I think this site is a good way of meeting people that you haven't met yet and you will know when you come to the Island. I think everyone should use there name when posting, so when you meet people on the island the name will stand out for you.

Embarassed

I didn't notice the mugshot album before.

Of course I just checked it out and lo and behold my picture is there (for nearly a year). I love that man of mine.

We do need more mugshots out there.

What Kevin said is to use your name on your post so it shows up there - not to have to search for it - I like that idea, that way when I say someting stupid, they know who it is Embarassed

Yes Ron's is right it looks like a lot of people do not want anyone to know who they are. I don't think that is really the case it just looks like that.

Some folks are nervous about putting their name out on the Internet, which I can understand, although it would be nice to know (just in our friendly little community here) who each user is.

By the way, my real name is Robert Zimmerman and my mother invented liquid paper. But don't tell anyone. Wink

By the way, my real name is Conis Von Swiggenheimer. The name "Terry" I use on the island is an alias which is really my dad's name Terry Von Swiggenheimer IV and he invented liquid pencils.

In the spirit of identity truth, I have gotten rid of my stale avatar and posted a real picture of myself.

potato x frog gene splice pic. Yum deep fried.

I do go to the profiles but not much at all is there ...

What I really met was the place they asked us to go to... to tell the site a little about ourselfs when we join .... I do not check there ... maybe I should to see if anyone does leave a message for us ... sometimes I feel like I am on a web site that most keep everthing about themselfs to themselfs .. and I feel like I am talking to a total stranger ... yes .. I have not met most on this site ..but letting us know who they are and what town they live in helps you feel like you do know them .. I could be talking to someone that I know and wouldn't even know it .... it takes time for them to come out ...

Does this make sence to any one ????

Connie Faye.... Go to Your profile and scroll down til you see a place for a signature.. Put in Your real name and place you live and click submit at the bottom of Your profile.. Set an example for others.... If other don't want to follow suit, oh well..... Smile My signature has my real name in the link to my porfolio.. Most people who want to know me contact me thru the personal message option and if they ask I'll tell them about where I live.. Remember.... Kids and Adults have been assaulted thru the act of friendliness and kindness on the internet.. I'm wary....

Conis you can't hide your picture looks just like you. At least it looks like you when I saw you leaving the bar the other night, did John take your picture that night, it looks like it.
