    I seem to get either an IM request or get hot listed by someone without a picture and/or with a unfilled profile once a day. What is up with that? Should RJ have a mandatory picture policy and require some fields in a profile to be completed before being submitted?

    Anyone else super-annoyed by this?

    It's a personal choice, and no, I don't think RJ should have picture requirements.

    If you have a problem with it, just ignore them when they IM you, and when they hotlist you take it as a compliment, which it's meant to be.

    To be honest, anyone who gets annoyed by a picture less guy hot listing them has little to worry about in life.

    Oh, how I wish I had such a life.

    As Shawn says "take it as a complement" because that's what it is.

    And no there should not be a mandatory picture policy.

    Someone without a pic IM'd me the other day. I checked his profile and it didn't have much in it.

    I'm, like, if you can't show your face, at least show what's on your mind.

    Better what's in your heart. (Yeah, yeah, corny.) icon_biggrin.gif

    A picture is always helpful, but not required.

    The more complete a profile is, the better, but I think the degree of depth is based on the comfort level of the participant and the reason he is here.

    "Hey dude, wanna cam?"

    Its annoying but something that can be dealt with. I agree with GQ, the people people to ask to cam with no pic and/or profile are the worst....and half of them dont have a cam themselves. That is a good way to blocked.

    I just had 2 today.

    They don't seem to read my profile before requesting an IM either... they still ask me my nationality for instance, or for pics.

    Some are real people however, LOL. If you can get them to a webcam.

    It's annoying, but whatever, if they can carry a conversation then that's good enough. Heh.
