Title: 2011 Club Calendar Submissions Are Open
Post by: Arro on 08:04:11 PM / 01-May-10
The submissions are now open for 2011 Club-S12 Calendar entries!

Yes, for months earlier than before. Because you lazy phucks take forEVER to get us good pics

Last year's calendar was LATE... because of what I just stated above, no other reasons. The previous year (2009) was our fault, but this last year should have happened smoother. SO, here we go, WAY sooner.

Again like last year, there CAN be a "BEST GROUP SHOT", which will get a month spot in the calendar along with credit printed for those in the picture, so get your local members together and get soe good meet shots. It can be a shot from a car show provided that:

 - You own the shot. Or your buddy does and says it's okay to use it.
 - There are ONLY S12's in the foreground. Now, if someone's 510 is sitting way in the background, that's okay.

Like before 2011 will also feature a "Car of the Year" choice, so if you think your car has a lot going for it both on the outside, under the hood, and in the cab, take shots of all that and submit it. Who knows, you might make Car of the Year, and get the back cover spot. We <3 engine bay shots, cool closeups of suspension and brakes behind sexy wheels, pics of race-spec gauge and dash setups, along with multiple angle shots of hot cars. I've been really pleased with the previous Car of the Year winners.


Good luck, and let's see what you guys can bring to the table

SUBMISSION RULES[/size]

What submissions that will make it will be GOOD shots. Less important if you're stock or not, and more important:

1. How clean your car looks.
2. The setting you take the picture in.
3. The camera creativity (angle, lighting, etc).
4. If there are a dozen other submitted cars that look identical to yours, but your picture is better in the preceding points.

DO NOT send images that are resized down. We need FULL-SIZED images, AT LEAST 2,000 pixels wide. Anything less WILL BE DISCARDED. So make sure your digital camera is set to full resolution, and unless your cellphone is something like 3MP and the shot is clean, forget the phone pics.

You are to EMAIL your submission photos to clubs12admin@gmail.com DO NOT PM THEM, AND DO NOT POST THEM IN THE FORUM! The ONLY submissions that will be evaluated are those emailed to the above email address. ALSO, since we are starting so much earlier this year, PM me to let me know you emailed your submissions!

As I said, DO NOT post *submission photos* here! We don't want arguments over who's is better and worthy for one thing, and for another, posting them will just give others ideas to improve on it and beat you out for a spot on the calendar.

... have them in NO LATER than October 31, 2010


Edit: DO NOT POST SUBMISSIONS HERE! DO NOT POST SUBMISSIONS HERE! DO NOT POST SUBMISSIONS HERE!

are you still going to argue black and blue about the quarter lock making cars look broken?

I dont really understand the rational you guys choose for the wheel lock setup.  I didnt two years ago when I helped out and still do not.  Looking at magazines, other publications, and talking to photographers as of late, I think it's a good idea to allow quarter-locked wheels and such, as long as it is obviously artistic and such.

Post by: Xano on 05:40:58 AM / 10-May-10
its up to arro and not me, im just going with what im betting to be his preference.  I will say that I agree with him on the fact that I like straight wheels better though.

unless its for showing off the max steering throw or your camber increase/caster, i dont get the different lock positions.

i just took my pics with my wheels where they were to get in the place where i snapped pics :S

Post by: VG33ERGazelle? on 11:15:19 AM / 10-May-10
lock positioned wheels would make sense if say...your shot was a drifting action shot or something.
Title: 2011 Club Calendar Submissions Are Open
Post by: fastback_silvia on 02:01:31 PM / 10-May-10
a shot of the car at a 3/4 view point with locked wheels allows more of the car to be seen in a single shot. you can see the front of the car, the side of the car, and a straight view of the wheel itself, as apposed to having the wheel being straight at at an angle that may make it slightly harder to see the wheel type. this is especially true when it comes to deep dish wheels, as you can often only see the lip from a 3/4 view shot and not the actual wheel style itself.

its a similar theory to how a person is photographed. it adds character to the shot and gives it a bit of life that a "parked car" shot usually lacks. if you were taking a picture of someone, would you want them to pose or stand straight up with their arms at their sides?

Post by: Draconis on 02:04:39 PM / 10-May-10
They key word is that it needs to be artistic, which is not an easy thing to do.  Anyone can turn a wheel and take a picture, but does it work?  I do know that in the 09 calendar, both Markus and I have our wheels not straight.  It suited the picture and was not drastic, but it is there and works.  I'm just saying, that as a rule, I can understand you dont want everyone submitting photos with wheels angled, but to reject all of them, not quite sure that's a good choice either.  Def. could see not recommending it but a disclaimer saying if you think you have some magical ability and can make it fit well, then go ahead and try.  After all, someone can submit a couple pictures to choose from and *one* of them may have some amount of wheel turned.

Post by: Arro on 09:07:43 PM / 07-Jul-10
Some of the submissions thus far are pretty good, and new people along with some that I've wanted to see submit now for awhile... I'm gonna say that I'm relaxed a bit now on the turned wheel thing, because some of the cars in both the previous years' calendars have it slightly. It all comes down to how well -- or just plain unsightly -- it ends up looking.

