okay, time's up and your chances to win are over.
it seems that unfortunately i wasn't able to find all 11 people who were interested in winning a sub and so i have now only 9 names. for the other two remaining subs i decided to give one to ~kAtz93
, because he was so terribly close to winning the CHANCE #3 yesterday, and the other sub goes to ~Saiyuki989
who presented me a pretty great idea in CHANCE #5 (also yesterday) but which i didn't choose, because i thought that it'd too much resemble an idea i already had for today's CHANCE #10 & #11.
given the fact that nobody -i repeat- NOBODY
took his/her chances on winning today's CHANCE #8 & #9, i kind of regret that i haven't used ~Saiyuki989
's idea from yesterday.
oh my, i asked you to be selfless and generous in that CHANCE #8 & #9 and now see what ugly light this shines on you. nobody was able to think of a single fellow deviant who might feel happy to be given a 3 months sub. guys, i hate to say it, but that's really sad.
but wait, there's one particular guy, who can indeed be called selfless. and that's no other than the winner of the CHANCE #10. his name is ~Bayushi-Tai
and look what he has promised to do, if he would just get a 3 months sub: [link]
if that's not selfless then i don't know what.
right... so together with all of yesterday's winners, there's only one person missing on my list and that's the winner of CHANCE #7. the goal was to create a desktop screenshot with 11 candles in it. the winner has sent his entry almost immediately after i have announced that challenge and believe it or not, it remained to be the only entry eversince. and that's for almost 8 long hours.
but that doesn't change the fact that !iResult
's entry was indeed a fine one. so, with his fabulous screenshot i would like to end this year's subs giveaway by saying:
Thank you everybody for the wonderful fun and
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEVIANTART
Wow.. what an amazing ride that was yesterday.
But behold, the party isn't over yet. Those of you who have watched and participated in the Yesterday Challenges [link]
are well aware of the fact that there are still
5 More 3 Months Subs
to be given away. Or wait.... that also the winner of your CHANCE #6
has yet to be announced.
well, before i'll get to that, i want you to know that today all your remaining 5 chances to win a sub will all start and end at the same time.
so, since you're obviously already reading this now, i am glad to tell you that the race is on and the last 5 challenges have already started.
the time at which the challenges end is at
11PM my Time
okay, so before i confront you with your next chances to win one of the subs, here are yesterdays winners of CHANCE #6
. the goal was to "write a poem/limerick/etc - starting each line with the letters of the name deviantART."
i have to admit that i was soooo very amazed by each of the two entries, so that i decided to let them both win a 3 months sub. here are the winning entries:
by ~JudietteDizzy, all people jump to their beds and fall asleep at midnight
Everybody's picking his flower in their green garden of their dream,
Victim of my frightening, I wasn't capable to open my eyes or scream,
I was the only one unable to rest, incapable of turning off the light,
And the dark sky seemed to be shined only by my lamp's beam.
Nobody nevertheless cared about my howl, my bites' and cries' mark
Tainted by my remorses, the cell of sadness condensed at me
And all the colours seemed to merge and steam in the dark
Reopening my eyes, I found myself infront of hell portal, opened up to me,
"This is Karma" said a devil, pushing me inside the flames of torturing eternity
Etched in my head
Variations of arts in your page
I know, I choose the right way
A way that leads to arts making
No wonder if my skill improves
To you, DeviantArt
And to all moderators that read this
Realized that I must to say thank you
THANK YOU for DeviantArt community
and all amazing moderators!
CHANCE #7 (over. won by !iResult)
okay, for this challenge i want you to create a screenshot of your desktop with 11 candles
in/on it. you can do it as you like. you can create an entireely new wallpaper and then have that as your desktop background. or you can place various thumb images of candles you found here on deviantART on your desktop and then screenshoot that. be creative. 11 candles
is what i'd like to see in your screenshot.
the creator of the best screenshot wins a 3 months sub.
CHANCE #8 and #9 (over. won by nobody .. shame on you guys)
yes, i'll have 2 winners
for this, because i can already anticipate how hard it will be for me to select only one winner for this.
this one appeals to your selflessness, your generosity and your community spirit. what i want you to do, is to tell me about a person who is in real need
for a 3 months sub. in other words, i want you to persuade me that i have no other choice than to give the person you're suggesting a sub. make me cry or make me laugh, but by all means.... make me really want to give away a 3 months sub to a person who i then feel really needs and deserves it."But wait..."
you might say "if you give the person i am suggesting a sub, how come that i am to get one too??? doesn't this mean that you'll have to give away a total of 4 subs in this challenge then?"
good question and you're absolutely right. i will give away 2 subs for the 2 most selfless suggestions and 2 subs to the people you're suggesting. but don't worry, there'll still be 2 subs left for the next and final challenge(s).
CHANCE #10 and #11 (over. won by ~Bayushi-Tai)
again there'll be 2 winners for the same reason i mentioned for the previous challenge.
but this time i want to see all the vicious and relentless parts of your innermost selves. i want you to sell me a story
about why it is you and only you who deserves a 3 months sub. show me your desperation or your sadness. show me your greatness or your awesomeness. betray me, fool me, deceive me, lie to me or be as honest as you can possibly be. i don't mind actually, as long as you sell me a story
that leaves me no other option than to give YOU
a 3 months sub.
i'm looking for really really mad or hillarious or inventive stories here. be crazy, be egoistic or maybe make others shake their heads over you. truth or lie... it's up to you. tell me your story and the 2 best ones win a 3 months sub.
some final words: please note that i can't and won't give a sub to anyone who has already won one of the previous challenges. i'm sure you understand.
those who have won or those who will be announced to be the winner of the currently open challenges will get their 3 months subs within the next 7 days. i'll have to send my list of winners to $Moonbeam13
and she will take it from there. since she is quite busy with a lot of other things, this is basically the reason why i now ask you to allow at least a weeks time before you will eventually receive your subs.
if for whatever reason you still haven't received your legitimately won subs after those 7 days, then please contact me again and i will take care of it asap.
