2 and 4.. would have voted for 3, but it was a little to plain for me. #4 actually had some McMichael highlights.

I know I thought that the point of delaying it was to get number 2 to respect the rules. I support you if you file a grievance.

their could be a tie between 3 and 4.

Are we really going to allow someone to totally go around the requirements of the challenge??????? it is not fair. I'm sure that had JNewmant been allowed to make one out of any ricky picture, he would be at a better position to compete,


I think this is unfair. I'm surprised no one else is complaining.

#3 is now my wallpaper.

Entry 2 should be DQ'd. They didn't follow the rules.


They are required to use a certain picture for there wallpaper but they may use other pictures as long as they are not the main picture.

That picture wasn't given.

Jt's wallpaper will not be disqualified. He used the picture in the same fashion that entry 3 used it in, yet no one cryed foul on that one. The fact of the matter is that this is a competition that is meant to be fun and friendly. Should someone's work that they spent hours on really be disqualified in a fun competition just because they did not use a picture that they were supposed to use in a way that is considered "main" enough. It's really a judgement call. It isn't any different than entry 3. I'm sorry jnewmant, but if people had liked your wallpaper more, this wouldn't have even been an issue. I encourage you to enter the next contest because I really like your work and I think you are one of the better graphic artists we have here.

I think Entry 3 followed the rules. Can you not see the main picture in the background? It takes up the whole wallpaper. You're the one who came up with the rules. Why makes the rules if you aren't going to enforce them? If you think 3 didn't follow the rules, then DQ that one as well. 1 and 4 should win.

I'm not going to argue this, yes it was a tough decision and yes someone would be mad, the thing is that more people liked #2, why disqualify the wallpaper that won when the picture was used and it is a matter of opinion on if it was "main" or not. It is right by the text and clearly visible. Pretty much as main as #3 if you ask me.

For the tiebreaker, I would like to post the two wallpapers in the main forum, and have a re-vote. Would the mods be okay with this. It is Dolphins related.

No, it's not the main picture but, the "rules" of this "competition" have been pretty lax anyway, why change now.

2k5 your request is beyond a mods approval. You should PM Muck,Wharf, and AJ and ask them.

I like # 2 the best but I love Ricky so I am biased.As far the rules go,this looks to be a fun thing,maybe no rules next time,just some guidelines.I think they are all fantastic,even the plain one of Ricky,I couldn't do it. ;)

BTW I missed the voting,how long was there to vote? :)
