All of these pax Twitter percentage updates are giving me crazy anxiety.

    Yep, I mute the Official_PAX twitter account every year just because of those. So obnoxious!!

    Dudes, I put that feedback in every year. They don't realize that we're not all thrilled about a countdown telling us how soon we have to go back to the real world?

    I really, really hate those tweets. They are incredibly obnoxious and depressing destroyers of fun and happiness. :(

    People have complained about these every year for as long as PAX has had a twitter. I don't think they're going to change any time soon.

    I think the complainers about these are a vocal minority. Most people seem to either not give a shit (me), or like them. One day I'm sure an "Achievement Unlocked: Another PAX Complete" will start to appear at the end.

    I like'em. During a weekend where all sense of time can easily be lost, it's a clear and direct indicator of how far along you are in the PAX experience.

    I'll just repeat what I tweeted to them in '14. Frame this thing in the positive.

    "You still have 29% of PAX remaining!" feels a whole hell of a lot better than "Your PAX vacation is 71% finished".

    Accomplish the same thing, but tell people they can still enjoy it.

    I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.

    I am totally on the get rid of these tweets bandwagon! If you REAAAALY need to know when PAX is done and can't wait for it to be over just look at the damn clock.

    The worst tweet was on Friday morning, "Pax is 1% complete". Good lord, who tf needs to know that!!?? 1% isn't very informative first of all and really anyone that is excited for that 1% probably should be reconsidering going to PAX.

    I was about to say this. I typically don't mind those tweets, but the 1% complete one really had me like, "Really? What is the purpose?"
