Now this is of course not without reason, and some may like this anonymity (for example, in personal message, I often use my own name, but on the public forum I hesitate to do so), while others use their full name as forum handle. There have been threads (e.g. this one three years ago) where new members posted some info, or even photos of themselves, and these were fairly popular. Speaking for myself, I was pleasantly surprised to experience the mismatch between how I envisioned members and how they envisioned themselves. Anyway, why not start a thread like this again? You can post anything about yourself that you want to share - if you don't want to share any private information, that's fine as well, please share some information about your collection or some cool recent acquisitions (but then, please include why you share this specific coin). You can share anything (that is in compliance with Cointalk rules, of course): where do you live, what's your personal life like, do you have any peculiar interests, any hobbies besides coins? Do you have a job? How did you get entangled in this forum, or in the coin collection hobby in general? So, in conclusion, post anything you feel comfortable sharing!
