    Description:Photographs that conjure up a feeling of solitude.

    as a matter of courtesy > how “done” is it to have another post one’s images on their behalf?

    at the moment I’m working nights, so I’m always too damn late to the party (it’s 1.30 am here now, and I won’t be getting up until around 10.45).

    If acceptable, any volunteers?

    It usually isn’t a problem. I know others have done it before.

    What is your fark name and the URLs of the images you want posted and I will put them up for you?

    hip, thanks!

    unsurprisingly the fark name is Uranus, and I have only the one this week:

    Just to be totally clear, OBO (On Behalf Of) posting is welcomed around here as an occasional solution when someone has an emergency or just can’t be around for that particular contest. It isn’t something that we can do for you every week as a regular thing. The reason for this is that the FSM automatically pulls the information from each contest and logs it. This week, when swampa posts your pics, the votes for them will initially be counted as his. Once the contest is over, schnee (site admin) will have to go in and manually change the information for those votes. It’s not exactly a streamlined process.

    So yes, it’s no problem to for swampa to post your pictures tonight, but this isn’t a permanent solution to your scheduling issues if you’re planning on doing this every week. I know that sucks and I’m sorry about that. :/

    On the off-chance you didn’t know, the Farktography Statistics Manager (aka FSM) is a little site that is inspired by the Fark Honor Role and the Fark Photoshop Monitor. The FSM tracks Farktography contests, accumulates votes, calculates averages and even gives people their own portfolio.

    It needs a little nudging to keep OBO posts correct. Just search the Farktography.net forum (you’re reading it now) for “OBO” and you’ll see how to make sure you get your votes correctly counted.

    A belated welcome back, by the way, Uranus.

    I was going to be good and PM you with the timestamp of the photo when it is added, but is there a better way to give you the details so you don’t have to spend as much time messing around fixing it up? (not that I wouldn’t be happy with extra votes :P)

    heh….thanks swampa!

    am i being overly critical here, or is there a disappointing sameness to this week’s entries? I was hoping for so much more.

    Not that there aren’t any brilliant shots – there’s an abundance- but they seem to hit closer to desolation,isolation and alienation than solitude….

    Here’s what I need for OBO’ing the FSM:

    I’ll need this information:

    a) Poster
    b) Entry Timestamp (in 24 hour format)
    c) Actual Farktographer

    all in a comma-separated list, and only for entries that show up on the Fark.com “View Voting Results” page. For example:

    veruca,2006-06-21 20:26:41,monkeybort

    tells me that veruca posted on behalf of monkeybort at that time.

    swampa, I already got your PM; don’t worry about re-PM’ing me with the “correct” format.

    This week’s theme was more open to interpretation than some themes, and especially with a word like “solitude”, you get people’s connotations and interpretations wrapped up in things even if it isn’t the same as the dictionary definition.

    Never even or odd’s entry from 12:15:03 AM is a repeat from the path less taken contest. I made a post in the comments thread about it a couple hours ago but im not sure anyone noticed or what else to do when people post repeats.
