Starts:
Now
Entries Due: Friday 10 Jan. 8:00 PM NST
Voting Starts: Saturday 11 Jan. -No specific time-
Staff will choose their top 3 favorite entries, and then the userbase will be allowed to vote for one of the three.
SUBMIT YOUR ENTRIES TO KATE VIA PM OR EMAIL THEM TO [email protected] neocodex.us

What we need:
As a lot of you know, the site is going through many changes right now. That includes a new rank and some other titles that will need a userbar for our users to display. The ones we have are excellent, of course. But with the need for new userbars arising, we felt it would be a good idea to just get an entirely new set. That way they are a matching set. Let's face it, new userbars would just be great in general!

Rules, Requirements:

  • The userbar dimensions should be no less than 95 x 20.
  • The height is non-negotiable, however you may add a bit of length horizontally, but please do not exceed 100 x 20. (This would be useful for the longer titles).
  • All of the userbars in your submission must have the same dimensions.
  • Small animations are allowed as long as it's nothing insanely flashy.
  • The colors are your choice. However, you must use a different colour for each bar.

The titles you'll need for the userbars are:

Example of our current Userbars made by IcedEarth:
Spoiler


Prizes:
1st Prize : $25 CAD + Royal Paint Brush

2nd Prize : Royal Paint Brush x2 + $15

3rd Prize : Royal Paint Brush x2 + $10

A massive thank you to @pyke who donated the first place prize!

To enter do we need to create all 24 variations of the same user bars, or can we just provide a sample range (e.g. 3 or 4)?

It would have to be all of them, that's why I pushed the deadline but I can push it further if that's what the majority wants. I know it's a lot of work.
Weird, it appears as though someone tampered with my post as I was editing it. *stares at cody*

The deadline currently is Jan 10.

I don't think it's a timing issue, I just think people might be demotivated by the fact that hours of work may just go unused and unrewarded.

 

Anyway...

 

Good luck everybody who enters! I'm looking forward to seeing some colour changes across the board.

Is this right? The width is permitted to be between 95 and 100 pixels?

Yeah thanks, I was more asking if it was a mistake. I thought if the point was to make user bars slightly bigger then we'd be allowing a little more than a 5 pixel difference.

Gotcha, not sure on that one. The size looks pretty okay as it is now. Just my opinion, though :p

I have finalised my colour scheme. Back to the old days! Progressive shade changes through rank, and different colours for different sections! Whee!

I'm really excited to see the outcome, I like the idea of progressive shade changes.
