    I swear after I went home to the apartment I was staying in on the Sunday I could hear you all screaming, I was only two blocks away from the centre and kept hearing cheers. At least I didn't miss out on anything :)

    If you all look at the end of the video towards the windows you'll see a guy wearing a purple shirt(Motocop Shirt), that's me. Didn't realize they were recording. Just thought they were taking photos. Oh yeah that guy in the Deadpool costume was awesome and plus the thing that can't be seen in the video was that the Deadpool cosplayer had bought 'Me undies' and were visible through the costume.

    the guardian did great this year. The first day was complete chaos, but I think that was just because there were way to many people that day. After that the last two days were great and the guardians really helped

    All the guardians fucking rocked it this year, your hard work does not go unappreciated! It's not easy keeping 60,000 people in check. Everyone handled the crowd and lines as best they could and when issues came up they were quickly on top of it, and if they didn't know the answer to a question they knew someone who did and got you to them. 


    Guardians, you make RTX happen, without you, it would be shit show.

    Thank you to all the RT Community Members for being a well behaved bunch. For as many tribulations and lack of "hardware" to get people in on Friday, everyone came together.


    To the Guardian fan club that was still waiting outside after 9 PM on Sunday, thanks for being supportive. You guys rock.


    I couldn't make it last year, but making it back for only my second RTX and second time as a Guardian, and first time Tech Guardian was a whirlwind experience. I honestly can't imagine attending any other way.


    To everyone from the community to the talented and giving RT staff, it was a pleasure. Thank you all!


    And that Ficus entrance...haha. Proud to be one of the 502. :) Now, the countdown begins to RTX'18.

    I had the honor of rooming with a Guardian this past RTX and he came back to the hotel room every day exhausted.  It is people like him and every other Guardian that make RTX awesome as it is! Even when things bring us down, *cough cough* metal detectors *cough cough* they were always there to keep the order and keep it fun.  Thank you, guys and gals, for everything you do and shout out to Evan B!

    This was first RTX and despite some setbacks on Friday, the Guardians made the whole experience great. I want to give a shout out to all of them especially the few guardians I sat with at Buffalo Billiards in the lounge. Seeing Matt getting teary eyed made me cry.


    I can't wait to come back next year, with better planning and arrangements. Spread your cheeks apart RTX 2018, here I come!!!

    This was my first RTX and I have to say, these are the best people I've seen in a long time.  Super knowledgeable, friendly, and understanding.  Having to put up with us (the con goers), the public, and the elements.  I have to give shout outs to Hall 1 staff keeping that huge group of people organized (and terrified of ever running when seats opened up!) from both seating to the Off Topic pregame "entertainment" that we provided ourselves with, all those involved in the great linecon that was badges and metal detector expo hall lines, and finally a huge one to "Papa" guardian who braved the elements to hand out the hundreds of wristbands to the general attendees!  Seriously, the Guardians rock!

The real highlight for me was some of the things that happened before and during the Sunday RWBY panel. That was amazing! Over all, a great experience. Thank you everyone who made RTX what it is!

Thank you to Mary ( @SailorTweek ) for leading all of these wonderful people and being such an awesome loveable person. Thank you to all of the Guardian team leads for giving direction and guidence. Thank you to all of the guardians every single one of you beautiful people who volunteered your time to help bring this wonderful commmunity together. I would like to personally thank and give a special shout out though  to a Guardian named Greg ( @G_Pie23 on twitter ) for going the extra mile for myself and others in ACC Hall 1 Level 1. Dude you ROCKED! He honestly made my time at RTX 150% more fun and memorable. Thanks my dude. See you all next year !

    So on the radio today I heard that a flight out of Austin had to divert back to Austin because a fight broke out between 2 passengers.  Maybe the Airlines could use some RTX Guardians?  You can keep order between a bunch of tween to 40 yr old and up fans airline security should be a breeze! lol

      It is! It can be very tiring since you're on your feet practically all day for 3 days straight, but you meet so many cool people, and actually get to hang out with them as opposed to just high-fiving in a panel line.


      If you're thinking about it, you should apply for next year. It's a blast.

    Every time this year that I had an attendee ask me what it was like to be a guardian, I would tell them all the same thing: it's like a drug. It's addicting and habit forming and it just makes you feel so good. This is only my second year, but that giant sea of green up there is my very large extended family. We laughed, we cried, we did a lot of dancing, and it was every smile on every attendee's face that made all of the long hours and aching muscles worth it. I love my RT fam, I love my Guardian fam, and I can't wait to see all of you again next year.


    Yaaaaaaaaaaasssssssss.

    RTX 2017 was a total blast, and we wouldn't have had it without the help of the guardians. They all did their best to make sure that everyone had a great time, and I even recognize some guardians I met there in the video They definitely deserve a huge thanks and this is certainly one of the best ways to go about it. Thank you, Guardians! I'll definitely be returning, and hopefully as one of you in the coming years.

I know that this video is to thank us, but thank you RT for giving us such rewarding jobs and thank you RT community for always making the Guardian job and RTX the most enriching experience each year. I can't wait to see all you radiant and soul fulfilling people at the next RTX (whether as a Guardian or attendee). Till next year you awesome nerds! :)
