Submission
 
I have a movie - but it's 129+ megs
How do I submit?

jediaction 02-25-2011 08:59 PM

Thats a tough one. Just post it on mediafire or something and save the link on this thread

David B 02-25-2011 10:06 PM

All submissions are due tomorrow!

Submission Date Is Here
 
[B][COLOR="Red"]The submission date has finally arrived! Unfortunately, I didn't get the amount of submissions I expected. Altough today is the official submission date, I will still accept late submissions until I post that no more submissions are being accepted. I hope some of you will take advantage of this opprutunity! There is no definite ending time for submissions. When I say that is it, the window of opprutinty will be shut. Because today is my birthday, I am having a party, and I won't be able to begin reviewing submissions today, so I guess that means more submissions will still be accepted. Also, I announced it in my signature, but it hasn't been advertised anywhere else as far as I can tell, but if you posted something in this thread, it doesn't matter what, you are automatically entered in a best avatar contest as well! For those of you that entered, check back frequently to find out who the winners are! I will make sure that the thread intro post is edited to say that the submission date has been suspended until further notice![/COLOR][/B]

[QUOTE=David B;30649][CENTER][B][COLOR="Red"]ATTENTION: THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS, ALTHOUGH IT IS NOT HERE YET, IS RAPIDLY APPROACHING! IF YOU ARE GOING TO ENTER (I HOPE YOU ARE), PLEASE DO SO A.S.A.P. THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS FEBRUARY 26, 2011. ONCE AGAIN, I HAVE NO SPECIFIC REQUIRMENTS FOR WHAT YOU SUBMIT, ALL I WANT IS ONE ALICE ANIMATION (OR 2, OR 3, OR 4, OR 5, AND SO ON...) FROM YOU. ALSO, AS [URL="http://www.alice.org/community/member.php?u=2496"][B]arty-fishL[/B][/URL] HAD MENTIONED, YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO CREATE SOMETHING NEW, AND YOU CAN ENTER SOMETHING THAT YOU HAVE ALREADY POSTED ON THE ALICE FORUMS. I DON'T CARE! I AM BECOMING ANXIOUS ABOUT SUBMISSIONS BECAUSE AS THE DUE DATE RAPIDLY APPROACHES, MY SUBMISSION COUNT ISN'T VERY HIGH. PLEASE CONSIDER ENTERING! THANK YOU![/COLOR][/B][/CENTER][/QUOTE]

[QUOTE=David B;30785]Tomorrow starts February! You have only 26 more days to enter! Also, I'll probably begin reviewing the submitted worlds within the next week, so if you enter sooner, you will be able to breathe a sigh of relief when you return to this thread and see my opinion on your submission. Based on what I see in this thread right now, I should be able to finish up reviewing in about a half an hour.[/QUOTE]

Thank you.

reuben2011 02-28-2011 11:59 AM

However, by quoting all of the messages that were deleted, you just piled all the "clutter" into one giant pile within a quote. It still takes up a lot of space.

jediaction 02-28-2011 01:38 PM

who?

I understand your logic, but after removing those posts, an entire page was removed, and it never came back after I made that post.

[QUOTE=David B;31484]I understand your logic, but after removing those posts, an entire page was removed, and it never came back after I made that post.[/QUOTE]

By "clutter" do you mean number of posts or the actual amount of content? Because each page will always contain exactly 10 posts (by default), regardless of the amount of content in those posts. For example, if the first page has 9 posts and I post the entire content of "The Holy Bible", then all the posts will still be on one page.

I meant posts that I made to encourage people to participate. Now that the competition has technically ended, these posts serve no purpose, although, as I said in an earlier post, you can still submit until I say so.

David B 02-28-2011 06:57 PM

Submissions no longer accepted!
 
[CENTER][COLOR="Red"][B]As I had mentioned, I would eventually make this post, and the time has come. I will no longer accept submissions for this contest. It appears as though nobody took advantage of the little extra time I provided. Stay tuned to this thread for details on the winner of the contest. I will provide updates on the reviewing process here in this thread, and in my signature. So...what happens if you win? If you win, you will have your name placed in my signature for some time, but I will eventually remove it. Also, I am not sure yet what prizes I plan to give to the winners, but when I know, I will do so. The winning avatar design will have their avatar edited by me to have a little ribbon on it to show they won. The submissions will be reviewed by me, but I probably will allow all of you to have a little say in who wins also. I have no set date on which I will announce the winners, but when I do announce the winners, you will hear about it in this thread, and my signature will also have a little message about it. Thank you to all who entered! Also, if you entered in the contest, and have private messaging disabled, you may want to enable it so that way I can inform you of your success if you win.[/B][/COLOR][/CENTER]

David B 02-28-2011 07:12 PM

Review update!
 
