It's time to vote for the theme of Contest 24. You have one week to decide and then we can all start weaving some awesome entries! Voting will end on Monday February 10th.

_____________________________________________
Contest Rules
1. Entries must be previously unsubmitted work. Entries must be at least 2/3 maille woven within the time frame of the contest. The remaining 1/3 can be any maille previously woven or any non-maille. Maille consists of any rings, metal or otherwise, or ring substitutes like scales or pop tabs. Non-maille consists of things like beads or wire wraps.

2. You can submit as many entries as you like.

3. Pictures and descriptions of the entry must be submitted to the contest submission thread before the deadline, by hosting the pictures offsite and placing the picture in your post with the Img link. Please don't make us hunt for your entry because it is posted on another site. (In other words, you need to use an image hosting site to place your picture in the entry thread. They are free to use, you just have to register with them to create an account. Some examples of image hosting sites are TinyPic, Photobucket, Flickr, and ImageShack.) Pictures must be a MAXIMUM of 100KB and a MAXIMUM of 800px per side.

4. The submission period for entries generally lasts 12 weeks. After the deadline for contest entries, the contest organizer will create a voting thread with all the entries, to be voted on by the membership. The entire membership may vote, each member having one vote. Polls usually last one week before the winner is declared.

5. The winner of the contest will receive a colored shield by their avatar with a number corresponding to the contest they won. The winner will also be granted automatic inclusion of their suggestion on the list of themes for the next contest.

6. The contest organizer may invalidate any entry. If you have concerns about your or any other entry, please contact the contest organizer with a PM. If the contest organizer deems it necessary, a new thread for public discussion will be opened.

Hate to be that guy, but it's machinery not machinary. Otherwise, lots of good subjects for this contest, hopefully I will have time to actually make something.

Anything you like that could possibly fit the theme. Yes, Water Earth Fire and Wind is one possibility. Or the elements of the periodic table. Or The Elements as in the weather. Or something else I haven't thought of.

I see. Thanks! That leaves the theme very open to interpretation!

So, should two themes tie, how is the tie broken? By the winner of the previous contest?

In the case of a tie, I will just flip a coin and pick one. That way we don't have to wait on anyone to make a decision and the contests run smoothly. Smile

Nuts! Looks like I barely missed submitting a theme to the contest again. Waiting for another go around then. Good luck to all and I hope a nifty/unusual theme wins!

Elements and Armour are battling it out quite fiercely.

We want folks to vote for their favorite, not "the runner up of the theme they don't want"...
A two party system does nobody any favors.

Very true. Especially since the difference between the first and last is really not very big at all. A handful of votes could overturn the current leaders. So we don't want people to assume that it would be a waste to vote for X. Because it could be the deciding vote!

(I wonder what a theme called "X" would produce?)

This will only ever happen when an option is made possible for poll results to be invisible until a certain date. But I'm not sure if that's possible with the message board software we're using.


There is no such thing as weave ownership. If someone produces a weave sample, they own that physical piece of mail, but not rights to the weave pattern itself.
