I'm being selective of where I post pictures and other content on the internet for the next few months because I'm applying to colleges, and I don't want something they might find on the internet to hinder my acceptance to that particular school.

Yep because I'm a photographer (other account) and I'm my main "free 24/7" model. So why not?

I have a pic up, because I like when other`s have a picture of themselves up so I can see the artist behind all the masterpieces :) Not that my art is anything close to masterpieces, but you know....

Photos of yourself are cool. That way people can see who you are. I can see why some people may not want to though.

None of the above. I posted about three pics of myself in order to use them as an ID or something like that, but I don't take pics of myself with the objective of posting them here ^^

Nope, no photos of me in my DA. xD
I mean, I mainly post traditional art things, what's the point of adding a photo? xD
I think DA is different from a blog.. for me at least.
But I do enjoy seeing how the people in my friends list look like :D [too easy, I know xD]

Since I do lots of photos as well as drawing, if one day I post some of my works, and there's a picture of me I like, I'll post it. Even if I may not say that is me xDDD [yes, I am kind of shy in these things xDD]

I'd rather stay private but I wouldn't mind that much if it contributed to some learning experience; Like practicing photography or capturing an essence within myself (if that makes any sense). But I don't really do that and lack the equipment as well. Also, I'm careful not to scare off any people so far, because, well, I'm really not good looking, I just feel it, and I also feel that others will eh, run away or go 'eww' if they see me ^^; So ya =]

I do, mainly for reference pics to my vector images, or for my photomanipulations, I like to model for my own pics ^^. And I'll occasionally get a casual snapshot here and there.

i don't want some creepy people bothering me if they know what i look like, and i personally think you can't trust people with what you look like. that's why i tend to cover myself.unless of course it was a cosplay or something.

haha.. ich muss leider zugeben, dass ich auf fast allen meinen bildern selbst zu sehen bin.

in dem moment in dem ich eine idee hab und kreativ sein will, ist meist niemand da außer mit selbst! deshalb mach ich das alles selbst, photo, makeup, model, concept ...

normale fotos von mir.. also nicht künstleriche kann ich nicht ausstehen!!!

No...because I feel they are not truly artistic, they're just something a friend snapped real quick because I was making a funny face.

And I'd like to remain at least partially anonymous, even though my username is splattered everywhere of the internet.

Nope. But it doesn't really have anything to do with guarding my privacy :)
I'm simply not particularly good at taking portraits [regardless whether they're portraits of people around me, or self-portraits], so I just didn't get myself around posting any pictures of self on DA....

For me is, seeing the face behind the work is important. Sometimes I can see why he or she makes what they make.

But I don't have photos of myself having a bad hair day (which is almost every day now). That would be interesting ;)

Sure. It's one of my ways of experssing myself. And when I model for other photographers, it's always for my personal friends who I trust, respect my boundaries and have their own.

So, I deleted and people have to look at the artwork, where other artists used me as model

Ah well. Yes I'm a cosplayer, my costumes fit me best ;D I don't look very much like me when I'm wearing a wig (what's usually the case....). I don't care about one or two pics, but I'd rather not upload loads of pics that show me in my normal state because I don't like my looks ^^;

Sites like StudiVZ are disgusting because it's all about "who has the most ugly pictures of friends (being all drunk from the last party...)"
I'm not registered there so people will find no fun in uploading pics of me because they can't link me. HA!.

No... It's weird enough when people recognize me from work and I have no clue who they are. I can't even wrap my head around the idea of people figuring me out from the 'net.
As a result, unless you reeeeealy put some time into it, you're not going to find anything other than a little blue avatar of me.
