2011-05-11 [SilverFire]: I might possibly beg an extension of a few days on this one. I have my cello here with me, but the sax, piano and violin are at my parents' house, and I won't be visiting them 'till the very end of June/start of July
2011-05-11 [Akayume]: That's not a problem. (: I'm on my cell now but when I hop on my computer I'll extend the deadline. :D I just want entries! :(
2011-05-22 [Ihsahn]: You has an entry.
2011-05-23 [Akayume]: :D Huzzah!
2011-06-01 [Mortified Penguin]: Someone comment here like a week before the deadline, so I don't forget.
2011-06-01 [Akayume]: All right. I'll probably be extending the deadline anyway. (: Especially since I'll away in July. o.o (I might stop by to visit, but not too often).
2011-06-02 [Akayume]: Deadline has been extended! You now have until August 27 to submit. (:
2011-06-02 [Mortified Penguin]: Even so, I'll still need a reminder.
2011-06-25 [Nioniel]: *poke* *reminds Mort*
2011-06-26 [Mortified Penguin]: *hits the snooze button*
2011-08-10 [Akayume]: Enter people! :D
2011-08-11 [Mortified Penguin]: NEVER!!
2011-08-11 [Akayume]: Please? (:
2011-08-27 [Kyrinn]: darn it. I could have entered this thing. :C
2011-08-27 [Mortified Penguin]: What, this is over already? I had a bunch more instruments I was gonna add...
2011-08-27 [Kyrinn]: Ive been so busy and today I finally got to wander around a bit instead of rushing in, checking messages, and running back out. :C Oh well..
2011-09-21 [Alexi Ice]: Crap. I should have submitted to this!
2011-09-21 [Mortified Penguin]: We could always just extend the deadline. Especially as I'm kinda sorta the only person that is in this contest right now...
2011-09-22 [Akayume]: Well, voting has already gone up. :/
2011-09-22 [Mortified Penguin]: It's just three voters though and I'm sure none of them/us would mind in the slightest. Plus, extending the deadline would get a lot more reference pictures than just closing the contest now and letting people submit their instrument pictures on their own time. People tend to never get around to submitting stuff if there isn't a deadline and the thrill of a poll afterward.
2011-09-23 [Akayume]: Which is why so many people entered this time? :P
2011-09-23 [Mortified Penguin]: They clearly just forgot. I mean, [Kyrinn] and [Alexi Ice] seem somewhat interested in submitting. And honestly, who would be offended by this being reopened and the deadline being extended? Me? [Ihsahn]? No offensive, but it's doubtful.
2011-09-23 [Nioniel]: I think the question here is whether [Kyrinn] and [Alexi Ice] would actually submit to this session if it were reopened/exten
2011-09-23 [Mortified Penguin]: What's the worst that could happen if you did though? Nobody else submitting anything? Would that really be so bad that you wouldn't even want to try to extend the deadline? We're not running a serious business here, there's no need to be super strict about things like this.
2011-09-23 [SilverFire]: I was planning to submit to it, but never got round to it. So... if it's opened again, I may submit. But then again, the incentive of a deadline clearly didn't work for me last time. XP Though for me, it's more about having someone help with taking the photos (so I could actually get shots of the instruments being played, rather than just sitting there).
Of course if we re-open it you can make a news item about it which might bring it to the attention of some people who missed it last time.
2011-09-23 [Nioniel]: I'm gone until tomorrow night. If one of the Photo Bosses wants to do that while I'm gone, they're more than welcome to. Otherwise, I'll get to it when I come back.
2011-09-23 [Kyrinn]: Ill enter if it opens back up. Ive been so busy lately that my home office finally slowed a bit and I discovered this contest. Since my son and I are musicians Ive got a few instruments laying around that would love some attention.
2011-09-23 [Alexi Ice]: I just overlooked this contest completly! I would enter for sure!
2011-10-05 [Tynuka-Rhytishy]: Me too. When I get the chance I need to post my flute and guitar.
2011-10-06 [Lothuriel]: I need to upload a ton. I have a violin, a piano, a flute, a piccolo, a guitar, a bass, a triangle and an alto saxophone. Yes, my oldest is quite a music nut, lol
2011-10-06 [Alexi Ice]: Are they opening it back up then?
