    The mods have voted and have made our choices for the finalists of the Best Static 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 several honorable mention entries 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.

    Static honorable mention:

    AlanAudio
    [​IMG]

    Flickta
    [​IMG]

    iMeowbot
    [​IMG]

    Flying Llama

    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

    This time was not:

    Which one do you like the best?... but ... Which one do you dislike less?
    :rolleyes:

    It could be pathetic but I don't like them...

    That's fine, everyone has there own prefs. It would be nice to be able to have the members vote on all the entries, but its not that simple. There are a enough mods voting that we get a good amount of diversity in the selection anyway.

    There were so many good ones.

    Well colour me chuffed. :)
    Of all the icons I did for that set, that one took the least amount of time. Bout 18 mins from creation to final tweakage.
    Will have to get my posting here up to speed.......

    I know what you mean. Out of everything displayed, I like Flickta's Olympic themed avatar best. The rest are not that appealing to me.

    Thanks!
    I'm really just happy that one of my avatars made it this far. There were some really great entries out there.

    That said, I think the dogcow reference is lost on a lot of newbies, which is really too bad (because we'd all be happier with a bit of dogcow in our lives).

    That's absolutely disgusting!
    Besides, it tastes like ostrich.

    And no, it's not a tigerdogcow, it's a dogcowtiger. :p

    The choices in static are better than the dynamic! Go Vector!

    Thank You, Thank You, Thank You All!

    Erm, you know, I would like to express my gratitude to all people who voted (even if accidentally) for my av. submission. I am sooo happy I was chosen to be one of the finalists and twice became an @honorable mention@ guy. I'd spam my way up to 500 posts to boast my av-making skills, but that's not a way of a real samurai. Hagakure, that is.

    It's a pity I wasn't aroun when the polls were open and the votes had been cast. But. I think everything went cool. I congratulate everyone who won the game, and...

    am going to update my tar!
