Thank you! After a gruelling week it was a nice way to end it! Thank you also to the other entrants to the competition!

Although I am a little upset that my drawing was not only routed in the final competition but not even on the list, (*sniffle sniffle*) I do have the satisfaction of knowing that all three entries were sweet, it was fun, and although small, I think the mapping "challenge" contest is off to a great start thanks to you guys!

Congrats, Ravs. You rock.

Here's a thought - We may need to consider doing badges instead of the big icons. Especially for members like Ravs that is sure to win more than one contest. That way other members will be able to see just how stupendous some of our cartographers our. ;) :D

That's very kind, but I think if Don (or many others here) had shaken more than a little finger it would have been a different story. Still, I see this as the honour of taking part rather than the win.

Although..I do agree with Rob (Miller) that the badge is obscenely large and I would prefer something little or nothing at all (although I do thank Rob (Arcana) for his kind gesture).

Yeah, after seeing it in use, I'm not too pleased with the reward size myself...BUT...I won't be able to change it until tomorrow.

Its kinda temporary as it is. Right now i"m using Special Ranks...which of course eliminates the postcount rank thats automatic. I don't like that because if you're an industry pro or a community leader or something, the challenge rank would override that. I plan on retooling the forum to allow a "flag" for contest winners that wouldn't be utilizing the rank.

And Don...I "assumed" that A) since you didn't repost your entry when I asked for it and B) your entry was kinda in the humor/sarcasm vein that you didn't REALLY enter the contest hehehe. You know I woulda voted for ya though :* (Just kidding Ravs)

Oh...you know I was just kidding, right? It was just a goofy, sarcastic entry for a quick laugh. The above post was supposed to be the same, but perhaps my humor didn't come out right. Sorry. I was just joking. :) Any of those three sweet entries deserved to win! :)

Congrats on the win!

:idea: Just a thought... would it be possible to link the trophy icon to the challenge thread?

:)

Not a bad idea, but for now you can simply use the Mapping Challenge forum topic: http://www.cartographersguild.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=22

That way you can see all the entries. :)

I think we crossed the streams...because MY post above was also supposed to be humorous :D Maybe our sarcasm detectors were on the fritz yesterday?

An idea for the Challenges:

Just for neatness' sake, after the voting is complete each month, etc., I think all entries should be condensed into a single thread (maybe with a shortie intro of the challenge assigment by the site admin.). I say this because leaving 5 separate threads for each month's entries is a lot of clog--and when we start getting 10, 20, and 30 entries each month this will be an absolute nightmare.

Also, even one month from now who will want to read all the blah-blah we idiots post about this that and the other thing; we'll only want to see the entries and results.

PS: When is June's contest going to be posted? :)

Believe it or not, the clog won't get that bad. I'm basically running these challenges similarly to the modelling challenges over at CGTalk. I really like the way that community is run, and I designed a lot of this community after that one originally. If it gets out of hand of course, I'll change my mind, but for now I really don't think it should be a big deal.

And also...GET OVER TO CGTALK AND REGISTER! If you're a CG Artist of any type you should be a member. http://forums.cgsociety.org

I'll probably close this thread tomorrow or so.
