The Official TAM 9 Photo ID Thread

After TAM 1 I noticed that a lot of forumites didn't recognize each other because we hadn't seen or provided photos to our fellow attendees. For subsequent Meetings we've started a thread in which you could post a photo of yourself. That way others can know you on sight rather than having to stare at your chest at first encounter.

Every year I give the same admonishment, so here it is - if you post a photo of you in a Halloween costume or some screencap from your favorite anime and no one recognizes you, don't bitch about how you felt excluded or didn't meet anybody or whatever.

That said, let's see them smiling faces.

LOL, I thought something similar. It's amazing how a 'look' can aid a pre-judgement.

I'd be rather impressed if anyone could corrupt me any more than I already am. Offending me is also a very difficult task.

He is a horrible roommate. He snores loudly. He drops his dirty underwear all over the room. He leaves the toilet seat up. So, no. He's not coming.

That's probably what I would wear to an 80s party.

I saw MummRa's picture and thought, "Hmm... I know I was a kid, but I don't remember anyone wearing that in the 80s..."

I don't claim to know what most of the people at TAM look like, but I still feel like this would be a very large group photo.

Hey, I take offense to all of this haranguing. That's a job reserved for my kids. :-p

And if you wear a Members Only jacket, I will simultaneously bow to you while ripping it off and lighting it on fire (Unless you combine it with jellies, or bring a sit and spin. Then, you truly are God). Garfield was king of the 80s, and don't you FORGET it!

MummRa - a bit perturbed that he apparently looks like someone else. You mean I'm *not* the only bald guy with glasses? What a pity...
