Do you want to see what your fellow Flutherers look like?

Asked by Trustinglife (6623points) December 23rd, 2008

Of course you do!

Fluther has a new Photobucket group, thanks to krose1223. Thanks krose!!!

Here’s the link. Go to that page. Upload a photo of you. Put your username as the title of the photo, so we know who you are! (Of course this is all totally voluntary.)

If you’re like me and don’t have a Photobucket account, no sweat. I added one in about 5 min. Hope to see you on there! And feel free to answer this question saying you posted, and you will be lurved!

I’m trying to find a loop hole… I may be able to post tonight.

Jeruba's avatar

Any way to do this if we don’t have an account? For example, if we upload to Tinypic, can someone capture it from there and upload to Photobucket?

peedub's avatar

Done [on the left].

Trustinglife's avatar

@peedub, nice! Who’s the lady on the right side of the photo?

peedub's avatar

My friend Rachel.

andrew's avatar

@judochop: Is that a himmy or a siamese?

judochop's avatar

@andrew: He is a blend of the two. I’ll post photos of him after some other folks get a chance to post if you want to see him better.
@krose1223: Thanks so much. I thank God daily for my little girl.

krose1223's avatar

alright I got some up. I might replace the one of my Xanman with a more current photo.

krose1223's avatar

@peedub- every time I first glance at your picture I see Brad Pitt. So I guess that’s a good thing.

LKidKyle1985's avatar

hey the women of fluther are pretty good lookin. :D

shrubbery's avatar

cool! mine’s up, i’m on the right, though that picture is a couple of years old, sorry :P

bythebay's avatar

There I am.

jholler's avatar

Cool…I’m the not-hot one in my pic. :-) (I can say that cause the other one’s my wife…I’m not fishing!)

SuperMouse's avatar

I put mine up this morning!

robmandu's avatar

Eh… that’s why I have Facebook. There’s always this, though.

tonedef's avatar

Aw. I wish this were a flickr photopool instead of a photobucket group. Let me see if my ancient account is still good. aw, nope. it got purged.

Instead of putting together a flickr group, which could be overkill, I’ll just link to a pic, and hope that one of you kind souls will post itu p on the photobucket jelly face book. :D

here’s me!

cat one, cat two

gimmedat's avatar

@SuperMouse, you look a lot like your old man in that picture!!!!

tonedef's avatar

(also, 2 cents: i love how Fluther brings together hipsters and moms!)

SuperMouse's avatar

@Gimme, where’s your picture?

Harp's avatar

@tonedef- You’re up

SoapChef's avatar

That is a good looking group of folks!

gimmedat's avatar

Should I post my on-line dating photo?

SuperMouse's avatar

@Gimme, YES! That’s the one I was talking about!!!

Judi's avatar

I’m in! (as if I didn’t already show you what I look like!)

SoapChef's avatar

Okay I’m in and in good company I see. It would be fun to have a fluther convention as some have suggested!

andrew's avatar

I don’t know if I like this game. It’s a like a reverse masquerade party gone horribly wrong.

@tonedef: Is that an exotic?? What a cutie! Note to self: now that self has become a “cat person”, take self behind barn and shoot self

tonedef's avatar

@andrew, he is declawed, and i found him under a car during a hurricane. He was abandoned by his owners, so I’m not sure of his pedigree. If anyone has any insight, I’d greatly appreciate it. Like… it’s sorta like a flame-point himalayan, but its face is less extreme. He’s still majorly frowny, though. Again, any cat breeders or aficionados? Maybe this calls for its own question.

and to clarify, I gave you lurve for the “cat person” part, NOT the shooting yourself part.

rawpixels's avatar

Wow, I am in love with Krose

cookieman's avatar

OK – I’m up and posted.

I look nothing like my avatar

angelshine's avatar

I’ll be up and posted if this damn wireless connection doesn’t keep booting me.

Allie's avatar

Mine’s up.

wundayatta's avatar

@soapchef: ”That is a good looking group of folks!

My theory is that only the goodlooking ones are willing to share photos. Also those with nothing to hide. I think some of the people who put photos up there are incredibly brave.

shadling21's avatar

Mine’s up. Hooray!
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I think everyone in there is gorgeous. ;)

cookieman's avatar

Gotta agree with SoapChef. The Flutherites are a seriously good looking crowd of jellies (myself excluded).

And, is it me, or does Supermouse have the most amazing blue eyes ever.

@daloon: Why do you think it’s brave to post our photos?

LKidKyle1985's avatar

Well if I recall, Mr. Daloon also doesn’t like to be addressed while standing in line for coffee either :D. So I can imagine he is in no hurry to post a photo. :(

augustlan's avatar

I think Daloon’s reasoning is that we all talk about very personal things on Fluther, due to the shield of anonymity. Posting your picture takes away at least one layer of that shield…more if someone you know happens upon it! I am an open book in real life too, so it doesn’t really bother me. Daloon (and others, I’m sure) is in a position where revealing all to the people in his real life is not an option at the moment.

SoapChef's avatar

No cprevite, you included.
Yes indeed, supermouse has incredible blue eyes.
Daloon, I totally get what you were saying, I am not always, ‘so brave’.
I did not mean this, ”That is a good looking group of folks!”, solely in the superficial interpretation. I thought it looked like a bunch of really nice people, that I wouldn’t mind knowing in ‘real life’.

cookieman's avatar

this isn’t real life?

Trustinglife's avatar

Feels pretty real to me!

bythebay's avatar

I agree with Soap, this is sort of like suspended reality. You just check out when you’re tired or irritated; you can’t always do that in offline life. I also agree, everybody does look nice, and mostly like I imagined!

wundayatta's avatar

@Trustinglife: be very careful about trusting that feeling of reality you get here. It very subtle, seditious, and can fool you into making some very big mistakes. I have learned that the hard way. Several times. Of course, I’m only one example, so I may be an outlier.

And to be fair, without this unreal world, there’s a good chance I wouldn’t be a father, or, for that matter, even be alive (that’s stretching it far, but it’s possible).

bythebay's avatar

Wow daloon; seditious? That’s a heavy word to use in description of Fluther. Did you mean it that way or are you referring to the internet in general?

delirium's avatar

I’ve been meaning to do this.

wundayatta's avatar

@bythebay – it is a metaphor—it (internet, fluther, facebook, whatever) seduces you with its blandishments about friendships and the next thing you know, you trust the person, and then, Boom! Out of the blue, they stab you in the back. It’s happened to me. I’ve seen it happen to others. I’ve learned to take precautions.

bythebay's avatar

I understand, thanks for the clarification.

Jeruba's avatar

I don’t want to join another site. I hate having to register for things and won’t even read any newspaper’s website that demands a login. Against considerable resistance I already joined tinypic to be able to post links here. But I do have a photo of sorts up on Askville, where I lingered for a month before coming here and staying. Would anyone be kind enough to pick it up for me there and post it with the group’s?

Harp's avatar

@Jeruba
there you are in all your purple glory

cookieman's avatar

Very purple. Prince would be jealous.

Jeruba's avatar

@Harp, thank you!

In real life I am not actually that purple.
