2006-12-10 [HOOKERin]: are you allowed to do your whole city?
coz then it will be cooler, and i dont stay in a 'neighbourhood
2006-12-10 [Firenze]: I live in a Neighbourhood and I live in Devon, England. So you can't really say that there aren't really neighbourhoods in Britain. Besides the definition of a neighbourhood is is a geographically localised community located within a larger city, town or suburb. For more information, take a look at http://en.wiki
But in short it is photos of the area you live in, basically on the street you live on. Not entire cities, villages or towns.
2006-12-10 [Hedda]: The idea is that you should take some pictures around where you live. If that is a military base in Iraq, a little village or the forest around your house doesn't matter.
Well, except that you might not be allowed to take pictures of the military base...
2006-12-10 [Eyes of the Reaper]: Would it be ok if we added our submissions before the page actually has 10/20 images? (I have 5 but will be out scouting later tonight and over winter break.)
2006-12-10 [Hedda]: So if you take pictures of your entire city and call that your neighbourhoud, I don't see a big problem with that. But the idea is to take pictures of something new. The 100 000th photo-page about London photos is just another page. But a page about a more specific address is more likely something new.
2006-12-10 [Hedda]: [Eyes of the Reaper] it's better to submitt the finished page. And it's much easier to upload all the photos at once. Otherwise you have to merge wiki-pages, and that's complicated.
2006-12-10 [Eyes of the Reaper]: I suppose. The only problem with that is that I can't upload all of the photos at once (plus they're already up here for the most part). Alrighty, I'll wait to add it.
2006-12-10 [Eyes of the Reaper]: "SHOULD BE UPLOADED" and "MUST BE UPLOADED" have different meanings to different people. If it is 'must', you 'should' specify. And yes, I have read it and yes, I do understand it.
2006-12-10 [Big Brother]: better??
2006-12-10 [Eyes of the Reaper]: Much! Now...just have to find a way to move all my pictures to a computer that I can use that is able to upload multiple photos at once...
2006-12-10 [Big Brother]: .zip file.......jus
2006-12-10 [Eyes of the Reaper]: I know. I don't have any programs that can do that, nor do I have the admin privs on any computer to download one.
2006-12-10 [Big Brother]: windows XP has winzip built in, just select the images (highlight the ones you want), right click, and press "add to changingname.z
2006-12-10 [Eyes of the Reaper]: Hmmm... Alright. I'll try that. Thank you, Jon!
2006-12-10 [Eyes of the Reaper]: Not at my mom's, I can't. And I'm only going to be here at my dad's (where all my pictures are) for a few more hours.
2006-12-10 [Hedda]: Sorry, by answer was late
2006-12-10 [Eyes of the Reaper]: Tis ok. :)
2006-12-10 [Hedda]: But you want to create a new ZIP-folder.
2006-12-10 [Firenze]: It does that automatcally on mine, you have the normal folder and a zipped one at the end.
2006-12-10 [Eyes of the Reaper]: It worked. ^-^ Now to get a few more pictures and actually make the page!
2006-12-10 [Hedda]: Remember to use "Edmond" and "Oklahoma" in the wiki-page name! If that's where you're making the photos...
2006-12-10 [Eyes of the Reaper]: I shall. ^-^
2006-12-10 [HOOKERin]: but there isnt anything interesting in a neighbourhood in a city, heres a house and another house and a pub and a road and scatty pavement, and it is all dirty...well now i live in the city centre :P you cant prove that i dont
2006-12-10 [Eyes of the Reaper]: Yeah, neighborhoods are hard, since all the houses look the same, as do the plants, typically. (Here in Oklahoma anyway...)
2006-12-10 [Firenze]: So I live on a council estate and there is nothing special about where I live, all there is on my road is houses and a few good views like <URL:http:/
So I really do not know why you are complaining.
2006-12-10 [Eyes of the Reaper]: Because all there is in a neighborhood here in America are houses. Brick houses. No life. No difference except different shades of brown on the front doors. All the bushes are square, all the flowers are pink. I have pictures of all those already. All I'm saying is: it is a difficult thing to do an album contest on.
2006-12-10 [Firenze]: Well that is pretty much what it is like here where I live, it all depends on where you live, I think depending on the weather tomorrow I could have 20+ photos of the neighbourhood that I live in. There is variety on each different road people live on, all neighbourhoods are different.
I personally think this is an easy topic to do an album contest on.
