SOTM 2008 - July (Seasons) - Voting Phase

!!!Welcome to the SOTM!!!

This is the Voting Phase for the July SOTM Contest.
Please read the following rules very carefully before casting your vote for your favorite entries.

The Voting Process - How do I vote?:
1. Look at all the entries in the second post, and pick one, two, or three that you like.

2. Take the number and name of the entries you like.

3. Make a single post with the number and name of the entries you are voting for.

Format for Voting - How do I correctly cast my vote?:

When you make your vote, please use the number of the entry and the name of contestant. Example:

I will tally the votes during the contest and once again at the end of the contest. The winner will be announced when the final day for voting passes.

Voting Rules - Things every potential voter should know:
1. You can vote for up to three of your favorite entries. You do not *need* to vote for more than one, but you can vote up to three if you wish.

2. All votes are equal. I will remove votes from anyone attempting to influence others vote choice.

3. Do not confuse the voting process by changing your votes or by trying to vote more than once. It's a simple format, and if you don't follow it, I won't count your vote.

4. You can vote for yourself, but we'd rather you didn't. If you are going to vote for yourself, you must vote for at least one other person.

5. In the event of a tie, there will be a second voting process. If that voting also results in a tie, the contestants in that poll will all be declared winners and will decide together what the theme for the next contest is. If they cannot decide by the time the contest begins for the next month, the organizer will decide based on community input.

6. To cut down on any potential cheating, any accounts registered a week before, and up through, the voting period are not eligible to vote. The exception to this rule is any account with an entry in the contest.

*I reserve the right to reject votes if I deem any account suspicious.*

Voting begins on Sunday, July 20th, 2008, at 12:00pm, and ends the following Sunday, July 27th, 2008, at 12:00pm.

The timezone I am using is UTC/GMT.

Use this site to figure out what time that is in your timezone:

That's it! You can comment in this thread, but I will not tolerate any vote swaying or contest rigging. Any suspicious activity will be reported to the mods, so please, keep this clean and fair.

Questions, comments, concerns, or suggestions about the general voting phase or how the contest is run can be directed to me using the private message function or to the SOTM Generic Discussion Thread. Drama is not tolerated, so be civil. *If it's a concern about a contestant or entry, please PM me before discussing it publicly.* Thank you.


Good luck contestants, and most importantly, have fun!

Ice Climbers and Riker have a collaborative sig? Is that even fair?

Anyway, I vote for these:

6. escimo
-Love the post-card idea, with the photos. It's very nice, and a great way to make me think of vacations at the beach.

28. crazyhorse
-Usually I don't like it when stuff is super faded, but the way you did it makes the sig seem very dream-like, which fits your spring theme well.

31. Ice Climbers and Riker
-Gah, I give up already. It's a masterpiece, what can I say? Quite possibly the best out of all the entries this month. It's small, but it packs a punch.

Great entries everyone! Good luck

3. Ichigo-Sora - Excellent lighting and I love the way you've positioned the scene and character. Lovely feeling of softness and it truly feels like Spring.

28. crazyhorse - Once again, the softness gets to me, and like already said, I like the way the sig is faded.

31. Ice Climbers / Riker - What can I say!? The animation is amazing and as small as it is, the details are well-down and I think it a beautiful sig. My personal favorite for this competition.

Well, it's not against the rules, so....
But, wait. Who'll decide the theme? I guess they have to decide together.

3) Ichigo-Sora

I love the originality and colors.

31) Ice Climbers & Riker

This is personally my favorite of them all not only because it's well-animated but because it shows a happier side of Ayu.

32) Solace

I love this signature because it shows a clear expression and emotion of the main focus, and not just someone indifferent.

It may be because a lot of the contestants haven't voted yet, but I love how no one is voting for himself or herself.

^ Very creative. Instead of using one, why not use all? Besides, it has Ayu in it

32. Solace:

^ Very spring-like feeling.

33. KasumiGirl:

^ Render looks really really cute.
