    How do the BYOC people factor into this? Because I never really lined up to get in since I was already in the BYOC when it opened.

    Hmm, if you were at the BYOC, go ahead and put yourself as lined up then.

    Khoo, you need to put the hours of each day up in the survey. People are lame and can't remember them.

    This is true. Since we all keep asking each other in IRC.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but it was:

    Fri 2pm - 3am
    Sat 10am - 3am
    Sun 10am - 6pm

    *Edit - It should be worth noting, I think, that the only reason I stood in line on Friday was for the concert wristband. Once acquired, I left the line to do other stuff.

    *Edit2 - Times Fixed

    @ElectricTurtle I dunno, I got out a lot. I didn't sleep at all Saturday. Then again a majority of that time was spent at private parties and other private ventures. The actual community stuff was still a major factor, pretty much my waking moments outside from Wednesday til Sunday night.

    I was in BYOC too, but I did follow your directions Robert. I'm looking forward to doing that again. I also didn't stand in lines otherwise that often. However that was more us forgetting to do stuff as we would get so caught up in TF2 as to not keep track of the time.

    Those were the official hours, but I recall on both Friday and Saturday night everything kinda shut down at around 1:30 (at least in terms of the freeplay stuff)

    I drove down from the north end each day so I had to get out of the 2 union square parking garage before they locked down at midnight (so these 'closing times' mean nothing to me I was home and drunk as a lord by then each time)

    Yeah, I share many of the sentiments already expressed. I spent so much time in awe and feeling like a kid in a mammoth candy store that I really can't clearly piece out time spent in specifics.

    Did my best though.

    I was entering in all of our pre-PAX goodness too when I re-read the question and realized it was asking about the PAX weekend alone. :P

    This is... not a very comprehensive questionnaire. But, I can only trust that there'll be some usable data.

    Yeah, it was all a blur for me as well, but I gave estimates.

    Upon giving the estimates, I realized that, in fact, I'd spent significantly more time doing pre-PAX activites than PAX itself. =)

    Which is really awesome... it means we have a strong core base of dedicated people who like hanging out with each other at the roots of PAX. =)
