    Sorry it took so long, but...

    HERE IS THE VOTING FORM!
    Vote Now

    Please only one response per person.

    Voting will be open until Sunday @ 11:59pm (we moved it back by a day since we weren't able to get it posted until tonight).

    Remember, we are only doing one round of voting, due to time constraints. We promise that next year will be back on track like past years, but this is what we have to work with for South 2020.

    Ribbed edges, both painted and non-painted versions, and a Black Nickel finish.

    Thank you all so much for voting! I'll be sending this information to Kiddercorp today so that we can get the ball rolling on getting these coins made.

    Sorry I was away for all of this, but it looks like y'all did an amazing job without me. See y'all in January!

    So, Kiddercorp is currently looking over the artwork and commissioning it into the official coin proofs. One slight change that has occurred is the finish. We have been told by several sources that the Black Nickle finish simply looks bad. Another PAX coin was made with this finish, and they won’t be choosing that finish again. So, in the interest of having a good looking coin, we are switching to the next-highest voted finish: Antique Bronze.

    I’ll keep y’all updated and we’ll post the proofs when they’re ready. Also, once orders are ready to be placed, we’ll start a new thread for them. Be on the lookout!

    We're wrapping up the artwork process. Once it is done, we will get the order forms up for y'all to order your coins! Please start spreading the word! We really need to get these into the hands of at least 100 people.

    I was going to create a new thread for this, but I don't really want to muddy the forum's waters. So, here are the production proofs and the order form! Please share this with all your friends going to PAX South! Let's get these coins into as many peoples' hands as possible!

    Thank you so much for posting this! I totally forgot to do so.

    Here are the numbers, so far:

    12 x Non-painted
    21 x Painted

    Two things to remember:

    1) Kiddercorp orders these in batches of 100, for both versions. So, we really want to try to get as close to that as possible so they aren’t left holding the bill. They usually keep a few extras, just in case people have late orders or are trying to collect past coins. However, we don’t want them to have too many extras, because then they just become useless to everyone.

    How can you help? Share the crap out of this post! I’m posting this stuff to Discord, Reddit, and Facebook, but y’all probably know way more PAX-ers than we do. So, word-of-mouth the hell out of this!

    2) The PA forums will be going into their usual downtime in the coming days, which last for a few weeks. I believe it’s to perform maintenance on the forums, as well as to give mods a break. When that occurs, you won’t be able to find this thread until January. Just keep that in mind if you haven’t ordered your coins yet. The order form will still be up; you’ll simply have to go to the above mentioned sites to find it. You can also DM me directly if needed.

    Thank you all for the support to @LadyDeath and I. We really appreciate it!

    Have a very Merry Christmas!

    which link? I do see one paragraph which i assume was accidentally copypasta'd from the unplugged form, but the link above looks pretty clearly like a form for south 2020.
    https://forms.gle/K6b3hjaDtv8vt32X8 is the link I followed

    @crashmurphy see above posts, there's some unplugged copypasta in your south :)

    Super weird! Yeah, I know the form we’re using was provided by @ArcSyn. I don’t think I dorked it up, but I could be wrong. I’ve checked the links on these posts and they all seem to goto the correct form.

    @DanQ is there a specific link that you’re using? If so, can you tell me which post it is so I can correct it?

    @crashmurphy I think they mean this paragraph in the order form top text.

    So any idea on expected arrival date on coins?

    Normally, Kidder tried to get them to us before South. However, I think it all just depends on when the minimum is reached.

    I will reach out to them this week to see what they say.

    dkmbNgP.png
  • crashmurphycrashmurphy Registered User regular
    Here is the latest from Kidder, regarding shipping estimates:
    My goal is always to have the coins delivered to you all prior to the event.

    The estimated factory shipping date for your coins is Tuesday January 7th.

    I should receive the coins here at our office by Friday January 10th.

    I will ship the orders that have been placed out when we receive the coins here.

    If I ship them all out on Friday Jan 10th then everyone should be receiving the envelopes in the mail on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday (Jan 13-15) depending on where they live.

    Thank You and have a great Christmas.

    Just got mine in the mail. Sadly I had to cancel everything on Sunday due to financial reasons, but these are by far my favorite coins we've ever done for South. They'll make a nice reminder of what could have been and I'll see y'all in 2021!

    Just wondering, the minimum order is supposed to be 100 right? What happens if it isn't met?
