Default Facebook page -- Upload your worst photo to rail pr*cks

A link to this site creeped up in my news feed today. Apparently some teenagers think it's funny because, you know, it's April Fool's Day.

Lightbulb Meh

By one of the Dark Lord's most active, and faithful minions.


Mike Antal -

Joe Hinson, if you're not April Fools trolling right now then this is absolutely pathetic. Everybody is entitled to their own opinion, but viewpoints like this are exactly why we're doing this; to see how many RP fanatics can or cannot TAKE A JOKE.

* * * * * * * *

Well Joe, I guess the joke is on Mr. Antal at this point - just off the wire (Facebook).


Mike Antal -

Alright, so who else got their RP photostreams deleted!


Yesterday at 8:16pm near Trumbull, CT


Phillip Anvilface -

Mustache King It was I think two years ago they did it twice for no reason


Patrick Lynch -

Jokes on them, for me they had no photostream to delete!!


Cousin Vinny -

Mike, they're idiots anyway, they reject for everything inculding random objecties that don't exisist, pleeeeaseee theyres a better website where u don't have to worry bout that bullshit

I thought a couple of them were funny enough. Considering that I waste several hours everyday putzing around the internet, it was worth a click.

Not sure why anybody is taking offensive to this?

Great post, Christian.

It's funny to me...it's like RP is some kind of private group that they aren't worthy enough to be a part of, so they hate it. If they don't like it, why don't they just go on with their lives and pretend it doesn't exist?

I'd like to see which one of Chase's photographs he was talking about. A lot of the RP hate out there is actually Chase jealousy in disguise.

It appears that "Vinny" is actually Matt Modica.

And, Bill is now "the Reporter."

Mike Antal -

^ LOL, says the reporter who runs back home to RP and tells them everything that goes on here just to keep the egos going. I thought RP rocked too, I had a decent amount of photos on RP. Then one day I decided to fuck with them, apparently they take offense and don't like to laugh much. We're talking about people who can't deal with comedy and would rather go ERMAGHERD did you see what so and so just uploaded on April Fools? We're not allowed to process jokes, BAN HIM! BAN HIM!!!, rather than accept the fact that by hosting a public forum for photo submissions, at some point in time you're going to be fucked with, embrace it or take offense and let it go to your head. This April Fools day stint wasn't set out to prove a point, the RP faithful handed it this page on a silver platter.

If Vinny is Matt Modica, then Vinny has photos here on RP!!!

Perhaps you should do a little research before calling out another member of this site who is working hard to improve their photos and get them on here..

Your right Matt, how silly of me to leave out the other part of the conversation.

Just when your photos get rejected ask the screeners its not like they are going to bite your head off, and if you can't get the photo you want on there just put it on something else Ex. Flickr, Facebook or even RRPictureArchives. That should solve your problem Vinny.

Also, they're the biggest gearfags in the world. The fact that they look at your EXIF data should be enough to prove that they care more about the equipment used than the actual photo. They should go back to masturbating to cameras and MTF charts; they're clearly better at that

You don't get as much feedback on your photos when they get up on RP. Not really worth it and not worth complaining over however I like getting my shots on there once in a while. If you can't get your photos on there don't fret I'm pretty sure there are many other sights that you can post your "Masterpieces" on haha.

And furthermore, Chase wouldn't answer a question from a "minion", and so far neither will you, but I'll ask you again, though this time a different question pertaining to a point you just brought up. Why does RP rock, and what has RP ever done for you?

Right, but I'm still not the same person as Vinny. Why don't you stop caring about what other photographers think and focus on improving your own work.

Because poking at the Dark Lord and his minions and/or disciples is a hobby of mine and I enjoy it very much.

Perhaps you don't want to be one of them.

I hope that wasn't a threat. I'm pretty sure that's a violation of the forum rules.

Only to your reputation in the railfan community - which at this point is arguably at an all time low.

A smart person would accept the fact that they got seriously "owned" and move on about now.

Nah, I'm not going to move on simply because of your one-sided opinion. Actually, I just reported your most recent two posts to the forum admins. If this site really is objective and unbias, then you will be banned (or at least given some kind of warning) for violating the forum rules.

Wow, just wow.

I think my favorite part is "because of your one-sided opinion" (emphasis added).

People seriously? This is obviously a group of dorky train geek teenagers (at best) with nothing better to do. Why are a bunch of grown men wasting time arguing with them on the internet over a website that nobody involved has any real stake in?
