    Okay, Chewbecca and I decided, collectively, because no one else is visiting the Photo Group page as often as us ;) that we're going to have a photo contest.

    This is how it's going to go down. PM me the picture you want to submit withing the theme, (we're still deciding what the theme for the first contest is going to be) and then I will upload them to photobucket, so that the pictures are anonymous, and the people who haven't entered will vote on which pictures they like best. When a theme has been decided on (ie, like, water, or people, or something like that) I will make another thread for the voting with all of the pictures number.

    Everyone can vote, even if you entered a picture. The pictures MUST remain anonymous! You cannot tell which picture is yours! If you do, your picture will be disqualified! That way no one gets votes because someone else is their friend.

    There will be three points you can give out. You can give a maximum of two points to one picture, and a minimum of a half point to a picture. No giving fourth points, because my math sucks, and I'm not calculating it. :p

    So, post in here if you'd like to do this! I'm trying to see how much interest there is in doing this.

    Also, you cannot submit a picture if you have already posted it on Chaz. If it can be identified as yours, you cannot post it. So it would be better to just take a photo for the contest, instead of submitting a picture you've already taken.

    Also, if this could be stickied, maybe, so everyone could see it, that would be excellent!

    I wish you luck, it has happened a couple times before and kind of fell flat. I am in if anyone else is.

    Okay, The points, you get three points to give out. You can give a whole point to three different pictures. The picture with the most points will win the contest. You can give a maximum of two points to one picture. And you can give a minimum of a half point to a picture. So, you could give out six half points, or three whole points to a picture.

    Make sense now?

    Yeah, maybe we should keep it to a point is the lowest that someone can vote towards a picture with???

    Go to your User CP, and click Social Groups. It will come up on there. :D

    Okay, no half points. I thought it would be easier, that way you could vote for more photos, but okay, whole points only. That will certainly make it easier on the judge! lol.

    But okay, so lets come up with some themes.

    Water was already suggested, so we have these off the top of my head, someone suggest some more!

    Water
    People
    Black and white (or greyscale really, lol)
    Patterns...

    Okay, someone suggest some other stuff.

    We can also do emotions like: regret, silly, embarrassment, happiness.
    These can all be things that make you happy, like, say the sun makes you happy, you could post a picture of the sun.

    It's all relative. Just make it creative, artsy, and meaningful.:D

    I guess the point of the points (HA.:p) would be that people would be allowed to vote for more than one pic. Say they like person A's pic, but they also like person B's pic a lot. They can vote for both.

    Person A's pic is awesome and so is person B's pic, but they may like Person A's just a little more.
