Hamumu Wants You!
 
I'm going to be launching a new page on the site soon, called simply "Pictures" (or more precisely "Dumb Folks: Pictures"). I am looking for submissions for this page! Here is what the page says at the top:

Are you a Hamumu nut? Send in a picture of you and your family and friends playing Hamumu games! Or doing something else Hamumuey! Young or old, we wanna see you Hamming it up.

So send me pictures of you Hamumuing!

- Write a caption/description in your email ("The grandkids hammering away at zombies as usual!" or whatever. Feel free to tell your whole Hamumu story if you want, any words you want to have accompanying the picture). Don't actually put it on the picture itself! I just want separate text. Just something talking about you, and what's in the picture.

- Tell me who you are (your account name), so I can credit it. You don't have to put your real name anywhere in there, but you sure can. Your caption text should definitely include your name (real or fake) as well. When people see the page, I want them to see "Bob playing Dr. Lunatic!" and not "Me playing Dr. Lunatic!"

- And I would love if you include your location. That'll be a fun bit of information.

- If you have multiple pictures, or pictures of multiple people, or multiple pictures of multiple people, bring it on. As much as you've got, I am interested. Pets are welcome too, but include them in the picture with the people - Every picture must have people in it!

- If you are a kid, make sure your parents approve of all of this before you send anything!

- e-mail your picture to jamul@hamumu.com with the caption, name, and location or whatever you're willing to share!

- Obviously, by sending in your picture, you give us the rights to post it on the site. In case you didn't get that...

What I don't want is artwork or anything fake or doctored - well, I do want that, but it'll go on the Fan Art page, not the Pictures page. So definitely send in your Hamumu art too, but that's a whole separate issue. The Fan Art page could always use some love. But this Pictures page is to show the world that real people are really into Hamumu, and it's not just a forum populated by a variety of bots I designed. Please don't photoshop yourself into a Hamumu game (or if you do, send it in as Fan Art, it would be very funny) - I want pure reality here!

I'd really love to. I might have to sort-out the mess with 4 legs that is my desk first, though. :p

Adrian 08-20-2008 11:29 AM

Re: Hamumu Wants You!
 
So basically just send you a picture of me playing hamumu games on my computer?

Jamul 08-20-2008 11:32 AM

Re: Hamumu Wants You!
 
e-mail your picture to jamul@hamumu.com with the caption, name, and location or whatever you're willing to share!

Adrian 08-20-2008 11:37 AM

Re: Hamumu Wants You!
 
Should I wait to send you the picture? Or should I send it as soon as possible?

Jamul 08-20-2008 11:40 AM

Re: Hamumu Wants You!
 
What could there be to wait for? The sooner the better, the more the merrier.

The page to put the pictures up on. I thought you hadn't done it yet.

Re: Hamumu Wants You!
 
There is no page, but I need pictures so I don't launch with a blank page.

Lol! :lol: Love the V8 reference. So random...

So, I don't have a camera down here, but I'll try to find a disposable one soon.

Specific people I want to see:

SpiderPumpkin

CG

Regen

Hammered

Atkins

World Tester Guy :D

More pics of Jamul and Sol

Report to the principal's office right now! ;)

I'm wanted!

Whenever I get the chance, I'll try to sneak the camera out of my grandparents room.

Probably the most you'll ever see of me :D

So, yeah, probably not going to send in any pictures, unless I'm allowed to "censor" my face or something. I want my identity protected :>

EDIT: Oh gosh, I wasted my 1337th post for this xO

Just post a picture of you playing a Hamumu game in the suit.

"Even the wildlife is Dumb!"

that would be kinda hard, since he doesn't have fingers in that suit...

He doesn't have to be winning :p

Maybe just the title screen?

Yay! I new hamumu picture page! Thats so cool! *Photoshoot Time!* :D

EDIT: This is gonna be fun.

death 08-21-2008 01:15 PM

Re: Hamumu Wants You!
 
I'm gonna take my picture! just as soon as I figure out how to take a picture and play a game at the same time!

Mr.Onion 08-21-2008 01:18 PM

Re: Hamumu Wants You!
 
Doesn't your camera have a timer?

PlasmaCannonsRule 08-21-2008 01:19 PM

Re: Hamumu Wants You!
 
Here's an idea; how about people send the picture, and a closeup of themselves, which they and only they can use as their avatar.

(I've seen it elsewhere, so why not here too?)

Adrian 08-21-2008 01:32 PM

Or you could just have someone else take the picture for you. And btw, I'm gonna hopefully take a picture of me playing SWC or something. Then you all can see how ugly I am!

I don't think Jamul's going to go back from assemble-able avatars to pictures.

Redbone 08-21-2008 01:44 PM

Re: Hamumu Wants You!
 
Sweet! As soon as I get home (I'm at a University posting right now, I'm here for Computer Classes) I'll take a picture!

Wesley 08-21-2008 06:11 PM

Re: Hamumu Wants You!
 
I might or might not take my picture. I'll think about it. Regardless, this sounds like an interesting idea!

Blackduck 08-21-2008 07:03 PM

I made my picture!(I sent it to Jamul a while back) but here it is

That's epic!

Jamul 08-21-2008 07:58 PM

Re: Hamumu Wants You!
 
I updated the original post after all the entries I've received have included captions! I realize that was totally my fault after seeing what I wrote. I definitely don't want your picture to have text printed on it. What I meant was please send in a written description or caption in your email along with the photo, not to put a caption on the photo itself. I'll be putting the pictures up on the page and the text under them.

Also, these must be pictures of people! The purpose of the page is to show the world the people who play Hamumu games, so a shot of your computer or whatever is not what we need.

