2005-12-03 [syagre]: Take courage for the tedious job
2005-12-03 [Yuriona]: I am nearly halfway finished thank you. Please do not begin pestering me as to when I will finish distributing them though. Impatience with such things tends to irritate me and I am not a pleasant person when irritated by numerous, repetitive questions.
2005-12-03 [Fizban]: Either way, thank you for your efforts...
2005-12-04 [iippo]: Rawr *points Yuri with a stick through her cage to irritate her*
2005-12-04 [Yuriona]: Hey! That's not nice! *gnaws on stick*
2005-12-04 [iippo]: Heehee.
2005-12-05 [Tyrana]: "No. I figured I'd deliver them to people that didn't enter the contest. *twitches*" XD
2005-12-05 [Yuriona]: *grins* Yeah, sorry about that. Ridiculous remarks tend to incur my wrath. Or at least my sarcasm. ;)
2005-12-17 [..Andrew..]: aye ya mutha!!!
2005-12-27 [-tsukasa-]: Is it allowed to have 2 pictures in one image
2005-12-28 [Yuriona]: For this contest yes as photomanipulat
2005-12-29 [raza]: If a photomanipulat
2005-12-29 [Yuriona]: In this round of the competition, all entries are considered creative artworks be it straight photography or photomanipulat
2005-12-29 [raza]: Ok thank you i think i understood...
2006-01-01 [-tsukasa-]: contest is not closed yet :P
2006-01-01 [Sunrose]: Fixed now :)
2006-01-01 [Yuriona]: Thank you Sunrose. ^_^
2006-01-01 [-tsukasa-]: Can't wait till the winners are announced
2006-01-04 [lady nytmare]: can't wait till new comp starts. :) Happy 2006 everyone ^^
2006-01-04 [-tsukasa-]: thanx happy new year to you to
2006-01-12 [-tsukasa-]: Gues it's difficult to decide the winners :P
2006-01-12 [Yuriona]: Please be advised that badges for this contest will not be awarded until the winners have been announced. Judging is under way and I hope to have winners posted by the end of the week. Please be patient and be aware that all photograph badges currently displayed in members' houses were awarded for participation in the two previous compeitions. Thank you.
2006-01-12 [-tsukasa-]: I know. Sorry to bother you, Just think it's funny that some people are getting very anxious. I think you guys should take as much time as you need. It's still a contest.
2006-01-13 [-tsukasa-]: To bad mine is selected :P But congrats to the ones that are, realy like them and may the best win.
2006-01-15 [Bobolama]: One of the contest rule is .. MORE CREATIVITY this time. But the photo's the where selected are not verry creative if ..you ask me ..
2006-01-16 [Legato_Lives]: Can i vote
2006-01-16 [Legato_Lives]: its over noooooooooooo lol well next time then i will win next time :)
2006-01-17 [duckofdoom]: how do I vote?
2006-01-17 [-tsukasa-]: Go to mainstreet and look at the poll
2006-02-06 [Kirè]: Ohhhh i had some good pictures please start it up again please
2006-02-06 [Ocean Soul]: This photography contest is over, which means the same theme will not be brought up again. But I suppose there will be a new photography contest in a while, so just check the Calendar and Mainstreet notes every now and then :)
2006-02-12 [lady nytmare]: *mwah!* to you all! :) X
2006-02-12 [Yuriona]: O_o
2006-02-17 [lady nytmare]: sorry, I'm just happy :)
2006-02-17 [BinaryPhoenix]: Good 4 you! =)
2006-02-17 [BinaryPhoenix]: I cannot wait for the next Photograph competition!!! =)
2006-02-17 [Noexistantanymo]: Me neither (=
2006-02-17 [Stand Fast]: Its going to be actually my first time participating, I hope I don't miss this one :(
2006-02-17 [iippo]: Actually there isn't one, at least not now. >_>
2006-02-17 [Stand Fast]: I know, I am waiting for the enxt one to start.... I missed "Tis the season" and I had a lot of good snowtime pictures.
2006-04-26 [lady nytmare]: Takes an awful long time for new comp...
2006-04-26 [Sunrose]: You could instead just ask nicely when the next contest is planned. We are volunteers, not slaves. Aside from the fact we've organised a lot of other types of contests (currently running 2) and the last photograph contest was only last February.
