Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

One of the things people do is speak at conferences, guest lectures, devdays, etc.

In the general case, it would be useful if there was a kind of list of 'one-off' achievements that could be described. E.g., "I got the chief pony groomer award at TXI Studios"

Maybe you're looking to have a separate box to hold "random achievements"? I'd stick them in the "what else do you want to brag about yourself" box, myself. (aka "projects and links")

Don't make them rename "Projects and Links" to Misc" or "Other" ;) – Danny Tuppeny Mar 3 '11 at 18:53
@Danny Tuppeny -- You can add headers to the Projects and Links area using Markdown, but it looks a little funky as it is not quite lined up with the other main headers. I added a Papers and Publications section at the end of my "Background". It looks like this: – Jay Elston Jun 3 '11 at 18:29
