new bacon Registered User regular
    Honestly his belly's like 3 inches from the ground; if you tried to ride him your knees would be dragging. But I will let you cuddle him.

    And no, I haven't tried Liono, but he responds well to Chauncy Winthrop McWorthington the Third.

    Question. I got two 3 day passes, but don't need them because we're in a panel and are getting panelist badges, what do?

    Give them to some friends?

    Due to new rules as of Prime 2011, we are no longer able to discuss non-official methods of badges changing hands on these forums.

    Got my passes on time like a week ago. Gotta say Twitter isn't shying away from posting badge pics for the frauders but the new badges got that holo which makes them super effective! Although I feel like Kraulik could add a cartoon character(s) to the badge to sort of make it collectible too much red!

    The same thing happened to me, and it turns out they went to my old address even though I changed it a few weeks before they mailed out. Hopefully they turn up for you soon!

    Re: the scratched-up-section-of-the-badge issue: Don't worry! Any scratches on the logo there don't even kill the functionality of that part of the badge, let alone the entire thing. It's in hand. :)
