2008-11-03 [Jitter]: Hehehe. I need new rechargeable batteries *sigh*
2008-12-15 [Hedda]: Hm... I wonder if I should donate my party photos. The problem is that even though the photos are free, the persons displayed on them can't be used in any way. Then I'm not sure about the value of them... Maybe a smaller selection to show "party" would be useful for people who wants a picture to their party-page.
2008-12-16 [FamousPanda]: so just a question, how do you get the colored badge?
2008-12-16 [Jitter]: Donate 100+ reference pictures
2008-12-17 [Chimes]: :D Thank you, Hedda. (Sorry in advance if I ask you some stupid questions while I am getting the hang of it. XD)
2008-12-18 [Chimes]: Thanks, Jitter... :] *goes off in search of how many, then goes to badge* :D
2008-12-19 [Hedda]: Yes, the link was to her hamster images.
2009-01-10 [Hedda]: Note that the submitters to EPRM Feet Reference got the coloured badge. I thought they were worth it.
I just hope they don't get lazy and stop submitting now... Or at least convince someone else to start doing it.
2009-01-10 [Chimes]: Hehe. :P Have you badged them then? Or is that a to-do?
I'm guessing they still need to be put up here. :P
2009-01-11 [Chimes]: Alright. I'll take a look.
2009-03-07 [Chimes]: Yeah. I've been getting confused. >.< I'm not entirely sure how you want me to set them out on here... *being a noob*
2009-03-07 [Hedda]: Do as you see fit. I'm quite sure everyone has suggestions when there is something to have suggestions about.
2009-03-07 [Chimes]: Are the winners on the contest pages? And is there a place where there are links to all of 'em? *will do it today, if possible*
2009-03-07 [Hedda]: Yes and yes, if you're referring to links to all the contests. There is of course no list of all the winners as that list is here.
2009-03-07 [Chimes]: That is indeed what I meant. :]
*now to find them*
Would it be a good idea to put the contest name, the winner and the wiki page of their entries on here? Or just their name? Or another of the possible combinations XD
2009-03-07 [Hedda]: Contest wiki-page link and name.
You can't link to their submitted wiki-pages as they might be many pages and might also be kind of worthless as the content is moved to better reference pictures pages.
2009-03-07 [Chimes]: *feels like a n00b* You can if you want, and I can go count how many images each of them submitted for I think it'll be needed for badging.
2009-03-07 [Lothuriel]: Ok, is there any certain way you want it done, or would you like for me to simply list the winners and the winning wiki?
2009-03-07 [Chimes]: I have no certain way, I'll add in the image count afterwards. *bimbles off to count images*
2009-03-07 [Lothuriel]: Okie dokie hon. If you don't like my way of doing it, feel free to throw rocks at me later.
2009-03-07 [Chimes]: Looks good ^^
2009-03-07 [Lothuriel]: Oh crud! I guess I could have counted them for you! You know, we could add a little amendment to the rules from here on out. When someone submits a wiki to a EPRM contest, they have to list how many photos are in each wiki they submit. What do you guys thinK? It would make the job a lot easier and smoother. And, they can't blame us for not getting the numbers right.
2009-03-07 [Chimes]: Nah, it's fine. I had fun. XD I was counting them to a rhythm and singing the numbers. XD
I like this idea :P
2009-03-24 [Lothuriel]: Ok, thanks!
2009-03-24 [Hedda]: By the way: It's totally OK to miss a few of my images, so don't bother to check what I add. I only edit my number to inspire others.
2009-03-24 [Lothuriel]: or make us jealous, lol
Ok, hon I will remember that for the future.
2009-03-24 [Chimes]: Loth, are we going to find and use that new badging system for this? :]
2009-03-24 [Lothuriel]: *feels stupid* what new badging system?
2009-03-24 [Chimes]: Jitter created more phases for the badges... because two seemed a bit too few, seeing as we're hoping for loads of images... somewhere in the forums there is a link to the wiki with the new badges and how you earn them XD
2009-03-24 [Lothuriel]: I will see if I can find it, then.
2009-03-25 [Hedda]: I added a new group with only me in it so far. [Jitter] should be there too, and a bunch of other people who know perfectly well how to add their own stuff (and increase their value here). I'll leave it to the Reference Photographers to train people for it and write them here.
The idea is to recognize that if you do put up loads of photos, you don't have to ask every time you do it, if you know how to do it right.
2009-03-25 [Chimes]: I think she liked it. *ponders*
2009-03-25 [Lothuriel]: What is the link to the new group?
2009-03-26 [Hedda]: The Reference Photographers working group is just mentioned here on this page.
