If anyone is nervous about posting a picture of themselves, I will accept a notecard instead in any of the above circumstances, or a notecard in front of your face, or you can also post a pic where your face is edited out, but please pm me if you are doing that so i can verify you're not just cheating :)

yeah i don't care about the size. it's more just about providing a thing that proves you took the picture and it's not just a shopjob or a googlefind.

Pick a thing from a list and do it. there are 4 categories.

Rookie captures equal 1 point each.
Veteran captures equal 2 points each.
Hero captures equal 3 points each.
MEDOF captures equal 5 points each.

so for instance if you take a pic with [A clown (holding your card)], which is in the Hero list, you get 3 points.

general strategies for winning are to do either a few MEDOF or Hero list items for big points, or else lots of Rookie/Vet captures which're easy.

some of the items take some creativity but others can be done inside a minute if you have a camera handy :)

you're underage anyway :fingerwag:

I might do this if I can think of many to do. there is a dearth of clowns, staff members, and graveyards in my vicinity!

Dear Bacon,
In response to your message,
Where havnt I been!?! As with most people, Ive been traveling the vast and wide plane of existence in search of the natural and un-natural wonders and miracles that envelop this wonderful glorious world we dont live in, all while not leaving my dreams and the safety of where every I happen to have fallen asleep.
And I remeber to good times I had here, being almost no one, having some people remember my name and/or avatar, and answering the riddles you posed in the early days of the rec room when your name was still Becoolioman.
But in reality I simple drifted from the game making communities and found myself cleaning campervans all day for a living, what a hellish experience it was/still is... And so I decided to spice up my decaying life by lurking here, there and some-other-where, as well as GModding over a fox5's forums Deadwater Productions.
And alas I am difting back into game making, which is good, because it will distract me from boringly long, off topic posts like this one. Sorry.

Yours Truely,
Kuidon

Sure fine, but im not sure if Ill post lots...
Your pet in a costume :3. (3pt.)
He's dressed as a person, sort of, and he didnt like it, so it should count.
Note, his head is in the head hole, and his front paws are through the arms of the t-shirt. But he wouldnt stand and the shirt is obviously too big, so it dont look right.

◊ Write "HBGames" on a mirror in red (e.g. lipstick), then take a picture of a mirror reflecting that (so it's a reflection-in-a-reflection-in-a-reflection-etc). (5pt.) -- Nice!
◊ The words "HBGames" or "I <3 Venetia" written somewhere on your body. (skin ... nothing risque please) (2pt.)

K.matt, Venetia just wants you to copy and paste the name and point value of the picture you are also posting from the list on the first post. Like I have done. This is so she doesnt have to look up how much you are earning for every picture herself.

EDIT - Ok, why is Ven's name appearing differently? Im gona have to search the forum for some obscure answer arent I...?
