    It's an interesting idea to personalize the badges. I'd like to request mine be Master_Cypher (or Cypher for short). It's my gamertag.

    The front of the badge has a space to write your name on it and on the back are the names of everyone who contributed to the design. It's not logistically possible for me to have a unique badge printed for every forum member.

    I think what he means is he wants his 'forum name' to be different than what his actual forum name is in the section at the bottom of the back.

    I feel this is out of the intended idea of the badge (No one will know that is the same person if they ever go to look, as it isn't their Forum member name) , but that is up to your discretion.

    When my badges arrived, I noticed a blank space on the front with a marked outline. Is this for the forum badge?

    That has zero to do with the forum badge. The forum badge is a completely separate badge for show and other people on the forum here would recognize. It doesn't relate to the Bobcats at all.

    What he said, that spot is for free pronoun stickers that you will be able to get somewhere (merch booth i think or info booth).

    We always get queries about PAX passess (bobcats) in this thread at some point :) I'm tempted to call them something else, but why mess with tradition?

    If you're talking about these pronouns, they are official Pinny Arcade pins and are not free. But considering how most people buying a set only want 2 of the 4, it's pretty easy to get these without purchase.

    Both designs are great, but I'm sad I missed the chance to vote for #2. I guess this means I have to go to PAX East next year (: Awesome work, kropotkin!

    Those are the pins, but there are stickers available which is what is being discussed. I believe the stickers *are* free, at the info booth. If one already has a pin, they could put it there though.

    And also, like was said, that is for the official pax badge (ticket to get in). This thread is about the forumer badge which is just a fun way to show other attendees that you are a user of these forums, and get a cool design in the process. Has nothing to do with admission.

    The final versions of the PAX West 2019 Forum Badge are now complete:

    FRONT

    BACK

    You will be able to collect these are the front desk of the Pre PAX Board Game Night at the Sheraton from 4pm onwards or from the BYOC registration desk at 12pm on Friday 30th August up until 4pm on Monday 2nd September. The BYOC registration desk is located in the Annex, just below the Expo hall entrance to WSCC.

    Remember, if you see someone wearing a Forum Badge, say hello to them. Also if people ask about them, explain how they came into being. As for me, I'll be wearing it from the time I reach Seattle and it is worn with my media PAX Pass as I am repping for Cane and Rinse.
