Banner Contest Results
« on: Aug 24, 2007, 09:46 PM »
Here are the results that you've been waiting for.  Congrats to Minny for winning the grand prize (if she still wants it).

Choice #1 - Minny - 7 Votes (30.4%)


Choice #2 - SentinelKusunagi - 4 Votes (17.4%)



Choice #3 - SoulHunter - 4 Votes (17.4%)


Choice #4 - Transcend - 3 Votes (13%)


Choice #5 - Zairik - 5 Votes (21.7%)


Interesting Trivia:
-Every contestant voted for their own except #1 and #2.  Minny, the author of #1 voted for #2.
-3/5 banners would've been disqualified if I decided to be a lot more strict on entries.
-The authors of the losing banners kept trash talking about all the other authors during the vote phase.
-#2 would've won if it wasn't black

I don't suppose you're going to tell me that those are original CG drawings by the contestants? >_>

Reread the sentence slowly.

If you browse some art sites, you wont miss them.

All of the images that were used are released by the VG artists and are open to everybody.  Maybe except the last one since I'm not too sure if it's included in the fansite kit.

Images used without the permission of the person who requests it?

If a person was going to use an image, I'd imagine he or she would give his or herself permission to use it.

What besides Randgris in #2 and the knight in #4 are RO fankit art? Are we even technically qualified to use the fansite kit? We're promoting private servers.

This sentence is for the authors of banners to read.  They may use images that are made by other people (all of them did) and they would need to get permission from the people who created the images before they include it within their banner.  You're currently reading it from another perspective.

People who make images and want credit usually say so in various art boards.  Those who do not request it give it out as open domain.

#1 is the creator taken from official RO art
#2 (Valkyrie Profile, not Randgris) and #3 (Fate Stay / YS) are images from Video Game art that is free to use.
#4 uses the Alberta and the Knight from the RO fanart kit.
#5 I've seen before and pretty sure it's by Gravity.

It's things like these that are fully drawn by individuals that require credits:

Just don't ask why I used Naruto

It's all open domain.  Even so, private server sites have nothing to do with the private server itself if you're going over moralities.  This site also has nothing illegal on it.
