    I haven't been to all 10, but will happily wear the 10 year anniversary badge!

  • AlphonsisAlphonsis Registered User regular
    This year's badge is especially precious to me since this is also my 10 year PAXiversary! Sadly I was not a member of the forums in the early years.

    Yes!! A 10 year anniversary forum badge from my 10th year at PAX. How fortuitous!

    Here is the back of the badge as promised. Unlike in recent years it has no theme as such, just a thank you to everyone who helped make the forum badge an actual thing:

    Let me know what you think, I'm more than happy to tweak it :)

    It looks like a Comic Sans type font. I've always been a sucker for Comic Sans. :) It looks great. I look forward to getting one.

    No it's the official Penny Arcade font they use in their comic strips. Blambershot I think it's called.

    Well another year has passed and badges have been distributed. I am happy to say that the entire print run was collected, which is always a welcome sight. In previous years I have had to throw a lot of them away, but I think I now have the numbers about right.

    Shout out to @Aphelion and @bacon_avenger who I met while at PAX West 2018 and we had a good chat about the badges and how awesome the event was this year. I'll be back at PAX East 2019, but for those of you who only go to West, I'll see you all in 12 months.

    It was a pleasure and honor to finally meet you in person after having held a forum badge since '13, thank you again for making the badges happen!

    Argh. I totally forgot in the midst of working to pick one up. I'm glad they all got passed out, so I don't feel like "mine" was wasted. Can't wait to see next year's!

    As easy as that is to do, please don't. I do put a lot of effort into making these badges and it really just take just 10 minutes to go to BYOC registration and ask for a badge. The Enforcers there are really welcoming and love asking the questions I compose each year. Besides, they are really cool looking and you will get asked about them while wearing it.

  • IncarnadineIncarnadine Registered User regular
    That's why I'm glad they were all given out, even if I didn't get one this year. I'll have that blank spot in my collection to remind myself next year.

  • ctiwolfctiwolf Registered User regular
    Thanks again for doing this. I did catch a little gruff because i snapped a screenshot of the answers so they tried to make up questions and am completely horible with trivia
