    It's the return of the forum name badge contest.

    There will be thousands of people at Celebration, and in order to recognize people from the forum we would like to have a name badge.

    Guidelines
    • The design should be a template so that people at the forums can download it print it themselves.
    • There should be space to write your name on it
    • The text "Jedi Council Forums" should be somewhere on it.

    Post your submissions in this thread. Last day to add a submission is February 28th. After that we will have a poll in the forum to vote on our favorite. The Mod Squad has the right to withdraw any submission that isn't appropriate.

    The winner will receive the great honour of seeing the name badge used by other people, but also forum VIP-ship from the announcement of the win to the end of Celebration.

    As always try to be original, we don't want the name badge to be mistaken for the official badges.

    I'd rather just use my username so people would know who I am. Can I do that? I'm not much for designs though. But I could definitely wear a name badge with my username on it. We ought to have a mixer where everyone does that. That'd be way cool if a bunch of users from this entire board got together and did that.

    Maybe when it gets closer we could at least organize a Celebration forum meet up at some point during that weekend. I've thought about that before, so I'll gauge everyone's interest a little later on to see if people would actually show up. Maybe when the traffic here is booming in mid-March would be a good time to make a thread for it, perhaps once the schedule is out so we could find an appropriate time that everyone can agree on. It shouldn't be too hard to find a time and location within McCormick, maybe for a lunch time meet up or something. Just throwing the idea out there for now. In Orlando somebody picked me out of a crowd after reading a message I wrote here about what I'm wearing during the first day line up, so that was kind of cool.

    In our mod forum I had suggested spaces for username and country you've come from. Don't know how many people might want the latter.

    This sounds good and interesting. You say it is the return of forum badge contest... is there a link to previous examples that ended up being selected for guide examples. Also, can you submit more than one entry if there are different ideas. @MotivateR5D4 I like your username idea... I may design one with the silver and white color scheme of our recent colors.

    Hah! Man I don't even remember how we got to meeting up. Glad we did though, looking forward to it in Chicago.

    The guy I referenced was a lurker who wasn't a registered member, at least that's what he told me. He literally picked me out and asked if I was MotivateR5D4. Meanwhile, you were too busy being all VIP and couldn't bother with us commoners during the line up. :rolleyes:

    I met Obi Anne at a London Celebration, and CrazyMike (Collecting Mod) and a few other regulars over the years when they were in London.

    I actually found you in the line on my way to the exclusive store time on Wednesday to taunt you with my VIP. :p You also briefly introduced me to @Padme501st on Sunday.

    I definitely remember hanging out for a little while on Sunday. And then going over and talking to @Padme501st, which was really cool. But yea, I totally forgot about how we met initially.

    I definitely think the badges should have space so you can have your forum name on it. I will see if I can find some of my old badges, if I can't find the old threads about it.

    And you are free to submit several ideas.

    I remember @MotivateR5D4 finding me in the Wednesday outdoor line soon after I got in line due to my backpack (I think? Lol). It was fun saying hi to each other basically every day (except Friday I think) while we were stuck in lines, lines and more lines. Definitely a must in Chicago

    I remember at CVI there was a forum party on like a Thursday night and we had printable badges. The one I had was ROTJ Leia I believe with my username on it

    Nice, thanks for organizing the contest!

    That would be cool! I really enjoyed meeting JCers at CE in 2007. I remember running into people in '16, but don't recall there was a specific get together.

    I threw this together. I'm sure someone else will do better. Feel free to steal the concept if you'd like.

    This is a prelim design. Any suggestions would be welcome. I might do a couple different ones, with different ideas, including one building on the concept @star_wars_is_good shared. I was wondering if I should do any with space for our avatars as well as the name ? In the social thread someone mentioned about recognizing those easy. What do ya think ?

    Great job! Nice idea with the skyline. It even works as a callback to our Family Feud team. Minor nitpick, having both the tfn logo and spelling out theforce.net is a little repetitive.

    As far as the avatars go, not everyone is going to be tech savvy enough to be able to add their own avatar. I'd keep it as simple as possible so anyone who wants to print one out and write in their name can do so with ease.

    @star_wars_is_good I agree with what you said. I am thinking logo only even though the squares don't actually say The Force.net. Also right about the avatar, better to keep it easy.

    That's beautiful. I would it with TheForce.net spelt out instead if the logo though.

    Updated prelim design. Added The Force.Net back, though not at the top because on the badges I think I should allow a blank area for a clip at the top for the lanyard attachment. These are prelim designs so any change suggestions are welcome.

    I really like that. Btw, my post before this is a good example on why you shouldn't post in your bed, on your phone, at 7 am on a Saturday morning.

    I like the last one with outlined TFN. The skyline fits in great!

    Sorry for the double post, here is what I threw together. Feedback is appreciated. Wasn't sure if I should got for spelling of TFN or the boxy logo.
    Also, I've just binge-rewatched a lot of Rebels, and it occurred to me that JCers are basically a bunch of Fulcrums. ;) Hence the Fulcrum symbol for the back side, if people wanna spice it up and have a backside of the badge.
