Ladies and Gents, Ex Islers of All Stripes!  The time has come, once again, for Ex Isle Picture Day!

This Annual Event occurs each year on the 1st Wednesday of the New Year, and so, will be on January 2, 2008.  

What is it? Ex Isle's own holiday closing out the Hanukkah/Christmas/New Years/Picture Day cycle.

When? January 2, 2008 January 8, 2008

How do I celebrate? Beginning at 12:01 A.M. of January 2, 2008, and without regard to time zones, post your picture, in place of your avatar.  

That's right. A real picture of yourself.  The idea is for us to spend the day "talking face-to-face."  

It only happens once a year, and there are board members who would be happy to help you crop your picture or otherwise edit it for safety concerns, so dig through your digital images, or scan a portrait, and let's finally "meet!"

Are there any rules? YES.  The picture has to be a recent picture of you.  And - we ask everyone, but especially minors, to take notice of some of the safety precautons posted here: http://www.exisle.ne...&...st&p=497820


(Wonder if we can get a header for the day??)

I'll try. I have one in the avatar section, but it takes so long to download I can't find it anymore.

Will you be out of town? :(   If so, have a happy and safe trip!  

Maybe we can poll for another date?

My aunt is staying with us that week. I think I've had family over, or I've been visiting family, every year we've had Picture Day. (Wow, how many years has that been?) The first week of January never works out for me. :(

Polling for another date sounds like a great idea to me. :) Honestly, I do wish we could have the event twice a year. People always leave their real pictures up for a few days afterward, and it's so sad when they're all gone.

Hermione: "What's your problem Harry?"
Harry: "My parents are dead, my life sucks, I can't hold down a girlfriend, and I'm surrounded by f*ck*ng goblins and sh*t all the time. I mean what the f*ck?"
Ron: "But it's magic Harry. The goblins are magical!" --'Wizard Angst', Potter Puppet Pals

Me: "It's just a matter of looking past [McKay's] arrogant exterior to see his warm, fuzzy, probably angst-filled interior."
Hawkeye: "You harperchondriac girls think everyone has an angst filled interior."

So - who's joining in???  It's only fun if a bunch of us participate...

Also, in the poll thread is a suggestion to make Picture Day a 2-day event.  Thoughts?

If I'm online I'll join in, I should have a VERY recent picture since I'm getting a digital camera for christmas.

It sounds like lots of fun.

As ever, I'll join!  I love watching photographs of people start showing up as avatars slowly but surely over the course of the day :)

It will not last the night;

Never been much on Avatars. I think with my current title for a avatar I would likely consider Greg House for me.

But if you needed a small one for the picture page by all means.

Oh!  Well - no the idea is that on Picture Day (which is now going to be a two -day event, and may also happen again in the summer!), we all switch our avatars to pictures of ourselves - so that we can talk face to face.  It's not just a post your picture thread - it's actually being yourself online for a couple of days.

Every time I see a political thread I fondle myself just a little bit.............

'I honestly cannot justify that. You see, advertising isn't an art. Appealing to the English? Use someone from Hollyoaks and diss United. Scots? Talk about how evil Thatcher was. SNP is awesome etc. Americans? Well they be thick as sh*t so short sentences and shiny things and some Jesus helps too.. French and Germans? Talk about the war. Irish? f*ck that we can't sell sh*t in Ireland. That's frankly how it all works. So what I'm trying to say is that I'm happy you're dumping all this cash into advertising... I honestly don't see what you want me to do with it.  And also, that blip in the records in June was me buying monitors.-- never ask me to be 'brutally honest' about a budget.

You of course realise that anything you post here is comprised of ASCII characters? Each character is 7 bits with a parity bit making 8... I guess that's fairly meaningless to you which is actually the point. At most your sentence is a few kilobytes and considering I'm doing a file transfer of over a billion bytes right now those bytes making up your words are invisible with their insignificance, which is exact what I think of your post. Insignificant.
