i take back my sarcstically rude comment enjoy my blonde moment! *sprays lysol*
2007-01-21 [Lothuriel]: LOL...I think we are all having those tonight. No worries.
2007-01-21 [Stray Kitty]: Yeah. I'm terrible with deadlines anyways. I'm a procrastinator
2007-01-21 [Lothuriel]: Yeppers, same here.
2007-01-21 [Stray Kitty]: Yeah, I once did a five month long English project in two weekends. It was scary.
2007-01-21 [Yuriona]: OMG! I had a class that was focused on just one major project and I did it all in the last two weeks of the semester. O_O I was amazed that I passed...
2007-01-21 [Stray Kitty]: Whoa!
2007-01-21 [Pathos]: Well, not really. The plastic dress was actually just plastic wrap. But I decided not to enter it. I felt that it didn't really fit the theme. Maybe another one.
2007-01-21 [Pathos]: So, is it over yet or what?
2007-01-21 [Lothuriel]: We havent' received the offical word yet. I am not sure, exactly. There was a brief conversation about leaving it open for a bit longer. Other than that, I don't want to say for certain.
2007-01-21 [BinaryPhoenix]: It would be cool if it can stay open for a day or two longer, as I'm busy working on my entry. The development is taking abit longer than I expected... ^_^
2007-01-21 [Mercenes]: Yes, I really hope it gets extended!
2007-01-21 [Teufelsweib]: ...I say it should be extended a bit more, since I suspect some lovely entries coming up still! but we'll have to hear that from whoever watches over this contest :)
2007-01-21 [BinaryPhoenix]: Well, I'm going to upload my entries, and if they don't extend the deadline, they can take them off. ^_^
2007-01-21 [Lothuriel]: I think (don't quote me on this) it is extended for one week...just a sec and I'll find out.
2007-01-21 [Papa Don't Preach]: kl
2007-01-21 [Sunrose]: The deadline now is the 27th of January :)
2007-01-21 [Papa Don't Preach]: yay
2007-01-21 [BinaryPhoenix]: Woopee! ^_^
2007-01-21 [Papa Don't Preach]: lol
2007-01-21 [Mercenes]: Yay! thank you!
2007-01-22 [forbidden]: YAY!
2007-01-23 [The Scarlet Pumpernickle]: Sweet! I can still enter! Woots!
2007-01-23 [Teufelsweib]: hurry up then! just a few more days to go! ;)
2007-01-30 [Asrun]: There were so many great entries, i didn't know which to vote for!!
2007-02-03 [Yuriona]: I consider the matter closed and it was I, [Yuriona] wiki owner and member of the guards who removed the offensive and inflammatory comments. If you have a problem with that, I suggest you message me privately and not flame this wiki any further with such childish nonsense. Anyone who disregards this warning will be banned from participating in future Photograph contests. That goes for everyone, including council members.
2007-02-14 [Corazie]: When are the badges to be given out?
2007-02-14 [Lothuriel]: Just as soon as one of the badgers finds the extra time!
2007-02-15 [Corazie]: Ok, thank you =]
2007-02-15 [Teufelsweib]: I'll be doing the badges asap! ;)
2007-03-08 [hollow heart]: when is the next competition ?
2007-03-08 [Teufelsweib]: we don't know yet, but when the next one is here it'll be on the mainstreet! ;)
2007-03-24 [Sunrose]: To those watching this wiki:
We're working on a new contest, but note that it is NOT open to submissions yet :)
2007-03-27 [Sunrose]: It's open now! ;)
2007-03-27 [Kelaria]: Why a marble? I do not have access (without a lot of trouble and possibly having to spend money) to a marble! :/ I suppose I could come up with something, but I'm just wondering why you chose a marble.
2007-03-27 [Ravendust]: I've got an entry done, though I don't know how good it is... ^_^;;
still have to put it up though
and what is meant by marble- do you mean one of those toy things? I don't have any... can't I use a stuffed animal or something? lol...
This is the first photography contest I've entered, and I want to make sure I don't screw anything up...
