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!

Giving something back to the PA forumites

As a relative newcomer to these forums I've been pleasantly surprised how generally welcoming it is. If anything it was the major contributor in me helping VThornheart out in his quest to attend PAX this year by working on his video entry for Bioware's Minion competition.

In recognition of this I have decided to make a badge that can be hung from the PAX pass you'll be getting at the event. I've already made one for the people that are coming to the event from foreign climes and seeing the reaction that has got from those that do reside in the US and not wanting to have them feel left out I am now working on a similar badge for them also.

The pics of what I have created thus far can be seen by clicking on the spoiler buttons below:

Back

Anyone who frequents these forums is eligable to get one of these badges. I will however have a limited supply of them so they will be handed out on a first come - first serve basis.

Thoughts and suggestions for improving what I have so far come up with would be appreciated.

    I can haz badge?

    I was driving some out-of-towner friends around, and I kept complaining about being blinded. They responded with "You see, where we come from, people tend to wear Sunglasses." I retorted with a simple "You people tend to have sun."

    I'll take one. The only suggestion I have is to remove /index.php from the URL as it is unnecessary and you can then make the URL BIGGAR :)

    agreed, the /index.php is not needed, and i would also definitely want one as well!

    It might also help forumers seek each other out better for the button collecting, imo.

    Oh, yeah, I still have to read that massive button thread to see what it's all about... Sounded fun when I skimmed it.

    Thanks for the positive responses. The names on the card will be way more than what I have so far done. The issue is who to put on there. The most active is what I'm looking for. The whole names thing will become almost a texture.

    The offer of funding is generous but not necessary. I'm not planning to make that many to add a bit of kudos in getting one.

    I'll post a revised version soon. Keep your eyes peeled.

    I will take one, please. It kinda reminds me of a press badge. Maybe I will put it on an old-timey hat and start asking people "What's the scoop?!" in an old-timey way.

    why not have a space for anyone who gets one to put their handle on it, instead of selecting a bunch of names? Enforcer badges are required to have handles on them, and since there's no spot on the PAX badge itself, maybe this would be a good feature/function?

    [Enforcers] are the fucking best.
