Old Hollywood Exceptional Awards, and the next Challenge Theme
You've all had you chances to vote, and the staff have had our chance to look at the results, so what with the Fairytale challenge well under way it seems high time that the awards for Exceptional entries to the Old Hollywood challenge were given out. So here we have the three entries which most Wow'd the members and staff, for their creativity and work...
In no particular order:
For an excellent likeness, and for a whole lot of work put into making extra custom content to match: Shirley Temple: by Aligeth!
Congratulations and thanks to these three, for sharing their exceptional work, and honourable mentions too for Blank Canvas and naceygirl, for their contributions - and, of course, to everyone else who worked hard and came out with one of the many wonderful entries in this Challenge. Well done to all!
Entrants will be recieving their trophies shortly (for more info click here).
Thank you very much! Congrats to dear Aligeth,(who always has a nice word for me), for her incredible Shirley!
Congrats to Fresh Prince, who did a amazing job!!!
Thank you MTS staff and all the people who likes my sims!
You know the way it twists and turns,changing colour,spining yarns
You know the way it leaves you dry, It cuts you up, it takes you high
You know the way it throws about,It takes you in and spits you out
Wow!! I don't envy the judges who had to decide this one, all of the prospects were awesome!! Congrats to the winners!
I have a general question about how the contests are judged, and I'm not sure if this is the right forum or not?? so please forgive me if I've goofed (again!) and posted it in the wrong place.
Do the Mods actually download the entries to look at them, or is the judging done solely on the posted pictures? Because sometimes there's so much stuff I want to include in my entries, but just can't seem to get it all in the pictures, so I wonder if I should include it at all.
Thanks for your consideration and your answer, and for running the very best site on the 'Net for us Sims2 addicts!!
We choose the items for a shortlist based on the pictures, post, and the uploader's past uploads (ie if all they've done before is simple clothing recolours and then they go make a fully working hacked and meshed object, that's more impressive than say if someone like Numenor the Great did the same). Then we post a poll in Site Polls, for the members to vote on the shortlist: and then we decide the winners, taking into consideration, but not based solely, on the poll results. The entries aren't actually tested by staff, unlike Featured items.
Hope that answers your question.

Congratulations to the winners and thanks to everyone who contributed such enjoyable content for the contest. This has been a fun theme. Can't wait to see how the next theme turns out.
