We have 50+ students with Arduinos at our university, and each one has a couple of boards...there are a lot lying around. Each one has a name written on it somewhere, but all in different places, in scrawly pen. It really makes the shiny new boards look pretty scruffy.

Could Arduinos come with a nice white "My name is..." space?
(It would also mean that people could name their boards according to the project they relate to, or just give them pet names...)
It would only have to be a white rectangle somwehere on the board, but it would make it a uniform way to label boards.

Just a thought!

How about a small cable tie to a luggage tag size piece of plastic?

It's a nice idea if there is room for such silkscreen; in the meantime, use a thin strip sticker or something, and put it on the ATMega.
I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.

A label-maker would work well and be a lot neater than handwriting.

That was nominally what the little rectangle in the upper left of Freeduino is for.  But it's not very big.

- a sticker on the main processor, enough place ...

- or should we design a name shield  :)

Yes, name shield, something with some lights so you can tell when it is on!
