Art Contest - The Gateway Icon

    Greetings all, a while ago when the Gateway first launched there was some discussion about the group's Icon and whether the current one suits the group, so Edana and I got to talking about it and this is our solution...

    We're going to let YOU, the members, design it.

    This contest will run from now until 11:59 pm on the 11th of May EST and you can post your entries at any point in that time frame. The winner will be decided via a poll to be held after entries close.

    When creating your entry try to keep it under 200x200 pixels. Any bigger and they may not fit properly. All you need to do to enter is post your entry below and either Edana or I will add it to the list.

    Other then that there aren't really any rules to this contest so you can use whatever method you like to create your entry, so what are you waiting for? Go ahead and enter 

    If you have any questions feel free to ask below.

    Thanks for getting this ball rolling on this, Goldie. Looking forward to seeing what folks come up with!

    One time you said "[...] you can post your entries [...]", the other time you said "When creating your entry [...]". What now? :P
    I'm asking because there isn't much interest in this project yet and some people might want to post more than one pic, so that would give us more to choose from.

    I think if people wanted to submit multiple options that's completely fine. What Golden and I were thinking is that people will post any submissions in the comments here. Once it's done, I'll copy all of them over to a separate thread in The Gateway (which is where we normally hold the Poll discussions) and people can see all the entries there. We'll use the poll tool for voting.  Does that make sense?

    Just an idea. :P
    I'll make it 200|200 when needed.

    I like that.

    That's simple, but really good.

    I still like the idea of using that gate just outside Solitude (The one about half-way up the path, just before the actual City Gate).

    Otherwise, we could always just use an image of one of Skyrim's border crossings (This being an example). Though then again, that would probably end up looking a little too bland.
