    Holy crap. I can't believe I missed out on this in the previous years I went.

    Oh well, there's always time to change. Count me in!

    Been gone for a few weeks, but I can't wait for this again. I didn't get to get one last year and was very bummed.

    And as with every year, instead of answering a question I'm just going to tell the kind folks at BYOC that my name's on the list. (60% of the time it works every time)

    That does not prove you are on the forums. Anyone can be 'Durinthal', that is why the questions have to be answered. It's a quite simple concept as only forum members would know the answer to the questions and the enforcers at the BYOC desk are given instructions on this very specific point.
    Yeah, they don't always follow those instructions though. Depends on who's there. Like he said "60% of the time it works every time". Not far off from 50/50. I've definitely seen people asked the questions, but I've also seen people just say "I'm so and so, right there on the list."

    funny, i was always under the impression that it was totally legit to just say that your name is on the badge and the questions were primarily for people not on it. i mean, while someone could definitely lie about who they are, they would have to have some familiarity with the forums to steal a forumer's identity, right? i think the questions are fun either way, but i'm just surprised to know that they are supposed to be required of everyone.

    edit: i looked up past forum threads to see if there was any good reason i was mistaken about this procedure. there is not. MY WHOLE LIFE HAS BEEN A LIE.

    @tvethiopia Yes as horrific as it sounds you have indeed been living a lie. The whole purpose of the questions is to ferret out those opportunists who want free stuff. You could argue that by asking for a forum badge they'd only know of their existence by virtue of the fact that they visit the forums. But one can never be 100% certain of that.

    I find that showing up with the previous forum badge with my name written on the front tends to be good enough to get a badge. Though I imagine it also helps that the people I usually pick up from (the MMT) know who I am :biggrin:

    is it to late to get one if not may I be added to the list

  • zerzhulzerzhul Registered User, Moderator mod
    You don't have to be on the list to pick up a badge at pax, they are available for anyone who can answer the requisite questions about the forum. It appears that the deadline for getting onto the badge back has passed though.

    Sadly the February 20th deadline for adding names to the back of the badge has now passed. However, you can pick up a badge from the pre-PAX dinner and boardgame nights at Westin as well as the BYOC registration desk.

    Thanks for putting this together, @kropotkin .. this is one of those things I look forward to most. Hats off to you for doing this even though you're not coming. And thanks to the folks working locally to make this happen.

    While I agree that being insensitive is an issue, so is being oversensitive.

    Yep! And not being named on the badge certainly doesn't stop you from picking one up at least!

    Since @kropotkin isn't attending this East do we know if anyone will be doing distribution at PrePAX tabletop at the Westin or will all pickups be at BYOC?

    I will be meeting up with rtm416 so he can give them out at the WGN, badges will also be available in the BYOC area, PPD and if I can still remember my name...at the Pokecrawl.

    I am DRAGGING today. About 45 mins out from BYOC. I dropped off badges yesterday around 3 at Westin Game Night check in and also left some for the Cookie Brigade.

    I am so happy that they came out looking so great! Think of me when you wear them around the BCEC, for I'll be 3,000 miles away across the sea inspecting a railway bridge. I wish I was joking about the bridge thing...

    Thanks for putting in the work on these! I was so happy that they turned out so well...I was on pins and needles waiting for them.
