Our group that was assembling didn't run across any failed names, at least while I was there.

The fail names are all awesome... I'm going to have to keep an eye out so I can internally smirk when I see one... ^_^


I'll call one out. Sorta.
Last year we ran across a badge for "A**hat PropMonkey" It became FailHat PropMonkey. This became prophetic because the PropMonkey wound up getting his prop confiscated for a weapons violation. Twice.

I just...couldn't..help..wondering if it was our fault for changing the badge name. :)
This is my signature. It is only one line.

Last year, I thought I heard someone say a fail badge got changed from TheRapist (therapist wouldn't have been so bad if they just didn't cap it)

stupid people with rude names x.x

I'm sure they were hoping that would slip by the staff.

do you think that this might incourgage more people to choose an inapropriate badge name in the future, just so that it says "I FAILED!!" on it? lol, it might actually cause more problems next year...

Well they could just do that on their own really, if they wanted a fail name, just to make people wonder what name they originally were supposed to have.

If someone wants a "fail" name it would probably be best for them to do it on their own. You don't want to get in trouble with the con or something. =P

That's what I was getting at actually. Was some people may put something like that on their own.

Since I looked at the badge info of the registration page, I guess it's safe to say that I didn't get relegated to the Fail group. I'd be much too embarrassed to go if that happened. Thpough a name like Failcakes is kinda cute...

no the labels were printed alphabetically they were printed into a large box they were put together in no real order as the staffers grabbed them. So what ever ones were grabbed were done and mailed.

My sister made our group name poohead. I hope this doesn't count as inappropriate? I'm pretty worried about it now that I know about the Fail Club.

X.X I never even thought that people would make inappropriate names! Considering not that many people actually *see* what your badge says except staff members. The only badge names I saw other than my friends were the ones that the people in line in front of me got (because I was snooping ^.^) I can say this year, I'll be paying much closer attention (though I am blind as a bat and without glasses or contacts >.<)

Ok so to answer the one question that has been brought forward on if you registered first you will get your badge first. You should but no promisis. The labels printed in alphabetical order but they get tossed in to a box and the staff just pull a large number of them and put them on badges then go and grab more. My goal is to have half of the mailed badges doneand sent out today (thats 2500 badges doneby 10 people).

This is interesting. My Fiancee whom lives with me pre-registered *AFTER ME* got his badge today and i'm still waiting on mine...

What's up with that? Is there any order they are sent out in? (sorry don't feel like sifting though this entire thread to get my answer)

I'm still waiting on mine. My friend got hers (lucky). And to attest to the random-ness of the mailings, my friend's dad got her badge, while she didn't. xD Same address and everything. Oh, the lols.

I'm so excited! And MAAAAJOR props for stuffing/sending all those envelopes! You guys rock.