So if you think your car's pics look good... give it a shot.Some of you know that we've given some guidance on how to take them, and managed to get cars in the calendar that initially weren't photographed well. And many of you do just fine on your own. The bottom line is that there is plenty of potential out there, both refined and in the raw.

We've already got some good submissions, but keep 'em comin. Every year we get surprises and I'm sure this year will have some, too.

And Justin, your car definitely has a good shot at it

Will previous calendar entries be allowed this year?  I know for last years calendar you said previous entries would have to wait 3 years before being considered for a slot again.  Sorry, just don't want to waste time taking pics if I don't qualify

Justin you would prolly get featured, if you were so inclined to send something. Gustard, if we met up I could take something calendar-worthy. Keith it's three years and SIGNIFICANT visual change, or six years for just a reprisal.

I encourage more entries so send em!

Send what you got...

At this point, since nobody seems to have enough good pics so far, it's gonna be way late, and will get discounted. I don't care how late, it will get produced, but it just sucks that there arent as many good submissions this time around.

Nope.  I still have the 85 turbo.  Trying to sell it actually.  Cant find the title (which isnt in my name) holding up the sale.

This is the 88 se that was for sale in Dothan, Al I bought a few months ago from some on on these boards.  Had the busted auto trans.  Scotty was his name on these boards I think

the calendar idea got suckerpunched when people with nice cars failed to participate; Justin you are personally guilty of that, and while you may or may not have a good excuse, the fact is that cars such as yours could have made the difference.

If anyone still wants to see something produced at a substantial discount, I just need you guys to send me good pics and we can at least shit something decent (albeit late) out. That includes you too, Justin, if you actually wanted to be featured it would happen. Just keep in mind this is for the community, not for me, I would be losing money to produce and discount one now.

I think that accepting artistic shots could be cool, no matter what is the state of the S12. A nice shot of a rusted S12 in a field with a nice light play could be cool! That will make some pictures stand out from the rest.
Title: Re: 2011 Club Calendar Submissions Are Open
Post by: Arro on 11:06:26 PM / 20-Jun-11
Like I said before... if I have covers ready, printing sorted out, but not enough pics to use, it is indeed the owners of the cars to blame. Maybe some of them who would want to send pics have good reasons why they can't, or maybe it's just laziness or (in the case of one or two of them) an issue of spite... except that the reasons aren't what I emphasized. If we don't accept that the responsibility for procuring useable photos is squarely on the shoulders of the owners (of which I too am an owner), then how the heck are we ever going to produce another calendar again?

I think that is a pretty reasonable assertion. Lemme ask this of the rest of you: Do you disagree with that?
Title: Re: 2011 Club Calendar Submissions Are Open
Post by: Maxpow on 05:24:53 AM / 21-Jun-11
Arro, you should have just printed a calender with the pictures you had gotten. I absolutely agree. You hold out every year and its always too late.


Edited for you darling.

Post by: Arro on 01:08:47 PM / 21-Jun-11
Andrew, you don't understand, which isn't your fault; if I get a low-resolution picture, I can't use it. It's not like viewing it on your screen, it has to be 4MP and up. I just didn't get nearly enough pics like that. I tried to get some people to reshoot with actual cameras instead of cellphones, but it didn't happen :/ Again... no pics, no calendar.

I didn't hold out, I announced open submission early last year, same with the year before. People didn't start sending me stuff until late summer and fall, some not until December. Like I said before, I can't travel the world and take the pics myself.

wanna know the reasons i didnt submit my car........

1. NOTCHES MOTOR WAS BLOWN, I HAD NO DAILY DRIVER AS I SPUN A ROD BEARING ON MY 300ZX AS WELL AND TAKING THE EASIER OF THE TWO I RE-SWAPPED MY S12 INSTEAD OF DICKING WITH A VG30DE IN A CRAMPED BAY SO I COULD DAILY IT INSTEAD OF TAKING PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION DAILY.

2. IVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR WORK (WHICH I HAVE FOUND AS OF NOW) SO A CALENDER SHOOT AND EVEN PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE CAR WERE LAST ON MY AGENDA.

3. [NOT REALLY A REASON] BUT TOTALLY NOT MY FAULT THAT OTHER PEOPLE SUBMITTED SHITTY PICTURES THAT'S ON THEM, ONE CAR DOESN'T MAKE OR BREAK THE CALENDER SO ID HOPE. THERE ARE PLENTY OF OTHER COOLER CARS OUT THERE THAN MINE. NO ONE SAID ID NEVER SUBMIT PICTURES IVE JUST BEEN BUSY AND RARELY HAVE TIME TO GO ONLINE ANYMORE. LET ALONE DRIVE TO LOCATIONS AND TAKE PICS I WORK 5-6 DAYS A WEEK AND MY SCHEDULE VARIES

I just stumbled upon this thread. Im not that active on C-S12 but a nice calender full of S12's sound nice.

