2010-01-12 [dancingsheep]: Thanksies.
2010-01-12 [dancingsheep]: Gracias.
2010-01-12 [Nioniel]: de nada.
2010-01-12 [Cillamoon]: Merci beaucoup
2010-01-12 [dancingsheep]: Show off. :P Phoenix, more will be up tonight ---> cleaning out my hard drive. :]
2010-01-12 [Cillamoon]: XP
2010-01-12 [Nioniel]: Erm...lasdkfaw
I'm not showing off, I'm just that awesome. I've been working so much at my job that the only thing I've really had time to do is this, so I've been getting it done. Dunno if I'll be on tonight, but I certainly will be tomorrow. You'll be at that next badge quick, chica!
2010-01-12 [dancingsheep]: (The showing off was to Cilla and her French. :P)
2010-01-12 [Nioniel]: Oh.
Well, I'm still that awesome, as is my French/made-up language of hitting random keys.
2010-01-12 [dancingsheep]: *smirks* I like it! MOO --> Moo in French. :P
2010-01-12 [Nioniel]: hahaha.
mcowonc oweifn woiejjweofyh lsdioiw!!! <----"What?" in French.
2010-01-14 [*Phoenix*]: more coming soon!! =)
2010-01-16 [Nioniel]: *will be able to get to these the day after next*
Just remember to remove them from this page if you're going to be submitting them to EPRM sessions. That way they don't get added twice and don't cause problems for the EPRM workers.
2010-01-16 [*Phoenix*]: Yepperdoodles!
2010-01-18 [dancingsheep]: XD Thanksies. :]
2010-01-18 [*Phoenix*]: Yay!! Thanks!!!!
2010-02-11 [dancingsheep]: Whai, thank you, ma'am. XD
2010-02-11 [Nioniel]: No problem-o
2010-04-17 [Diiwica]: Thanks :)
2010-04-17 [Nioniel]: Your quite welcome.
2010-04-18 [*Phoenix*]: coolio.
2010-06-10 [dancingsheep]: Why, thank you.
2010-06-10 [Nioniel]: :)
2010-07-02 [Nioniel]: I'll add the new submission tomorrow when I've got a better connection.
Thanks for submitting, Akay!
2010-07-02 [Akayume]: You are welcome. :D
2010-07-02 [Nioniel]: :)
2010-07-10 [dancingsheep]: 8)
2010-07-13 [dancingsheep]: Thanks, love.
2010-07-14 [Nioniel]: Anytime.
2010-07-29 [*Phoenix*]: Thanks. :]
2010-07-29 [Nioniel]: No problem.
2010-07-29 [Nioniel]: Just so everyone knows, I'll be on vacation for the next two weeks, which means that I probably won't have a chance to add any photos for you from here. You'll either have to wait for me to get back or else wait for another Reference Pictures worker to add them.
Thank you! ^^
2010-08-02 [dancingsheep]: I will work on adding your photos as soon as I can. :D
2010-08-03 [*Phoenix*]: Thanks. ^_^
2010-08-04 [Diiwica]: Thanks =^.^=
2010-08-04 [dancingsheep]: No problem. :D
2010-08-25 [dancingsheep]: Thanks, Mel for taking care of things. I have not had much time. I actually had a note in my planner to update this stuff.
2010-08-25 [Nioniel]: no problem! :)
2010-08-28 [Akayume]: Merci! :D
2010-08-28 [Nioniel]: Mhm. :)
2010-10-19 [Hedda]: You don't need priv 99 to upload images to the wiki anymore. Edited out that part.
2010-10-19 [Nioniel]: Thanks. :)
2010-11-23 [Flisky]: ^_^ Thankees!
2011-04-06 [Nioniel]: We haven't had any new submissions in awhile. :(
2011-04-06 [Akayume]: I know. *cries*
2011-04-06 [SilverFire]: You have had some contest entries, though. :) Though I have to ask: did the start of those contests get announced in the news? I can't find them anywhere in the news archives...
