    Heh, same here.

    I like to know what people look like once I'm aware of their presence on the boards through their posts.

    I look once in a blue moon, but it's not important to me.

    3rded, This is why the one picture I've always looked forward to seeing more then anyone else's at the time was Athenian200. All we knew was that he posted a lot, and that no one had any idea what he looked like. Now I just look in the thread out of habit.

    Ha, after the athenian gender thread, all of a sudden I thought Athenian might look like a drag queen.
    Then I saw it and was surprised to see he looked normal.

    It's not just you. Sometimes the comments are interesting though. Sometimes nauseating. The attention whoring is just ... sad. And I think underagers shouldn't be permitted to post pics. I don't think they necessarily understand the dangers and they ought to be shielded from unwholesome attention.

    This makes me miss Edahn and all his metaforuming.

    I like that!
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    I rarely visit the picture thread, unless it's a slow night and the picture thread is going berserk. Personally I'm not interested in what anyone looks like until they've hit at least the 1000 posts mark. Too many of the pics I've seen there belong to people who didn't even hit the 200 mark. There are a few senior posters whose pics I've never seen and would be interested in seeing. If I could see those pics I'd probably never open the thread again.

    I love seeing pics of people I know of as words although sometimes it does feel like attention whoring. I guess posting to profile albums would make more sense, I tried to make one once and it crashed so I gave up.

    Actual pictures of people get lost in that thread among the "I'd hit it" posts. There are still some people that I wish I knew what they looked like but I figure I missed it and I won't ever find it if they posted one.

    Partially the reason for that other Picture Time thread with just the pictures, I thought that was a really good idea...though a time consuming moderating project.
