BTW sweetpoison, whatever happened to letting the winners post the next pic to be captioned?

Was it just too slow and you decided that you posting them instead of the winners would be better?


 

The UNCHARTED Caption Contest needs to be kept on a regular schedule. This cannot be done if we always need to wait for the winner to post an image. That is pretty much the gist of it although I might argue that the winner receives a much better “reward” these days.


I like I-Like-Pie45's idea. But if you have problems with winners not sending an image in time you have to be clear that they sent their image withing 24(or 48) hours after winning.

 

And sorry, I didn't read the best 5 thing.

The UNCHARTED Caption Contest used to run like that and the instructions for winners regarding UNCHARTED image submissions were made very clear. Under a regular schedule (and it needs to be a regular schedule now) this approach would have given people significantly less time to submit their captions or vote in a poll. The changes that were made to this contest were made for good reasons.

Would it be possible to PM you pics to be considered for use in upcoming caption contests?

Yes, it would be possible but I don’t need my inbox filling up with dozens of UNCHARTED images from everyone.

 

What I can do is give the winner of each UNCHARTED caption contest the opportunity to submit an UNCHARTED image to me (through a private message) for potential use in an upcoming caption contest. Would that work for most of you?

Elena: Nate, what happened to that Cintamani resin I was planning to study? You know, that explosive blue substance which turns you into a homicidal crazed Hulk monster upon consumption?

 

Drake: Don't worry. I didn't want to risk knocking them onto the floor, so I put the resin into the cup right next to it.

 

Elena: You mean the same cup that Jeff is drinking out of right now?

 

Drake: Oh... yeah... I think we should start running.

You can create a caption for Week 14. Read your private message from me when you get the chance. Since you won the UNCHARTED Caption Contest for Week 13 you can send me an UNCHARTED image (via private message) and I will consider it for use in a future caption contest. I can never guarantee that it will be used in the next caption contest (i.e., Week 15) but I will file it away and try to use it later.

Yeah, I prefer you do the pictures, Talbot. Old man my age, it's gonna turn out bad.

Caption:

Drake: Why did you bring David Schwimmer?

Elena: Popular actors boost ratings, Nate.

Drake: But he's BEHIND the camera!

Jeff: Uhh guys, my name's actually Jeff-

Drake: SHUT UP ROSS.
