I had an Idea.....

how would people feel if we had a reveal day where for 24 hours we change our avatar to an image of ourselves.

I would love to see some real pictures of my new friends, even if only for 24 hours.

I thought of setting it for say a months time or 3 weeks or something to give the thread most coverage of people who may want to join in.

what do people think?
or any other ideas on this vein?

And why on the avatars often (or always) people put pictures that don't represent them.

I want to give the idea time to get out there, and get some feedback.... hope everyone likes it.

People seem for the whole to choose an avatar to represent how they feel, i know i do... i was recently playing poker and i had my avatar up and i was told by some bloke i was ugly, i got upset and changed it to a duck, so now i have the nick name of Duckie on the site, which is ok as my Mam used to call me Ducks...

I was on another site where you could only be a member if you had an avatar of yourself up, it couldnt be of anything else or anyone else, as far as they knew.

I also think is a great idea, but maybe people are afraid of exposure or something.
Like alter ego or something.

Or maybe because people don't visit the Suggestion's page often. I had the same issue once.

Yes. The Mystery Country and the Brainoff of The Day are very popular around. Post a link there. I do that for the Tournaments. Probably half of the people signed learn how to sign by the info I put in the daily brainoffs.

Stu how do you track back old avatars previously used? that is interesting... not that i think i ever need to use it, and how can you delete them perminatly? ok i cant spell that, i spelt it as i say it!!!! obviously WRONG!!!!!!!!!

sorry just re read what you said....
i got you wrong....
i think the disadvantage of adding your photos here is 2 fold

1. a lot of people do not know HTML and therefore wont be able to do it
2. and other will not know how to add or upload a photo from their HD rather then from a photo that is held online

Yes. It's called Dutch Wonderland, because it's in Lancater, PA, the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country. A lot of Amish people live in Lancaster County. They're not really Dutch; their Deutsch, but the Americans corrupted the word to Dutch. So they are really from Germany, or more properly, the Holy Roman Empire at the time.

That's a great and interesting story.

A got once joke about the County.
I though about O.C. that was Orange Club. And on one forum I kept saying Orange Club, Orange Club (cause the translation of the O.C. was something like a club in Macedonia), and then someone slaps the fact into my face - Hey! It's Orange County. I was so ashamed back then.

That's a great page. Pictures Via World. Pictures from different people around the World.

Come on people load up your best shots:
You can do this like this:
Upload your pictures on www.flickr.com
If you have Yahoo! E-mail there's no need of signing up. Just log in with your Yahoo! E-mail profile.

Then put them here like this:

< img src = place the image location here>

For example this is what a code is: http://www.dayinscience.unsw.edu.au/Images/wwd_world2.jpg

Right-click on the picture - Copy Image Location, and paste it here.

That should do it.

My latest profile picture --- Shot in Netherlands, on my weeks stay there, because of the European Junior Championship. That was my best week of my life.

The Netherlands is such a great country. The country of tulips.

And the people's mentality, the cleanness, the hospitality, everything was so great. And the Airport in Amsterdam --- HUGE. I almost lost myself there. It's Enormous.

Great memories from Holland. That was last year when I got 16 years in July - so 16 years and 10 months. Now I'm 18 years and 13 days old.

Well that studio isn't really local...I mean Philadelphia is one of the bigger cities so it makes sense our studio would be like that (for the US at least). The really small town stations are a bit less crazy-like.....and our school studio looks like a 1970's nightmare :-) I love it more than air.

Sounds like your experience is mainly live broadcast - or at least live switching and/or broadcast. It's real easy to get pigeonholed, so get as much experience doing everything you can - try interning at Banyan and see what you think of that kind of production. If you want to get in to film, this is a good time to start getting that experience. It's similar to TV, but completely different. Production and post-production. Anyway. More unsolicited advice.

Unsolicited advice is the best advice--sometimes people don't know what advice to ask for.

But yes, you're right. Mainly live, although I do do editting work but mainly for our news programs. Also, I've done some dramatic editing and such because we have certain projects for our Telecomm class. Our last one was a chase scene which I did with my partner who really was no help at all although I let him think he was....Anyway, I edited that together, plus figured out how to shoot scenes and stuff. It was fun.

