The forum was originally started by [barutha], but now that he lost ownership, we, [Lady of Lore] and [maluna] are giving it a try. Note: you can now suggest contest themes at the bottom of the photo forum suggestions page

2005-01-28 [duende_negro]: Ow... well... then... ehm.... yeah!..well I don't know. I only have one model and she's maybe it's her. My photos are not that good anyways....andI know they aren't. But...they'll be!!! day...when my camera feels good. (what did I just say?)

2005-01-29 [barutha]: you crazy cat. i wish i had a model.

2005-01-29 [Radioactive Flea]: Mine wouldn't let me post anything.

2005-01-29 [barutha]: your what?

2005-01-29 [barutha]: so then guys, not many of us i know, but you reckon we do a contest or what?

2005-01-29 [duende_negro]: A contest... like what contest?

2005-01-30 [barutha]: not sure. like, who can photograph a pig the best, for instance.

2005-01-30 [Janouk]: But where do you get a pig? ^^

2005-01-30 [barutha]: dont know. visit a farm. just a suggestion.

2005-01-30 [Janouk]: ;) yeah...but maybe a different subject would be easier though ;)

2005-01-30 [barutha]: i know i know. i alwyas chosoe either 'pig' or 'dog; when i want something generic. it is just another, admittedly more confusing, way of writing '####' or something.

2005-02-01 [the dongle master]: How about a word a week. Put a word up and we take pictures relating to that word, at the end of the week submit some.

2005-02-01 [barutha]: yes that sounds good. any ideas?

2005-02-02 [the dongle master]: Ideas for a word? ...Shiny

2005-02-02 [barutha]: shiny, okay.

2005-02-02 [barutha]: alright, ive made a page for it there. please say if you think anything should be changed, i juts threw it together without much consideration.

2005-02-03 [the dongle master]: Good. lets get to work.

2005-02-07 [duende_negro]: THere...I've got osme of my old photos...if you like to see them... but I need to upload new ones.. I have a disc -_-

2005-02-08 [+forgotten+]: where do we ve to put our task of the "shiny" pics? nd whts th topic for thm?only shiny?

2005-02-13 [barutha]: the pistures go in the shiny wiki, it says so up the page there.

2005-02-15 [barutha]: ceom on guys not long in shiny. no pressure.

2005-02-15 [barutha]: does anyone know what were doing with shiny? i mean is this gogin to be a contest or what?

2005-02-15 [Janouk]: You could do it as a contest, or just do it to keep this thing alive, your decission ^^

2005-02-15 [barutha]: well it has a deadline, it ought to have some sort of outcome. perhaps i will make a poll for people to vote which they like. ive never really done anything like this, do we give the winner a badge or something?

2005-02-15 [Janouk]: Well, if you want to have comepetitions all the time, that might be hard to could make a list of the members, and the one who wins get's first place and so on. Every time a contest is held, members compete to get a better position. So for example you stand first, [Khwaish] stands second and I stand third, but then another competition starts, in which [Khwaish] wins first place, so he get's another point...Now, the new order is [Khwaish], you, me. O well, do you get what I mean?

2005-02-15 [Janouk]: joining the competition gives you points, winning them extra points.

2005-02-15 [barutha]: i think i understand. i wouldnt know where to begin in organising taht though. must be difficult to work out.

2005-02-15 [Janouk]: I could try?

2005-02-15 [barutha]: yes? i fyou dont mind. taht would be very useful.

2005-02-15 [Janouk]: Photo Forum Positions Let's try something like this...

2005-02-15 [duende_negro]: I have an Idea for a-- shinyish...! O_O.. but I haven't got time... -_- ow.

2005-02-16 [barutha]: hum, will anyone help me wiht this thing? weve just been given the theme for our next photo unit in college, but im stuck as to what to do for it. it is 'concealed and revealed'. but what the fuck do i photograph for that?

2005-02-16 [duende_negro]: Well... I don't knwo if I could give you an idea.... when you say " banana" I'll photograph a blue fish...

2005-02-17 [the dongle master]: Thats a hard one, I'll think on it.

2005-02-17 [barutha]: bloody education board.

2005-02-17 [Janouk]: Only 7 people are watching this wiki bythe way, so I don't think everybody will join the competitions...

2005-02-18 [$T0®M]: Lets say: 8 people

2005-02-18 [Janouk]: Yep, I noticed ^^

2005-02-18 [barutha]: i wonder who the other 4 are? i wish elftown would let you see who is watching.

2005-02-18 [barutha]: right i must be off, parents home soon. the poll is <poll:44772>, so that can be put up or pormoted whatever pretty soon. righto cheerio.

2005-02-18 [Janouk]: Byebye!

2005-02-19 [$T0®M]: how about a banner? someone?:p a litlle promotion would be good (A)

2005-02-20 [barutha]: sounds good. any ideas?

2005-02-23 [barutha]: can anyone tip me as to what how to put together a makeshift studio using household appliances?

2005-02-24 [Tepi]: Hey everybody! (and sorry for advertising here too ;) but if there's anyone interested in photo manipulation, check out photomanipulators ^_^ new ideas and members are welcome. There are also a banner contest so we need desperately your help there! Thanx! ^_^

2005-02-25 [i am heddas lost brother]: is there a page with photo contests?

2005-02-25 [duende_negro]: Art contest

2005-02-25 [duende_negro]: No wait!... I forgot the name

2005-02-25 [i am heddas lost brother]: :D

2005-02-25 [i am heddas lost brother]: i was like: is this a joke?!:D

2005-02-25 [i am heddas lost brother]: rules: TASTEFUL nudity only. no strippers. no below-the-belt nudity.

