AS we've now got our new member profile facility in which you can create your own photo galllery.

Better than what some of my friends call me!

MamaG Mon 19-Feb-07 14:40:45

i know, but you will always be moonbeam to me from now on!

fortyplus Mon 19-Feb-07 14:40:10

I shall refer to myself as moonbeam from now on...
but what I really meant by labelling as child of the 60s were names like Jane, Janet, Julie, Alison, Claire, Judith, Fiona, Melanie, Beverley, Sheila, Penny, Wendy...
...and Sue!

MamaG Mon 19-Feb-07 14:29:10

lol! i know what you mean moonbeam. I once replied to a word association thread


never again

What I would really like is to be able to post a message but then choose whether I wanted it to stay on my list of 'threads i'm on'.
This one, for example, will irritate me when it's still lurking later in the week and I have no intention of posting another message.

MamaG Mon 19-Feb-07 14:12:52

I'm GLAD you're cutting back on topics, it takes me ages to find the ones i want

JustineMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 29-Jan-07 13:21:38

You can have an empty profile and still use the photogallery - and you can then link to them on talk or you can just put a link up to a photo in chat/ other subjects. We just don't think we need to devote a whole topic to this given that we have an alternative venue as it were and that we are trying to find some topics to cut back on...
Hope that's ok,

Where will we be able to post our huge spiders in the bath then? Or unusual diseases of herbaceous plants? Seriously, it is useful to have a place to post photos - and I'd hate anyone to think that spider was me .

I think there is still a demand for a photo section, for the situations already given.

As we travel Life's weary journey,
And plod through the gathering years,
With our burdens of care and sorrow,
O'er a pathway bedewed with tears.
If, perchance, for a fleeting moment
Our hearts should with rapture swell,
We have added but one more sorrow,
When we bid member profiles "Farewell".

how will people show pics that are new...will they start a thread saying err

look at my profile i have updated it

thinks this sounds even more egotistical

foxtrot Mon 29-Jan-07 11:25:11

Good idea, i love all those pictures of failed baking and children who have cut their own hair

Miaou Mon 29-Jan-07 11:12:44

Can't we have a "photos" topic so that those who don't want to create a member profile but want to ask a "Yeuch, look what I found in my garden/bed/kids toybox - what the hell is it??" type question without having to create a profile specially - can do so?

My word, that was the most tautologous sentence I have ever written - sorry

itsmeNDP Mon 29-Jan-07 11:11:02

Will the old member profiles be deleted ?

Oati Mon 29-Jan-07 11:07:54

I thought that you were going to rename this topic random photos so that people could put up random photos about stuff they wanted to discuss

Chandra Mon 29-Jan-07 11:07:40

About time! It was never properly used for what it was created, although I'm going to miss the images accessibility it currently has.

Marina Mon 29-Jan-07 11:06:28

I know foxtrot, I hate to contradict or discombobulate the Great Custard, so I have not added any photos of my radiantly lovely children either

ludaloo Mon 29-Jan-07 11:06:09

or on the yellow clipboard >>>>>>>>>

foxtrot Mon 29-Jan-07 11:06:01

foxtrot Mon 29-Jan-07 11:05:26

click on the yellow clipboard at the end of the line. Not mine tho' - no pictures, because all my DC are sooo beautiful it would induce and that's not nice

Tortington Mon 29-Jan-07 11:04:26

charmkin Mon 29-Jan-07 11:03:31

Marina Mon 29-Jan-07 11:03:17
