Behold! The Photo Friday Wiki
Every Photo Friday from inception in 2006 through last Friday has been listed, linked, and organized for your viewing pleasure.→
In addition to organizing all of the past themes, I've also aggregated all of the theme suggestion threads I could find since late 2009. They've been used to list "suggested by" details and update the list of suggestions for future threads.
If you remember suggesting a theme that was used, but you aren't credited for it, go ahead and add ", suggested by (username)
" to the appropriate line in the wiki. Your login info for the wiki is the same as what you use here. If you're not comfortable editing the wiki, email me and I'll take care of it for you.
Suggestions that were the same or similar have been consolidated into one theme because we have so many to go through. These are the themes listed with more than one username. If anyone who has been consolidated has an issue with this, let me know and I'll split the suggestions as necessary.
Themes have been written on little sheets of paper that are all the same size so I can one at random from a baggie. Five themes have already been drawn from the baggie and are listed in the "Upcoming" section with their dates. I will still be posting an advance thread on Wednesdays
to remind everyone, but I was hoping that listing a few in advance could allow us to do themes that might take more time than just a couple of days notice.
Feel free to add your suggestions to the list, but please make sure to check for duplicates before you do. Please also remember to add your name to the suggestion. I'll check the list for updates before I draw new themes for the upcoming weeks. We have plenty to go through, so no pressure. Again, if you're not comfortable editing the wiki I'm happy to do it for you.
I'd like your thoughts on this:
In the first thread about the MeFi Magazine, Brandon Blatcher mentioned
that we do Photo Friday over here and it might be a starting point for finding images to use in the magazine. Since I've got a handle on theme selection, would you guys be comfortable with me offering to post themes for the magazine people only if they are having trouble getting photo submissions
? They'd still have to contact the user for permission using the photo and I don't think it would happen every month. Since Photo Friday is our thing, I'd like to make sure this is ok with everyone here before I offer the idea up to the magazine people.
I think that about sums it up. Questions? Comments?