2005-02-26 [barutha]: im confused. what are you advertising?

2005-02-26 [e5hnzwu5]: hey.can I join? :)

2005-02-26 [barutha]: of course of course. more the merrier n all that.

2005-02-26 [e5hnzwu5]: yay! thanks.

2005-02-26 [i am heddas lost brother]: @barutha, duende gave me a wikilink to a nudity art contest:P

2005-02-26 [barutha]: oh i see. i was quite confused.

2005-02-27 [duende_negro]: who me ?

2005-02-27 [barutha]: no no, that stimpy hasan person. i was getting confsued with the convo.

2005-03-03 [barutha]: so then! what is next for us to make photographs of?

2005-03-03 [Janouk]: Ice! ehm...Pain, ehm, goldfish ^__^ :P I really wouldn't know, you decide ;)

2005-03-03 [i am heddas lost brother]: the sky? clouds, sun! :)

2005-03-03 [e5hnzwu5]: Ice sounds good. as long as we have ice in Finland :D

2005-03-03 [$T0®M]: hey, theres like a half meter of snow here :) (north of the netherlands) .... so lets do them both: winter

2005-03-04 [barutha]: oh no theres no snow here, all rain.

2005-03-04 [$T0®M]: lol, its still snopwing and its like -10.... wheeeey winter :p

2005-03-04 [e5hnzwu5]: if someone doesn't have snow or ice. ´they can make it :P learn to freeze things..

2005-03-04 [barutha]: that isnt too easy actually. it isnt even still winter here. were approaching spring i think.

2005-03-04 [$T0®M]: ghegheghe, buy some icecream? nah, winter doesnt always has 2 mean snow...

2005-03-04 [$T0®M]: its spring for about 4 days now.... maby spring as new subject? (A)

2005-03-04 [barutha]: then what, rain?

2005-03-04 [$T0®M]: rain....nothin ? this klimat sux

2005-03-04 [barutha]: i know. bloody britain. curse this temperate clime.

2005-03-04 [nokaredes]: my friend's in London, and she says she got snow...

2005-03-05 [barutha]: really? damn them. just us in wales get nothing. too close to the atlantic i expect. i think a winter theme would be too similar to the elftown bosses competition theyve got going.

2005-03-05 [$T0®M]: maby we could use darkness as a theme? ... you can do lots of original things with it :)...yust like the light :p

2005-03-05 [e5hnzwu5]: darkness. sounds cool

2005-03-05 [barutha]: aye that sounds good. lets do that.

2005-03-06 [duende_negro]: I like is the cariben...I live near the beach...."snow" is not a good subject... ow no no no no-. "Darkness"?.... oww look!!  Dark (opposite) shinny!.... ... ow mt... (gives chocolates...).

2005-03-06 [duende_negro]: I'm sorry... but maybe some people over here don't knwo about the contest. So here you go...Thank you ! (looks)                                        <img:>

2005-03-06 [barutha]: wish i could enter that. never done naked photos though. dont know anyone liberal enough.

2005-03-06 [e5hnzwu5]: is nude photo next subject? O___o

2005-03-06 [i am heddas lost brother]: im a volunteer

2005-03-06 [duende_negro]: No.. . Jangle. The nude Photo contest is a contest I made.

2005-03-06 [e5hnzwu5]: okay but what's wrong with the contest wiki page..? :/

2005-03-06 [duende_negro]: Nothing. It's private so people that DON'T have to go there.. can't. But if you are interested you just tell me and add you So you can read about it.

2005-03-21 [Janouk]: *shakes everybody* Still alive? We need to think of another subject, shouldn't we?

2005-03-21 [$T0®M]: indeed, the only fotos I made lately where of drunk friends...

2005-03-22 [Janouk]: Why has [Evad] set his name on number 17?

2005-03-22 [barutha]: haha, interesting point. perhaps he is a rebel. or dyslexic.

2005-03-23 [Evad]: Rebel, why follow when you can lead......okay truth it's my favorite number or lucky one you choose.

2005-03-23 [e5hnzwu5]: radical ;D

2005-03-23 [Janouk]: Well anyway, [Evad] your photo's are cool! ;)

2005-03-23 [Evad]: Thank you [Janouk], I'm glad you liked them, I have two more at the nude contest too

2005-03-30 [Janouk]: How about 'Joy' as next theme? I just made something up a second ago, but I really think we should start a new one! ;)

2005-03-31 [barutha]: joy? hmmm. im not sure how id go about that. perhaps itd be a challenge though

2005-04-01 [duende_negro]: "joy"?... but anything could be joy.. to me bananas and to her... killing bananas ( those are stupid examples... -_- ), So it could be anything...

2005-04-01 [barutha]: ah yes, good point. okay perhaps we should do that.

2005-04-01 [e5hnzwu5]: why not :D

2005-04-01 [$T0®M]: good idea

2005-04-01 [Elmiira]: hi.. I'm new here.. :) I love photographing so this is my place! ehhe..

2005-04-03 [barutha]: what do you use to photograph then duende?

2005-04-03 [duende_negro]: Well for now a 46 mm which is... not working good. Though I have the Digital with no bateries, but that was before! Now it has... But Next week I'll get my camera to Dr. Camera Man. Hope He fixes it. ... I Hope

2005-04-03 [barutha]: ah well good luck. dr. camera man? you are crazy

So, please, vote for our best banner at <poll:47658>! ^_^ And we also need new members, so you're all welcome there if you're interested! Thanks! ^_^
