Many years ago the original Rogue's Gallery was a thread started to give members a place to post a photograph of themselves so that other members could see what they looked like in real life. The thread went on for several years and reached 669 pages before finally being retired with the introduction of our IPB Gallery.
While the IPB Gallery did ( and still does ) provide an easy way to post a picture what it didn't do is recapture the light hearted atmosphere of an active long-running thread that people enjoyed with the original Rogue's Gallery.
There really is only one solution to that... lets have both.
Introducing Rogue's Gallery #2 - as before we're looking for photographs of you whether its in your house or on holiday, whether your posing for the shot or caught unawares, whether you are dressed up to the nines or having a bad hair day - lets try and beat that 669 page record. Also this time lets see how many pictures we can get of UM members meeting up or posing next to their computers while browsing the site.
There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.

Sure, I will put a few random pics up!
I remember the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says: "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." I suppose we all thought that, one way or another." - J. Robert Oppenheimer.
