Any major website: (ie - slashdot/fark/memepool/etc...) Please don't link to this. My server is set up on my local cablemodem, and you would annihilate me. If someone wants to post a mirror and use that, fine, just don't hammer my site, please.Any major website: (ie - slashdot/fark/memepool/etc...) Please don't link to this.

OK, so we have 44 contestants involved. All are slashdotters (the list is my next JE). Have fun attempting to figure out who is who based on their pictures.
The front page (with every pic thumbnailed) is http://www.marotti.com/slashdot/index.html.

Update: I am no longer accepting pictures. What you see is what you get.

Picture 001 (2)

FortKnox (169099) | more than 11 years ago | (#5866821)

Small pic, blonde, and a small pic [marotti.com] (hey, not everyone has access to a digital/web cam, nor do they have a lot of pics to go through) ;-)

Who could this be?

THIS IS NOT A VOTE... or a "threat" but a questio (1)

heliocentric (74613) | more than 11 years ago | (#5866982)

Do not START a threat[sic]. I will start a thread for each picture that links to the appropriate picture. Your guesses belong as a reply to that parent message for that particular picture (I was gonna post as an AC, but I didn't wanna have to deal with the goatse fake links and such).

Are we also in our non-threads to vote for who we think is the hottest/sexiest/whatever guy and girl?

Re:THIS IS NOT A VOTE... or a "threat" but a quest (1)

FortKnox (169099) | more than 11 years ago | (#5866998)

sure, just don't use a karma bonus (so if you do "highest score first", it'll show all the pics up front). I'll add it to the journal description.

If you're fixing things, also fix that "don't start a threat" where I think you meant "thread."

Some users give away their ethnic background in their alias, or what their JEs say [marotti.com] . But that doesn't mean someone you "thought" was your average white american is something else, right?

Exactly. For example, I'm a lithe, black, lesbian, female ballet dancer. All that wife and kid stuff is a fraud. The photos came from some (REAL cheap) stock art packages.

So, how does one go from an innocent child [marotti.com] to a crazy teenager with a knife [marotti.com] to a cannable [marotti.com] (what IS it with licking people... seriously!), to a stylish adult in a cool B&W pic [marotti.com] ? Guess he got away with all his crimes ;-)

Incase my post isn't interpreted as a vote I'm going to go with FK himself as this one, hence his own inability to toss in something creepy against himself as a comment.

This post will be the 60 something-ith post to this JE so far... even if we don't make the /. hof for a thread, any clue as to what the largest JE has been to this date?

At this rate when this thing gets picked over tomorrow during daylight on the East coast it should break 200 no problem.

I woulda remembered hearing about another beemer that I've posted to that admitted so such a thing. It could just be a vendor shirt for buing 4 hard drives or something nerdly like that and in the voting just to throw us off.
