Slashdot Photo Contest 3, Send'm in! [UPDATED]

OK, looks like we'll do it the way we did the first contest. Just follow along if you don't know whats going on.OK, looks like we'll do it the way we did the first contest. Just follow along if you don't know whats going on.

First things first. You can send up to 5 pictures. If you are sending more than one, at least one of them has to contain your face in it (some past people would wear outfits for stuff they are into, etc...). If you want to have fun with it, try to get a pic of yourself doing something you always talk about, or add a subtle clue to who you are.
All pictures are to be sent to me, along with your slashdot ID. Lemmie say that again since this is the one rule everyone seems to forget in both previous contests... Tell me your slashdot ID in the email!!! I don't know half your names, and have trouble remembering all my relatives names. I'm not a name person. Just tell me your id in the email and save me the time of having to reply to get it, ok? ;-)
Ok, the subject needs to contain "Slashdot" or "Photo Contest" so my rule will catch it and put it in a place I have setup to deal with the contest. Try not to sound too spamish... I really trust my spambayes not to false positively hit emails, but don't try and test it ;-)
Emails need to be sent to josh _at_ Don't forget the subject and slashdot alias (and pic(s), duh). I already got some pics in one of my three email addresses. Sorry, but resend them. I want to start off cleanly here.

After I get a good dozen, I'll post'm up on a site and post the URL. After about a week, I'll stop accepting pictures and post the list of aliases you get to choose from and the contest will begin.

In the past people have made up 'categories' and ranked people (best looking, etc...). Please please PLEASE have fun with this. There are no prizes, there are no awards... just to have fun, so go ahead and add fun if you can think of any other way!

OK, some pointers:
First, if anyone has an old contest page, please take it down.
If you have a pic of yourself somewhere on the web that's easy to find (like, from your slashdot profile), take it down for the contest.
If you have a large fan-base, write a journal w/o comments and link to me so we can get a ton of people in on this. The more the merrier!


Any questions or whatever, post here and I'll get back to you tonight or tomorrow night or over the weekend.

Update: JtS & Bltzu2... NO NUDE MALE PHOTOS!
Bethanie... as always, you can send whatever you like ;-)

No hard date when I'll stop accepting pics, but I'll give you a good couple days notice. Will probably stop after next weekend, so you all have plenty of time still.

People that have been in past contests and want it not to be so easy... try and send profile pictures... I've seen a couple people's pics, and the profiles of people I know have been harder for me to recognize. May be something to consider....

And apparently a nekkid Btlzu2, special just for Technolust.

Two short questions in one (1)

Do you have a preferred image resolution and filesize?

Re:Two short questions in one (1)

FortKnox (169099) | more than 9 years ago | (#11912206)

Not too big, but I'll resize them if they are. I made restrictions the past two times, but people still sent me gigantor pics. So just be nice and send'm in regular sizes. If not, I'll just resize'm myself.

And, bethanie, I -do- want to see you nekkid!
And, no, bltzu2/TL/any male, I don't wanna see you nekkid :-P

btlzu2 (99039) | more than 9 years ago | (#11913958)

Where the hell did that start? I ain't showing ANYONE but fdb my boobies!

Re:Two short questions in one (1)

FortKnox (169099) | more than 9 years ago | (#11914122)

your JE said you sent in pics, including a 'special one only for TL'... We ain't stoooopid, yo.

Re:Two short questions in one (1)

btlzu2 (99039) | more than 9 years ago | (#11915330)

Considering the picture in question is of a building in the great Ohio town of Cleveland, I think you guys would rather have had a picture of me naked.... ;)

deadline? (1)

tuxette (731067) | more than 9 years ago | (#11907906)

I'll try to get some pics taken this weekend...

Damn (1)

jawtheshark (198669) | more than 9 years ago | (#11908433)

It has to have my face? I thought I could make it a bit more difficult by actually avoiding that part. Oh, well then....

Re:Damn (1)

baldass_newbie (136609) | more than 9 years ago | (#11908500)

I guess that picture of my left foot is out...

Re:Damn (1)

jawtheshark (198669) | more than 9 years ago | (#11908653)

Yeah, and I wanted to send a pic of me nude without my face visible.... Guess that won't be feasible either ;-)))

Re:Damn (1)

btlzu2 (99039) | more than 9 years ago | (#11910745)

You wacky, free-wheeling Europeans you! :)

Considering your nick (1)

TheConfusedOne (442158) | more than 9 years ago | (#11909138)

A shot of your backside would be a dead give-away.