Wow. Due to different time zones I missed to interfere in a Stupendous discussion. Great conversation you had last night.

That's stew from Scratch looks awful. Ughh. Really nasty. Who eats that in front of the computer. Who eat that anyway. :)

I will suggest to you chicken and rise. Great combination. Healthier and less messy than the stew.

Then, Possum you forgot that I live in Veles, so that's additional 50 km (and if it's counted from the airport - then just 25 km). The airport is closer to Veles, than to Skopje. We also got another airport in Ohrid.

Then, cute picture of your daughter Possum.

And Sammi, do you have any quizzes in your TV. You should do some. If you like I will suggest some concepts for you.

I always wanted to work in behind the scenes TV Studio, for quiz making, or news editing, but I don't have to chance for that. There aren't many Televisions here, and not practical education. Everything is in theory. Nothing practical.

Then, great picture Stu. Is that on a wedding or some kind of anniversary?

I think that's it.

You can do that Lippi like this:
Upload your pictures on www.flickr.com or other web-site.
If you have Yahoo! E-mail there's no need of signing up. Just log in with your Yahoo! E-mail profile.

Then put them here like this:

< img src = place the image location here>

* there's only space between img and src. I put spaces there, cause if not that will recognize some picture. So only space between img and src.

For example this is what a code is: http://www.dayinscience.unsw.edu.au/Images/wwd_world2.jpg

Right-click on the picture - Copy Image Location, and paste it here. This works for Firefox. If you have Internet Explorer copy it from the adress bar.

That should do it Lippi.

Remember to re-size the pics if they are too big. after the IMG SRC=(web link), you can put height="100" width="150", for example. Just remember to keep the height and width proportionate to the original proportions of the picture; otherwise it will distort the image. For example:

Ugh, possum, she looks nothing like me. She loks like my dad, while I look like my momma. Yuck..... Lol. I jest, but really I don't think we look anything alike. Plus we are, as I said, polar opposites in other ways:

1) I can spell, while for he "Spelling's not imoprtant."
2) She likes pop while I like "that emo rock crap"
3) She likes to run while I'm "a lazy bum"
4) She is friend with all girls, while I hang out with mostly guys
5) I like to read any kind of book at anytime, anywhere while she "only reads books where the main character can wake up and watch TV" aka, no classic lit or science fiction or anything other than chick lit (although I am sure there are other books other than chick lit she could read, that's just what I always see her reading...)
6) She always does her homework, while I'm good at tests
7) She is annoying while I am perfectly tolerable.

Sammi, I still think you look a lot like your sister, especially in the pic from Ocean City. Now, if you want to see two siblings who look NOTHING alike, take a look at me and my brother. These pics are from the mid 90's. My brother was 32 in the top pic; I was 34 in the bottom pic with my niece and her cousin. My brother is only 14 months older than me.

I got confused, today there was a long day at school. Lots of study. There were 7 classes. Today we have only 7, other days we have 6 or 5 classes. Each class is 40 minutes. And we have big rest - 20 minutes (so that we can buy food from the surrounding shops or bakeries) - we don't have school cafeteria around.

Cheers.

God Cowell would you ever just get lost. you have already proven yourself to be a stalker and someone very sad, for other people reading this i shall explain, Cowell is probably better known to you as Jonesbr, she stalks Dpf as you see by her post, he ignores her so she turns up where he works, the sad woman is obsessed.

She is now trying to delete one of her many profiles, which last week she denied having, Phil just delete them both, DPF nor i want you stalking us any more. incase it hasnt got through to your head.... he is not interested in you. and where we are getting married is none of your business as your not invited. ok.

Oh and Phil dont worry i know how to post photos in here i can easily post yours, i have a few at home to choose from, you have them plastered all over singles sites.

Firstly, the photo must be published somewhere on the web. You can publish the pictures on Flickr or some other place.

Then put them here like this:

< img src = place the image location here> (only space between img and src)

For example this is what a code is: http://www.dayinscience.unsw.edu.au/Images/wwd_world2.jpg

Right-click on the picture - Copy Image Location, and paste it here.

That should do it Wabzy.

