You guys were awesome. There were no fights, no equipment stolen, no disorder... PAX went as smooth as it could have possibly gone, and I wanted to thank everyone for it.

Also, a special thanks goes to those that post in the forums. You're the hardcore attendee- the convention is about the community and you're the most active in that regard. Thank you for helping us make PAX'05 a complete success.

    There can not be enough appreciation given from me to the PAX attendees who helped me out. After something of a transportation nightmare, I ended up with a smashed sculpture and no luggage. Everyone I talked to there hit me with a tidal wave of compassion, generosity, and Axe Body Spray, and I am eternally grateful.

    The concerts went off without a hitch. I've been to so many shows, as a photographer, that I've lost count, and this was one of the most professionally organized I've ever seen. The enforcers were strict enough to keep order but understanding enough to know that some rules are alright to bend in the name of keeping things moving.

    Bravo, you guys.

    This is why i wanted khoo's autograph. He is up there with gabe/tycho/porkfry. I did get gabes and tychos and porkfry's autograph as well. He did alot of work towards pax. I thought he was the main lead in the whole event? anyhow he is as important to pax as gabe and tycho.

    Thank you again for all of your hard work.

    Ps. Classic console night wants to become sanctioned. drop me a line sometime about it. it will get rid of those pesky people wanting to bring their own consoles into pax.

    Thanks for PAX! Us Alaskans had a blast!

    I didn't mean for that to rhym.. Anyway. It was awsome. I kinda missed the whole sleepover part that was going with PAX04 but 05 was better in the long run. More to do and all that jazz. I got peoples autographs and bought stuff and I picked up plenty of free loot.

    I didn't get to play in the hamster ball though :( It sucks not being 18 sometimes, but only a few months to go.

    We're hoping to have it available by November. They have over 70 hours of footage (they brought 4 cameras, plus the concert jib cam) so it'll definitely be a multi-disc set. Probably 4 or 5 DVDs.

    PS: thank you for being awesome. My favorite quote from last year was "Did you notice how everyone at PAX looked kind of familiar?" PAX is for the community, and the community is incredible. Each of the exhibitors pulled me aside and said the crowd was the best of any con, anywhere.[/url]

    Thanks to David and Brendan for the roomshare. I had a blast. Make that Peltier hot plate/cooling system, and cower before the dark future of WIFI *shudder* :D

    And a special thanks to all of my fellow friendly gamers of all types. It was great to reconnect with my fellow geeks/nerds/dorks/weirdos.

    P.S.

    Khoo, I know its a moot point by now, but I apologize for not being able to get you info on The Animation Show back earlier in the year. I didn't know the ticket details until the last minute. I'll be sure to get you guys tickets, when TAS 3 comes around.

    I completely agree with the "No, thank you!" sentiment. It was a great time, and that had pretty much everything to do with the PA staff and the enforcers.

    I genuinely felt that everyone involved wanted us to enjoy ourselves, rather than to get something out of us. Thumbs up, all the way.

    Robert,

    I'll let you know this in person, but I wanted to stand up and chime in on this thread, too. You did an amazing job. You were everywhere, and everywhere you were things just sort of worked themselves out. It's an envied art, and you are an obvious master.

    I looked through the pics I took of the proceedings to post in my article, and I discovered I have an accidentally great shot of you. I took a big background shot from the second floor balcony and you were racing through the first floor in front of the registration desk. You're a bit blurred but everyone else comes in sharp because you're moving about Warp 9.8 and everyone else was going about Warp 4.

    You and your staff made it so easy to do my job that I had plenty of time to have a boatload of fun. I'll be back for next year, you can bet.

    Thanks so much for everything,
    Colleen "The MomGamer" Hannon

    Were you the lady that runs Gamerdad?

    I think I remember loving that site for giving a fair and good review of San Andreas, you know, saying it's definitely not for kids but is a fantastic game.

    Sort of. ;)

    I don't run Gamerdad - I just write for them, and do some code-monkey work. It's run by a guy named Andrew Bub. He lives in Wisconsin so he went to GenCon, and since I live in Redmond I got to go to PAX. I think I got the better part of the deal.

    As far as GTA and it's ilk, that's what we're for. We don't want to moralize, but we want people to make informed decisions. I'm glad you liked that review - I think Andrew did that one because he stuck me with Tony Hawk Underground 2 and I told him it was his bloody turn.

    I don't want to jack Roberts thread here, though. He deserves some sort of very hardcore recognition for all the work.

    I'd like to join in the ranks of thanks-giving.

    Admittedly, before PAX05, I was never really into Penny-Arcade. I knew what it was and I visited occasionally, but it had never reached the coveted shrine that is my Bookmarks. When my friend approached me and told me that we're going, I was hesitant, mostly because we live in Chicago and it was halfway across the country...and I was out of PTO time at work. I decided to stop being a pansy and go with. After all, it's about video games, so it's gotta be good. When I returned home early Monday morning, I felt a genuine emptiness because PAX was over.

    While I was there, I had so much fun and enjoyed everything so much, I can only describe it as one giant family reunion of my 9,000 long lost brothers and sisters. I felt like I was home. Since then, I check PA every day and I'm going through the posts on these forums and I plan to participate on a continued basis. Needless to say, I will be going to all future PAX events, no matter the distance.

    So I thank you, the other PAX-goers, for showing me what I've been missing and for the sound of Bawls bottles falling over being burned into my memory. Thank you, the PAX staff, for putting on a fuckin' tits show and showing me that I am, in fact, a nerd...and it's fuckin' kickass!

    See you all next year.

    After seeing the pictures and reading about PAX04 I knew I had to come in 05. I'm so glad I did, that was the best con I've been to, hands down.

    Thank you to all involved, the weekend was a total blast!