2009-03-26 [Lothuriel]: Gotcha! ^__^
2009-03-30 [Hedda]: What about sorting the submitters after amounts of photos submitted instead of after their usernames? That would make it a little more competitive and fun I think.
There is no competitive smiley! I have no idea how one would look like though.
2009-03-30 [nehirwen]: That smiley looks rather determined though. ;)
I have nothing against it.
2009-03-30 [Chimes]: At first I thought they were lined up under the appropriate badge... we could do it like that? It'd look good, I reckon. In order of how many photos submitted, highest to lowest, under the appropriate badge.
2009-03-30 [Hedda]: OK, I've listed people now under the next badge that they might eventually get if they donate more. (Otherwise I have nowhere to but the ones who have donated less than 10 images)
2009-03-30 [Chimes]: Once the voting for my contest is done there will be a lot more images :P Seeing as I asked every participant if they minded having their images in the reference pictures archive (fully credited etc)... :P *is sneaky* I'm going to have some badging to do...
2009-03-30 [Chimes]: By the by, you know the first badge says you have to have 10 to get it... well, everyone on that list that I have looked at have got the badge even if they don't have ten images. O.o
2009-03-30 [Hedda]: Oh, well. I guess I better edit the list then.
2009-03-30 [Hedda]: Hm... Or mostly the description of the first badge... Hm...
2009-03-30 [Chimes]: You could change it to 'up to 10 images'?
2009-03-30 [Chimes]: Also... where did the top of the page go? O.o
2009-03-30 [Hedda]: Hm... This is maybe just strange. The idea is that it should be seen as one list with the badges between the names.
2009-03-30 [Chimes]: I'm confused... I see them going across... is this not right?
2009-03-30 [Hedda]: I meant "badges", not "pages" as it stood before. I have no idea what you're asking though.
2009-03-30 [Chimes]: You confused me :P I thought the page was displaying wrongly... or something. I'm just... really confused.
2009-03-30 [Hedda]: is now displayed under the names there, unlike the other badges that are above the lists. Because the ones in that list already have the badge.
2009-03-30 [nehirwen]: I don't think it looks pretty.
Why aren't they listed under the badge they can achieve next like the rest?
2009-03-30 [Hedda]: Because they already have the badge. I guess the sensible thing to do is to list everyone under the badge they have instead then.
2009-03-30 [nehirwen]: They already have the badge they can achieve next? xD
Looking good this way, and makes sense, double good. ^^
2009-04-06 [Chimes]: Or is it who submitted them that gets the badge rather than who took them? O.o
2009-04-06 [Chimes]: He has more, I've seen his name pop up on other wikis as well.
2009-04-06 [Lothuriel]: Do you remember which ones?
I will green badge him and then we can figure out if he needs an upgrade later. Sound good?
2009-04-06 [Chimes]: There was something on the mouth reference pictures page... on a subwiki.
2009-04-06 [Lothuriel]: Ok...so do you agree that we should go ahead with the green badge?
2009-04-06 [Chimes]: Yeah from what I've seen there aren't more than 100.
2009-04-06 [Lothuriel]: It are done. I have to run out for a bit but, if you want me to count them up I will do that and fix the water ref when I get back.
2009-05-05 [Hedda]: Why is there a number in the Elftown photo reference marathon Contest Winners table? It makes no sense there.
I'll write the ones getting badges there. I give badges to more than one if they have submitted well done pages.
2009-05-05 [Cillamoon]: Hedda, exactly what does it mean by pictures "donated"?
2009-05-05 [Chimes]: Pictures you've donated to the gallery... and thus for the members of Elftown to use without restriction. So essentially it means 'given', 'submitted', pick a synonym.
2009-05-05 [Cillamoon]: Ahhh...gotcha. One more question, sorry, would all the images I have put up as Stock Images count? Or is there an official way to "give" them?
2009-05-05 [Cillamoon]: hmmmm...okay. Well that definetely answers my questions, thank you!
2009-05-10 [Cillamoon]: Awesome! Thank you Hedda! I see it there too! Double thank yous!
2009-07-19 [nehirwen]: That's right. :)
2009-07-19 [Nioniel]: okies! :)
2009-08-24 [*Phoenix*]: I have more photos now!
2009-11-03 [Cillamoon]: I actually have 430 images submitted now if someone could please update my number. Thanks
2009-11-03 [Cillamoon]: I understand that, and all the images that I have submitted and that have been ADDED to the reference pictures adds up to 430 images.
2009-11-03 [Nioniel]: I'll nudge Loth and see what's going on then.
