Hi guys...I'm not sure what the protocol for this may be, but I have a gem of a photo of a friend that deserves photoshopping...can someone give me a run down on the appropriate way to submit this photo for consideration?

Many thanks!

Step 1: Make sure your friend will not kick your ass if he winds up being the subject of a Photoshop contest.
Step 2: Find a reliable image host and upload the pic.
Step 3: Submit it like you would submit a headline, but use the link to the pic and make sure you choose the Photoshop category.
Step 4: Hope it goes green.

I hope that helps. Others may chime in with corrections and tips - at least I hope they will, as I've had about three hours of sleep and am starting to hallucinate.

i'll see your turtle and raise you this one. the two pictures that follow don't show size as well. one does show why you don't want to taunt them too much.

Neat pics. I think I've seen that snapper in the bucket before.

My brother lost the tip of his pinky finger to one, being a dumb kid. The biggest one I ever saw floated to the surface near our boat when we were fishing, I guess to check us out, almost a yard from nose to tail.

The biggest turtle/tortoise I ever saw was at a Bell Labs facility in New Jersey back in the 90's.

It didn't quite take up half of one lane of the access road it was walking across. I was too busy loading out equipment to get a good look though.

That's the first warning sign.

Flab: libranoelrose: Flab: I knew it!

It might be time to update that.

It's a little known fact that Lootie is actually an undercover Chechen.


That ALMOST makes me want to submit a Lootie as an undercover spy contest.

If he's still out there then I think we should go ahead and actively put him in some super positive situations.

The upcoming contest queue has become rather empty.

If you creative types could spend a few extra minutes today finding possible PS contest images and/or coming up with new themes and submitting them, we'd greatly appreciate it.

Either that, or the evil admins will greenlight another Lootie contest.  :)

I spent ALL DAY yesterday trying to fix a problem with my wife's computer. After trying every trick in the book without results (including reinstalling Windows) I finally fixed it at 3 a.m. last night. The problem? She has dual network cards, ethernet and wireless; unplugging the ethernet cable fixed it. Arrghhhhhhh!

Could someone with a premium Photobucket account test something out for me?

I can't get Photobucket to stop recurring payments. The option to do this is here:  http://s1229.photobucket.com/settings/status

When I click "Stop recurring payments" it takes me to a help page. When I return to the "Account Status" page, it says my account is still set to recur payments.

I've tried several times (with Chrome and Firefox) over the last two weeks. My payment has recurred in the meantime.

I've sent messages to support and they aren't getting back to me.

I'm sure it's not just me but could someone try and let me know what happens?

Thanks,

Geordles

I feel for you.

This will not be easy.

It took me 2 weeks to get them to do it for me.

That was maybe 4 years ago?

I'd have to go look back at the scrutinizer to be sure.

In case I was not specific enough previously in this post.

This will be like getting a cactus pulled out of your penis.

I just recently received a message from them saying I needed to update my payment information as my current CC on file has an expiration date of this month. I tried quite unsuccessfully to find where I did that, as they did not provide a link to the form. I submitted a support request a week ago, and the response I got was............


I copied that link you provided and substituted my own photobucket subdomain number 1296 in place of your 1229, but I still didn't make it to that page though I know where it is. I'm not ready to stop my service quite yet and I fear what a successful attempt to try what you are trying may result in.

I suggest repetitive support request submittal until they answer, that will be my plan when the time comes.

As "Pro" user I have a vested interest in this site. For some strange reason I must have indicated "recurring payments" in Jan 2013 (this is something that usually NEVER do because of a nasty situation with a large antivirus company I subscribed to several years back) The practice of recurring payments is common in many businesses but it seems that Photobucket makes it difficult to stop them. What a surprise!

A little sleuthing found a few solutions for future reference. Here is the BBB review, which rates them D-. Apparently Photobucket claims that by clicking the "Stop my recurring payments" link, this is sufficient to stop the service. Now, when you click it, you are sent to the support page, and your hunt for an answer in underway. In the BBB review, several emails queries were required for a staffer to actually qualify the stoppage of recurring payment.
If you use PayPal, you have a simple process. Using a credit card will be harder, but still achievable. So yeah, I'm reviewing my options before Jan 2014.

If I hadn't been half asleep when I tried it last night, I like to think I would have figured out how to get there.

Anyway, same story: I get routed to the Support page, which is a slimy maneuver.

Photobucket Phollow-up:
I decided to make a BBB complaint last night. In the process I had to go to the Photobucket website to get some details, during which I get a pop-up asking me to do a survey.
I complete the survey using the lowest rating for every question ("Very dissatisfied with the service", "Extremely unlikely to recommend to a friend", etc.).
One of the questions is "Why did you visit Photobucket today?"
My reply was "To gather information for a Better Business Bureau complaint"
I just got two emails stating that my recurring payments have been turned off,my credit card has been refunded and my Photobucket account has been reverted to a free account.
