As someone who had grumblings about enforcers last year, I have to say that my dealings with them this year were 100% positive. I was really impressed with how hard they worked and how consistently polite each one I met was. Way to go guys!

    Every time I saw one, I thanked them. This was my first year, though, so I was unfamiliar with any issues of past years.

    All of them were great except one.

    Walked up to a female enforcer sitting at the PAX Merch Booth. Probably about 1pm Saturday. I asked her "Will you be getting in any more shirts?" her response was, "You won't be".

    Marked her as a B**** on the spot and moved on.

    I didnt have any problems with the enforcers this year. Met one of them outside while i was smoking he had a power glove attached to his kilt. Was awfully nice thanks!

    Also met one whom if i remember correctly was from VA also he was working in the Console Freeplay area Sunday afternoon. He was also extremely nice.

    I saw maybe one or two bumps with enforcers this year. I mean like times where they were swamped or overwhelmed.

    It seems like with owning the whole convention center and the inmrpovment on line control and everything, the enforcers only had hard work this years as opposed to hard work and a shitload of trouble brewing as from last year. That said, great thanks to the enforcers for making a lot of trouble and hassle invisible to the convention goers. Amazing job. You know it's great when you feel like they aren't even there, yet see them everywhere.

    I tried to handout PAX09 Xbox LIVE avatar shirts to as many enforcers as I could this year since they were working like crazy and most likely don't get around to as many booths as they would like!

    I mostly encountered the Enforcers in the console freeplay area and they were very helpful, including helping me get set up with some friends in doing some L4D with a system link that I ended up not utilizing due to some time constraints.

    I appreciate your help, thanks folks!

    Blah. Sorry, I just can't stand the taste of Bawls. On a related note, I've been cutting caffeine from my diet. I want to apologize to whoever's panels I kept nodding off at.

    Okay, back to Enforcer appreciation.

    Hmm. Some of us are in actual military organizations, so it might be hard to let go. :P I hope that these enforcers (of which I am probably one) didn't make it unenjoyable for you.

    The enforcers were all awesome, even when they were obviously tired and trying to herd us buttoneers out of walkways. Thanks to all enforcers for keeping PAX running smoothly. It was fun gifting them with buttons, because they were so appreciative.

    Hahaha. LOTRO yeah, I didn't mean anything indeed, just good fun.

    Thank you attendees for lining up well, and sorry for yelling. Just trying to get on message across to a lot of people and stuff

    I really don't remember anyone who was like "I'm on the forums" sorry. I just was overloaded on my foot being in soo. Much pain (stupid broken foot)

    I just hope I made the line up room a bit better, and thanks everyone for giving me a enjoyable weekend of pain.

    I thanked you every time we were in together, I can't never thank them enough. I would also like to send a special thanks to the enforces near the chairs on the entrance side of the concert on Saturday. All the enforcers molesting the one in the middle gave me a great giggle during the Freezepop part. And the one in the kilt that tried to tea bag him. You all were great at your job, friendly, and gave an ill women a wonderful PAX experience again. THANK YOU!

    The Enforcers 99.9 percent rocked!

    I think I even yelled it to them as I was leaving the hall really really early Sunday morning.

    If it were not for those 400ish wonderful people who give up their free time and without pay to deal with a bunch of crazy geeks, PAX would not be all of the awesome it truly is.

    I will yell it again "YOU ENFORCERS ROCKED!"

    I want to thank the enforcers who took me away for stage diving during Anamanaguchi for letting me stay for the show. Seriously they were very cool about it after they told me to never do it again xD Also thank you Makka for being the best. Oh and Eiren..? I think that's how he spelled it, that guy was awesome too.

    I adore the enforcers toiling year after year just to make sure we get through the weekend with a minimum of fuss. Although I have to say seeing Catboy so sedate looking on Friday morning was kind of shocking until I found out why. (Good on you, Catboy, and I'm pretty sure the companies knew they were getting the best)
    BTW, Big Red, I loved your cape. I was told a female enforcer also had one on?

    BigRed offered me some of what was in his mystery thermos.

    I declined.

    Still Enforcers were all awesome. Even when I had some trouble finding BYOC badges the first day and got pointed in the wrong direction a couple of times they went out of their way to fix it so I wasn't even angry for having to make several extra trips to the Hyatt Friday morning.
