    Typically I try to read every post on a thread before I reply. I didn't even bother with this one.

    My OCD is too seveer to even try that. I wouldn't have been able to go long before breaking down and reading every single post. I can't even finish an RPG without reading EVERY line of text there. It really becomes a pain in games like Oblivion when I try find every line of text before moving to the next town.

    The hardest button to button... and have shipped

    I’d definitely like to participate in the Button Exchange but I’m up here in Canada and shipping wouldn’t make it in time. Stuff shipped to Canada is deconstructed into its atoms and then in a time consuming process put back together again (or so I assume). Would I be able to have them shipped to someone in the US?

    I finally ordered mine today, since I kept putting it off and realized today was the last day...

    I'm running low on cash, so I only ordered 50. I guess that's okay, there's always next year. :P

    No one here knows me (I just registered today), but as someone said earlier "What better way to met people", so.. I just bought my buttons. Here's hoping they arrive in time.

    My button design is going to be:

    Aww, frack. Uh... OK, revising things a bit on the link to my image, having not known that freehostia would do that. Let's try a non-direct-link version.

    For the checklist spreadsheet thing, uh... I gave the same link as the one in here that didn't work. So... If that doesn't work right, this one should be foolproof. (fingers crossed...)

    Order is in! This is going to be so awesome, even though I haven't met any of you (to my knowledge...).

    The person keeping up with the spreadsheet list has said that we are over 75 at this point and approaching 100. That's PARTICIPANTS not BUTTONS (which is even higher thanks to bonus buttons). To make sure you aren't being that jerk who is asking for buttons with nothing to give back(;-)) I recommend ordering 100.

    I used the 1.5" template that they provided and just erased all the template lines when I had mine centered and fixed it up a bit. Everything is set to fit into the dotted circle portion of the template, so I hope it's big enough...

    I ordered my buttons, but there was an error when I submitted. It was billed to my credit card, so I think my order is in before the deadline...but I didn't get a confirmation or anything.
    E-mail PureButtons.com at info@purebuttons.com, tell them the name you gave them and ask for a receipt or confirmation that your order went through. It'll leave you less worried about if it went through or not.

    I hear ya, I had terrible OCD for a long time. I'd do the same stuff, read every line, reread some, keep up with threads I didn't even care about. The most helpful thing is not giving into the urges. Giving into them just makes it worse, once you resist enough(as annoying as it is), you should eventually find it easier to deal with. Also, medication can help. (I did both medication and resisting) I'm free ^^

    you can have em shipped to me if no one else is offering, but i'm in minnesota and it seemed to take awhile for my buttons to get to me, although since it is 20 days away, i'd guess there is a enough time.

    Nikon D40. I love it, and it's so awesome and useful, but sadly, it's not mine. It's a pricey item- I doubt I could afford one easily, what with being a dirt-poor college student.

    Refreshed OP up. Holy crap guys, by on my list (not the google doc one) we have about 130 participants. That is a conservative guesstimate as the last update proved that we have people who have received buttons, but are just now stating their intention to play and also we have people who have supposedly ordered, but are not posting any pictures at all.

    Keep the pics coming guys.

    Wow, I didn't count my badges yet, hopefully I have got lots more than 100 (I ordered 100, but most people seem to get quite a few more than the order amount)

    So Moe says we will need to make a new thread soon out of tradition. I say I want a 3000 GET. What's the thoughts from the buttoneers? Is Moe capable of being persuaded?

    What? No.

    Threads are capped at 100 pages. After that the thread gets locked. There's no persuading, that's just how it is.

    Just change your settings to show 1 post per page. Voila!

    There is actually a good technical reason for it, (whether the mods are aware of it or not) that involves the way pagination is handled. I won't go in to it here, but 100 pages is a reasonable spot for a new thread.
