ZOMG, that's why he is so smart in all the discussions! He is cheating by rerouting all the blood to his brain.

On a more serious note, I think you should change your avatar pic to the one posted on the previous page, Buz. Way hotter.

By the way, I may have been wrong above. A member has posted all of her photos of her group doing Old Rag on that page - you are going to need a weapon of mass deletion.


Yeah, it seems I need to detach some clutter. I already detached a couple. The page will never be the same again without this critical component:

When I first looked through the photos, I kept seeing a bunch of photos that almost had some artistic merit and they were yours. Further investigation revealed that they had informative value.

You still need to remove quite a few of the photos from one of our young female members that show absolutely nothing about the mountain.

I assume most of us don't pay that much attention to the photo of the moment (at least I don't).

If you don't like the photo of the moment feature, it's best to just ignore it.

They are sometimes the only photos I look at... espectially when I see shots from new members showing up:

Or members I am unfamiliar with:

Or nice shots from more well known folks:

I dig the photo-of-the-moment, and consider it a cool feature.

YAWN .... think I'll seek out the confines of a dark, musky cave and count bats; just like some folks count sheep.

My issue is the people using SP as a photo database. There is no reason to have thousands of images uploaded of your family vacations.


Or hundreds of the same shot of a mountain. This morning, the POM was a shot of Mt. Rainier; not bad, but just your usual shot. It was attached to the Mt. Rainier page, which has 1974 photos. I'll bet there are at least a few photos there almost exactly like this one.