2011-04-07 [Nioniel]: Nuu, the EPRM sessions didn't get announced as they opened. I don't remember them ever being announced as they opened. I do a news announcement for winners, and I poke people for an alarm for voting, but no beginning news. Should I start doing that? If so, awesome, and I'll be all over it shortly, cuz I'll open up another session or two, since we have so few open right now.
2011-04-07 [SilverFire]: Yes. Every official contest should have a news item when it opens. But I would also post a news item about the current ones that are open, since they haven't had one before.
2011-04-07 [Nioniel]: Oke.
2011-04-12 [Akayume]: [kians mummy]; your photos from Bikes & Pavilion Hotel have been added to Misc Objects Reference Pictures & Buildings Reference Pictures. Your count has been updated appropriately.
2011-04-13 [kians mummy]: i'm still so confused
2011-04-13 [Chimes]: What are you confused about? Maybe I can help. :)
2011-04-13 [kians mummy]: so where would my pictures go then, please give me an example, and whats the point in having this page then
2011-04-13 [Nioniel]: This page is to submit photos to of things that aren't included in the ongoing EPRM sessions. So if you look at the EPRM page, it will tell you what sessions are open, and if you click the links for the sessions, you can see what the themes are. Current themes include medical supplies, musical equiptment, food & drink, etc. Look through the open EPRM sessions before you submit photos here, because the theme of one of the open sessions might be perfect for your photos. If you want to submit, say, photos of your dog, and we're not running an EPRM session with the theme 'dogs,' you can submit them here anyway. If you only ever submit photos to this page and don't ever submit the photos to EPRM sessions, you can never win a session! :(
2011-04-13 [kians mummy]: there is four, an none of them apply to my wikis
2011-04-13 [Nioniel]: Right, so you're allowed to submit your photos here then. However, if you can/want to take photos of things that fit the theme of the EPRM sessions and upload them, that is encouraged. :)
2011-04-13 [kians mummy]: witch i tried to do once and was told not to
2011-04-13 [Nioniel]: Which page did you try to add them to, or want to add photos to? Once again, you ARE allowed to submit to EPRM sessions. If you want to link your wiki of photos you want to submit here, then I will place them on the correct EPRM page for you, assuming that they fit the theme. Maybe then you can see better how to do it?
2011-04-13 [kians mummy]: and i don't know where the other one can go
2011-04-13 [Nioniel]: Okay;
The four current themes are these:
Full body shots,
Food and drink.
The images that you submitted on this page do not fit any of those themes. Therefore, you were right to submit them here. When one of the Photo Bosses has the time, we will add your photos to the proper Reference Pictures category.
I think that the confusion here is that you're mixing up Reference Pictures with the EPRM. They are two different things. The EPRM, or Elftown Photo Reference Marathon, is a contest, or a competition. It's just like submitting a photo, or multiple photos in a wiki, to a contest with the hopes that your photos will be the best ones that are submitted to that contest for the given theme.
Reference Pictures is where we store these photos once the EPRM sessions have closed and a winner has been chosen via public poll. No one but Photo Bosses may add photos to Reference Pictures pages because we have a certain way of doing it that involves a lot of formating. Therefore, you may only add your photos to either this page; when your photos do not fit an open EPRM theme, or else directly to an EPRM session page. In the case of the latter, you would edit the EPRM session page exactly like you did for this one. So if you take pictures of a sandwich you made, and upload them to a wiki page, you could then click the EPRM Food and Drink link and then edit that page to say;
[kians mummy] - Pictures of my sandwich
2011-04-13 [Nioniel]: Also, you don't have to try to figure out where we should place your photos that you submit to this page; we already know. ;)
All you have to do is leave your name and the wiki link with the correct number of images within the wiki, and we take care of the rest! Easy Peasy! :)
2011-04-13 [kians mummy]: thanks
2011-04-13 [Nioniel]: You're welcome. Did the explanation help?
