The votes have been counted and verified...

Without further ado, it gives me great pleasure to announce the winner of the Vancouver Winter Olympics 2010 Competition:

Congratulations to samuelc812, who designed the winning entry =D> =D>

All that remains for me to do now is to pass the baton on to lackattack (who hopefully won't drop it).

In the meantime, keep your eyes peeled for some more Winter Olympics Fun, CC Style.

Oh, there's also another foundry competition in the pipeline... keep your eyes peeled for that too ;-)

I wish I had entered! I didn't know the due date until it was too late :( I had assumed it would be today with the opening ceremonies.

Yeah, same here. I only had a couple hours to come up with something. I would really enjoy to see some of the other versions that everyone did. I posted mine, ... ;)

congrats sam.

Congrats Sam, it's nice and simple and still has a good feel of the winter Olympics.

I was gonna try out, but to be honest, I had no real idea of what to do.

Maybe if you try saving it as png file, instead of jpeg.

I had some trouble a while back. Photobucket was resizing my files,(I guess). and this caused a substantial loss in detail.
I switched to png's, and it has been working for me since. :D

Another way is to switch to imageshack, which doesn't resize your images as long as they are under 10mb and doesn't limit the amount of images you can upload.


Anyway, could you re-upload the images as png:s and let lack convert them to jpg:s, because right now the quality of the map that is in play is sub-par. I mean really, the image is so fuzzy, it's making me uncomfortable when I play the map...

@ yeti,
You have zero talent when it comes to art. You have never produced the graphics for a map, so maybe you should stick to code writing. :lol:

@ mibi,
Well I don't see anything from you. You may know photoshop better than I, but you will never be a very good artist. You just don't have the talent. It is not something that can be easily learned. I see you acting like some sort of master around here. You have a few quenches under your belt. I will give you that, but your maps are second rate when it comes to the art. They all have one thing in common, they look like an 8 year old made them. Very amateurish, which matches your banty rooster strut, of an attitude.

Tearing others down does NOT make you higher. It only shows your own insecurities. ;)

calm down, you lost, some people don't like our map, that doesn't mean it is bad or you are bad, it jut means it is not good enough in the eyes of most people.

Just because I don't make maps doesn't mean I can't see...

As stated - you lost... probably because you didn't understand that people like to be able to play games without getting headaches...

porkenbeans wrote:Tearing others down does NOT make you higher. It only shows your own insecurities. ;)


I wasn't "tearing you down" - I don't do that - I was giving you constructive criticism - your version was hideous... the other map won by default.

Oh yeah - and for the record... I was on the voting panel - unlucky.

Back to the subject at hand. Are you going to do anything about the fuzziness of the map currently in play? It really does look bad. I'm sure the version that was not crappified by crapbucket would look much better, so can we get it re-uploaded?

Host the image as a png, it is a lossless format so the host service can not mess with it. This way the only quality loss will be when lack converts the image to jpg.
