    Sorry, Deadline? off course..

    @oz1gyq: in 24 hours.

  4. oz1gyq

    The problem is that you never timestamp these announcements, so 24 hours from "now" can be anything really..

    800 px ?!?! but why?? is 768px so bad..?

    Cool! Sure the previous Supersampler microsite looks a bit old... needs to be refreshed! :)) The themes are almost all what a supersampler can do, right? 24hours as usual? No limited uploads? You will have a lot of submissions......!! :)))
    I'll upload mine now! ;))

  7. kazarareta

    @vicuna: yup! no limits this time since we need really good shots for a good refresh. and yep, the themes are the ss functions.
    @oz1gyq: yeah, everyone's working very hard on everyone's ideas it at the office!
    @tom: we need bigger ones for a safety margin with the shots since the chosen shots will be flying all around the site :)

    I just uploaded my shots and after the 10th shot it was written "Upload limit exceeded"..... thought there was no limit, I have 10 more to upload....?????

  9. kazarareta

    FYI BTW, the gallery is not visible on the post for the moment since we're going to filter out wrong submissions for this one :)

  10. kazarareta

    @vicuna: let me check that

  11. mephisto19
    mephisto19 ·

    same for me: error: upload limit exceeded

  12. kazarareta
    kazarareta ·

    did you guys re-try it out?

  13. vicuna
    vicuna ·

    seems to be ok, the upload button is there again! :))

    It is nice to see one of my images used to announce a rumble. Thanks Lomography!

  15. mephisto19
    mephisto19 ·

    okay... it is working, but you can only upload a maximum of 10 shots per upload...

  16. aldo_mariano

    No limit? Wow great!

  17. kazarareta

    @mephisto19: please try restarting or clearing your cache, it seems to be working fine :)

  18. oz1gyq
    oz1gyq ·

    @kazarareta: Oh well, my humble wish was that you somewhere in the text could write something like "time is now xx:xx" or maybe write the time along with the date on the front page, like you do with the news. You can probably see when the blog was sent out in your system, but we can't, so it not always so easy to see when the 24 hours are up.
    Anyway, I will just keep on missing deadlines as usual, so just forget about it.

  19. kazarareta

    @oz1gyq: thank you for your suggestion! For now I hope this will be fine for everybody - the rumble started at 14:16 Vienna time.

    uploaded some, is there a way to cancel an upload or to delete an image?

  21. mephisto19
    mephisto19 ·

    now it is working... no limit... that's cool....

  22. vicuna
    vicuna ·

    My 10 shots (under this "vicuna" account, because I uploaded the 10 others under the "doubleswithvicuna" account...) aren't in the gallery... but at the bottom of the page are in the "your uploaded images... should I re-submit them or is it ok?

  23. vicuna
    vicuna ·

    No, it's ok, they just appeared in the gallery! Sorry ;))

    Hello Hello

    Great! A new "round-the-clock-challenge"!! ;)
    So, i have just one question in mind: what about the Multi-Lens Rumble and Book?? I'm not even sure there was a book about that rumble because it seems to me it's quite an old project now but i think there was one indeed...hmm...can't really remember...Anyway, any news?
    Thanks a lot in advance! :)


  25. mephisto19
    mephisto19 ·

    there IS a limit... now i can only go on uploading single images.... why?

  26. tom_ashor_bhaan
    tom_ashor_bhaan ·

    ufff ufff, i was resizing for 2 hours. 16 pictures succesfully uploaded ;-)

  27. melanie_skriabine
    melanie_skriabine ·

    Another question: will the photos be credited because i just can't find any name on the supersampler website!....That's really too bad because you know, it's nice to know whose shot it is and then be able to visit some lomohomes and get to know more about the lomographer behind the pics, don't you think so?! ;)

    @ melanie_skriabine
    all images on the supersampler website by LSI (95-100%, as i just don´t know 2 or 3 shots but guess they are from the NY office)

  29. mandi
    mandi ·

    ...of course on the current site. i don´t know about the upcoming one. maybe the credits are planned as it should be easier to include them now. but this is web-guys business of which i have no idea!!

  30. melanie_skriabine
    melanie_skriabine ·

    Hey Mandi, thanks for your answer! :)
    So, does it mean the people from the NY office do not have lomohomes? or may be they are secret agents and want to stay anonymous! haha ;)
    Well, that would be nice to discover who the NY team is anyway, i mean through their lomohomes, when they have one...Yeah, i know, curiosity :) but i just enjoy discovering new personalities, that's all ;)
    Well, new supersampler website = all lomographers' shots credited? COOL!! ;D We'll have some lomohomes to (re)discover and visit then...for all the "curious lomographers" like meeeee... :)

  33. anarchy

    Okay, 4 images uploaded... don't have that many SS-shots...

    Will there be a function soon enabling us to submit images directly from our lomohome galleries?

  34. lomodirk
    lomodirk ·

    Yeah, supersampler-time!
    When will come the supersampler with flash?
    Ok, upload is done :)

  35. graefin

    whoops - i didn't see that both sides had to at least be 800px (i though it was just one side as per usual) so i reuploaded mine in their larger, acceptable format! sorry!

  40. hhjm
    hhjm ·

    I think should be limit upload an images

  41. mephisto19
    mephisto19 ·

    hmm... i cannot upload more... it says upload limit exceeded again.....

  42. anarchy
    anarchy ·

    Balls! I made the same mistake, thanks for pointing it out brendend...

    Which leads us to my next request (as said by several persons already):
    A delete function would be lovely!

    Oh YEAH!!! My kind of rumble :DDDDD

    I'm having the same problem I did with yesterday's rumble. I click "Add images to this entry" and the button dissapears, but no browse or upload button or anything else appears in it's place. I don't have a firewall, I don't have any security settings on, cookies are enabled, and I tried 3 different browsers. Could this be a U.S. issue? I've uploaded successfully to other rumbles. :(

    my head hurts from downloading

  46. anglemort
    anglemort ·

    I'm sorry, some of my pics appears two or three times on the slideshow, even if I never uploaded them so many times. It's quite strange because they don't appear so many times in the "your uploaded images".

  47. vicuna
    vicuna ·

    Wow, almost 1000 shots in the gallery.... and 13 hours left to uplaod.. over 2000 shots? 2500??? 3000??? :))))))))))))))))
    That's the upload fever when there's no limit!!! You can't stop crazy lomographers like us all to upload whithout any limit, ha ha ha :))))))))))))))))

  48. vicuna
    vicuna ·

    1211 shots... hmm not bad... :))