2011-04-13 [kians mummy]: yeah
2011-04-13 [Nioniel]: Great! :D
2011-04-13 [Akayume]: Sammie, it's spelled "porcelain". :D
2011-04-14 [kians mummy]: are my pics going to be added then x)
2011-04-14 [Chimes]: Yep, we're just organising our wikis a bit first. :)
2011-04-14 [kians mummy]: ok lol, what ones lol x
2011-04-14 [Nioniel]: All of them! :D
2011-04-14 [kians mummy]: lol, ok
2011-04-14 [kians mummy]: thanks
2011-04-15 [Nioniel]: [kians mummy]; most of your photos have been added and your count has been updated.
Many of the photos in the River Reference wiki were far too blurry, so I only added the clear ones. Our rules have recently changed to exclude very blurry photos from Reference Pictures.
2011-04-15 [kians mummy]: are they better
2011-04-15 [Nioniel]: Much. I'll add them in a bit.
2011-04-15 [kians mummy]: ok hun
2011-04-18 [Ravendust]: I'll have plenty more to submit later, Elftown doesn't want me uploading folders of images right now. :-/
2011-04-18 [Chimes]: More of the fall ones or more in general? :)
Elftown is having problems at the moment, probably because of the upgrade. Do you think you could go and post in <forumnumber:2> about it? You'll need to state which browser you're using and what's happening when you try. :)
2011-04-18 [Ravendust]: More in general, there are deer, summer hiking photos, and some really neat waterfall photos to upload.
It could just be my laptop itself, I'll try again later and if it doesn't work again I'll go ahead and post in there, thanks. :)
2011-04-18 [Chimes]: [Ravendust]; your photos have been added, your count has been listed and you have been badged.
<forum:Elftown, Bugs> is the forum I meant, I messed up in my first comment. Sorry about that. Welcome. :)
2011-04-19 [Lord Josmar]: I dont have a bunch of photos to upload so do I HAVE to create a zip folder to upload them or could I just upload them separately?
2011-04-19 [kians mummy]: you can upload them seperatly like i did
2011-04-19 [Lord Josmar]: Woot! Cause last time I uploaded a folder it took forever. Lets hope the upload photo button's working now.
2011-04-19 [kians mummy]: it is
2011-04-22 [Lord Josmar]: Well, that's all for now.
2011-04-22 [Akayume]: I don't think it's a big deal. (:
2011-05-06 [iippo]: Lessee if I managed to get this right...
2011-05-06 [Nioniel]: 7. Formatting
Please place ALL photos you wish to submit into a wiki with a related name to the photos you're submitting. All photos should be high-quality. Please place your submissions onto this page using this format:
Username: Wiki : Image Count
But we'll take care of them anyway. ;)
2011-05-06 [iippo]: Count, bah :P Would "many" and "some" be enough of an indication? :P
2011-05-06 [Nioniel]: Suuuureee. :P
Or no, not at all.
2011-05-06 [iippo]: There. I figured it's easier for me to look in the folders of pictures.
Except that they lied, they were all off by one. Ah well, now is correct (mebbeh).
2011-05-06 [Nioniel]: Awesome, thanks. :)
The computer I use at home won't load up images half the time, and the other half of the time, it takes about twenty minutes for each page to load. >.<
2011-05-20 [Lothuriel]: [Lord Josmar], your photos have been added and your count has been updated! Thank you for your submissions! You are only 29 photos from a badge upgrade so, get out there and start snapping!!
2011-06-01 [Chimes]: Mystin, can you give us an image count please? :)
2011-06-01 [Chimes]: And did you still want to submit the portraits or are you withdrawing them? (Unless someone's already sorted them but there should be a comment on here... if they have :P)
2011-06-01 [Mystin]: Yeah I withdrew the portraits one because I want to take a few new face shots before doing that one. Thanks for the update.
