We should all have some way to identify each other when we're not at the Swap Meet table. For example, we could all affix labels like this to our shirts:

In past years, we've written our Scioly.org usernames on our nametags/clothing (as Kokonilly suggested), or something like that. It's fairly subtle, but pjgscioisamazing (back when he used to actually be active on the boards) and I actually did meet... I think smartkid222 (although I could be misremembering who it was) at Nationals in Georgia this way.

While this doesn't directly identify you as a Scioly.org user, anyone who spends enough time on the boards will recognize the usernames of other active users.

Also, I have a feeling the Ward Melville contingent will be fairly visible either way (cough, paleonaps).

I'm not sure how you'd have met smartkid222 - I don't think Hicksville has made nationals, let alone cracked top 10, in C NY
2010: 5th in NYS
2011: 4th in NYS
2012: 3rd in NYS

Maybe I'm thinking of someone else... My best guess would be that we met smartkid222 at States and someone else at Nationals, and I'm getting them confused.

So how about this? I'd be willing to wear this and put my name on it somewhere.

For the record, this definitely existed and there was a poster. It was in front of/below the 1950's thing (if you looked, there were red things on the outer part of the area with decades).
So yes; the table was up and running, complete with poster. From the forums, bear, penclspinner, robotman, rocketman, Dox, luo, and I (probably others too) were all there at some point (though not all at the same time).
