Weekly Smilie Contest

Just to let everyone know, I am having to stop the contest a little early. For one, I've only got one entry in the past two weeks and second, I won't be clicking much more, so before I lost all my credits I wanted to pass out the prizes to the winners. So, first this past week's winner and then the Winners of the End of the Year Smilie Faceoff!

This past week's winner (12/20/09) was Alba with this Christmas smilie: Congratulations, Alba!

All winning smilies were entered into the final contest and judged today (Monday, December 21st, 2009) and the winner of the End of the Year Smilie Faceoff! is Janka for her dancing smilie Congratulations, Janka!

Second place goes to Ella for her laughing smilie! Congratulations, Ella!

And third place goes to dimidola with his tornado smilie! Congratulations, dimidola!

Thanks to all who entered the contest!

Last theme: Christmas smilies

    1. Find some sort of Christmas smilie and either post it here, PM it to me, or put it in your shortnotes (with my name beside it so I know it's for the contest) by Sunday, December 20th (or a link to it). Do not post it in your pop-up because then I have to go into the source code to get the url for it!
    2. The person with the cutest smilie wins 100 Credits. (Make sure it's a smilie! - it has to have a smilie face in it and the smaller the better!)
    3. Contest runs from today until Saturday, December 19th.
    4. Contest is open to everyone at Yarold's.

All weekly winners will have a chance to win even more credits at the end of the year! All weekly winning smilies will be judged and an "Overall Best Smilie" will be determined in our End of the Year Smilie Faceoff! :grin:


    1st Prize: 1,000 credits - Janka
    2nd Prize: 500 credits - Ella
    3rd Prize: 250 credits - dimidola

The judge is a friend of mine just to let you know. :wink: It's nice to see more people entering! :grin:

dimidola and Chelo, are those smilies? :???: They're nice and I like them, but they are pretty big for smilies! I think they are animated graphics. I'd like to keep the contest to smilies only, please! Thanks!

I'm doing this same contest over at UniFaction, if any of you belong over there, you might want to check out the thread and enter there too. Please don't enter the same one you enter here though, OK? Thanks! :grin:

Tru - Sun Nov 08, 2009 3:20 am

Oh, that's much better! √

I'm sorry, but I thought I should say something 'cause I know you will never win with those. (I'm not the judge, remember!!! - but my friend, who is, has commented on the larger pictures as not being "true" smilies.)

So, I'll be back tomorrow and announce the winner for this week. I think you guys are making it very hard this time! Got some good ones! :grin:

→ And "hello" to the new people! (Not new to Yarold's but to my contest! :wink: ) Glad to have you! :grin:

[ Added: Wed Nov 25, 2009 11:21 pm ]
NOTICE: I am skipping one week! There will be no judging this week-end because of Thanksgiving and all I'm going to be doing. I just feel like 1. I need a break and 2. I will be too busy this week to do a contest and 3. if I wait one week, maybe I can get it done on time the following week-end! :grin: You can still enter any time you want from now until December 5th. The topic will be Thanksgiving. (Yeah, I know it's a little late, but I just wanted to do one on Thanksgiving.)

dimidola is the winner for last week's contest! Congrats, dimidola!

Now, I hope we get some more entries!!! :mrgreen:
