    I didn't mind filling in most info categories in my profile when joining. Some members like to remain anonymous. It seems more the younger than the older. I had a hard time with that early on, but in thinking on it I concluded that it's their choice and I can't so much blame them in this wacky world today, especially the vulnerable.

    Some join just to post questions for help. Some once and others periodically. That's ok, for the number one reason for the forum is helping others IMO. However, one should at least fill in system specs to help them better.

    Then we have active members that use the forum for more. Some choose to remain anonymous in their profile, but will post some info here. It's more difficult to find info in a thread than in one's profile. It helps me as an active member to get to know them better. Even those that aren't so much anonymous.

    Some threads are just for fun.. this happens to be one of those, along with a tad of personal info. thrown in.
    I reply to threads that interest me, in one way or another.

    Some days we all need a break from our real liives.

    I wasn't saying a Thread.
    Just a listing like in the picture I attached, at the bottom where the people online are listed.



    Maybe even an image map of the world with pins indicating where everybody is located.

    Then again, in a thread, people can add whatever they want.
    Pictures.
    Descriptive text.
    Whatever.
    Some are proud of their origins & would like to expand on what is in their profile.

    This thread seems to be picking up as time goes by.
