A "sticky" is impersonal. What we would really like is someone to become a "personal greeter" and we(the mod team) have discussed that idea. But it becomes a rather difficult task now we have so many members and the rate of sign up is so large. So we didn't take that any further because we find that most of you wonderful people do the job just fine anyway.
As for posting
photo's and more information. I too would love to see more of both. But one has to accept that folks will need to become at ease with the place before more of either is posted. Some places out there you do not want personal info posted on. One thing I like very much about here, is we are a much "safer" community. Well as safe as anyone ever can be in a Cyberspace community.
