    Fantastic indeed... we are becoming more and more of a family, eventually coming out of our cocoons and showing ourselves.

    So glad you made it back home safely, AND, that the whole trip was a success..

    But, I'm totally envious that you got to take a ride on the A380! I can't wait to see if what kind of images you got of her, and on board her. This is Christmas, way too early!

    Hey, what a great couple!!
    Thank you so very much for showing us the face behind the 'ombugge' nick, as I have often wondered how he looked
    Such postings only bring us closer, and as I see it, are only for the good.

    Great! Welcome back, Seagull and hello to you 'ombugge'!

    Seagull has flown back . . . aboard an A380 !!!!

    I’ve now arrived home in Edinburgh after an absolutely super trip, and yes, as you all expected I’ve brought back lots of photos!
    So much to do and catch up on, but before I even think of unpacking, and long before any photos start to appear in the F1 and This is Singapore threads (or any new gallery thread like Paul has suggested), there is one photo you’ll want to see right away.

    Hmmm, maybe sort of the logistics of navigation (of the site, that is). The 'Self Portrait' thread is a photographic theme and in the photographic section. Possibly it is also a reason for reluctance to post in it, ie there are many superb quality photos in the various threads and 'self portrait' implies a requirement for something 'arty' and of quality?

    The Crew Manifest seems to contain threads relating to members - birthdays, deaths, explain user name etc. If members wished to see what a member who they were about to insult looked like, perhaps a logical place to look might be in 'The Manifest'? I see it being in 2 sections:

    1st would be an alphabetical gallery-style list of members that would have just 1 photo for id purposes that can be a mere snap to prevent members thinking that their lack of photo skills would make their pik not worthy. I anticipate that perhaps 5% of members might have a photo appearing? But this could be added to. Many members may not feel capable of adding photos themselves via an external pik hosting site, so perhaps photos could be emailed to one member who regularly posts piks up.

    2nd would be a fun/party/meet up content, like Seagull's recent excursion where she was able to have some photos taken of groups of members, or, in fact, any piks relating to any single members that seem appropriate to this topic.

    Only a thought - not that finitely developed as yet. It is done on another site I use (about 8,000 members) and it was a massive undertaking for the person dealing with it, although I suspect it would be a fairly minor task on CV.

    Clicking on all the invividual members to see if there is a photo is laborious; there seems reticence to post within 'Self Portraits'. A 'gallery' of mugshots just seems a logical place for them to go. Of course, many/most will still not wish their visage to be seen!

    How do you envisage this, Paul? How would it differ from the self-portrait and the "Picture Yourself... well, Oh dear!" threads?

    So true S, so very true... one of my AB's was almost hit by a car two days ago, for the first time in his many year long ferry career...

    People just do not pay enough attention, we see them all: talking on mobiles, using a laptop, letting their under-age children handle the wheel, eating and applying make-up whilst driving on board!

    Car races in Singapore: oh, goodie... a bit away from the slow pace of my ferry.

    Not too late Ivy – you just caught me having a last look around Thanks for the good wishes. As for photos, well with D in tow I never seem to quite get around sightseeing in my usual fashion. . . but you’re guaranteed some race cars and at least one sky per day, no doubt with some bits of the Singapore skyline jutting up into it .

    Paul, did you know that if you view the public profile of a member you will see (only if you are logged in as a member) their profile picture if they have one? Me or ehp for example – but I see Sterkoder hasn’t made one yet!

    But perhaps you were referring to when members have met ?
    When I’ve met up with members who are OK about photos being posted, it always seems to have been in the context of other photos or threads, so the idea of a gallery or special thread for that kind of thing hadn’t occurred to me.

    (Actually it’s usually me who is shy about photos that others take (i.e. not with my camera and therefore out of my control!) as I’m so un-photogenic, I mean really like something out of a horror film – 1 in 10 acceptability rate would be optimistic!)
