@bag@darkchylde28@drxandy@JamesRobot@jonebone@Kguillemette@Krunch@LutherDestroysTheGond@Makar@Mega Tank@NESfiend@RegularGuyGamer@Renmauzo@SailorScoutMandy 1ST PLACE WINNER BAG 2ND PLACE WINNER JAMESROBOT 3RD PLACE WINNER MAKAR ------------------------ Heya folks! Sorry, meant to get to this earlier, but... well, I had one hell of a day to put it lightly, haha. So, now that the voting has concluded, JamesRobot and bag are tied for 1st place, and SailorScoutMandy and Makar are tied for 3rd place, respectively. As such, here's the solution I've come up with to (hopefully) resolve the ties: SUDDEN DEATH VOTING! A couple new polls have been added. From now until 11/13/2022 at 6 AM EST, just about 48 hours from now, you all may vote for which carving you all like most between specifically JR and bag's, and which carving you all like most between Makar & Mandy's. This is the tiebreaker vote! Or, well, votes in this case. Now, in the event that at the end of that voting period there's STILL a tie/both are still tied, I'll get myself and a few other members of staff together (an odd amount, to ensure a tie cannot still happen) and we'll discuss which ones are overall our favorites between the tied carvings, and pick the winners that way. I considered simply flipping a coin, but even in this case I'd prefer not to leave it up to random chance if I can help it. I'd ask that @JamesRobot and @bag refrain from voting in the poll between their own carvings, and same goes for @SailorScoutMandy and @Makarfor their carvings, however you guys can of course vote in the other polls, so JR and bag can vote in the poll between Makar and Mandy's carvings, and vice versa. Anyway, that's about it, hopefully after this we'll finally have some clear winners, and I'll finally be able to dish out some prizes! (Also sorry about all the pings again, but we gotta decide on the winners here!) Also, real quick, while I have your attention, I added a THIRD new poll, since I wanted to get your guys' opinions on something: For future pumpkin carving contests, should I allow more than just carvings? As in, other types of decorated pumpkins, such as painted pumpkins. For this year I wanted to keep things fairly simple and allow only actual carvings to count for the contest itself, but I wanted to get some opinions on allowing things beyond specifically carvings for future contests, since I know some people, particularly a couple members of staff, expressed interest in doing that. Let me know, and feel free to discuss this in general outside of voting in the poll itself! Anyway, as another quick reminder to you all, here are the carvings you're all choosing between for the tiebreaker polls: 1ST PLACE TIEBREAKER bag JamesRobot 3RD PLACE TIEBREAKER Makar SailorScoutMandy ------------------------ The voting has begun! Please everyone vote for your personal favorite carving of the bunch! As a reminder, the only rules here are that you can only vote for one carving, and you CANNOT vote for your own carving, you must vote for someone else's! The poll will be open until 11/10/2022 at 12 AM EST. Whoever gets the most votes will win $25, 2nd most votes $20, 3rd most votes $15. Here are everyone's submissions. 14 in total, very happy with how many of you participated this year: bag: darkchylde28: drxandy: JamesRobot: jonebone: Kguillemette: Krunch: LutherDestroysTheGond: Makar: Mega Tank: NESfiend: RegularGuyGamer: Renmauzo: SailorScoutMandy: @Gloves@Jicsan@DefaultGen@RH@Splain@TDIRunner@Avgn Gamer@Mega Tank@Gaia Gensouki@darkchylde28@LutherDestroysTheGond@ZeldaFan042@drxandy@Aguy@JamesRobot@nesmaster14@spacepup@RegularGuyGamer@doner24@Richardhead@Kguillemette@DoctorEncore@Shino@Psychobear85@bag@Nintegageo@Br81zad@Strikezone1@a3quit4s@jonebone@SailorScoutMandy Welcome everyone, to the first annual VGS Pumpkin Carving Contest! I hope you're all in the Halloween spirit! The rules of this event are very very simple: If you'd like to participate, submit an image of a pumpkin carving you've done in this thread. Just an image will do, but feel free to explain the process by which you made the carving, how you decided on the design, etc! The pumpkin carving can be any design you wish, and the pumpkin itself can be any size and variety you wish. The only stipulations are as follow: The carving must be done on an actual pumpkin. You must have been the one to have done the carving itself. It must be a carving you made this month, October of 2022. As such, if you've already made a carving this month, but before this event started, feel free to submit it as it will still count. You may submit a different carving if you've already submitted a carving, however this will replace the previous carving you submitted, meaning you can only have one carving count for the contest at a time. This event will last from now until 11/2/2022 at 12 AM EST, a little over 1 week from now. Once we make it past that deadline, that'll be the cutoff point for new submissions. Immediately afterwards, a poll will be added to this thread, which will last from 11/2/2022 to 11/10/2022 at 12 AM EST, once again a little over a week. In this poll, anyone will get to vote on which carving is their personal favorite, and everyone will get to discuss the carvings that were submitted. The only rules here are that you can only vote for a single carving, and it cannot be your own carving, it must be someone else's. I'll be keeping an eye on the votes to make sure none of you try to vote for your own carving! After the deadline, the poll will be closed and no new votes will be accepted. Once this happens, the votes will be tallied up, and prizes will be dealt out to the people who's carvings received the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd most votes, respectively. The prizes up for grabs are as follows: 1st place: $25 amazon gift card or cash equivalent 2nd place: $20 amazon gift card or cash equivalent 3rd place: $15 amazon gift card or cash equivalent As an extra little bonus, here's a Sage carving stencil! Feel free to utilize it for your carving in any way you please. If any of you don't know how to carve a pumpkin, there are plenty of tutorials online to help you out, but the general basic steps are as follows: Select your pumpkin Cut off the top of it Scoop out the gunk on the inside, making it hollow Print out a stencil of the design you want, and tape it on to the side of the pumpkin (or use a marker to manually draw the stencil) Carve out the design you want, utilizing the stencil Put a candle inside the pumpkin, light it Put the top back on Done! Good luck, and I hope you all have fun! Remember that there are real prizes on the line here, so try your best! (I used a really tiny pumpkin this year for carving, which turned out to be a mistake since it made precise carving a lot more difficult, which is why this one looks a little funky, haha. Sorry for butchering your art @CasualCart)
