2006-07-10 [pumpkinhead]: I'm thinking i'll put something here. It's still going, right?
2006-07-10 [pumpkinhead]: Just... anything that has a Christian twist to it?
2006-07-11 [Amanda Bastian]: Yes, it's still going. lol. You have to be good about putting Christianity in it. ^_^. Something nice and something that either is in the Bible or something/some
2006-07-26 [Sonra]: dragon.. christian.... mmmm ok.....
2006-07-26 [Amanda Bastian]: THe thing is that the banner above has an artwork background and the artwork is called "Satan's Destruction".
2006-07-26 [pumpkinhead]: Haha, ok, i kinda have an idea. Lemme just fix it up a bit, hopefully i'll get it on here soon.
2006-07-26 [Amanda Bastian]: okay. cool! ^_^ I can't wait to see it!
2006-07-26 [pumpkinhead]: Ok, got it up. Hope it's not too big! Not really complex or symbollic either, but, i didn't really draw it with this contest in mind.. :P
2006-07-27 [Amanda Bastian]: lol. It looks okay to me. ^_^ thanx for putting it up
2006-07-27 [Kuehne]: Doesn't seem like this contest has alot of entries. My chances might be better if I enter something, huh? I might just do that.
2006-07-28 [Kuehne]: I'm new to elftown, however.. how would you go about uploading a picture to this page?
2006-07-28 [Kuehne]: So, you must first upload the image to your "house" or elsewhere on elfwood before having it posted here?
2006-07-29 [iippo]: Yes. :) If your image is bigger than what your house allows (500 px wide), you can message [Sunrose] for wiki uploading priviledges that will allow you to upload it straight to the wiki without size reductions.
2006-07-29 [Kuehne]: ok, thank you iippo
2006-07-29 [iippo]: Can't wait to see your entry Kuehne. :)
2006-07-29 [Kuehne]: wait no longer :)
2006-07-29 [Kuehne]: It's an older piece, but I hope you like it
2006-07-29 [Kuehne]: do we have a limit on how may pieces we can submit in this contests?
2006-07-29 [iippo]: Beautiful. :) Is it done with charcoal?
2006-07-29 [Kuehne]: yeah, I love charcoal. Graphite too. Most of my stuff on elfwood is either charcoal or graphite (with a few things done in ballpoint pen)
2006-08-02 [Amanda Bastian]: Wow! Great job! Thanx for entering!
2006-08-02 [Kuehne]: ty.. is there a limit on how many we can submit.. i know most competitions have a limit of two. I was thinking I might do a newer one for the contest.
2006-08-02 [Amanda Bastian]: yw. Yes, two is the limit. ^^
2006-08-03 [Kuehne]: I had an idea for a competition.. but i don't know how to go about getting it started :(
2006-08-03 [Amanda Bastian]: I started out by working with the banner. Then I just wrote down what I thought would work for a normal intro for an art contest.
2006-08-04 [Kuehne]: Good suggestion.. I'll begin on a banner soon.. ty
2006-08-05 [Amanda Bastian]: you're welcome ^^
2006-08-09 [Kuehne]: Ok.. new competition started, but I don't know how to advertize it well.
2006-08-09 [Cia_mar]: ooo i will enter.. is this still an active contest?
2006-08-09 [Kuehne]: thank you iippo.. i put it under art contests, but i didn't see an "edit this page" botton on contest wiki... how would i add my contest there?
2006-08-09 [Amanda Bastian]: This one?
2006-08-09 [Cia_mar]: yes this one.. is it still active?
2006-08-09 [Kuehne]: very much active.. i'd love to see your work
2006-08-09 [Cia_mar]: ok.. i will post.. what is the limit for entries?
2006-08-09 [Kuehne]: They tell me two entries per person.. i asked the same thing.
2006-08-09 [Amanda Bastian]: Yes it is! ^^ Go ahead! I'm putting up the rewards soon for the winners
2006-08-09 [Kuehne]: yay!! rewards!! I need to get working on a second entry.

