    Just a mention that I forgot to specify when the poll would close when I posted the thread. I fixed that; the poll will be open until May 27, 11:38 am, MDT.

    Hm. We appear to have a tie.

    So I'm not sure how you wanted to handle this? I've got an idea in mind, if you'd like me to take the next one. Let me know.

    I was thinking we might have a Swans vs. Penguins tie-breaking vote, and add a bit of information about our respective birds (I don't mean an essay, just a sentence or two of whatever it is you find most interesting about your birds).

    Both are absolutely fascinating, and one of the things I enjoy about avatar contests is when we're told a little about the entry - what/who it's about, as often a picture can be interesting, funny, cute, lovely... but the 1000 words it's worth aren't quite there.

    As the contest runner, it is your choice how to proceed. If I may share an alternate viewpoint, though... the previous contest ended March 27. It is now June 5. It just seems like maybe this one doesn't really need to be stretched out that much longer.

    As I mentioned, I have an idea already, and would be ready to go with it this weekend. But the idea is also tied in to something else, and is therefore time-specific. However, please note I am certainly not trying to pressure you into ceding, or anything like that. If you don't want to do that, then I am certainly happy to cede this one to you instead.

    Again, if you want a tie-breaker vote, it's totally your choice. But if I'm being honest, my reason for including a swan image didn't really involve much beyond "they look graceful and pretty".

    Do you think I've never had time-sensitive ideas for these contests that I wasn't able to put into place because I didn't win outright (or at all)?

    Fine, whatever.

    I'm out of this thread, as in unsubscribing, not entering, not even voting (which I've done a lot of even when not entering). Please don't tag me.

    Might be back someday, though, in which case I would appreciate people not arguing if I ask for non-animated avatars. I've explained my reasons and that should be good enough.

    Well, as they say, "the show must go on", so here's a new contest.
