Hey, I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this, but I noticed on another forum they had a section for posting Members' pics (see the face behind these posters?!).

Thought this could be a neat idea, but wonder if anybody else would be interseted in something like this.

Just curious.

btw.. the forum I saw this is FedoraForum.org (http://www.fedoraforum.org/gallery/browseimages.php?c=4).

We ought to get people to put their pic in their profile picture - you can have 2 pics- your avatar, which displays next to the posts, and your profile picture which only can be seen by going to each members profile.

Yes, just go to: Quick links > User Control Panel > Edit Profile Picture.

I'm planning on adding a picture of me sometime in the next few days.

I've had a pic of me on my profile for awhile now.

The only thing is that I don't usually go into people's profile and see the pics. There might be some interesting quips about people in their profiles but ultimately there isn't much of a reason to.

I don't know if the Ubuntu forums wants to start giving people a place for blogging or the such to produce changable profiles and an additional reason to view them individually.

Mine is in my blog (here's the direct link: http://jucato.wordpress.com/about/).

I generally don't want to torture people with my face, so I don't show it unless they ask for it. In which case I could just point them to my blog. :D

While we're on the subject of Profiles, I've noticed a category in profiles for "Group Memberships".

What is that and how does one join?

Last time I posted my picture on the Internet, thousands of people got sick, hundreds had to go to the hospital, plants died, pets started attacking their owners, and the entire Internet went down for days, all because the picture was so terrible to behold.

I don't think anyone wants that to happen again.
