Hi All,

You see most of my friends and relatives are not in computers. For them I am just a person who works in computers. Now when they see the NANY 2011 MUG on my table, they pleasantly ask about it. No matter how I try to boost or convince them that I WON it, they look suspiciously at me. Since there is no mention of my name or my contribution, they do not take my words for it. Showing them the websites and my photos on them is easier said than done. Since they are not in computers, they understand nothing, forget about specify programming.

I was just wondering what can be done so that to make it legitimate. One thought came was to have a 'certificate' beside the mug.

I think if we can make a certificate of the sort "This to certify that Mr/Ms [Name] has participated in NANY 2011 by contributing [1. Apps], [2. Apps] etc. and so on". This certificate we can make as pdf downloadable with NANY logo, ribbon etc., which the members can download and print.

Well hope you got my point. Any other idea is also welcome.

Regards,

Anand

I actually bought some certificate stock with gold+blue foil ribbons quite a while ago, for just such a use.
So all we need to do is figure out the text for it, and we'll do it for the upcoming NANY 2012.

@mouser, NANY 2012 mug is still 1 year to go (I may get that mug in Apr'12)

@cranioscopical, you just post yours here and we will adjust it, if required, and then Mouser and Perry will approve it. It will not be a fake but official certificate for NANY 2011.

You see, DC is community work and we need the Coral Draw / Photoshop guys here to make it. I myself will try my hand on image editors, though I do not use or know CD/PS, and upload the same for approval. If we all try, we may make one sooner than later.

Regards,

Anand

I, too, have some certificate stock. I used to run them off for some of the youngest family members when they had achieved something worthwhile (to them). They were quite popular which probably had more to do with the paper money attached to the back than with the certificates themselves.
