Just recently heard about this story...

On the QuakeCon front page you can see (at the time I'm writing this) pictures from last year's event, here:

http://www.quakecon.org/forums/showthread.php?t=8988

Obviously the picture of the winners is edited (you can see a white halo around the girl on the right). I've copied the images to another location in case QuakeCon takes them offline. Can you spot the difference? Wink

Frontpage image: http://www.oxeyegames.com/offsite/quakecon/aaf2.jpg
Original image: http://www.oxeyegames.com/offsite/quakecon/aaf.jpg

I wonder who ordered the edit, and who performed it?

At least i hope that's the explanation :D

Buuuuuulllshit!
Remember, fat people are people too, they just have a tendency of eating too much combined with a lower metabolism and crap body build.

real art looks like the mona lisa or a halo poster and is about being old or having your wife die and sometimes the level goes in reverse

That is terrible!  But kind of funny.  In a really terrible way!  (I'd think it was funny even if it were an Asian guy and not a heavy guy who was edited out, okay.  Lips Sealed)

Funny and sad...

Funny, because they changed a fat man to a she-male grabbing a guy's buttox (look at his face and the angle of the girl's vanishing arm). Sad because it's just sad  Sad

Still, they could've at leats done a better photo editing job Smiley

Maybe that is the same guy after the sex change he ordered with their prize money. He probably wanted an updated picture.

They have changed the front page image back to the original, with the comment "Mistakes were made."  Roll Eyes

EDIT: Like Derek said, this is funny in a weird kind of way. Found some people making more fun out of the "accident":





("Urtier" is the nick of the guy who was edited out.)

I dunno but I wonder if Carmack will be dressed as woman right away so they don't have to turn him into one later in order to attract girls in FPS... You know, save time and money and all... Smiley

Too bad they changed it back, after all it's easier to divide $15k between 5 people than 6 Wink
