Mine is in the 290ks. This is my first gen con.
These are the badges that I found:
1990 was the earliest I found, but was not my first year. #10180xxx
1999 I was an exhibitor, VIP # 70xxx
2002 I was also an exhibitor, #86xxx
2011 and 2012 I was # 34xxx
2016 I was # 248xxx
I have no idea why my numbers are all over the place like that. Maybe being an exhibitor for a few years threw things off? Or a different address?
I have badge #1.... as in, it's the only badge I have ever had for Gen Con... I just keep renewing it year after year.
I'm in the 90(k) range... been coming since 13
Low 8xxx. This will be year 13, all in a row.
Attending since 2011. My badge is 6X,XXX.
I've been attending since the late 80's and I'm barely under 5 digits.
My badge is 1xx.
Remember back in like 2007? They introduced the RUBY registration system and we all got new numbers.
They posted in the old forums that the system was now live and we could all make new usernames. So, old forumites got first crack at the new system and have the lowest numbers beyond Gen Con staff themselves.
Badge #5xxxx. First GenCon was in 2011.
First time so I'm at +275K
My badge number is in the 030-040 range
Mine is in the hundreds range, not bad
66XX - going since 2001.
19K-20K First Con Was 2007...not stopped since!
I feel your pain, NASCRAGMan; my number is only barely over 1,000, but I remember feeling some tiny amount of self-consciousness over how "high" it was for a couple of years because I want to say I had a lower number on the old system. Or something. It has been too long to be 100% sure of anything, but I guess I can be amused now that I know it will be qualifying as a fairly incredibly low number, per Big12Cowboys' comment about getting comments for his 4-digit number, haha.
(I have only been going since 1997, not that this has much bearing on anything, other than a combination of my infinite love for Gen-Con and my infinite nerdness combining to give me a low number)
