this is a friendly place, I don't understand why people don't post pics of themselves... guess they are afraid we will stalk them, LOL.

As far as nametags. They would be a good idea...even if we just had the write on ones, HI, MY NAME is...

Can someone bring in some name tags? Like the "hello my name is" type... I forgot the past meeting and will likely forget again. If someone just shows up with them then we'll have them. If need be the club can even reimburse the $3 it cost to buy them...

The best is when people introduce themselves as their screen name but not include their real name... :-P

Surely the club could spring for some of those cheap ones and hand them out when you sign in at the meeting. Or if someone has access to them somewhere, possibly donate a few.

Heck, I would almost settle for a roll of masking tape.

The pics are great, but I don't have a photographic memory, nor am I going to print out people's pics. Plus, not everyone who comes to the meetings is on the website.

I don't know why this isn't something that should be a part of every meeting.

Sign in, get a name tag, fill it out and then go mingle and make some new friends and find people you need to get up with for whatever reason.

I can't imagine the costs of those cheap sticker name tags being enough to break the bank.

I'm so bored, here's a link:

100 for $3.69 @ Office Depot.

I just ordered 6 packs. There are 40 per pack.
Hope you enjoy the fishy name tags.

Good job Alan. Little pricier than Office Depot, but definitely has more, ummm, flair?

Now, if you can just make it to the next meeting before it starts, so you can hand them out, lol.

Good initiative. Glad someone finally did something about this.

Thanks, I like to keep things fun. Fishy tags for a fishy club. LOL! I will be there to hand them out, but they have to fill them out.

The biggest problem is that people can change their screen names (and avatar, if we chose to put that on there).

I do have one idea, but it'll cost the club money. Let me do a little research and I'll see what I can come up with...

i say dont allow people to change their names...people should be accountable for what they say on the forum and if that person pisses of a bunch of people an easy escape would be to change your name and avatar. Just my 2cents i wouldnt allow it and on my old forum I ran we didnt allow it.

Let's RF tag all members and tattoo bar codes. Then we can give out scanners.

It'll just make it easier for the computers after Skynet goes online.

There's nothing wrong with just using these fishy tags (nice job Alan) forever. Cheap, if your screen name changes, you right the current old or both, etc. No need to overengineer this!

I agree. There are other things in the club that I'm sure the money would be better spent on. These name tags cost next to nothing and I think would work well. We just need something small to help with ID'ing each other at meetings. Nothing extravagant needed, IMO.

Kudos again to Alan for coming through.
