It's time to choose the theme for Contest 38.
Voting will end on Wednesday, April 11th @ 11:30pm ESTish (The Poll has been set to Auto-Expire in 7 days). Then we will start the contest.
____________________________________________
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.

Chainmailbasket and I had a wee bit of confusion over this Smile But rest assured we're on the same page now - Please disregard todays early aborted vote thread.

Voting will be for 7 days - After that we will start the contest.

djgm unfortunately hasn't been online in days, and didn't check the PMs I sent him... His "Gimmie" option thus didn't get included in the vote. -- I'll gladly offer him a freebie in Theme Contest #39 when we get there.

NEW CONTEST MOTIVATOR
In an effort to increase submissions and engagement in what was one of Lorraine's favourite parts of MAIL, I will be (out of my own pocket) providing the Winning Entry's user with a gift certificate at the Chainmail Supplier of their choice (amongst larger online suppliers, please) - There is nothing I could find in the contest rules that preclude this, though if anyone sees issue with this addition, please feel free to contact me via PM to discuss, and if need be, we can open a thread. Please DO NOT clutter this thread with that discussion


Regarding this...

I had a LOVELY chat with a member via PM regarding this, and they rightly pointed out that simply offering a cash prize to the winner is a poor motivation. And could, in fact, be demotivation.

They also suggested that some form of mass award for all entrants, and I fully support this decision.
To that end, I will be withdrawing my offer of the gift certificate for the WINNER of the contest.
I will, instead, ensure that some form of recognition or award be given out (ONCE PER USER) to each entrant in the contest. To Be Determined. - But it will apply/be awarded to/etc to EACH Entrant of the contest.
