The Area "My Photos"

Computer Lovin Cat - Stuck online

How many members actually take the time to look at their friends area of their personal pictures or whatever pics they upload there? Do you make any comments on these pictures? I've had friends comment on mine but the comments seem to vanish after awhile. I try to check ouit my friends photos daily hoping to see a new one or more ever so often. I also try to make a comment when possible. Now my little pet peeve is that I've seen some members that have 200 or even more pictures on their page. How could anyone sit at one friends' page to look at that many pictures? I sure don't. I may look at a few then get tired of click after click after click. So what I do is I usually just post 6 pics on my page as that's all that shows' on the members page when you visit. Then every week or so I'll change them for a variety so my friends can enjoy them. Anyone care to share their feelings and opinions about the My Photos area? How do you have yours set up and how often do you add or change them? Thanks for all responses in advance. Check out the pic of the cat inside a computer I've attached. It's sooo cute. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!

You know I was wondering about that photo section, too. I have about 8 photos posted, and no one, I mean no one, seems to look at them, or make any comments on them. I thought they were pretty cool, too, but, oh well, maybe I'm wrong. However, I'm guilty, too, if not really looking at my "friends" photos, and I guess I need to check them out, then maybe they will check mine out. I guess I'm the only one that thinks my photos are good...but we all have that tendency. I haven't changed mine since I joined 2 months ago, as I keep hoping someone will notice them. I'll check your out...thanks for your comments.

To be honest, I *never* look at the photos at any profile page. I just take in the view of the entire page and only stare harder if a particular pic catches my eye. I sure hope it doesn't offend anyone...

Well, I dont have any pictures in my photo thing. Thats because of 1 simple reason: dont know how to add them & I've never taken the time to try & figure it out. Someday I'll mess with it and see if I can figure out how to add pics but dont know when that'll be. I do go through my friends photos alot. I dont leave comments most of the time but I do rate them.

Hi Granpda, I too check for comments everyday but I haven't received even one since the day I put them up. If you remember I had mentioned about my Houston trip last month and uploaded the pics then, but no comments yet:( Now I've stopped checking..hehe For a long time I had no personal pics there and only the Capricorn symbol which you had left a comment on (thank you!) I will look at your pics. When I visit others' profiles I do take a quick peek at their personal photos and leave comments where necessary.

I had a look at your photo of your cat in the computer first, as he is very sure. I rated it, and wrote a cooment.As for photos, yep, I agree. As you may remember, I went through a stage of viewing all my friends photos are rating them. I did 5 photos each, as it takes way too long for each photo to load. I'm afraid I haven't changed them, but that is a good idea. My pet peeve, is that I still can't load pgotos on my friends comments. Don';t know what I am doing wrong? Cheers Jenny

I don't really look at the pictures and I have a very bad habit of not even looking at my own page...LOL...now what does that make me Grandpa Bob? I was very suprised to see just now that you are one of those who posted some comments on my page and I never even got to send a thank you...well better late than never..LOL..Thank you very much Grandpa Bob for your comment! Sorry I just saw those comments...grrrr..I'm so so so...well I'm going to remedy this habit of mine right away. When I log into mylot, I just read, reply & post discussions...LOL. There is more to this site than just discussions and that would bring me to pictures. I will be posting pictures at most 10 pics only since I never posted even 1 pic and I never thought of posting one until you started this particular discussion...he he he!

I love the photos. I'm kind of new, so I don't have many up yet, but I think I'll just have a few at a time, and change them sometimes. One of my friends put something on my profile page, and I tried to comment on it, but it says I can only comment on things that my friends put there, so I think something is not working right. Like your cat picture.

Hi grandpa Bob!(",) I really don't check out other photo until now that you remind me that's why I take a look first on my friends photo. Most of their photos are not their own that is why I'm not that intersted to look at them. They were just downloaded pictures of nature, flower and cartoon characters. Ans since, its not their own photo, I don't comment on them at all.(",)Me? I only have 2 pictures, the one in my avatar and the one in my photo. Hope you'll check it out. Thanks!(",) Haven't you noticed, that here in mylot there are some functions that are not actually functional.(",) Great day!

Whether it is pictures or discussion whatever, If a person has crossed certain number of discussions/friends/photos or all put together, unless he is doing only mylot surfing it is impossible to look at everything and leave a comment in one or two days. If the discussion attracts many responses then he is stuck only in that discussion because commenting on a discussion means he has to go thru each and every response carefully. All depends on how much time he has and how much time he dedicates only to mylot.

i have tried checking 'my photos' section of a few mylot users but then i realized i simply wasted my time. usually nobody puts up their real photos except for a handful of mylotters. also they don't put up phtos which tell something about them. like i've not put my own pix in the my photos section but have tried my best to tell a lot about myself through my pictures.

I do look at some of my friends photos. I have about 8-10 on mine, I just add some new ones last night if you want to take a look. I enjoy seeing what others look like and there families also. I find it interesting to see other things they are interested in.

I do look at my friends pics and comment from time to time. But not as often as I should I guess. I know what you mean bout pages with like 200 pics. I don't bother looking past the first page usually when that's the case. I need to take some new pics to upload. I agree no more than enough for one page on profile!

I hear ya, Grandpa Bob. I just scope out the pics that I can see on my friends' page and that's it. I do leave comments every once in a while if I really like the pic. Come to think of it, I haven't check my pics out yet to see if anyone left any comments on them. lol Thanks for the reminder, Grandpa Bob.

I upload 2 photos only grandpa. Its my bunny again and his favorite food, carrot. Other than that, I'm not much into adding or updating photos. I might add some more of my precious bunny pictures in the next few days. For the friend's comments, I also try to check mine from time to time. I'm amazed some of the members have pages and pages of comments from friends. They sure have a lot of fans here at mylot. Happy posting, grandpa.

I do look at them sometimes. I like seeing people's families and pets and stuff..and where they live. I like pictures of people's houses and of the place they're from. I dont always have time to look at them, but every so often I will go through and look at them. I have only 1 on my page here so far, because I just joined yesterday, but I will put up more when I have time. if people want to look great, but if they don't it doesnt bother me. :O))
