Fourth of July Contest

| Jul 5, 2010
The results are in for the Fourth of July Contest we held this month. First, we would like to thank everyone who entered. And those of you who entered and didn't get in the top three, we are giving 10 blogger points for your time, effort, and good work! We got some really good entries this month, and especially for how short our contest was (about 2 weeks)! Ok, now's the time to announce the winner: The big winner of the Fourth of July Contest is...Drum roll....ERAGON.SAPHIRA!!!

About our winner, Eragon.Saphira

Points this contest: 88.5/100 (Record for highest score! The score she beat was made by Arin3 during our Arbor Day Contest)
Total points ever: 229/300
Average points points per entry: 76.33

Eragon.Saphira, an author of this blog and dedicated member, was the winner of this month's contest. She helped judge last month's Summer Contest, and she entered and won this one. It was very close between her and Arin3, who got second by a mere 4 points. Eragon.Saphira, in the 3 contests she's entered, managed to get in the top 3 of each one. She now has a record for highest number of points (88.5/100) in a contest, and she also is our only entrant without a creation to get a higher score than someone with one (and she's done it twice!). Without a doubt, her creative skills are beyond ordinary.

What the judges thought about Eragon.Saphira's entry...
"I liked the firework pattern very much. I thought the avatar fit the occasion perfectly and got me into the spirit of the holiday early."-SuperBen21

"I was really impressed how awesome the fireworks looked against the dark, starry background. It must have been difficult to make the firework display line up on four different sticker modules. Great job!"-CheshireCat150

"I didn't pick Eragon.Saphira because she is nice and an author of our blog. Simply, I found that her entry was perfect. Her page consisted of sticker modules. All the sticker modules had the same background- the Mars sticker background. This is a background everyone gets when they join MLN, so anyone could make something like Eragon.Saphira, yet they didn't think of it. That, of course, is not the only thing on the sticker modules. On the first three rows, she used a blue star and the Bio code Skrallshield sticker to make a big firework which exploded in the first row in the middle and moved to the left and the right. On the fourth and last row, she has used the "vroom" caption sticker to add some text, namely 'July 4'. In the end, I gave her a 10 out of 10 for overall look. Let's move to the second factor of judging- the avatar. She has used the 3 colors that are used to celebrate Independence Day (red, white and blue). I also gave her 10 for her avatar, because all the colors were used to celebrate this day. With a smile, I gave her another 10 points for colors, the third factor of our judging system. I was very surprised with the entry, and that was the reason I've gave her the best points. Because she didn't have a creation, we couldn't give the points for the creation. I have to congratulate you, Eragon.Saphira, with being chosen as the winner. I hope you also enter our next contest to make your score even better. Good luck!"-Sim533

Wow, that was a tough one seeing as I used up the USA flag for the Memorial Day contest.

@Sim533: Congrats on judging me that high ... :p and what did the last sentence mean? Could you rephrase that? @Arin3: Yes, it was a pain making the flag, took 1 1/2 hours. But, this was fun! Congrats!


Sim533 said... [REPLY]

Iamac1. Look at the topic, and you would see the difference between my text and the one of CC150.

CheshireCat150 said... [REPLY]

EVERYONE: Sorry, we were wrong about having "ZERO" entries for the gallery contest. As it turns out, we accidentally forgot to change the form so that the new entries would appear on a new page. We still have all the entries, and we thank everyone that has entered! We hope that we will get more entries. And for those of you who have entered up to now (July 20, 2010 6:33 PM blog time). You may now change your pages back to normal. Thanks, and sorry for the mistake!

Sim533 said... [REPLY]

I'm really happy to hear that, it was my idea to do a gallery contest. We would be judging as fast as we can!!!

CheshireCat150 said... [REPLY]

Yay! We got 2 more entries! Garnc and MrFree, you may now take your creation off your page, if you wish. Thanks for your entries!

Remember everyone!: If we get over 9 entries (which is our record) then everyone who entered will get an extra 10 blogger points!!

CheshireCat150 said... [REPLY]

Sim533 said... [REPLY]

Technically that is also a gallery module, so yes. Good luck troyergoldman...

Ok, thanks.

tradeylouish said... [REPLY]

I entered when it still said zero entries, and wanted to make sure the creation on my page being judged is the "Atlantis quad-cruiser", as I had a few creations on my page at the time, but the Atlantis quad-cruiser" was the only one on an actual (dino-bone) gallery module.

Sim533 said... [REPLY]

I would take a look if it is that creation we took in as your entry. I'll let you know.

EDIT: Yes, we took that in as your entry... You was the second one to enter... :)
