Greetings all and welcome to the 5th annual MONSTER MASH HALLOWEEN BASH !

I am your host music2u4u and once again, we are gathered to display our ghoulish render entries for the challenge. This year I have planned a surprize for you all. It seems things have been kinda slugish here in the challenge, and there have been some folks not happy with all the goings on and confusion since the new site took over, so to break the pattern of things I have decided to offer you all something special this year…

THE THEME WILL STAND….MONSTERS AND MUSIC. You must have at least one music device, an instrument, a radio, anything that displays music, and at least one monster. The monster must be humanoid. No tenicles or wierd stuff. A human with a costume on would be fine too.

The rules….THERE ARE NO RULES! That is correct, no rules, well…except a few. Here they are:

1- There must be AT LEAST 10 freebies in your entry all with working links. All DAZ freebies will count, as long as they have a working link.

2- Programs used to make your scene must be limited to, Daz Studio, Poser, Bryce, Hexagon, Poser Debute.

3- You can use any art program you want, but you are only allowed to fix poke throughs, add signatures, or add a border.

4- You can use any lights you want, and any content you want that came with your programs.
    ( These items will be neutral, and will not count as freebies or paid fors. So, you do not have to list them. )

5- YOU MUST HAVE FUN….NO BABY WHINNING…OR YOU LEAVE…LOL.

6- No limit on paid fors, you can use what you want, (but a link to it would be nice if it is from the Daz store.)

7- You can use any character you want, including third party characters. If they are free, you must include a working link to claim them. If not, then you must list them as a paid for. As always, all generation 4 characters are neutral and can be used. Their morphs, however, are to be claimed as freebies or paid fors. No limit.

8- Enter as many times as you like, edit your entries as many times as you need.

That’s it. Not to complicated, so disreguard the rules thread for this event this month, and we will see how it goes.

I AM DETERMINED TO HAVE FUN THIS MONTH!

I will need three judges to help with the selection of winners, and to help monitor the entries and check links.

Anyone wanting to donate any prizes would be greatly appreciated.

I will be donating a lot this year, so I will get back with you all on that.

The contest will start midnight tonight (Sept.30) and will run through midnight (Oct. 31)

With all that said….let’s get down and have some serious fun this year…

... LET’S GET READY TO RRRRRRRRRRUMBLE !!!! ....

( ask any questions you like in this contest thread.)

Your host,

music2u4u

as usual….“SCUSE ME WHILE I WHIP THIS OUT!”

This is the banner for this years MMHB. I have tried to add it to my signature here, but it keeps throwing the old Sept. banner on me. I removed it, tried again, and it keeps putting the old one back on. Don’t know why. The size is right, the deminsions are right. If any of you can figure out how to add it to your signature, please let me know.

Copy and paste this Banner image somewhere on you computer.

click “Your control panel” at top right of the page, click “edit signature” in the left box area, click add image, then click the browse button. Go to where you have the banner saved to and click on it. It should show the path in the browse box. Now click “update signature” and it will take you to another page that says “signature updated”. Now it should show on each comment you make here at Daz.

Mine updates, but it shows the old Sept one I removed. So, I have nothing there now.

Help?

Oh, yes: I’ve got a little list

Music did you tell it to remove the image before you added a new one ?

You have to remove the old one by clicking the remove image box,  say update signature, then add the new one and update again.

Did what both of you said…still shows the old one! Browser wash did not help. Remove, update,add, update did not work either.

Yup. I even went to where the old banner was, put the new banner in that folder, changed the name of the new banner to the old banner name, removed the old banner completely. It still shows the old banner, and it’s gone from the folder now…wierd!

I have done everything I can think of, even made a new folder, put the new banner in it. Still throws the old one up. Even edited the Http url for the actual old banner directing the path to the new banner, still no good. So…I give up. There will not be a banner this month.

I’m not showing any banner at all now.  BTW, the Oct gallery is active, banner and all.

EDIT: The archives area has been created.  If people want to start emailing the links for the entry pages from the foums, I’ll have someone start populating the archive areas.  Email the entry info to agsears at ovbi.org (yes, that’s Alexa’s address, she’ll be the victi—- err, person responsible for the task)

Kendall, I have a lot of the challenge months favorited on my pooter. I can send the links to Alexa if it would help. Lots of them!

I think she will have to put “archive” in front of the url though. Oh, and how do I get a favorited link copied. I tried to copy and paste one, no good. I will try and see what I can do.

Let me know.

That would help.  I am hoping more “surgical” links come in.  Some of our discussions generate excessive numbers of pages.  Perhaps if you send them to Alexa and post here we can have a “freebie scavenger hunt.”  Perhaps, instead of a required PA artist, we require a unique link to a previous “freebie challenge” entry grin
