    Images that would make great Holiday cards. Please note: For this week’s theme, you may add text to your images if you wish, though it is not required. All other Farktography rules apply, however.

    It’s an odd question, but can the word ‘whore’ be used on a greeting card, or is that NSFF/W?

    Nah it’s fine. People say “shut your whore mouth” in Fark comments pretty often. Basically any words are fair game except those that are subject to the Fark filters. (e.g. if you type it in and it get changed like “shiat”, “fark”, “coont” when you post)

    Forgive me for asking this.

    I am new(er) to Farktography. Due to restrictions I have at home, I am not going to be able to use an actual camera for this contest, I will have to use my cell phone camera.

    One of the shots I will take, and probably use is a picture of a Nativity Scene. I know farkers are either very PRO or very ANTI religion. Would ANYONE have a big problem with me using that…considering it IS what the season is about?

    /Not overly religous.

    geom_00, cell phone cameras are fine as long as you’re still the photographer.

    I’m not the official voice around here, but I’d support your posting of a nativity scene, regardless of my religious leanings. IMHO, if anyone had a problem with it, it would be exactly that – their problem, not yours.

    geom_00 I support your right to post something religious as well, whether I share your faith or not. We should practice tolerance, not just talk it.

    Now when *I* post something religious, it always ends up like this:

    I also have no problems with religious themed pictures. Tolerance is a good thing.

    I’m a stone atheist, but I will defend to my last breath you posting a Nativity scene in a Christmas theme thread. Fark ’em if they can’t take it.

    For any theme I’d say post whatever you want to post as long as it meets the fark TOS. That’s the great thing about photography as a hobby – just about anything is (or should be) fair game.

    In my mind, some fairly intelligent person once said art intends to stir emotion. Pissing people off is a pretty obvious stir of emotion if you ask me.

    Thank you all! I just didn’t want to turn a farktography thread into a flame war 😀

    Farktography has survived me so you’d have to try pretty hard to damage it.

    geom_00: Typically, posts that are bitching about photos that otherwise follows Fark TOS and Farktography rules are deleted. Given that most of the holidays this time of year have at least religious origins even if they aren’t currently religious to all people, it stands to reason that there will be photos of a religious nature entered. If someone has a problem with that, they can piss up a rope. We’ve actually had religion/spirituality themes on more than one occasion, and they’ve been well received, so I don’t think you have anything to worry about.
