    Photo Contest with Prizes: "How Fred can ya Get?"

    How Fred can ya Get? (Photo Contest with Prizes)

    As you've all seen, we have a new membership level. It's Titanium, with the Titanium Club. The Club, as it's currently envisaged is a kind of Super Foo. We chose Titanium because Ti is a premium material used in bike construction, so we thought it was appropriate for a bike forum. The Ti benefits are greater than the old Red Star membership, with the following features.

    Bike Forums Titanium Membership Benefits include:
    *
    - Access to Titanium Members only Forum
    - Ability to embed video in posts
    - Search Social Groups Link on Navbar Search
    - Ability to create Forums inside social groups. (SocialForums 1.4)
    - Custom Smilies (MySmilies VB (v3.7.0)
    - Mini YouTube Video in Profile (right side block)
    In the works…
    Comprehensive Ignore System – for customization…ignore your friends!

    The development team is also working on other options as well.

    So, to kick this off, we're running a photo contest, bike related, and the theme is “How Fred can you get?” (Isn't the dissonance kind of fun, a Fred and Ti?)

    All we ask is that they be natural images, no photoshopping (except to perhaps enhance and clean up a photo). There will be a panel of six moderators scoring these photos on style, comedic value, and originality. Have some fun with this, and try for one of 10 free Titanium Upgrades to be given away.

    Format can be jpeg, GIF (not animated!), or whatever other format the forum will accept. You can host them on any of the net hosts or on our servers, either one. Let's see those Freddish pictures, and take a shot at the Ti!

    The contest officially starts Wednesday, Sept 24th and will run for a week. Wednesday, Oct 1, the thread will close and we will start the judging. Good luck and get snapping those shutters.

    is this a red star + titanium thing?
    any prerequisite?
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Red stars in existence are going to continue, but there will be no more red star memberships offered. Ti is the replacement upgrade membership.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    The official entries start Wednesday. I just gave everyone a heads up tonight so they can either search their old photos or create one.

    Women can be Fred's too, Siu.

    I believe I sold that bike shortly thereafter...I was prolly marketing it toward the ladies, being it was on the small side (The gal who bought it didn;t seem to mind the shiny jolly candy-like red bell).

    That was a neat bike...Fredalicious, but nice to be able to lock up and not worry...ahh, the beauty of fredness
