    Seeing how we've had some great introduction threads lately, I've come up with the idea of making a single sticky thread with questions folks could answer about themselves and their collecting. It may help pair up folks who collect similar items with each other, get folks to meet new people in the community, etc.

    Sort of a "getting to know the rares community" sort of deal. I'd like to see us all expand and grow as a community beyond mere financial/trade transactions. :)

    What questions would you like to see on this? Does anyone have any suggestions?
    What information do you think would be useful or interesting to know about your fellow collectors.

    "Are they single?" isn't one of them :p

    I also think this is a great idea, and since Nails has covered just about everything under the sun I have only one thought. I like the idea of an organic introduction option as well as a list of questions one can answer about oneself. That way if somebody wants to just ramble (me) about stuff they can, and then others can answer the list of questions presented. I guess I am more interested in what everybody collects and what people do IRL, then what peoples favorite "fill in the blank" is.

    Some kind of rares collectors database with drop down menus to chose and it will give you a list on e.g. who all collect on your shard and what to collect e.g. holiday items...

    And we should ad real life pics :)
