    It will be sent as a pm from one of the sponsors or sent directly through the DAZ store, just be patient ;-) Some sponsors, like Ken, is usually very busy. 

  • ToyenToyen Posts: 1,759

    I see thanks! I was just wondering if I needed to contact somebody or not.

  • luci45luci45 Posts: 2,400

    Congrats to the winners! Zawarkal, I'm glad to see you got a first place - about time! Totte's roadpainter and Barbult's Love Boat Launcher are true RRRR classics! Congrats to the two RRRR newbies also. 

    I am so happy to lose a LB point and also happy to see Totte with two! Hehe. 

    Thank you Totte and sponsors for another fun contest. I look forward to the next one as always.

    Excellent renders everyone, very well done.My personal favorite is totte's roadpainters paintbrush :)

    Congrats to the winners!!

  • TotteTotte Posts: 11,824

    The idea for the Roadpainter's paintbrush comes from a very old clip from the first season of "Not the nine o'clock news" where Rowan Atkinson was in, same season where he sneezes over a pizza as a pizza baker shouting "Una Pizza Capricosa" ....   "With extra Mozarella"..

    Oh wow, my first time entering and already I have won third place. laugh

    I am so very happy about this. Thank you to everyone who voted for me and congratulations to the other winners.

    This was fun.

    Sigrid

    Well deserved wins!  And to everyone else, you were right up there too. 

  • barbultbarbult Posts: 16,129

    This was an entertaining contest, with a fun theme. Totte, we really appreciate all the work you do behind the scenes to keep this organized and going each month! It is always good to see new people join the fun and win prizes, too. Thank you, RRRR friends, for the votes for the poor hapless Muck! Zawarkal, is a unique artist; I'm glad to see her win big this time with a really great entry. Totte won with two of my favorites, too; both were brilliant and hilarious.Congratulations to all the winners and everyone who contributed to the fun. See you in the next round.

  • kyoto kidkyoto kid Posts: 35,048

    ..congratulations all. 

    Special congrats to Zawakal who's surreal images are always fascinating.

    Muck as the Love Boat Launcher as well as the Sticky Tongue Tester gave me the best laughs.

  • zawarkalzawarkal Posts: 1,018

    wow, thanks for the votes... must say I have been away from the forums for some time now... not able to do any art -or much of anything else- while my arm is locked at my side, but with my BS (belief system) I know I will be back one day, just not sure if will make next round

    congratulations to everyone!

  • KaribouKaribou Posts: 1,311

    Congrats all!  And thanks for voting me as a winner this month!  I had so much fun this time around.  (It's always more fun to see what crazy things you guys create than motivating myself to not procrastinate!) Zarwarkal, I hope you're up and functional very soon!  (I also hope the STORE and DIM is up and functional again soon, lol...)

  • MelanieLMelanieL Posts: 5,832

    Congratulations to all the winners. And thanks to all who appreciated my snake-charmers/bashers. I too was pleased to see some first-time entrants doing so well - new blood is always a good thing. And pleased to see Zawarkal getting that overdue first place - I hope you'll be able to get back to work before too long, as we'll miss your amazing style.
    Thanks again to Totte for all the admin (and congrats on that win, though my favourite was actually your tongue-tester) and to the sponsors. Looking forward to the next RRRR! (And amazingly Luci now has "only" 4 LB's for that one)

    Congratulations to all of the winners!

    I am, even now, delivering prizes; after a serious hiccup, in which one prize failed to register -- extreme embarrassment on my part, and severe annoyance at DAZ's accounting system -- haven't you guys ever heard of SAP!?, I am doing it in separate orders.  Pro-tip: if you're distributing gift cards to several recipients, do NOT put them all in the same order; DAZ's accounting software will find a way to booger it up!

    I really wish I had had more time to be more fully engaged, but the job seems to be winding down, I'm getting really busy with the "documentation" (the 'one-ton' rule: when the weight of the printed documentation hits two thousand pounds, the job is done, the project is complete)  -- most of which is being composed at my neighborhood Applebee's.  And it's starting to read like a cross between Dickens and Literotica!  (Maybe I should lay off the Martinis while I'm writing it?  Then again, anything that makes software documentation read like cheap porn isn't necessarily a bad thing, right?)

  • TotteTotte Posts: 11,824

    Great to see Kens face and read you witty comments. You are missed here in the virtual asylum called RRRR. And Documentation? Is that the lost third part? A software project is 1/3 specifications, 1/3 implementation and 1/3 debugging. 

     

  • KaribouKaribou Posts: 1,311

    Hey winners -- just a little heads-up.  If you attempt to check & redeem a gift card, the website tells you there's an error and the GC balance is $0.  However, if you go to check out, your cart will have a store credit in the amount of the GC.  (Or, at least, this is what happened to me.)  I opened a support ticket to let The Powers That Be know about the glitch.

    And yes, nice to see you Ken!  Come back and play in our crazy sandbox soon!

  • TotteTotte Posts: 11,824

    Karibou - the store still sends two emails, one with a broken and one with a working GC, so it's hard to know which one works.

    Congratulations to all the winners and thanks for the votes for my rodent entry!  (and thanks for the "conga rats" Totte, lol!) 

  • barbultbarbult Posts: 16,129

    Hey, Ken's back! Hope to see you around here more.

  • Ken OBanionKen OBanion Posts: 1,428

    Okay, I am encountering a problem.

    How do I send a PM?  Every attempt has resulted in a prompt about 'creating a new conversation'.  I have no interest in creating a new conversation; I just want to send a freakin' message!

    Apparently, the web developer that DAZ has contracted has torn an entire chapter out of Microsoft's book: "improve" the software until it it is now entirely unuseable.

    People, please, help me out here.  I have found myself in terra incognita here!

    Yea, it's a 'private thread' now. PM's don't exist anymore.

    (EDIT)

    Oh, and no topic either, Just the message. Unlike MS adding 'features' until it's unless, the PM system has been vivisected into uselessness, lol.

    Congratulations to all the winners.  And thanks again, Totte, for running the show.

     

    And I just came across this real occupation.  Cat Circus Looking for a Tour Assistant (Chicago)  

    There is a pic at the link.

    Ken is on it, he had problems with pm:s (not pms). He probably forgot to subscribe to the thread as well, I'll pm him)

    yea, intuitive, lol. I hope I didn't miss anything important, other then a general congrats to all winners.

    I keep looking here and there, as I have no idea how the new forum 'inbox' orders the 'Private chats', and the Notifications do periodically get dropped for subscribed threads as they keep 'adjusting' things at Daz.

    The last I found so far, was on May 20th so far. I know it will take some time.

    A search for the 'in box' would be nice for things like this, lol.

    PMs are different, but still Private. You see both your message and any replies in your inbox. It's a bit like a private chat room.
