OK, we got much less entries than I hoped for, but either way, these are the banners made for the Gym Leaders Thread. Every URPG member can vote, and this poll will last a week. The winner will get $5,000.

I know... :P

I voted for Tamer's because it looks good and it fits the theme. Well done man.

And how Mana has more vote than anyone else, I don't know. I know its a joke and its supposed to be funny, but if that kind of thing wins, that's how everyone is going to make banners from now on and it's going to look hideous on each and every thread. Sorry, but I just felt I needed to say that...

NightBreaker
03-05-2006, 10:30 PM
I vote for NP's. It may not exactly fit the theme, but at least it's cool looking.

Question: (no offense) Why in the world are people voting for Mana's? Unless there is something wrong with my stupid computer *bangs her computer* or I really am going blind (was expecting to go there around my twenties, actually), I can't see any artistic features in it that betray it as a good banner.

MystiKal

Neo Emolga

I highly doubt he'll care. In fact, I bet he predicted this kind of thing happening.

If you guys like it so much, why don't you make it your sig? I'm sure that would make Mana very, very happy. Prove to him how much you like it...

...and make yourself look like a noob in the process. :P

I think you're just mad because you didn't make one as good as Mana's Mr. Man Boss. And me looking like a noob just because of my sig is judging somebody by their outside, which is very wrong, I didn't expect this kind of stuff from you, but I guess you're just one of the ignorant ones...

I voted for Tamers (looks like that broke the 8-8 tie too). I like Neo's and all, but Lati@s doesn't show the spirit of gym leaders really... Infested's leaders looked a little water-coloured for its background...

I don't wanna get banned for winning T_T

No, really, if I win do I get banned from the URPG?

Pidgeot79
03-06-2006, 09:08 PM
Brushes were like so 2005. Pencil tool is 2006. Mana clearly knows the current popular art style and uses it. It also shows the struggle of man kind. From the left to right the spray paint marking gets less crowded, but then it gets more chaotic and greed falls into numerous beings. Soon fights over land, spices, and all sorts of things erupt. This continues over years as we destroy our resources which eventually leads us to our defeat, our extinction.

Well, you'll have to admit that URPG will be considered retarded if we put up banners like that.

mlugia
03-06-2006, 09:46 PM
Well, yes, it would.

But why would you ban me for that :| You could have just not accepted the submission (Which you wouldn't have had there been more entries, I think)

Or pay me off and use the runner up banner or something >_> I wouldn't mind getting money.

If you win, that is. :tongue:

We should use both banner if we can.

What about having GYM leaders sub board with indivial gym leader's thread and they can edit or change their pokemon whenever. but before thy can they must get an appoval.

Then people can post challenges there.

I don't like Tamer's rocky feel to his banner, NP's is too big for my tastes, infested's look like a Paintshop Pro work(It probably is, but no offense, I just really don't like Paintshop). I think I'll go with mana's for a joke vote :tongue:

...

actually,i was going to say something bad...but i read your idea again...and it could work...

only.... WHAT ABOUT ALL THE GYM LEADER THAT WILL GIVE UP THEIR GYMS? This would confuse people,if they see 2 thread of the same gym with 2 different leaders.

And why people should post their challanges there? Can't they just PM a leader and say "I challange your gym?"


i voted for ed's banner....then i realized that mana were winning...strange.

Neo, typing like that isn't the only way to be a n00b.

You also have to sign up on plotless RPGs and post about yourself saving Ho-oh and Lugia from a nonexistent Pidgey and get their eggs as a reward. Then you have to write fanfictions that are totally pointless and suck, then you go make 23 clubs that already exist (same club 23x).

Yes, I saw all this happen. There was even a race to see who could post in all of the 'clubs' before MODs closed them.

If mana wins, I'll stop living in my closet and I'll also give him my cute, adorable (evil) little sister. If you're lucky, you might make it to the end of the month. I only survive because I have my closet to protect me.

And unlike the rest of the family, she doesn't have a brain. I mean, she embarasses me unbearably. I'm a child prodigy and she's in special ed. She can't even read yet.

I mean, I read when I was 3, why couldn't she? And instead of K L M N when she sings the alphabet, she say kelamen!!WHY?!?! WHY?!?! :wall:

If you're going to sell her for what she's worth, it's two cents.

Well, the world isn't all created equal. I'm pretty sure my brothers are smart, moreso than I am, but I can't complain about cards I was dealt. Like the overweight card >_< I'm often frustrated with my 9 year old brother because I understand things he doesn't yet, but then I get yelled at because, after all, he's just 9, I'm supposed to be more understanding of this age difference T_T I'm sure she's worth more than 2 cents :O I'd sell my bro for at least 3 cents and a big mac :D (jk)

In regards to the voting thing, yeah, I'm sure people outside of the URPG are voting, but probably not exclusively to myself, right? Someone came in and voted for Tamer and didn't bother to write a msg. For all we know, that could be a fake member too, not just the one that came after to vote for me T_T

Ask Mike, he should be authority to see who voted what :o

1. Only G-Mods can't because obviously I can't see who voted ^^

2. Because URPG is ment to be for fun, and we drifted off-topic because we enjoyed the chat ^^

3. He has the right to submit any banner he did as long as it fits the size rules and kept the rule theme. And he did.

i don't get what's wrong with you,raik.

And Zark, your post sound...offensive. Mana had the rights to post his creation,and it's cool,i must say...

but is strange see that "cheap" paint made banner winning...

Voting's over. New thread will be up soon for one week, in which people can vote only for Mana's and Tamer's banner.

*Thread locked.