2009-11-03 [Lothuriel]: Yes, I was working on yours when I got sick. As soon as I recover, I will finish. Your numbers will go up too. I count them as I go, so that I don't get things messed up.
2009-11-03 [Cillamoon]: No worries love, I went through all the pages and counted every single one mine that have been added, so the count is now 430. It took me forever to go through all of them too! Whew!
2009-11-03 [Lothuriel]: But, I haven't finished adding yours yet.
2009-11-03 [Nioniel]: :)
2009-11-03 [Cillamoon]: I noticed. ^_^ When you get the time Lothuriel darling, it's no worry.
2009-11-03 [Lothuriel]: Gotcha!
2009-11-18 [Cillamoon]: I always see updates for this page, but can never tell what the updates were specifically..
2009-11-18 [Nioniel]: I updated my count.
2009-11-18 [Lothuriel]: Try the "view differnt" button, located on the right side bar menu.
2009-11-18 [Cillamoon]: That is awesome! I never knew that! Thank you Lothuriel!
2009-11-18 [Lothuriel]: No problem hon.
2009-12-03 [Nioniel]: W007!
2009-12-31 [Nioniel]: :)
2010-01-04 [*Phoenix*]: hmm...I only counted 127 in my photos.....huh
2010-01-04 [*Phoenix*]: I still don't get where all those pictures came from. I counted all the ones that I have submitted and have in Reference Pictures and I only have 131: that's including the 4 roses that were in the Flower section that I had deleted, but they were still there.
2010-01-04 [Lothuriel]: I will check it out when I get home.
2010-01-05 [Nioniel]: [*Phoenix*], I added the photos from the snow reference wiki to your count. The mix up on numbers was my bad, I must have counted a few photos twice that were submitted in the same wiki more than once. You're all set now with the count you have up there.
2010-01-07 [*Phoenix*]: sounds good. and I'll add back the 4 rose photos. :) Glad we got it all figured out!
2010-01-07 [Nioniel]: Yup, yup.
2010-01-18 [*Phoenix*]: hmmm...once again we've come to another problem I have 290 as my total....
2010-02-06 [dancingsheep]: XD Thanks, deary!
2010-02-06 [*Phoenix*]: Welcomes!!
2010-05-31 [*Phoenix*]: I fixed all the pictures that got all messed up so I have 511 now...
2010-07-02 [Akayume]: Why does this page keep changing? o.o
2010-07-02 [Nioniel]: As I add photos to Reference Pictures I update people's counts here.
2010-07-02 [Akayume]: Ahhh, I see. That makes sense. (: And anything we enter in the marathon will transfer to here?
2010-07-02 [Nioniel]: Yup, photos submitted to EPRM sessions are added to Reference Pictures which allows us to keep track of how many photos you submit. As the number of photos you donate goes up, your badge gets updated accordingly. However, you can also donate photos in wiki form by submitting them to Reference Pictures Submissions. Submitting directly to that page is the fastest way to up one's badge, as [dancingsheep], [Cillamoon] and I discovered.
2010-07-02 [Akayume]: Oke. :D Thanks for the info!
2010-07-02 [Nioniel]: No problem!
2010-07-12 [W.L.]: Congratulation
2010-07-12 [Nioniel]: Thank yoouuuu!
2010-07-13 [dancingsheep]: Congrats, Mel!
2010-07-13 [Nioniel]: Thankies!!
2010-07-21 [*Phoenix*]: Okay. I wrote down everywhere I had pictures. There were some that weren't put up that were still in my pictures so it now comes to 717. That now matches mine so we shouldn't have any problems now. :]
2010-07-21 [Nioniel]: Glad you got it figured out!
2010-07-21 [*Phoenix*]: Me too!
2010-07-21 [*Phoenix*]: Congrats on getting over 10,000. Way to go, Nioniel! ^_^
2010-07-21 [Nioniel]: Thank you!
2010-07-23 [*Phoenix*]: You're welcome. *bows*
2010-07-27 [Cillamoon]: Nionel, I see that my images for Blazing Inferno and San Diego were added from the EPRM contests, but the number of images I have has not changed? Would you mind adjusting this please? Thank you so much!
2010-07-27 [Nioniel]: :)
I closed the sessions and did announce winners, but I haven't made it to that particular session yet as far as adding anyone's photos. I'm on a slow connection right now, and all I've added so far have been the ones from the EPRM Book Reference, which took ages on this pc, so I'll be waiting until later today when I can get on a faster connection to add anyone's photos from the Fire session or the Apocalypse session.
No worries, everything will be counted up, added, and properly badged by the end of the day, I haven't forgotten you.