2011-06-02 [Cillamoon]: [Mystin], your photos have been added to their appropriately themed pages (meer kat, giraffe, statue, food & drink) and your count has been updated. Thank you for your submissions!
2011-06-15 [Lord Josmar]: Oh boy did I just hit the mother load! I just went through my pictures and found a crap ton of photos that can be posted! Putting them up shortly. I'm also going to post them as several different wikis so that it will be easier to sort them.
2011-06-15 [Akayume]: Thank you. (: If there are a lot of images, we'd also appreciate it if you included a count. :P
2011-06-15 [Lord Josmar]: Will do. I can cheat now, ever since I discovered the Item Count at the bottom of the folder, lolz. A few of them I may not know exactly what catagory they will be in so I may throw them all together, like the bugs and what-not.
2011-06-15 [Akayume]: S'oke. We can sort them. (:
2011-06-15 [Lord Josmar]: If you find any of them do not meet with the current quality standards, just let me know and I will remove them and change the photo count.
2011-06-15 [Cillamoon]: [Lord Josmar], your pictures from Josmar's Turtles, Frogs, and Lizards have been uploaded into their appropriate catagories (Amphibians & Reptiles) as well as your count has been updated on Reference Photographers. The rest of your photos shall be added shortly, thank you for your submissions!
2011-06-23 [Chimes]: Mystin, can you please remember to put image counts with your submissions. :) It makes it easier for us to update your count.
2011-06-23 [Cillamoon]: [Mystin], the first image off of your first submission page currently posted has been added to the Mountain & Hill Reference Pictures page. Please see your first submission page for my notes as to the adding of the rest of your images, thank you! (And I updated your oount by the one as well)
2011-06-23 [Nioniel]: [Mystin]; your photos have been removed from the submission page as the majority of them have been stolen from the internet and are not, in fact, yours.
Please refrain from submitting to this page until the Photo Reference Bosses tell you otherwise.
2011-06-24 [Mystin]: If your talking about how people on Flickr and Tumblr steal my pictures, that is not my problem. Don't you dare ever have the audacity to call me a thief ever again!
2011-06-24 [Chimes]: See my reply to you on privs.
2011-06-28 [Lothuriel]: Did you make sure to get their Model license agreements sighned? j/k
2011-06-28 [Karithina]: Does having them hop around on a form with inky feet count? :P
2011-06-28 [Lothuriel]: Hmmm....I think that shall suffice XD
2011-06-29 [Cillamoon]: [Mortified Penguin], your 3 sky photos have been added to Sky Reference Pictures and your count has been updated and also includes the three scenery pictures that I am about to upload to Landscape Reference Pictures. Thanks!
2011-07-27 [Stephen]: Not sure how good all of them are, since they were all taken with my phone. ^^;
2011-07-28 [Lothuriel]: They will be good for drawing references but, probably not so much for photo manipulations :/ Cute puppies though!
The only one I could not add was It's a cool pic but, it's a little grainy.
[Stephen] You have been badged and your pics added!
2011-07-28 [Mortified Penguin]: I see nothing wrong with the truck orgy.
2011-07-28 [Lothuriel]: LOL....
2011-07-28 [Stephen]: =D
2011-07-30 [Lothuriel]: Oh wow! This
I have a better shot of it somewhere.
Looks very similar to a church here in Kentucky (USA)
For some reason, that fascinates me.
2011-07-30 [Karithina]: Ohhh that's almost uncanny! I should go get a photo from the same angle as yours tomorrow to make it even cooler!
Mine is a church in Würzburg called the St. Josef der Bräutigam Kirche/Church.
2011-08-01 [Cillamoon]: Congratulation
2011-08-01 [Nioniel]: *badged* :)
2011-08-01 [Cillamoon]: Thank you! :)
2011-08-01 [Nioniel]: ^^
2011-08-03 [Cillamoon]: [AuroraLumos] your pictures have been added to the Dogs Reference Pictures, and you have been added to our list of Reference Photographers, congratulation
2011-08-03 [AuroraLumos]: ^_^ yay thank you
2011-08-13 [9jlriexqk,ktpk]: Hey, if I give you a picture of my beautiful pup, may I have a badge?