2007-03-28 [Yuriona]: I would imagine a ball or any sphere shaped object will do. :) Just remember that the proofphoto with the small sphere in it MUST be taken at the SAME TIME as the entry photo. Any and all entries submitted without the proofphoto will be removed.
2007-03-28 [Ravendust]: so the proof photo goes on the same page with the entry?
2007-03-28 [Kelaria]: Hmmm... now I shall go in search of a spherical object! :)
2007-03-28 [Ravendust]: Round spherical object... round spherical object- I'll be damned if I didn't use my only one for my project...
2007-03-28 [Yuriona]: Yes, the proof photo should go directly under the entry.
2007-03-28 [Ravendust]: mmkay, thanks ^_^
2007-03-31 [Gabycat]: such a cool contest. I love the idea.
2007-04-02 [earthkynd]: a marble..?
an actual marble...?
2007-04-02 [Yuriona]: Marble, ball, sphere, globe... anything like that will do. :)
2007-04-02 [Teufelsweib]: knikker =P XD
2007-04-03 [Yuriona]: A marble is good but we'll accept anything spherical if you don't have any marbles. *giggles*
2007-04-03 [Kelaria]: Good news! I have located a spherical object to use in my photos!! ^_^
2007-04-03 [Yuriona]: Yay!! :)
2007-04-03 [Kelaria]: hehe :D Now I have to brainstorm ideas!! :D
2007-04-03 [Atayemi]: Apparently you can't say brainstorm anymore. O_o
It's offensive to people who have schitzophrenia
2007-04-03 [Kelaria]: That is sooo lame.
2007-04-04 [deRevenant]: hi, i's got a question about this contest/does photomanip include splicing two photos together? i wanted to submit a new photo that contains an element from another new photo, but i don't know if that's allowed
2007-04-04 [Sunrose]: Manipulation is allowed, just don't forget to add a spherical object in your proofpictures :)
2007-04-04 [deRevenant]: awesomus! this means my original idea can be accepted (yay!) i do know about the proofphoto, so i've got that covered; just so happens i've got a pile of marbles to choose from, hehe. thank you kindly sunrose! :)
2007-04-05 [Ravendust]: mine's going to take a bit to do considering that I've got to do it in school since my internet's been removed at home -_-
2007-04-05 [iippo]: But if you still have a computer at home, you could do it at home and then take it to the computer at school on a disk or memory stick...? o.O
2007-04-06 [Ravendust]: They're not really saved to my computer- they're in emails. I took the pictures with my cellphone...
2007-05-14 [playslashwrite]: im sooo gonna enter this contest XD just took my first picture, but i couldnt find any marbles (what do i look like, a five year old?:p) so i got little skull beads instead ^^
2007-06-08 [Corazie]: Where can I buy marbles? The only place I can think of is Fenwicks, but I'm too poor to buy anything from there due to outrageous bus prices to/from anywhere.
2007-06-08 [hollow heart]: hmm you live in newcastle.
try the pound shop just along from triple S.
hmmm thats the only place i can thing of.
2008-03-19 [xX-Sarahanne-Xx]: Okay Im pretty STUPID,..
Is there a theme right now?
if so what is the theme?
2008-03-19 [Linderel]: This contest is currently not open, so no, there is no theme. :)
2009-04-20 [Alexi Ice]: Wow. 2008. Anyone still here?
2009-04-20 [FamousPanda]: I had no clue that I was watching this page, but I'm here lol.
2009-04-20 [Alexi Ice]: Well that's one. Lets see how many more we can get before I ask Yuriona to allow me to re-open this.
2009-04-20 [Linderel]: Duh. I don't stop watching official pages unless they're made obsolete.
2009-04-20 [playslashwrite]: also still watching:)
2009-04-20 [moira hawthorne]: the easy way to check how many people are watching is loook on the side banner
Page name: ET Photograph Competition [Exported view] [RSS] Version:
Last author: *Artsie_ladie*
# of watchers: 99 D20: 8
do you really want 99 people to make a useless 'im here' comment that all the rest are gonna get an up date for?
even assuming that a few of those 99 people may no longer be active on ET.... its still alot of 'Im here's
2009-04-20 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: I'm here.
