Put a face on this ‘community’?

 5:55 pm on Nov 1, 2001 (gmt 0)

BT, I have been pondering my ‘betty button lint’ again (as RC says) and I think there should be actual faces on your site....at least just a fun area with images.... post the pictures from the pub conference, whatever... just warm it up. You have a great site here... you are so deep on content it’s stupid... in my opinion, your site has the best alive and breathing seo content in existence, and even though I don’t have enough time to hang too much in some of the other forums, your mod squad is the bomb.

.... I think you need to go somewhere different.... you need to go beyond the cold programming feel, and warm it up.... this place is a *community*.... put a face on it.

>you need to go beyond the cold programming feel, and warm it up

EEeeww! But, db, I really liked the cold, metallic hum of spider ID-ing and algo dissection that we used to have.

There speaks a brave man with a strong constition:)

I agree. How about mugshots of the moderators and Brett. Heh we talk every day but dont know what they look like.


 8:21 pm on Nov 1, 2001 (gmt 0)

But then you would know who we are when we pass you on the street and in the grocery store.

And then there would be fans asking for autographs.

And then the SE's would have an easier time finding the rebel base and we would be captured in no time.

In the great words of Han Solo... "I got a bad feeling about this."

I've met rcjordan - you guys sure you want to see a pic? ;)


 8:26 pm on Nov 1, 2001 (gmt 0)

::chuckle:: Brett and the mods don't know what most of the members look like either.

You want photos dogboy? Step up to bat, man! Let's see your cheery mug plastered up in your user profile. ;)

>fans asking for autographs

Oh yes! And some of the handsome hunks around here might already have more groupies than they can handle. :)


 8:39 pm on Nov 1, 2001 (gmt 0)

I agree !

running off to find that adorable pic of me, cira 1960....

>adorable pic of me, cira 1960....

paynt, I don't think dogboy wants to see our baby pictures. It is a baby picture right, not anything like your 40th birthday glamor shot?


 9:09 pm on Nov 1, 2001 (gmt 0)

done....bring it on, mivox:)



 9:17 pm on Nov 1, 2001 (gmt 0)



Didn't think you'd do it, being the cranky hermit-type you are. Then again, having never met you, for all I know that could be a photo of your third cousin's brother-in-law....


 9:28 pm on Nov 1, 2001 (gmt 0)

Pleeezzze Marcia, can you imagine I'd want anything but a cute little baby pic of me running around here?

I was so afraid this was coming. We know what each other wears to work, what we drink, what our desktops look like, what music we each listen to. I must retain some sense of mystery. Plus, dogboy's pup is too cute to compete :)


 9:29 pm on Nov 1, 2001 (gmt 0)

excuses, excuses ;)


 9:52 pm on Nov 1, 2001 (gmt 0)

youch! you're a hotty! rofl.... see aren't we having fun? Those are moutain goats behind me and Geronimo. (BTW He's not one of my sled dogs... too fat and mellow... but falls into the cat of once in a lifetime friend.... How about him, Mackin?... he always has my back... best thing in my life.... Geronimo, NOT Mackin...ROFLHEHEEH)

That is also the official dog mushing cap of 'Team Wild Dog' that NFFC was talking about...

The place is a mountain (USFS Wilderness area) behind my place. I look at it everyday.... awsome. The picture is pretty recent. I have a dumb*ss expression on my face cause I'm trying to get my dog to look at the camera.... heheh some trainer, huh?

anyway, I was just thinking about revenue models for WmW and I came up with the idea of selling extra ad space to the members.... meaning, if I wanted to give BT some cash, he would give me some more room in my profile area so I could sell you some widgets.... anyone who didn't want to buy ad space would still get the basic stuff up there now but they might have to show some type of (clearly marked) advertising which BT would then sell to general SE oriented advertisers...

kinda strange? maybe... but I don't know if it would even work... not enough traffic there unless he does something to highlight this feature.... how? maybe part of the package is he gives you a little space next to your name.... but then that might open him up to more spam with people who just post to get more exposure.... not to mention the bandwidth on this whole thing...

anyway, I was just playing with ideas and this one just happened to pop up as I was surfing around... I thought I might turn it lose in here. The other way it might go is just open up the features to make it more sticky...

You posted your photo, and then went and immediately chugged a large thermos of straight espresso, didn't you? ;)

(Oh, did I mention that photo's almost 3 years old, and doesn't show my glasses? ::snort:: )

heheh some trainer, huh?
You should've seen the time I tried to train a ferret to walk on a leash. After that, he just travelled in my pocket. Dogs are cake, in comparison. ;)


 10:30 pm on Nov 1, 2001 (gmt 0)

I have also updated my profile with a new self portrait. :)


 11:54 pm on Nov 1, 2001 (gmt 0)

Added picture to my profile as well. It was taken this past summer in Africa on the bridge over the Zambezi river between Zambia and Zimbabwe at Victoria Falls. It was my first (hopefully of many) bungi jump. The bridge is 110 meters tall and it is the second highest commercial jump in the world.

I updated mine [boneheadomatic.hypermart.net] to include my new girlfriend...she says she's some some kind of a singer or something.


 4:21 am on Nov 2, 2001 (gmt 0)

Hmm, I put my 3d mugshot up in my profile.


 4:38 am on Nov 2, 2001 (gmt 0)


My eyesight has gone all squidgy from staring at the monitor all day already! Have some mercy ggrot!


 5:05 am on Nov 2, 2001 (gmt 0)

stereoscopic shot, ggrot? So that explains it!

At first I thought it was a before and after for one of mivox's squish-o-matic jpeg compression dealies.


 1:21 pm on Nov 2, 2001 (gmt 0)

It's a good idea Dogboy. It's up to the mods to do it. The old profile image is there for them to use if they want. Team photo [timvp.com]


 1:50 pm on Nov 2, 2001 (gmt 0)

I have updated my profile....it is a picture of me speaking with a "colleague".


 2:19 pm on Nov 2, 2001 (gmt 0)

I have (tenatively) ID'd the persons in BTs "team photo", from l to r, back row first:

Mike_Mackin, Macguru, rcjordan, Brett_Tabke (nice curls ;))

NFFC, caine

Tee-hee-hee <runs off waving hands in glee>

Anyone disagree?


 2:28 pm on Nov 2, 2001 (gmt 0)

>Tee-hee-hee <runs off waving hands in glee>

I'd enjoy the mobility, it may not last long :)


 2:34 pm on Nov 2, 2001 (gmt 0)


where did i come in to this one, i was just drueling over one of the feminine member of the boards photograph, then you wack up that rather blinding statement.

I don't know how the rest of the accused feel, about that rather suicidle epoch of a brain cell exploding to create such an abomnimation. To me its fighting talk matey. I have'nt been levelled by such, in a long time, even my beer budies don't go to them lows.

you better be running fast, and waving your hands furiously !

Caine, NFFC

I take it you disagree with my powers of observation? Well, if it isn't you, who is it? No boring-but-actually-true answers please

If anyone is offended at being LEFT OUT of the list, I actually just picked some names at random. Please notify if you want to join the list


 3:09 pm on Nov 2, 2001 (gmt 0)

Just updated my profile too. I will find a good one soon to replace it. The photographer was not very professional at this place.
