I agree with Maniac, you can post a pic of yourself in your album...if someone wants to see what you look like, they can access the album through the profile icon on anything you post...it's not a bad idea at all, but I don't see a reason to waste anymore of Jon's server space...

Thumbs up

I would say that so far most that have responded are in favor of the idea.

To clarify for anyone just reading from here on,I think that it would be a good idea to have a designated spot in the Photo Album we could post our Self Portraits.

If you dont want your picture in the Album then simply don't send one in. I am sure that we could decide on some sort of order collectivly.

No one person would be obligated, strictly voluntary. And I agree Jon, remaining faceless has some advantages. But I also feel that many newcomers may be a bit more comfortable if we could fit a personality to an actual face.
Though it is easy to warm up to characters like HK, BBB, and our buddy Neil. <img src="graemlins/mwink.gif" border="0" alt="[mwink]" />

I think one of the strengths of the internet and online communication is the our physical anonymity. Here we can talk with each other and the only thing that can make or break you is your intelligence, humor or personability.

Seems to me that most of the problems that we've had recently are a direct result of peoples predjudices. A few examples:

- The anti-rice comments are racist no matter how you justify it
- The recent influx of women joining the board who play up their femininity and then complain about the responses they get
- Lets not forget the rampant homophobia
- Mindless patriotic breastbeating

The only thing missing from the list are religious arguements. Its a miracle that hasn't happened yet...l

Why dont we all worry more about cars and connecting with each other as individuals than what each other believes or looks like.

327,Just say yes or no man.

And, I am slightly intolerant, I enjoy good looking women,I don't like dealing with homo's,and I wave american flags while saying we are the best. And I am openly Protestant Christian! ( Though sometimes foul mouthed )
Everyone I have dealt with seems to enjoy me, and though I have some controversial feelings, I keep it to myself.

[quote]Why dont we all worry more about cars and connecting with each other as individuals <hr></blockquote> I think that seeing faces can help "connect with others". If they don't want to be seen, it's there choice. They can draw something or have a cleverly backlit sihlouette done up!
Anyways...

Have enough people given opinion's to bring this to Jon again? If not we need more reponses! Come on people!-Justin

Question

73 Nova Guy 327,Just say yes or no man.

What exactly are you saying? Ok, no I do not want my mug shot up on the board. I also enjoy women. You don't like dealing with homo's what? you put an apostrophe s which is possessive on homo. so it could be anything. What is wrong with being of a different faith.

Al :p

I think having a "mug" page is a good idea. 73 NovaGuy suggested it would be voluntary, so it seems like it would be up to the individual.

On this item, 327, I guess I didn't notice the "influx" of other women, and take it as a direct reference to me. I thought the waters had calmed, but perhaps not for everyone. I'm not trying to cause a stir, but I do feel obliged to respond.

I am able to take a ribbing, and for the most part, I'm not hard to get along with. I definitely try to stay on topic with cars. If you read the threads you allude to as "problem", you will find more than a single comment from a guy/guys who seem to think its OK to be crude about women. Sorry, but it isn't OK with me. I don't want to go on about it or act mean, but certain comments and attitudes cross a line, and guys that respond that way should be made aware, in my opinion.

I agree with you that tolerance is always in season. You also bring up some interesting points to ponder. I would be willing to bet there are "gay" hot rodders, and probably hot rodders that have "ethnicity" that might not be the most popular among the patriotic crowd. Some might be reluctant to post a pic for that reason?

Now I've really gone off topic. Its past "lights out" time....

Well, i seem to have come upon a good idea spoiled by over-complication. if anyone else agrees with my idea, please say just yes or no, but a small idea or tip is also helpful. Jon said that the more people on board, the sooner he will consider putting the plan into action.

thanks everyone for all your input guys!

73 Nova Guy: Ok, maybe I was a bit grumpy that day got too serious. I thought for awhile there that I posted another thread-killer...

It was probably just residual anger over what that loser said to BBB combined with the the general lack of maturity lately. Crap, I think I'm getting old.

Kaylah: I have to admit that I had you in mind when I posted that one point but by no means were you the only reason. A lot of women have signed up and posted a few 'I'm cute, I have a car, love me' threads then they disappear as soon as the dogs stop circling. I apologize if I insinuated that you belong in that category. I've read your posts since and I'm impressed with your knowledge about the hobby so you already have some street cred with me In fact I'm pretty sure you know more about it than I do

For the record: I am slightly intolerant, I enjoy good looking women, I couldn't possibly care less about a persons sexual preference, and I've never waved a flag in my life (and hope I never do).
I am openly Orthodox Sarchastic, have a monobrow, my eyes are spaced alarmingly far apart, I have gap teeth and chronic facial tic's, and like 4jaw, I'm warty as all get out.

Basically a Brad Pitt look alike but with 4 chromosomes missing.

Good God man, your an Ernie look alike! You aught to be praised for the courage to go outside!

Thats alright, I'm 6'2 and 120lbs. Look like a walking skeleton draped in skin. Also a Brad Pitt look alike from the movie Interveiw with a Vampire, but he hasn't eaten for years. Often get mistaken for a coatrack with teeth. Got the name HK from my odd appearance, love for Halloween and anything odd and frightful. Why HK, because no matter how much I look like Jack from Nightmare before Christmas, my names not Jack and I refuse to shave my cranium. So feel at ease, no matter how ugly you may be, attention will be diverted if I'm around.
