I am curious what prompts other GTT supporters and members to go to the personal profile page of other users. This isn't a technical question as much as it is a "How / Why Others use it this way" question.
For me, it's usually to see the location of the other member at that time if they are online. Other times, it's to find out the threads where those specific members are posting.
For the most part, the members who's Profile Pages I have visited are frequently in the same threads as am I. But when I look at the list of those who have visited my profile page, some of those who have visited my page are unknown to me, which is what prompted me to pose this question.
I have also visited others personal pages to try and figure out why someone's user name was selected. For example, I was CONVINCED that ZebraFive was probably a "Active Special Forces Operative" and a shadowy figure with such a unique code name. Turns out that I was wrong about my assumptions and his reason for selecting his name was far less "descriptive", and much more realistic than I imagined...... But he is still a great guy who I hope to meet in the real world soon.......When I shared with him why I thought he had selected his User Name, I imagine he thought my reasoning for his name was a little "over creative", and he was right, again.
Perhaps there are valuable ways to use the profile pages which haven't occurred to each of us which I am hoping will be revealed and explained in the responses to this new thread.
Also, are there features or options on the Profile page which others would encourage us to use, based upon their visits and the information they may be seeking? Do those members who have selected friends communicate differently with the friends through frequent PM's, or is it merely a recognition of common interests? I get the feeling I am not using the Profile page as I could to get the most out of my "GTT experience". I am hoping others will share ideas which benefit us all.......
So if anyone has suggestions, thoughts or comments which can improve the GTT experience for all of us, I am all ears.......Well, not ALL ears, but certainly open to suggestions.
Thanks in advance for your response.
