Pinny Pal Community Thread 2.0 - Please read the first post :)

Hi I'm Manic2k, Welcome to the Pinny Pal community thread!

If you are here and you are reading this for the first time then you have discovered the
joys of being a “Pinthusiast”!

Who are we?
Well we are collectors of Pinny Arcade of course! (http://www.penny-arcade.com/pinny-arcade)
Since 2013 Pinny Arcade has exploded and people are having fun collecting and trading and meeting other pin pals too!
The community is thriving and will continue to grow over the coming years with the addition of new pins and being released at every PAX!

So how do you get started here??

Well it’s easy just do the following :
1. Introduce yourself to our great community, maybe telling us about how you got interested in Pinny Arcade and ask us any questions you have.
2. Like the community Facebook page for all community news and updates, Pinny Arcade announcement/spoilers as we find them out. (www.facebook.com/pinnypals)
3. Follow our twitter Page: @pa_pinpals
4. You'd would like to showcase your Pinny Arcade collection? Send me a picture of your collection so far too [email protected]
5. Check out our community site: http://community.pinnypals.com/
- Also our SubReddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/pinnypals

How do I trade around here?
There are two ways:

Single trades:
In regards to single trades or non-partnership trades at the moment you just post in the "Pin Pal Trading Post" thread what you have
for trading and what you need/want for your collection. Then you PM the person that has what you want and then you can offer a trade.

our community website! www.pinnypals.com
-This site allows you to register your collection as well as what you would like to put up for trade. A digital lanyard if you will.

Pin Pal Partnerships:
We have had one successful year of the pinny pal groups and we are moving into our second year.

What is a Pin Pal partnership?
A pin pal partnership is a collective of 4 pin pals each representing each other at one of the four
PAXs - collecting pins that the other two would normally not have a chance on getting alone.

What are the benefits of this arrangement?
The benefits are as follows:
-Access to pins from a PAX you usually would miss out collecting and would have to arrange trades.
- Saving on shipping, instead of shipping to 40 or so addresses you will only theoretically need to ship to two addresses.
- Knowing you have trades arranged and knowing how much/what you need to collect for yourself and your fellow Pin Pals.
- Established trade route - this means that you will have partners that you can rely on as well as built raport.

Sounds great, how do I sign up?
Easy just send a message to me aka Manic2k and I will put you into a group,
All you need to specify is the PAX you are most favourable to going to and what level collector you
would say you are.

What level collector?
As in what you are aiming for in terms of collecting, so far there are only two levels:
Enthusiastic: - "I know I can't get them all, but I'll get as many as I can find."
Hardcore: - "If I don't get every single Pin, my brain-squirrels will cause me pain."

You will be grouped up with other like-minded collectors in a group message moderated by myself just to help you and your group get set up and to help with trade arrangements.



When do I send my pin pals their pins that I collected?
This is up to you and your group and will differ with preference.

It is advised however for each member of your pin pal group to hold onto your pins until all tree PAX even sets have been collected and send them all at once.


Being a Hardcore collector I will need to purchase core sets to collect pins, how does that work with the other pin pals in my group?
This again will depend on the group and its preferences. If your groups decide to purchase the sets and send them to the pin pal who is up collecting then they do that. If the pin pal who is up for collecting buys all the trade resources he needs for 3 sets and then works it with his group, then he does that.

What if they cheat me?
Unfortunately this is a possibility and everyone should be a little wary.
Get to know your new group, they are a part of this community and are here for the same reason you are which is to collect the pins and have a blast doing so. If they do end up cheating you or your group then they will be black listed from the community.

A moderator note on pin trading via the forums:

Please see the forum rules for our policy on buy/sell of things. The Pin threads encourage trading, not a marketplace.

This thread gives no legitimacy to anyone attempting to trade with you. Any trades performed should always be assumed to be at one's own risk with no official avenue for retribution in the event of a fuckup or a scam.

