Is it okay to collect one if your name isn't on the back? I was late to the party!

I've just picked up the remaining Forum Badges and I was delighted to see only 5 were left unclaimed. Out of 80 badges to have 75 picked up made my heart swell and I think I may have cried a bit. I genuinely thought no one cared, I was clearly mistaken. Thank you all for making this PA Forum member a very happy person.
I can't thank you enough for keeping this tradition going for so long. Even though I spend most of my forum hours in lurker-mode, they've allowed me to connect with some wonderful people at PAX over the years. There's a lot of love here.
They really came out well, but I have only printed 80 of them, with 78 names on the back. This is because over the years I have found that people don't actually collect them and I don't want to waste money printing badges people aren't collecting. In theory, when I go to collect the remaining Forum Badges on Monday afternoon I shouldn't have anything to collect this year, but even printing the number of badges that are close to the number of names on the back I still have over half remaining. This makes me a sad panda, so please, take the time to collect the Forum Badge at some point during PAX, they were made for us after all.

You do not need to have your name on the back of the badge to collect one. You just have to be an active member of the PA forums.
Awesome Job yet again Kropotkin!
These badges are a big deal for some of us. It's all about the community and having something with our name on it to show we were there, as part of our gaming history is awesome to have. Again, thank you so much for taking the time and effort to make these badges for us. I definitely appreciate being able to hang it right there with my badges in my gaming area at home.
I just wanted to say that the forum badges were fantastic, and I can't thank you enough for making them happen year after year. I'm glad to hear that they were almost all picked up, and I'm very proud to have been involved in the tradition for three of my six years at PAX.
Thank you for your hard work and dedication, it really does mean a lot to a number of PAX-goers.
