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.

    We have created an exclusive button for the 2nd annual pre-pax drunkard extravaganza event.

    Listen. And understand. That Misterioso is out there. He can't be bargained with. He can't be reasoned with. He doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And he absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead..drunk.

    Whoever is running the spreadsheet, please talk to me, I'd like to try setting up a web-based check off list for mobile devices and people who just prefer it that way.

    I updated my spreadsheet info with all my buttons. Speaking of, why hasn't anyone done a "Receive Bacon" button?

    I finally ordered my buttons the other day! Take me off the all talk list, for they are ordered and the form has been filled out. Sadly, it ended up being a rush job with an image editor I've never used, so this was the best I could manage.

    I'd like to take a moment to recognize the hard work and excellent job organizing this and setting up everything. RedHalo took more time than anyone should have making that OP, even if he just copied and pasted it. And Fwacky moderating 96 pages of posts about buttons (mostly). That takes talent and effort. You guys rock!

    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.

    Well this is certainly gorgeousness and gourgeousity made flesh. Two threads? Now things get weird.

    Also, some of my friends are not providing updates for some reason- Hatter received his buttons, and Kilgore hasn't even registered. I don't know what their deal is.

    Edit: 130? Wow. Well, looks like not many people will be getting my buttons. I've got 64 Dr. Faustus, and probably about 50 'I am Giant' buttons.

    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.

    As long as we're stating names, my name is Faustus, and you are free to refer to me as such.

    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.

    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.

    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.
