My fellow Kaleuns and Commanders,

It's time for the third sig banner comp of 2008! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/partyhat.gif (In fact, we are quite late for it!)

<span class="ev_code_YELLOW">How do I enter?</span>

Simply make a post in this thread with your chosen sig banner.

<span class="ev_code_YELLOW">Then what?</span>

Because we are late in starting, this thread for entries will be locked earlier than usual - at the end of the September. I'll compile all the entries into a condensed post and a voting thread will be started and you just place your vote for who you think has made the best banner - Simple!

<span class="ev_code_YELLOW">What's to win? </span>

Ah.. Well.. I'll let you know soon! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Might it be the famous Brighton Rock again? Or something new but equally as exciting? Wherever you are in the world, the prize really will be posted to you http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

<span class="ev_code_YELLOW">RJ - I've no idea what you are on about!

</span> Look at last quarters comp! (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/857101043/m/7501028956?r=7501028956#7501028956)

<span class="ev_code_YELLOW">I want to enter, but can't make sig banners</span>

Fear not! There are plenty of kind spirited community members here that if you ask nicely will make you one, based on YOUR idea. If you want one made, post in this thread with your idea and someone may help you out http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

If anybody would like a sig made up for their posts or the sig competition, just let me know.

I had a perfectly good siggy pic. But my daughter came into the room and said, "Hey Dad, send me some Silent Hunter pics and I'll make you a signature pic." So I did, not expecting much. I had a perfectly good and unique sub silhouette/sunset pic. Twenty minutes or so later she says, check it out on Photobucket and wow! She blew me away with this animated siggy pic. She makes a daddy proud.

RJ, I have a question about the entries. Do they have to be what you currently use as a sig, or can you just post a sig as an entry.

Case in point, RockinRobins as he said, made a real nice sig himself, but uses the one his daughter made for him. Can he just post his other one as like a screenshot, or does he have to use the one he wants to enter ? Did I confuse you ? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

In the meantime, if anyone else wants to enter, you are welcome to. Shall we say voting starts at the weekend?

Just curious:

how come is one animated sig accepted and another not? I thought just posting in the thread was enough...

and what about presenting the sig as animated, like:

Because RR's is within the size guidelines for Ubi sigs, as explained here (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/857101043/m/4451080164) at 313 x 120 pixels @ 43kb.

The other sig is 432 x 150 pixels but 165kb in size. The Ubi maximum kb size is 60kb

Tuddley should have sent you a PM regarding that sig.

If you can reduce it I can put it back in for you http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Just to clarify, my sig wasn't my entry for this quarter - I didn't have time to make anything up this time round. The sig posted up there is my default sig, and was actually used in the first competition, so don't vote for me!

My vote's Snakeyez!

Damn!
I need to quote Homer Simpson here:

DOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!

It's like standing in front of an open barn gate, shoot a football and miss.

I didn't see the 60kb limit, I just noticed the dimension limits and text limits.

Anyway, I got a PM from Tuddley now. And one from VikingGrandad too, and well, it's a color loss, but I have for now - with thanks to VG - used his rework for now. Untill I have time to come up with something better.

....So, when is the next competition?

I was trying to do them quarterly - what do people think about that? Is that too frequent?

Oh, Hurricane - You are very lucky, yesterday I went to the shop where I get the rock from, and they were closing for the winter season! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif (It is right on the beach front at Brighton, right by the pier)

The owner was literally drawing down the shutters having emptied the shop of the stock and I had to explain the Rock was a prize in a competition. He didn't even have a cash register to ring up the cost - he'd packed it away!

When I mentioned it was a Ubi Screenshot Comp he relented and let me in http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/partyhat.gif Let me have your postal address via PM and I'll send it off to you http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