Don't think of this as some kind of art project (all the entries so far have been, as you can see above!). It's just a snapshot of you in action, doing the Dumb stuff! You're not competing for the most clever joke or setup, I just want people to see that you enjoy Hamumu. No need for funny captions or witty remarks, just yourself - a picture of yourself, and your own words about what you're doing in the picture.

Backduck's entry above is perfectly fine, it's got him and Hamumu going for it. I will have to crop out the caption, though. Just don't think you need to come up with something clever yourself. I'd even rather you didn't! Just good old fashioned people. Simple!

And feel free to include your pets! But remember the key rule: don't forget the people!

Charging bravery to be put on camera battery...

also, I broke my fake scythe, so I won't have that. so, I'll just settle for my cloak and skeleton gloves.

AtkinsSJ 08-23-2008 05:31 AM

Re: Hamumu Wants You!
 
Bah! My computer has decided it won't let me copy any photos off the camera card, except for 1. Which is pants as I needed the photos for art. I had loads on there, not just of me pulling a face. Speaking of which, I look awful, but I'll send it in anyway when I can. :p


EDIT: Just needed to unplug and plug it in again. :p
Sent! Not visible in the picture are my arms, or the huge pile of mess on my desk. That's not intentional, and neither is the wonky camera angle. Playing LL2 with one hand while trying to look at a camera you're holding with the other is tricky.

SpaceManiac 08-23-2008 08:45 AM

Re: Hamumu Wants You!
 
I haven't sent it in or even downloaded it off the card yet, but I used a stack of books to hold the camera as I play 6 Hamumu games at once. I think I'm going to re-take it, as all it showed was me giving a thumbs-up, and I now have 2 more Hamumu games.

AtkinsSJ 08-23-2008 10:08 AM

Re: Hamumu Wants You!
 
I wanted to have 2 thumbs up, but I would have needed 4 arms.

drgamer 08-23-2008 06:14 PM

Borrow another person's arms?

EDIT: or better yet, borrow someone else's brain :p

Hey, there's a new trophy for it. :p (Well, at least, I'm assuming it's for the picture-sending, because it shows ''saying cheese'')

Es problem? I think Jamul wouldn't mind if you blocked out a portion of your face...but whaddaya got to hide?! ;)

Jamul 08-27-2008 09:42 AM

Re: Hamumu Wants You!
 
Yes, it's public, and yes attach to an email. I don't want blocked pictures - if you aren't comfortable with your face being up on the site, then you shouldn't send in a picture! There's nothing requiring you to. And make sure you ask your parents first! They may be the ones who aren't happy with your name or picture being up on a website.

So no Fursuit picture? :(

Jamul 08-27-2008 09:53 AM

Re: Hamumu Wants You!
 
That's fine! But no blurred or covered pictures. Also not really interested in a picture with someone's face actually intentionally covered (like holding a book over it or something). But wearing a costume is a whole different story. The face-covered picture looks dumb, the costume picture looks funny.

Now, if only my alien mask fit me...

Jamul 08-27-2008 10:15 AM

Re: Hamumu Wants You!
 
Of course I prefer unmasked pictures! People need to see how much Hamumu games make you glow with joy.

drgamer 08-27-2008 10:47 AM

Re: Hamumu Wants You!
 
What about a mask that simulates that?

AtkinsSJ 08-27-2008 11:01 AM

A glow in the dark mask? That could work. :p

Atkins has no wings or feathers or even a beak; He lied to us! Or, more likely, that's not Atkins at all; Just some poor person he mind controlled.

I now feel very embarrassed. Hooray!

I was feeling pretty manky that day, so probably not the best time to take a photo of myself which would then be displayed proudly on a website. Ah, the joys of retrospect.

Well I can't find My Dr.L pics (or I deleted them or somthing *shrug*) so I'll dye my hair purpla agian and spike it JUST to please people and get laughed at. Also I'll probably wear it to school and get laughed at again. so near halloween if this is still avaible I'll do. (though I'll do it even if its not sooo...)

okay I have two options. wear my Death costume while playing a hamumu game, or do something else involving hamumu when my face looks better.

although... I think you'd be looking awhile to find a good looking homeless american. (I mean, the ones you see out on the street... if you go to where they are, that is)

Oh, firefox spell check, American without the capitalization does not equal 'gamer', 'lamer'.. aww, it fixed itself...

Well, I suppose that is more attractive than my face (and hey, they both have cheeks), so maybe I'll switch the places of my shirt and pants and stand on my hands while somebody takes a Hamumu pic.

This should probably be deleted.

Picture Thingy
 
I sent my Pic to jamul@hamumu.com (or whatever that email is) and it's not going up! it's been almost 1 week and he hasn't even responded to my email with the pic in it!

Also, sorry for overexatturating, I took about 50 photos to get it right :P

Jamul 10-23-2008 05:16 PM

Re: Picture Thingy
 
I'm sorry, I should've replied right away to the email. I didn't because I knew I wasn't putting it up very soon! But you should just PM me with something like this, since obviously it's only pertinent to you and not to anyone else.

I put pictures up once a month usually, along with all the other stuff that happens at the beginning of the month (newsletter & friends).

Disco Duck 10-26-2008 04:18 PM

Re: Hamumu Wants You!
 
I just posted mine! Hope jamul likes it. ;)

AtkinsSJ 10-31-2008 04:08 PM

Re: Hamumu Wants You!
 
I just noticed, nobody beyond me on the pictures page also has their picture on their dumb profile. If I have to have a mildly scary picture of myself greet me whenever I click on Dumb Folks, so should everyone else!

That is, have a picture of themselves. Not me. That'd be really weird.

Jamul 10-31-2008 04:15 PM

I forgot there was a manual thing I needed to do there... this is a pain!
