    since I´m a member here I always wonder why some members not fill out there profile and not introduce themselve a little. if they are only a reading member or also wirting sometimes a little I would say it is ok. but when they then ask for something, need help I think it is a minimum of decency to do the above.

    sometimes I get bad, sometimes good responding when I mention those who had not done what I expect. may be I´m old-fashioned and to old to find the right way in todays life? that is why I create now this poll.

    I know that this is not the right section, but can not find a better section.
    so please to the mods: move this to the right section if it is here not ok

    It's a courtesy to fill out your Profile IMO (and you don't have to include every detail of your life). If you ask a technical question about your F, and don't give the year/model/version plus your location, and don't have that information in your Profile = that tweaks my annoyance bladder some, but not to romano's level ;)

    Not all forums you have to do this. Maybe why it doesn't happen all the time!

    There have been some blow downs in the past where things got ugly. I still keep mine blank.

    We all have our differences ;). One of the more important things to know about others for me is their approximate "location" on the planet -- you don't have to give your exact home address, but knowing what continent you are located on can help with my understanding of the discussion sometimes or what action(s) might be practical or impractical.

    I thought that was filled out, Dale. You are kinda boring.:D;)

    I think once you have posts, likes, and don’t come across like ****, you’re ok. I had enough relevant info in old days, now after 14yr people know me so less relevant.

    I’d prob check out regionals too so you can meet people nearby you don’t know.

    so the majority here has the same meaning as me: introduction and filling out the profile is a must

    but sad, that more than 370 members here have read this voting and not even 10 % votet :(

    It helps ......if you are asking for help ?
    " My seat bolster is showing wear, is this normal ?"
    Depends, if you have a 250 GTO or a brand new 488 ;)
    Filling out your profile is a courtesy that is appreciated by most.

    I filled out mine when I joined just because I guess. It seemed like the gentlemanly thing to do , I dunno.

    Makes sense to do the basics.
    Country, car model(s).
    Anything else depends on what you want to get out of the forum experience.

    Decisions, decisions! I am torn between a 458 as my one and only Ferrari. The other option I'm considering is a 328 and an F430. I absolutely love the 308/328 body style, and would love to have one of those in my garage. However the performance of the 458 is stunning!. Like I said, (and as the Ferrari ad says), Decisions, decisions!!

    might be nice, but is completely optional.

    Mine is a little sketchy, but has at times contained significantly more detailed information.

    I dunno, after 10 years or so, I think most folks here have a clue as to who I am.
