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!

PAX 2008 Button Exchange! I'm making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS.

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.

    Same, and only 49 other people have a chance to get them from me... so that makes it hard for the people that want all of them ;_;

    YOU GUYS ARE MAKING ME FEEL GUILTY! NOW I'M TEMPTED TO BUY MORE! ;_;

    As mentioned in the last few pages or so in the other thread, once the List is completed; highlight or emphasize the buttons you want more and set those aside.

    When I saw the Original Thread locked I was all like "NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!" And yes, I did the epic fists-shaking-in-the-air thing too. But then I saw the link to this thread, I was all "Oh! Okie!"

    And, since I failed to mention this really early this morning, don't worry Costa, you, Strangemusic, and of course Lyanth herself are all on my special LHH list.

    Also. Just now realised that I had Soups name and stuff so I'm gonna fill out the form for him. If he is repeated on there, Thanda, my bad.

    Yay, Im special :D Oh and you can call me Lennon... or LT

    I totally procrastinated on getting my buttons, I didn't order any. But I think I'll try staples or something, I do want to get in on this.

    I think moe said that in the spirit of spiritedness or something he'd extended the registration to the tenth. Also, depending on where you live, you may still be able to get the buttons in time. I live in the Seattle area, and I got mine in just under ten days, no rush shipping or anything.

    So I apologize for the lack of an update, I have received my buttons, as stated by Steve. Unfortunately I do not have access to a digital camera at the moment and thus am unable to upload a pic of the blighters.

    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

    I never bothered to take a photo of the buttons, but I have about a hundred to pass around... Odd though somthing like 96. Purebuttons must have kept a few to admire their awesomeness... I seriously wonder if they do keep a few to look at now and again, especially with everybodys awesome pins.

    I hope we do it again! I didn't get to make my pin this year because of time constraints so I had a buddy help me out.

    Extra buttons in the process of ordering. Given that the turnaround time has gone down to 9-10 days, I am thinking I could get these in time. Here are the designs. I want to get them in 1.25 inch size.

    Both of them are Doctor Who-ish.

    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.
