Avatar Competition

Postby Spatula on Thu Mar 16, 2006 11:49 pm

It is totally NOT in my power to announce a competition, to be held on the day the book is released (whatever day that might be), in which judges will select from the applicants the winners of best avatar in the following categories:

cutest avatar (personally I do not think dogs should be allowed!)
Most piratical avatar
most creative avatar
best use of FSM (the religion in general, not necessarily an actual depiction)
funniest avatar

the winners of each category can then compete to determine an all-around best avatar.

The rules would be simple: have your avatar ready on or before the day the book is released, and then, to enter, post at least once in this thread. As for who judges and all THOSE details, ask a mod? I dunno, like I said, I can NOT actually do this at all. maybe I should make it a suggestion?

Cool idea. Though this forum is rather limited in membership (last time I checked), so how about making it open to all the world?

YOU are the one with the power, and the voodoo and all that, so whatever rules you want! I just thought it could be a fun way to help promote the book.

what if they change the release date on the current release date? I'm starting to believe they would...

How about cats? Would cats be allowed? What would the prize be? Tuna fish?

Are squirrels allowed? No particular reason... erm, my friend wants to know (he has a squirrel avatar)

Only angry looking ones, or cats with 'stuff' on them should be considered.

My cat is wearing full pirate regalia, but it's all black and mixes in with his fur, so you can't see it very well. He's also very animated at suppertime, so I think he deserves first place.

nice try, but if you had an invisible avatar, there'd still be an empty space. you know, how it makes your post take up more space even though its only one line of text.

clever, but futile.

It is totally NOT in my power to judge a competition, to be held on the day the book is released (which is today). So, me being NOT the judge, I agree with aquazoo that since she is the cutest and ALSO looks like an angry cat with a lace doily on it's head, AQUAZOO WINS!!!!!

YAAAAAAYYYY!!!!

Tell her what she wins, DaveL!

okay, Aqua wins the cutest competition, but what about the other catagories?

I think there should be

best animal
best photoshopped/computer generated
best 18th century ship
best greek bust
best creepy avatar
best no avatar.

DD, I think your avatar should go in photoshopped.

and cropping dosen't count as being photoshopped.
