Hello kind people of the Penny Arcade Forum. It's your good pal, Nfan10039 here once again with some exciting news.
I know it's a little early this year, and that PAX East is still happening, but the form for PAX West 2018 is live. Since it's up early, I thought we could have more time for ideas so that we can have the best ideas come around for this year's coin. As always, this form allows for multiple submits, so don't be afraid to post more than one idea. There is also a slot to insert your username if you so wish. I'm not quite living in Seattle yet, and may not even move there at all. Life is a fickle pickle. Anyways the link for the new suggestion form is https://goo.gl/forms/AZVWegb7C6PkuB5D2
. Also, I've come down with a case of strep throat, which I am taking penicillin for. So, until next time, enjoy PAX East and stay healthy.

Hello once again fine people of the PAX Forum. Nfan10039 here once again with some challenge coin news.
The ideas form had 14 responses from all of you, but some of you submitted more than 1 idea with your one response. We ended up with 16 gaming related ideas and 17 ideas for the Seattle area side. The voting phase is now done.
So if you guys have not done a challenge coin yet, you might be asking yourself what comes next? Well, now it's time to vote on which imagery you'd like for each side of the coin. I have made the selection process more fun by allowing you to select up to three choices, since most of you will be most likely voting for your own. We had some great ideas, so please take your time as only the top three from each section will be making the final cut. I have also made it so that only one response is allowed from each person, so no silly business. The link to the form is located here
. So last time I told you about my strep throat, which has disappeared thankfully. However, spring allergies are here now, so it's like only my sore throat went away... How exciting is it that PAX West tickets will be on sale soon! Make sure to set your notifications up and stuff. I know I'm hella looking forward to it this year!

Hello. Sorry I didn't get around to updating this on the weekend. Infinity War happened, and by the time I got home it was 3AM. None of my friends showed up, so I'm going to be in an awful mood this week. I'm even thinking of unfriending most of them. I always expect the best if no one responds, so I have to change my way of thinking again slightly. People make me so mad sometimes.
Anyways, enough about my personal life and on with the Challenge Coins. Voting period 1 is now closed. Again, I wish to thank everyone for participating in the first voting round. We ended up with 30 responses, and had a tie for the gaming side of the coin, so we will be having four selections possible for the final round of voting. The Seattle side had three stand out winners and will be moving on to finals. (Then Grands, then Grand Finals, then Grand Final Finals. LOL
(Those are not actual rounds of voting in case you thought I was serious.)) Lastly, since this is the final round of voting, there are a few more things to pick including the finish of the coin and size of the coin. Only the top selection from all areas will be in the final product of the coin.....so take your time in making the choices. I'm limiting responses to only one per email address(and please don't make more email addresses, just so you can vote more times). Have a great couple of weeks and this voting form will close on May 19th(2 weeks from when I was supposed to close the first one). The form is located HERE(CLICK HERE)

Hello everyone who is viewing this thread. I am here to announce that voting closed late last night and that work has begun on the design process of the coins. I'm hoping to finish the first draft on Monday. Ever since 2016, the coins can come in either color or normal and I'm glad to announce that this will be returning for this year. Once you folks are happy with the coin design, the order form will be going up and the design sent in to Kiddercorp (the company that produces the challenge coins). Here's hoping that I was early enough this year, so that everyone can have their challenge coins in hand before PAX West is here. Also, there will be an option to pick them up in Seattle. Stay tuned for the design coming to you very soon. Thread will be updated with a new title when first draft hits.

Here are the first drafts for both the gaming and Seattle side for the coin. I think they out fairly nicely, but I'm always open to comments and suggestions. I'm not sure why the image sizes aren't the same, but I don't believe that it should matter too much when they hit production.

Well, this is option 3 of the gaming side. I think everyone here is in agreement that SkeleVader's Pink Elephant works best. I'll give the lovely people here a chance to give some suggestions, and then I will open one last set of votes after E3 which will run for a week. This vote will determine which design the community members want for the coin this year. This also means that all designs are final unless someone brings up a valid argument as to something that should be changed.

Greetings everyone! I hope all of you are doing well and enjoyed E3. I'm a little sad that basically all that was at Nintendo's E3 was Smash. However, it looks to be like the ULTIMATE (pun intended) version.
As promised, here is the link to the gaming side art voting form. https://goo.gl/forms/ecCzuRM82cLaTt8r2
For all of you who don't or can't read this, a link will also be posted on the first post. I look forward to seeing your response and finally getting this to the coin makers. Have a great week!
