    Oh, man. The tradition continues, hehe. Every year we get a thread asking about that. Basically, the only way to now when the go on sale is to use twitter and stalk Official_PAX. Usually tickets don't go on sale in September, so your probably safe. You just need to have twitter on every device you have, set it for email and text alerts, and wait, wait, wait. And when you think you can't wait anymore, wait some more :) It wouldn't hurt to have friends looking out also.

    I am curious whether they will go on sale before or after Unplugged.

    Unplugged? Very likely beforehand. However before or after Aus is the thing that’s questionable.

    I would expect them before. Probably in October. But it can't hurt to turn on notifications now.

    The site was updated today to show that tickets will be avail soon. As well as setting the price to $TBA so def start up those notifications :P

    Crap, since when has the website ever been updated a full 205 days before the start of PAX East? Love the new site design, BTW. Has anyone had any trouble setting Twitter for text notifications. I had it set last year and had no problems. I thought that would remain this year, but I didn't receive the latest tweet about the Australia Omeganauts. Now i'm starting to spaz!

    i had it set last year to watch @official_pax and @paxcommunity .. well and any other related accounts to be honest.

    I got the notification but it sure wasn't instant ...

    I noticed on PAX South the addition of a Kids only badge for Sunday (It may not be new just noticed it). PLEASE add this to PAX EAST. It's a great idea. Also I see there is the ability to pre-purchase some swag. GREAT IDEA... add scarfs and hoodies and stuff as well. I'd imagine you sell more and alleviate some pressure on morning lines at the shows if people get it with their badges.

    Oh FYI, the pre-sale merch is all different from the merch sold at the show. We are still playing with the concept, and will continue to tweak it over the next years, but we would likely do it one way for a year, so each PAX gets pre-sale merch before we try it differently.

    The Kids only badge won't likely come to East anytime soon. Its an experiment at South because we have noticed a higher percentage of families coming to that show. I won't say it would never happen, but East is doing just fine without them, so we really don't have an incentive to do that there. And it adds another type of badge (or 4) that our badge security staff need to know and watch out for, which is a negative for us. We feel like PAX is still a heck of a bargain even if you have to buy a regular badge for your kids.

    Since they made it 4 days now if i had to guess its prob late october/early november now. At least in the 4 years ive gone to east its never gone on sale in september. Are you guys sticking with single day passes or going back to like a 4/3 day pass?. Im hoping it is the late october/early nov so i can recover from NYCC which is less than 2 weeks away.
