Then i'll drop from the celing and kill the guard with the bannana from my lunch.....

    I could of gone on forever with that.

    I realize that, but this is just an exercise in creativity. To keep things fair, I wanted to have everyone use the same websites, regardless of shipping. This keeps currency exchange problems out of the equation, makes sure everyone can get the same items for the same price, things like that. In real life I know that you would order from a local website, but this isn't meant for real life. This is just make-believe. For the sake of the exercise, please use American currency for your budget and the websites listed above, so that we're all on a level playing field. This is why shipping is not part of the budget.

    Rank,
    Must this be a closed loop system?
    can we enter more then one Idea?
    Is the Judging based on looks?

    I have half a mind to go to the HomeDespot and mock one up


    Good Luck

    CBB, it doesn't have to be a closed loop system, it can be anything you want.

    Judging is based on whatever criteria I feel like judging it by, so that people don't start catering what would have been a great idea just to try to win a contest. I'm looking for creativity. Originality. Functionality. Aesthetics. Whatever. This should be looked at more like an exercise rather than a contest.

    Yes, you may enter as many times as you like, as long as you are not blatantly looking at someone else's entries, stealing their ideas and claiming them as your own. You may see someone's entry, realize that they had perfected a problem spot of yours and modify your entry.

    Just have fun with this. That's the point.

    We have had one entry so far for this contest, and I'm going to extend the deadline for entries to the end of the month. I'll post the entry received later tonight. If any of the rest of you want to put up an entry, you can either post it here or send it to dave or I by email. My email address is rankenphile(at)gmail.com.

    All entries must be received by midnight PST Monday, July 31st.

    I also wanted to ask you guys what you thought about the contest. Is this something you would like to see more of? Was this one too tough in its demands? Would you like to see more in terms of prizes for these types of contests? Your feedback helps a lot.

    Thanks.

    Your feedback helps a lot.
    Clarification: I'll hurt any meatbags who don't leave feedback. Starting with you.

    (anyone play that game? It was on VGCats this week...reminded me off it )

    Anyway. We'll add a poll after the competition is over. So hurry up and get those entries in.
