    ho, ho, ho! Forum comp #4 - Create a Christmas season sig. [ended]

    It's competition time again!

    Outside it's freezing cold, Father Frost forces us to stay indoors, so no planking/owling/batmanning for a while. Instead; a cosy fireplace, hot chocolate, and........Christmas!

    What better way to celebrate the start of December and the upcoming holidays than by having a Christmas season forum competition.

    This competition is going to be really simple. All you need to do is create a forum signature (sig) with a Christmas season theme and post a reply in this competition thread while attaching the sig to your post. Easy peasy!

    Your sig may contain references to any celebration held during the Christmas season all over the world, such as:

    - Christmas
    - Hanukkah
    - New Year's Eve
    - Sinterklaas
    - Jul
    - Каляды
    - etc, etc.


    THE PRIZES!
    This month, Crystal Dynamics is giving away 3 sets of classic Eidos games, for those interested in snagging these for their collections. Plus, every set also includes a Tomb Raider 15-Year Celebration NYCC "The Depths" by Camilla d’Errico Mini-Print.


    (click image to enlarge)

    Set 1: TR I-III on PC + "The Depths" Mini-Print

    Set 2: Legacy of Kain I & II on PC + "The Depths" Mini-Print

    Set 3: Final Fantasy VII on PC, paired with a cool Japanese 3DO copy of Gex + "The Depths" Mini-Print

    First place winner gets first choice which set he or she will receive. Second place winner gets second choice and third place winner gets the remaining set.

    Note: Displayed mini-print not actual size.
    How to enter:
    Create a Christmas season themed image and insert it into your forum sig by going to the Edit Signature page in your User CP and following the instructions there.

    Note for newly registered members: You first need to make 2 forum posts and wait maximum 1 hour before you can use sigs. This is a standard anti-spam measure used on internet forums.

    When you successfully inserted the image into your sig, come back to this thread and post a reply while ticking the "Show your signature" checkbox.

    Creating a forum avatar with a Christmas season theme to compliment your sig is not required, but certainly encouraged!

    How do I win?
    First and second place winners will be picked by a jury.

    This jury will consist of Eidos Forums staff members and/or Square Enix employees.

    The (forum) names of the jury members and their votes will be publicly available once the winners have been announced.

    Third place winner will be determined by random draw, using www.random.org

    The rules

    • Maximum 1 entry per person/household.
    • Keep your entry clean, in good taste and in accordance with our forum TOU.
    • The deadline for submitting entries is Thursday, 15 December 2011, 12:00 CET
    • If we receive a low number of entries, we may extend the deadline.
    • In the event of a tie, the person who posted first wins.
    • Contestants can only win 1st or 2nd or 3rd prize; not a combination of those.
    • Any entry which the forum staff deems inappropriate or not complying with the rules, will not qualify and will be removed from this thread.
    • Winners will be notified via PM and email. Winners must respond with their postal address within 2 weeks of being notified or else their prize will go to someone else.
    • Judges decisions are final.


    Good luck, everyone!

    Welcome to the forum, Kong Robert

    Yes, just make one more post (there are plenty of threads around here where you can join the discussions about TR9) and then wait 1 hour and then the user title under your name will go from "Registered User" to "New Player" and then you can use sigs

    ---

    hehe, very clever idea, tombraider_93!

    I'm curious....the Eidos logo seems to be translucent, how did you do that?

    Well, you made your current sig image, didn't you? So you must know at least a little

    And that's all you need, really. You don't need any fancy programs like Photoshop to make an entry. Just writing "merry christmas" on your current image with MS Paint will do.

    Remember, while 1st and 2nd place will be judged, third place winner will be determined by random draw. So no matter how good your entry is, as long as it's a valid entry, you always have a chance of winning something!

    haha, I think she may be right

    lol, so you used the family xmas tree? Priceless!

    Probably a dumb question but does it have to have Lara in it? All I've read is that it's got to be Christmas themed.

    ^ Correct. You can have whatever you want in your sig (providing it doesn't violate any forum rules, of course) and as long as it has some sort of holiday season tie-in, it'll be a valid entry
