I do not respond without a picture. I made that mistake once before.

Clyde,

It is unfortunate the upload thing isn't working for you and of course that can be frustrating. Maybe try from another computer, or is the file size too big? Or is it the forbidden text? Regardless, even tho you have a technical glitch of some kind --- you should still understand that no pic is going to be an automatic turn off for most women and so not having one is a little self-defeating if your goal is to GET positive response. It's just the way it is ....

If nothing else you may want to explain your plight on your profile so at least the women that do take the time to get that far will know you're not "hidin" out. Noticed you also skipped filling out the "appearance" description. That probably isn't helping either?

I sooooo disagree and agree with the ladies. A pic is a MUST. I however don't automatically delete... if the profile is interesting (or I'm bored : ) I'll request a pic. And 100% of the time they have had the pic to send. So why not post on profile? I dunno. Have never talked to any of these guys long enough to find out. Maybe THAT is telling alone : )



WHY NOT?? Because BK SUX. I have the photos to send but thanks to the BK system they don't post.

OTOH I have them on a CD and would be GLAD to send them to anyone that has an E-male address.

How many here realize that electronic male, commonly referred to as E-m . . . is a forbidden word on BK. Try posting with the forbidden term E-. . . . and it won't post.

You can't even post by spelling male if it contains the letter "i" wile leaving off the "e".

I am the same way.I live in Mo,So Show Me the picture that is.LOL



Well, Ms. MO do the tricy way to bypass the E-male thingy that BK has and I'll send you a photo, but not via BK because their system for
posting photos SUX! :(:(:(

I have all kinds of stuff on CD and all I have to do is click on E-male, the photo, and put in an E-male addy and it's DONE!

Sooooooooooooooooooo, anyone wanting a photo of me will bypass BK and send me their E-male addy to c*m*bik*er20*01at yhe "Y" thing and I'll be happy to send it.

I'm DONE with BK and their clunky system. It has already wasted too much of my time and NONE of the things sent to me by various people WORKED! :(:( Thanks to yho guys for the advice though! It isn't YOUR fault it doesn't work.

Totally agree with this part of Ldy_H statement.


But YOU don't have a photo posted. Do you have the capability or are you in hiding? :)

In this case, I have to defend those without digital cameras, scanners, and web cams. Not everyone can afford or has the know-how to be able to get a pic online. Doesn't mean they are a bad person or hiding something, as long as they are upfront about it.
I too prefer pics, but I don't automatically delete them if no pic. I will review the profile and respond one way or other.
One thing I have seen done is to post a pic and then make a forum post. Delete your pic, and for some reason the forum still has it when you post. Don't know if it still works, but it is one way to get your photo out there but not all the way out there.
And for all those ladies who have said it doesn't matter what a guys looks like, it's what's inside that's important, how many of you delete the guys if they don't have a pic? Not exactly living your own words, are ya?

Sorry, but that isn't TRUE. I have a CD that I loaded with pictures from a couple of bike trips and BK won't load ANY of them. If anyone would like a pic, do the c*m*b*iker2001At the Y . . . .thingy. I'll be happy to supply a pic. . . .. NOT hidng anything
just hooked up with BK, a poor system, so I'm STILL without a photo.

BTW, your photo is greaaaaaattttt, but some on here there is NO WAY to ID a person from the photo they have posted.

It's already been renamed, but it didn't make any difference.

I have tried sending a pic from the hard drive AND the CD. The results are the same, NIL, even after renaming. The browse thing wants to send the entire contents of my pics that I have loaded on EITHER!

What really cracks me up is all these road signs and telephone messages that direct you to a web site.

NOT EVERYONE in this country has a computer and not everyone tht has a comnputer has the capability of sending a picture. Hellll, I don't even have a printer that would work on my laptop, but it would work on one of my other computers, but they still can't send pictures.

I don't have anything to hide, just don't have the capability to send pictures.

hmmmm.. If you have a computer, camera, and cd drive with access to the internet U should be able to send a photo...

I have a computer and a CD where I loaded a bunch of pics. Each pic has a file number, but when I do the browse thing and put in the file number, like 070_70.JPG BK gets the message for the entire contents of the CD.

How to . . . . .?????




Try renaming the file number from 070_70.JPG to something like 07070.jpg...in a photo program or just put a name to it like "ME" lol... the "_" may be interfering somehow? and Select the photo from the hard drive instead of the CD, after you copy to the hard drive.. Only a suggestion here.. If you can somehow send the photo to them and they can post it for you too... Instructions at the update profile screen... Any thing beyond this Ive no clue...

OK, if you give me step by step instructions on how to post a pic on BK, an step by step on how get a regular size picture that is 4 X 6, but has three X's the number allowable pixels per BK, I'll post one, one that has me wearing my "BIKER" T-shirt that I picked up at the "Biker, Blues, an BBQ" rally in the Ozarks last year.

The pic falls withing the BK "Maximum 200 KB file size per photo", but has 3 X's the allowable pixels.

You can agree all you want, but I call the "no Pic" thing making assumptions or judgements.
