Remember "Caption This?"
« on: November 13, 2006, 10:38:11 PM »
I was a big fan of "Caption This" at the Sci-Fi Channel website (The Dominion). Who else here capped back in the day? No, not in the violent way, but in the funny, strike that, hilarious way. What was your screen name, and during which period were you most active in your capping?

Caption This was way more fun than it should have been, especially when the grabber froze for hours and we had to get really creative (that is, even goofier). I went by the handle of Goldfinger back in those halcyon days, (1999 - 2000) often late at night (Eastern time), capping real estate scam infomercials when everyone else had given up.

Look what I found: http://www.scifi.com/screengrab/note.html

Why is that still there? Razzafraggin' SciFi.

Wow, the only ghost left from the Caption This days. I feel sad looking at that page in all of its decrepid 1999-ness. I was 'Tmsrvo,' by the way. I was most active in 1997/early 1998.

WOW.

I miss Caption This!

I think I was bosko666

I use to love captioning Twighlight Zone episodes and the infomercials.

Yeah, leave it to Sci-fi to be either too cheap or too lazy to bother to follow through with anything...

Caption This was great fun. I was never hugely active, but would spend an hour or two capping back at my last job when things were slow. I would guess it would have been 1999-2000 timeframe. I believe I was "Nunyerbiz" there as well.

I don't really remember other "captioners" screennames (sorry), but I think I was "Lev007".  I still remember some of mine and other people's riffs, though. Especially when some of our jokes would overlap.

I was Pak-Man even back then. I wasn't a SUPER-regular, but I was on fairly often. I had a particular fondness for captioning Odyssey 2.0 (Or whatever it was called) because of the wonked-out camera angles. :^)

I was going by some form of "Crow" with multiple extra "O"s and my friend (and now co-riffer) Nykk and I spent an hour or so a day for while on Caption This thanks to the fact that our English class was all writing based for a long time, and we always had our papers done early, so wed just sit at the computers looking for ways to pass time.  We ended up mostly captioning re-runs of Lost in Space if I remember right.
