Ok, since things are winding down for me somewhat, I'm going to reopen the Of The Month contests.

Here are the rules.

1. PM or email your pictures to me. I'll post them WITHOUT names. Only ones NOT allowed to enter are the 1st place winners from last time. Please send specs as well and I'll post specs as well so we can vote on internals as well as looks!

2. Pictures MUST be resized to 640 X 480 (or smaller.) Those with dialup will appreciate it! If you're too lazy to resize then don't even send them. I'll delete them from my inbox faster than anything. If you need help, myself or others will help you. Don't get an attitude, just resize them!

3. I'll do the same three contests again. Non Spyder of the Month (any gun that is NOT blowback) Spyder of the Month (includes any clones that are blowback) and the Action Picture of the Month. I think that the season's gone on enough to have a few to enter. Besides, it's my favorite one!

4. Discussion will be allowed, but not in the poll's thread. I'll make a thread specific for that. Please don't reference who'd gun it is. Let's keep this to the guns alone, and not to the popularity of the person!

5. Winner gets bragging rights, and that's it. Unless someone wants to through in a prize or some compensation (but I doubt that will happen!)

I'll give you guys until the 30th, then will post the pics in a poll that will be open a specific amount of time. The winners will go on to the end of the year contest.

Have fun!

how many pictures can we enter?

You can enter as many guns as you want. But if you enter multiple pictures of one gun, only one will be chosen. Usually, I pick the first on the list.

As far as action pictures go, let's cap it at 2. That way, more than one person will win every time.

No problems! I'm glad you guys are liking the idea of it again...

For a complete list of entry rules, check the other "of the month" thread. It was built by all of us over time, so they're pretty good.

Just another week before I post the pics for the contests. I only have 1 or 2 for the action pics, so don't forget those! Also, not too many pics for the gun contests....

For you new guys, don't worry if you don't think your guns/pics are worthy. That's not the point! The point is that everyone likes to show off and this is a great way to do it. Who cares if your gun isn't as up'd or fancy or others?

Ok, I have approx 10 pics for the Non Spyder of the Month contest, 4 Spyder pictures (NEED MORE GUYS!) and only about 2-3 pics for the action pic contest - most of which are mine!

If this is going to work, you must do your part. Come on fellows, pm those pics to me! Oh, if you can't pm them to me, let me know. A lot of my PM space is taken up with some sale things....

I'm going to hold off on the posting the contest until next weekend. GET YOUR PICTURES TO ME!

Wasn't the poll supposed to be up Vike? or are you waiting for more spyder pics?

vikingshadow
04-30-2006, 11:33 AM
It's because I didn't get very many Spyder Pictures or Action Pictures, plus I had a request to hold off on it until next weekend so they could get their gun back. I thought since I didn't have that many, I could wait. Hope it's not an inconvenience to anyone!

Nader
04-30-2006, 11:58 AM
s' ok. If all the non-spyders pics are in, you could do that one.....without the other two polls.
Just an idea.

The non spyder one was the one that was asked to be held out on for awhile. I just didn't have enough for the Spyder one....

is there an oversized rule still vike? cuz i dont have the time to resize and all i have is a link. u remeber, it wasnt really that big.

Yeah, because although most of us have DSL or higher, several still have dialup and we need to think about them. It's hard enough for those guys to view those threads as it is, without them having to wait for rather large photos to load.

It doesn't take that long to resize. Someone on here said something about doing it for people if they couldn't, but I don't remember who.

640 X 480 is the size you guys chose a while back. Of course, anything smaller is ok as well...Thanks for the help Tiburn!

Hahaha I do believe there is an O there. In 2 years you have yet to get it right, haha theres still hope vike.



Also, I just noticed this and it should pretty much eliminate the need to resize pics manually. When you host your pics on imageshack.us, there is an option to have your pics resized. Click the arrow and click on the Message Board option which is 640 X 480.

or you can download the free Microsoft Power Tool "Image Re-sizer"

That adds a drop down that lets you resize images on your pc.

I am tired or I would give you all the link. Just Google it.