2006-04-26 [Kelaria]: I have an idea for the next comp :D what about cloud pictures? ^_^ I have some good ones that I took recently!! hehe... and they're so beautiful... and there's so many types of clouds! :)
2006-04-26 [Sunrose]: But would it still be fun if 50-100 entrants submitted pictures of clouds? Maybe it would start to look alike :/ *ponders*
2006-04-26 [Ocean Soul]: Maybe rather a sky-theme than only clouds. But it would still be pretty much the same in most entries and also it's something even my rabbits'd be able to take a photo of :P
2006-04-26 [Kelaria]: We could narrow it down :D and yes, sky theme would be better ^^
2006-04-26 [Sunrose]: How? :p
2006-04-26 [Kelaria]: I dunno! It was ocean's idea XD
2006-04-26 [Sunrose]: You mentioned narrowing it down :P
2006-04-26 [Kelaria]: oh... I dont know.... lol! it was just a suggestion, :P
2006-04-26 [Ocean Soul]: Mh I actually wouldn't like that theme really, I mean there's a lot of beautiful things you could come up with, but people might also steal other people's photos easily. I'd go for a more specific and more fantasy or sci-fi related theme..
2006-04-26 [Kelaria]: Yeah... :/
2006-04-27 [Yuriona]: Sci-fi huh? Maybe we should have a UFO photo capture contest. Hmmmm...
2006-04-27 [Kelaria]: ooooo! hmmm... interesting :D
2006-04-27 [Charybdis]: I wonder how many Frisbee action shots there would be... :P
2006-04-27 [Kelaria]: A lot probably XD
2006-04-27 [Yuriona]: *grins* I think I may have to allow photo manips for this one since I think it'll be the last photo contest I run. Time to hand the reins over to someone else I believe.
2006-04-27 [Kelaria]: Yay! :D ...exept that I cant manipulate photos XD tried... I suck :P
2006-04-27 [lady nytmare]: ooooh! pick me pick me! :p does my brother falling off the roof (action shot) count as a ufo?
2006-04-27 [Ocean Soul]: holding an ufo contest is actually a cute idea :D
2006-04-27 [Yuriona]: I'll have to get off my butt then and get it up and running then. ^^ Photomanips, fake ufo photos and really creepy, who-knows-what
2006-04-27 [Kelaria]: Yay! Fun!! ^_^
2006-04-27 [Keii]: Ooohh sounds good ^^
2006-04-27 [Fizban]: One of the most popularly accepted photos from the 1960's or so that was convincing people of evidence of UFO's was really simply someone throwing a hubcap through the air from there car, and taking pictures of it...against the sky, without trees to add insight to distance, it looked like a real UFO picture...lol!
2006-04-28 [lady nytmare]: *goes to find hubcap*
2006-04-28 [Fizban]: I know lol!! I was like...well, how else shoudl I figure out how to do that?...but too bad!! thats my method!! I am entering one of those lol!
2006-05-15 [moira hawthorne]: oooooooooooooo
2006-05-15 [Elmiira]: yattaa.. I have an idea.. :)
2006-05-18 [Shadowlight]: Ye missin' a short cut 2 page 2 in here...
2006-05-18 [Yuriona]: Fixed. :)
2006-05-18 [Shadowlight]: Ur quick! Lol
2006-05-18 [Yuriona]: Sometimes. ^^
2006-05-24 [BlackDragon]: I have a question about badges.. Let's say that I have participated in, well.. a lot of photographing competitions but never won. Will my badge still be 'boring' green? or will it get a bit of colour? =p
2006-05-24 [Kelaria]: Check out my badge for your answer :D
2006-05-24 [BlackDragon]: That is why I'm asking.. hehe.. Stll, will the badge at some point get.. more coloured than that? =P
2006-05-24 [Kelaria]: Eventually :P
2006-05-24 [BlackDragon]: oh, okay, now I understand the badge colouring system. Thank you =)
2006-05-24 [Kelaria]: sure thing :D
2006-06-12 [Seja-a]: Can anyone help me upload my picture here, I haven't ever entered in these competitions because I never knew how to enter >< (I feel like a total idiot)
2006-06-12 [Yuriona]: You just upload the photo you would like to enter to your house then link it in the page where the photos are to be displayed: Paranormal photos, page 3. Or you could speak to [Sunrose] about getting privs so you can upload directly to the wiki. If you need any more help just let me know. :)
2006-07-01 [earthkynd]: hellooooo?? this contest is supposed to be closed.. vote?