2011-08-13 [Nioniel]: Yes.
2011-08-13 [Lord Josmar]: Wow. Makes it sound like you're just giving them away!
2011-08-13 [Nioniel]: Seems like a fair trade to me. :P
2011-09-26 [Tynuka-Rhytishy]: Okay, I need help, haha. I use to be good at this and now I feel plain dumb. I have like 50 ish photos for different categories. I have my own little wiki Mary's Reference Wiki that I was planning on adding the photos in then submitting the 'new' photos that I haven't submitted here, to this wiki. I have the images uploaded to Mary's Temporary Reference and Mary's Temporary Reference 2. Those are all the new ones I plan on submitting.
I need to know if I can upload the pictures in one wiki, move them to another wiki and still have the 'box' for the photo. Sorry and thanks in advance! ;-;
2011-09-27 [Tynuka-Rhytishy]: I figured it out. Thanks anyway! I'll post when I have it all updated. =]
2011-11-11 [Stephen]: They're all taken with my phone, so it's not amazing quality.
2011-11-11 [Stephen]: Thanks! :)
I figured some of 'em wouldn't be usable. xD
2012-01-19 [Ravendust]: I have a question... I want to do a baby reference page... Some of which take place pretty soon after birth- nothing graphic... Worst thing you see is the cord attached to the baby's belly button... These photos were taken by my husband and mother... I'm wondering if I could use them in the reference photos in a folder dedicated to the growth of an infant (from birth to 7 months at this point). I know I, myself, have wanted to draw babies in the past, and couldn't ever really find good reference images... And I've noticed there really aren't any baby photos, either...
Another question- everyone in the photos (except me when I manage to either get a picture of myself or have one taken of me) are family (and doctors) none of which are elftowners... I've been given permission to use the images- nothing written at this point... Do I need to find a way to do that?
2012-01-19 [Nioniel]: That sounds like a great idea for reference images.
I think that as long as they're family and friends, and you have their permission, you wouldn't need a model-release form. Are you very sure about the doctor(s), though, that they're fine with having their image used in any way by anyone? Of course, you could always note on the page that the images are not to be used to depict, violence, sexual themes, hate, etc.
2012-01-19 [Ravendust]: I'm not 100% on the doctors, but putting the note on the page sounds like a great idea. Thanks, I'll get working on getting the images up :)
2012-01-19 [Lord Josmar]: If you create a baby reference photo wiki let me know and I can submit a few hundred photos, lol.
2012-01-19 [Ravendust]: I've got quite a few too, I've been waiting for the folder to upload for a while! lol, getting it formatted now :)
2012-01-20 [Lord Josmar]: I gotta get the photos on my computer first then I can upload them. Probably gonna do it later when the kids are asleep.
2012-10-15 [Lord Josmar]: I'm having trouble uploading some photos, but as soon as I get them done, I will put them up here.
2012-10-16 [Stephen]: I'm starting to really like the Upload a Folder option in the house. xD
I don't know if I'm supposed to have an exact subject -- I just generally take pictures of things I find interesting on my walks outside with my phone. It gives me some level of motivation to go outside and wander around, other than doing it just to do it, I guess. *shrug*
Hopefully the random nature pictures work -- they should be good enough quality. They're much nicer than my old phone's quality. ^^
2012-10-16 [Stephen]: Oh, I reworded this line:
"Although because Stock Photographers usually uploaded by the bulk it is better to use the "Upload a Folder of Images" feature that is shown on your house."
"However, because Stock Photographers usually upload photos by the bulk, it is generally better to use the "Upload a Folder of Images" feature located on your house."
Hopefully no one minds. The first line didn't make very much sense.
