This is a contest about making smileys that look medieval (think knights, fair ladies and violent kings). It's OK to make them pseudo-medieval, like a knight using a computer. But bright ideas are shown with a torch, not a light bulb, and so on.

If this contest becomes popular, other themes will follow.

Images must be created by Elftowners and posted here by the original artist. Which means, no matter how much you might like a particular image on somebody's house, you are not allowed to add it here. This includes random images from the net too. MAKE YOUR OWN DARN IMAGES, DON'T STEAL THEM AND TRY TO CLAIM THEM AS YOUR OWN! That makes us angry, very angry indeed.
If you use another image to create your smiley, you must explain this when submitting it, and you must be allowed to use the other image (it can for example be another submission to this contest, see 5.).

2. Format
The smileys should be 25 pixels high and in PNG format. They should look good on any light background, but possible also on dark backgrounds.

3. Submit as much as you want
All members can submit as many smileys as they want.

To upload many images at ones, you can use the feature 'Upload a folder of images' that is shown on your house.
This feature allows you to upload one, multiple images or zip-files to a wikipage.
Once you click this link you can follow the instructions. See also uploading images.

5. Freedom to the smileys!
By submitting the smileys to this contest, you agree to that they are free for anyone to use anywhere. Others are allowed to use and to modify the smileys. But no one can take away that you made the smiley.

6. Prizes
All smileys with enough (it depend on how voters there are) votes will be used on public emotions and all smileys with less enough votes will be published on medival smileys. Your name will always be associated with the smileys and you have unlimited bragging rights. If you get 3 or more smileys on public emotions, you'll get a Masters of Building badge (or the appropriate upgrade).

Voting will take place on this page with a multivoting poll.

7. Deadline
15th of May 2008. Submissions are welcome afterwards, but it will be much harder to get enough votes then.

8. Wanted smileys
Here are some suggestions, but of course there are more. Try to make emotions not already made!

Happy, angry, crazy happy, in a hurry, loving, no clue, saint, money loving, studying, bright idea, starving, eating, authoritarian, frightened...

2849) Which medieval smileys do you find useful? (Administrator: [Hedda])

2008-02-25 [Hedda]: Please note that this is just a suggestion for a contest so far!

You're welcome to submit, but it's not 100% certain that there will be a contest (but of course we kind of have to start a contest if the submissions are flooding in). And the rules might change!

2008-02-29 [Hedda]: It's officially open now! <img:stuff/sing.gif>

2008-02-29 [SilverFire]: "Place submissions below this paragraph. Put all your " IS that sentence just for suspense? :P

2008-02-29 [The Scarlet Pumpernickle]: erm.... I think the deadline might have to change, unless our smileys can travel back in time to appear on the page. :P

2008-03-03 [Hedda]: Damn! Why does the year have to change name every bloody year nowadays!

I mean: The Prussian-French war started 1870 and that never changes. If it was good enough then, it's good enough now!

2008-03-03 [The Scarlet Pumpernickle]: lol erm... I think it's to create more work for students... if everything happened in 1942 than there wouldn't be much to memorize. :P

2008-03-10 [Mikie9191]: I see emotions should be max 25px high... is there an upper limit for the width? or should they jus be 25 x 25 ?

2008-03-10 [Artsieladie]: Hmm...well, maybe the size of the moods? 40 pixels wide X 25 pixels high. :P

2008-03-10 [Mikie9191]: ok, thanks artsie
where does it say they're 25x40? you'll have to ignore my intermittent stupidity - I dont have much experience with moods (other than those of my kids)

2008-03-10 [Mikie9191]: I took the liberty of adding a small title-picture thingy to this page. If anyone doesnt like it feel free to take it down and I'll consider myself repremanded.
