Autumn 2006 Banner Contest Nominations
Welcome to the nominations phase of the banner contest. These are all of the entries. Rules for the nominations phase are in the next post, right after the list of entries.
Here are the rules for nominations.
Unfortunately a few of the banners were oversized. (One was actually 108KB large!!) I have reduced them all to the legally required size at a small loss of quality. My appologies to the contestants.
A lot of banners this time around. It was tough to pick, but my three nominations:
1> Green² 14
2> Minoto 36
3> steelbound 62
Everyone did a great job on their submissions. Too bad I could only pick 3, there are another few I'd have liked to nominate as well...
But they're all so good... *sigh* After much thought, I' going with:
Good luck to everybody in this phase. ^^
Really hard to choose from.
Let's see, I don't like faces that are cut upside and downside in a banner.
I don't really like blue-pink transitions.
I like a clearly readable "Animesuki Forums".
I prefer the autumn themed Kairin banners over the autumn themed banners over the Kairin something else themed banners. ( I think the animesuki mascot needs more presence in these forums but the autumn theme is important too )
maybe it is possible to reduce artefacts here because it'ld be really a nice banner if those were removed. ( maybe saving the uncompressed image with a jpeg yuv 4:4:4 quantizer -no chroma subsampling- will help to reduce artefacts)
And thanks to the artists for all the great submissions.
Here're my 3 nominations:
1) Hellychan - 19
2) SaiyaGina - 47
3) Green² - 14
Goodluck, everyone! :D
My three nominations, merely in alphabetical order ^^
1) Green² 16
2) Hellychan 19
3) lavielove 28
And best wishes to everyone by the way ;)
I don't have any special criteria for this... just chose the ones I thought were best... I personally like them all... However seeing so many Karin expressions is a little scary...Well anyway...
Could you or any other Admin please make an announcement like NightWish did for April Fools...It doesn't seem fair that only the visitors to the General Chat forums participate :mad:... I mean it does effect everybody after all... :mad:
What's the point of being so secretive... :confused:
oh my oh my... allot of really good banners out there...! but here is that i think is the best!:p
Some people probably have the Forums bookmarked...One last thing... HOW SHOULD PEOPLE KNOW THAT THEY HAVE A VOTE IN THIS ?????????????????
You don't mention anything about accepting user feedback...
All you say is that you are accepting submissions...

Damn, that's a lot of banners. All of them were great, it was hard to pick only 3 ^^
I personally felt that making an autumn banner that would fit in the blue template wasn't an easy thing, so my first criteria was a nice use of colors to keep it pretty while still showing some autumn.
1) ^Aya^ - 04
Pretty simple but works very well if you try to paste the banner on an Animesuki page, the font can be viewed easily and fits in well.
2) Deathkillz - 09
Nice use of the characters' hair to make the autumn colors fit in well. The background is good, not too flashy.
3) SaiyaGina - 49
Great style used to introduce autumn colors. The font is also original and clear.
I hope everyone tries at least once to put their favorite banners on an Animesuki page screen, to make sure it still goes well with the theme. It's at least a way to narrow down your choices if you were like me and loved at least 10 of these ;)
My three choices:
