I am suggesting that the moderators put up an option for members to upload a photo beside their user name.
I personally am very visual oriented. I love reading the threads but I think more graphics to follow the conversation re: who said what would be useful. The large amount of written text and font requires koyach needed to use mental energy to follow all the reading which is sometimes overwhelming.
I think if we had a photo beside the username it would be easier to identify the author of the text without having to read.August 16, 2011 2:56 am at 2:56 am #1121568Bar ShattyaMember
What does a bar shattya look like?August 16, 2011 3:19 am at 3:19 am #1121569
I think it gets towards the direction of pritzusAugust 16, 2011 3:23 am at 3:23 am #1121570kylbdnrMember
I actually post on another forum which has the option of putting up pictures and hardly anyone puts it up.August 16, 2011 4:15 am at 4:15 am #1121571real-briskerMember
Why would someone want to give away their identity? And why do you think people will post a legit picture of them self?August 16, 2011 4:43 am at 4:43 am #1121572yummy cupcakeMember
and the confidentiality of this site goes right down the drain… i personally don’t think that would work, and like coffee addict said- definitely pritzus (esp the pics of women/girls) definitely not right for a yeshiva world.August 16, 2011 4:47 am at 4:47 am #1121573StamperMember
I see pictures next to the comments of some posters on the main site here of Yeshiva World. (Not the CR though.)August 16, 2011 5:06 am at 5:06 am #1121574
I don’t think it would be a good idea. As yummy cupcake said, confidentiality would be lowered, and also, I think people would start judging others based on their pictures, which would be a terrible thing. (Especially for me, since I’m Goth.) 😉August 16, 2011 7:19 am at 7:19 am #1121575August 16, 2011 7:51 am at 7:51 am #1121576uneeqMember
@real-brisker Why would anyone put up a picture of themselves? I think the OP’s intent is to have personal avatars on the site just like most other forums do on the interwebs.August 16, 2011 11:35 am at 11:35 am #1121577600 Kilo BearMember
Not hard to find a picture of a 600 kilo bear (Ursus maritimus) online.August 16, 2011 3:09 pm at 3:09 pm #1121578yummy cupcakeMember
hey, and i’m sure i can find one of a yummy lookin’ cupcake (thanks for the idea, 600kb!August 16, 2011 3:17 pm at 3:17 pm #1121579real-briskerMember
uneeq – I wrote two reasons why its not a good idea.August 16, 2011 3:46 pm at 3:46 pm #1121580always runs with scissors fastParticipant
no no i never meant to upload an actual real photo of oneself. Just a kosher image.August 16, 2011 4:02 pm at 4:02 pm #1121581
then no one would be anonymous here anymore! BAD IDEA! BAD IDEA!!!August 16, 2011 4:45 pm at 4:45 pm #1121582Queen BeeMember
Yeah, no real pictures of ourselves, but I’d like to have a cute little bee near my name =)August 16, 2011 4:59 pm at 4:59 pm #1121583
what would I put?August 16, 2011 5:01 pm at 5:01 pm #1121584Queen BeeMember
An adorable little puppy?August 16, 2011 5:05 pm at 5:05 pm #1121585
adorable- A picture of a slurpee? Or manicured fingernails?
