I have been forced to read the recent comments regarding the requirements. I realize members are sensitive to the email stating that they would be removed if they didn't replace their photo. That said, I feel as mature adults we should be able to understand the responsibilities of running a meet up site and comply with the request.  I haven't had the pleasure of meeting  most of the members so believe me I'm not trying to fueling the fire, just finding if a little annoying with the complaints.  Hope this issue is resolved soon and everyone can get back to 
 the reason we joined...fun fun fun..

I agree, the requirement is sensible, but the tone of the email was overbearing / offensive to several of us, including some that already meet the requirement. There is no need ever to treat others with disrespect, whatever the reason. Anyway, I've met several nice folks in this group, including Gail & Donna, both of whom can be delightful in person. I enjoy many of our activities..have no intention of leaving, but actually hoping that this incident will result in more co-operation & camaraderie among us all, see y'all around :)!
Cheers,
Ash Pradhan

Hi Gail,

I changed my photo back in May.  I understand the importance of knowing who we are meeting up with.  This photo requirement is only for the profile picture.  I was taken aback like Ceclia too, when you were insisting that I change my profile photo.  And that was when I was new to the group. It's not the requirement that got the emails going.  But it is the way it was delivered and conveyed. 
I do hope that members of the group understand the importance of the head shot for the profile photo.
And I hope that people will follow through.  But I don't think there should be any threats to remove people if they don't follow though.
I've been out of the country for almost a month - but now I'm back and I hope I can "meet up" with everyone at a group activity soon.  I'm still new & wouldn't mind meeting people.

Thank, Donna B.

Yours is actually ok because it's a good close up.  But when you get a chance, it would help.  Come see us sometimes will ya?

Hey all.  In case you haven't come up against it yet, we now require a close up/head shot with no hats or sunglasses or other people or animals in the picture.  It's been posted in most of the events and many of you have been personally asked, some more than once, to change your photo.  It would really be appreciated if you guys could help out here and save us/me in particular, from having to harass hundreds of you who have been around a while, to update the pics.  Once you've been asked, if you continue to post a photo we can't use to recognize you, we will just remove you from events.  If in doubt, ask.  Thanks in advance for your help and cooperation.
And guys, I don't want to hear one comment from anyone complaining about this.  Do it at your peril.
