The first round of CA voting will take place behind closed doors, before all of the the submissions are publicised and the second (public) round of voting begins ;-)

The CA vote has been counted and verified, and it is with great pleasure that I can announce the entries to the Foundry Stamp Competition that will now receive the public vote:

Option A wrote:Image
Option B wrote:Image
Option C wrote:Image
Option D wrote:Image


The choice was incredibly difficult, as the field was packed with a variety of ideas and talent. The variety of ideas that seeps from the foundry never ceases to amaze me, and is one of the things that makes Conquer Club great =D>

Thank you to everybody who took part - all of the other competition entries are contained in the spoiler below. The voting has so far been anonymous
(I am the only person who knows who all the entries belong to) - I will leave it to the designers of unsuccessful entries to take credit for their work as they see fit ;-)

Happy Bananas, and Happy Voting!!

If I didn't no any better, I would think that Qwert created the option-A stamps. I vote for C because it is simple, you can quickly determine what stage the map is at, and the graphics are very cool. I almost voted for B, because I really like the idea of it, but the graphics just fell a little short. A was a bit too busy, and D was too large and dark.

A: Busy, spacey, futuristic... they're very nice, but a bit too busy for me
B: I like the originality, and they look stunning. The size is good too, they got my vote
C: Simple, yet elegant, second choice for me
D: I like the idea, but somehow there is something that puts me off, cant exactly say what.

wow, my favorite entry didn't even get to this round!

C is the best concept, and if the creator had done something with the dead space in each pie piece it would have my vote in a heartbeat. But B just looks too nice.

Note to the B creator - CC no longer uses dice, it uses "number cubes." :lol:

your vote could change stuff, it is not like there are thousands of people voting and one doesn't matter that much.

These options all look nice, all great graphically
Option A: It is just a little bit to crowded, a bit to much like a medal - not stamp
Option B: Very nice, great idea
Option C: nice idea, but i don't think it is the type that the foundry is looking for
Option D: Really nice graphically, really shows the stamp idea

My monitor is 1024x768, and I can see them all, except for ½ of entry #9 (in the spoiler)... If you were desperate to see them, then you could get the path by r-clicking on the image, and viewing them directly...

Headlined it for fun. So roughly the votes after 39 could theoretically be people coming in from the headline. :)
