    Don't know about Bentleys, but I know several are bent from time to time.

    Could we just used the member list and add a few profile categories? http://forums.hamisland.net/memberlist.php

    You can do a fairly advanced search, so any data we want to add to the profile, we can..

It's also a good way to get to know the new people, of which there have been quite a few, lately, and it would be nice to have one place to go, or to have a list to print out. Maybe even do a list of Call-First Name-State.

    After all, we have more of a family atmosphere on the Island than any other site, and it's all about family. Do it for the children.

    Or, in my case, for the old farts that can't remember someones name and have to fake it. Hell, at times, I can't even remember my own name, and it would be nice not having to try to remember where I left my wallet and drivers license.
    I like this approach and often try to use a persons name around here. One of the few places I bother to do it.

    As I said.. we can add "preferred handle (first name)" to the list.. we might even be able to add things like phone number, etc if y'all are interested.

    Point being.. vBulletin can probably accommodate this idea. Just let me know what y'all want and we can make it happen. :)

    Well, if the list had the call sign, preferred handle, email address, and maybe the City and State, that would suit me, and as you all should know by now, it's all about me, anyway. Maybe the city and state ins't so necessary, but I'm always curious to know where folks live. Any other info is good, too. However, I don't know if a phone number would be necessary. If someone need to call another, that info could be passed along when necessary. Maybe make it optional.

    Anyway, Jeff was kind enough to entertain the idea, and I thank you. I know it would be helpful for me, because I like to use a first name from time to time. It makes things a little more personal and friendly, and to me, that's what this place is all about. Unlike the others.

    So what say the rest of you? Ya bastids

    I'm with Eddie—call sign, preferred handle, email address, and the City and State. I don't think I want my phone number hanging out there for just anybody to call.
