I'm in the process of viewing sample DucKon 15 badges to see how they would look in various potential formats and with different badge art. To do this, I need to look at samples of various different types of badges, staff, security, guest of honor, dealer and regular member. My program for generating samples uses a number of people that I can quickly find, or already have found, in the database that will generate the five different types of badges. My sample badge for a regular member is Derrick's badge -- that is the badge for my own kid.
So I'm going through the badges, and the staff badge is OK, as is the security and dealer badges, but the regular badge comes up blank. So I go check the database, and sure enough, I never registered Derrick.
Now I'm stuck. Technically I'm passed the deadline for pre-reging people, or putting in staff. If I follow my own rules, and say that Derrick is (a very unhelpful) part of my staff I cannot actually put him in until at the convention, and if I try to get him a regular membership I should really pay the at-the-door cost.
I'll have to discuss this with the chair's etc. at the final meeting this weekend.3 comments - Leave a comment
