Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions
. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum
. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

But if we're going to go by the rule of "They need to be knowledgable about the product", what's stopping companies from hiring booth babes and just have them memorize some paragraph long spiel about the game they're promoting?
It's very simple. You talk to them like a human being and determine what they know about it, feel about it, and why they're passionate about it. That's how the person acts that most people at PAX want to be.
That is why this entire incident makes me sad, it's very UNPAX. It's people ignoring Wheaton's Law. If you can't talk to people and have a conversation, it's not PAX. Tattling on naughty shorts, calling people hypocrites, calling down shame on passionate people doing things in innocence, those are things that make me sad.
