    # 3 is a bad ass stein. If it ends up that one I may actually jump back in again. Neat. The stein from 2? years ago looks a bit like if you combined 2 and 4 imo

    #3 by far the best, #4 is cool, def would be interested in the taller steins too!

  • TabooPhantasyTabooPhantasy Registered User regular
    I believe #4 is the same style as before. I can attest to it being VERY sturdy :)
    I vote #4 so I can make a matching set!

    Not voting, just adding info: #4 is the closest to the previous run, though the handle didn't have the thumb rest. They were 16oz.

    #3 is wicked nice, and my favorite by far. After that, I'd probably say 2, 4, then 1.

    #3 is my favorite, followed by 2, 4, 1 in that order. I really like the thumb grip but I'm not a huge fan of the star-cut bottom, which I think is reflected in my rankings. I think I'd prefer the 16oz size over bigger or smaller than that.

    I love #3 would be even better in a 24oz size!

  • RappakRappak Registered User regular
    I like 3 the best. It's not a style i have in my collection.

    #3 24oz.

    Thank you everyone for the feedback. I'm going to narrow down the choices based on what people have said and also introduce the larger sizes, since some have inquired. I'm going to include measurements so that you can get a better idea of sizing.

    I hope to have a new set of voting by the end of this week.

    Also, thanks for your patience. Like I said earlier: I'm pretty swamped at work.

    Because of the differences in size, I tried to adjust the images so that you could get a better idea of the size and shapes. NOTE: These are not 100% to scale. I just eyed it out based on the measurements provided to me by the site. I probably don't have everything proportional. Please make note of the dimensions listed under each option.

    Here is the new Tankard Voting Form!
    To explain the points on the form, your first choice gets 3 points, second is 2, third is 1. Most total points wins. I figure that is the best way to get the most agreed upon selection.

    NOTE: The Option numbers have changed below from what they were before.

    Not gonna lie, my first thought on seeing the dimensions of #1 and #2 is to wonder if there's some time lord technology at work here.
    I am not up to date on the latest in beverage containment technology.. or really, beverage containment technology as a whole.
    All I know is that you never, ever shut down the protection grid on your ghost containment unit.

    Full disclosure from someone with a lot of experience with fatty mugs (the 25oz. beast that's option 4) - your wrist will not like you if you hold this in a traditional fashion of gripping the handle like a coffee mug. You'll need to wrap your hand around the mug itself, and put the top of the handle on the fleshy part of your hand between your thumb and index finger. Of course, this pertained to my days in a bar, when I would be holding the mug for the majority of the time rather than having it sit on a table or something. Just.. fair warning :)

    Still voting for it ;)

    Voted! As much as I like the design of #4, it's just way bigger than I want/need.

  • GoreySailorGoreySailor Registered User regular
    Great job on this! Such tough decisions though!!

    Just so that everyone is aware, Option 4 is also the most expensive of the options: if 54 were purchased, it would be $15.50 per glass. Now if we could get 72 units sold, it'd be knocked down to about $11.25

    I voted for #3

    Get some cookies, so you can eat 'em and grow up big and strong and kick Piston in the butt-butt.
  • DevereauxDevereaux Registered User regular

    Me personally, I'm good. You gave all the dimensions and a size comparison between them.

    For the record folks, a US Pint is 16 ounces (473ml), and imperial pint 19 ounces (561ml)

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

    I set up pickup times / places at prime and had to borrow a wagon from my neighbor to haul them all around. It was pretty labor intensive. Also, at the end of the con, there were always glasses left over from people who didn't pick up. Some forgot and contacted me later, and I mailed them out. Others just didn't pick up.

    Re: dishwashing - Punzie and I both used customglassware.com and were happy with the durability. On the Prime ones, the printing was goofy (offset didn't match up) on probably 1 out of every 40 glasses, so I ordered a few extra (as they recommended on their website).

    With 40 responses (similar to the interest form in the beginning), I'm going to close voting by the end of business (EST) tomorrow and post the results just after.

    Here is my thinking on the remaining timeline (this is not official, but pretty close):

    Jan. 16th: Voting ends
    Jan. 16th - 28th: Interested in Ordering Form*
    Jan. 28th - Feb. 8th: Submit Payments via GoFundMe**
    Feb. 9th: Order officially submitted
    Feb. 20th: Order should arrive in Boston***

    *This form will be a used to determine how many units total will be ordered, which will determine the price per unit. I really need everyone who is interested to create a submission; I'll put up estimated costs based on quantities so you know what to expect.

    **The order cannot be placed until the funds are collected; we're talking $600-$850 that have to be submitted to the vendor prior to order fulfillment. This window provides two Friday, which should help most people receive a payday during this period.

    ***There is a 7-10 business day period for the creation, packaging, and delivery. This will provide me with 2 weeks to get any errors corrected, should there be any (e.g., broken units). Once they arrive, I'll upload a picture of our little drinking buddies.

    OFFICIAL RESULTS!!!

    After 47 votes, we have an official winner. And it's not just a winner, it was a landslide. Fellow PAXers of the forums, I present you with your official PAX 2015 Community Forum Stein: (spoiled for dramatic effect)
    jtt9dy1muyq2.png

    Below are the official results, including the table and how the numbers were calculated, spoiled for size:
    9is43ckwx5wu.jpg
    bvg1jjqbb2rw.jpg

    Within the next many hours, I intend to have the Interest in Ordering form available for all to begin filling out. That form will be used to determine the pricing structure; the more units ordered, the cheaper per unit it will be. Below is the cost breakdown:
    p8ce9uf3dag5.jpg
    As you can see, 74 is the magic number. If we hit that, It's a big drop in price. But the first big drop is hitting 36. Just to let you know, there is a setup fee of $200 (normally $50, but we're doing multiple colors).

    As with what LexiconGrrl did in the past, any monetary surplus is going to get donated to Child's Play; I really like that idea.

    Thank you all for participating in the voting.

    Good Saturday to you all! I present you with the PAX 2015 Community Stein: Intent to Purchase form. This is not for placing an order, but rather to get the numbers together for the final order. The final results of this form will determine the cost per unit, as outlined below:
    p8ce9uf3dag5.jpg

    While it is not your official order (and you are more than welcome to change the quantity later on), please try to be accurate with the number you place. If you are buying more than 15 (I don't know, maybe you really like steins, which is totally cool), just send me a PM in the forums and I'll make the change in the final results.

    PLEASE NOTE: Along with the pricing above, GoFundMe has charges as well which are 7.9% + $0.30 per donation for the US/Canada.