2006-08-11 [Amanda Bastian]: Fantastic! I'll be looking foward to seeing your piece when it is finished. ^^
2006-08-11 [Kuehne]: It shouldn't be too much longer... I've got a good start on it and I think you'll like it
2006-08-11 [Amanda Bastian]: Wow, that's really good! Good job
2006-08-12 [Kuehne]: ty.. i'm glad you like it.
2006-08-12 [Amanda Bastian]: yw
2006-08-21 [Kuehne]: So.. are we waiting for more entries or are we getting ready to vote?
2006-08-22 [Amanda Bastian]: oh, gosh! I'm so sorry! I'll start gathering judges. Good luck to you guys!
2006-08-22 [Kuehne]: no biggie.. i was just curious.. *and the cat dies*
2006-08-22 [Amanda Bastian]: Thanks for reminding me though....why did the cat die??
2006-08-22 [iippo]: "Curiosity killed the cat."
2006-08-22 [Amanda Bastian]: Oooh. XD
2006-08-22 [Lady of Lore]: Welcome ^_^ id be glad to judge
2006-08-30 [Amanda Bastian]: ^_^
I need two more judges and then we can finally judge! As the host, I'm not going to take part in the judging. Thanks!
2006-08-30 [Kuehne]: Well.. I would judge.. but I'd be biased
2006-08-30 [Amanda Bastian]: lol. ^_^
2006-08-30 [Cia_mar]: yeah me too probably!
2006-08-30 [Amanda Bastian]: okay, but if you want to that's fine with me. you're just not able to vote for yourself. (that's usually considered cheating so..).
2006-08-30 [Cia_mar]: lol.. was just kidding!
2006-08-30 [Amanda Bastian]: XD oooohh
2006-09-11 [pumpkinhead]: Four more? We need, like... an advertising commitee, or something.
2006-09-11 [Amanda Bastian]: yeah...I think I might have someone take over the wiki while I'm gone for three to four months. *sighs* Ah! I think I might get help from my fellow christian friends.
2006-09-17 [Kuehne]: anyone taking over this wiki? should we do a poll or something?
2006-09-17 [Amanda Bastian]: We don't have enough judges....
2006-09-17 [Kuehne]: that's why i suggested a poll
2006-09-17 [Amanda Bastian]: alright. I'm working on it
2006-09-17 [Kuehne]: cool.. ty
2006-09-17 [Amanda Bastian]: yw
2006-09-19 [Amanda Bastian]:
2006-09-19 [Amanda Bastian]: grrr...didn't work. I'm not good at this...
2006-09-19 [iippo]: Edit the page itself (press the "Edit thsi page" button).
2006-09-19 [Amanda Bastian]: I know, but I was just testing the poll on how it would look on the wiki itself... right now it's not working
2006-09-19 [iippo]: It doesn't work on comments, because no one but you can edit your comment, and voting is kind of like editing, I guess.
2006-09-19 [Amanda Bastian]: aaahhh, I see. thanks
2006-09-26 [Cia_mar]: since the poll isn't up yet... are we able to change our submissions still?
2006-09-26 [Amanda Bastian]: Yeah, go ahead. I'm still looking for judges soo... lol. But when all positions are filled for judges no one can change or submit anything
2006-09-26 [Cia_mar]: cool thanks
2006-09-26 [Cia_mar]: how many entries can we post?
2006-09-26 [Amanda Bastian]: You're welcome. Two entries

2006-10-05 [Artsieladie]: He he I went right to work at it & here's what came to light. Actually, I had something a bit different in mind when I started, but this is the direction I was led in. God is GREAT! *huggles to all* ^__^
2006-10-05 [Cia_mar]: love the hair!
2006-10-05 [Artsieladie]: When I picture Jesus in my mind, I always picture Him with lovely hair. :D

2006-10-05 [Artsieladie]: lmbo! Yeah, but..."Revenge is mine", sayeth the Lord. *grins*
2006-10-05 [Artsieladie]: I changed it. I decided that "you" might be better, although the "we" meant mankind as a whole. :P
2006-10-05 [Cia_mar]: *confused* "you" "we" huh? i must be asleep
2006-10-05 [Artsieladie]: I wish I was asleep. I'm so tired, but have to make a trip in the car, which I dread, so sleep won't come! :/
2006-10-05 [Cia_mar]: :(
2006-10-05 [Amanda Bastian]: Of course you can Shadowsoul. ^_^

