PAX 2009 Ticket Name (will not be printed on your PAX badge)

edited February 2009 in PAX Archive
In my exuberance to pre-register for PAX (I've been saving and working towards attending for the last two years now), I sort of blew through the registration process, not quite understanding what I was doing, only anxious to secure tickets as quickly as possible. I then signed onto the forums for the first time ever and read a brief discussion about what to enter in the Ticket Name field, which appears to be well suited for a nickname or some such.

I know it is an incredibly lame request and quite an imposition, but if one were to have entered something in the Ticket Name field in their haste and were interested in requesting it be changed to something more desirable, how might one go about making such a request?

Having my first and last name crammed onto the badge just seems like a bad idea all-around :oops:

    Your name won't be printed on the badge - sorry.

    The name you put on won't be printed on the actual badge

    Oh! I'd gotten the impression it was. What's the point of the Personalized Name Printed on Ticket then?

    That... is a question for the ages. Or somebody who actually knows.

    seems their FAQ is clear about the subject

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: Will the "personalized names" show up on my printed badge?
    A: No, the personalized names are for your convenience in keeping track of the confirmation receipts. The badges will not have individual names printed on them.

    DMMagic - it's a common observation, so don't feel like you're alone. It's a limitation with the registration vendor we're using this year... we're trying to get that hardcoded out, but yes, like proximity said, your name won't be on the actual badge.

    I hope that PAX East will have personalized badges, that'd be nice.

    Awesome :-D Thanks everyone. My full name weighs in at 19 characters (with the space between first and last), so it's sometimes extra-awkward on badges, hence my concern.

    Now I can return to just being excited about PAX ^_^

    Personalized badges are great and all, but it makes it difficult to re-sell them. Say you register now, something comes up in June and you can't go. Since your name's not on the badge, you can probably sell it for at least face value.

    If you happen to get one of the forumer badges, you will at least have a space to write your name in. Hopefully that will make up for it!

    I too was disappointed to find the name would not be on the badge. I hope that's something that will change in the future.

    May I suggest that to overcome this problem you make sure you get your hands on the PAX Forum attendee badge I'm creating for PAX'09? As an active member of these fine gathering of like minded folk who like to share their views on all things PAX related, you stand a good chance of getting one. Unlike last year they will have a space for you to write your name on them. They will also come in a nice plastic wallet that will hang behind your PAX pass from the same lanyard. At least that's the plan anyway.

    To find out more read this thread.
