Profile Comments

Is it possible to have a comments section on each profile? Something similar to a Facebook Wall? I think it would be useful to leave general comments about someone, without being specific to one of their particular submissions (photos, TRs, etc).

Just an idea. :)

Do you really want some of our PnP contributors to have the power to write on your profile? :wink:

I suppose there could be an approval of some sorts.

"Contributors" is rather generous for some... :lol:

I would like to see something like this as well, often if I have a general comment I write something on the profile photo which may change in future.

I vote no on this idea. Go browse unmoderated PnP if you dare. There are some hairy cat-fights going on between otherwise really good people. I barely understand why this is. I think commenting on TRs and Picts is enough.

I'd vote no as well. On facebook, you choose the people that can post on your profile. Here it would be open to everyone.

You can always PM somebody. Pretty much the same thing, but it's not public.

Agreed. I can't imagine what kind of general comment from one person to another needs to be made in public, instead of just in a private message. I would be interested in seeing some examples, hypothetical or otherwise.

Like dayhiker I see no reason why it could not be PM'ed. This is not myspace or facebook.

+2. MySpace and Facebook are mega-creepy. Let's not turn SP into one of those.

One example would be "Welcome to SP!" If I write that on their profile photo, it's going to be buried. And to me, PMing something like that is awkward and sorta creepy. Private messages certainly serve a purpose, but I think there are times when public messages can serve a purpose as well.

And maybe if some of the hardcore PNPers ever decide to reconcile differences, it would be nice to give them the option of doing so publicly. Maybe it could contribute a sense of goodwill to the whole SP community!

If it would be done, I definitely think it should have an option for the profile owner to delete comments.
