Welcome Back Kotter!

  Hello one and hellllllo all. I now rule this community with an iron first and hope to make it rock the freakin' world upside down.

That was my lame intro.

Seriously though, I really liked the idea behind the doppelganger (Also, please notice my personal default icon is a tribute to the Great Brad) and was excited about this spin-off, though it never really, well, spun off so well. Me and a few peeps have some cool ideas and want to get this bid'ness cooking again with new contests and awesome fun for everyONE!! WHOOO! Please spread the word.

I don't plan on changing things much, except that I ask you post your submissions as comments to the contest post, rather than as new posts. At this point, winners will be determined by a panel of judges. If you think this is not a good idea, and winners should be judged in other manners (such as a public poll) speak up now as I am a very flexible young man.

For now, we're going to have a contest every two weeks, but if people participate in a timely manner, we may jack that up to a weekly contest. Awwwwww yeah! We may even get crazier somehow. I'll stop being lame now and get on with the first contest of the NEW ADMINISTRATION!!!

  No one has posted any contests or anything in here so can I throw something out at you guys?

This is not the actual bio thing here, and forgive me if I step on toes, but its been a nice change of seasons and summer is here and how about I throw out a theme and you all submit up to 3 icons for the theme, just to see what kind of icon people we have out here.

I know we have these monthly themes for photosig on photoSIG itself, and I love going out and shooting pictures related to the monthly theme.

So for the month of May lets try. . . HEAT.

Fire. Flames. Sun. Matches. Candles. Anger. Cooking. Find some way to convey heat in a 100x100 space. As long as its somewhat heat related (hey even a hot color, or a hot and steamy picture within reason), its game!

And if I am out of line by doing this, I'm sorry. I just dont want to see this place go to waste.

Winner gets my admiration!

  Does anyone want to volunteer to maintain this community? Maybe you can do a better job than I have in promoting it, getting members, thinking up creative goppeldanger picture copying ideas, and getting them to actually submit pictures.  
Uh hi

  Hi to the new members.

Do you think it's really worth having another contest ever again? If more than one person replies and says they'll enter the next contest, I'll make the next contest exist. If you say you will, and then don't,

The hard contest ends tomorrow. Goppeldanger project ends shortly thereafter.

The hard contest ends tomorrow.
The easy contest ended a few days ago.

I thought this community was a good idea, but I've done everything I can to publicize it without annoying people too much, and even though we have interested members, virtually no one is submitting contest entries.

Our last contest was won by default, because there was only 1 person to submit anything at all.

This can't be any fun without participation, I kind of am considering giving up.

We are the copygoats

  We have two new icons.
Um, yay. I realized it was kinda silly being a community related to user pics, and not to have any ourselves.
01:32am 07/09/2001
  And still no entries, yet the contestends in less than a week....

Yet another announcement 
04:50pm 14/08/2001
  One picture has been removed from the hard contest (group pictures) below, so if you were working on that picture, please pick a new one. This removal was at the user's request.  
Additional announcement 
10:38pm 12/08/2001
  Justgoto also gets to help judge the winners of his own contest and my "hard" contest when the time comes, as part of his prize last time. You wanna have this privlege? Submit a picture and win the contest(s) then!

Other ideas for prizes to ensue. I'd buy people things for prizes, but I'm broke. If you have ideas, let us know.

Current ideas for contest prizes:
-privleges to judge and think up a new contest
-make people parody your own, your best friend, or your enemie's LJ pics
Contest 2b: Multi-person Pictures ... Difficulty Level: Hard? 
10:22pm 12/08/2001
  This is the hard part of contest 2. (The other part is what justgoto comes up with which will be finalized soon we hope).

This is the contest where you get your friends, family, or random strangers involved! Woo!

Below are five user pictures of current people on LJ. The theme is that each picture contains more than one person, in various poses or positions, heh. You must pick one picture below, and find or take a picture of actual humans in order to resemble that picture as best you can. You are permitted to use graphics software, but if it looks like you cut and pasted people from different photos into one, or anything else obviously fake, you ain't gonna win :) By the same token, if you're good at forging that kind of stuff, and the judges can't tell, well then, give it a try...





So what determines a winner? Your picture must resemble the picture you chose to copy as best you can -- given the people involved in the picture you take. For instance, if you use your five year old sister in place of a picture of an adult, you won't be counted out for your sister being smaller or youngerlooking or whatever -- but the harder you try to make the people in the pic resemble the original, the better chances you have.

Also of note: Most of these pictures could be considered "adult" in nature by conservative persons. FOR THIS CONTEST and any others we may need to give this rule to, DO NOT SUBMIT PICTURES THAT COULD BE ADULT IN NATURE AND FEATURE CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 18! If anyone in your picture is in an adult situation, pose, or not wearing enough clothing, and appears to be younger than 18, you will be reported to LJ abuse and other authorities. We do not tolerate child exploitation...I may sound like a prick, but hey. Yes, there are children in a couple of these pictures, but at my discretion, they are OK and safe pictures.

This contest will end in one month. So you have an OK amount of time to work on pictures.

  Yes, It's been ages since an update of any kind. It's time for a new contest, I know.

justgoto is our guest Contest Theme Picker this time around, he gets to do this as his prize for winning our first contest. He will be picking an easy theme, finding a set of a few user pictures for us to copy/parody in this theme, and posting an entry detailing the theme contest. Meanwhile, I have got a theme in the more or less "difficult" category for you. I'll wait to announce it and post pictures until justgoto is ready or after he posts his contest.

As usual do please submit at least one entry, no matter how lame or corny you think your image is, and tell your friends and people you think would be interested in this community and its contests to join and enter contests! And if you don't quite understand what this is all about there is nothing to be lost by just replying and asking.

Suggestions about FAQs and stuff to go in our goppeldanger userinfo/bio thing are also welcome, as I wrote the one we have currently kinda fast and late at night.

mood: busy
And the winner is... JUSTGOTO, in the category of "I submitted the only entry."
Your prize is picking the next "easy" theme for a contest. I will pick a difficult one after you pick your easy theme. Feel free to suggest users pictures to copy, with one limitation: You may not pick any of your own user pictures or user pictures you have designed. :)

Aside note, I am moving this week and won't be online for a few days, so there's plenty of time to think up something.

As always, tell your friends about this community! And SUBMIT ENTRIES DARN IT.

You know, I think you should start posting your submissions in the community. That way everyoen can see them as they come up, on their friends list. Anyone who posted to a comment, feel free to repost a community entry. And get your friends to join the contest! This one's still going on, and will be until we get more submissions.

Welcome to the new members. Feel free to ask something or post in the community or make suggestions or whatever. We're anxious for some activity :)
