Photo Contest: take 2, and Ohio Meetings?

FortKnox (169099) writes | more than 10 years ago

OK, its been suggested several times. New people have stopped by, and new people were too coward. So, do we have interest in a second photo contest? I have tomcat attached to my server, so I can actually make it somewhat interesting (putting in a voting poll and such). Of course, with newer pictures, old people can re-participate (I'll even take down the old contest page so people will forget what you look like) ;-). What do you say? Wanna join in?OK, its been suggested several times. New people have stopped by, and new people were too coward. So, do we have interest in a second photo contest?

Also, as people meet one another, I'd like to mention that if anyone is anywhere in the stretch of Toledo to Cinci to Columbus, OH, I'd be happy to meet anyone (and I'm sure glh would also jump on board). In case anyone is in town or whatever.

Take a regular picture of yourself, go to your local supermarket, put a checkmark next to "put all pics on a CD" and pay an extra couple bucks.

Em Emalb (452530) | more than 10 years ago | (#6850708)

I know. And I have done it in the past, I would prefer to have one where i didn't break the camera though.

Slow down Cowboy! You got a lot to say and not much time to say it in, but damned if we won't make you wait for a full 2 minutes just to piss you off!

Karma excellent? Who cares, you are obviously a crap flooder! Oh, and you need to get a life, FortKnox. It's obvious you spend all your time on slashdot.

Heh. Betcha Michael wishes that would die a silent death eh?

Damnit. Still gotta wait some more. I guess I'll just leave this tab open and submit later. Bubai little comment. Have fun storming the castle!

Don't worry. I've found pictures of you. (1)

eugene ts wong (231154) | more than 10 years ago | (#6852531)

Em, why don't you submit these pictures?

Em, I just want to say that I'm big fan of yours, I hope that that whole misunderstanding about fighting with yourself, & the Ikea furniture didn't cause problems with your acting career.

Em Emalb (452530) | more than 10 years ago | (#6853700)

Dangit Eugene! Now you've done it.

Now Selma and I won't get a moments peace.

First it was the paparazzi, now slashdot too?

*sigh*

Where's that foe button. ;)

Good one dude. Didn't figure anyone remembered back that far in Journal land.

Sounds fun (1)

Jellybob (597204) | more than 10 years ago | (#6850476)

You can count me in, since I should even have some recent photos sometime soon, having just been on holiday.

Count me in! (1)

MonTemplar (174120) | more than 10 years ago | (#6850524)

Maybe Em can get a fellow-Slashdotter to scan a pic of his mug, so we can visualise who to hate on the next time he turns out a really sucky poll... :-)

Re:Count me in! (1)

Em Emalb (452530) | more than 10 years ago | (#6850558)

Uh....OUCH?

Damn dude, got both of my feelings hurt today.

One got offended by your comment and beat the crap out of the other one.

Scary stuff, but like a train wreck or Toughman competitions, you can't look a way.
Ok, back to the lab to give life to a new poll. ;)

Re:Count me in! (1)

MonTemplar (174120) | more than 10 years ago | (#6850622)

Uh....OUCH?

Dude, you missed the smiley on my message!

Yeah, do us a Poll, Em. Seeing as how that work-shy Surak has bunked of compiling this weeks Recap and all... :-)

MT.

Re:Count me in! (1)

Em Emalb (452530) | more than 10 years ago | (#6850662)

Yeah, I saw it. Was being silly as usual. ;)

Slow Down Cowboy!

Slashdot requires you to wait 20 seconds between hitting 'reply' and submitting a comment.

It's been 15 seconds since you hit 'reply'! You must type fast! Wohoo, want a job?

Re:Count me in! (1)

SamTheButcher (574069) | more than 10 years ago | (#6850925)

scan a pic of his mug

And not just a picture of *a* mug, like some lamers might do. ;)

So you did click on the link, then? :-)

(Oh yeah, the old photo links in my Journal won't work anymore, as I cleaned out my webspace prior to starting up Redunser v3.0)

MT.

sure thing (1)

subgeek (263292) | more than 10 years ago | (#6850690)

i'd be up for that. i even have more recent pics. i will make them smaller this time. i'll also wait on wedding photos until after the contest, so i can pretend it's going to be hard for people to remember or something.

Yeah...photo contest sounds good. (1)

Surak (18578) | more than 10 years ago | (#6850918)

As of this point, there's only ONE Slashdotter who knows what I look like (AFAIK), so they'll have a hard time identifying me for sure. ;)

A friend of mine recently told me that my face doesn't match my personality, so here's where I get to either prove him right or prove him wrong. ;)

Hmmmm...I'm gonna HAVE to get a digital camera for this one...that's all there is to it.

