Welcome back, friends! I must say that I am amazed at the response we got to this banner contest. We received a whopping 76 entries, and they are all gorgeous. I do not envy the difficult task that awaits you all -- choosing which of these lovely banners to vote for!
Since there are so many entries, I think its a good idea to divide voting up into two rounds, the first narrowing the pool down to 15 finalists, and the second deciding the winner. Please read all the rules below very carefully before voting. May the best banner win!
1. Each member can vote for a maximum of five banners. If you vote for any more than five, only your first five votes will be counted.
2. You may NOT vote for your own banner.
3. Banner makers may NOT inform any members which banners they have made. You should NOT hit "like" on the posts in which your banner was selected unless you plan to hit "like" on all the other posts as well.
I tried my best to keep count of all the banners, but it is always possible for some to get missed. If by any chance, you do not see your banner here even though you submitted it, please contact me immediately, and I will do my best to make up for the mistake.
Round 1 of voting will end on Saturday, April 6, 2013.
