Hey everyone--

I am loving all the pictures lately and really have no problem with them, but I'm wondering if the males in our midst may be getting a little tired of them and miss the days of discussion of the band and their music.

What would everyone think about starting a "side project" community that's primarily for picture posting/drooling? If you like the idea, do you have any suggestions for names? u2photos, u2girls, ????

Personally, I'm okay with the pics myself. Although, if you did start a group for posting pics, drooling, or whatever, don't call it U2girls...or well, you could, but I'd feel really weird joining it. I'd still join though, only cause I like seeing pics of the band.

I think U2Photos is good.. U2Girls would make it seem like guys were not allowed ;p I would not want to upset any one ;)

I didn't mean to make anyone feel bad at all. It's just the bombarding of photos that we get is silly after awhile. We know they are very popular, don't get me wrong. I've just never been one to oogle at pics of my favorite musicians and fantasize about having sex with them and all that. I have better things to do. Again, I'm sorry if I offended anyone.

I don't think anyone was offended, but by creating a seperate community for such things as pictures, for those who like them, would ease the spamming in your journal. Or anyone else who does not want to see the volume of pictures that has been here these past few days.

Ditto that. Not offended at all either.

So does someone volonteer to create a community?? I would, but I know nothing about this sort of thing. But hey, I could learn I guess, in the case no one wants to do it.

So?

I think it is the same as creating a journal.

Ok, then going once, going twice... sold to me.

So we are going by U2Photos, right?

Will be back with an address shortly. :-)

Here's a FAQ on creating communities.

I'll do it, unless someone else has started it already.......
If no one says they are I will start one in a couple hours.....

I'm seconding this. Hey, I'm glad there are so many U2 fans out there, and I know the women are going to like them and have their fantasies about them (hell, probably a few men will too!), but I do admit it gets a little tiring when there's picture after picture being posted. Having another community meant specifically for the pics would be cool, I think.

No worries, Ray, I think you just voiced what several people were feeling. =)

sssssshhh now...telling someone to simmah down can just get them more riled up! She has every right to feel her feelings, just as you do. I think it's best to drop it now. =)

I think just posting the url to the pic would have worked fine, but since another community is needed Jentwo *should have* been the one to create it since it was her idea in the first place.

Heya Aims, thank you. I hope this in no way offends you, since you created this community! (right?) This will definitely remain the center of awesome discussion about the world's greatest band. =)

No way Jen it doesn't offend me! I was actually getting tired of my friends page taking so long to load. Don't get me wrong, I *love* seeing the guys pics n all - but I live in the serious boonies and am connected at a mere 24.4kbps which totally sucks!
Anyway, I just wanted to voice my opinion that I think *you* should be the one to create the new community for the pics since you thought it up! Zatz All!

End of the phone line, beginning of the tree line, middle of the mountain & there is a moose in my neighborhood. But at least I am online!

Reminds me of those old McDonalds commercials with Larry Bird and Michael Jordan - off the scoreboard, off the ceiling, off the backboard, nothing but net.

Excellent, I'd glad there are no bad feelings.

This way, you can always click on the link to the u2photos page and go do something else for a bit, knowing it will take awhile to load, and it won't fuck up your regular journal reading!

It doesn't really matter who made it - just that it's there and available.

True, but if it's really that big an issue, ownership of the community could always be handed to someone else.
