Re: SF&F Hallowe'en avatar contest!

Mine's from a poster from the 1933 film of The Invisible Man. Never seen it or anything, I just think it's neat artwork.

You should see it. It's one of the better films in that Universal cycle. James Whale was a great director.

Well, I'm going to be different--and hence, totally LOSE the contest, but what the hell?

Good movie, too.

Interesting, interesting. How's it compare to HG's novel? Really good adaptations are thin on the ground, in my experience. It is actually one I've not read yet, but I'm getting round to it.

Re: SF&F Hallowe'en avatar contest!

Now that Halloween has come and gone, can we get a voting thread?

Yes I thought it was meant to be Friday night; it's Saturday night now.
Let's not have a repeat of last week...

Another poll bites the dust? Someone want to volunteer to do the poll?

Re: SF&F Hallowe'en avatar contest!

Mmm, this is poor. Poor, poor, poor.

Anyone remember when this was simple? The voting would go up on Friday night, votes over the weekend, new contest on Monday, entries, voting goes up on Friday, votes over the weekend, etc etc etc
It's easy!
(Haha, feel like ranting now)
Whereas of late it's all over the place. Pull your frakking fingers out!

I'd do it myself but I should really be going to bed now (work in morning), and so won't be around here till about 18 hours from now.
This contest better not go tits up like the last one, so someone do it!


Ahem, rant over. ooh yeah

I'm tempted to take the warning and give you the reply I really want to give you.

It didn't go up because Friday night was fucking Hallowe'en. Don't complain about how simple it should be when I'm the one who thinks it should be one vote per person--thus eliminating the chance of ties in the first place--and that we should eliminate the polls entirely and just begin casting spoken votes at a set time every week within the same thread. You can't get much simpler than that.

No, people want to vote in polls, and they want to vote for three people every time, because picking one is oh, so hard.

Now the rant is over.
