    How many of you view the profile of the person posting a thread?

    Just curious. I often view the profile of someone posting, especially if I feel I want to know them better. However, I am often disappointed because there is nothing typed in their profile. But look out for me, when you read mine you will know my life history!

    Sometimes I like to read a profile. The only one I really remember seems to have disappeared and I've wondered what happened to her. I recall she was married and had a son named Kenny (I think) who appeared to be in his early 20's. She tied all her quilts. Anyone know who I'm talking about?

    Same here bobbielinks. I would look at a few trying to gather more info. on the person, but many have little to share.
    Thanks for sharing that with us today.

    I'm always disappointed when I check the profile and it's empty. Love to read about folks on this board.

    The truth is I never even think to look at the profiles. Too busy seeing all the beautiful work I guess.

    I like to look at profiles. I have to admit though, when I see one that's got very little info, my mind automatically makes up a story about them. "Oh, she's a children's librarian with 3 cats and a doting husband. They live next door to her elderly aunt who she has tea with a couple of times a week. Her quilting is mostly done for charities."

    I will go see how much info I left...

    Gosh Bobbielinks, you do very well for someone born in Nov, 2011. How interesting. No, I don't very often read a person's profile, but now I just might. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. Maybe I'd better look at mine....probably needs updating.

    Sorry, don't know of whom you speak, but you tap dance?!!!! I have never met anyone who tap danced. I bet you have a great time when you get to dance!

    Yes, I certainly enjoy the beautiful quilt pictures. But then, I want to know more about the person who put it all together.

    Why thank you, I do do very well for someone my age. LOL When the board changed over to the new format a few months ago I noticed that the year had been added to my birth date. I have tried to edit my profile to fix it, but didn't have any luck doing so, so just left it like it was. If you promise not to tell anyone I'll tell you the true year - 1948.

    A great profile!!! Very interesting, from roller darby to quilting!! I'll bet the others will go to your profile now, just to find out what I'm talking about. You sound like a fun person!

    I like to think I'm fun!
    I mentioned roller derby in a post once before. Either folks aren't sure I was serious or didn't know what I was talking about. I'll make a diagram in case someone is curious.

    I often look at the location. If you want your privacy, at least put the state.

    I never look at the profiles, they would be blank anyway.
