Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
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!

[PRIME] Twitter at PAX Prime 2012 - The twitter / growing louder... / Sunrise

Spoiler:

Twitter is a handy tool for keeping up with PAX lines, announcements, friends and giveaways. Although connections are often spotty in the convention center, Twitter is an easy media to access, and you can even have feeds sent as SMS to your cell phone to avoid data charges or the need for a smartphone.

I'll be keeping this thread and the lists updated on a fairly regular basis, so if you have suggestions on what needs to be here, or would like your handle to be added to the attendees list (if you are actually attending PAX Prime 2012), post away!

Disclaimer: Twitter accounts that are obviously not personal accounts will not be added to the attendee list. This is not the place to plug your blog or your game site, this is the place to connect personally with other attendees through this social medium.

I've posted to be added to the list, but the most recent update went by and I wasn't added... what gives?
Most likely it's because the twitter account in question either wasn't public, or wasn't a personal account. If I've made a mistake, please PM me.

Can I sign up my friend or significant other if I know their twitter account?
No, they should sign themselves up if they want to be on the list.

Why am I making a new thread for each PAX and not just keeping one giant list?
Mainly because the attendee list is designed so that people going to the current PAX can get to know each other before the show, and so that tweets during the show on that list will be topical. This also allows the list to be always easily opt-in. After this pax is over, if you never want to be on another PAX list again, there's nothing you need to do! Nobody has to go back after 3 years and say "you know I'd really like to be taken off the 1000 person PAX list". If you really like the tweets of particular people on the list, follow them individually (I go through and follow lots of people right after a PAX is over), or keep your own PAX list of awesome PAX attendees, or just make all my lists into one giant list.

This year the lists are going to be kept through a pax community based twitter account that a few people have access to so the lists can be maintained more efficiently and there's a one stop shop for pax related twitter lists. This account resides here: @paxcommunity ... the account holding these lists (will often retweet various pax related things). Not on the list since a list can't follow its owner :(

Non-attendee lists and the hashtags are now kept updated on the Twitter PAX Community Wiki Page. Everything here except for the attendee list will be a link to the wiki page, and I'll edit (or others can edit) that page for things like additional hashtags and whatnot.

PAX Official Twitters and Important (some Unofficial) Department Feeds for During the Show (List HERE)

PAX Staff: Folks from PA and Reed Pop, those who make PAX go (List HERE)

Community Twitters (most people follow them individually. Due to popular demand, List HERE)

Hashtags To Know
Hashtags serve as a method of connecting conversations on twitter between people that may not be following each other. This is a great way to follow along with certain events that are ongoing during PAX. Head the the hashtag link to see what's there :)

Attendees (List HERE) - Post to be added to the list (your tweets must be public to be on the twitter list)
List behind spoiler, because it will get gigantic.

    At the point in time when bullets can pass through the interdimensional walls, when firepower takes up the entirety and eternity of space and time all being stuck in a neverending life and death cycle as bullets recover and destroy their bodies in quick succession, no one able to think about anything but the sheer force of the bullets rapidly flying literally everywhere in the materium turning the warp itself into nothing but a sea of semi-automatic weaponry. Then there will be enough dakka.

    Oh, if you follow me but don't get a follow back in a day or two it's nothing personal, it's just that I'm on a boat and can't access Twitter's site to easily go through and do follow backs. I'll be home Sunday and will get it all sorted then and add everyone!

    Heh, I should probably point out that I'm a really wonky follower, so don't be offended if I don't follow back. I do follow the list (or will when we get closer to PAX) and try to stick to that, nothing personal.
    Also, fair warning my tweets now are obviously not gaming related and less than PC (they are SFW!). I usually tweet a "Change of Subject" just before PAX (And fear not, I go dark on the politics during PAX.)

    Yeah, personally I tend to not follow people directly until after PAX. I create a column in tweetdeck for the list, and then follow people that I enjoyed twittering with from that list once PAX is over.

    If you’re winning, play safe and keep the game clean and simple. If you are losing, take risks and complicate the game.

    I've been keeping a list of PAXers since 2008, so if you want to follow an extremely noisy list of almost 500 PAXers you can feel free to do so.
