Thank you again to the helpful pirates doing the rendering and posting.


You're most welcome! It's been fun. :)

We've got a system down now where Patetch is doing the rendering of the final entries and I'm putting them onto the wiki that Guppy set up and started. Patetch, ShortyJack, and SilveRansom are all doing the renderings on the test thread.

Just to let everyone know, I'm going to be gone for *some* of Saturday, but I'll be home in time to add all of Saturday's entries to the wiki after midnight. So if you post to the entry thread on Saturday and don't see your name on the wiki right away, don't panic.

Just as a reminder, any entries that had problems are also noted there under your pirate name (or your account name if you didn't provide a pirate name).

There still seems to be some confusion.

Where to post
There are three different threads plus a wiki page that are connected to this contest.

First there is this current thread, which is in Events and is a place to ask questions concerning this event.

Second, there is a pre-entry thread in Mariners Muse where some of us will render your designs onto the 3d egg shape so that you can see what it looks like and make corrections before entering. It is found here:
http://forums.puzzlepirates.com/community/mvnforum/viewthread?thread=58453

Third, there is the entry thread, also in Mariners Muse. If it isn't posted there, it isn't considered an entry. It is found here: http://forums.puzzlepirates.com/community/mvnforum/viewthread?thread=58387
This really should be for your final answers, use the other thread for seeing what it will look like.

Finally, there is the Wiki page, where we have taken every entry in the entry thread, rendered them as eggs, and posted them alphabetically by your pirate name (which should have been included in your entry.) That is found here: http://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/Art:Design_Easter_Eggs/Rendered_entries
Please note entries that were not in the PNG format were not rendered. It is to your advantage to check here!

************************************************************************************************************************************************************
Correct graphic format:
Most programs have a "Save As" option, which you use to change the format, this is what it looks like in Paint:

Renaming a file from egg.bmp or egg.jpg to egg.png does not change it to a PNG file any more than calling a cat a dog makes it so :P
If you cannot get it in the right format, I will do it for you - all you need to do is ask.

An image "wraps" if two copies can sit next to eachother and you cannot pick out the edge.

************************************************************************************************************************************************************
Posting pictures:
You need to have a image hosting service such as Photobucket or Imageshack (both free.) I personally use imageshack and have found that it works best to use the direct link they give, copy and paste it into your post, then highlight it (mouse drag over it) and click the image button. Please note: it is not encouraged to use the YPPedia for image hosting unless specifically requested in the event info.

************************************************************************************************************************************************************
Finally please note: I am not in any way shape or form officially involved in the running of this event - I am not a judge or event runner - I am simply a volunteer willing to help, I didn't make the rules :D

This has gone on long enough.

The entry thread is HERE . If you do not put your eggshells in the right thread, they will not be entered.

Not to excuse myself, but to explain...

I'm wickedly tired and I was spotted so many entries (consecutive ones) I think my brain assumed that this WAS the entry thread.

Seriously, Apollo (and all event goers)...my bad!

It would also make it a bit more difficult to create your artwork. Earless is one thing, but headless?

We've reached the deadline, and I'll lock the entry thread now.

There are loads of brilliant entries! Thanks to everyone who put in an entry, and to everyone who helped (especially Silveransom, Guppymomma, Pletoo and Vixy and others) who helped with the rendering and YPPedia posting.

Last entry on the entry thread was Kassia of Midnight.

To the best of the knowledge of Pletoo, Guppymomma and me, all entries in the entry thread are now rendered on the wiki page.

Whew! :)

(SO many gorgeous entries!)

Talk about a booch! I intended to post my designs after I got off work, but was whisked away for dinner and upon my return forgot about the deadline. I am so stupid.

PS Have I mentioned I hate Saturday deadlines?

My wife still loves that one. ;D

Y'know... maybe we can do some sort of community thing for these eggs. An honorary mention, or "people's choice" thing, just for the wiki? :shrug:

Aye, I know, I've worked hard and diligently on them and fully intended on entering them but like I said, I got all excited about going out for dinner and then totally forgot. I thought I did well on my eggs this year, but its ok, they probably wouldn't have been chosen anyway. I don't do the right kind of art for OOO. Its ok, I've had fun making them and thanks to you two and the others I have my own little egg memories on my computer =)
