Banner Contest: Yes or No?

Post by Tiff » Tue Jan 20, 2009 12:00 pm

As some of you have noticed, there hasn't been a banner contest since last Valentine's Day. Due to the lack of enthusiasm lately and the lack of entries last time, I didn't bother this past Halloween or Christmas. However, I miss doing them, and I'd like to be able to pick the tradition back up.

So I open this thread to see what you all think. I'm going to keep it open until Friday. If you want to see another banner contest, are interested in entering one, or have any ideas on how to improve or perhaps make the contest more interesting, reply here.

Keep in mind I cannot afford to do real prizes. I still plan on creating winning avatars for the winners, and of course, displaying their banners for the corresponding month.

If the majority wants a banner contest, I will run it all through next week, with the winning entries displayed during February.

Let me know!

Joey: Yeah. It''''s like a cow''s opinion. It doesn''t matter....It''s moo.

I think there should be a banner contest for Valentine's Day. It would be awesome.

I always love a banner contest!

(I haven't been doing any graphics lately, though, so my entires will probably suck. :D)

if I had better internet connection I would love to enter a banner contest. Unfortunatily I cant at the moment. For someone reason its impossible for me to upload pictures.

For the future yes I would like to have more banner contests, though its going to be a while before I can personally enter.

Would you like to email them to me or someone else, and have us upload them? I've always offered that in the past with no problems.

I missed the contests; I'd love to see them start up again. It was the SMU banner contests that got me into making graphics in the first place.

Okay! I think we have a good enough turnout...and for anybody else that wants to sign up, go ahead.

ok I guess I should have asked if I could e-mail entries to you.

I'll remember that thanks :)
