dude, I'm going to need a super closeup shot to believe you ain't shaving.

and you haven't made up for your lack of beard growth with stellar participation either.

I am totally willing to believe this is a Mr. Moustache type situation with lack of growth just being part of your lifestyle BUT I agree with @OzzyNelson, can we get some proof you aren't shaving? Seems like 30+ days in we'd at least see some questionable stubble

I am not convinced that there has not been any shaving...

I think we may need to have a close up of whatever whiskers you've got going.

Like, @miguelito, I thought you looked 49 as well.

I'll get a close up, And I'm not shaving. When it comes to the growing of facial hair I'm not good at it. I wasn't really planning on participating this year, but it was the last one so I thought "Oh to hell to hell with it, I'll do it anyways."

love to see some evidence but I'm prone to believe you.. we've had participants in the past who couldn't really grow anything visible but kept with it. Though, in those situations, they grew massive moustaches.. just nothing else. It seems you've got a pretty barren playing field going on!

@frog, you aren't participating. You've posted 12 pictures and commented way less than twice per day. That's not participating.

@Ozzy Nelson: Why so pissed, man? I don't have anyone who can take my picture on a regular basis, and I think that just a picture of me at my desk is kinda boring so I post pictures I think are worthwhile that I can take on my own. I didn't know we were supposed to be commenting twice a day, i didn't see that anywhere and once again, this is my first time here. I can understand that people think I'm shaving because I grow really slowly(First time actually growing a beard).
@mackle: These pictures are kinda blurry, I don't really know anything about photography. If someone could advise me on how to take a non-fuzzy picture at this distance I'd appreciate it. clame

Wow. Tough day on the frog. Hang in there brother. Once this shaving thing gets cleared up, get out there and make some comments. That's the biggest issue with participation. If you've recieved more comments than you've given, people are going to have a hard time thinking that you're participating. And as you've noticed it's a big deal. As far as you pics. Man just post something. I'm new here to, and you will get what you give. Make comments. Post pictures. And don't shave. A very simple three part recipe to success. PEACE.

@ThatGuy provides a nice primer. While the surface of Whiskerino is to grow a beard and document the growth the real point behind it is to socialize / communicate / interact with all the other members. Two comments a day is paltry in comparison to what is expected for optimum enjoyment of Whiskerino.

I know nothing of photography nor do I have anyone to take my photos either. I've got a simple point and shoot and I fiddle around with it until I've got something I'm decently happy with. I think in your case you might want to look into a Macro mode to get a good look at things. And I don't mean to say that in a mean way, you have admitted to slow growth.

So, the basic idea is to grow a beard and since you've admitted to being a slow grower (37 days with no visible growth) I think it's safe to say you'd actually get something out of the site if you participated via comments / chat. Otherwise you'll just have 4 months, 20 photos and no beard. What fun is that?
