Judging Has Commenced!

Back at last!!!

For the last few days I've been down in Georgia with my brother, helping him get his stuff packed and hauled up to Missouri. The trip back was tense because we not only had a big moving truck to maneuver but a trailer hitched to the back with my bro's car on it! Thankfully, everything went very smoothly and we made it home with no problems. I appreciate everyone's patience during that time!

Getting back to business, I hereby officially announce the commencement of the judging process! Not sure how long this is going to take, but I anticipate having the results posted sometime next week. EEEEE, the excitement!! ^^ In the meantime, I'll also be posting the entries received while I was gone (for which entrants should be receiving confirmation e-mails today).

Stay tuned!

Do we get to see the rest of the entries? :O

Hylian Reploid said...

Yes, I will have those posted shortly! Thanks for reminding me to mention that!

Did you ever get my contest entry? I didn't see it on the page, and I'm not trying to rush you, just wanted to make sure cause I didn't get a confirmation.

Hylian Reploid said...

I'm currently issuing confirmation e-mails for the entries received right before the deadline, so you should be hearing from me soon. If I don't see anything from you, I'll let you know, k?

poisonedsodapop said...

Thanks for your quick response! And I'll be looking for your confirmation.

Sajomir said...

Woohoo! I'll be checking back like ten times a day now :P

I still dont see mine or have a confirmation email. I sent it around 9:00 MST and i also posted it to my DA accout right after. Let me know if you still dont have it please!

Hylian Reploid said...

Don't worry, I've still got several left to process, so I probably just haven't gotten to it yet. I'll keep an eye out and will let you know if I don't see it.

Hopefully you got the 2nd one I sent in two hours before contest was over. I didn't get a confirmation email yet, so we'll see ^^;

So excited yet again!

Perhaps afterwards, when judging is over, you could give an ordered list of how everyone did?

Or perhaps even everyones (if you did it the points way) scores?

I'm so elated right now!

Hehe, when I first started the contest I didn't plan on using a formal scoring system, but now that I'm buried in about 200 entries, it's the only way to come out of this with my sanity intact! So, yeah, once it's all over I'll post a listing of everyone's scores!

Angelo said...

I only see my joke entry... please tell me you got my real one! :-(

Hylian Reploid said...

I'm on that one right now, as a matter of fact! = 3

bishoujosteph said...

Don't get too discouraged, I'm sure others haven't gotten theres up yet either. My second one I submitted right before the end hasn't been put up either, so it's not just you. I was kinda worried that it might be just me too since the recent update, but apparently it's not. lol

bishoujosteph said...

errr disregard my comment reply to angelo then.. cause I must have been typing when you posted it HR. ^^;

Hylian Reploid said...

LOL! I haven't come across yours yet, bishoujosteph, but I'll keep an eye out for it!

Angelo said...

:-D

Personally, I don't think it would be a good idea to list all the pictures by rank. People might get unnecessarily disappointed by the results. I think it might be appropriate to just list a top 5 or 10 or something.

Nobody wants to find out that they placed last :-)

bishoujosteph said...

Ooo, just got the confirmation email!

I kinda have to agree with anon about that. I was thinking "I feel bad for the last place person.. and omg if it's me.. being last out of so many entries would make me feel like crap." type deal.

Btw, was it a specific rule about the art being after Dec 2006? I recognize old pieces of Zelda art there, and I've heard a few people mention it. I mean, if I knew we could have submitted something older, I'd have more to submit ^^; I'm not like trying to rat people out though. That's not cool, but I was asking cause I would kick myself for not submitting other stuff too Haha!

Hylian Reploid said...

Yeah, that's a good point, so I guess it'd be best just to post the scores of the top 30 or so, eh? I'm afraid of being lynched as it is! ^^;

About older entries, there was a blog post that dealt with the issue. Entries that were made after the contest began are going to be given consideration over those that were not, to help keep things fair.

Sajomir said...

Yeah for what it's worth, I submitted my 2004 one as soon as I heard about the contest just to give the first entry ;)
I wouldn't mind if it's disqualified or knocked a couple "points," as the one I made specifically for the contest is much cooler.

I guess a top 30 might work, it's large enough to see the heavyweights against each other, but small enough that not making it shouldn't be a huge deal.

Maybe it's something worth putting a poll up about while you judge? Gives us something else to talk about ;)

Stephanie said...

Top 30 does sound good. Considering the mass amount of entries. Also gives more hope to a lot of us of at least making it into some sort of spotlight if we didn't win ^^;

And ahh, I didn't see that entry, apologies. :) Wow it kinda got out of hand there, didn't it. lol I was just curious myself because I didn't know it was more of a suggestion than rule. But I understand now, just.. a tad too late. Ahaha.

Good luck everyone!

Erm ... "Stephanie" is me.. I didn't think I had a blogger but it shows it up, I just usually click 'other'. -_-
