POTUS Obama we want to keep you to help us

with our tired, our poor, our huddled masses yearning to breathe free, and everyone else as well

Photobucket problems

Am I the only one?
I cannot find a way to contact those folks, and I must say I have in the past always ignored it when people here said they had problems, because I never before could not upload.

For 4 days now I have signed in (successful) and whenever I click on "upload" the way I customarily do, I get the signup screen again.
I am very frustrated.
Any ideas? I would cancel my (paid) account, but I have no alternative. Tried Flickr, could not figure it out.

Calling postatomic to please take over your contest.

I checked, and you are a star member. I started the contest submissions for you in order to get things going since you said you had to be away.
I hope you are back, and can step up to continue submissions and then run the preliminaries.
We have a varied and interesting number of photos already.

While I was waiting for DU - and feeling lost without it - I found this cartoon

As an immigrant, not growing up speaking English I've wondered what a "shit eating grin" really is

I no longer have any questions.

Comments for:*****November’s contest “Almost Anything” *****

Please make your comments on the submissions here, because the Submission thread is designed for only the submitted photographs.
Let us know what you're thinking, let's make it a lively contest!

edited to add link to the submission thread:


SUBMISSIONS HERE*****The theme for November’s contest is “Almost Anything” *****

This contest is started for “post atomic” who has won the October contest but had to leave in early November until the 12th of November.

We picked the theme from his suggestions made before he left, and as I interpret
“Almost Anything” is that it is a photograph with no theme, and I for one will pick one I took that either spoke to me after I saw it, or one where I tried to capture a scene that was intriguing.
I will be able to enter a photograph since I am not the official host.

I’m excited about it because it may bring to us a great variety of images.

Now, remember, don’t post your comments in this thread, post them here:


and here are the basic rules for the submissions:

The photo you submit must have been taken by you.
Please use a light touch in editing submissions.

Submissions will run until November 14th or until 30 entries have been submitted, and until post atomic returns and takes over to post the preliminaries.

Have fun!

November Contest Rules

Only one entry per person. You need to post your entry in the submission thread started by the Host of a contest. Please be sure to include a "Title" for your photograph in the Subject line of your post. The submission thread is for photo entries only, no comments, no questions. The Host will start a separate thread just for comments and questions.

Once a photo is entered in a contest it is ineligible for any future contest unless the Host specifies otherwise.

Please check the sizing on your photo before submitting it: longest side no more than 1024 px and file size < 675K If you need help posting a photograph or with image sizing, just ask.

The Host is the final authority in their contests.

Submissions will be limited to 30 entries maximum unless the Photography Group votes to change the limits.

The winner of the contest agrees to host the next month's contest (or recruit someone else to host the contest), and pick the next month's theme. The host of the monthly contest cannot enter the contest they are hosting.


An entrant to this contest, by submitting a photograph, is giving permission for that photograph to be copied to Demopedia or to a linked Gallery and included in a DU Calendar that will display the photographs entered for this contest for the purpose of publicizing future contests and/or commemorating current and past contests. The entrant retains all other rights to the photograph being submitted. Neither Demopedia and/or a linked Gallery may use any photograph submitted for any purpose other than to display the photograph being submitted by the entrant, and neither gains any real or implied ownership rights to the photograph.

Putin Appears with Trump in Flurry of Swing-State Rallies -predicts Borowitz

TAMPA (The Borowitz Report)—Infused with a sense of urgency as Election Day nears, the Trump campaign has enlisted President Vladimir Putin, of Russia, to appear with the Republican nominee in a dizzying array of swing-state rallies over the weekend.

Putin will be the most visible Trump surrogate in the final weekend of the campaign, as he tries to fire up voters in Florida, North Carolina, Colorado, and Nevada.

The Russian President seemed to relish the warm response he got at his first Trump rally, in Tampa, where he led the crowd in a raucous chant of “Lock her up.”

Trump praised Putin’s talent for politics by noting that he had won the Russian election in 2012 by a landslide. “He got sixty-four per cent of the vote, and no one else even came close,” Trump said. “He’s terrific.”

Putin, whose English is rudimentary at best, kept his remarks brief at the Tampa rally, but echoed Melania Trump’s recent call for an end to bullying.

A Republican strategist, Harland Dorrinson, called the Trump campaign’s use of Putin in crucial battleground states “very, very smart.”
“At this point, you really couldn’t ask for a more effective surrogate,” he said. “You’d much rather see Trump up there with Putin than with, say, Chris Christie.”

While some in the media criticized the Trump campaign for allowing Putin to influence the outcome of a U.S. election, the Republican nominee’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, pushed back in an appearance on CNN.

“This is just another case of media bias against Donald Trump,” she said. “Jay Z and Beyoncé, who have no experience in government at all, are allowed to campaign for Hillary Clinton, but Vladimir Putin, who actually runs an entire country, can’t appear with Donald Trump? Come on.”
