Re: Valentine's Event! Win nauseating stuff!
And it's closed. I'm going to be locking the entry threads now, and also this thread.

Once I compile a full list of entries, though, I'll post that in a new thread, and you can chat in there. This one will stay locked except for judging updates and then the results.

Please allow us a couple of weeks for judging, and thank you all for your excellent and varied entries!

In fairness yourself from the contest did take
Which caused my (only very slightly unstable) heart to break!

Your humor and with I enjoy day by day
So I still had to take just a minut to say

I like all the OMs - the Devs are cool to,
but given the option, I still would choose you!

Re: Valentine's Event! Win nauseating stuff! [WINNERS HERE!]
Thank you all for the wonderful variety of entries that you inflicted on my lucky colleagues!
We all had a lot of fun watching them coming in, and judging them at the end, and we'd like to thank everyone for their entries. We couldn't possibly give a prize to everyone, but every entry was appreciated.

Our discreet recording devices noted the following reactions to the entries:
"wow!"
"whoa!"
"awww!"
"ew!"
"ooh!"
"wat"

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure I caught at least one "why me?" and several unidentified sounds that could have been the sounds of Ringers falling off chairs.

A special thank you to those who sent things into the office, as well. It was a very exciting time!

*drum roll*

The Winner!

The grand prize winner for our overall favorite Valentine's entry was Ecastasy, with the Nemo candle holder. Congratulations, Ecastasy! Please post here, or PM me, with your choice of red familiar, and I'll get that delivered to you.

The Runners-Up!

Three pirates tied for second place in the overall judging. Each wins a sleeping piglet, and a portrait with their OM.

Hornitoad, for a very catchy song to Aphrodite.
Jsweetie, for an excellent spa for Hypnos.

Prize Distribution
Most of the prizes have now been delivered (apart from portraits). Aphrodite, Eurydice and Roparzh should be delivering their own. Madmarymeade needs to PM me with times when she might be on so that I can trade the ship deed. Everyone else's prizes were coordinated through me and have been delivered.

For portrait prizes, I suggest that you send your Ringer a PM outlining likely times that you will be on over the next week. They can then get back to you with times that might be mutually convenient for a portrait.

Congratulations to all the winners, and thank you from all of us to everyone who put an entry in!

ZOMG! Thanks sooooo much ^_^. I cannot explain in words how bouncy I am right now. I'll be happily awaiting the day the stork delivers a little red monkeh :)

This event was actually great, I was happy to do something I really enjoyed and it was a MUCH needed stress break from school. Luff to the OMs <3 and of course Nemo my sweetie ;D

Awesome event, thank you so much for hosting it, Apollo.

I *LOVED* seeing what everyone came up with for their entries. It was amazing and I am really impressed with the creativity of the mates in y!pp.

Can't wait to play on my new war brig. ('Fletch, it's NONSINKING, if you were wondering.)

Re: Valentine's Event! Win nauseating stuff! [WINNERS ANNOUNCED]
A reminder, in case people got so excited at seeing their names on the winners' list:

Please do not petition for prizes. They will be delivered tomorrow (Wednesday). The only exceptions are those who won portraits - those people should PM.

Re: Valentine's Event! Win nauseating stuff! [WINNERS ANNOUNCED]
 
and did nemo not choose favorites?

If the personal pick(s) were already covered by the overall prizes, I didn't relist them under the honorable mentions. The overall winner and runners-up would all have received honorable mentions if they hadn't won a higher prize.

Eurydice, Aphrodite and Roparzh are distributing prizes themselves - post in here if you don't get them within a few days!
Madmarymeade needs to PM me with online times so that I can trade the ship deed.
Everyone else should now have their prizes. Your task now is simply to find them. *grins*

Apollo's lost his internet access, but wants to pass on apologies that the Hermes dolls were left back at the depot rather than being put in the Santa Sack. This will be fixed as soon as possible!