2006-12-10 [Mental Terrorist]: how great of an idea...putting pictures or where you live on the internet....i know elfpack is pretty safe...but not one i would participate in....
2006-12-10 [FireGypsy]: Now should we walk around and take pictures of the actual neighborhood, like houses, or can we take pictures of the neat plants or landscapes in the neighborhood?
2006-12-10 [Firenze]: Has to be located in your neighbourhood, so roads, houses, trees planted beside the pavement etc.
2006-12-10 [FireGypsy]: Oh ^_^ Neat-O!
2006-12-10 [Firenze]: Yeah it is rather simple ^_^
2006-12-10 [Monster Master]: You're lying! :O
Just kidding. ^_^
2006-12-10 [Enneigard Rebirth]: hmmmmmm.....i take lots of photos of my neighbor hood....
2006-12-10 [Avrora_Black]: Wow! I'm definately going to try to enter here! I have so many beautiful photos of my neighbourhood.
I personally still think it's easier to create and upload a ZIP-file, but it might not be for everyone.
2006-12-11 [stephy.h]: This contest sounds like fun...It's camera time :)
2006-12-12 [Wendy]: What a great competition for stalkers to know where we live! I'll pass...
2006-12-12 [Big Brother]: it's kinda hard to know the location from some pics of things around the place.....you don't have to use signs and such.... i don't think anyone would be like "HEY! i know that tree!!" or "i think that looks like the same off white standard designed house as that town i once drove past 2 years ago!!"
2006-12-12 [Hedda]: Well, if you live on top of Fuji, then your house might be easy to find if you take pictures of the surroundings.
But genererally I think it would be pretty hard to find your house if you take pictures of the village. Of course a real stalker would go to that village and hang out there until you're found, but... Well, go to Amsterdam, [Sunrose] has been seen there!
2006-12-12 [stephy.h]: You can do kind of obscure photos right? Like corners of buildings, leaves and asphalt etc.
2006-12-12 [Hedda]: Well, then it's really not about your neighbourhood anymore.
2006-12-12 [stephy.h]: hmm...
2006-12-13 [RainCloud]: now if only my step-mom would give me back my camera that she confiscated three or four months ago, i'd enter...
2006-12-14 [..oops..]: so its like a series, then?
2006-12-14 [FireGypsy]: No submissions yet? I'm surprised!
2006-12-14 [Big Brother]: fine.....i'll get my cam out... but i already have the prize.
2006-12-14 [FireGypsy]: Now if you win this, would you get another badge? Or would it just say something under your other one? But yeah! Get your cam out! I would do it, but it had been shitty out the past few days, and nobody wants to see my neighborhood all gloomy lol!
2006-12-14 [Big Brother]: or do i have it....i dunno.....meh
2006-12-15 [Mental Terrorist]: HA! i took pictures of my old neighborhood..
2006-12-15 [FireGypsy]: I don't see a neighborhood? I see a fence and a sunset? Where are the neighbors houses?
2006-12-15 [Eyes of the Reaper]: Some people won't let you take pictures of their houses, them, or their pets/children.
2006-12-15 [FireGypsy]: Yeah, but a WHOLE neighborhood denying you? Not likely. Besides, they can't be home ALL the time ^_^
2006-12-16 [Eyes of the Reaper]: @.@ True... Does the roof of a neighbor's house count? lol Or maybe their tree from their front yard?
2006-12-16 [FireGypsy]: Sure, as long as it is the neighborhood I guess ^_^
2006-12-16 [Eyes of the Reaper]: lol Ok... 'cause I caught them in a picture of the sky yesterday... XD
2006-12-16 [Mental Terrorist]: no...there are no houses! Point beingh it is the counrty, that is my neighborhood
2006-12-16 [FireGypsy]: Then it isn't a neighborhood..
Neighborhood: The people who live near one another or in a particular district or area; a number of persons living near one another or in a particular locality; people living near one another; "it is a friendly neighborhood"; "my neighborhood voted for Bush"
If your aunt lives in the country, with nobody around, then it is not a neighborhood..
2006-12-16 [Eyes of the Reaper]: Well, based on the 'people living near one another' part, it doesn't matter how wide-spread they are, as long as she includes some pictures from the closest houses...
2006-12-16 [Mental Terrorist]: there is, in the sunset picture
2006-12-16 [Wendy]: Ha ha ha! Funny comments in reference to mine. Hmmm... This sounds like an interesting contest <3
2006-12-16 [Eyes of the Reaper]: ^-^ Yay! I already entered! First EP/ET photo/art contest!
