It is kinda amusing that the server would go out at that particular moment, eh? I made a double post somewhere because of it also. (Of course being a moderator I could simply clean up the mistake so perfectly that nobody can tell where it was.)


Important Notice:
While the poll is going to be over in about 8 hours, the results are not final until they have been vetted by the staff. xris is going to review all votes to make sure that nobody has done anything they shouldn't. Also, all votes by people who registered after the beginning of the contest will be removed at that time.

I'm kinda hoping that you'll eventually put up more than three banners, just like last time, there are so many good ones it would be a shame to limit ourselves to only three Besides a bit more variation never hurts

I'm happy to say that the contest has ended and the vote has been certified. The following banners are guaranteed a place at the top of our forum.

Third Place is a tie:
diabolistic - 11

wao - 39


Second Place goes to:
Prince of Chronics -28


And last, but not least, the prize for First Place goes to:
GG_Luna128 - 13


Congratulations GG_Luna128!

GHDpro will contact you shortly about your $35 gift certificate to Amazon.com




Now a small announcement:
This time, Wandering_Youth and mantidor both said were very upset to discover that the contest arrived while they weren't paying attention and missed their chance to submit banners. I was also rather diappointed not to get any banners from them and I'll bet there were a few others who would have liked to compete as well. To forstall such a tragedy next season, I'm going to give everyone a chance to circle their calendars. The Spring banner contest will begin on (or very near) February 24th. Not checking the forum frequently is no excuse this time guys!

Red face Yay, I won :P

Thanks to everyone... I never had won anything on "teh internot" so, I fell really surprised. All I can say is Thanks.

I'll tell the little story about the banners... I saw the thread 4 hours before the contest for submitting banners ended, so I had to do it fast.

I started searching for some nice images in my HDD, then I saw someone who said "somebody, submit a Tsukihime banner"... then I thought, why not Fate Stay/Night? So I made one with Saber... then, I really wanted to submit another, there wasn't time to make a completely new one, so I grabbed the cute image and made another...

Now, the problem... I posted about an hour before the contest ended, and without notice (or noticing? excuse my english) I cropped too much the banners, like 580 X 60!
Then it was the fastest editing on my life, and I finished, I think 20' or 10' before the lock.

I also made an Ai Yori Aoshi one, but I reaaaaaaaly hate that series, so I didn't submit that one :P

Like someone said, the image isn't too winter-like, but there is a really complicated (not so much) work with Photoshop Bevel and Emboss, Gradient and shape for the font.

Well, that's it... thanks a lot again.

PD: If someone wants the full images send me a PM.
PD2: I'm a guy, you lazy-people-who-cant-waste-two-clicks-to-see-my-profile.

I swear I just saw your banner at the top of my screen.

NSW please tell me I'm not imagining things?


Edit:

Spoiler for Well done Mr Paper, I quite liked this one as well. :) :

Nani? Sarc's is up there as well?

Yay! I tried to vote for Sarcasteak's banner while I was banned but NSW informed me it was against the rules.

So my vote wasn't needed after all. Well done Sarc.

Well done to everyone they were all very good banners.

I haven't seen that! All I've been seeing are Prince of Chronics' and GG_Luna128's banners, but I'm overjoyed that my Alpha banner made it on top of the site! I'm now one step closer to my much dreamed of YKK forum theme. ^^;

[Edit-]

Woo! Right after posting this my banner appeared. ^^

I agree, the new banners look great up there.
I'm looking forward to the Spring banner contest; I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. Not sure if I'll participate though... but we'll see.

And yes, great job everyone.

The forum is channeling everyone's wishes. I see Diabolistic's adorable banner in the header of the page. Osaka looks so settled in the top of the forum. Her expression makes me want to give her a cookie and pet her head.

Great job everyone and congratulations to GG_Luna128. Spend that coupon wisely. I suggest you get Stephen Baxter's Evolution. Naaaaahh.. You can borrow it from the library. Yeah, its a book.

Thanks, but it was all my fault, my fault! I did notice the contest starting but I let myself get caught in a bunch of stuff I had to made for the university and I completly forgot it, >_<! but it wont happen next time, I have learn my lesson.

and the funny thing is that it happened again! I was saving my vote to rescue any banner at the last minute, and I didnt make it on time... although my favorite banner made it ^_^ sadly I just found out Hellychan's banner only got 4 votes its not fair! These formums need more bishies in the banners!

Overall the winner banners are awesome, congratulations! next time hopefully Ill be back from this period of hiatus Ive been into, I want to be the adicted forumite I once was! but for now Ill be going away and probably will come back after the new year, so merry christmas and a happy new year to you all ^__^

Yep, remember NSW said it's possible he'll put other banners besides the top 3 on the forum. Which is good - isn't it boring to see the same 3 banners again and again?

I'm surprised I got through though. I didn't want to enter at first... it was a 45-minute job on the last day of submitting which I did hurriedly and ended up getting late to go to somewhere. Oh well, I'm not complaining.
Spoiler for for anyone who actually gives a damn:


I wonder who to put on the Spring one... though actually, I was hoping that after Spring at least to introduce a different theme rather than the seasons. Like, perhaps a techno theme for one season or an action theme or something.
