Pictures across the top...

Postby Irongirl » Tue Nov 26, 2013 12:28 pm

It's been awhile since they've been updated.

Any chance we could use this thread to submit/propose new ones?

There are a ton of people that show up that haven't been active members on the site in a long time.....

OK, I'll bite as I'm not in there. The one from my avatar is the best I've got:

I'm not up there either. I'd suggest any picture Andy took of me :lol:

The mods have spent the day at the mod retreat, consulting on this matter, and here is the plan:

1. Irongirl, as suggester of the idea, is deemed to have graciously volunteered to implement the plan
2. All maniacs, post photos here
3. Photos must be 150 px wide by 100 px high. Crop and resize them to get to that size.
4. Make sure they're not too blurry or too dark. They have to look good at that size.
5. Individual maniacs have the right to veto pictures of themselves. No exceptions.
5. Collect up about 100 of them.
6. Number them 1.jpg through 100.jpg
7. Email them to ultraslacker when you're done (or something like that), she will upload them

Can we remove pictures of us? There are some awfully old ones of me that I wouldn't mind not seeing anymore. :wink:

This is old, but I love this picture. I don't know how to size it.

this one could/should be cropped more to make the people more visible. :)

Yeah, there is one of me and Scotty from a March 5K waaaaay back when...and I had this weird thing for sticking my chest out in pictures...so it is a bit awkward. :shifty:

I'll go look in my archives to see if I have any newer (non chesty) shots...

Whatever. As soon as we can get the old people to stop driving around the mall parking lot wondering what happened to Fotomat, they can start being included this digital photography thing.