Josie Jump, Possum, and kristian, it is actually me. My hair is perhaps 10 inches longer now but that is me and I am *choke*59*. Didn't have to tell you but why not? As Popeye would say, I yam what I yam! I am glad you like the picture and thank you all for being so sweet about your remarks. I think I will always look like a baby! I hope so anyway!

Well, I have a cable modem, which it says that is about 5Mbps (but it is a big fat lie), it's never that fast. And sometimes it is quick, sometimes I can replace it with a turtle in fact.

Just to respond to two points:

  • As the images are hosted elsewhere (e.g. Flickr) then they won't be stored on Factacular.com, so server space isn't an issue.
  • Reducing the visual size of images using the width/height parameters in the img tag won't actually reduce the file size of the images. To do that, the image dimensions need to be reduced before uploading to Flickr etc.

It definitely takes a while longer for the content of this page to load as images of varying sizes are being downloaded from lots of different sites. For some, your browser will cache (store copies of) images you have already viewed, thus speeding up the page loading times.

To put it another (maybe incorrect) way: what's slowing you down is your browser gathering all of these pictures. If you are clearing your temp files frequently, you might have to download these every time you load the page.

Doesn't take me long at home, but it took forever here at work since this is the first time I've viewed the page here.

We will call Wabzy to come down from Long Island and meet them at 30th Street Station, and proceed from there. Kev is in the UK, so he might not make it.

Well, I haven't told you yet - but me and Radmila decided to stay just friends. (i thought of putting a Song Collection - Break Up's - but this wasn't a break-up - we just stayed friends). She's said that The School is FIRST on her list. And she's such a nerd. She just studies. And I am better student than her - and I don't spend all day with the book. There's a thing called PERCEPTION - to be able to remember stuff just as your hear them. I stay focus on class - and learn all the things at school - at home just minor stuff to do - homework, practice for test.

I was like: "What? School over me. I think better to stay just friends."

Ahh the old "take the padding off" routine.

Apart from the fact that it completely ignores how body armour and padding is creeping into rugby, it also fails to take into account that the hits in American Football are far more violent than in rugby. You'd get a red card in no time in rugby for repeatedly shoulder barging your opponents.

There are plenty of examples of career ending injuries in American Football as it is. Take off the padding without changing the rules and you'd get life-threatening ones.

Lol, K. It's fish, but you have the wrong word for "see" sea like an ocean is "sea".

Unless the rules are the same, then rugby does not equal football. I'm not all that learned on rugby but I dobn't think what I've seen loks anything like football. Now baseball and softball (which is I assume more like rounders because it's the girl version) are similar because most of the rules/field/strategy/positions are the same.

You know what, K? My next mix CD will be songs for a breakup. Just for you darling! I've made a few of those CDs....so I think I'll pull some of the songs off all of them and put that together.

By the way, K, she SHOULD pick school over you! No offense, but education is more important than boys. Speakin g as a nerd, I believe that being a nerd has nothing to do with it. You two can always pick it back up later but school has to be in the present. Next time you see her twell her I said she's a smart girl ;-)

Yeah, "sea" typing mistake.

The problem is that she is 11th grade in Economic High School, and I'm 12th Grade in Gymnasium. She only has economic subjects. So scooping for studying after school will not work. And plus we are different shifts. Yeah, education should be in first place, but the way she said it, it sounded like Education til Grave. Or it sounded like Education, Education and just Education.

I replied: "Education can't make the man happy and pleased ALL THE TIME." - is that right?

mmm lasted while i slept!

you see my kids have no school today so my delightful daughter thought she could stay out weekend hours without consulting me, so she thought coming in at 10pm was ok, i obviously didn't as i have work and cant sleep or go to bed until she is safely home, so i decided to ground her for each minute she was late after 10pm, she came home at 10.06...

but as she has cleaned the house cooked dinner, i let her off as it wasnt a direct disobedience it was a misunderstanding.

The necklaces are 'spirit beads' they are the school's colors (blue and white) . We bought them to wear on spirit day and the money from them goes to one of the school's clubs. The shirt is an american football jersey that our class of 2009 sold for spirit day. We could buy them and then the whole class would match. They are awesome, it has my name on the back and it makes me look athletic. ;-)
