Here's the breakdown of how it's being done on the darkside....
- Model - Model - Actress - Actress - Athlete - Musician - Skank (I would say any adult entertainer/model/actress fits the bill here. Any girl famous solely for her willingness to take her clothes off.) - 40+ (MILF/Cougar/whatever you want to call that) - Legend/retro (past chick living or dead, at her peak) - Misc - Misc - Misc
I think the "Skank" category needs a little more description though, or at least refining. 99% of main stream actresses would not qualify. Halle Berry has taken her gear off in several films, however she would not qualify for the skank category.
Anyway there's a 24 hour clock between picks and after the draft judges and Cafe members vote for the best team. Last year members just voted, I'm still not 100% sure what the judges are for this year, I guess maybe to make executive decisions about eligibility or to make picks for people should they be away from the Cafe. That's about the gist of it.
model model movies movies tv music milf legend ( i like it, this will be an interesting category. Can't wait to hear from the 18 y/o's... and no Britney is not a legend) sports (does not have to be athlete) flex flex (and no, neither means you have to draft a gymnast but not a bad idea)
lots of possibilities for the last 2 categories or for that matter to change anything. I like girl next door but not sure how to enforce that.
lots of stuff been thrown out there.. tattoo, porn, pierced etc...
Draft a chick, post a minimum of 2 pics (don't push to many limits) and name the category you are placing her in. Judges will make sure it is all kosher. Trading is allowed.
I have to guess that this is current only (except possible legend category) and someone will have to tell me what to do for images. Where to find, how to host etc...
So basically 3 actresses? Or does one of them have to be a TV actress only? That's going to be tough since most actresses work in both areas, off the top of my head I can't think of any actress that's only been on TV.
"Sports (does not have to be an athlete)" What does that mean? Like sports commentators too and news casters too?
"MILF" should be more clearly defined. Is this really just any woman who has had a child?
"Legend" What's the definition? Is it still "Superbabes well past their prime, alive or dead?"
Images are found by whatever means are known to the drafter, Google is a good place to start, but there are celeb photo sites out there where pics can be found.
As far as how to host images, there are a couple different ways. First and foremost NEVER hotlink. For those who don't know, hotlinking is simply copying and pasting and image url from the site it's found at. In doing so you steal bandwidth from whatever site you link from. But that's not the bad part, the bad part is that many sites frown on it...big time. Some frown on it so much that when they discover that someone has hotlinked they will replace the image linked to with something disgusting. Like say you've hotlinked to an image of Britney with your pick, the site you hotlinked to may replace the image with a giant penis. Not something you want posted here at the Cafe, so don't hotlink.
Okay so first pick a host site and create an account, Imageshack and Photobucket are the best I think. Personally I prefer Photbucket for general image hosting. Then you host your images in one of two ways. First, the easiest way, you can save the images to your machine and upload them that way. It's fool proof, the only problem is that you're using up space on your machine and have to go through and delete the images once they are uploaded to the host site. It's just an extra step, like saving the images to save the images, and then you have to spend time cleaning the pics off your machine. The 2nd and better way, although a little more difficult to understand, is to upload directly from the web. When you find an image you left...or right click...I forget what it is for PC's...anyway you want to view properties or image info. What you are looking for is the "location" url. Copy the url and then go to the host site, depending on the site the way you upload may be a little different. At Photbucket you have to click the "More Upload Tools" tab and then "From the web" then just paste the code and upload. At Imageshack there is a little "url" bubble you click in the upload area. Once the image is uploaded at either site you just copy a code to post here, I'd recommend using the "clickable thumbnail" code. At Photobucket you have to click, the "link options" under the photo to find the "Clickable thumbnail" code. At Imageshack, right after you've uploaded, select the code for "Forum Thumbnail" or if you're browsing an album there's a little bubble to the right of each image with "Share it" that you click, then select the thumbnail size for forums. Then you just paste the code here...