2010-07-27 [Cillamoon]: No worries, just wanted to make sure I was on the same page and not missing a part of the picture. Thanks so much for clarifying! :)
2010-07-27 [Nioniel]: Also, I see that your Blazing Inferno wiki actually is already listed in that section of Reference Pictures, but I didn't add it, so it must have been submitted quite a while ago to Reference Pictures Submissions. I'm undert the assumption then that if your wiki is already added here, that the numbers were already adjusted to reflect those in that wiki.
Maybe [Lothuriel] or yourself added that wiki, but I know that I didn't, and I definitely didn't today.
2010-07-27 [dancingsheep]: :D
2010-11-22 [Flisky]: Thanks yo! ^_^
2010-11-22 [Flisky]: I thought I should warn you I have more photos on the way...
2010-11-22 [Lothuriel]: I have tons but, can never get them to upload. Elftown and my interwebs do not coexist well.
2010-11-22 [Flisky]: As soon as my current batch loads I'll add them.
2010-11-22 [Akayume]: Oh no! :( I have to usually do something else while I upload a huge file. I think one took close to thirty minutes once. :O
2010-11-23 [Flisky]: Okay, I think I posted the last of them for tonight.
2010-11-24 [Nioniel]: Thank you. :)
2010-11-24 [Flisky]: ^_^
2010-11-24 [Nioniel]: Between those two submissions, though, I only found 37 images, yet she has the badge used for those having submitted 100+ images. Not sure why that is.
2010-11-24 [Flisky]: So does Cid. I think Hedda gave them the colored badge when he did the badging. (Cid only has 18 submissions, btw.)
2010-11-24 [Nioniel]: KK.
2010-12-13 [Flisky]: Slowly whittling my way up there.
2010-12-13 [Nioniel]: :)
2011-04-20 [kians mummy]: that looks alot better
2011-04-20 [Nioniel]: Thanks. :)
2011-04-20 [kians mummy]: what does it take to become a boss on here
2011-04-20 [Nioniel]: The Photo Reference Bosses are dedicated, active members of Elftown who have worked hard to submit high-quality photos to Reference Pictures and the EPRM sessions. They know all of the pseudo-html that they need to in order to maintain all of the relevant pages to this project. Among other things. :)
2011-04-20 [kians mummy]: ok hun
2011-04-22 [Lord Josmar]: Now that we have a different badge for those that won a competition is my Reference Photographer badge going to downgrade since I dont qualify for the one I have?
2011-04-22 [Nioniel]: ? Do you have a full-colour badge when you shouldn't? If so, I'll go fix it (in which case, the answer is yes).
2011-04-22 [Lord Josmar]: Well it was originally for winning one, but since that's a separate badge now it wasn't the appropriate one. Just wanted to make sure that I wasn't being rewarded for something I hadn't done.
2011-04-22 [Nioniel]: Well, with the new badge, now you have been rewarded properly! :D
2011-04-22 [Lord Josmar]: Lolz. Hoping to work my way up to that colored badge though. Got a few photos that I'm hoping to have uploaded here soon.
2011-04-22 [Nioniel]: Fantastic! ^^
2011-04-22 [hanhepi]: wow, i've donated 70 images? i'm sure glad someone else is keeping track, that total shocks me.
2011-04-22 [Nioniel]: :)
2011-05-20 [Lothuriel]: I like the kobolds statement. It broke the seriousness of the wiki. I'd like to have it back in some form.
2011-05-21 [SilverFire]: I like stuff like that too, but I didn't think either of them had actually done anything around here in a long while (and if they did, maybe they should be bosses instead)
2011-05-21 [SilverFire]: Howsat?
2011-05-27 [Lothuriel]: YAY!!! *huggles* We get to be kobolds now!! You are truly teh awesomeness! *bows*
2011-05-27 [Lord Josmar]: I do believe I have missed something important. *Scratchs head*
2011-06-16 [Lord Josmar]: I don't know if it is just my browser, but I have two badges for reference photography. The first version green badge and the colored version I just got.
2011-06-16 [nehirwen]: Your photographer badge got updated with the reference photographer badge. Fixed it now. :)
2011-06-16 [Nioniel]: Whoops! Thanks, Nehi! :)
Sorry, Jos, I was in a hurry when I did it.
2011-06-16 [Lord Josmar]: Its k.
2011-07-28 [Nioniel]: <3 It's alright.
2011-07-29 [Stephen]: Jeeze, three images off an upgrade. xD
I should submit some more..
2011-07-29 [Lothuriel]: Yes, you should!
