    Re: Help with designing a new room sign!

    We opt for the no-sign approach, but it does not stop people bothering us!

    The reason we have no sign is security - being an open school for Adult Education in the evening we often have kit walk by opportunists so the less advertsing about where large amounts of kit might be stored the better.

    I did consider putting a sign up once that read "Please Knock and run away laughing" in the hope it would take the fun out of the kids doing it - they hate doing as they are told to do!

    OK, this is my second attempt at a sign. The first one was dreadful. I got this idea a little of the opening sequence of the IT Crowd. Thanks to webman for the font!

    What does everyone think?

    The joys of reverse psychology .

    I also only have a door in one job, in the other job I don't have an office or anything like it. There is the server room, but there isn't even a chair in there. All the teachers have access to it as it is a stock room as well and the door is commonly left open as everyone needs access but keys are rare (i'm one of a few people with the privilege of having one). I don't even have easy access to a phone in that school so end up using my mobile for most calls.

    Re: Help with designing a new room sign!

    I don't have a sign on the server room for the reason of not wanting to advertise it.

    However if I get a new office I think it will have to be one that just says "NOC"

    Server rooms keys are only held by my technician, site manager and myself.

    I think the only door I don't have a key for in the school is the main entrance.

    Re: Help with designing a new room sign!

    On our door we have a perspex sign that just says 'Computer Office' although I believe this used to be on the SIMS office door as that used to be called the computer office for some reason (so we still get people askign for SIMS logins)
    To confuse things even more, in the telephone extensions, we are listed as 'Network Office'

    On the server room we just have an A4 sheet covering the window so no-one can see in. Just says 'Keep our servers cool, keep this door closed!' with a hiLOLarious picture of a sweating computer

    Re: Help with designing a new room sign!

    Well, I've desided to go with the design I posted above, and it's ready to go up! Just waiting for the site staff to put a coat of paint on the door before I put it up. Will post the result on here when it's done!!!

    It's been enjoyable to hear what everyone has got on their door, and to see a few pictures of them as well. Keep them coming.....

    It doubles as a notice board for the drama department?

    Don't have any sign on my door but the server room where the technician hides has ICT Support on the door. If I think on tommorrow i'll take a picture to upload.

    We are moving to a new office later on this year, so will be thinking up a new sign for then.

    Re: Help with designing a new room sign!

    Our door just has a sign saying ICT Technical Room.

    However the door opens out into the corridor. Such fun! No one ever remembers, takes kids ages to read the PULL sign on it.

    Even more fun when people leave despite a 4 foot PUSH sign down the door. Everyday someone pushes and walks into the door when it fails to open.

    Re: Help with designing a new room sign!

    Here it is, the final sign proudly presented on our newly painted door! The green text does look darker than it actually is in the pic. I did want to use a brighter green but that's all the tech dept had. I think if I had a second go, I would have had the text done in yellow. But beggars can't be choosers!
