Yup. Agreed - I'd meant to make that point in my post above - I am not against people listing non-computer/software/technology related interests as this gives me, and others, a better idea of who they are and what makes them tick!
Given what CWuestefeld brought to the table above, what would you see as a amiable arrangement? He does present a valid point?
The only issue I can see is that in order to accomodate everyone's interests we'd need a LOT of medallions
I *think* that we could have, say, 5 - 10 medallions and users can pick 5 as you suggested. These could be very broad categories such as "photography", "software", "development", "music", etc. I dunno... now that you've challenged me to come up with a suggestion I can see how difficult this would be, because we'd probably need an enourmous diversity of medallions to accomodate the enormous diversity that exists here at DC. Food for thought.
Great suggestion, though, nonetheless, CodeTrucker
While I typed the above tinjaw and jgpaiva weighed in and made valid points. I still like the idea, despite tinjaw's comments. Why? Because I often forget to click on a poster's personal page. Regarding jgpaiva's suggestion that we each create our own medallions, I think that that would get out of hand, fast. For one thing, look at the differences in opinion that we've already seen about how to represent improvisation! If people start putting medallions up there's got to be some standardization so that everyone knows what the medallions are meant to represent!