Why are you doing all this?
I have fallen in love with this hobby and the community is awesome.
When the prime pins where announced I saw that there were a crazy number so I approached
the community at the time with the idea of setting up a partnership with two other forum members
so we could trade. Forum member Reneguage suggested we call it Pin Pals. It was successful and I wanted to share that with other community members and help everyone work together.

Time Stamp Variants:
It was discovered that there are 2012 stamped pins as well as 2013 stamped pins.
This is because pinny arcade was due to debut at PRIME 2012 but was pushed back to
EAST 2013. The 2012 pins are found on core set pins, CTS Gabe and Zombie Tycho as well as the
Pinny Arcade Logo Pin and The Merch pin. Time stamps are for those collectors that must have them all.
In regards to rarity, 2012 pins are considered rarer/more significant than 2013 pins as they are first prints.
We will see more time stamp variants appear as designs are reprinted in later years
with new time stamps.

    I AM AFRAID AND CONFUSED

    is this the new "community" thread? or do we make a new one / go somewhere else to talk general pinny related stuff?

    any reason why the old thread was closed? too big? really liked how there was a place for everyone got together to talk, hope we can get an equivalent solution up...

    Restarting the Community thread before every PAX isn't the worst idea ever. People might be put off by 50 odd pages, so a fresh start is a Good Thing.

    On that note, the FAQ has been sent out. I shall update when I have answers back. I think with Mike being in Spokane this weekend it might be a day or two.

    I've got flights, hotel and 3-day badge for Aus. Definitely going and keen for some pin trading and pin pal meet ups :D

    One of my friends is potentially doing a Thursday night game trivia session and if so he's going to try to get some merch from PA for prizes. If he doesn't manage that I've got some pin sets from throughout 2013 I can throw in. If it ends up happening I'll let you guys know.

    Any day now, surely.

  • TheAggroCraigTheAggroCraig Ultimate Lucky Douchebag MassachusettsRegistered User regular
    I assume it'll be the Mike trade exclusive pin if anything... regardless I want to see it (though can we assume it'll be the Broodax one he showed before?)

    And to bring up a newish topic, does everyone think we'll see a PAX logo for every PAX going forward? So a PAX East 2014/14PAX this year? As much as I love the logos (they're my favorite from each set don't get me wrong), I'm not sure if I'd want... what are essentially repeat pins every year I guess.

  • foehammerfoehammer procrastinator extraordinaire melbourneRegistered User regular
    i think there will be a logo each prime at least for a couple of years

  • AyefkayAyefkay Queensland, AustraliaRegistered User regular
    I forgot... Is the year 2013 on the pax logo pins?

    I just want them to vary in some fashion, maybe stick a character with the logo or something? A slight redesign in the future? The only one that doesn't really have anything numerical on it is the Aussie one, though I'm sure that'l just change to the PAX Aus logo they use everywhere else.

  • foehammerfoehammer procrastinator extraordinaire melbourneRegistered User regular
    yes ayefkay they do have year

    Another DLC pin has risen on ebay... god damn I hate these people D:

    You shouldn't. From those I have spoken to they are collectors like you and I who just have pressing money issues. The idea of them holding a potential car/mortgage/rent payment in a Pin just can't be reconciled. They aren't scalpers who camped the Kickstarter in the hopes it would be worth something, (worst business idea yet) but PA fans who found themselves holding a Pin worth more than they thought. Now they have bills to deal with.

    Ebay is probably the fairest way to handle this: they get whatever anyone is willing to pay for it, rather than assuming a set price. It allows other collectors to pick up a rare missing Pin. This isn't PAX tickets mass grabbed by people looking to make a profit.

    00Fayt00Dead Reckoning
  • TheAggroCraigTheAggroCraig Ultimate Lucky Douchebag MassachusettsRegistered User regular
    No I totally get the reasoning, it just sucks that I have to watch all of these go while I sit here wanting the pin but refusing to waste that much on one.
