Title: Birthday Greeting Contest Results
Post by: Thantos on September 15, 2007, 11:18:03 AM
Simple Machines, would like to congratulate the following participants in our recent Birthday Contest (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=193638.0); karlbenson (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?action=profile;u=63186), nite0859 (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?action=profile;u=46625), geezmo (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?action=profile;u=48671), and zwaldowski (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?action=profile;u=72038)

And the winning entry comes from.... [insert drum roll]

karlbenson!! A double congratulations is in order, as karlbenson actually had two of his entries make it to the final round. Stand up and take a bow... :D

Because each forum is unique and tends to have different wants and desires, we will actually be including all 5 of the final round entries in the SMF 2.0 distribution with the winning entry as the default, although allowing you to change to another if you like.

In all we had over 65 entries. Keep an eye out, as you may see those entries posted soon, some are worth the laugh ;)

Congrats again winners. Job well done. 


QuoteSubject: On your Birthday...
We could have sent you a birthday card.  We could have sent you some flowers or a cake.

But we didn't.

We could have even sent you one of those automatically generated messages to wish you happy birthday where we don't even have to replace INSERT NAME.

But we didn't

We wrote this birthday greeting just for you.

We would like to wish you a very special birthday.

{REGARDS}

We better be able to make custom greetings in our admin panel, and not be stuck with these 5.  :P

I'm pretty sure its a case of 'default', but as ever with smf, very editable/customisable.

As with any SMF string you can still edit it manually ;)

I wrote that at something like 3-4am in the morning.
I found it quite amusing. But anything does at that time in the morning when your tired ;)

This is slightly off-topic, but I got my SMF t-shirt today.  Not only is it a cool-looking shirt, but it now gives me my card-carrying certification as an über-nerd.

Here's a pic of me sportin' my new SMF shirt that I won in this contest.

Sorry -- I don't take pictures well, and I need to leave to class.

Thanks for the shirt, SMF !!
