    Join the elite Time Stamp team for Saturday, 2pm, adventures!

    Come on down to the Time Stamp Café! Its the international meeting place.

    Overview: Participants are invited to make pictures for the Time Stamp project. There is no theme this round. Photograph whatever is happening, or make something happen. However, the catch is that your picture(s) must be made at 2:00pm, your local time, on Saturday afternoon. Post your pictures (up to 3) on this thread. Sit back and await fame and recognition, and maybe a spiffy new virtual award.

    If you're new to the Time Stamp idea here's the overview: here at MobiTog we have participants all over the world, in many different time zones. What if everyone made a picture at 2pm on Saturday, of whatever is going on, wherever they happen to be, and share that picture on Time Stamp. We should end up with a global snapshot of what is going on everywhere at 2 pm. This could be ordinary, humorous, puzzling, but it is bound to be interesting. The Time Stamp title comes from the metadata that is added to every new photo at the time it is shot, the creation date and time.

    Rules: Please see the Rules and Guidelines for MobiChallenges posted HERE

    • Standard Mobitog image rules apply. Images must be captured/created & edited entirely on a mobile device such as a mobile phone or tablet.

    • All images must be photographed and edited between 2:00pm to 2:20pm, local time. Any editing must be done within that time frame. In other words, don't rely on extensive image manipulation or compositing. These things are allowed, but must be accomplished within the 20 minute window of opportunity. Better to concentrate on capturing a unique moment at 2pm.

    Secret tip: This isn't strictly a photo contest. Good reportage or storytelling can get you lots of bonus points. Helping other people discover some place near you is another way to get bonus points. Make a connection.

    • In addition to the regular (up to) 3 images, you are now allowed to post one additional image, if you want to, to help "set the scene". This image should be described as "to set the scene" or "setting the scene", or "the location" or something similar, to clearly identify it because it won't be counted as part of your submission of 3 photos.

    • You are free to photograph something actually happening, or nothing happening, or make something happen, or to create your own image from scratch, as long as it and any added parts or layers are photographed within the 2:00 to 2:20pm window of opportunity.

    NEW! Time Shift Exemption: This applies to special events happening 2 or 3 hours outside the usual Time Stamp window. If you think the event is significant enough and that others would like to see it you can claim the Time Shift Exemption and move your 2pm to fit the event. This is a test to see how it works.

    Post your images to this thread.

    Closing date: entries must be posted no later than 2pm the following day (Sunday). You can post your images right away after making them but if you happen to be in a situation where this is not possible, you have 24 hours.

    • Have some creative fun!

    • There will be a brief Wrap-up, after each event to discuss any observations of things of special interest.

    NEW: Each week the person making the next wrap-up will be selected by the current Grand Wrapper-Upper.

    Time Stamp is hereby declared an acronym-free zone.

    Tips on setting alarms: you can use the Calendar app to set 2 alerts. I like to set the first alert 1 hour ahead in case I have completely forgotten (where's my phone!)(my battery is dead). The second alert I set 15 minutes ahead so I can get ready. You can create a second event at the same time for more alerts! Maybe set your alarm clock to go off right at 2pm to make you jump. Set another alarm to let you know when your time is up.

    If you would like to join in the fun, just post a message below saying "I'm in!"


    Past Time Stamp favourites, selected by the Grand Wrapper-Upper that week, are on display at the Time Stamp Café Gallery. You can also see a virtual representation of the photos in the MobiTog gallery section. https://www.mobitog.com/gallery/albums/time-stamp-café-gallery.447/

    I see, above, that Firefox wasn't a good choice to paste the text for the next Time Stamp. Lost a bunch of the formatting. It always worked well with Safari. It doesn't display the Mobitog pages normally, either. The usual 4-across photo gallery on the home page shows up as 2 & 3/4 pictures across. Weird.

    Thank you!
    I’ve been trying to transfer my text files from my Mac to my iPad to a writing app where I can edit rtf files. A few different attempts seem to be sending but the file never arrives. Sending to the files app hasn’t worked either.
    The plan is for all-mobile work on Time Stamp instead of relying on my Mac for certain things.

