    New Caption Contest

    I think we should restart the caption contest. The old thread has some awesome captions, but a lot of the links and attachments are no longer good which makes it difficult to admire the humor of the original posts. However, it is a fun game, and I think having a new thread devoted to it might spark interest from new members. Also, with a new movie coming out, we should be provided with new images. We need to have ground rules for when the picture poster does not declare a winner within a timely manner. Maybe by leaving it up to public vote? Anyway, that can be hashed out later. If I get anyone interested in this, they can show interest by posting a picture or by just saying they are interested and I will post a picture.

    Even though I don't post much, I enjoy reading the captions others put up.

    Re: New Caption Contest

    Great Idea!

    Maybe no longer than 7 days after the last response (and as early as they wish) the image poster should pick a winner? And in the case that the image poster is MIA, perhaps after 12 days someone else is welcome to claim boredom and post a new image?

    To get it started, how about This one?

    This is a caption contest game. One person posts a picture, and other members post captions to the picture.

    Traditionally a caption is a phrase beneath a photo that can either be quoting people speaking in the picture or making an observation or clarifying the picture. Here's a traditional example:



    Then on the other hand, there's ...





    So I asked if your question was an entry, because the Balrog could be asking (or yelling in the face of) Gandalf "Where did you get those images?? They're awesome!!"

    It's a contest; if the person who posts the image (me in this case) picks your response as the winner of the caption contest (either for being funny, clever or some other reason) then you get to post your image.

    I'll wait another day or two and pick a winner. There are some good entries so far