2006-12-16 [FireGypsy]: Nice entry ^_^
2006-12-16 [Eyes of the Reaper]: Thankies! Also added how they pretained to the contest underneath them. *nod nod*
2006-12-16 [Wendy]: I love the sunset through your tree.
2006-12-16 [Eyes of the Reaper]: The peach one with the tree's limbs all over the picture? :) Thank you!
2007-01-28 [beautiful _ darkness]: There is my album but I have alot more pictures of my nieghborhood to load on my computer which Im about to do
2007-01-29 [Amaranthine]: I almost forgot about this competition too! lol. Its been so quiet.
2007-01-30 [Polar ♥]: I have an entry! *Waves!* The only problem is, I don't know what the heck I'm doing... how do I link it to this page? I've got it uploaded...but now I'm stuck.
2007-01-30 [Polar ♥]: Ok, I think I figured it out. If something is wrong, please let me know.
2007-01-30 [Hedda]: It works just fine! Wonderful pictures!
2007-02-01 [Avrora_Black]: There's my humble but crazy neightbourhood
2007-02-03 [Avrora_Black]: I finished my wiki, now it's done:) When I did it yesterday, I wanted to take more photos but I couldn't (needed-sleep-a
2007-02-04 [Polar ♥]: This contest ends today(or yesterday, rather)? What happens next...do we need to do anything else?
2007-02-04 [Hedda]: I have to put up a poll...
2007-02-07 [beautiful _ darkness]: wow I thought atleast one person would vote for mine but thats ok I like my photos and if other people dont thats ok too
2007-02-07 [Hedda]: [beautiful _ darkness]: I think a few of the images are a little too shaky, but the biggest problem is that there are no comments and that the images aren't arranged. You can for example write "<img500:" instead of "<img:" and you'll get a better format on the page.
2007-02-15 [beautiful _ darkness]: thank you Hedda... the only reason they are shaky is cause I have a constant shake that sometimes is worse then other times
2007-02-16 [Hedda]: Put the camera down on something?
2007-02-16 [Firenze]: Or use a tripod if you have one?
2007-02-16 [Polar ♥]: Yeah, tripods are the best inventions ever for shaky people. I have one that folds up. Its about a foot long, but extends to almost 4 and a half feet. Really nice. I'd look into that if you're really interested in photography.
2007-02-20 [beautiful _ darkness]: yea I could look into one
2007-02-20 [FireGypsy]: Heh, apparently nobody likes my rooftop point of view XD
2007-02-20 [Hedda]: Of course we did, but the desert was cooler
2007-02-20 [FireGypsy]: Florida is a desert XD
2007-02-20 [Hedda]: Öh... No
2007-02-20 [Amaranthine]: Florida is more tropical. Not a lot of cactus and sand like here...
2007-02-20 [FireGypsy]: *shrugs* still, I figured I wouldn't be in second to LAST place, seeing as I had a completely different perspective for my pictures other than just taking a picture of my neighbors' houses and a few plants. I took a picture of them from the SKY! People have no taste for artistic ideas I guess...
2007-02-20 [Polar ♥]: C'mon. You can't win EVERY contest. :D I've seen enough of your smiling face on the front page! (Ok, no I haven't, but...) :D
2007-02-20 [FireGypsy]: Well I just thought that my artistic view would get a more than a few fans that's all. I don't care if I win or not, but being second to last though I have an artistic view of my neighborhood kinda upsets me. Maybe I should just stay lame and not put the extra effort to climb on my roof next time...
2007-02-20 [Polar ♥]: Awww...but then I wouldn't have gotten to see it! Plus, being on rooves is fun anyway.
2007-02-21 [RainCloud]: Keep in mind that we could only vote for one. You woulda been my second. If I had thought more and considered the artistic value, perhaps even first but definately second.
2007-02-21 [Hedda]: Yepp, now we're down to statistics again. If everyone thinks you're the second best, you'll end up last. That's why these votings get interesting: It's never the "best" one that win or come at a good place. It's the submission that most people like. Which pretty often is something many people hate, or think is pretty far out (in a good or bad way).
2007-02-25 [Polar ♥]: Thanks folks, this was fun!
2007-02-25 [Eyes of the Reaper]: Congrats! ^-^
