The hardest part about uploading an image is thinking of a title.

You still get frustrated when an upload is stuck on 29 votes even though the Readers Choice Gallery isn't as prominent as it used to be.

You always chuckle at the disparity between the amount of views to votes that nude images receive.

The first thing you ask fellow photographers when you meet them is whether they post on epz.

You are constantly surprised at how what you consider to be your least favourite image is received compared to what you consider to be your best work.

You’ve started using the word “tog” and “togging” even though you hate them!

You make it your mission to find out the real names of those who award you UA’s or GEA’s so that you can thank them.

Television adverts are no longer for making tea, but for checking the progress of an upload.

You have resorted to using song titles for your work.

You still get frustrated when an upload is stuck on 29 votes even though the Readers Choice Gallery isn't as prominent as it used to be.

You think you've come up with a brilliant title only to find you've used it before.

You have tried to give the site a break, but you keep coming back.

You upload an image early in the day only to produce a much better one later on and have to wait until the next day to share it.

You spend too much time on the site during work hours.

You have hundreds of contacts, but know exactly whose work is whose just from the thumbnail.

You've lost count of the amount of forum postings that suggest changes to the voting system.

You use more emoticons/emotion icons on epz than anywhere else including texting.

You can never remember which letters to capitalize in ePHOTOzine.

You still enter the Christmas draw with hope even though you have never won anything.

Any more?

Smile - you know what I mean

here's another one - you wonder who "user-removed" was, and did they leave or were they pushed, and how is it they managed to post in so many forum topics!

LOL.....I have been here nearly twice as long and would agree fully with most of those. Especially the first one. I have about 20 really good titles.....100 reasonable titles.....and about 1400 duff ones!!