Joking. Not the I'm here part, but i agree with Moira. This is an official elftown page anyway.
2009-04-20 [Yuriona]: Argh... ><
2009-04-20 [Alexi Ice]: Ok your right, sorry about that everyone. I'm kinda new to running official contest...agai
2009-04-24 [Chimes]: The picture has to be set in the past.
Think of dinosaurs, the western frontier, the old contry, the future, apocalypses, exc.
The underlined bits contradict each other. You are saying it has to be set in the past then that you can use the future. :P May I suggest that you instead say that it should be 'set' in a different time than our own?
Also 'exc' should be 'etc'.
2009-04-25 [Alexi Ice]: I made a mock page since I have quite a few errors, thank you guys though for taking the time to help me!!!
Chimes - O.o wow! That does sound extremely silly.
2009-04-25 [Alexi Ice]: So let's see some entries!
2009-04-25 [Hedda]: I can't find the submission page. Am I blind, or have you forgotten it?
2009-04-25 [Alexi Ice]: Forgotten. Give me a sec ^^
2009-04-25 [Alexi Ice]: That helps, eh? lol.
2009-04-26 [Chimes]: Hehehe. Just a bit.
I fixed a little broken bit of html, by the way... :P
2009-04-26 [playslashwrite]: ooh new contest! fun! i hope i have some time for this, but it doesnt seem to be too hard ^^
2009-05-02 [Alexi Ice]: Nope, it is fairly easy and comes with a lot of creative liscence
2009-05-04 [The Boondock Saints]: this is my first time participating in a contest... im so excited
2009-05-04 [Alexi Ice]: Is it? Well good luck! ^^
2009-05-04 [The Boondock Saints]: yup first time... i wasnt sure if i can actually do a good job. see the only prob is that the only cam i have is my cell phone. ill have to see if a buddy of mine will let me use theirs. lol.
2009-05-06 [Ravenclaw]: Crapsticks... I'd love to join but I can't provide a proof image because I took the photo I prefer to use several years ago. Other than that it still falls under the proper criteria. It's in my house if anyone would like to offer me advice.
2009-05-06 [Chimes]: If you knew the people in it, you could get them to dress up for you again holding a bowl... then it would still count, I think but Akane is in charge so in the end it would be her decision as to whether to allow it. :P Otherwise you could just take a new photo.
2009-05-06 [Teufelsweib]: and at the same place with the same cannon, that is :P
2009-05-06 [Alexi Ice]: [The Boondock Saints] - I can take good quality photos with my camera phone, it isn't easy and takes a lot of patients but it is possible ^^ Just give it a shot!
[Ravenclaw] - Let me go take a look at it...
2009-05-06 [Alexi Ice]: That is a very amazing picture. Is there no way to get them all back together for one or two camera shots?
2009-05-06 [Ravenclaw]: No, our commanding officer suffered a brain anurism (sp?) and a stroke shortly after the picture was taken. He's the one with the cannon and is in too pore health to participate in long distance reenactments.
I wish I could have found the one with the two gentelmen dressed as President Lincoln and General Stewart. Except for the powerlines in the background it was freakin awesome. They where standing on the battlefield shaking hands when I happened to walk by *snap*. I see the gentelmen dressed as Lincon every once in a while. He dresses up for Lincoln's birthday and visits all the local businesses in town during the Presidents Day sales. He's a tad excentric but in a loveable home grown kinda way.
But if I'm unable to participate that's cool, at least I got some good feedback for it!
2009-05-06 [Yuriona]: Dang... reenactments are so cool! I have photos of my brother and uncle in their WWII Nazi uniforms but I didn't take any of the pictures. ;_;
I would imagine if you could convince the gentleman to pose for another photo with you (and a bowl lol) that could be might be enough of a proof photo for the contest. It is an amazing photo that's for sure. *nods*
2009-05-06 [Alexi Ice]: How about this, Raven. Get your father to dress up again (since he is in the picture) and have him hold a bowl, and I will accept it. That way you can add the origional photo and I still have proof that it was your picture, will that work?