Now we will just have rely on all those ugly Eagles garments that he is known to wear.

Re:Damn (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 9 years ago | (#11914799)

I don't have a left foot you insensitive clod!!!!

After about a week? (1)

dead sun (104217) | more than 9 years ago | (#11909910)

How about a hard deadline? Give us a date and a time, or give seconds past the epoch if you wish.

They're on the way (1)

johndiii (229824) | more than 9 years ago | (#11911761)

Winging their way through the ether, so to speak. :-)

Take down my pic? (1)

Zaranne (733967) | more than 9 years ago | (#11912610)

And how am I supposed to get dates if I take down my pic from every place its at out on the 'net. You sure do wanna mess with my love life...

*realizes she doesn't HAVE a love life* *decides to go ahead and enter anyway*

Re:Take down my pic? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 9 years ago | (#11938642)

Can I put some love in your life?

Re:Take down my pic? (1)

Zaranne (733967) | more than 9 years ago | (#11940355)

Sure...I'm accepting packages 24/7...will it come via UPS or FedEx?

Uh huh. Uh huh uh huh. (1)

LPetrazickis (557952) | more than 9 years ago | (#11914132)

I will send in a few pics later tonight, but I have no intention whatsoever of taking down anything. People should not dishonour themselves by cheating in a contest without prizes in the first place.;)

Not Been Around (1)

Morosoph (693565) | more than 9 years ago | (#11915410)

But I've started reading the journals again. I was sent here by Some Woman (or rather her journal [] ;-) ).

I've two photos that can be retrieved from my home [] page [] (or by following the above links). Just thought that I'd do my bit :-)

Bye bye...

Re:Not Been Around (1)

red5 (51324) | more than 9 years ago | (#11916052)

You're supposed to take down pictures of you and email them to FK. That way nobody will know which one is you and the guessing fun can ensue. I didn't look. Take 'em down quickly so you can still hold your own in the contest.

Okay. Deleted. (1)

Morosoph (693565) | more than 9 years ago | (#11916085)

I did remember to get them first :o)

Now to email FK...

SolemnDragon (593956) | more than 9 years ago | (#11915806)

AFTER the photo contest is good and over, please repost your old photo contest pages so we have them to compare notes!

Re:but (1)

FortKnox (169099) | more than 9 years ago | (#11917178)

absolutely... they still exist in the same form, but I simply made it so no one had permission to view them. They'll return when we finish this one.

Re:but (1)

blinder (153117) | more than 9 years ago | (#11917827)

but seriously though... this deadline... i am going to an event next weekend (3/19) and the friend i'm going with has said they want to get plenty of silly pictures of me (because, as they alluded to, there just aren't enough silly pictures of me... let alone just regular pictures of me).

and yeah, no more obscure photos taken from CD liner notes from a decade ago behind a drum kit... i swear *hangs head*


Anonymous Coward | more than 9 years ago | (#11918008)

Brett Favre has officially announced that he is coming back for at least one more season and all you can talk about is a Photo Contest?


You should have mine now. (1)

Scott Lockwood (218839) | more than 9 years ago | (#11918037)

Can't wait to see the resulting page!

Sexism? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 9 years ago | (#11919079)

I don't get it. Why only women can send nude pictures? As far as my on-line presence goes, I am far better known for my private parts than for my face. Why can't I send a picture which would be objectively the most appropriate instead of blindly following your sexist prudence?

Re:Sexism? (1)

SamTheButcher (574069) | more than 9 years ago | (#11922538)

Jeff Gannon, you stick to online reporting and stay out of our photo contest!!

TL? Is that you?

NO FAIR!!! (1)

johndiii (229824) | more than 9 years ago | (#11928662)

You like Bethanie better than us! :-)

(I would hope so, anyway :-D)

Status? (1)

bryanthompson (627923) | more than 9 years ago | (#11932204)

How many entries do you have? I sent mine in!

Re:Status? (1)

FortKnox (169099) | more than 9 years ago | (#11937608)

Lots... tons. So many it'll take me a while to setup a page with them all. Please be patient. I will try to get it setup tonight.

red5 (51324) | more than 9 years ago | (#11946128)

Don't make me put a spcae in your name.
