I’ll put in a picture, you caption it!
Here are the nomination and seconding traditions:
When I have free time, we have a weekly poll of the best captions of the week. (When there is one, I have the link in my sig line.)
To nominate a picture, quote the caption and use a smiley that we have decided means “nominate,” such as :8:, :sg: , :tup: , , , , :usa: :heynow: . To make it easier on me, type in some of the caption next to the smiley. In order to keep the polls at the maximum 26, a nomination needs to be seconded, so if a caption was nominated, quote the caption and put a “seconded” smiley, i.e. :2: , , :toast: , :2pac: , :guitarwo: , :qunq: , :h5: , etc.
In other words, if you want to nominate Joe’s caption, when someone seconds it, the “quote” function only quotes what you said in the nomination; if you only put a nominate smiley, then someone seconds the nomination, the seconded post only quotes the nomination smiley and I can’t tell which caption it is for. Please put in a few words of the quote when you nominate and second so I know which one has been seconded.
OR we can make it easier and simply “like” the photo and a few days later I’ll tally up the most likes for caption of the day.
Here are some caption thread traditions:
Catherine the Great references: Check out her wikipedia page
A common story states that she died as a result of her voracious sexual appetite while attempting sexual intercourse with a stallion - the story holds that the harness broke and she was crushed. This is a completely untrue story.” But we in this thread believe it!
