Character Design Contest ♯87- Time Travel Poll

Character Design Contest ♯88- Sports TGT

Ok guys, for this weeks contest, I want you to create something sporty for me. You can do any sport you want, Baseball, Golf, Football/ Soccer, Track Sprinting, I’m not all that fussy. But, you don’t have to make it just normal. Consider this a two great tastes contest if you will. I want to see Superhero Sportsmen, Sci-Fi sportsmen, hell even a vampire with a baseball bat if you want. Hopefully, this will get your creative juices flowing.

As per usual, no limits on entries this week and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). The winner gets to claim a custom made item from dblade to be put into heromachine, so long as the item conforms to his prize rules, which you can find here: http://www.heromachine.com/forum/the-heromachine-art-gallery/dblades-whiz-bang-item-dispenser/. Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges that I am hosting: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warnings. Only post characters that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

Today’s Downtime.

Good evening!

We’d very sorry for the unexpected downtime today. We discovered a few areas that were causing massive site slowdowns, the biggest one being the forum software. With hundreds of users and gigabytes of data, we’ve simply outstripped the plugins ability to support our users.

For now, the forums are down. We will be investigating other forum software over the next few days and converting the forums over. Rest assured that all your content has been backed-up.

Please stay tuned for further updates. This is a very high priority issue for us, and we appreciate your patience while we move HeroMachine forward with shiny new software.

Next CDC Poll TOMORROW

My schedule does not allow me to get around to judging the CDC today so I will have the poll up for it tomorrow instead of today

Character Design Contest ♯87- Time Travel

So, this’ll be a fun one. I want you guys to create a time travelling character for me this week, in honour of the return of Doctor Who this coming Saturday. It doesn’t matter how they travel through time (provided obviously that it isn’t by TARDIS, because that’s copyrighted) or, if you feel so inclined as to put them in a scene, where they end up, I just want to see some cool time travellers.

As per usual, no limits on entries this week and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). The winner gets to claim a custom made item from dblade to be put into heromachine, so long as the item conforms to his prize rules, which you can find here: http://www.heromachine.com/forum/the-heromachine-art-gallery/dblades-whiz-bang-item-dispenser/. Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.