2011-10-06 [Nioniel]: Yeah, sorry, I got distracted by other stuff. Opening it up now.
2011-10-06 [Nioniel]: *done*
2011-10-06 [Alexi Ice]: Sweeeettt!
2011-10-06 [Kyrinn]: Nice.. Gonna have to get all the instruments together now!
2011-10-06 [Tynuka-Rhytishy]: WOOOHOOOO!!! Now I gotta sneak my flute out of my dads house.
2011-10-06 [Kyrinn]: O_O You have to sneak it out? That doesnt sound too good..
2011-10-06 [Tynuka-Rhytishy]: It's not as extreme as it sounds. xD I'm so glad they opened this back up for all of us to submit!
2011-10-06 [Kyrinn]: Im glad too. I just need a little bit of time to get mine in the same room. XD
2011-10-06 [Alexi Ice]: Sweet!
2011-10-07 [Yuriona]: Muahahahaa.... sneaky entry! GO ME! XD More than just guitars in mine too.
Man... I wish [Acerbus] would replace his bass already so I could include it. Have to wait until we go to my mom in-law's again to get a photo of my real piano though. lol I can actually play all of the instruments in my photos except the guitar though I guess the fact I know 4 chords on it means I can play it... just not very well.
2011-10-10 [Kyrinn]: Dammit, my camera isnt speaking to my computer. *screams* I tried using my camera on my phone but the images are crap, so just letting you know Im working on it, but again technology is my enemy. ARRGH
2011-10-13 [July 47]: can it be instruments that i play or have?
2011-10-13 [Nioniel]: Both. :)
2011-10-13 [Kyrinn]: can I post pics of them being held or played?
2011-10-13 [Akayume]: Both!
2011-10-13 [Kyrinn]: Sweet! Ive some to upload today and will have my family help me with some hands on pictures, so to speak. XD
2011-11-03 [iippo]: Darn, completely forgot about this for a long while, after I had already uploaded the pictures x) Well, at least I didn't miss the deadline.
2011-11-03 [Kyrinn]: Ive got stuff to upload, it just takes time I dont have much of. lol
2011-11-04 [Akayume]: You have lotsa time before the deadline! Enter awaaaaay~
2011-11-04 [Kyrinn]: Cool. :D
2011-11-10 [Tynuka-Rhytishy]: Did the deadline change? I thought it was the end of November?
2011-11-10 [Alexi Ice]: Yeah me too?
2011-11-10 [Nioniel]: No, it's still open until the end of November. Cilla must have thought it closed earlier. Fixed.
2011-11-10 [Alexi Ice]: Yay!! ^^
2011-11-10 [Cillamoon]: Sorry guys, I don't know what planet I was on. I swore it had said October X_X
2011-11-10 [Mortified Penguin]: It did, but it was changed because of a lack of entries.
2011-11-11 [Tynuka-Rhytishy]: Okay. I was like -serious pout- when I saw the polls. lol Thanks!
2011-11-28 [Nioniel]: This is closing soon, so if anyone else wants to submit, please do so! :3
2011-11-29 [Kyrinn]: ARGH Im trying.. my load time sucks atm.. D:
2011-11-29 [Nioniel]: :(
2011-11-29 [Kyrinn]: ACtually, Im almost done.. But for some reason the load time is crawling on my end! Ill keep trying, I have one more photo shoot to get the rest of what I need tomorrow and Ill upload the rest during the day. *fingers crossed*
2011-11-29 [Nioniel]: Kyrinn and the Race Against Time! :3
2011-11-29 [Yuriona]: You need a garbage powered Dolorian! XD
2011-11-29 [Kyrinn]: WOOHOOO!! lol If I dont finish up by tomorrow night, Im submitting what I have. Having a new camera is like having a new kitten in the house: Its awesome but you cant figure it out! XD
2011-11-30 [Kyrinn]: Ah made it! *boogies*
2011-11-30 [Nioniel]: W007! :D
2011-12-05 [Nioniel]: Time to vote!
2011-12-09 [Skydancer]: While I think they are all quite grand, the one has to take it on sheer number of references with all the multiple angles and such.
