    Thanks folks! As I mentioned in my Art Studio thread, a lot of entries are close for first and second place. We need people to vote!!!!!

    BTW, those are Hedvig's lips in the banner.

    I'm glad you like the layout of the voting page. I made the entries alternating light color backgrounds so it was easier to keep track of the lines.

    The winners for the first ever Because I Said So! Contest are shown below- and 4th place was only ONE POINT away from the 3rd place entry, (I can see why both of those are popular!)  so I am awarding a 4th Place as well, with a $5 Gift Certificate. All entries will be featured over in my Art Studio thread as well. Great work, folks!

    1st Place  The Shortcut  (luci45)           "You SERIOUSLY thought that was a good idea?"

    2nd Place  Mine Cart Race (Sasje)          "You SERIOUSLY thought that was a good idea?"

    Click here to see products used and story/dialog.

    3rd Place  True Story (Slightly Embellished)   (Lyam)      "You SERIOUSLY thought that was a good idea?"

    Click here to see products used and story/dialog.

    4th Place/Honorable Mention    Time With Dad  (RGcincy)    "You SERIOUSLY thought that was a good idea?"

    Click here to see products used and story/dialog.

    Looking at the voting and the weighting system (1st place 5 points, 2nd place 3 points, 3rd place 2 points, and 4th place 1 point to help determine tie-breakers) it worked extremely well. The number of votes for first place AND looking at the number of votes an entry got overall, correlated very well to the placed positions.EDIT: I will PM you with your gift card codes, we'll get that done immediately. Please contact FirstBastion with your product choices (remember, bundles excluded)  and THANK YOU SO MUCH FIRSTBASTION!

    November's contest is already off and running, be sure and check it out here! I used many of your suggestions  We do need sponsors for this month if anyone can chip in!

    Thanks to everyone who participated and voted! It was a very hard choice when it came time to vote - so many good entries to choose from and so many clever ways to interpret the statements. I feel humbled to appear alongside the images by Luci45, Sasje and Lyam - congratulations to all of you too! 

    Special thanks to Novica for taking a risk on a new contest and letting us all have some fun. And I especially appreciate FirstBastion's for his so generous support. I really like his products and am honored to get another one.

    You're so very welcome. Thanks for supporting it!

    I've been in contests before, and I know how much work goes into the art. I do want to share that all entries got votes.  Viewers really appreciated the humor, and I can hardly WAIT to see what you creative people do with November's statements!

  • jakibluejakiblue Posts: 6,812

    Congratulations to the winners! They were ALL awesome images and I had a hard time trying to vote LOL.

    Although certainly not required, it would be fun if (time permitting) the winners would (eventually) post any renders they do with FirstBastion's products over in my Art Studio thread (gets more traffic than these threads, it's the product showcase thread.) But also feel free to post any here too. I know PA's have fun seeing what folks do with their products. Emphasis- it's completely optional, not required at all!

    My studio is down (has been for three days.)  It started crashing when I downloaded the beta 4.9 studio, but it may not be related. (Although RGcincy had trouble too, if I recall?)  Also, a friend of mine who owns the Pensacola pottery studio  wants to buy my kiln (I had a brick and mortar Pottery Studio too) so I have to get a TON of things painted and fired in the next two weeks so I'll pop in and out.  I don't have time to piddle with fixing the studio right now.
