    Vote above for your favorite "The Sky Is Falling" avatars. Yes, you can vote for three. With so many options, I wanted more votes to fill out the poll.

    The poll will be open through Friday night's CE session. That was inkahauts' idea, and a good one.

    As I was making the poll, I had to eliminate five of the entries. I found out that the board (or vBulletin) limits posts to 30 images. One was easy - mine. I also removed Hutchinshouse's and Nick's as they were never really meant to be entered, if I understood their original posts. I also cut out Stewart Sweet's, as I knew he'd understand, and MicroBeta's, as his was his normal, cool submarine av. If I erred here, I apologize. I had to make a snap decision at 3AM.

    The order of the poll was determined by randomly pulling names out of a hat. Using this same order, I put poster's names with their avatars in post #2 so you can know whose is whose. If you want them in alphabetical order, they are here and here.

    Finally, I'd like to thank both James Long and Stewart Sweet for their help in making this first ever DBSTALK av contest a reality. They were both very helpful and patient with me. Thanks, guys. :)

    Jeez, Merg, we ran out of the "I Voted" stickers a couple of hours ago. I have this button lying around. Will it do?

    [​IMG]

    Less than 11 hours left to place your vote. I love the participation so far. Let's keep it up.

    Did I mention bribery is OK in this contest?



    And thanks for all the nice remarks. It's been my pleasure. :)

    The poll is closed and we have a winner.

    I was pleased to see that "darn!" got two votes. I wish I'd voted for it. I bet if I had made that option "motherf...(OK, it's a family board)", it would have won.

    Third place was the best of the Chicken Little entries. It was from Draconis:

    [​IMG]

    A well composed entry from steveholtam took second place. My only question is where do you find water in outer space?

    [​IMG]

    And finally, we have our top vote getter, a very funny one from Timmmaaayyy2003 in which Wile E. Coyote signs up for DirecTV:

    [​IMG]

    Congratulations, Timmmaaayyy, and everyone who entered and voted. I appreciate all of the participation.

    And what does Timmmaaayyy2003 win? In a contest titled "The Sky Is Falling", what else would you expect other than he gets to Kiss His Ass Goodbye.

    I'll take second happily! And behind the gremlin is the earth, not water. That was fun though. Look forward to D?? in the year 20??.

    I shouldn't make a joke about a movie I haven't seen in a couple of decades. I remembered the film incorrectly, Steve. I thought you didn't want to get the cute, fuzzy creatures wet or they would turn into gremlins. No, it was you didn't want to feed them after midnight. My mistake. Getting them wet caused them to reproduce.

    Your av was much better than my joke. :)
