I posted those 100+ Convention photos on Facebook as well. I had intended to suggest people not automatically tag everyone in sight, since my failure to do so is intentional -- I think people should control what appears on their profile pages, and Facebook's allowing anyone to tag a photo of someone else is a bad idea. While the person so tagged can untag themselves, it's an imposition. So in general I only tag people in photos when I'm certain it's a really good photo of them that they'd want to present.

Oops, well, too late! My industrious friends have tagged everyone. Sorry to anyone who may be peeved to have their favorite photos of themselves displaced by a flood of snapshots.

*shrug* That's life in the big city. But I didn't tag the few snaps I uploaded for the same reason, and I might still go back and remove last names.

My bad. I won't tag any of your photos again. My thought was that some people aren't going to go through 100+ (of your) photos to see if they were included.

That's a good impulse; too bad there's no "attention, you appear in a photograph" function separate from their normal tagging. This problem could be partly solved by allowing tagging variants: tag *to* a gallery, like "other photos this person appears in." Now a new tag automatically shoves the photo into a featured gallery.

I can't remember if I tagged anyone in your photo-set. Probably not. But I've been known to tag in the past! :-)

Occasional tagging of really good photos is no problem. I ask myself, if I were that person, would I want attention drawn to this photo especially? Usually the answer is no...

I've gone in and untagged several convention photos that made me look haggard or drunk. ;-)

I can't do much about the ones that make me look 56, 'cause I've vowed to gently accept reality.

"Look"? (Just kidding -- can't recall you ever looking bad.) And you look great for 56. I'm just a bit behind you, so you'll say the same for me, right?

Yes, you look great, Curtis!

Good job. Now we just have to ignore those other folks pointing and laughing!

Great pictures, and yes, I thought the same thing about the lack of green velvet curtains.
