My fellow Kaleuns,

It's time to place your vote for the March Screenshot Competition. The entries are Here (http://alexbret.perso.cegetel.net/March07competition.htm) Thanks to Minoos for sorting them into his special viewer.

When voting, please remember to state which Kaleun you are voting for, and which screenshot in particular - Most entrants name their individual screenshots. Comments, praise and questions are welcome in your voting post.

I thank you all for entering, and wish you all the very best of luck. The Screenshot Comp is a YEAR OLD next month! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/partyhat.gif I sincerely appreciate you all for supporting it and keeping it going http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

There will be an SH4 Screenshot Comp for those Kaleuns, and newcomers, that will be playing SH4, and it will naturally be in that section of the forum. The SH3 Comp will continue to run in this half of the forum as normal. There is a lot of life left in SH3 yet! and I look forward to seeing all of your submissions!

My candidates in order of apperance:

Minoos: Shaken, not Stired
- It looks like a painting, interesting image!
Stingray-65: Saboteur's Dream
- Funny and different!
GoldenEagle8: Suicide
- Different
jmanwell: Suicide Orders
- Funny somehow, can't explain further!
JFL13: Shark Attack
- I just like the colours in this image!
VikingGrandad: Into the fjords
- I just like the colours in this image too!

The finalists would be:
Minoos: Shaken, not Stired
jmanwell: Suicide Orders

The winner (this is tough!):
jmanwell: Suicide Orders http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/clap.gif

The external image site is being sorted Carotio, it'll be up soon.
As for entries that are outside of the 800X600 rule, any votes cast for them will be void I'm afraid. I have PM'd, and publicly asked the submitters to change them and offered help to do it, but a minority haven't even replied to me. To those that have changed their submission sizes I thank you for your co-operation.

First, I would like to apologize to everyone here for my entry of "Room With A View". I failed to take into consideration that although it was art, it was sexual in nature and shouldn't have been posted on the forums. My sincerest apology.



Honorable mentions (in order of appearance):
hward1983's "Good Morning for hunting!!" - I can almost feel the hull.
Minoos' "Shaken, not Stirred" - I think this horse will win.
Minoos' "Blown Rudder"
wm4668's "Take that, Tovaritch!" - *I love planes.
WilhelmSchulz.'s "PT Combat" - Great action there!
WilhelmSchulz.'s "Torpedo Impact!" - ditto
Grrbob25's "Bearing Down on HMS Kashmir" - *
danurve's "Here comes the pain!"
Poseidon_142's "Big brother Little brother"
tambor198's "Shadowing before 2nd attack run"
JFL13's "Great Balls of Fire"
JFL13's "Shark Attack"
VikingGrandad's "Milch Kuh rendezvous" - That is so beautiful. Your whole game really.

And this month my vote goes to... Carotio's "Are you talking to Me?" - I love out of the ordinary stuff.

I particularly like shots that remind me of 'Das Boot', so full http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif to GoldenEagle and sevenem for such well executed screenshot ideas.

I've tried so many times to get a shot like "Shaken, not Stirred" and not managed it, so I vote for Minoos http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Like in the European Song Contest?
"La France - douze point!" (France - 12 points)
If we do make it possible, everybody has to do it, and sometimes I see people only mention one entry, that is their vote.

But it's possible, if we settle for let's say a 3 point system: 6 points for the best, 4 points for the runner up and 2 points for third place!

True - the current one vote system makes it easy to vote, but it does make it hard to choose which single entry to vote for. The last thing we want is less people voting.

The vote is actually on the author, not the image as itself. All authors put up 4 entries, and anyone can then vote for an author! The 4 entries was set at this number, so one have a selection to participate with without the total number become to large!
Your vote should then be Jmanwell, but you're welcome of course to mention, which image inspired you to vote for him! You may also mention runner-ups/candidates.

Each month on the 1st, a new thread is created by RJ, where the rules are stated!

Hi danlisa, thanks for showing an interest in the screenshot comp http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

A quick overview:

A submissions thread is opened - which includes the rules in the opening welcome thread - and stickied at the top of the sticky threads in the General Discussion area, on the 1st of each month. Forum members are invited to post up to 4 screenshots (preferably all together in one post). The submissions thread is locked on the 16th of the month, and the voting thread is opened and stickied. Each forum member, regardless of wether they have posted or not, is entitled to vote. Each forum member gets one vote. That vote is for ONE screenshot. At midnight on the last day of the month (GMT time) the votes are counted and I announce the winner.

Please check the rules on the April Comp, but in a nutshell - no editing of the screenshots other than lightening up very dark pictures, max size is 800X600, no picture frames, you can include a title if you wish inside the screenshot, but keep it small and discreet (most people type the title e.g. Surface at Dawn' just above and outside of the screenshot).

I look forward to seeing your entries! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
