Sign up here for the avatar contest. Any avatar you possess when you sign up will become entered in the contest. You can also change your avatar, so long as you repost in the topic.

The winner will be announced on October 31 and will be bestowed with the prize of an Electron Charge bomb! (Prize subject to improvement) If you don't play Spiral Knights I'll think of something else.

Roco, I must ask, would you rather remain with the avatar you signed up with or switch to that avatar?

The first post does say to repost if you wish to change.

In any case, the winner will be announced tomorrow. You have right up until then to change your avvie as much as you like.

The Winner is Announced

Post by Ptep on Mon Oct 31, 2011 1:42 pm

The Winner is Announced.

But, that would be all too simple. Instead, I find it more suspenseful to explain my process of judging.

Roco's First Avvie was originally the winner, hands down. However, he changed his avatar, removing this one from the field. Had he not done this, he would've won. Not to say that he didn't. Just to say that this avatar was my favorite out of the four seen.

Fman's Avvie exceeds the dimensions of the userbox, which I find distasteful. Were it not for this, it too may have won.

Which left Jairo's and Roco's Second. Neither are quite what I was looking for, or what I expected to see in the contest. But of course, as judge you cannot pick and choose what enters your contest. So the question of exoticity-- (Another privilege as judge is that you get to make up words)-- remains. Roco's is of course the Punkin King, the Halloween character of Spiral Knights that I have grown to dislike. I have absolutely no idea what Jairo's is. It looks like a dog with a parrot in front of a mansion with a picture of an oil well on top. I like to see new things.

That said, I find it appropriate to rule in Jairo's favor. On top of the, yes, exoticity of his avvie, I find it very sportsmanlike that he would enter with no certain prize defined. Admittedly when the contest began I never expected to decide this way, but that's part of being judge. You can't predetermine the winner. Nor can you let yourself become biased.

Thank you everyone for participating. Jairo will receive a special badge and some sort of prize for something. Unless he wants the bomb despite his indifference towards Spiral Knights, we'll coordinate the new prize via PM and announce here the result.

Happy Halloween.

Lame, a bomb is a cheap prize. On top of that, you claim not to be bias on it, yet because of your dislike of the Punkin King you ruled me out. Which, in itself, is exceptionally biased. Kind of a funny contradiction there.

I didn't say that was the reason I ruled you out. I said I ruled you out because it was too generic, too..."seen," if you will.

Whine as you might, I see no reason either to defend my ruling or overturn it. All I can offer you is better luck next time.

He only did it because he doesn't actually want to give out a prize, it's called being cheap Razz
