Wow this has been crazy. Thank you all for participating and enjoying yourselves, without everyone's support this would have never taken off like it did. More directly I'd like to thank the assistance of Pure Buttons, lordthanda, Moe Fwacky, jonxp, Big Red, the rest of the excellent Enforcers, whoever the hell actually built the case, Recruit, and the Sheraton Security, We've learned a lot this year on how to better organize this for the next coming PAX, and I hope to see everyone playing again. I have several special ideas floating in my head that I'm going to work on during the next year.
For those new to this, if you haven't ordered your buttons yet, then you most likely not recieve them in time for PAX. Sorry, try again next year, we'll still be friends.The concept:
Alright, here's the idea guys. We need a form of identification for forumers at PAX. As Moe has suggested, custom made buttons with our name/avatar or whatever would be a great option, but to extend this idea and make it more Penny Arcade-ish I suggest that each get a bunch of buttons and trade one for one when we meet each other. Thus making it a game of "gotta catch them all".Frequently asked questions:Q. How will I know if I've gotten all the buttons?
There will be a document made containing all the artwork and forum names so you know who you're trading with, and who you have left.Q. Cool! How do I get my stuff on it?
[STRIKE]Easy, fill this form out. Include either the original artwork or a picture of the finished button (I suggest original artwork only, because we can crop it down, but this is up to whoever will be doing the printable checklist. Please let me know, and I'll change it!).[/STRIKE] The form for the check off list is closed. If you didn't add your name then you are too late.Q. I don't see my name/pic in the OP list. Oh noes, what do I do!
If you think you've been overlooked then send a PM to redhalo. He's slow to update and smells funny, but he will get you added.Q. I ordered my buttons, move me to the "Invested Players" list now!
Pics or it didn't happen. Seriously. With the number of people playing and the ease of anonymity it is likely and known for people to want to be moved on word alone when nothing was done on their part. Also, this is to motivate people into participating more thoroughly since the idea is to bring us together socially.Q. How do I get a button? What are these "bonus buttons
The buttons fall in to two categories, the avatar or "main" buttons, and the "bonus" variety. While there are no set rules for trading them, these general guidelines are encouraged:
- Avatar buttons should be traded for other Avatar buttons, with no challenges or criteria expected to be fulfilled other than you are both Buttoneers.
- Bonus buttons may (or may not!) have special criteria for receiving them, and may go to people outside the button game who fulfill the criteria. This could be a challenge ("What is the flightspeed of an unladen swallow?"), a requirement ("You must be a member of the CEOs of America Club"), or one may just ask for one (remember to say "Please").Q. I want to make people stand on their head, nude, while singing "Yankee Doodle" to receive my buttons! Can't I do that?
It is perfectly within your rights, but don't expect many people to trade their buttons back with you.Q. With 55,000+ people, how will I find you all to get my trade on?
Many if not most of us will be attending various community ran events. Feel free to stop by the Pre-PAX Dinner, the Pre-PAX Movie, Pre-PAX Pubcrawl, or the Pre-PAX Breakfast. We'll be there in droves.Q. I want to make sure I get EVERY SINGLE BUTTON I can, will there be a Buttoneer meetup?
YES. We plan to meet immediately following the closing of PAX in the Sheraton Hotel's Lobby. We'll be easy to find, there's gonna be a lot of buttons around. We can finish off our trade lists, and say our goodbyes.Q. You said this is a game! How do we know who won?
Everyone is a winner! Especially you! You're so special, you know that?Q. I heard about some secret button project that would be for...
HUSH! That is not to be spoken of here. See BigRed at the start of PAX (he'll be near/in the BYOC area) and he'll take care of you. Bring your buttons. Please do give him time to check all of the BYOCers in before you storm his location.Q. Will I be able to fly with my buttons. Are they considered an instrument of death?
Participants to look out for:I will add button pics as people post them in this threadButton pictures 
I finally stopped by the airport here and talked to the TSA. 1' -1.5' buttons are not classified as an instrument of death even if you have a 100, and can be carried on or checked (they did say that depending on the TSA Agent you may be asked [forced at gun point] to check the buttons).
But remember this only applies to people whose flight originates in the US. If you are flying into the US with buttons make sure you check with your TSA equivalent before bringing them on a plane. The TSA people here also highly suggested that you check with US Customs (contact via your local embassy) before you try and bring them into the country (they indicated that the problem isn't with the button it's with what you could be hiding in the button).
Recap: If youâ€™re in the US you can fly w/ buttons, if youâ€™re not your probably better off mailing.

Anyways, I just got home from vacation... I can't wait to see my buttons... they are in my dads car lol... AND supposedly I should be getting some of my bonus buttons in the mail today, so I will post pictures if that does happen
Yeah, lets not. I was tired of coming home from work and having 3 new pages to go through (not an exaggeration by the way). :P
And, since I failed to mention this really early this morning, don't worry Costa, you, Strangemusic, and of course Lyanth herself are all on my special LHH list.
Also. Just now realised that I had Soups name and stuff so I'm gonna fill out the form for him. If he is repeated on there, Thanda, my bad.
BTW, ordered some bonus buttons a few days ago as well.
WCTT 2008 baby!
Also, some of my friends are not providing updates for some reason- Hatter received his buttons, and Kilgore hasn't even registered. I don't know what their deal is.
Edit: 130? Wow. Well, looks like not many people will be getting my buttons. I've got 64 Dr. Faustus, and probably about 50 'I am Giant' buttons.
The twin suns sink beneath the lake,
The shadows lengthen
Yeah i'm probably only going to get 49 other buttons
Same, and only 49 other people have a chance to get them from me... so that makes it hard for the people that want all of them ;_;
YOU GUYS ARE MAKING ME FEEL GUILTY! NOW I'M TEMPTED TO BUY MORE! ;_;
As mentioned in the last few pages or so in the other thread, once the List is completed; highlight or emphasize the buttons you want more and set those aside.
Yay, Im special Oh and you can call me Lennon... or LT
...I dubbed you Costa, already, though! >.<!! :x ...Fine...
As long as we're stating names, my name is Faustus, and you are free to refer to me as such.
I think moe said that in the spirit of spiritedness or something he'd extended the registration to the tenth. Also, depending on where you live, you may still be able to get the buttons in time. I live in the Seattle area, and I got mine in just under ten days, no rush shipping or anything.
The twin suns sink beneath the lake,
The shadows lengthen
...Blame American Gothic for my obsession over this man...
It's still cheaper to use Purebuttons with a rush on the order than it is to use those guys... Purebuttons=Pure win
Oh, and look what came in today:
Im still waiting for the rest of them
In the other thread I asked if anyone was planning for next year already
I hope we do it again! I didn't get to make my pin this year because of time constraints so I had a buddy help me out.
I'm coming to you first.
haha, yeah, those are one of my bonus buttons, so theres only going to be 25 of them, and I'm not sure the stipulations yet :P
Both of them are Doctor Who-ish.
And this one.
I'll gladly trade you a limited edition GGI button, for the Ring of Who's! I also rather like the Dalek one. I want them both!
Well, I will be doing both question and answer style stuff for either and also totally willing to trade as well!
*Keels. Dies. WANTS BOTH*
I am willing to hand over an LHH Button for one of those. (Maybe both since you are super-hot like that. ...So I've heard BA state... *Shifty-eyes; avoiding a beat-down from BA for adding words in mouth*)
I've only ordered 100 buttons - looks like I need to get more.
HOW DARE Y... Wait... well.... okay yeah, he is XD
Oh you... tee hee.
