Hey all u talented banner makers u! I have an announcement. Thanks to the fabulous idea from Ms. Melanie (kira_ford5), we will be starting a banner contest.

Every month, we will have a benner contest for all our talented artists. It will start on the 1st of the month and end on the announced day of the month. We will have a theme each month for our banners to follow and rules to go by. The winning banner will be put in an official thread for just the winners and given major KUDOS by the peoples.

1.) Banners should be about 500 x 200

2.) You must use your original work, stuff done by YOU and no one else.

3.) Stick with the theme

4.) Make sure your entries are in by the deadlines or you will have to wait til next time.

5.) We, the people of the forums get to vote for our favorites and the winner will be put in an official thread.

6.) HAVE FUN!!!! :D BE CREATIVE!!!! :D ENJOY!!! :D

Any questions or suggestions, post them here.

We start the contest today.

Our first theme will be Emma Lahana, since this is her forums.

So, let's get the entries in ASAP. This contest will last until April (or until people stop sending stuff in.)

Enjoy!

Yeah. It can say anything as long as the focus of your banner is Emma. It doesn't matter the wording.

Great Job you guys! These look awesome!

kari, i am only one see your banner. i like your banner.

Razi
02/24/06, 11:45 PM
I don't know why I can't see it Kari. My computer must be weird :P

Keep it up you talented artists. I am thinking about making the deadline March 31st (4:00 PM).

As an FYI, you can have up to 3 entries, in case you want to change your other one, put up a better one, any other reason, etc. Just stick to the theme.

If anyone has sugestions for possible banner themes, let me know by PM or e-mail dancinsis930@sanbrunocable.com . Thanks guys!

Razi
03/07/06, 08:38 PM
Okay, I really don't want to wait to the last day of March anymore, so we will start voting this March 11 (for me, that's Saturday) and then, we will End voting, on March 31st. I know the thread has been a bit dead, but the art is fab-u-lous! So, get last minute entries in all you artistic folks, and start picking your faves!

Aww, I came too late.

Razi
03/14/06, 07:55 PM
Its okay Tifa. There is another contest really soon. Once we have finished the voting, we are going to be taking entries for the next contest.

-Razi

03/14/06, 11:52 PM
Do we have a topic for the next contest.

Kari
03/15/06, 12:52 AM
I was wondering, does the winner pick the new theme for the contest? I just thought that would be an idea, I don't care what happens, just thought it would make it interesting :)

Razi
03/15/06, 01:13 AM
Well, I think we were going to plan on having the next theme be Kirmmoy, but having the winner pick a new theme would be a great idea. I'll think about it.

-Razi

03/15/06, 07:57 AM
Yeah that is a pretty good idea Kari.

But I wouldn't mind seeing a Kirmmoy Banner contest either.

Kari
03/15/06, 09:38 AM
Maybe the round after this next one... ? :)

_yellowford_
03/20/06, 11:14 PM
Maybe it should be a monthly thing...with different topics every month.

Razi
03/21/06, 02:01 AM
Exactly. It is a monthly event. I will do my best to keep ontop of this, but I may forget at times.

I think this next theme will be Kirommy, but the round after that, we will have the winners start choosing the new theme.

-Razi

TheDarkOne
03/21/06, 11:11 AM
Well I'd like to know when the next one is and Kirommy themed cuz I got some new Kirommy art that has a slight kink to it that is well liked ;)

Razi
03/21/06, 11:42 PM
Sounds great. By the way TheDarkOne, I have seen your latest work on Ranger-Power. May I just say Fab-U-Lous!

-Razi

_yellowford_
03/22/06, 06:22 PM
Hmm, randomly perhaps we should do a writing contest. Some of us here are "photoshop deprived"...Although that might be a bit too much. :?

Razi
03/22/06, 08:54 PM
If we get enough writers to submit their work, we can make it happen.

If you guys have any fun ideas to add to this forum, send me your ideas. I am open to practically anything.

-Razi

_yellowford_
03/22/06, 09:08 PM
Yes, that might be a little problem (Me!!)

TheDarkOne
03/22/06, 09:25 PM
Uh I write a lot but I don't know if I could keep it approperate. ^_^
I can't wait to do the Kirommy I have one that I love and can't wait to post. I just need to know when, though I know I'll lose to Kari.

_yellowford_
03/23/06, 06:27 PM
Hmm...although the whole "exsistence" of the forum might cut in with the theme of the contest (if launched) may be.

Kari

I agree...all of them are magicians!

Hey!!! I have done nothing but defend you Travis, and this is how you repay me!! I am so sick of your behavior. Now shape up and stop acting like a fricken 5 year old. And if the first brick has to be thrown, it will be throw at you, and it will read "BANNED" in cement letters.

Your one of the main ones who wanted Razi to become admin in the beginning. What's with dissing her?