Oh, and I live near Detroit. I'm about ohhh...I dunno... maybe like 1.5 hours from Toledo. I've been to Columbus, it's a bit of drive, though.

Re:Yeah...photo contest sounds good. (1)

bethanie (675210) | more than 10 years ago | (#6850973)

I suppose posting one of those stills of you & me together would be too much of a giveaway, eh?

None of the others I have actually show your face...

There are pictures of events I don't even remember? ;)

Oh, man...my head hurts. Who hit me in the head with the brick again?

Re:Yeah...photo contest sounds good. (1)

bethanie (675210) | more than 10 years ago | (#6851316)

You can play at not remembering all you like (nevermind the photos and videographic evidence and eyewitnesses kicking you out of their journals [and beating you with bricks!!]...)

You may just end up with a little "reminder" in oh, say, about nine months?! ;-)

(Just kidding.)

....Bethanie....

dubiousdave (618128) | more than 10 years ago | (#6852852)

You're bluffing. You never hold still when you're with your men.

Re:Yeah...photo contest sounds good. (1)

bethanie (675210) | more than 10 years ago | (#6852984)

I didn't say *I* was still -- I said the pix were stills.

I do have to admit, though, that Surak had the restraints pretty snug -- didn't leave me much wiggle room, if you know what I mean. ;-)

....Bethanie....

Re:Yeah...photo contest sounds good. (1)

dubiousdave (618128) | more than 10 years ago | (#6853673)

Amateur! If he knew what he was doing, he'd leave enough slack for plenty of wiggling. I do so love watching you wiggle.

Re:Yeah...photo contest sounds good. (1)

Oh, believe me, it's mutual, big boy! ;-)

glh (14273) | more than 10 years ago | (#6851319)

Cool, from Detroit, eh? Which part? I can make it to Windsor in 45 minutes (Tunnel BBQ, best ribs for miles). Southfield is a good hour.

Dublin (north side of cols) is about 2 hours, while Pickerington (southeast side) is about 2 1/2 hrs.

Re:Yeah...photo contest sounds good. (1)

Surak (18578) | more than 10 years ago | (#6851464)

From the very lovely city of Royal Oak [royal-oak.mi.us], actually And Tunnel BBQ *does* have incredibly yummy ribs.

Re:Yeah...photo contest sounds good. (1)

glh (14273) | more than 10 years ago | (#6852933)

I know someone from Royal Oak, graduated in '95. Do you know Emilie Yonkers by any chance?

Re:Yeah...photo contest sounds good. (1)

Surak (18578) | more than 10 years ago | (#6853247)

Nope. Don't know her (? I suppose emilie could be a guy's name, too.)

My parents didn't stay in one place too long when I was growing up so I never really got know anyone.

I'm game. (1)

bethanie (675210) | more than 10 years ago | (#6850926)

Just to prove once and for all. :-)

Yes, please do provide specs (dimensions, resolution, byte size).

....Bethanie....

Re:I'm game. (1)

FortKnox (169099) | more than 10 years ago | (#6851695)

Topless and or nude pics of you will not be posted on the photo contest, just so you know, bethanie....

But they will be kept in my private stash... ;-)

Re:I'm game. (1)

kormoc (122955) | more than 10 years ago | (#6852329)

Well, if she would ask for space for the formentioned pictures, I am sure a few dozen slashdoters would offer :)

and i can offer my site for a mirror as well if need be :)

Re:I'm game. (1)

kormoc (122955) | more than 10 years ago | (#6852374)

Err wait, the mirror part was for the entire contest, not just her pictures. Wrong way to put it ;)

sounds good [!content] (1)

Red Warrior (637634) | more than 10 years ago | (#6851233)

Lameness filter encountered. Post aborted! Reason: You can type more than that for your comment.

I'd definitely be up for it. Depending on who all is going we'd have to figure out where to meet. I'm up for just about anywhere..

As far as the photo contest goes, sounds like fun again. I'll have to send a picture that could throw others off (shouldn't be too hard) from my last one..

Also, I'd be glad to host a mirror if you still need one.

Re:Photo contest and meetup (1)

SamTheButcher (574069) | more than 10 years ago | (#6855919)

I think too many people have seen my pics, unless they haven't been to my site to check 'em out. I could post one of my old longhair pics, but that'd be cheating. ;)

I'll sit this one out. But I'll be guessing!

And no HOF antics this time for me. Unless Cliff says that slashcode has changed. ;)

Hmmm (1)

insanecarbonbasedlif (623558) | more than 10 years ago | (#6851835)

Is there a requirement to how recent the picture needs to be? (and no, I'm not thinking of posting baby or childhood pics, just few years old pics...).
