Right - this is why I thought having someone just make a seperate site with pictures (and profiles?) might work. That way, it doesn't detract from the emphasis of traveling on this site, it doesn't bother site browsers who have no interest in our pictures, but we can still have a page. And pictures wouldn't be necessary, only people who wanted to would do it...ya know? Maybe others could just say something about themselves, like you said, nottlob.

Perhaps this is tromping on the website's field, though...but whatever and wherever it is, I'd be really interested in having something like that.

Hi all,

Firstly, many thanks webmaster for your quick response and advice (always really appreciated :-} ).

I must admit I was a little worried to see the direction the "pics-on-website" idea was going, especially as it seems that Michael is now being consulted.

My original suggestion was to find a safe way of exchanging e-mail addresses in order to organise the exchange of photos by snail mail, not to have our own personal bios and pics on this site!! This is Michael's, Basil's, Nigel's etc show.

I support the ideas and offers (Kelly, Mary, Helen, nottlob, Lyn :-} ) of setting up a place seperately for posting our own private info and Palinite convention stuff.

Before the upgrade, I'd suggested the possibility of posting pics on the site, but of our travels, in keeping with the nature of the site.

As much as I'm enjoying the lunacy on the chatterbox (you lot are superb! :-} ) I'm also marvelling at the fact that we're all quite global and can share information about our respective countries and ways of life so immediately in a way that isn't really possible without physical travel. For the vast majority of us major travel is just a dream so we can live vicariously through Michael and learn a lot from each other here. For me personally this is what "Palins Travels" is about, for the lucky travellers to share info and the rest of us to share our own specific/global info too.

Waiting with interest to read what's planned next. :-}

I agree Ellen, It would be great to see photos of the different places where we all live. I'm sure theres a few photos of northern ireland that would interest some of you and i'd love to see all the different places where you all live!

I agree that this site is Michael's and that it is for travel etc not a michael palin fan club so i suppose it wouldn't make sense to post our pics here, maybe on another page if you're all interested.

lol

definitely need to keep us separate and not to detract from the great format that the site has already

talking of passing things on well - look at my new topic and you'll find out what I have been up to - hope you approve!

LOL

I agree in thinking we should have a separate site for photos of each other. After all this is Michael's site about travel, although he has kindly let us write about him to our hearts content. :-)

kelley,
I would love to see photos of Northern Ireland; any part of Ireland would interest me. It is one of the countries I plan on visiting one day.

Lyn,
Happy Belated Birthday!

Well, glad to hear I'm not completely crazy and you guys agree with me... ;O)

I too would be interested in pictures of Ireland and, in fact, anywhere in the British Isles...I'm a medieval freak, and frankly we just don't have sights like that over in America. LOL!
But, in general, it'd be cool to see all the places that Palinites are from -like virtual traveling.

Belated birthday wishes from me, as well, Lyn!

~Mary
