Simple Machines Smiley Contest

<< < (3/30) > >>

sodmanccc, I thank you for your views, and yes it is a skilled process to create smileys, however we have other competitions requiring other skills (and the testimonials idea, is a fantastic one I'll be sure to bring up); and they'll all start appearing spread over time :)

Spektral, we are indeed internally drafting new set, however we are interested in what the community can contribute. First we are in great need of smiley sets on the customization sites, and we want to see some nice smileys as we have old archives of very outdated images, and many sets online we cannot copy obviously for copyright issues. Second fold, we are open to considering a new default set from the community, obviously it has to fill a very specific need, however the prize(s) will be given regardless of whether we use a new default set or not. :)

Again so far the demo images, and some things are looking VERY nice :D

Good luck guys :)!

Contest that had no budget to over a grand budgets contests. so i hope you will take this constructive criticism.

contest is a good idea but i have a few issues with this contest.. is only open to those that make graphics and only to those that know how to and make smileys so thats like what 5% or less of the members here. so next is who is going to do them? the elite members here who all carry Charter membership which is the freaking prize? are you kidding me? sure thats a great prize if you already dont own it. if you do its nothing. its pretty easy if you spend a little time thinking about a good prize with out spending money something as simple as free hosting for 3 months is a fair and good prize and there's much much more things you can do hell simply put the smiley set on all new smf and i am sure this would be a REALLY great reward for them and make more people want to do it.  there is over 2,000 public free smiley sites, with more then 100,000 smileys.

i like contest and think they should happen but i personal think SMF would be better off with other contest that will build user participation help create a bond with the site its members and to improve smf.  Something as simple as  testimonials contest would be great SMF would get 100s of people that enter. there is over 2,000 public free smiley sites, with more then 100,000 smileys   i strongly suggest making this a testimonials

I hope you find this contribution helpful feedback.

Actually this is better than the last contest. The last contest was theming. With this contest you only need graphics skills. The theming contest you need coding and graphics skills. 

Also, if you don't like a contest, you don't have to enter.
