1) Make sure that you are searching for only Farkers/Farkettes. You can use the advanced search, and then filter by Fark. If you do a search, you will return everyone in the system unless you use the filter.

2) Picture is important. SSN has final say on who is chosen; they will not choose a someone to be POD if they're picture is from forty feet away and grainy.

3) The "personality" stuff is important. Yes, really. A nice picture and a great write-up (interesting, funny, witty, well thought-out) make it much more likely to be chosen by Fark and SSN

4) The chosen person will have their image shown on a number of different sites, not just Fark. Poke around > the web a bit, I'm sure that you will find 'em.

5) Voting is important, but not final.

6) You can join and create an ad without spending money.

I would love to vote, but I don't know what's going on. I am not hip all this "SSN" and "POD" lingo that the kids seem to like.
2003-05-02 11:59:59 AM  
Can I vote for Aarkieboy?
2003-05-02 12:00:29 PM  
cold_brains has the creepy jeff goldblume thing going.
2003-05-02 12:00:33 PM  
mine is very pretty

to bad the site isn't up...
2003-05-02 12:00:44 PM  

Does the winner get to go up against (no pun intended) Morgan Whatsherface in the next E/O?
2003-05-02 12:01:06 PM  
Can i vote for ayesha999? After the show last night, i'd vote for her to be president.
2003-05-02 12:01:45 PM  
SSN = Spring St. Networks
POD = Personal of the Day

The guys over at SSN tell me that the POD gets about 30-40 legitimate date requests on the day they are the POD.
2003-05-02 12:02:24 PM  
the only good pictures of myself or other fark friends are those in which we are so red-faced and bombed it's hard to distinguish our faces at all, like this one time they let me run the tap. oh man.
2003-05-02 12:03:33 PM  
"Hello ladies. My name is Harmonia. I enjoy reading Trotsky, biographies on Lenin, Mussolini and Nixon. My favorite hobbies are starting flamewars and continuing my e-mail campaign to a Mr Drew Curtis for reinstatement. If you love to talk about the minuate of Socialism over some Cognac and Cuban cigars, then I'm your man !


2003-05-02 12:04:24 PM  
Aaaaawwwww... I wish I could do this, I want to be voted bestest personal!

lousy boyfriend not wanting me to post a personal ad.... friggin' nazi....
2003-05-02 12:05:44 PM  
I vote for Tesinth. Does he have a profile on there?

Get crackin'!
2003-05-02 12:05:49 PM  
I've seen some of your photoshop skills. A farker/ette should be the POD everyday.
2003-05-02 12:05:54 PM  
definitely NOT the guy who favors Yanni...
2003-05-02 12:06:05 PM

2003-05-02 12:06:24 PM  
lol Antiflag, I don't have an ad up there. I need to join so I can find other like-minded females in my area...
2003-05-02 12:06:45 PM  
Does it have to be a Farker? I found some funny ones last night on Yahoo when I was bored that I'd nominate for pure comedic value.
2003-05-02 12:06:53 PM  
cold_brains isn't even a Farker. We are being tainted with non-Farkers.

EVERYONE VOTE AARKIEBOY he is today's modern Kris Krisofferson (sp)
2003-05-02 12:10:24 PM  
Seriously people we have got to get Aarkieboy, cliches ellen or stuntaz them in PPLLLEAASE.

I never had meaning and direction in life. Now I know why I was put here.

Aarkieboy, Ellen or Stuntaz face on that! It will be the inside joke of an internet lifetime
2003-05-02 12:10:30 PM  
So the person has to have fark in their name? interests? religion? what?
SSN are on a ton of sites now, so some geek is going to get a lot of action if they are picked. Not sure if that is good or not.
I have a profile on this but it is through nerve.com and I don't want to be POD. I'm sure you smart kids can figure out my name on it.
2003-05-02 12:10:31 PM  
If Aarkieboy has a profile, definitely get him to throw up a picture and let's get him nominated. I think that would be awesome..

The POD on Fark won't be a Farker, but next Thursday, the POD will be a Farker on many, many sites..
2003-05-02 12:11:58 PM  
Choose someone that is on Fark, in the advanced search feature, you can choose, search only Farkers..

Also, voting is now on.
2003-05-02 12:12:42 PM  
OK who will spearhead putting Aarkieboy or Ellen up there?
2003-05-02 12:13:40 PM  
M-% POD Personal-of-the-Day !
M-% SSN Spring Street Networks !

2003-05-02 12:13:53 PM  
Why does the ad for fark personals look exactly like the personals ad on the F*ckedCompany.com's website?
2003-05-02 12:15:18 PM  
Bah, I can't search due to technical difficulties. Anyone else having probs?
2003-05-02 12:15:55 PM  
um, is this something we have to register for?
2003-05-02 12:16:04 PM  
I nominate Fb-.
2003-05-02 12:16:20 PM  
why not Wil, I'm sure his wife wouldn't mind....
2003-05-02 12:17:44 PM  
Yeah I'm having problems too. I can pull up the ads for men but not for women. Feh.
2003-05-02 12:18:19 PM  

Fb- specifically with the pic of him holding two Heinekens against his cheeks, and the line "Who's your daddy?"
2003-05-02 12:18:34 PM

[image from img.fark.net too old to be available]
Did they make this graphic look like a breast on purpose or was it subconscious.
2003-05-02 12:19:31 PM  
Do you need to be single?
2003-05-02 12:19:36 PM  
fark has been farked.
2003-05-02 12:19:54 PM  
They are taking a farking..

F'd Company and our POD are the same because they are all "powered" by Sprint St. Networks.

2003-05-02 12:20:33 PM  
No, you dont have to be single
2003-05-02 12:21:07 PM  
This is also the same personal shiat that the Onion uses also. Same dumb questions to fill out--"What will you find in my bedroom?" "_______ is sexy, ______ is sexier." I expect better from Fark. Of course you can ignore the whole stupid thing and just ramble on about anything if you want to. some of them are pretty amusing, and no I don't have one. If i did, I'd be afraid of turn on my computer for six months.
2003-05-02 12:21:51 PM  
From KJS:

Song or album that puts me in the mood: "Well that would be Yanni, of course. Particularly 'Live at the Acropolis.

Well, of course. Stupid question.

2003-05-02 12:22:15 PM  
Doesn't work for me neither.
2003-05-02 12:22:52 PM  
A vote for me is a vote for getting rid of these personals so we never have to see pictures of people like Cold_Brains again.
2003-05-02 12:24:43 PM  
hey, I'm in there, name: azrael_brown. I've got a 4-digit Fark account number, too, which should give me 133t points.
2003-05-02 12:25:13 PM  
Great so now some tool will be staring at me all day long. At least make it an animated gif like the SbB ad.
