From our fearless leader, 21.gif posthumous:

"This thread belongs to Team Suck, a ragtag group of militia... um... photographers who compatriate more than compete, more interested in winging than winning, in love than lustre.

We don't let a low score get in the way of a dream!

As our seditious philosophy gained ground, our ranks grew, until we became more than just a team. We became a league of teams in wholesome if not entirely serious competition with each other. And that's the way we all became Team Suck.

This thread is for suckers to commiserate and compete. It can also be used for anyone with questions or comments about the Suck lifestyle. If you do wish to join us, we ask that you participate at DPC for a while to see if sucking really is your style, and we ask that you fulfill whatever half-brained initiation we come up with at that moment."

Join us at our new website dedicated to the suck way of life. Visitors are always welcome; stop by for a cuppa coffee, spot of tea, keg of beer, or photoshop confusion.

Nominate OOBIE or YAPPIE!

Below is the current membership of League of Suck:

Team Suck Policy Statement

21.gif posthumous quote:

"I don't make these very often. In fact, I might never make these, but this is a pretty fundamental policy that I'm talking about, and it's a necessary one for our survival in DPC. It has to do with voting practices. Obviously, we are not responsible for the voting practices of our members, but to go further I'd like to suggest some guidelines for how Team Suckers vote:

- We do not share photos with each other and then vote on them.
- We do not vote higher on images just because we think they were made by a member of Team Suck.
- We do not encourage each other to vote higher for certain types or styles of images. We pride ourselves on our variety of tastes and styles.
- We do not encourage any particular voting method, though we might frown at people with 3.67 voting averages and make grumbling noises.
- The only way we might influence voting is indirectly, by enriching everyone's tastes and opening their minds to what can be beautiful, and this sort of discussion is never about an identifiable picture in a current challenge."

unless of course you put your camera next to the chips and use the remote!

Hey 21_F.gif Kashi I know you didn't get the best comments from everyone on it, but I was quite taken with your photo of the yellow balloon. In fact, it appeals to me a lot in its simplicity and perfect exposure. Just wanted to let you know.

Good heavens, a beachhouse! Where did we get the money?

And who tracked sand into the foyer? We still don't have a vacuum cleaner...

Ooh, new place! How exciting. I like the fresh air and the crashing of the waves :)

Here's some scenery to match:

Aw shucks, thanks :blush:

Here, let me put up a balloon to brighten this place up a little.
No point to it - just a single yellow balloon - but I like it.

Since I can't quote from the old thread (new place has a lovely sea breeze smell to it by the way), Don - I never intend to be unkind! Glad you found it funny, though.
