Twice in the last week, I've had people who apparently have nothing at all to do with polymer clay make me a flickr contact. One has absolutely NO photos, the other had some nature shots, mostly to do with a pregnant snake.

Anyone else find this weird and suspicious?

Nope, not initially.

I find a lot of people don't have photos posted yet so I look to see who their other friends / contacts are. Often they're either other clay folks or other topics in relation folks.

Not to say you won't occasionally get creepy critters but overall... not.

OK, I'll try not to be too spooked by it. I've just never had anyone who wasn't obviously into clay make me a contact.

Wow, I'm sounding very paranoid; maybe time to get the tinfoil hat out ..... LOL

i've had that happen a few times lately.  i thought maybe it was possible that these people were just beginners and didn't have any clay pics of their own yet.  I know when I first started, all I did was look at other people’s pics.  I would spend hours and hours looking at cool stuff.

Then, just the other day, i had a girl comment on one of my canes.  she said something like "i like it.  but what is it."  i'm not sure how she even came to see the pic because i don't usually put any descriptions on any of my pics. ???

Remember, just because a person makes you a contact doesn't mean you have to do the same. If pregnant snakes aren't your speed, skip them...

I think if they make you a contact that just means it keeps them up to date on the cool pics you post.  I have had people who aren't the least bit crafty make me a contact just cos they like what I make. Be flattered not creeped out.  And as someone else said-you don't have to return the favor.
