    I need some verbage for the bottom of the geek card. The fine print. Something like...

    This card entitles carrier to blah blah blah.

    Help, please [face_batting]

    Entitles the holder to: Answer questions with the number 42, swear in fictional languages (frell, frak etc...), wear in public, clothing that has gone out of style over 100 years ago and/or clothing that will not be in style for a 100 years, line up for a movie at least 24 hours before its premiere, know by name convention 'regulars' and to also be considered a 'regular', gratuitous use of Acronyms such as BtVS, AotC, LotR:RotK, XML, MYSQL etc... collect children's toys and maintain them in their original packaging, own dice that have more than 6 sides...

    I'll come up with more, but I've got to get ready for work.
    one of us and Haikukid like this.

    Is it worse that I was watching one of them yesterday?

    I thought they were going to be more credit card size? Hmmm, but badges would be nice for C5

    Yep, the geek cards are driver's license size. I'll try to post a few options here before the meeting.

    Although a badge would be fun, too. Can someone bring the badge to the meeting so I can see?

    Okay, here it is! Click the link above to see the first draft. It is a business card size and I cut some rounded edges on it.

    Please, please feel free to post in this thread suggestions for text, colors, sizing, anything. I'm looking to make this a group project. And I'd love to see what creative nonsense we can put together. If I make any changes today based on your posts, I'll bring the updated version to the meeting. I'll bring a big copy so we can see detail. And I'll bring an actual size copy so we can see if it's hard to read or what.

    Thanks!
