Welcome to Round 4 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 4 is:


http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac207/tross13/Contests/PedestrianCrossing.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!!!

The Deadline
The deadline for this contest is 11:59pm MAY 2nd, 2010 Greenwich Mean Time (http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/info/current-time.htm). Your entry must be received BEFORE MIDNIGHT GMT on the 2nd 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
Where Am I? Taffey

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?25865-The-Caption-Contest-Round-34) 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, for providing the inspiration to put together this whole thing, and for helping put together the excellent photo for this round.

Awesome stuff Taffey! That is an excellent picture :-)

I see you're already catching the ModNation Racer fever from that demo code you got today ;)

Yay! This is a tricky picture to put a caption for but after thinking for a while I finally came up with something reasonably good!:idea:

Awesome stuff Taffey! That is an excellent picture :-)Thanks poo! Really though... 99.4% of the credit goes to the uber-awesome jeffcu28. I did the grunt work of taking the actual pictures, but he brought it all home with this incredible composite. Nice work jc!




I see you're already catching the ModNation Racer fever from that demo code you got today ;)Who, me? How'd ya guess? ;)

I actually had to make the conscious decision to NOT bring my PSP with me to work today. Yeah, suuuuuuuuure I'd only play it at lunch. :rolleyes: I don't need that kind of trouble. ;)

I'm cracking up at these entries so far. :D

There's still a couple of days left, so you've got an idea brewing in your little sack-brain somewhere, now's the time to post it. ;)

Also, here's SockFace's entry:

I'm surprised no one else has used this idea already.

I just figured out another entry, although it's basically yours but adding on a bit. why is it that I only think of a good one after someone has already done sort of the same thing?:rolleyes:

Thanks for the praise and the bigger image.
By the way, would you mind telling me how you got it to do that?

Thanks for the praise and the bigger image.
By the way, would you mind telling me how you got it to do that?No problem! As for the picture size, anytime you attach a picture to a post it always shows a thumbnail like that. To display full size, you need to link to a hosted picture. In this case, I just uploaded your picture to my free Photobucket account and dropped the link into some tags. Easy!

Off topic here, but I couldn't help but laugh at famouscustard's sig. It says it contains nothing funny or insightful, yet it jumps to PSP World right after. How ironic! :p

(Yeah, I do laugh at the little things in life. :) )

Congrats to the winners and thanks for the hilarious entries! :D

Round 5 of the caption contest will be delayed by a couple of weeks due to the fact that I'll be out of town and without access to my usual method of capturing a photo.

Congrats to the winners! It was fun stepping in to help judge this one and honored to be a part of the team.

...the ps3 version of this contest will be delayed a bit as well. Possibly not so long as this, but well... time catches up on you sometimes and this week was one for the records. So stay tuned!

I actually won the Caption contest too, but I'd rather have an I.O.U. instead of XP. After all, you never know when you'll need a favor. ;)

No, because Taffey lost his taffy, so now on one can have fun until he finds his sweets. ;)

So you gonna run any more of these? I'm feeling kinda funny. :rolleyes:Your timing is impeccable jww. Normally I ask jeffcu to stop reading my thoughts, but in this case it's you! ;)

I was actually just lurking in the PS3 caption contest thread thinking that I've been out of the loop and need to start participating in that one.... And post a new PSP version as well. As luck would have it, jeffcu and I have been working a new one of these and should have it ready to go tomorrow if everything goes to plan.

Stay tuned! :D

lol!! Too funny!

Good.. because I may not have one ready to go for the next round of the PS3 version this weekend! ;) We have a thought, but well.. building the set and doing the pic is always another matter! ;)
