Insane questions?  Marble statues were mentioned in the contest rules!!

European readership alienated. Mission failed.

I was looking forward to making something for this contest, but the game wouldn't play on my Wii if I won. I guess that means living in the UK will disqualify me from all future competitions as well.

Tips: Wear shorts, see if you can catch a GS employee in uniform (ie. visible name badge) on their way back from lunch, so you can catch them outside on a nice sunny day.

Remember guys, even if you don't win you can gain entrance into the NWR hall of fame, just like Smash_Brother did with his 7th anniversary picture or Hallbred's dinosaur pajamas.

Really sometimes its fun just to mess around with ideas even if you don't win anything in particular.

That kinda dissapointed that I worked hard on mine and it doesn't even get a chance.


O well, this is what mine was because I don't want my work unseen.

While I really like Bit Trip Summer, I gotta give it up for my boy Zap.

I think if you enter you should at least get a chance for yours to be voted on.
Quote
Submissions will be posted the evening of Saturday, August 1 2009

Doesn't say the 5 best... That implied all submissions would be posted unless it broke the rules.

I mean who decided the top 5? It should have been every entry.... I spent hours working on mine and it doesn't get a chance?

NWR STAFF  there is a little glitch.  When you link to this page from the main menu, it goes into a secure https protocol and the page loads with errors and its all jumbled.   But when you enter the page through the talkback section, it is displayed properly.  I am using IE 8 with windows 7

I apologize for not specifically mentioning the "narrowing down to Top 5" concept.  We had to do that to keep the voting manageable, and will spell this out in the rules of future contests of this type.  This was always assumed on our end, and not putting it in there was an oversight on our part.

Don't feel stupid EasyCure. I didn't realize I had won for the same reason until I saw Vudu's post. I came in confused, wondering if people were still voting since it said [VOTE NOW] at the top the way it does now even though it's not supposed to because you can't.

Thanks BwrJim. I think that was the *most fun part, I haven't played with mud in a long time. (*Either that or accidentally throwing the ball on the roof)
