    I imagine others have asked this, but why do so many of us here fail to put some info in your profile? It really makes carrying on a discussion with someone easier if you know a little bit about age, what types of music you like/play, gear, etc. If you don't want to add personal details like exact birthday or location, leave them out....but at least consider putting in enough that you're more than just a nickname.

    I know we all start to feel like we know each other, but we really don't. And there are lots of "lurkers" that we definately dont know who they are, so some anonymity isn't neccesarily a terrible thing. This is the Internet afterall.

    Well, as I recall, there's nothing specific other than birthday in the profile form. You can just put down the year there. Limit "location" to just a general area. But gear, influences, etc... Why do we need to keep all that a secret?