2006-07-01 [spincrus]: There are just so many entries o_O But the thing is, ET will be down for two days and such, so there won't be any activity going on. See the decreased amount of activity? That should give you a hint ;)
2006-07-01 [PredatorX]: Yeah... the place has been like deserted for a few dats now 0.o
2006-07-01 [skittels]: hmm so when will we get the final results of this contest?
2006-07-01 [spincrus]: More like two days I've noticed. Or maybe three. I don't know why but everyone seems to have gone on vacation at the very same time :D Including me :) I'm writing this from my old laptop as I"m watching the world cup games :)
2006-07-01 [PredatorX]: With this many entries? Oh, I'd say sometime in August... 2007 :p
2006-07-01 [skittels]: haha ok got it ^^ ah well then I have to wait three more days :) I got enough to do so I won't be bored (got my new poi ^^)
2006-07-01 [spincrus]: It first has to be voted. I think the voting would start sometime early next week, and it'll be voted for a whole week or so on the mainstreet (after the amount of entries have been reduced to like 15 or so).
2006-07-01 [skittels]: ohh how will you guys reduce the entries then? just cut out some random photo's? or only the photo's that are the least...
2006-07-01 [PredatorX]: "Spinc... too much Corellian ale? lol, have you seen how many pics there are here? No way will the voting start next week! They have to 'select' (they, as in zee judges) about 5 entires to put on Mainstreet... as in, what they consider to be, the best 5 entries of the hundred or so posted here. And only then will the voting start."
2006-07-01 [iippo]: This contest's closing date is the 30th of June, that was yesterday, not three days ago.
2006-07-01 [skittels]: ahh ok what do you guys think of my pic ^^ guess I won't make a chance hehe do I =P
2006-07-01 [iippo]: There will be voting amongst the Council and Assembly to select the 10 or so entries that make it to the mainstreet poll. So yes, voting will start next week, just not in the public yet. :P
2006-07-01 [PredatorX]: "Skittles... I was tempted to check your pic... but I disencline to browse through all those 4 pages again... I'm just too tired for that... give us a link, will ya?"
2006-07-01 [skittels]: page 4 photo 91.... to make it a bit easy for the lazy guy :P
2006-07-01 [PredatorX]: "It's over bloody thirty here and I'm not used to this sodding weather! I want my freezing cold back, damnit! And, skit... I only wish the pic was bigger, but those wings are just so... damn! I mean, makes you wonder... how'd those get there?"
2006-07-01 [iippo]: Would you mind taking the chatting to a smaller wiki, where there won't be 72 people getting 5 pages of comments when they log in?
2006-07-01 [skittels]: hmm and where would you suggest we do that?
2006-07-01 [spincrus]: True true, you're right :)
2006-07-01 [skittels]: hmm ok where shall we go then guys:P
2006-07-03 [iippo]: Solving it or causing it? ;)
2006-07-03 [lady nytmare]: Definitely causing it :p
2006-07-30 [theedoekje]: when will the next photograph competion be held?
2006-07-30 [Charybdis]: When it's time for one to be held ;) ET is not a paying job; everyone on the crew is a volunteer, and there will be another contest when someone has time to run it.
2006-07-30 [Noexistantanymo]: "ET is not a paying job" Is there room for a bribe? =)
2006-07-30 [theedoekje]: i hope there is one soon. i want to participate in one.
2006-07-30 [shotokan_gal]: Well as the last one only just finished, and the winners haven't yet been announced for it, I don't think another is likely all that soon.
2006-07-30 [moira hawthorne]: the present contest is being voted on on mainstreet.. go and cast your votes!
2006-08-10 [earthkynd]: and now it's gone.
is the voting over?
2006-08-10 [Yuriona]: Don't worry... winners will be announced soon. ;)
2006-08-22 [skittels]: question: do you get some sort of badge when you have participated? and if so can you just take it yourself and put it on your site or do they send one to us.... (yes this was my first competition so I have got no clue about this)
2006-08-22 [iippo]: Yes you get a badge, the guards will give one to you, so just wait for it :)
2006-08-22 [skittels]: *giggles* ok thnx
2006-08-28 [Nocternity S.]: When are we going to open the contest again?
