Shit shit shit…

April 10, 2008

God fucking dammit… I missed Photohunt tonight. What an awesome host I am :\

I’ve had to play some serious catch up at school because of my surgery, so I apologize to everyone who participates in Photohunt– I was consumed in homework! We will resume next week, hopefully with no memory snags on my end… until then, keep snapping, and I look forward to seeing you all again real soon!

P.S. In light of my gall bladder removal, I would like to thank everyone for their support and well wishes– the road to recovery would be considerably lamer if I didn’t have so many friendly comments to keep me afloat! 🙂


Photohunt- 05March08

March 6, 2008

Sure sure, this blog is a day late… but you shouldn’t be too surprised by that 😀

This week’s Photohunt was so much fun! Welcome Doobie (currently the VAA’s only Photohunt moderator) chose Tesla City as this week’s theme location, which is packed full of interesting places to explore, and we nearly filled up all 15 entry boards!

Since Welcome Doobie and I alternate turns between holding down the fort and accompanying the Photohunters to the hunting grounds, I thought I would take a few pictures of my own to pass the time:

They’re not nearly as good as what the entrants came up with, but they were certainly fun to take! If you’d like to see the this week’s entries (as well as archives of all of the contests up to this point), be sure to drop by the Photohunt Gallery to have a look-see!


Photohunt comeback a success!

February 28, 2008


Those of you who know me will know that I measure success very loosely when it comes to events like this– if we get a small handful of people (say, three or four) and facilitate their ability to network and share knowledge with each other, then whatever event it is will have been a huge success in my mind.

Well, tonight’s Photohunt, our first that we opened to the public, successfully attracted  a total of fourteen people, contestants and spectators alike! And the snapshots that were taken were excellent, to boot!

You should totally check out the winners for this and last week’s Photohunt matches. Coming soon: a Photohunt gallery expansion to accomodate winners and Moderator picks. Stay tuned!


PhotoHunt is back!

February 17, 2008

Very few people out there will remember my efforts to begin the PhotoHunt a little less than a year ago… the result was a bit of an unorganized and discouraging mess, but I’m glad to say that I’ve got my shit together this time around!

With the help of Dale Innis and Welcome Doobie, the Virtual Artist Alliance will be able to hold the PhotoHunt event with very few, if any hitches this time. Dale has created a submission/voting system which is simple enough for nearly anyone to understand, so the game won’t be limited to people who are fluent with Second Life functions. Welcome built most of the new gallery which will host the matches and designed the incredibly sexy Photohunt logotype that you see in the snapshot above.

Our first trial run will be taking place on Sunday, February 17th and 6PM SLT (tomorrow!) and will be limited exclusively to VAA members– this way I can get bug testing and feedback in a controlled environment. I can’t wait to see how this turns out! After that, assuming the trial run goes well, I’ll be opening up the event to anyone and everyone willing to participate!
