    Yes, [vidurl=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SygUL2G0IJk]join us[/vidurl]. It'll be awesome. :-) (except replace evil with awesome and you'll get the idea.)

    I think this article does a great job of describing the experience. Highly recommended.

    In the past I know I've seen new Enforcers seem to arrive in groups, AND I know PRD has a ton on her plate right now, both PAX-related and otherwise. It might be a couple weeks, or it might be later tonight.

    If you're waiting to find out if you're going to be an Enforcer before you buy tickets, please don't. Buy them ASAP. If you're accepted, I'm positive you can return the passes. If you wait to find out first, you might find that one or two of the single-pass days has sold out while you were waiting. X__X

    There usually are. PRD tries really hard to put us where we want within reason, to schedule us around the times we want to be off to see things, and otherwise make our Enforcing experience the best it can be.

    Even after the schedule has seen its last revision, if something comes up at the last minute it may be possible find another Enforcer to swap with, with the permission of your department managers.

    I need to make it clear, though, that I'm not saying these things always happen. Plus even if you end up scheduled at the same place and time, the dynamic nature of the convention might mean you start the shift working together and then one of you gets peeled away to help with a line management crisis, or to help set something up for an exhibitor or speaker or vendor.

    Just have realistic expectations. Managers and organizers really do care about putting you where you'll most enjoy helping and where you'll be best able to contribute. But at the same time, we love PAX and our attendees as much as we care for each other; the needs of the convention need to win.

    When 3-day badges sell out [i.e., last Thursday], you can consider apps "closed."

    Hoping you're just posting late, but applied earlier.

    And I should add, if you made the deadline, best of luck!

    Well you could post them in the ticket thread on the forums, there are plenty of people wanting to buy some.

    There are also a lot of enforcers on the enforcer forums looking to pick some up for friends/family

    Nope Now would not be a good time to apply as Robert said:

    No, ma'am. You will get a black badge. Like Red said above, consider selling them to your fellow [E] or here on the forums (for face value).

    In general I'd say it never hurts to ask, as long as you're prepared for what the answer will probably be. Sometimes circumstances change -- but the reason for cutting off applicants once passes sell out is a good one and I think it's important that you understand the reasoning and can explain why your acceptance can still be compatible with that reasoning.

    Other than that, previous replies are correct and formally I don't think applications are open any longer.

    To answer the rest of that you can get them refunded at the show by dropping by the registration area, but as mentioned earlier, its better to do a public service and sell them at face value to one of the needy folks in the ticket thread. It's always better to sell your tickets rather than just getting a refund, so that two more people who don't have tickets will be able to attend.

    Did end up selling them on the forums. Thought If i got refunded that someone would be able to buy them via registration. The guy who's buying them is extremely excited to be getting tix.