2006-08-28 [lady nytmare]: Hells bells! When did everyone get so impatient!? It's no use hanging around on the page. Go find some other competitions etc to occupy your time, and watch this page for changes. Nagging is annoying.
2006-11-28 [Sahraminkukka]: Twen photograps? ;) Just reporing a typo
2006-11-28 [Linderel]: Fixed. ^_^
2006-11-28 [moira hawthorne]: oooooooooooooo
2006-11-28 [Keii]: Looks good :)
2006-11-28 [Thistlewood]: And me with a broken camera!
2006-11-30 [Stray Kitty]: How do you join the forum? I couldn't find anything on the forun page?
2006-11-30 [Stray Kitty]: But how do you become a member of that forum?
2006-11-30 [moira hawthorne]: click on the forum link, and write something
2006-11-30 [Stray Kitty]: Oh okay. Thank you.
2006-11-30 [dayah]: um...can I ask why you decided to make people join the forum just to enter and look at the entries? just curious.
2006-11-30 [Ocean Soul]: Because it's sad that the forums don't receive the attention they should receive; they're a whole new platforum yet to discover for most Elftowners. Also, if everyone joining the contest is having an eye on the forums, changes and other news can be exchanged more quickly and discussed easily :)
2006-11-30 [moira hawthorne]: b/c the forums are a pain in the @$$
2006-11-30 [dayah]: ah okay...sigh...
2006-11-30 [Ocean Soul]: The forums are not a "pain in the ass" :/ You'll need some time to figure out how it works, but that's the thing with everything new.
2006-11-30 [Yuriona]: Plus if you're having difficulty learning how to use the forums, there are plenty of help on cnetg8 and the easy forum guide. There is also <forum:Elftown, newbie questions> where you can ask about anything pertaining to the forums. If you're still having trouble then ask any of the Elftown council or Assembly members and they will be glad to help you.
2006-11-30 [dayah]: oh not a factor of it being hard to understand...d
2006-11-30 [Yuriona]: To join the contest, you join the forum. To join the forum you click the link. Once you've joined the forum, you can view the page. You are not obligated to participate on the forum even though it may be encouraged. It really isn't that difficult to do.
Frankly, my opinion on the matter is that anyone who complains about the forums is just too lazy to be bothered to learn how to use them and probably wouldn't have anything worthwhile to contribute to the contest due to that laziness. But that is merely my opinion and I certainly don't want to cause any trouble either. Any one who doesn't like my opinion is welcome to message me about it though and not clutter up this wiki with more complaints.
2006-11-30 [Ocean Soul]: I complained at first as well :P Then I found out how they work and now it's a piece of cake!
2006-11-30 [dayah]: ocean your always so up beat...*hugs* Thanks for being cheerful!
2006-11-30 [Ocean Soul]: *hugs* :)
2006-11-30 [Sunrose]: I didn't dare to touch them until I had no other choice, now I can't do without them. The navigation is pretty excellent once you've figured out how it works, especially since you don't have to go look for new posts: Elftown shows you when there are any and even takes you there.
On a sidenote, contestwiki's usually aren't the best places to chat. They are watched by a couple of maintainers who usually are quite busy doing things, they tend to not have time digging through heaps of wikicomments to see if anything important was said :/
2006-11-30 [Ocean Soul]: I second that!
2006-12-02 [RadiationNation.]: I don't understand what's meant by "they must be uploaded on elftown" does that mean at some time or right now? Or does it mean it has to be in a wiki?
2006-12-02 [Yuriona]: It means you have to upload it to your Elftown house in order to post it in the contest. No hotlinking from other sites allowed.
2006-12-02 [Fizban]: sorry I just saw the theme now, and I must say, IT'S QUITE AWESOME!!
kudos for whoever thought of it :D
Makes me want to participate, while intimidates me at the same time XD
2006-12-02 [Ocean Soul]: Aw no, don't be intimidated.. we're all no professionals here ;) But you can have some fun with trying to achieve the hollywoodish glamurous effect ^___^
2006-12-02 [Fizban]: I need to force my best friend to pose for me, and steal my brothers digital camera loyl.