However a side note.
Arro I read your comments and I find them not worthy of an admin or moderator. You should give the right example as you are one of the faces of C-S12. If I'm right it is not allowed to post offensive comments regardless of past history. Or is it normal to post this type of comments in the USA?

Actually I recieved neither, now you mention it.....
Title: Re: 2011 Club Calendar Submissions Are Open
Post by: Arro on 07:34:46 PM / 22-Jun-11
no, it's not normal, and you are correct, I shouldn't let one person piss me off... there is just so much garbage that has happened in the past year with people who I showed extreme patience with, it just gets to me sometimes. I've put a LOT of work into this place over the last four years, and it can be stressful when the same people seem determined to see me fail with this.

I've cleaned up the nonsense posts including my own, because you are indeed correct. I have however left my more sensible thoughts on this, because I still believe that there can be no calendars without car owner participation.

Caminhead, you never got one? Which year was this for?

Post by: sunny1600 on 03:39:48 AM / 23-Jun-11
Ok good to know.

However I dont know about the situation (not the Jersey Shore one LOL) but couldnt you straighten things out then? Give that person a call or whatever. We are all fans and all trying to represent the S12's.

About the calender.
I will help you to get things going for the 2012 calender. I dont think it is wise to start a 2011 calender just to have one. They year is half gone.

I cant believe it is impossible to get 12 cars to feature the calender? I read your quotes and toughts about this and therefor the members of C-S12 should do the following thing. Take out your digital camera's and make some nice shots of your car. Submit your best to Arro in FULL resolution so not just a small photobucket picture.

If you have the pictures in October you will have enough time to get the Calenders made and distributed to the members that want to buy one I guess. That way everybody should have one before the start of 2012.

Don't look back, look forward. Thats the way the S12 lifestyle should be.

If there is an issue with people submitting pictures, should we really be that picky about the people that DO submit stuff as long as it's a different picture than the prior year?

Im not ruling it out. My biggest issue this time was not getting HIGH resolution images, and the second issue was getting just poor photography with terrible lighting. I had about six or seven good pics tho.

Arro I read your comments and I find them not worthy of an admin or moderator. You should give the right example as you are one of the faces of C-S12. If I'm right it is not allowed to post offensive comments regardless of past history. Or is it normal to post this type of comments in the USA?

Someone with balls. Finally!


Arro why don't you have a troll account to fight colin with, it makes the board look pretty pathetic when you are being the forum Hitler wielding absolute power. The feud with s12sil is so lollersnaps as well.

Great point.



I think all the rules regarding photos is silly considering we always are 6-7 months late or like this year gets scrapped. :(.



Jason, let me buy cs12 from you.

Andrew, there is no feud with S12silvia, Matt and I saw to that.  The only people who have called Ben or I nazis are people who got busted for shit (even you), and as far as Colin goes, he shouldn't be causing me any grief from now on.

As far as things "always" being late... it pisses me off when some of you say that, because you obviously are clueless. But then I think for a moment more, and excuse your ignorance, because of course you have no clue what gets sent to me for submissions... even if I were to tell you or show you, the larger picture would still elude you, because you aren't really faced with the task of getting it done.

Before I did the first one, I looked at a successful one on another site to see when they had opened submissions each year. October was when they did it, and they always had an abundance of submissions.  So that's when I opened ours. But submissions trickled in slowly... and come December, we were waiting still. By late December, we finally got some summer and springtime shots (wow... just plain... wow). Most of the email and PM conversations were about "I haven't had the chance to..." or, "I'll see what I can do..." so there it was. Or wasn't.

Year #2, I opened up submissions even earlier. Same thing happened. Last year, same thing. I CAN'T GO OUT AND TAKE PICS OF 12 MONTHS OF S12'S MYSELF. If anyone fails to understand this, then they aren't really sympathetic to the goal anyways, and just want to stir up drama. Which is what pissed me off about what Colin first said. He disregarded the facts because it suited him to, and what makes it worse is he helped with the first one and knows how late some of the better shots came. Basically he was the troll, hiding bullshit in polite words. My mistake was to bother to respond. Regardless, if people don't give us good, useable pictures in a high resolution, there can be no calendar.

Instead of offering to buy the club, how about doing something for it, and helping us get better photos for the calendar. In other words, start supporting C-S12 in a useful way.

I supported CS12 in a useful way by offering shit loads of cheap parts.


I just don't like how you talk shit to people on your own forum. Its not like anyone is going to stand up to you. Just think about it.

I'm not trying to stir up drama or anything, as I will probably be trying to take some pictures of my car for the calender.  I think our problem is is that there are not many calender worthy s12's left in the world.  It's just an 80s econobox that most people used to drive to the store, daily beater, what have you.

I understand issues with photo resolution, lighting, overall quality of the picture for a calender... but if someone had their car in the prior calender, I believe those submissions should be used as a fall back to "fill in" the lack of NEW submissions.

I've only jumped one person in particular, and only over the last year or so, because of all the backstabbing. And that won't be an issue anymore. Anyone else before that was disruptive and got banned by vote of the whole team..

Things should return to normal now.
