I thought about this for a little while today. I asked myself, "Why did I photo-validate my account?" For me it was simply so that I was more than just a username in the forum. I think it was partly because I felt I owed it in a way as well. I asked for advice on something, and received lots of input from members who would later turn out to be either Photo-verified or Moderators and the like. I felt that if you all were willing to take the time to address what was on my mind, I at least had to make it apparent I was really here. Either way, I was curious as to everyone's personal reasons for doing it. I'm sure there are plenty out there.
