Facebook... only 154 to go?

I added my own pic just now. You should, too...
it's mostly painless.

It seems like we've got two separate revisions going, neither of which
has everyone:
Here's the version that Hal Fulton is on:

..and here's a revision close to what you actually see on the page right now..

Someone want to freeze the page and merge them, or is there a better
way to get everyone in one place?

Hmm. How did we end up with two?

I prefer the numbered one, I think.

I suspect that one of these is in the tarpit. If your title bar says
RUBY, then you're in the tarpit and need to log in so as to modify the
real page.

Okay. That's really annoying. I understand the purpose of the tarpit, but it looks like a goodly number of us got snared by it inadvertantly. This Facebook idea was good, but the wiki has done anything but facilitate it, it seems.

/me throws his hands up in disgust.

To clarify, does case matter here? My title bar says "Ruby: ..."
Is it only uppercase "RUBY" that indicates the tarpit?

Well... I see "Ruby:" on both, but "RUBY" on neither.

Case matters. I'm not sure that this is a case of the tarpit, having
looked at it. I think that it is simply stomped editing. If I have
time, later, I may go through and try to put it all right, when I put
my picture up (haven't decided which picture to use).

And where is the hoodwink.d layer so we can all leave snarky comments about the pix?

OK.. I made an account, and now the title bar says 'Ruby', rather than 'RUBY'.
I checked the two lists against each other, and added the four missing
people to the 'real' list.
44. Wilson Bilkovich
45. Steven Baker
46. Jeremy Hubert
47. JamisBuck

It's evil that the "correct" list isn't directly viewable without
logging in, though.

Uh... I thought I added that? hum?... ohhhh, you must be stuck in the hoodwink.d tarpit.

Is the name "Gail" capitalized in the title bar? I'd say you're probably in the tarpit, if so.

But tell me, is there a 3-d rendering of a duck eating a beef sandwich in the upper corner? Yeah, then you're in the tarpit.

Oh and did a cowboy just pop out of the bottom left corner and start nailing egg cartons to the web page? Okay, then FOR SURE you're in the tarpit.

Just hop off that subnet and you'll be fine. Thanks for bringing this to my attentiveness.

Just how *does* one log in? The log in page (I think I found it) appears, for me right now, to be in the tarpit a well.

Although, just now, navigating from the main page, I was able to get to what I think is the low-tar Face page.

I went to the "Preferences" page, linked from HomePage, and set some.
That seemed to do the trick.

It's in the tarpit, but as soon as you have the cookie, you can
refresh and you'll be out of the tarpit. At least, that's the theory.

Ok, I've figured that out. Now where do I store the picture to link to?
