I have a question. Are entries disqualified (or counted less) if the text isn't quite verbatim? Like, a lot of entries (including mine) say "Sailor Moon Uncensored" with no "Forums." And on the url, I didn't include the "http://" in one. Is it still OK like that?
Things I think Are Funny Early in the Morning: If Batman were a Smurf: "Quick, Robin! We must smurf down to the Batcave and smurf the Batplane! Then we must smurf the batsmurf so we can smurf where the Joker is smurfing!"

The Croonerism Spate (explanations upon request)
Be careful with this one, there is a bit of a pun involved. Dr. Spooner described his visit to a castle: "In the center of the fortress was the Palace Court. The gated entrance to this area was the court palace."

It's okay if "Forums" is left off, or if you don't have the "http". Good question. XD

Joey: The question is, Rachel, does he like you? ''Cuz if he doesn''t, then it''s all just a moo point.
Rachel: Huh...a...moo point?
Joey: Yeah. It''''s like a cow''s opinion. It doesn''t matter....It''s moo.

When I last spoke to Tiffu, she was working on the prizes for the contest and then had to go to work on some other stuff. I imagine if she finishes up the awards tonight, they'll be posted then. If not, then sometime tomorrow.

Congrats!

I also have a special award...for just about every banner contest, member/former chibi-mod ParaKiss_Groupie helps me judge them. This contest was particularily hard becuase of a certain member's creativity, but small flaws in design.

Neon Heart , your banners were very creative, and I adored the ideas you had behind them. So you are the first recipient of the Kisu's Choice award, an honorable mention designed for those who have great ideas, but require just a little more work in the design aspect of those ideas. Congratulations! Parakiss will post your avatar in reply to this.

The Kisu's Choice award will now be a part of every future contest.

Thanks to all of those who participated, and congrats to those who won!

EDIT: PLEASE let me know when you've picked up your avatar(s), so I can delete them from my personal site.

Hee. Indeed, Neon Heart is the Winner of the first Kisu's Choice award!

I really loved all your banners. They're very creative, and you put a lot of work into them. I think that, with practice, you could become a really great graphic artist. So, it is with much pride that I present you with this:

Again, excellent work, and I look forward to seeing more of your work in the future.