2006-12-03 [Fizban]: Nice! :)
2006-12-05 [Lerune]: Wow...you know, I think the one on my house might fit the theme for this... Hmmm....
2006-12-07 [*Sakura-chan*]: How do I join?
2006-12-12 [Thistlewood]: I have a question, I don't see it in the rules. Does the photo have to be of you, or can it be another member of Elftown?
2006-12-12 [Yuriona]: You can be the subject or you may use a model but you still have to submit the proof photo of the model holding the required sign. :)
2006-12-12 [Thistlewood]: Thank you ma'am! That is what I needed to know!
2006-12-12 [Yuriona]: You're welcome. :)
2006-12-13 [Ishje]: why do I have to be a member of a forum??? I never come at the forums but I do spend a lot of time on ET. to I also have to be acktive on the forums when I do get there only to join?
2006-12-13 [Sunrose]: No you don't have to be active there, but you are required to join it yes..
You might discover a new fun world while you're doing so! ;)
2006-12-18 [lady nytmare]: The proof of the genuineness (is that a word?), must that exist? because I'd like to use a black and white photo I took of myself some years back, and it would be pretty difficult to recreate it, since I look entirely different. Should I just take a new photo and scratch the other entry?
2006-12-18 [Linderel]: Yes, it must exist, so I recommend you take an entirely new photo. (And yes, it's a word. :)
2006-12-19 [toycar]: haha, im onto my 3rd year being on ET and i've shyed away from the forums...this could kick start me into them... im not sure thats an entirely good thing, my time online may...increase even moreso >.>
2006-12-21 [siocca_scusi011]: Wait, you have to have a person in it?
2006-12-21 [Lerune]: So, I think I should get creative and do a piece for this...wonder what I can come up with? ^^ Although, I am still working on my Secret Santa pic, so it'll have to wait a bit. >_>
2006-12-21 [Papa Don't Preach]: how do you make the proofs small?
2006-12-21 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: <img100:
2006-12-21 [Papa Don't Preach]: thank you!
2006-12-25 [Empee]: Greta Garbour? o.O --> Garbo
2007-01-15 [pajero]: hey is there any place for me too?
l have no camera but :)
2007-01-15 [Captain Heart]: i just put up a photo can you tell me what you think. thank you for your help and time
2007-01-17 [Pathos]: Question!
Can we do a modern revamped version of Hollywood glamour?
2007-01-17 [Sunrose]: What do you mean? :)
2007-01-17 [Pathos]: Well,
a typical glamour portrait. But the model is wearing a plastic dress.
2007-01-17 [Sunrose]: Plastic?
2007-01-17 [iippo]: Plastic as in PVC?
2007-01-17 [Papa Don't Preach]: lol... :S
2007-01-17 [Sunrose]: Well, aren't most modern clothes made out of some kind of synthetic? :p
But I was just not sure what plastic refers to, could also be garbage bags >__>
2007-01-17 [Lothuriel]: This is an example of what I am refering to,
2007-01-17 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: Vinil was the bomb! Still is!
2007-01-17 [Lothuriel]: Garbage bags...hmmm...
2007-01-17 [Papa Don't Preach]: lol
2007-01-17 [Atayemi]: I did it last year..x)
2007-01-18 [Wulf Skjaldr]: Yay! Nice contest. :D
2007-01-20 [Mercenes]: I'm gutted I couldn't get my act together to enter this, it's such a busy period!
2007-01-20 [Lothuriel]: We have until midnight ET time.
2007-01-20 [Lothuriel]: Please don't think me stupid but, that means we have something like 4 hours before the deadline from now, right?
2007-01-20 [Sunrose]: 3 Hours now :)
Perhaps if we have enough people asking to move the deadline, we could make an exception?
2007-01-20 [Lothuriel]: Sounds good to me!
2007-01-20 [Sunrose]: Heh =)
2007-01-21 [Mercenes]: yes!
2007-01-21 [Stray Kitty]: So when's the deadline? I was going to enter, but I haven't gotten around to making the picture black and white.
2007-01-21 [Rook]: Have you even read the contest rules? It states it clear on the page.
2007-01-21 [Lothuriel]: Yes, but have you read the comments? there were some statements made that may lead others to believe the deadline might be extended.
