Well, the Flickr is up, and a few submissions are there, but there’s a bit of a problem, and a few of you who have submitted might notice that you’re submission is not up for all the world to behold, celebrate or mock enthusiastically.
The biggest reason is that some of the earlier emails with the links to your submissions were deleted thanks to a smart folder and its hatred of both fine and hideous art. The submissions started coming in the day the contest started, but everything up to the 6th of August has been wiped, so please resend your pieces. Some pretty cool stuff has been lost, as well as stuff that made the cool stuff look even more amazing, so get that stuff back here.
Beyond that, some of the submissions were left out simply because you didn’t follow the rules, the most common being the exclusion of the text of the Twitter post that inspired the piece.
Here’s a few additions or clarifications that will help out as far as sending stuff from now on.
• Really, REALLY include the text of the post from Twitter
• Include the name you wish to be credited by in the file name itself
• Flash animations aren’t quite part of this challenge, but it might be fun for a future one
• Go ahead and attach the files from now on, just in case something terrible happens
• Some of you have to try even harder to iron out the anime look to your stuff. Everyone’s staring at you
• If you uploaded images to a site that requires registration to view them, upload them somewhere else or just send them directly.
Until the future…
