    Thanks for doing this again, Kropotkin. I really like the World War II theme back, and the new name for the operation is just awesome!

    I dig it :-) That's an excellent design.

    Though if possible, can I get my name on the back all lower-case? I regret having the first two letters upper-case on here and not being able to change it :-\

    I don't see why not! Just be sure to remind me closer to the time when I collect the names and place them on the final print version of the back.

    I've noticed a number of queries regarding how people get their names on the back of the Forum Badge. Old hands will know how this goes, but for you new people, this is what you need to do:

    1) Participate in this thread
    2) Take part in a Pre-PAX East unofficial social event
    3) Be a forum admin
    4) Be Robert Khoo
    5) Make the badge in the first place

    Most people get on the back of the badge via methods 1 and 2 for obvious reasons :)

    Yes, how does one get their name on the back - I'm assuming it has to do with account length and number of posts...

    Edit: nevermind, I missed that there was a second page >.<

    PARTICIPATION! Haha, don't worry, I also plan to abide by rule number 2. I wish I got on last year's badge, but oh well.

    Now to wait for the Pre PAX dinner registration...

    So if I do complete my Khoo polyjuice potion I should be in the clear? Because this badge is lovely.
    (Luckily I am more than happy to do steps 1 and 2 just in case I can't find lacewing flies)

    These look awesome once again.

    Fufilling 1 now (because I was lazy and missed out last time) and I'm hoping 2 happens, though nothing's certain at this juncture.

    The new back looks great! Justifying it actually spread the names out enough to read them. ^.^

    Wow, those look great! Hopefully I can get in on this as well. Here's 1, and looking forward to 2 In a couple weeks!

    OK 'participating' is making a post on this thread. That's right, by making the above post, you're now on the back of the badge! Go you.

    I would like my name to be on the badge again for East 2012!

    I also totally owe kropotkin for being our Munchkin teacher at Prime (wow, it's been 2 months already!). The still gazebo haunts me :cry:

    I'm so in on this one again!

    Also, can someone please let me know why there is now a QR code on the front? Is there something special that I have missed out on in the past few months?

    Love the new theme on the back - can't wait to pick one of these up. I keep forgetting to bring last year's version into work to decorate my desk.

    I've had a thought! Rather than having people ask a question to get a badge from the BYOC desk, how about you simply have to respond to the code? i.e. The enforcer handing out the badge says 'D' and the attendee asking for the badge says 'Twenty'. What do you think?

    I like it, although I say that you have to do both ;) the code first, then you get a question.

    I think the responding to the code idea is really cool!

    Also, if it ends up being the question option or the question and the code, will a list of possible questions and answers go up for us to study closer to the event?

    The badges look great! I was glad to get my badge last year with the questions. Hopefully I'll be able to get one at a Pre-PAX event this year.

    Unbeknownst to me, I was behind kropotkin in the queue for Friday's opening. I realized it later in the day. Oops!

    The questions go up around a month before PAX starts. They are all questions only a forum regular would know the answer to.

    I'm assuming this is a list of "OR"s, because I'm not certain I can complete all of those tasks.

    Steps to becoming Khoo:
    1. Try harder
    2. Become Khoo

    If you are not yet Robert Khoo, you are not trying hard enough! Repeat step 1!

    I finished off that list for you. Step four can only be read and understood by Robert Khoo.
