Well. It was a multi tie below Person 4TW under Romance, so I really can't replace it with anything without another tiebreaker. And Person 4TW got into Layout by the skin of it's teeth (right above a huge multi tie). And the same goes for Character Design. I can remove the nominations, but I don't have anything to replace them without another round of tie-breaking.

I don't know if this is the best place to post this, but since I'm up for best use of color I feel obligated to say it, lol. I've noticed that since the change over, the colors on my comic pages on DD look less vibrant that they actually are. I think it's a common issue, but I was wondering if posting a link to my comic over on deviant Art would be a good idea? The colors are much more true to life and it's pretty easy to read through over there. : )

Have you noticed this on your recently uploaded pages or only on the older ones? The older ones may look bad because everybody's images got compressed during the changeover. If it's just the older ones then all you need to do is re-upload them images.
 
Also, if there is something wrong with the site's color and you're using a DA account while everyone else uses a DD account, then that would give you an unfair advantage. Better to keep the playing field as level as possible.

Why not let the judges vote on a tie breaker, be quicker and easier than a public vote and with those categories it would rewuire masses of reading.   There are flaws with that idea but it makes it easier.

Sorry, I didn't realize I was being unfair. But it's all of my files, including the ones I've uploaded recently. I tried re-uploading some of the older pages a while ago and the color still looks off. : / There's a VERY obvious color difference between my comics on DD and on deviant art and (dare I say it) comic fury.

I see, I can understand how that could cause a lot of extra fuss. I don't wanna cause any problems or anything, I just really don't think P4TW deserves to be a finalist in those categories.
If you can't find a replacement for it without a lot of extra hassle then I guess don't worry about it, but I think even if you don't have a replacement I shouldn't be in Best Character Design.

I eat Donkey Kong for breakfast.
 
The de-fanged Judges' Edition of Death P*rn is up now. Judges who object to judging prurient type stuff will have an easier time reading that version, as I've removed the completely pornographic stuff (which was actually less than a dozen pages, surprisingly). So now they at least have that option.
 
I should note, however, that it's not a “porn free” or “safe-for-work” version, by any means, and judges for Best Adult and Most Deliciously Offensive should definitely still go by the uncut version. I'd also recommend that all judges who don't have an issue with it read the original version as well. I only posted the Judges' Edition for those who might've been skittish about the original because it had “too much porn” in it.

Hey Dodger! I think I can see what's going on, your files are .jpeg, and the compression issue seems to be effecting these most.  Try uploading the pages as .png and it won't screw things up (which is kinda sad since .png can be huge).

AWESOME thanks so much for the votes. Woohoo two categories! I was really hoping for best all ages and anthro so thanks! Congratulations to all the nominated guys gals and comic characters! Looks like tough competition but I'm glad to be a part of it. Thanks to Niccea for putting all the work in and taking the time to post the links of winning categories on our comic pages! Much appreciated! Good luck ducks!

Congrats to all the finalists. Thanks to those that nominated Cowtoon. Gawd knows I have no chance in hell of winning, but it's cool all the same.
I guess I can offically consider myself mildly amusing. My whole life is finally starting to make sense. Those people were laughing at me because i'm funny and not just because I look Sloth from the Goonies. If I had known this growing up it would have saved me from beating up so many people. jk
Thanks again and good luck everybody!!!!

Ok. I have delivered all the banners for the comic categories. (I was going to rope some people into helping me, but I found that once I started, I couldn't stop.) I'll have the user ones sent out within 24 hours. And I will be giving out judging/presentation assignments this weekend. I still really need more judges  and a few more presenters.

Gotta say, I will be shocked if Cowtoon doesn't win for Most Deliciously Offensive!

Don't worry, Strain. Your comic is not taking slots from any more/other deserving people. The significant vote number cutoffs were quite distinct. If you withdrew, there would be nothing to replace it, just fewer finalists.

If the judges feel as you do on those categories, they will discard it. But it does contain technically qualify and the finalists are chosen by votes. There is nothing to feel bad about.

Btw, I haven't mentioned it yet, but I am honored and touched for the nominations. :) This community brings me a lot of happiness, and the support and encouragement is beyond wonderful. Also, congratulations to all finalists. It's a great group of comics, and I look forward to help judging. Please save me a couple spots to judge. :) (I'll be away until Oct 3rd.)

One last thing, if any of you voted for one of the users in the User Award Finalists, do you think you could send me a PQ with a blurb about why you voted for them. You don't have to, but I think it would be nice.

Just want to thank everyone who nominated Beast Legion for the best anthro comic, from the bottom of my heart. Hopefully we'll be aiming for more next year. :)
I'm so glad some of my all time faves on DA including Harkovast, Evan Yeti & Rangetsu got selected. Congrats to all the finalists.

JazyIH I was all set to tell you that you were going down and I was going to crush you etc.
But then you said you read Harkovast…so now I feel guilty.
So now I am going to crush you, but in a more friendly, cuddly sort of way.

Considering the cuddly or not-so-cuddly attestations that nominees are going to crush each other, is there some tender judge appendage squeezing imminent to help them along in the selection process involved all nominees should know about and invest in? XD XD XD

or we could just let the pool of potential winners go Darwinian. 
If so, it would be grand if the Darwinian could go down Before the judges roll up their sleeves and commence.

You know I just consider becoming a judge if I could gurantee certain comic creators squeezing my appendanges (while the wife is in San Fran in that hospital bed)  But even then I'd certainly prefer the envelope full of cash so long as it's American Dollars or Chinese Yuan, no Euros.
 
But what does going Darwinian mean and does it involve pointed sticks?  Why do I get this feeling it involves warpaint, flint headed spears and running through the woods screaming savage war cries.

I also want to know what going Darwinian is, it sounds savage enough :P 
As for Harkovast's plan, heh, Greeks can't afford to bribe anyone so we collectively think to resort to more …straightforward and acute ways to underline our wishes XDXD
Bravo1102, why do you trust any fiat money currency over the other? Just get your payment in gold. *nod nod*

What's this about me getting nominated? I would have figured you guys had forgotten me by now.
 
Thanks for the nominations, everyone who submitted them. I don't expect to win it, since Skoolmunkee tends to selfishly hog that price, like the greedy communist that she is.
Those were my two cents.
If you have any other questions, please deposit a quarter.

Gotta' say I'm surprised that I was nominated, seeing's how I haven't updated for awhile, but I'm honored nonetheless, thanks to whoever nominated me, or however it works.
By the way, I haven't updated because I don't want to, I just don't have my flashdrive…
Cease this, honkus!
