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!

[EAST] Badges are arriving! Do Not Post Pictures of your badges!

Feel free to be excited and post that you received them, but it has been asked that this year nobody post badge pictures on the forums.

For Clarity:

    For further reference, we don't want people posting badge pictures because it makes it easier for counterfeiters to find and fake this year's badges. The fewer pictures out there, the harder it will be for them to fake them.

    Thanks for understanding.

    Oh man, the badges are actually live bobcats, aren't they? This is all a nefarious plot to ensure that everyone gets attacked by a wild bobcat!

    No, but in all seriousness: can Mike or Jerry make an announcement about this on the main site? I'm guessing there's a large chunk of PAX attendees that don't read these forums and may start unwittingly posting pics of their badges to twitter/blogs/etc in excitement.

    Then again, maybe telling people not to do it would cause more people to do it, due to John Gabriel's internet fuckwad theory? I don't know. It could go either way?

    Wasn't M&J that asked. Pictures will get out there, this is an effort to not have a single one stop shop for them on the forums. It's a very small part, but it's something.

    Question: Will we need to feed our bobcat when it arrives? Or does it come with a satchel of bobcat snacks that will last it until the convention?

    Your bobcat will have enough snack food to last you until the convention (unless you're very very small). ;)

    Come one guys, don't be dicks about this. I really hope as adults (mostly) we can be mature about this and not be smartasses and just not post pics. Period. It's annoying and disrespectful to even pretend you're posting a badge picture.

    But it's all part of our plan. If we see anybody outside the convention center selling live bobcats, we know we've got a counterfeiter.
