Caption This

I think it would be cool to have a forum where a picture could be posted every week, and users could submit their own caption. No one would be allowed to post in the forum, just the person who was moderating it. The captions would be sent to the mod via PM, and at the end of the week, they would pick the best one and display it in the thread. You would be able to scroll through previous weeks to see other pictures and captions. They could be funny or serious, but the best caption along with the screen name of the submitter would be displayed. Of course all pictures would have something to do with motorcycles, and nothing would be gory, gross or dirty, but I think this would be fun!
Any feedback?

I saw them do that in Maxim and it was very funny. I'm sure we could come up with some good stuff. Any way to waste more time at work is OK in my book.

I just think that if you opened it for everyone, you would have a serious bandwith problem, and people would post nasty captions even though they were told not to. It would just be more work for the mods.

Could there be a way that you could post, but no body could see the posts?? Until you turn them on at the end of the week? And then all the posts are visable? I don't know.. Just tossing around ideas. I think this is a good one and I think it would be a success.

I think its a great idea!

If Tony would bump the # of PM's allowed i may consider it. Just put it up in the "Funny Papers" section. It would be a test at first obviously.
