    The mods have voted and have made our choices for the finalists of the Best Animated Avatar contest. Now it's the members' turn to vote for their favorite. The winner will be the entry with the most votes by the end of the voting period, Friday at midnight EDT. In case of a tie, we'll leave the polls open for an extra day.

    This was not an easy task and we have an honorable mention entry as well (see below). Congrats to all the members who entered the most participated-in contest in MacRumors history (over 230 entries). Thanks for your participation.

    Honorable mention:

    evil santa

    If you've made the list, feel free to update your sig. Once we have a winner, that member will be able to use the winning 'tar.

    Thanks again,

    D

    The cat is pretty funny.

    Overall, not bad animated submissions. I'm pleasantly surprised.

    anjaki! :D

    nice idea, much better than your first submission. ;)

    medea didn't have a bad one either, but i also based the decision on which 'tar i could stand to see in the forums on a regular basis. the typewriter 'tar is very dark, i don't think i could stand that for too long. although the swing 'tar has alot of motion, but i'm down with that. :cool:

    I would have voted for the iMac fade, but it faded to the MacRumors icon, and it was kinda out of place.
    Typewiter gets my vote.

    I was going to vote for that one, but I didn't because it jumps from the MR icon to the original Mac (it doesn't fade). If it faded then I would've voted for it, but instead I voted for stoid.

    I pleased to get a Honorable mention here & a finalist in the 1,000,000 catogory.

    I was going to one with the macroumors logo in it so he is chasing that, but never got round to it. :D

    My guess is that it's because evil_santa is a finalist for the 1,000,000th Post Avatar. The contest rules limit each member to one avatar in the finals.

    Wow thanks for all the support guys, I'm taken aback by it. Seriously, there were so many great avatars posted I didn't believe I'd be a contender in any way.
    Good luck to all the finalists and thanks.

    medea.

    LOL, yeah I even prefer the cat.

    Well, as far as my avatar goes, I made it really fast on a whim, just wanted to enter something. As for it fading to the Macrumors question mark, I did it like becuase it is supposed to represent what is coming next, which we all know is a G5 iMac, we just don't know what it looks like.

    As for it fading back to the beggining instead of just looping, I did it to reduce file size, adding more frames to fade to the beggining would increase the already big file size even more.

    As you can see the final is only like 32X32 pixlels, but the original was 75x75, I had to shink it to reduce file size. And if the animation seems fast, that's becuase I had to cut every other frame out to reduce the size as well. All in all it took me more time to adjust for the size restrictions than to make thing.

    The full rez, full frame tar is in the thread linked in my post

    Good work and good luck all.

    p.s. Grats on your new title edesignuk.
