First let me say thanks to everyone who participated and helped others in the forums with testing.  I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of entries submitted, and the conversations it generated in the forums with people offering to help others.  I was also happy to see some skinners break from their regular skins to try something news, so overall I think this mini-contest was a big success.  It was really tough to choose winners as all the entries were of top-notch quality, but we choose the winners based on the design and creativity of the entries. 

1st Place – 123GGamble by Roloccolor

123GGamble

 

2nd Place – Switch by RedneckDude

Switch

 

3rd Place – Sountox by c242

Sountox

 

I’d also like to post some honorable mentions:

Thanks again to everyone who entered, and I’ll contact you about winnings in a day or so.

Ok, Spencer, How do I let you know who I want to give my prize to? 

I know someone who needs a WC sub, but he doesn't have Windows8, so he doesn't need Start8.  Any way I can split the prize between 2 people?

I'm going to PM you a Start8 key, so you can give it to whomever you choose.  Otherwise, PM me who to gift a sub to as I have to do that manually.

Nice work to the winners, well deserved.

 

How you picked is beyond me, must have been tough. I think GMC had 200 good submissions just by himself,lol. Good stuff all around and some nice selection for viewers now.

 

PS, still liked that wolverine one.

I think I only entered 3 or 4 sets into the contest, for the most part, just stirring the pot. And, you upload quite a few yourself.

I liked nearly all yours a lot, it's a shame they all weren't eligible.

thanks Spencer, much appreciated.

Quoting doortech1,
GMC, that was a compliment not an accusation,

and not taken as such. Think the excuse for the contest was to get some material uploaded, you did your part, just was mentioning that.

Thank you... I was online this morning and wanted to write some words- sadly I only had very little time because I had to get to the university... this is a very cool 30th birthday gift for me - Yes i turned 30 today
Im Happy about the first place of course but  would like to congratulate everyone else who participated in this mini competition.
I now have enough buttons for all my fav. skins hehe..

It is hard to work on such small space and i was surprised by the buttons and the level of creativity in some of them ID already named some of them:

I loved "Parisienne8 by BoXXi - Sountox by c242 and Triffid by Stramp"

GMC- uploaded some great great minimal buttons : to name a view you should definitely check out is "Glass Button Set6",Tempered,Chachet8...

Best idea RND - to be honest my first button was a lock... but not a ignition-lock -very cool!

Now excuse me i have to get back and maw the lawn before my guests arrive and we start the BBQ ^_~

Why, thank you Roloccolor, what a nice thing to say!  

I can see why you got first place though, you got a lot of detail in a very small space, very high quality as well!    

 

 

I wish I could have added the sound of a starting engine...lol.