2009-05-07 [Ravenclaw]: SWEET! He can't fit into that same uniform anymore but I'll see what I can do.
Update: Called Dad, he dosen't have the exact uniform but he has something close. He's gained a size or two since the last reenactment but he's eager to help! He's so cool!
2009-05-07 [Alexi Ice]: As long as he looks the same, it's proof enough for me.
2009-05-07 [Ravenclaw]: Gratzi!
2009-05-07 [Iske]: cooooooool
2009-05-25 [K.N.L.]: I don't understand what the "bowl" thingy...
2009-05-25 [Teufelsweib]: it's a proof photo, so we can see that you made that photo instead of someone else. so you make another picture with the same scenery only you include a bowl in that picture. simple as that
2009-05-25 [Alexi Ice]: Thanks for explaining that one. ^^ (A bowl was the only thing I had at my disposal at the time, also something that most everyone has in their home)
2009-05-25 [Teufelsweib]: welcome :P though I guess if you read the rules above carefully enough they should be pretty plain..
2009-05-25 [Alexi Ice]: Eh, I don't ever really mind explaining. Lol.
2009-05-25 [K.N.L.]: oh okay... thanxies lol
2009-05-25 [Alexi Ice]: No worries! *Eventually I will get a proof photo uploaded that people can actually see...>>
2009-05-25 [K.N.L.]: lol
2009-06-26 [Nocternity S.]: woooo! im def gonna enter!
2009-06-26 [Alexi Ice]: Awesome! I can't wait!
2009-08-13 [Byne]: I'd love to enter this competition, but there isn't any way in hell that I can get a proof photo for the shot I want to submit to this ocntest.... As I took the photo last year at a indian village...Whic
2009-08-14 [Alexi Ice]: I seem to have run into that probelm with a few of my entrants. I'm sorry.
2009-08-14 [Byne]: Yeaaaah. All it means is that anyone who wants to enter the contest has to take a photo specifically for it instead of already using one of their existing images. Which really sucks for photographers like me who don't set up photo shoots. And I'm sorry, but there ain't no way in hell that I'm going to carry a bowl around with me everywhere.
2009-08-14 [Alexi Ice]: HAHAHA. Well I picked it because it can be fairly small and almost everyone has on in their household
2009-08-14 [Byne]: Yeaaaaaah. I only suggest next time you find a different method of verification. |D Cuz I'd love to enter this contest. I just ain't a photoshoot photographer. I'm SPONTANEOUS. O:
2009-08-14 [Alexi Ice]: Hahaha. Well official contests go as they go. Look at it this way, having to make a photo to which you had no preconception of the theme IS spontanuous.
2009-08-14 [Byne]: ...not really, cuz once you know the theme you generally will set something up to fit that theme.... get me drift?
2009-08-14 [Alexi Ice]: I understand. Point taken, but the contest will be what it is. Sorry it isn't what you want it to be.
2009-08-14 [Chimes]: Byne, the bowl is necessary to prove that the image is actually yours. It ensures that you're not stealing someone elses photography and most, if not all, official photography contests require you to provide a proof photo.
Also, in the rules it states that the picture must be new anyway.
2009-08-16 [Byne]: And I concede. |D Hopefully I'll be able to participate at a later time.
2009-08-27 [Nioniel]: this is still open? I thought it had closed...
2009-08-27 [Alexi Ice]: Not quite! Get to submitting!
2009-08-27 [Nioniel]: Will do! (or at least will be working on it in the next few days)
2009-08-27 [Alexi Ice]: I can't wait to see!
