Wammers: identify yourselves! [UPDATE: badges for handwritten ID will now be available!]

Recommended Posts

Super Wammer

I exhibited for the first (and to date only) time last year. I didn't realise until afterwards how many wammer I "know" online had popped in at some time during the day.

I shall be wearing my TheFlash T-shirt for ease of identification and I'd like to know I will be able to recognise other wammers.

I learned a new word a year or two ago: ""lanyard". It's one of those straps which hangs round your neck and it has a plastic holder attached for a name badge. Last year exhibitors had these. Are there any plans to provide these to attendees? Perhaps with a HiFiWigwam branded lanyard?

If everyone had the option to print a simple badge at home with Wam name and real (first) name on it, or even to write their name on a card on the day, it would help to oil the wheels of sociability.

Thanks in anticipation, yours obsequiously, etc etc.

This sort of thing. There follows a blank and some completed examples. What's not to like?

I have to agree with Nigel on this and I also have to say that at work I point blank refuse to wear my work pass round my neck I know that i have to have it with me at all times so I put it in my shirt pocket and can produce it if challenged . I refuse to wear it round my neck as I feel (rightly or wrongly) that it is a form of slave brand and part of the stupid corparate game many large compnaies seem to play .

The Wam Show is very different I do this and will be at the show because I really want to and love the experience . I am proud to be able to have a chance to let people listen to what i think sounds good and hear their view on it . So I will happily wear a badge that gives my Wam nmae and my real name so others can see who it is but I laso respect that many of the vistiors might not want to .

If you are wearing a name tag great it will help me to recognise people I have read comments by and in some cases commented in the opposite view. If not then please introduce yourself as you will be able to tell who I am and we can then have a good chat and even the odd drink . Please rest assured that with my current state of memory you are in no danger ten minutes after you leave i will have forgotten who you are will spend the rest of the time calling you Mate or Pal or Flower to disguise the fact I have forgotten your name .

Now do you see how useful bages are to old men like me .

Also useful for reminding yourself who you are at 3AM after the bar has closed...

Talking of which, adding the room number would be helpful for finding your way to your pit too :dunno:

I was at the show a few years ago and it was great to put faeces to names. In those rumbustious days it was entertaining to find that so many wammers in person were, thankfully, not at all like their on screen personas!

Oops. That was a Freudian slip; just before posting I had been pondering whether or not it was worthwhile having a service contract for my cesspit - oh the joys of living in the country.

I sometimes feel that my heducation was not a good grounding for forum life. :geek:

on the extra badge front we could have:

Beware, I am a measurist 

I love everyone, cos I am a subjectivist

And for dealers:

If I don’t sell it, then it is an effects box