2006-11-03 [Cia_mar]: feel free to spread the word about it!
2006-11-03 [Kuehne]: so.. about this contest.. is it ever going to be judged??
2006-11-03 [Cia_mar]: still waitng on more judges
2006-11-03 [Kuehne]: i don't mean to be a pain, but.. why? it doesn't really seem like anyone is interested and can't four people judge it? It's not so much that I'm impatient, but I don't want to see this contest die out without a winner announced.
2006-11-03 [Amanda Bastian]: Well, i guess I could be the fifth judge. ^_^ . lol. I know who the other missing judge is. He said yes. lol. He's my bf. XD. I'll have to get him.
2006-11-03 [Cia_mar]: ok
2006-11-03 [Amanda Bastian]: lol
2006-11-03 [Kuehne]: i'd feel funny judging a contest of which i am a part.
2006-11-03 [Amanda Bastian]: So would I
2006-11-03 [Cia_mar]: ditto
2006-11-03 [Amanda Bastian]: lol
2007-02-02 [Cia's girl]: I wouldn't feel funny. But i dont have to worry about that because im not judging
2007-02-03 [Amanda Bastian]: XD yeah. lol
I seriously need to get somewhere with this contest. Geez. i've been slacking majorly. I'll see if I can get the judging running soon. Sorry about everything
2007-02-03 [Shadowsoul]: yes, please get the judging done soon. i will only be here on wednesday afternoons and saturday afternoon's my time. please let me know when to judge or if i'm not around please message [silent_voice] and tell him to pass the message on if he can to my school email
2007-02-03 [Amanda Bastian]: Of course. ^^
I believe we should begin the judging quite soon. I'll let you know.
2007-03-20 [kittykittykitty]: When will the judging begin? :)
2007-03-21 [Amanda Bastian]: I'm hoping soon... I could never get to it
2007-06-15 [Amanda Bastian]: ok...here's the deal. when contestant position #10 is filled then we'll start the judging. i'm getting tired of my procrastinatio
2007-06-15 [Hobbit teen]: I really like the one called "Have you... forgotten" for it to me seems like a true expression of the evil that we have done in america!
2007-06-15 [Artsieladie]: Thanks. I agree, but not just in America. Mankind's greed & disregard for the world that God so wonderfully & perfectly created, has made it so tragically ugly & loathsome in so many ways. *really sad*
2007-06-15 [Hobbit teen]: it is very truely sad... but the way i look at it...we will someday be judged by the all knowing lord on judgement day and those innocent on the whole ordeil with war on terror will be saved and those like president bush and Al quaida will burn here in pain and terror *vengful for those whose lives have been hurt*
2007-06-16 [Artsieladie]: bush has a lot to answer for. For all of the innocent lives that have been taken to satisfy his greed, b/c everyone knows it's all about the oil & him making money on it. *sneers in disgust*
2007-06-16 [Hobbit teen]: Exactly right on the money!!! I'm glad someone other than my family understand that it is all about his greed on his oil rigs!!!
2007-06-16 [Artsieladie]: ...& chaney right along with him! The blood these two have on their hands, their conscience, if they have any, is so ...well, there is no word that describes it. I say anyone that supports these two should be the ones to march right over there & fight bush's war for him & send all of these innocent people home that have no other choice, but to follow his orders. Americans need to wake up & make it a point to keep themselves better informed, in tune, with all that is going on. We are slowly losing our rights & freedoms & most Americans aren't even aware of it. Our soldiers are supposedly fighting for them, while people like bush & chaney are slowly & methodically taking them away. *angry*
2007-06-19 [Lady of Lore]: we need good people to get jobs in the govornment...n
But I do have to say that now that we are in these countries, liberated some of the people, and especially those who have come forth on these documentaries on tv we cannot pull out for thier sakes. I'm sure that those with hatred target these poor people. If we pull out, we condem them to death. What is worse than people dieing is to give them hope and then to take it away. Heart's change and those poor soldiers need to know that we do not value thier livs as nothing.
Remember the troops who came back from the other past wars? Korean war, vietnam war, etc. Were they welcomed back and thanked for putting thier lives on the line (even if the cause was the right one, they still went and fought and put thier lives in danger). I don't think that they ever were. If I remember people treated them like traitors, shunned them, and had no pity for the trauma they experienced. I know war is hard, and it may not be the right answer but those who have suffered and died, we cannot call thier pain worth nothing. Even if it is not the best cause, people sacrifice.
I agree that we as people all over the world need to be more informed. But I also think that we need to take into account everything. I feel so sorry for the young boys that are filled with hatred, I feel sad that groups are willing to pay a family if the father or son goes on a suicide bombing. I feel sad that people hate so much. Americans need to not be so arrogant, we need to try to be kinder, to show the world a better way than hatred because if we go to other contries and all we do is complain how it is not like our home...
Think of it this way, someone from another contry comes to where you live, micks the customs, questions your values, and turns thier face away in disgust at your food? That would make you resent them and the place where they came from. So I think too, that people as tourists need to be kinder too. That may help. In some contries tourists may be all the contact the people have with a country, and what a sad poor example many tourists are.
Sorry, I don't mean to lecture. I just felt moved by the discussion to add my thoughts. If you disagree that's ok. ^_^ I'm not offended, I think that people have a right to thier own ideas.
~Lady of Lore
2007-06-19 [Artsieladie]: I agree. We Americans, but especially our beloved soldiers, have been put in a position that now we cannot just simply walk away from or turn a blind eye to. I have & have had several family members that served &/or are serving in the military. I never would shun them or disrespect them for their service to this country. It's the people that sit at the top giving the orders, mainly bush & chaney, that I'm angry with. One does not have to support bush's war to support & respect the troops. Personally, I don't think anyone should put down, belittle &/or mock another's culture & customs. I like to learn about the customs, cultures & beliefs of others. If we all were open to & understanding of these aforementioned w/o judgment, we could hope for more harmony & peace in the world. :P)
2007-06-20 [Hobbit teen]: well said Lady of lore well said Artsie!!!
2009-05-14 [BlueAngel]: wait no, damn I suck at this
2009-05-14 [Amanda Bastian]: wo so much has happened

2010-09-07 [kittykittykitty]: Has a winner been announced?
