PAX 2015 Steins - EXTRAS ON SALE

edited June 2015 in PAX East
First off, a big thanks to @reinangel for starting this entire discussion out, @LexiconGrrl‌ for the design used at previous PAX events, @zerzhul‌ for helping merge the threads together, and lastly to everyone else for helping this take off.

Feeding off of previous events, we'll be creating PAX Community Steins to be distributed during PAX East 2015. As stated in previous threads, the stein will not be specific to one singular PAX event, but span across the entire community of fellow PAXers. This is not an official PAX stein, just an officially awesome stein that happens to deal with awesome people who enjoy PAX. With that being said, we're putting together a PAX stein order that will be delivered to Boston and handed out at meeting places (TBD) during the PAX East 2015 event next March.

UPCOMING PLAN OF EVENTS:
Jan. 21st - Feb. 1st: Submit Payments via the GoFundMe page
Feb 2nd: Order officially submitted
Feb. 25th: Order arrive in Boston
March 5th: Pre-PAX Gaming night - First meetup to hand out steins
March 6: 6:00 pm @ Westin mezzanine, just outside the bridge.
March 7: 1:00 pm @ Laugh Boston.
March 8: 1:00 pm @ Westin mezzanine, next to the bridge.

Below is the official PAX 2015 Community Forum Stein:

COST: So you want to be a viking? Well the closest I can get you to one is in these tankards. For $12, you too can own one. Become a modern-day viking (silly hat not included) and down your most daring beverage in this 25-oz. tankard of total badassitude (Mr. Torgue would be proud of you). The only thing that's up to you is the math. Thankfully, we all paid a bunch of money for a computer that does... MATH!!!! Rock on. Open your calculator, and start multiplying!

HOW TO ORDER: Ordering is now closed. You may proceed to the GoFundMe page that has been set up if you wish to view the project

HOW TO RECEIVE YOUR STEIN: Pre-PAX Gaming Night will be the initial meet-up spot. I'll also hold a single 1-hour meetup spot for each day of PAX to give everyone a fair chance to retrieve their tankard.

Should you have any questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to contact me via a PM in this forum or at [email protected]

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

    I'm still loving and using my stein, and it's shown no signs of chipping so I don't see a need to push it forward (not that the idea is mine to push, I just bought one). Was it previously an annual thing, like the challenge coins?

    I don't remember it being an annual thing, I think it was more "people liked this at Prime let's do it for East"

    I did them for Prime. We did beer steins one year, then pint glasses the next, but the glass company screwed up the order and about 24 people didn't get their pint glasses, which sucked balls for everybody. Last year I didn't have the time or resources to do it again, esp. being kinda gunshy about that mistake happening again. @Punzie did the East steins for 2013 but nobody did them for 2014.

    I love my East stein and would certainty be interested in purchasing another if that were a thing to happen again in the future. I can understand why it isn't a yearly thing, though.

    I do love my East stein, I'd be interested if the pint glasses came over.

  • vttymvttym Registered User regular
    I'd be interested as well, fwiw.

  • ishtraishtra Long IslandRegistered User regular
    Would anyone be able to make this happen for this year, b/c I'd also definitely commit to one.

    I would totally be about this. I'll look into how this can be done. Can't guarantee anything, but I'll look into it.

    @LexiconGrrl‌ Did you get all of the steins delivered separately or did you just have everyone meet at Prime and hand them out there?

    Suppose we did get all of this together, should we:
    1. use the same logo/print as the previous one?
    2. have them all shipped to Boston and people meet up to get their piece(s)?
    3. setup a GoFundMe once we get a list together so that it is all pre-paid?

    I've looked through some places and it seems like they only ship to one place, so #2 I guess is the only way to do it. If we go through with this, I guess we'd all have to vote on what type of "stein" to order. Obviously we can't go into crazy mode with the limited time we have.

    The logo that was printed on the previous steins was the "PAX Community Logo". It's the same one that tends to be on the Forumer Badges (which I'm looking forward to) and the t-shirts we made up in...2012 I think. I'd recommend sticking with that logo.

    So we're definitely going to use the exact same image as before:
    ucoodqlrj5dm.png

    As for glass or tankard, I'd like to get a few more people to toss in their two cents.

    I'm going to try to get some sort of schedule down for when certain choices need to be made. Since PAX East is only 66 days away, I'd like to get everything set and ordered by the end of January. That would allow for shipping and checking to ensure that nothing broke, then replacements if necessary.

    Stay tuned, fellow PAXers

    So we can make this a bit more official and easier to collect results: here is the pint glass vs. tankard survey

    Let me know if you have problems with it. I'm a Google Forms noob. Even though it is easy to set up, I could easily fudge it up.

    I have the stein already. Absolutely love it. I guess If we're using the same logo I'd prefer the pint glasses

    Because a lot of people are probably still on vacation, let's keep this little survey up until Thursday, January 8th

  • Le_GoatLe_Goat Frechified Goat Person BostonRegistered User regular
    Also, here is a forum to fill out for so we can begin to get a count of how many steins to order. As with most custom-designed items: the more we purchase, the cheaper per-unit cost.

    PAX Community Stein Interest form

    NOTE: For undocumented lurkers out there, if you wish to obtain any, contact someone that you know who is registered in the forums so that we can assure you get your stein, while also not publically divulging your personal information in the form.

    Is there a premium option to use a dishwasher safe paint? Even if it raised the price a couple bucks I'd gladly pay it for the convenience.

  • TabooPhantasyTabooPhantasy Registered User regular
    If the steins aren't dishwasher safe you could have fooled me. I use it HEAVILY and it almost always goes in the washer. No issues at all so far.
    Now I'm paranoid.

    Signed up for definitely 1, might buy 2 (one for me and one as a gift) if the price is low enough.

    I didn't even think about that. I'll make sure to ask potential providers.

    I do know that some glasses I have claim to not be dishwasher safe, but I've had them for 10+ years and they're less faded than most of my T-shirts. Then again, I have some glasses that wore off quickly.
