Wow this has been crazy. Thank you all for participating and enjoying yourselves, without everyone's support this would have never taken off like it did. More directly I'd like to thank the assistance of Pure Buttons, lordthanda, Moe Fwacky, jonxp, Big Red, the rest of the excellent Enforcers, whoever the hell actually built the case, Recruit, and the Sheraton Security, We've learned a lot this year on how to better organize this for the next coming PAX, and I hope to see everyone playing again. I have several special ideas floating in my head that I'm going to work on during the next year.

    For the sake of sanity in this thread, and to keep it down to less than 100 pages, I suggest we not post next year's button designs yet :(

    They'll just get lost in the pruning that will happen before the boards explode next year.

    It will more than likely hit 100 even without the posting of next year's stuff.

    I am not ordering more than 100. It was already $9 shipping for that bunch, and lots and lots of people only have 50 buttons so it is entirely possible I won't be able to get every button anyway. As long as I have traded most of my buttons, I'll be happy.

    I thought long and hard (kekeke) over the weekend, and I think I'm going to stay with 50. Why? Because I don't know where I'm going to store 100 effing pins after PAX. I don't even know where I am putting 50... or what I'll actually DO with them.

    Also, do I only get on the "Invested" list when I recieve my buttons? Cause I totally ordered them 2 days ago.

    If you're willing to pay increased shipping, http://www.wackybuttons.com/turnaround.htm wackybuttons looks like it can still get buttons out in time. I'll probably end up using them.

    It's still cheaper to use Purebuttons with a rush on the order than it is to use those guys... Purebuttons=Pure win

    So, to re-cap whats been said before. As we keep having to do :P

    INVESTED is ONLY for people who have RECEIVED BUTTONS

    HAVE DESIGN is for people who have come up with a design, but not necessarily ordered buttons.

    To expound upon that, because I keep getting asked, If you have a design, for god sake post it. Just because you ordered them and added yourself to the google doc list you don't automatically get moved to the invested list, you need to post a picture. We are not looking for people to tell us how much they are participating, we are looking for people to show us. It's what brings us socially together.