I would have picture of a guitar or a supercar.August 16, 2011 5:16 pm at 5:16 pm #1121586
MP- LOL about the slurpee but maybe it should be a big gulp… LOL i cant decide!!!!August 16, 2011 5:17 pm at 5:17 pm #1121587deiyezoogerMember
Maybe the mods should be the ones putting up the pictures kind like the subttiles so there are no ishues of tzenuyos or giving out the real ID.August 16, 2011 5:19 pm at 5:19 pm #1121588
Uh oh, adorable, you can’t decide?! I thought you were past that! 🙂August 16, 2011 5:19 pm at 5:19 pm #1121589
ur over loading them with too much work I think. maybe there should be a picture mod who only does the pics.August 16, 2011 5:21 pm at 5:21 pm #1121590deiyezoogerMember
They can choose if they want to do it just like the subtitles.August 16, 2011 5:21 pm at 5:21 pm #1121592
MP- just kidding around with you!!!!August 16, 2011 5:40 pm at 5:40 pm #1121593
adorable, I know. But this got me wondering, how are you doing with your decision making? Is it any better?August 16, 2011 5:45 pm at 5:45 pm #1121594
yeah its all good. too busy to make decisions. I seriously have a packed schedule every single night this month its not so normalAugust 16, 2011 5:51 pm at 5:51 pm #1121595
Well, a packed schedule is better than an empty schedule! I’m happy your’e keeping busy, but I’m sure decisions will still have to be made, so stay focused and everything will turn out great.August 16, 2011 7:12 pm at 7:12 pm #1121596bptParticipant
I’d post a 2×4, (with rusty nails)August 16, 2011 10:55 pm at 10:55 pm #1121597minyan galMember
What am I supposed to do? Take a picture of a minyan? Would there be enough space for a picture of at least 10 people?August 16, 2011 11:13 pm at 11:13 pm #1121598
is it going to be 10 girls?August 16, 2011 11:17 pm at 11:17 pm #1121599mustangriderMember
minyan gal, hav 10 smiley faces! 🙂
i’ll probably hav a pic of a mustang… (the horse not the car lol! – tho the car is pretty cool too…) or maybe a dolphin…August 16, 2011 11:17 pm at 11:17 pm #1121600HaLeiViParticipant
You can put a picture of bowling pins.August 16, 2011 11:23 pm at 11:23 pm #1121601brotherofursParticipant
i think its a good idea to let the mods do it, but adorable’s right, i feel bad for them :(.
Also if there are pics, they should all be like cartoon [like on aol when u IM] .. i feel like they cant be bad if theyre small little cartoons 🙂August 16, 2011 11:25 pm at 11:25 pm #1121602brotherofursParticipant
mine would be like 2 cartoon ppl holding hands 🙂August 17, 2011 1:36 am at 1:36 am #1121603minyan galMember
“is it going to be 10 girls?”
coffee – possibly.
“You can put a picture of bowling pins. “
HaLeivi – I laughed out loud. Of course, you wouldn’t know, but my father used to own a bowling alley. He would be howling with laughter right now.August 17, 2011 2:11 am at 2:11 am #1121604ItcheSrulikMember
I could use one of the first Spinka Rebbe, also a Yitzchak Yisrael.August 17, 2011 2:18 am at 2:18 am #1121605
I don’t think that would pass in Yeshiva world maybe in JTS worldAugust 17, 2011 3:31 am at 3:31 am #1121606kylbdnrMember
…..what would I put?! lolAugust 17, 2011 2:58 pm at 2:58 pm #1121607
kylbdnr- ur not going to get a good subtitle like that either. you have to be more forthcoming….lets go!August 17, 2011 9:10 pm at 9:10 pm #1121608HaLeiViParticipant
You can put a picture. Post it as a signature in BASE64.January 6, 2016 5:40 pm at 5:40 pm #1121610
I don’t get it. How are you bumping stuff and there’s NOTHING there?January 6, 2016 5:51 pm at 5:51 pm #1121611This name is already takenParticipant
I bumped it but the mods approved, and then took down a whole bunch of my posts todayJanuary 6, 2016 7:13 pm at 7:13 pm #1121612
oh lol. What was with the crazy bumping?January 6, 2016 8:11 pm at 8:11 pm #1121613HashemisreadingParticipant
I actually don’t need a literal picture next to the username to visual a user. my brain does it automatically.
For example, this is how I visualize Shopping613:
Laden with packages over each arm, running around Malcha Mall looking in all the little stands for an emerald sword for sale.January 6, 2016 8:19 pm at 8:19 pm #1121614👑RebYidd23Participant
We shouldn’t have photos of here because there might be vampires and this is their one chance to be normal, but if there are photos people will notice they don’t show up on camera.January 7, 2016 1:47 pm at 1:47 pm #1121615
Hashem is reading: I was cracking up:
Laden with packages over each arm, running around Malcha Mall looking in all the little stands for an emerald sword for sale.
Now that should be my subtitle lol.
People’s subs should be visionaries oh how the mods think we look like. lol. Or suggestions from posters about how they look like.January 7, 2016 9:00 pm at 9:00 pm #1121616HashemisreadingParticipant
Shopping: Yes that would be useful! But your subtitle is good too:)