2009-08-28 [Nioniel]: :)
2009-10-05 [hanhepi]: you missed a "open" sign. (towards the bottom)
2009-10-06 [Alexi Ice]: Thanks ^^
2009-10-06 [hanhepi]: no problem. :)
2010-07-15 [Akayume]: This might sound annoying, buttt... When's the next contest? Next year? :O
2010-07-15 [Linderel]: When we come up with a theme and get someone to mod the competition. :3
2010-07-15 [Akayume]: I have a plethora of ideas if you need any. >:D I love photography, and it's really the only thing I'm good at, so I love for these challenges. XP
2010-07-15 [Linderel]: Well, you're always free to suggest :D
2010-07-15 [Akayume]: Oke! (: I'll compile some ideas together so It's not like, "OH! and this! OH! and this!" because for some reason people find that annoying. X3
2010-07-15 [Nioniel]: I can help mod, if need be.
2010-07-15 [Nioniel]: :)
2010-07-15 [Alexi Ice]: Yeah, I can't do any modding right now, either, seeing as I'm on hiatus. But I would love for someone to keep this lovely contest rolling.
2011-05-13 [kians mummy]: whens the next copetition
2011-05-13 [Linderel]: Soon enough, methinks. We have been discussing it recently. :)
2011-05-13 [kians mummy]: cool, try a future theme
2011-05-13 [Akayume]: We already have a theme, actually. But thanks for the suggestion! :D
2011-05-19 [Kelaria]: Are there not proof photos this time? What's the rule on when the photo was taken? Does it have to be taken specifically for this contest, or can we use older photos (provided they haven't been used for another contest)?
I'm really excited for another ET photo contest!! :D
2011-05-19 [Akayume]: See [SilverFire], we should have left the part in about not having it anymore. :P
Nope! No proof photo, and I don't care when you took it as long as YOU took it and it fits the theme. (: So, go crazy! XP
2011-05-19 [Kelaria]: Awesome!! :D
2011-05-19 [Akayume]: Yes! So get to submitting! :P
2011-05-20 [Amanda Bastian]: photo competitions? how cool! :D
2011-05-20 [Akayume]: Yes. :D
2011-05-23 [Amanda Bastian]: hehe ^_^
Is colour a different form of color or does it mean something else
2011-05-23 [kians mummy]: it means the same thing but in english
2011-05-23 [Amanda Bastian]: oh ok :)
I got some ideas then ^^
2011-05-23 [kians mummy]: good, hope you do well :)
2011-05-23 [Akayume]: *British English
People from Britain and America speak English, but there is variation in certain words, for example. (: This site's "official" languauge (what everything is written in) is British English. :D Which is why it is "colour" as opposed to "color".
2011-05-23 [Linderel]: And Canada, and Australia, and New Zealand... :P </nitpick>
2011-05-23 [Akayume]: Yes, but I think that's assumed. :P I think it's funny how we've all had ties to Britain, but America was like, "I haz great idea gais les talk diffrnt". XP
2011-05-23 [Linderel]: I think it has to do with your relatively early revolt. After you said kthxbye to Mother England, you went on a different language development path. :3
2011-05-23 [Akayume]: This is true. America is also a huuuuuge expanse of land, so people went out West and a whole new subculture developed there. Up here where I live, all the Norwegians took over. :P (Go lefsa!) We're kinda cute, how we talk. Saying things like, "Don't cha know" and "ofta". XP
2011-05-23 [Linderel]: What does "ofta" even meeeeeean?
2011-05-23 [Akayume]: It's like "Oi vey" or "cripes". But... More polite? :P All the old people say it here. And me.
2011-05-23 [hanhepi]: i think the spelling differences happened about the time we developed the "lazy" reputation. "wait, i can't hear a u in color, i say we drop it." "wait, we'll still keep the h in herb though, right?" "of course."
2011-05-25 [Lothuriel]: I think "ofta" might me "off to"...maybe. That is what it means in my neck of hick town.
2011-05-25 [Akayume]: No. XP Not here. Other people spell it "Oofda", but that looks silly. >.>"
2011-05-25 [Lothuriel]: LOL I see I see.
2011-05-31 [Mystin]: No photo manips :-( I guess I'll have to find a regular picture.
