We Need Your Special Event Pictures

As people are pouring into the office after an eventful weekend, Dartmouth awakens slowly, messenger pop-ups show a decaying trend in awareness that it’s actually “the Monday after”. What might have happened this weekend for people to be so generally slow and blurt out “awww … my head”? Was all this just a dream?

That’s why we need your help.

The first pressing need is for photographs to illustrate a special section we’ll be publishing with the best pictures you all send in. We’re looking for pictures from the fanfest, the airwaves, your hotel room; you get the general idea …

As an addition we’ll be selecting 10 of those pictures to be featured prominently on the website as a showcase for things to come. These 10 pictures will be eligible for a prize (only one picture per user) …

Final appearance change

Ok, probably not.

Dude, where’s my account?

If you have had your account disabled within the past few days it is because we believe it has been compromised. You might ask yourself why it is me blogging about this and here is why.

My name is M purifier (part of Mika) and I work on Project: Hazel’s Web Networking and CMS systems. I noticed a lot of activity surrounding the forums over the past few days from accounts which don’t normally post, upon close inspection I realised they had been compromised.

Please contact STARS immediately if this affects you.
