    Okay so I came up with this great unofficial contest today because I'm just utterly brilliant.

    You make me an avatar, and if I decide I like it enough to make it my official avatar, I put it in my avatar space.

    Yes. That's correct.

    Just kidding. Winner gets $2.70 (to celebrate the new G5's) by means of PayPal for their troubles.

    Send entries to sam(at)starbuckssam(dot)com

    Suggestions:

    I love iPod minis. Make the colors rotate for me ;)
    I want my avatar to be as big as it can be within forum limits.

    Entries are due by April 29, 2005 at noon EST.

    I wonder if I'll actually get any... haha.

    All submissions may be used by me in any way I want. ONLY the contest winner will receive $2.70.

    I hope that you will get some entries. My wife is good at making Avatars, I will ask her if she is interested.

    Wouldn't you be most satisfied if you tried it yourself first?

    I umm.... did. Haha.

    No can do... I'm essentially paying the winner for the rights to use their creation if I pick it. It's not fair to do that.

    Thanks a ton!

    To make it an interesting contest, wouldn't it be better to post the suggestions here...? And let you have first choice, if you find some you like, then let other scavenge the remains... ;)

    $2.70! I could buy half of an iPod sock for that! :rolleyes:

    If you want help designing an avatar, ask for it. This "contest" just seems like a way for you to power trip while you demand the "rights" to all submissions.

    If you want to buy graphic design, you are going to have to do a lot better. If you want help from a generous community, ask for it appropriately.

    Sorry to rain on your parade, I do hope you find an avatar!

    Give him a break, will you... ;) ...post your suggestions, if you got any... don't flame him if you're not even gonna enter anything... and just don't provide your PayPal details if you should win, if you don't want anything... :rolleyes:

    I don't have any amitions as to win this contest, but I think it's fun to share avatars I made (mostly scaled and/or cropped with only minor touch-up), I don't even have a PayPal account, and I don't have any plans to get me one...

    I like what I'm seeing so far. The contest ends on Friday so if you want the 2.70 please submit to my e-mail by then. I have no official entries because I have no e-mails.

    StarbucksSam,

    I'm glad you like the avatar. I relinquish all rights to it.

    I'm too busy reading the forums to spend all that money, so please paypal the $2.70 to paypal@thelittleappfactory.com with reason

    See the Leukaemia research and the memory of a friend thread for the reason I chose this particular good cause. Maybe they need only $2.70 more to cure leukemia!

    I did you one better and made it ten. I decided to match your generosity - that was a very good thing of you to do.
