This sounds pretty nice.
But how does this work, how is it decided who can start the new contest?

Oh, and Maneachicken, August has 30 days, not 31.

August Has 31. I had to look at my calender for it. And, you have to PM a Mod to get the contest.

Solemnity... Poor you. I'll consult Fanking and we'll make a decision.

Ironically I go back to school on the 31st. Isn't that exciting? Is it heckers liek.

IMO I believe ALL contestants should relate to the subject given - "summer" not "winter", because it may not be summer in some places, but I'm sure the contestant knows what they do in summer anyway. Otherwise you're just giving license for anyone to ask for a different title.

August 1st, 2006, 10:38 PM
So the answer Solemnity, is No. Sorry.

August 3rd, 2006, 11:59 PM
Ok I guess ill just make something to do with summer.

August 4th, 2006, 1:59 PM
Good. You do that! Oh well... Not much Interest this month. Many People are on Hols.

August 4th, 2006, 9:06 PM
I am thinking of entering this one. I jst have to think of an idea.

August 4th, 2006, 11:33 PM
Its not that tough if you find something that just comes to you, but when you have to do your own interpretation, its harder.

(I can't remember your old name Hyperion)

Hopefully More people will enter.

Corey was my old name. I changed it figuring that hey I don't everyone to know my name.

Well All I did this summer was work....and the b each twice. I HATE WORKING! But I get good money so it balances out I geuss. I'll probably draw something out and then do a pixel of it.

August 6th, 2006, 2:16 PM

August 15th, 2006, 7:43 AM
