On Saturday September 5th 2009, this happened.
More after the jump.
The answer eventually did come to me though: the community, which is something that I think we can all agree best sums up Destructoid. The amazing people who read the site, post in the forums, write community blogs, play games with each other and have NARPs, along with the amazing individuals who make it all possible. THAT is what makes Destructoid such a special place. It’s why I turned from a lurker to a member two years ago, and continue to come back day after day.
So with a month to go before PAX, I got the picture printed out, and picked up several silver parcel markers for people to sign it with. I didn’t get it framed though, as you can just imagine the difficulty of carrying around something that large versus just rolling it up and putting it in a tube. As PAX drew closer I got more and more worried about it. What would people think? What if something happened to the picture before I got to PAX? Would everyone be cooperative in signing it? What if someone is mad that I didn’t get a picture of them? What if the markers were bullshit and ruined the picture? Lots of things were just eating at me, which wasn’t helped by real life issues that came up right before I left.
