I keep going back and forth about this.  On the one hand, it allows that
finer grain of information.  On the other hand, it would clutter the
User page (If I have badges for every convention I've ever attended, or
even just for every convention I've demo'ed at, it's going to quickly
become ludicrious . . . both the section with the pictures and the
Categories section).

This would be cool.  I'm reading up on templates to figure out if
there's a way to do {{attends_GenCon|years=06,08}} and have the desired
behavior.  There might be something close.

I think it's time to move this discussion to the wiki itself (I see
you've already done that, but it's largely split between your Talk
pages).  Accordingly, I've created:

Should be a good place to catch follow-up discussion.  I'll try to get
most of the current commentary included.
