Being a little behind on this month challenge we are posting a quick little one. Make a Compass Rose - as simple or as complex as you like :)

Remember, if you want to share the compass rose with the community afterwards, be sure to make a png-24 transparent background one ;)

As usual, read the lite challenge rules to see if you and your entry qualify, start a new thread for each entry and have fun! The challenge will end on or about 15th February!

Best of luck to all!!

@Schwarzkreuz - Before you put too much effort into it you might double check that you are eligible to enter the 'Lite Challenge' because I think when you win a 'Featured Map' slot you are stuck with the regular monthly challenges from then on.

If you are still able to entry however, I look forward to seeing what you come up with because the more the merrier.

W00T. Its the 15th. Perhaps we can start voting tomorrow. There are a lot that I like and some that underwent amazing changes.

(and what the heck, I got an avatar out of it) :)

Shouldn't somebody be locking this one up about now? Not that more entries aren't nice or anything but I think we are ready to cast our votes and start on the next challenge :)

I'll lock them now and get the voting up tomorrow. Sorry for the delay!

No worries Torstan and I certainly wasn't complaining. Haha, far from it. I really appreciate all the extra work the admins around here do to keep things working smoothly and even have the little things like these monthly challenges. YOU ALL ROCK!!

GAH!!! Yesterday, for kicks and as a diversion I decided to make a compass rose myself. I even posted it elsewhere on this site...

http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?17648-WIP-Compass-Rose-attempt

And when someone said "you should enter this in the Lite Mapping Challenge", I was astounded by the coincidence. Didn't even look in this thread to see what it was about.

But, alas, I'm late by about three hours! :(

Next time... Next time!!!

My fault Nighthawk, I didn't realize the challenge had just ended when I told you to enter. Better luck next time!

Oh man bro...kinda reminds me of my life. I guess I'm not the only one who just misses the bus. Good compass btw. Looking forward to seeing you in the future challenges.

There's some kind of voting involved in wrapping this up, I believe.

... and we are quickly running out of February to start a February/March Lite Challenge.

[For the record, I have no objection to including Nighthawk's Compass since the voting hasn't started.]

Sorry - life got kind of crazy over the last couple of days. Voting is now up, and a couple of days in I'll launch the Feb/March lite challenge. Apologies for the delay.

I appreciate the suggestion, but I would have declined. A deadline's a deadline, and I don't want to buck the system just for little ol' me. Thanks anyway!

Besides, can we really trust that little bunny face? It looks hacked off! ROFL