[COLOR="Red"][B]I have downloaded the projects, and I am reviewing them.

Note To DOOM: Your link to the Ballz And Blockz Tutorial is broken, but if you post a new link, I will look at it. Until then, I can't review your submission.[/B][/COLOR]

reuben2011 02-28-2011 08:21 PM

Just to let you know, for my "Escape the Kitchen" entry, the version that I posted does not work for everybody (it causes Alice to say that an error has occured.) If the version of the game that I posted does not work for you, I will be happy to send you another slightly modified version (one which fewer people incurred errors.)

P.S. (If you get an error, it will probably be when you do something with the safe with the password lock.)

No more submissions for the avatar contest will be accepted!

[B][COLOR="DarkRed"]Out of the entire group of people that posted in this thread, I have picked out the top four avatars. One of these four avatars is certain to win. The selected avatars are from:

1.) Arty-FishL
2.) Doom
3.) jediaction
4.) reuben2011

To see the top four avatars, you can download the attached file, or you can jump around in this post and find them. I will review these avatars with great detail, and the one that stands out the most will win. These usernames will be posted in my signature until I choose a final winner. Good luck to all of you who made it into the top four! I wish all of you the best of luck![/COLOR][/B]

At least I was a semi-finalist. :p

jediaction 03-02-2011 02:51 PM

Avatars? Cool, so about the animation. Who won that?

David B 03-02-2011 04:48 PM

[QUOTE=jediaction;31541]Avatars? Cool, so about the animation. Who won that?[/QUOTE]

Since the avatars take less time, I am doing them first. Even I don't know who won the animation contest.

And The Winner Of The Best Avatar Contest Is ...
 
2 Attachment(s)
[center][b][color="darkred"]The winner of the Best Avatar Contest, hosted by David B on the Alice Community Forums is ... Arty-FishL! I know I said there would be one winner, but I liked jediaction's avatar as well, and I hated to turn him down, so he has won second place! Perhaps the reason why Arty's avatar stood out to me was because of the fact that he had a detailed version saved, whereas jediaction didn't. To be honest, I like all of the avatars I see on the forums, but these were the two very best that posted in this thread. If you are reading this, and your username is Arty-FishL or jediaction, please read on. Below I have taken both of your avatars, and added ribbons to them. I would very much like it if you change your avatar to have the ribbon on it! Congratulations to both of you! You both deserved it! As for those of you that didn't win, I am sorry, but if you uploaded an animation, you may still get lucky! I hope those of you that participated in the avatar contest didn't think my judgement was unfair. I will probably run this contest again later, but for now, this is it! Stay tuned to learn more about the winners of the contest! I will update this thread daily with new information about who is winning! Chances are, I will go through a process of elimination, and I will post which one has been eliminated. This process will continue until I have two left, and I will select the winner. Please note that this is only an option I have, and I may not do this. Another option available to me is to allow you (the entire Alice Community) to participate in voting, although I have found that this way isn't exactly the most effective. Either way, one thing is certain, and that is that I will divide animations and games it two seperate contest, so there will be two winners.[/color][/b][/center]

jediaction 03-02-2011 09:39 PM

Yeah. Second? Darn. Well, I didnt even notice I entered and I didnt think my Avatar was that great. I just wanted something that someone could recognize me and my name by looking at my picture. I will change it soon. Yah, I dont look like the guy in the picture, and no one here knows what I look like so [B]Star Killer[/B] is the best guess. Hahaha!

I thought your avatar looked pretty cool, and I felt guilty not including you as a winner. Good job!

P.S.: I like your avatar. Please don't change it too soon.

jediaction 03-03-2011 08:34 AM

Well, I added the ribbon so...yah

You didn't know you entered because I announced it after you had posted.

David B 03-04-2011 04:01 PM
