Here are the rules for nominations.
  • You may nominate 1 to 3 of your favorite banners.
  • Regardless of which of the three is your favorite they will be rated equally, so don't nominate a banner unless you want it to compete with your favorite in the next round. Remember that while 3 is the maximum number of banners you may nominate, you do not have to nominate that many.
  • Do not confuse the voting by changing your nominations or attempting to vote multiple times. If I get confused by you, I will ignore all of your nominations.
  • Please identify your nomination by name and number. For example you may choose:
    kira_lacusXX-25
    wao-65
    (This is just an example of the format I expect to see. These are not my actual nominations. )
  • If you wish to add the image of the banner you are nominating so that other people can see your choice without having to refer back to the first post, that is wonderful, but please include the number so I don't have to refer back here and search for it. It would also be nice to include the artist's name, but number is essential! There are going to be a lot of nominations so please make it easy on me.
  • You have until 06:00:00 Wed Aug 2 2006 in GMT to nominate your favorite banner.
    At that time I am going to lock this thread. Check Time Zone Converter for information on what time this is near you. (In EST this is 2am Wednesday morning.)
    Shortly after that I am going to create the final voting thread.
  • The 12 most popular banners are going to be voted on in a simple poll that ends on August 6th after exactly 4 days of voting. Polls close automatically so please check the poll for information concerning when it will close in your timezone.
PS. Nominating yourself is a bit tacky, but not illegal. If you really think that yours is the best then go for it, but hopefully you'll nominate someone else also.

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...

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 )

Slugzilla-55


stjh-58

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)

Hellychan-19


And thanks to the artists for all the great submissions.

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...

Green²

14


Minoto

@ NoSanninWa
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 ... I mean it does effect everybody after all...
What's the point of being so secretive...

Now I really want to see more Kairin fan works by SaiyaGina and wao!

@BlackCatXIII ~ I think I'll leave that to NoSanninWa. There is an announcement on the main site, so I think the contest should have had enough publicity by now?

@ NightWish
Some people probably have the Forums bookmarked...

Also... FYI I don't have it bookmarked... and use the Main Index site to enter the forum (that way I make sure I don't miss releases)... and I never noticed any announcement about this...

The announcement you're talking about is probably the old Banner Contest Submissions Here thing...
Anyway... considering your argument... you have to be really obsessed with the contest... you know... to remember the date when it ends... and to make sure you go to the General Chat every day to check for updates (I mean this is a anime forum... non-anime Chat isn't exactly the main topic for most users...)
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...

This contest is for everyone to compete in, if you have either artistic or photoshop skills and will be decided very soon. Unlike our mascot contest we've actually got a schedule for its completion. Come and check out the contest here.

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
