  1. Nope. Avatars are most certainly a personal preference - and it's important to remember that respecting the privacy of a member is paramount. If they feel even an image without a face is too personal, then I suppose I have to respect that. On the other side of the coin - having a personalized avatar does help give you a sense of those you're chatting with on the e-motionless e-forum.
  2. Way to go Lauren...........I think you should get an honorary degree for being able to give them all a run for their money.......and so sooon in your career too! Janice
  3. Hi Vince and thank you for responding to my perhaps overly enthusiastic but apparently unclear post re: Bianca's request in her "kissmyfishy" post and her blog http://www.kissmyfishy.blogspot.com/ I will try to be more clear here without overkill. Since 13 yr old Bianca in France wants to acquire a 1000 photos of people kissing a fish for her reasons..... and since she supplied one of herself doing it,....I thought it would be a neat photo event project for NLFTT members over the next year or so is all. There must be larger group fishes as well as the smaller ones like Lauren, you and others do where it could be a "happening". The photo could be sent to Bianca for her collection. Also, since the members do not post a fishing picture along with their ID's in the grey photo space..... ( it is a huge number of grey squares with names only when you open it up....)it seemed like a neat theme with which to start filling up the squares with some color. According to the definitions below I think there are many creative angles a person can use to take a photo if anonymity is more comfortable (ie a close up from the back at a slight angle or a distance shot will work too) where the "Kiss" is implied by position. I never understood what an avatar really was until I looked it up today in response to Dave's reply. Here are some definitions for others like me who are not so savy. 1.Hindu Mythology. the descent of a deity to the earth in an incarnate form or some manifest shape; the incarnation of a god. 2.an embodiment or personification, as of a principle, attitude, or view of life. 3.Computers. a graphical image that represents a person, as on the Internet. I do not at all understand size problems when downloading photos so I can offer nothing there Dave. Ok enough of me .........I promise to promise to never to bring this idea up again but it would be neat to see some color in those grey areas and help Bianca out too! Who go to go fishing yesterday in that wonderful heat? Not me ...Tear! Janice
  4. I suppose I am one of the newest members next to Bianca of "KissMyFishy" fame and whose blog is delightful. It was nice to see the sweet series of pictures of her "doing the deed" she speaks of! It made her request of receiving a thousand photos of we fisher people doing the deed; legit also, which is important. I also appreciated recieving so many responses to my original quiery where the sense of community is evident. As I am an enthusiastic green horn on here...protocol is something I am learning about. I did look through the members details to see who I was connecting with and vice versa and there are only two photos by members. Me and Dave and lots of psudonyms (sp) There seem to be a lot of photos in posts documenting fine times so privacy is not always an issue. My question is: why do members not use the photo vehicle as a visual resource to show a moment of their passion on a creek whether it is you in a sinking bellyboat or a landed grayling at your feet. It does not have to be facially readable ( mine sure is not). If you have a look at the members pages all there is page after page of gey squares. Ouch! A kissmyfishy photo would be pretty nifty for Bianca's cause in her new land and also show a sense of spirit in NLFTF. ( Idea for the future .......perhaps we could arrange to capture "THE KISS" at some future event ) Am I out of line here .....just fishing for feedback ! Janice

  6. This is killin me Dave, and all you others who are meeting tonight who I do not know, but hope to in two months . I envy your first night back. I finally find you and I have a conflict on Wed nights. Humm perhaps I can find one night to pop in ........or better yet change my class night. Janice
  7. You are teasing me here Dave.......fly tying is something I have always avoided!!!! Use to be give me a fly or 10 (damn those trees, bushes people,dogs behind me) and let me go. How would you all like a little bit of red parrot feathers? Anyone use horse hair? Just a thought! Not that I have a red parrot or a horse ....! (but I do have a couple of contacts and if you are patient with me I might be encouraged to share....perhaps!!) Janice
  8. Thanks for the shortcuts and info Pauline. Yes I have already determined that you all are a great bunch of people I want to be around. Given a little time I too shall kick some butt on the water.Janice
  9. Dennis.. Thanks for your response and your info about the gatherings. I am booked on Wednesday nights for the next few weeks of course (wouldn't you know it........!) .........but if you have a schedule and location information for (ph,,address, name etc) I will put it in my calendar with big letters, stars and suns! This is one sophisticated and wonderfully formatted site which just goes on forever... Since this is a post should I be copying fish jump into my contact list where the address is coded or something and reply from there?? Yes I surely am a neophyte on here. Janice
  10. Seem to have lost a message about wed fly tying nights etc while trying to respond.......(So girl !) Again please?

  11. I just found this site and am just finding my way around it. It has been a few years since I have fly fished so I am looking for a workshop or a class to review my casting skills, etc. sometime over the winter. Is this a good place to look? Janice
