2011-04-12 [Nioniel]: Yes, but I just created a photography section for it since there are now two participants who clearly wish to enter it. Please move your submissions to Easter Photography Contest 2011, [Marlene'Jacques] & [Mystin]. :)
2011-04-12 [Marlene'Jacques]: Ok thank you :D
2011-04-12 [Marlene'Jacques]: moved my photo entry :)
2011-04-13 [Nioniel]: Thank you, both. :)
2011-04-13 [Marlene'Jacques]: you're welcome :D though we need more entrys for this one
2011-04-26 [kamisch]: Darn it...I didn't finish by tonight :(
2011-04-26 [Marlene'Jacques]: the competition is still open....after all not fair if only one entry!!
2011-04-27 [Lord Josmar]: It's contests like these that help keep Elftown alive. You shouldn't stop participating in contests, it's a great way to showcase your artistic talent as well as competing against your fellow artist.
2011-04-27 [Alexi Ice]: Oh! Cute Bunny!! I totally missed him
2011-04-27 [Alexi Ice]: Aka - The way he feels is understandable
Keep in mind [Mystin] that the person who commented above about the contest staying open is not a mod. [Nioniel] is the only one who has that kind of control. Keep your chin up, hun. This is also a festival competition rather than an 'official' competition (which run much longer and allow for more participation.) While the festivals tend to be short and end very promptly.
2011-04-27 [Akayume]: Well, I think it is. If you think a contest needs more entries, link it in your diary or mood. Tell friends about it. It's silly to mope and complain when there is something you can try, even if it doesn't end up getting more people to enter. All over elftown participation is low, and the festivals have been neglected and forgotten as of late. I mean, I didn't even know they existed until this year.
2011-04-27 [Akayume]: That's my two cents. (;
2011-04-27 [Alexi Ice]: ...wait, what? Mystin was talking about it not being fair that although someone in the comments said the contest was still open, it was closed and the winners were announced before he was able to add his entry.
2011-04-27 [Akayume]: O.o? Mystin's entry is up there, is it not? With the rabbit? I thought the problem was that not enough people entered and thus it was unfair to close it so soon?
2011-04-27 [Alexi Ice]: The issue is that they announced the winner before he entered. His entry is there, yes, but there was no voting since it was already closed.
2011-04-27 [Akayume]: Ahhhh, I see. :/
2011-04-27 [Nioniel]: [Mystin]; I had closed the contest before you posted your image.
Firstly; isn't this submission a photograph that has been manipulated to look like a painting, and not an actual painting? In that case, I don't believe that it would have been eligible for this section anyway.
Secondly, as you already had participated in the photography section of this contest, you knew when the deadlines were. I had already badged Sera Torri before you even added your late submission. It's not very fair to her for this contest to take away her badge when she submitted on time and you did not.
2011-04-28 [Nioniel]: I'm sorry that you chose to remove all of your submissions from Festivals. If you had read what I wrote, I did not accuse you of anything, I simply asked whether it was a manipulated photo. However, the fact that your submission was not eligible had less to do with whatever the answer to that question was and more to do witht the fact that it was a late submission and that the other participant had already been badged as the contest had closed before you submitted your entry.
2011-04-28 [Mystin]: I don't have any hard feelings about this contest, I consider it successful to those who entered. I removed my submissions for personal reasons that I do not care to disclose. With that said anyone saying I have a poor attitude or calling me a troll need to leave me alone.
