Another "crazy" idea (?)

There really are a bunch of us PythOnliners on FaceBook, and many of us are mutual contacts there. But here's a thought:

Wouldn't it be nice, when new people find each other on FaceBook knowing that "hey, that guy/chick is on PythOnline, I wonder if he'll/she'll be friends with me" and send friend requests, if they added a message to the request and telling by what name are they known on PythOnline?

Would save a lot of embarrassing moments, trying to figure out "hmm, I know she's on POL but who the heck is she?"

In a nutshell:
When you send friend requests on FaceBook to other PythOnliners, please tell who you are.

Mind you, most people I know using FB have the principle of ignoring all friend requests of people they don't know who they are at that precise moment.

Carry on!

Hanri: Again, with sooooo many new members around (yay for PythOnline and The Python Army!), I'm pulling this thread up again.

Networking is fantastic! I just would like to know who I'm networking with. :)

mrsCutout: Oh the first time i had on my profile "mrs cutout' but now i removed it but every time i see a python fan and add as friend i write my name on p-line...same on utube it's so cool! Spread the word!

thewastelandr: Agreed!

Hanri: Pulling this one out in the open again, since we have manny manny new Python Army members here, and I have a bad memory for names. ;)

I don't want you ignore you on Facebook, but I'd like to know who you are! You are all lovely people!

kermit: I finally got back in to Facebook and had a lot of F/Rs waiting and I went ahead and said "this is kermit" so if any of them were from here they would know who I was. I guess the ones who weren't from here are by now wondering who the hell kermit is...