    A long time ago something happened to the link back to the Mobi image guidelines. Where it says “her”e. The last e has become separated from the link. The link still works but it would be nice to finally get it fixed. Do you know how?

    I have been having the most frustrating time transferring a perfectly ordinary TextEdit doc from my Mac to my iPad. I have eventually got it there via Dropbox but now nothing can open the document. So I converted it to PDF and sent that via Dropbox. Adobe Acrobat can display the PDF but I can’t select-all and copy the text and I can’t edit.
    This is what I have been routinely doing every week on my Mac without even having to think about it to set up each new week’s Time Stamp. Sometimes some minor editing is done to the file to keep it current. Then I paste it into the new Time Stamp thread in Safari and that’s it.
    On my iPad I can’t even find any way to open the document. I have a variety of writing apps to play with although any that turned out to have subscriptions I dropped right away. Adobe Acrobat can display the document but that’s all it can do.
    I never realized the iPad was so limited when it comes to text handling. I got RTF Writer especially for this purpose but it can’t open the rtf file from my Mac.
    Maybe with this flu my brain isn’t working properly.
    I also tried emailing the doc to myself and copying & pasting the doc into the body of an email to myself. Both docs look ok in Mail but when I try to transfer them the formatting gets lost.
    Part of getting this new iPad was the idea that I could now do all of the Time Stamp administrative work entirely mobile but it hasn’t been as easy as I thought.
    I’ve started using iCloud Drive for doc transfers, too. But I don’t want to move All my docs to the cloud, just specific ones.

    Fixed!

    I went to the guidelines page and copied the link, then went back and edited the post, copied/highlighted the entire word “HERE”, tapped on the symbol in the edit bar that looks like a chain link, pasted the link and hit done.

    I’m glad to have that detail finally fixed.
    What I’ve been doing lately is copying that Time Stamp Intro text and pasting it into various text editor apps on my iPad. With most of them the formatting is lost and those apps I delete. But now I have one that preserves all the formatting so things are looking up.

    I’ll try to be in. I have acquired a malady that sent me to the doctor and I spent yesterday on the couch, binge watching “Miss Fishers Murder Mysteries “. Perhaps a cat visit me on the couch. No, Brewery today.

    Oh yes, the Lunkenheimers finally posted a picture of the new arrival on Thursday. They certainly kept us on edge. Welcome to the world Leland Porter Slocum! (That the Dad’s last name, Lunkenheimer is the Mom’s maiden name)

    Wet car parks from me this week. I got bored after cleaning out the greenhouse and went for an aimless wander on the way to pick my youngest up.

    Nicola has come to stay this weekend (hooray!) and she wanted to buy some plants to beautify the walled garden at Delapre Park where she works on the gardens. So 2pm found us at the garden centre armed with Rog’s iPhone X. Why do I have his iPhone? Because, when I picked up Nix I left my handbag with iPhone, my purse, my house keys etc etc at my sister’s house.:rolleyes:. All I had, when we got home, were the car keys.:lol: Never mind, I’ll pick it up tomorrow.

    As long as you do it on a web browser, you don’t need any third party apps - just cut&paste, all the formatting comes through.

    Since you’re a staff member, Brian, you can edit any post at any time. So just go to the most recent Time Stamp (next week it will be this one as it’s now fixed), tap edit on the first post, select all & copy. Then tap Cancel to get out. Create a new thread and *paste* - everything will be there, fully formatted. :thumbs:

    The problem is you’re trying to do it in the app. If you must use the app, tap on *Web View* and follow my instructions and that will work as well.

    I love puddle reflections... the first one is great with all the flotsam up top and the lovely tree in the puddle.

    I played laser tag once... it was weird at first (pointing and “shooting” people) and then you get into it...which is even more scary to me, how normal that became. :eek: (obviously I’m not a gamer :rolleyes:)

    WOW these are crisp and clear!! :notworthy: Did you use the native camera app? I love the last four... the silvery tones in the mono photo are beautiful. Looks like a wonderful place to spend some time.

    I generally work in browser mode and I have used the copy & paste that way before but usually I’m going the other way when starting a new TS thread. For instance, my Time Stamp Intro is already edited to a new version for TS123.
