seekrit pic history

I don't know where everyone is coming from, but people are joining seekrit_pics more then ever (perhaps for Evangeline Lilly?). When the pictures went down I knew people were joining for the wank. This is prompted by all the emails from confused people asking me what's going on.

The history:
October 14, 2004
Some personal photos of Dom and Elijah were found here and made their way to LJ. The pictures are promptly taken down, and the only place to get them is here. I set up seekrit_pics, not expecting it to take off. The pictures are eventually taken down from snellios's journal. The pictures in question were the Croquet set and Elijah's BBQ. Giving 'OMGWTFBBQ' a whole new meaning.

October 18?- December 01? Roughly
Wanked. What a surprise. seekrit_pics surprisingly flourishes, people join and all is well. No one seems to have any objections (mainly because it was not known by those who objected to it). The feed is also very popular, but is taken down within a few days. Fandom divided into those who want to keep the secret photos up and those who want them shut down.

December 04, 2004
I get an email from Jason asking me to remove the pictures. I take down all the links from the community and remove them from my imageshack.

December 08?
Gingerbread photos are uploaded to the galleries. People save them before Jason can lock them.

December 14, 2004
Jason closes his galleries.

December 17, 2004
I finally get my dirty little hands on the Prague pictures and post this. There are no more pictures/ links available on the community. Although Jason doesn't want them on the community, I think it is unfair for some people to miss out because they stumbled upon it too late. I offer to send them via email.

December 18, 2004
Wank ensues from the 17th. I get a million emails, get stressed and post this at 4am. Bad idea.

December 20-30, 2004
People join to watch the wank unfold. I get surprised how much community grows. I make the community mod-approved application, because it should have been that way from the start.

January, 2005
People join community even more. My mind boggles and wonders where everyone is finding out about it from. My mind boggles even more that people want to join, when there are no pictures (that we know of) left. I'm not trying to put you off joining, please do. But be aware of that. I get emails from people who previously knew nothing about it wondering what the community is all about. I make this post.

March, 2005 onwards
gracheness gets sick of emails asking for pictures. She then refers to this post and notes that it says "email me for pictures." Please don't. The pictures are uploaded and the link can be found in the community userinfo.

Community is now open membership. Wank seems to have gone away.

May 20th, 2005
gracheness gets reported to LJ abuse and takes links down from the community permanently. Though that doesn't mean she isn't still hosting them.

yeah i got through this community somehow after seeing the keyword gay corn. lol. umm and still waiting to find those pics, oh well.

are you still emailing them? because i sure would like to see them weegirl86@netzero.net just in case :P
Haven't I already emailed them? I recognise your username. If you didn't get them, can you just email me again? I don't mind, and with all the emails I get about the pics, it's just easier for me to hit reply. Thanks.

They are a tad late to the party, but awww memories. I miss Jason and his lovely seekret photos.
*nods* Was I accurate?

Should I put in the bit about why wisteria_way is banned?

Im new... ish.. I joined about a month ago after finally finding this community! I'd heard about the seekrit pics when they first came out but people said don't ask, so I didn't. I've seen the Croquet set but not Elijah's BBQ and Prague. Is there a way I can see them?

In related news, some seekrit pics made their way to imdb in the past two weeks

Wow. Thanks for posting this. I had no idea that there was so much wanking going on!
Damn Trolls.
Lots of wank. Lots of trolls. Check this wank out. I didn't think it relevent enough to post in the original entry. Although it does highlight hobbsy/ wisteria_way's craziness quite nicely.

10 days... :D

I dont remember exactly when I joined this community, but I know it was early on enough to get the majority of the pics that came out.

I havent followed the wanks thoroughly that went along with this whole community I dont know, maybe that is a good thing?

I do however miss Jasons gallery being up, as I'm pretty sure alot of us do. I loved seeing the boys, "O Nat-ural", as I used to call it.

I think some of us are kinda hoping someone will "stumble upon" some new pics in the future? I know I am. Hence, the reason people are still trying to join?

I'm hoping too. I have some old ones I still haven't uploaded. More will come out, I'm sure. There was some rumour that Jason had just shifted his website. Sounds plausible to me...
Meh, I will say it again, I've been a connected fan in a previous fandom, and these people didn't act like friends of said celebs. Friends of a celeb don't get involved in these celebs' fandoms, except in rare occasions. They usually perfer to not know what's going on.

Groupies who like to pretend, even to themselves, that they're friends with their celebrity of choice, however... they're rampant, and behave like the above-mentionned people.

I've seen both sides of that fence, in the past. It's not a pretty place to be in, especially the people who "hang out" with celebrities, but are really only pretty faces that are an easy lay for them.
Word. I've decided I will worship you. *worships*

I was amazed at how all of them were heavily involved in fandom. There's a good example of one of the people in the pics admitting that she was just a groupie fangirl. Argh they annoy me.

Can I just say THANK YOU for providing these pics. People are dipshits. Period. I suggest you leave this quote with with anyone who gives you shit:

"Moral indignation is jealousy with a halo."
- H.G. Wells

*hugs*
Must be the chill.

Look Serendipity, I don't know you. At all. But you sound like a total asshole. "Brushing elbows with international celebrities" doesn't preclude one from being a

total asshole.

Which is very different from the women you are trashing. Who, btw don't even own pretension.
Argh! Stop fighting.

I am now scared of serendipity *hides*. Really.

I'm sick of fights. Hence frozen threads >_> If people want to fight about the pictures I won't freeze, but when it gets to people just attacking eachother- they can take it to their own journals.
I've been watching this site for quite some time and have just lurked in the corner. But I just want to say one thing. I am so sorry you guys had to deal with all this wank. I hope it dies down soon, because at the end of the day they're just pictures, and what's past is past. Anyways I send all my love to you all for putting up with this.

Lotsa Luv,
Jill
Hallo! I would be thrilled if you sent me the pics. Please, please kick 'em my way. You can find my e-mail on my userinfo. :D
And you can find the pictures on the communities userinfo.

Hmm?

Yes, it would be nice to know the secret location for the pictures...
