Quote from: JimBob
I have two objections. For one ive seen the bg winterstick used elsewhere. Not the logo or the thing across the top, but the general bg has been used many other places. For two, I feel that it was unfair the wya the final ten were chosen. Many people were excluded because they werent liked. If I had submitted any Im sure that they would NOT have been chosen because of my reputation.


First, the BG I used is only 3 filters in photoshop.  It is very easy to make and the tutorial is easy to find on the internet.  I assure you that my BG was 100% made by me.  All of it was done in photoshop using filters, text, and area fills.

Two, you don't even know HOW the finalist where chosen.  We asked active members on GT IRC to go through and choose which ones the liked best, we then combined the list and talied the votes, excluding ones that didn't follow the rules (your Gideontech matrix one had youdesktops.com in it to, you obvously ripped it off).   We (well, I) didn't take into consideration who made it, but rather I asked 3 questions: does it have a dark background color (I like darker backgrounds); can I use this as a desktop (alot of the images submited where more like can you photochop the best GT image, instead of making a good desktop; and finally does it suck (not everyone in Gideontech has good artistic ability).
NOte: Just because your wasn't choosen doesn't mean it sucked.

OMFG winter.
1. I do know how they were chosen, its in the first post in this thread.
2. Fine, IDK if you made yours or stole it personally
3. Im not with Keck, I dont know why Gid decided to say Keck/JimBob. As we have stated many times we are different people. I didnt make those backgrounds he did. Personally his sucked, and I know he stole that one. Hes no good with Bryce. We do occasionally have the same ip in posts because at school the pcs use a proxy server, which has one external ip for all of the computers on the server, im sure you know that. So Im not bitching because mine wasnt chosen, I didnt make one.

Let me tell you how I made it, start with a white BG,
goto filter>texture>grain (100, 100, vertical)
reset your colors to default (black ontop) goto filter>artistic>neon glow (5, 20, your glow color)
then goto filter>stylize>glow edges (1, 5, 1)

wow looks alot like what I have doesn't it? now stfu.

And if you still feel I didn't make it, then show me the site that I ripped the image off from.

People were picked due to popularity in irc?

RaDragon - Ok, everyone likes her- she comes in irc like 3 times a year
Shr3K- Never seen him, don't really know who he is
winterstick- ok, sure
x24- the original spammer, ok we like him, but i pick on him more than anyone else in irc
merlinicorpus- he's running this, so he obviouslly rigged it :P
DJ Bowen- just like shr3k, never seen him (outside of the forums)
MaverikV- same as above
LordThanatos- sure
DistantCube- he catches alot of slack on the irc servers, he'll tell you he isn't a favorite person (not my opinion)
ATFNegotiator- he's more of less a lump that pm's people he likes on irc, he hardly ever talks

If it was biased, I do believe the top 10 would have came out completely different. Maybe not enough people liked the other backgrounds, that ever cross your mind?

 :lol:  Damn my anti-war stance  :P

Also, WS, don't worry about people telling you that you didn't make it, it's just because they can't make it. Just forget them mate.

x24, I didnt see that post that Keck made, im gonna have to kick him in the nuts when I see him next.

everyone else, ill say it again. Not picked because of popularity, but NOT picked because of being hated. I cant think of anyone else that is a good example but me. Im really the onlyone off the top of my head that everyone hates that much for no apparent reason.
