May I make a suggestion. Would it be possible to display a poet's home town and country of origin along with their name on their homepage? I personally would find this helpful and very interesting to know for no other reason but curiosity. Cheers, Jack

    Hello Jack, I am from Cardiff , that is in Wales. I use the UK flag as boo hoo you dont have the Welsh one. Unfortunately, I must agree about unsavoury characters waiting to pounce on any info offerred. Cheers. Seren

    I agree on the country part. But not town. Sometimes I mention mine, but my son told me I was not being careful enough online and that it's a bad idea to be telling lots of info because of all the people out there trying to steal identities. However, I would love not having to guess a person's country every time I am here looking at their poems.

    I don't know if it really matters if the country is displayed. it is always nice to know where someone comes from and a flag is a nice idea.

    I admire the poets here who are not native English speakers.

    Jimbo is correct here Jake as is Ruben. No matter what we like to think there are still people out there that it is better not to give to much information out too either... Any how I can tell you I am from the middle of England but don't let on. xx

    Hi Jack! I'm feelin' "semi" dumb this am! ...pc (no negative vibes towards speech-impaired chaps intended) so I'll wave a red flag! I think the intention of soup is to present all participants equally, with no pre-conceived experience over 3-yrs. soup friends evolve,quite a bit is revealed! My guess is someone here knows my favorite color/where I'm from/and where I like to escape to on weekends and w/who (hint, she's 83 and close to publishing an historical memoir with University of Wisconsin Press).....jimbo
