alright people, for the past four years i have seen the joy of christmas on UG through different users' avatars. i, for one, don't even celebrate the holiday and still love looking at the christmas-themed avatars. so, i decided to create a contest for holiday avatars! (i say holiday because i wouldn't mind seeing avatars themed around hannukah, qwanzaa, and other holidays of other religions whose spellings i brutally embarrass).

rules
  • any user can join
  • avatar must fit all size requirements that ug allows
  • avatars cannot break any rules of UG. this means no porn, gore, racist, or extremely offensive material.
  • the avatar MUST be new. do not use older/current avatars.


voting
voting will be influenced me (or other moderators who want to join) and the users. the two polls will be completely separate from each other. this way, we won't have a popular user (i.e. kensai) winning the contest because of their status as a user.


as far as contestants go, there is an unlimited number of users who can create an avatar and i will pick the ten best out of the submitted. if it turns out that there are less than ten, i will pick all of them and post them in a poll. so, we will use this thread for users to sign up in and i will post a different thread regarding the polls.

May as well ask this here too:

Someone please put a santa hat on the shampoo-ee's head.

Christmas, presumably.



I thought I did something like that a few years ago in the avatar thread :P

I say we promote using the winning avatar. It could unite us as internet users!

GOD DAMMIT! A few years? That's the latest I've ever been beaten by.


Sorry it's a bit rough. I rushed, but was beaten. BY A FEW YEARS.

Well my status is usually 'banned' so I wouldn't worry about that.

Also, check the group in my sig. We've got a group of making-yourself-a-christmas-avatar.

I'm gonna use this one, because it's better quality. But thanks iceman.

EDIT: Or not, because this one's 31.31KB.



Should be 18KB

Strangely enough, it's only 16 colours, but looks almost the same.

Dirge Humani made the same request a long time ago, I obliged, and never bothered to clear out my photobucket.

That came out pretty amazingly, actually. He should use yours.

If I can get CS4 working again, I will clean mine up a little and submit it.


Count me in.

EDIT: Would anyone want to help me? I have the 100x100 version of my avatar I made, but I cannot get it down to 50x50 with out terrible blurring. If anyone thinks thay can help, I would appreciate it a lot.