2011-08-20 [Blaithin]: When it says no manipulation does that including tweaking contrast and saturation?
2011-08-20 [Akayume]: That would be acceptable. (:
2011-08-20 [Blaithin]: Right on. I'll get to clicking the shutter then. Thanks :D
2011-08-22 [Cillamoon]: Deadline is coming up fast guys, thanks to all that have submitted already, and a kind reminder to those that still wish to enter. :)
2011-08-31 [Akayume]: The contest is now closed! Thanks to all who entered!
2011-08-31 [Alexi Ice]: Yay!!
2011-09-21 [kians mummy]: Is there ever going to be a badge for this? where is the voting, for it? how come its been 20 days without any badging taking place?
2011-09-21 [SilverFire]: Because first we were waiting for the current MS poll to not be tied, then ET crashed. Remember that?
2011-09-22 [kians mummy]: Lol, sorry, I have been away, please can you pm me on whats been going on through ET, I have some questions to ask
2011-09-25 [Lord Josmar]: Yay for photography overload!
2011-10-03 [kians mummy]: So whats happening with the people who submitted but did not get to the mainstreet?
2011-10-03 [SilverFire]: Nothing? If you're asking about badges, they'll still be badged along with everyone else once the winner is announced.
2011-10-03 [kians mummy]: I wasn't asking about badges, I was just saying, You still think I'm on here for the badges don't you? I don't believe it.
2011-10-03 [SilverFire]: There's no need to be rude; I was just trying to make sure I gave a comprehensive answer.
2011-10-03 [Lord Josmar]: *sigh*
2011-10-03 [Blaithin]: I didn't know being Vice Mayor was a profession in the first place. How can she be unprofessional :p
2011-10-04 [Alexi Ice]: Magic
2011-10-04 [Paul Doyle]: Sammie, neither of my pics made it. Yet I do not hold a grudge. First of all, I am a novice photographer, so novice I didn't bother removing the date data from my photos. Also, I have an old digicam and I don't have any Photoshop skills (I'd rather not retouch photos to begin with, but that's just me).
Be grateful and happy for all of these fine photos and their photographers, whether they made the front page or not.
In my example, the evening the pictures were taken will be etched into my memory for far longer than the photos themselves. Why? Because seeing a wonderfully lit, strangely shaped cloud in person (the cumulus mammatus forming behind dying thunderstorms, in my pictures' cases) is far more breathtaking than the photos themselves. Also, I was hanging outside with my wife and son on a pleasant summer evening (even doing a Youtube book update, where you can plainly see the strangely shaped clouds in the background) and I will cherish that kind of simple, fun and innocent memory forever. :)
2011-10-05 [kians mummy]: I do not hold a grudge, I apologize about my rudeness, but I am sick of people thinking I'm some badge hunter when I'm not, I just ask questions, its rude to assume things about someone.
2011-10-05 [SilverFire]: You mean like you assumed I thought you were still badge-hunting? ;) Assuming things about other people is how most of us get by every day (e.g., I assume that person behind me is also going to walk through the same door I just did, so I hold it open for them). Most assumptions are harmless. I think the problem with assumptions comes when you start assuming things about other people's motives. The world would be a better place if we all gave the benefit of the doubt more often. :)
2011-10-05 [kians mummy]: You automatically thought I ment badges, forget it, not arguing
2011-10-05 [SilverFire]: No, I didn't. That's why I started the sentence with "If you're asking about badges..." because I didn't assume I knew specifically what you were asking about, so I just provided info which might be relevant. Apology accepted, though. ;)
2011-10-05 [Lord Josmar]: Im a badge farmer...I love badges. Does that make me a bad person? No. It does not.
2011-10-06 [Blaithin]: Actually it does. Really you're a terrible, horrible person. We just don't tell you it to your face because you're so bad :o
2011-10-06 [Lord Josmar]: That...that hurt...Hurt deep.
2011-11-01 [Lord Josmar]: Congrats! Good photo.
2011-11-02 [kians mummy]: How come this badge has not been given out as of yet??
