The Voice of Doom: Looks like Fark thinks I've some catching up to do: oh dear

Also, This Futurama intro "caption" made me glad I hadn't yet taken a sip of my drink.


That is awesome

Thanks again, Gwinny.
We'll have to stop meeting like this or Drew will get suspicious.

I see the same thing. I had Farkbacked the same thing a few weeks ago as well.


I figured it was just some database hickup after Fark got overloaded when the marathon bombs exploded.

wickedfish:Just for giggles Google bobcat cactus.  Knew I had seen it.  Used to work at IBM Tucson, we had a momma raising 2 cubs between two of our buildings.  Big Blue roped it off so they would not be disturbed.

This is one of the many contests that Fark can be particularly proud of.

Do any of the database nerds know how often a winning entry is submitted after a thread goes live?

libranoelrose: Do any of the database nerds know how often a winning entry is submitted after a thread goes live?


The FPC used to show stats for the for who got the most votes for submittals one and two hours after contests went live, but not wins.  My first two wins were as a Liter but then I got sponsored and my life was ruined.  My guess would a post-live winner would be in the 5%-10% range.

Luket's computer of the future is probably the most famous entry-that-won-after-going-live.  In fact, it was only in 3rd place before it went viral.

It's wrong that I laughed as hard as I did for that shop.

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.

then there is this whole set.

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 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.

Nope. Alligator snappers are freaking enormous.

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!

Thanks for the submissions, folks. We had a lot of ones to choose from and were able to get the PS queue loaded up a bit.

Of course, that doesn't mean stop: we like to get as many submissions as possible, to give us the widest variety of contest subjects.

Thanks again.

Nope. There was this post in 2007 that indicated he had been discovered (with pics). You decide, but it is certainly debatable.

I've always thought that was him. It's that vein over his temple that convinces me.

Conan should invite him on the show.

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

The link you provided just takes me to my "home" page, where I can access my library and such (the page that shows up right after you log in). Browsing around a bit, I can't find a way to access any payment information for my account. How did you get there?
