    To make the letters green they would have to be MUCH bigger. You need the metal for the outline and then enough space to fill it with the color. I don't think there is enough space.

    Also, I second fixing all the typos and it would look much cleaner if the "HOME" had a solid box around it so the background didn't show through.

    It looks good but the "Home" text kinda gets lost with the bronze overlay.

  • BluemeaneBluemeane Registered User regular
    I agree with the typo fixes NEED to be made, and then something around 'HOME' to make it look like it stands out more. Perhaps a heart shape around the word 'HOME' would be awesome if possible.

    PAAAAAAAAAAAAAAXXXXXXXXXXX!

    I've got a few recommendations I could pass along:

    - Typos. The avenues are labeled "RUE" instead of "AVE". "2TH" and "3TH" on the coin should be changed to "2ND" and "3RD". Pine is "PIHE", Stewart is "STEWRRT", Olive is "OLIUE", Spring is labeled "TPRING", and Interstate 5 is missing a label. See if Kiddercorp can get em fixed!

    - I would do away with the circles and letters, but that's just me. With the legend in the program they serve a purpose, but I think they make the coin look a bit cluttered. Removing them could make the colored coin a bit *less* colorful, however, so maybe not.

    - Green pax pox text sounds like a good idea as well. And not so much another typo, but maybe tack on a period at the end there!

    Overall the design looks absolutely amazing!

    Good catches!

    I will also see about putting a box over HOME

    Once we have finalized the design and I have confirmed prices and shipping, I will set up the order form.

    Due to things being a rush, they all may be shipped to Seattle and @SutibunRi might have to meet up with everyone to hand them out. If so, please be gentle with him :)

    If they do have to be shipped to Seattle, don't try to have everyone meet up. Get hotel names and room numbers and drop them off at the front desk. Lots of people will never meet up with you as they get busy and forget. Don't ask me how I know from experience

    Downside to that idea is for those ofmus not doing hotels. Or the locals. I know many are probally alsp doing airbnb or other forms of cheap traveling... i am willing to meetup to pick up my coin...

    And it needs a period at the end.

    "You have died of PAX pox."

    I've sent, "You have died of PAX pox." to Kiddercorp.

    I have also asked to confirm shipping and pricing.

    When they get back to me and we agree on things, I will set up an order form :)

    Hello all! RILMS is away for a bit, and I have returned from Edmonton. This means that I have made the Challenge Coin order form available. It is located at https://goo.gl/forms/aHAZ5jzizYSd4MPt1. I will also post this to the first post for ease of access. Thank you very much for your patience.

    There was talk of me distributing coins at PAX.
    After some discussion with Nfan10039, RILMS, and Kiddercorp, it was determined that the time frame and logistics of that would run a small, but real risk of the coins arriving in Seattle too late for me to properly distribute, so that option isn't actually available, sorry for any confusion that may have caused.

    If it's not a huge pain, I would like to pick one up! Definitely willing to order one for $8 USD but probably not $20. D:

    The coin looks great BTW. :D

    So are the coins being shipped directly? Also, just so I make sure I'm not shorting anyone, if I want 3 color coins for domestic I'd have to pay 21 bucks correct?

    Correct on both counts.

    I'm confused as to how to order...I opened the order form but it says I need to pay Kiddercoin...but that form says it needs an invoice number...(if I do the "make a payment button on the front page)

    I'm confused as to how to order...I opened the order form but it says I need to pay Kiddercoin...but that form says it needs an invoice number...(if I do the "make a payment button on the front page)

    From the form:
    Welcome to the order form for the PAX West 2017 Challenge Coin. For this form, you must have submitted a Paypal payment to Kiddercorp (their account is marty@kccoin.com). This is required in order to fill out the PayPal Transaction ID question. Also, in order to provide Kiddercorp with the needed funds, I have provided a payment chart located at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1AsgJrenKv-KfCCSwpDIh94DCoxqwT2m2-Yj5VqQeR6U/edit?usp=sharing. Thank you for your patience.

    So it seems like
    1. Look at chart at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1AsgJrenKv-KfCCSwpDIh94DCoxqwT2m2-Yj5VqQeR6U/edit?usp=sharing to determine how much to pay Kindercorp.
    2. Submit a PayPal payment to Kiddercorp via PayPal using marty@kccoin.com
    3. Get a PayPal Transaction ID from previous step
    4. Go to https://goo.gl/forms/aHAZ5jzizYSd4MPt1 and state what you want and where with the money you just paid and how to look you up to make sure you didn't over/underpay.
    5. ...
    6. Profit

    Edit: I haven't spotted a deadline and is there some kind of approximate ship date?

    Do we use the Friends & Family option or Goods & Services for PayPal? I've done Friends & Family for other things to avoid having additional fees taken out, but I wasn't sure which was preferred for this group.

    Kiddercorp is a company, and not your good buddy, but I've seen people do it both ways.

    I have just received word that they will not be arriving in time for PAX. For this I am truly sorry. I was hoping that the way I had laid out the time schedule would be okay, but oh well. I know better now and will account for this next year. However, you can still order the coins and get them shipped to your address. Sorry for the inconvenience.
