That's strange, for me they appear normally. Can anyone else not see my avatars?
I can see the ones in #4, but not the ones in #6.

Edit: I can see #6 now, too.

Nah, I think that it's okay I just like the angle in mine (Kira shooting at an innocent old man) so I would like to keep it.
I think that you avatar is fine, as long as no one else uses the same scene as us...
Cool!

Just one question on the Random Theme...can it only be sci-fi / fantasy written before the 19th century? Or does it just have to be SET before then?
If I understood Marie correctly it would be ok to use anything set before the 19th century. I don't think it has to be written before that time.

Progress. I aim to be different...and the Lissepian is awesome-looking.


From Civil Defense. Just got done watching that episode. Hopefully I didn't misinterpret what the theme meant. XD


And finally, the Random. Chariots, FTW.
Welcome to the contest! And you understood the theme correctly.

YAY! New people in the contest!

I didn't see 'Progress' 'til I had the first season on DVD, and immediately loved it, thanks to the relationship between Kira and Brian Keith's Mullibok.

Can I get a "Hell, yeah!"?

Correct! Glad someone understands my long-winded descriptions...

And I can see apenpaap's avs too!

I'm gonna try and work on this contest, but I seem to be losing my mind at the moment... probably not a good idea...

nothing can beat apenpaaps, but i quite like how this turned out anyways. :3



garak is such a beast!!

random:



from the movie timeline, where peeps go back to the 1300s.... wasn't quite happy with it, so i decided to jump on the qpid bandwagon...



.... and decided i didn't like this one either, but i love that cap of john delancie :P

so yeah, i'll decide what to do later.

one thing i love/hate about this av competition... you get so long! on ASN we usually only get a week for all of our icons and sigs.... and for all the games and requests i do, that's like three icons and seven sigs a week :P XD

Tough to choose between them but I slightly favour the second one.

I love the episode for the same reason. And for Kira's struggle with her new role. That's what I love the most about DS9 - they had plenty of character development!

That's a lot of icons and sigs. I usually make 6 avatars per fortnight; 3 for this contest and 3 for the voyager avatar contest.

Once upon a time we used to have 5 days to enter and 3 days to vote but about a year ago some forum avatar contests changed into a longer entry period so more people would have time to enter.

Random theme: For lack of inspiration I'll enter this Xena av (unless I come up with something else later on):

^ I think I give about a week for the FC avatar contest... well, I mean to, but then I like to wait for more entries...
So plus I always wait til the last minute, so I <3 the extra time.

The contest is more challenging and fun if there are more entries so I like the extra time as well.

I like the first one better, too. I think it really captures the spirit of the episode.

Man, I've been having a LOT of trouble with the Random Theme. My two favorite time-travel books have NO graphics whatsoever associated with them.

(Eifelheim by Michael Flynn, and Pastwatch: The Redemption of Christopher Columbus by Orson Scott Card.)

I ended up going with Dante's Inferno. While a believer, it is very obvious that Dante was writing from his own imagination, so I count it. I offer this avatar, artwork by the wonderfully talented Gustav Doré.
