Ooh. Just sent mine in and recieved a confirmation note. Can't wait to see the others...speaking of that, It's creepy not being able to see other entries. It makes me a little nervous 'cause I don't know what I'm up against. It's also kind of good, 'cause this way if two people have the same idea, it's just a coincidence.


Yeah... I went with the private entries not just to keep it certain that similar ideas are mere coincidences, but also for the added bonus that without public posting there is no public commentary. Without public commentary no one needs to worry that nasty comments made by someone with a personal beef will have any effect on judging, nor can there be public praise giving a boost to their competition.

Don't worry, though - the minute I get the judging results tabulated (hopefully just a couple of days after the contest concludes tomorrow night), I will post the link to the entries. They are already being hosted at a super-secret site for the judges to access!

D'oh! I forgot we had to wait until the results came in. Well, I hope it's soon, because I can't wait to see everyone's great entries!

Thanks soooo much for this wonderful event, Fava!!!

Just a reminder that the deadline is fast approaching!

If you have sent an entry, but have not received a confirmation email, or if you have been asked to resubmit your entry in a new file type, you must resubmit by Midnight game time tonight.

I'm checking my email regularly now (though I may go to bed before Midnight) and the automated confirmations are definitely still working.

The deadline is in Pacific Standard Time (which is game time - you can type /info to see).

So far, there have been about a hundred entries, though several have been disqualified (pending resubmission) for being in the wrong file type - so please make sure you submit an appropriate image file!

Several entries have been document files - those can't be displayed on the site I am hosting entries at, so I cannot accept them as valid entries. If you created your entry in word, take a screenshot (you can use the printscreen button, "prt scr"), paste it into Paint or some other image editing software, the crop and resize, save as a jpeg or png, and email it off to me.

I just want to say good luck to all of my fellow contestants and I am looking forward (and holding my breath) to seeing the top ten. Hopefully mine will be among them.

I imagine there will be a few that are outright bad that would be discarded but the judges are going to have a fun but tough time deciding.

I didn't have anyone late. You were just under the wire.

For all those who sent an entry in late last night, your entry was received on time. I've sorted them, so you should have a confirmation email that your entry was valid in your inbox. I'd like to thank all who entered, I've been giggling for days at the things you've come up with. You've exceeded my expectations with your humor and creativity.

It'll take the judges a few days to get through them all. So relax, eat some jelly beans, and check back then.

For those who are curious (These aren't exact numbers):

    - There were around 110 total entries.
    - Around 20 Were DQed, half of those due to the entry not being an image file.
    - All oceans other than Opal had almost the same amount of entries with Viridian in a slight lead.
    - The most popular Ringers to dig up dirt on were Hypnos and Nemesis.
    - I laughed out loud at least 78 times and spilled my drink twice.

Sounds like there'll be some good competition then! I can't wait to see all the entries. :) Hope the judges are laughing just as much.

Fava has said it will take the judges a few days to decide, the deadline was the 18th and this is the 20th. They should have the winners in a few days.

Not sure, mate. There doesn't really seem to be a set time structure for judging on these things. I went through the other day and looked at other events. Some results came back after a week or so... or others, like the Dream Shack contest, is goin' on almost a month with no winners posted yet.

I'm tryin' to distract myself by just aqquiring trophies in-game. Got my bejeweled crab the other day. :)

There are only about 90 entries according to Fava that were legit, but either way yes should take quite a while to clean up all those coffee stains from dropping cups and spewing coffee all over computer screen while laughing.

The deadline was the 18th at 11:59. Thus judges wouldn't have gotten it till morning of the 19th at BEST. But with work and life they most likely got it the night of the 19th. I think you need to calm down and relax... it's only been 4 days. There almost 100 entries to go through, multiple judges to wrangle, and she has to organize the host site so we can all see the entries. Most familiar competitions take more than a week (see the song writing one that just announced winners that took 11 days to judge). I think it's only fair to give Fava a reasonable time. Patience.... yeesh, she was nice enough to put the time in to run this. The least we can do is be reasonable and wait patiently.
