Knowing Me, Knowing You


The number of IUC members is slowly beginning to creep up and not all of our new members have blogs. This is ok but how will we recognise each other out there in the world?

We’ve thought on this and decided that we need cards, all of us. Now, we don’t have pockets, so as we are living in the digital age, we’ve decided that online IDs should be sufficient (of course you can print yours out if you so desire).

So here are the first two:

Say “cheeeeeeeese”!

What do you think? Would you like personal IDs for your blogs/wallets/fridge door/human’s forehead instead of just the current generic IUC member badge?

If so, we will put copies of your cards on the members’ page so that we can all check each other out (regardless of whether you or your human has a blog to link to).

Not bad for a mug-shot.

We’ll need a nice front facing photo of you (the relevant part will be resized to 85 x 100 pixels to fit on the card) and we need to know roughly where you are. You don’t have to give a town or city – we’ve put ‘Sergipe, Brazil’ which is the state we live in (for instance you could specify ‘London’ or ‘S.E. England’ or just ‘U.K.’).

Try to sit still while your person takes your photo. I know some of you will find this hard, but please do try. A nice, clear and in-focus photo will look much better for your mug-shot…and you do want to look good, don’t you?

Member no. will be based on order of joining.

      I just got it, thanks. Would you like me to use the photo from your Cat chat button? It’s a very nice picture of Cody.

      Cody’s ID is on the member page. I hope you both like it.

    Thats a great idea. I bet you will be a trend setter with this idea and all the other clubs out there will be copying. Those ID cards look great.

      Thanks. I wanted to do something a little different and which had a bit of my style & humour to it.

    Oh we think this is a great idea! Although, there are so MANY of us…that’s a lot of badges! Could we have one that says “The Katnip Lounge”? That way we’ll ALL be in there!

      Ok, no problem. I’ll see what I can do.

    Good morning and thank you for our ID cards! What a great idea, how lucky you are to have Eleanor acting as such a wonderful and efficient union secretary. We don’t have a blog but have been inspired by yours, need to investigate.

      Ooooh, well, if you do start a blog please send us the link. It’s always great to find new ones to read.
