    Well the votes are in and thanks to the use of proportional representation and not some odd college weighting system the popular vote has won!

    A total of 37 votes were cast and the proportion of votes for each design option are as follows:

    1) Loading Bar: 41%
    2) Streamer: 3%
    3) ARG: 57%

    So there we have it, the ARG concept wins PAX East 2017 Forum Badge design. This can only be regarded as a good thing! Well done everyone for participating :)

    Nifty =) ... Do we have a designer for it? If not I'd be up for offering my services.

    The forum badge does have a strict set of design criteria. This includes the presence of the crest and the list of names on the back. I do know what these criteria are so to hand it off to someone else would be difficult. However, any assistance you can give to its final design would be gratefully received.

    Absolutely not trying to step on any toes. I just wanted to make sure this project could continue, but it seems like you have a great handle on things. I'm excited to see the outcome, but if there's anything that needs illustrated, I'll be around!

    I voted for the Loading Bar .....

    I blame the false media coverage and voter turn out...

    Good to see this still going strong. Missed the voting, but I was going to go for #3 anyways. Much obliged.

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

    Hello all! I've developed some prototypes for the forum badge and they can be seen in the images below. Please let me know your thoughts on them:

    Looks cool so far.

    One thing is Pokémon needs to be capitalized and have the accent mark over the e :biggrin:

    So far I'm liking it (even though I wanted the loading bar) :P

    I'd have to say, Loading Bar.

    Alternatively, Line Simulator 2017 or some combination of both.

  • kropotkinkropotkin Forum Badge Creator London UKRegistered User regular
    Thank you for the votes people, but the badge theme was chosen some time back. If you could provide feedback and suggestions for the designs I have posted I'd appreciate it.

  • SinoSambaSinoSamba CaliforniaRegistered User regular
    This might make the badge a bit too busy with the background being actual pictures of crowds, but a couple of review blurbs ("10/10 would walk again"; "Is this a real game?") might be funny on the front. It does look great as-is, as always :)

    I too do not like the cover. I think I'll filter the images to make them more video gamey like and I love the idea of review quotes on the front!

    As an avid player of simulation games, I approve of this badge

    Voting ended in November last year as I explained in a post above and the ARG was selected. Please provide feedback to the current design.

    I share the opinion of adding reviewa to the front but I think keeping the blurbs really short so as not to make it too busy is important.

    I did a quick search for "pixel crowd art" and came up with this. It's not PAX, but a portion of it could used as the layout is similar. Not sure how much "gamey" you'd like it to be. I also don't know if we'd need to ask permission to use it.

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

    My only suggestion for an improvement would be some form of dial for a step counter somewhere, could be analog or digital. Great work on the design again kropotkin

    @MagnusCarter that's a cool idea! Perhaps one that is maxed out (all 9's) or just a blank space for us to fill in our own (for those that carry one irl).

    as I have no design skills what so every I can't give any constructive comments except to say that I like the badge as is.

  • DurinthalDurinthal Registered User regular
    Couple of ideas for quotes:
    • "My feet are sore—perfect!"
    • "Great for agoraphobia!"

    Here is the new version of the PAX East 2017 forum badge:

    The front has had the images pixellated and poster edges and step counter added:
    170204%20PAX%20EAST%202017%20PA%20Forum%20Badge%20Front%20v2_1_zps6nwyyqxp.jpg

    The back has had the forest picture in the background also pixellated and poster edges added and the text has been amended to correct the spelling of Pokémon and added quotes.
