Welcome to Round 2 of the "What Would Sackboy Say?" LBP PSP Caption Contest! The idea behind this is simple:


I post an in-game picture from LBP PSP. You add a caption. That's it.


.....and the picture for Round 2 is:


http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac207/tross13/WWSS_Round_2.jpg




How do I enter?
Just save a copy of the photo above, add your caption or subtitle, and post it here. Whoever comes up with the best caption wins! Every two weeks a new picture will be posted and the fun begins all over again.



What should the caption be?
Anything really. Perhaps it's something Sackboy (or Sackgirl!) is thinking or saying. Your caption may be a public service message, or a dramatic movie poster title. Captions can be speech bubbles, signs, or even a short story if you like. The sky is the limit! (I don't need to remind you to keep it clean, do I?)



Wait, how the heck do I add captions?
There are many different ways. You can use just about any photo editing software there is to add subtitles, bubbles, boxes, whatever. Even Microsoft Paint will work and approximately everyone on Earth has access to that.

If you're feeling extra-fancy, however, I suggest you head over to Photobucket.com and grab yourself a free account (http://register.photobucket.com/). Upload the picture above, select "Edit", and go to the "Decorations" tab. You can do all kinds of cool stuff there, all for free!

Still having trouble? Don't be afraid to ask for help. We don't bite... hard. :p



The Prizes
Awards are given to the first, second, and third best captions as follows: First Place: 250 experience points and the option to serve as a judge in the next round contest!
Second Place: 100 experience points
Third Place: 50 experience points.
The LBPC forum experience system (vBExperience) is still missing in action, but not for long. In the meantime, I will keep a tally of the experience awarded. When the system (or equivalent) is back up and running, I'll pay up! I swear, I'll pay! No, not the kneecaps!!!



Bonus Prize! - WINNER: rOckalOvEer x73
Doesn't that scene look familiar? It should! The picture for this round is straight out of a LBP PSP community level... but which one?? I'll give you a hint: It's by a member of LBPCentral.


The first person to correctly identify this level and provide a valid link to the Showcase thread
will win 50 experience points!

Sorry, the creator of this level is EXEMPT. I'm watching you! :kz:

Congrats to rOckalOvEer x73 for correctly identifying A Sack's Tale (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?22794-A-Sack-s-Tale-by-Fastbro) by Fastbro (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/member.php?7949-Fastbro) as the source of the picture.



The Deadline
The deadline for this contest is 11:59pm APRIL 3RD, 2010 Greenwich Mean Time (http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/info/current-time.htm). Your entry must be received BEFORE MIDNIGHT GMT on the 3rd or it will be considered late. Just think how embarassed Sackboy will be.



The Rules
You can submit up to two entries per round, although of course you can only win once per round.
Any and all types of image editing are allowed.
Participants cannot win twice in a row. This means that if you win this round, you can't win the next one. If you won the last one, you can't win this one. You can still participate of course, but just for fun.
Judges may also enter the contest and participate, but just for fun.
Read the disclaimer. Yes, we have a disclaimer. Read it or there will be NO SOUP FOR YOU!




The Disclaimer
By participating in this contest, you agree that you understand that the judges will make their decisions objectively, fairly, and in an unbiased manner. You also agree that there is no place for whining in an excellent contest such as this one, and any belly-aching or other distasteful behavior will result in public mockery and being pelted with soggy apricots. Finally, by participating you agree that the point of this whole thing, win or lose, is simply to have fun and enjoy yourself. This is, afterall, a video game.




The Judges
Toilet Paper Tube Taffey
Air Freshener jeffcu28
Liquid Soap famouscustard - Winner of What Would Sackboy Say Round 1!




How did you think of this awesome idea?
I didn't. I am blatantly ripping off the long-running and excellent PS3 Caption Contest. The current (creator) curator jwwphotos has been kind enough to endorse this PSP-flavored version of the contest. Thanks jwwphotos, you rock!

Be sure to check out the current round of the PS3 Caption Contest (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?24482-The-Caption-Contest-ROUND-32) and upload a photo there too! The PS3 caption contest also uses a two-week entry period, but our deadlines alternate. That means there's a new contest starting every week!

Finally, a big thanks to jeffcu28 for yet another awesome banner and for providing the inspiration to put together this whole thing.

Winner! :D

Nice job rOckalOvEer x73! That is the correct level indeed. I officially owe you 50 experience points!

I've got you on my list of "people I owe". ;) I'll be granting you the exp as soon as it becomes available again on the forums... Which will hopefully be very soon. :)

What are the Experiene points?

So what are these mysterious points you ask? Well before upgrading to vBulletin 4.0, we had an experience system (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?1768-An-Introduction-to-Experience) where you gain points based on your usefulness as a member of this community. For instance, you get a certain amount of points for posting on threads or giving out "Thanks." These experience points improve your rank--the "Lint" title above your avatar--and they could've also been used as currency in the experience store to purchase cool sackboy icons to display under your avatar, or buying "bundles" that give you extra priviliges like having an animated avatar, or using font color in your sig. It was an excellent feature for contests to reward points, and we know the developer of the old version is currently working on a new one that will be compatible with this version of vBulletin. Hope this helps!

Best,
jeffcu28

Only the bonus prize is gone! You can still enter a caption!

Yep, only the bonus prize has been claimed - the throne of BEST EVAR CAPTION!!!1! is still up for grabs. ;)

To help eliminate confusion, I moved the "bonus prize" section of the contest description down below the regular prizes.

nah, i meant for prizes, you know because the experience point system will be out-of-whack for a while. unless it is still experience points that you earn but you just get them when everything is fixed?

I forgot to mention this before, but the last round's picture was named "Drake Bawling". I just wanted to know, who named it? That was one of the funniest names I seen! :p

Anyways, I'll enter. I can't resist contests! They're all that and a bag of Fun-Chips! :p

I'm sorry for the EXTREMELY bad quality of editing. I might have another go at it tomorrow...
(If it doesn't work, click this link (http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy353/LittleBigAce/?action=view¤t=WWSS_Round_2_LittleBigLearner-1.jpg). If that doesn't work, then... umm... I'm all out of ideas)

Taffey
03-29-2010, 08:25 PM
It works! Going forward all you have to do is copy the "direct link" for the picture (below and to the left of the picture when viewing it in photobucket) and put that link inside tags. Just like.... this!

Sweet, I got third! I'm surprised. The first contest I enter on this site and I get third! :D

I would have put CyberSora's entry in first if I was a judge, but I'm glad I didn't get first. I don't want to be a Judge for the next contest. :p

GOOD JOB EVERYONE!!! ALL THE ENTRIES WERE AWESOME!!!

Hey everyone,

CyberSora is in a winning streak. Let's stop this by giving him some more competition next time! ;)

04-13-2010, 03:03 AM
Oh, trust me, China LIKES it when people poke fun at Japan. I won't go into a history lesson, but China still has a huge grudge against Japan due to World War II. It's not like a small portion of the population feels this way, it's like the entire nation is still pretty unhappy about it.

An example is that I was in a car that was involved in a 3 car accident, and one of the people literally said that the accident should be one of the people's fault simply because they had a Japanese car! Also, the student in my classes don't like talking about Japan. They always get a little angry or uncomfortable.

There's a quick mini-Chinese lesson for you :-)

Thanks for that! Now I know what to say to my Chinese friend if he's ever in a bad mood:

Me: "Hey?"
Him: "What"
Me: "At least you're not Japanese."
Him: :D

Just kidding (besides, the smiley looks like a Japanese Sackgirl :p). Anyhoo... you teach in China!? Or do you just have a Chinese kid in your class?
