Lifted shamelessly from Mary's hard work in the old thread

From our fearless leader, ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' 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

' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' 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."

I get to make the second post! Yippee!

Um.

third times the charm!

entered into night shot today; i have no hopes of a ribbon :p

hey, i just spent 10 minutes typing a fabulous introduction to this place, and the old thread is locked already! argh!

ok, i'll try again.

after much time and effort, and much architectural pondering, i would like to welcome everyone to the new Team Suck Clubhouse.

please note the many comfy chairs, large tables and pleasing decor. the wall of large, north facing windows spill light into the room. we also come equipped with 50 top of the line computers (both apple and pc) with PS3, many available plugins, wide screen lcd monitors, wacom tablets and 300 terrabyte storage for each. there are 10 studio spaces, with a full lighting set up, large windows, with scrims, skylights, a variety of seamless backdrops, and a selection of useful furniture. there is also a large selection of interesting objects for props or still lifes.

the club house is set in an area of stunning natural beauty, with formations ranging from fjords, through hot pools, to windswept desserts and lush forests, from gentle brooks to pounding surf. nearby there is a wildlife park, featuring free range animals of all continents. it is also minutes from the gritty underbelly of the big city. beside the clubhouse is our old one, now beautifully dilapidated, with peeling paint, dark and smutty windows, weathered boards, and a general air of desolation, perfect for those moody portraits.

there is a free daycare on site, staffed by qualified early childhood educators.

there is a fine restaurant serving simple yet excellent foods, at 1920s prices. kosher, halal, vegetarian and vegan diets are all catered for. the desert menu is pages long.

o, and there's a free bar.

(mr. rourke voice) welcome, welcome to fantasy studio...

04/10/2007 11:32:40 PM · #6
Hello all.

I'd like to at this point state that I have unbending faith that the fine members of Team Suck will rally around each other with a sense of decency and compassion and work out whatever difficulties have arisen that have temporarily put one of us off a square.

We all know that the parties involved are both reasonable, sensible adults and that there is a miscommunication and/or misunderstanding as to what's at issue here.

I know Mary is one of the finest of the Team Suck crew.......level and hardworking, and so are the SC members that are involved in this thread as I've had personal dealings with all present.

So what can we do to make this come out nice and perhaps do some housekeeping at the same time?

I heard mention that there are shots that are undergoing scrutiny and are being asked to relocate.

How and what can we as Team Suck members do to help DPC, and Mary, in any way?

Ask away and I'm there.

Team?

Wow, Christian. I can actually see it in my head.

But one question ...

Would those windows be our light source for nudes?

I think it's best for everyone concerned if I keep my clothing on.

That may be a good idea... in the old thread they got changed out after each challenge. With a "results" Team Suck thread, we could just add the thumbs after each challenge and the old ones would still be there. What sayest other Suckees?
04/11/2007 12:02:16 AM · #21
Wow, I thought I'd be the only one up right now. I'm planning on PM'ing Mary to see how she is doing - I got the impression from the nudity thread that maybe she has worked it out? But I'm not sure - I've been out pretty much all evening.

BTW - very well said about support, Jeb.
04/11/2007 12:02:19 AM · #22
I'll look up the entries from the most recently closed challenges and start a new thread.

I can't believe I'm actually waiting for a vote on my night shot. It is kind of sucky, too. I predict...a 4 for my first vote.

...and I wasn't far off! A 5!
