I really miss the "Pictures of your Plastic!" thread.

Am I the only one that misses that thread? I thought it was so cool to see all the different cards people have and the diverse designs on each card. I know it got canceled due to security reasons, but I thought that was such and awesome thread. I feel if people were more careful posting pics, it could still be viable... but I digress..

Re: I really miss the "Pictures of your Plastic!" thread.

 

I agree (I think we all do) that it was interesting. 

 

However, I think it was a huge headache for the mods.  They (someone) has to try to "police" that, someone could easily put up someone else's real cards as a  joke or some kind of revenge thing and the mods would have to be sure nothing usable was showing.  And that (as many will verify) was a very long thread.

 

I also think it was a great trigger for many people to develop the "app itch" and I mean severely.  Many people here need to avoid that as much as possible anyway, the last thing they need is "credit porn" to kick off an app spree.  :smileylol:

I miss the thread as well, but it was only a matter of time before something serious happened because of it.

Re: I really miss the "Pictures of your Plastic!" thread.

It's unfortunate how a few people can ruin something for everyone. There are alternative ways to remedy the issues but the mods are busy enough to have to closely monitor one thread. It's too bad but I understand too.
