Well the contest is drawing to a close. Tommorow, I will email the judges the voting forms and instruction for retrieving the skins. The judging deadline is 1 week.

The channel #WSC on irc.winbolo.us will now be soley for the Judges. Non-Judges and contestants, please do not join that channel.

I have set a new channel (#WS) for everyone else who would like to talk about the Contest or Skins. Anyone can join that channel.

Well, I just emailed the Judging Vote Cards. There is a 1 week deadline to submit the judging forms back. The deadline will be July 12th by midnight, one week from today.

Lots of ppl have been asking me if I will be judging too. The answer is no. I've worked with several of the skin contestants in helping them test their skins and providing feedback, so I feel I'm too biased and thus disqualify myself from judging.

Suicide: Well, after I receive the forms, I have to tally it up. It may take a day or two after the judging deadline. So around the 13th or 14th or so I should have the results ready to post.

With 8 judges reporting, here are the results of the Winbolo Skin Contest. Some categories had a clear overwhelming winner. Other categories resulted in a very close race, with the winner winning by only 1 vote. So without further ado here it is:

Original Contest

Best Realistic Wall/Block: Sheeps' CivSkin
Best Realistic Tank: Minhiriath's BoloReloaded
Best Realistic Pillbox: Minhiriath's BoloReloaded
Best Realistic Grass: Minhiriath's BoloReloaded
Best Realistic Swamp: Minhiriath's BoloReloaded
Best Realistic Tree/Forest:Underdog's SnowBolo
Best Realistic X-Tra: Minhiriath's BoloReloaded's Explosion
Best Screen: Suicide's Radioactive

Extended Contest

Best Realistic Sea: Underdog's SnowBolo
Best Realistic Ocean: Underdog's SnowBolo
Best Realistic Road: Sheeps' CivSkin

Winbolo Skin Grand Champion: Minhiriath
Winbolo Skin Grand Wizard: Minhiriath

Explanation: The Winbolo Skin Contest Champion is the one who wins the most categories in the Original Contest Categories. Winning the Wall Category counts as two wins. Minhiriath wins the title with 5 wins vs Sheeps's 2 wins (due to wall counted as two wins), Underdog's one win, and Suicide's one win. The Winbolo Skin Contest Wizard is the one who wins the most categories in the Original Contest and Extended Contest. Although Minhiriath did not win any categories of the Extended Contest, he had such a big lead in the Original Contest that he also wins this title with his 5 wins vs Sheep's 3 wins, Underdog's 3 wins, and Suicide's 1 win.

I thought I'd award an honorary award to those who have won at least 1 vote from a judge for first place in that category.

Honorary Awards
(for those who didn't win in that category, but received at least 1 first place vote from 1 or more judges):

Realistic Wall: Minhiriath
Realistic Tank: Underdog
Realistic Pillbox: AJR
Realistic Grass: Sheeps
Realistic Swamp: Sheeps
Realistic Tree: Minhiriath
Realistic X-Tra: Ky (his mines in BlueReSkin)
Screen: Sheeps (AquaBattle and CivSkin), Minhiriath (BoloReloaded), and Suicide (Sui_bio)
Realistic Sea: Minhiriath and Sheeps
Realistic Ocean: Minhiriath
Realistic Road: Minhiriath

What Judges liked about individual Skins

I asked judges, if they wanted to, to write what they liked about the individual skins. So here is the tally. Some judges only wrote comments for one or two skins, other wrote comments for every skin. There also was one honorary judge, who did not vote, but who did write comments on what he liked about the skins (Thanks Sheeps!).

The "*" separate comments made by different judges.

AquaBattle

I have never played on a mac. but i like the brightness of your screen. it makes all the items easier to see.
*
Pretty nice looking skin, I like what you did with the screen, the original pillbox design, and the original tank design.
*
It was obvious you spend much time into this skin. I really liked how you made the pills and bases. Keep up the good work sheeps!

BlueReskin

I feel that the tint of blue used was very easy on the eyes. when you play bolo a long time a screen that is easy on the eyes is a hard thing to comeby.
*
LOVE THE MINES DUDE!
*
I liked having a blue tank Razz It was obvious to me you spent time on the mines, tank, bases, pills.
*
Interesting marshmallow mines (yet screen doesnít match), and the blue is a good bold color.

BoloReloaded

Beautiful skin! Clearly a lot of time was spent on this one, and I find it very playable. Definitely the best overall skin Iíve seen so far.
*
one of my fav. skins. i use this skin a lot because it looks like a lot of time and effort has gone into the making of this skin. big props to min, this skin is awesome. love the 3D effect u went for on the tanks and the bases. craters were outstanding. since all of us have started out with the default skin we are used to the images, i like how you didn't switch to brand-new images, but instead made the old ones we are so used to better as a whole
*
Phenomenal Skin. Not much more I can say this skin is virtually perfect. I donít think any of the other judges noticed this but you changed the lgm making his armpits fatter. I had to go to quad view to see this but I notice. Nice job all around with the skin
*
This is definitely the best "entire remake" skin.
*
Min min min min minÖ This skin was spectacular, where do I start. EVERYTHING was great! I think you just needed a flashier screen
*
Great looking skin, overall best I have seen. Really sharp with good-looking graphics. Blocks are smooth, grass and trees are fun and interesting, pills have great texture.


CivSkin
Outstanding alternative skin. The quality of this skin is excellent, earning a close 2nd place in 4 of the above categories.
*
Nice Walls I like it, reminds me of what pyramids looked like. I like what you did with the outer walls of grass, the yellow lines. The deep, and shallow sea look very good. Nice variation from everything else Iíve seen.
*
This was one of the coolest looks skins Iíve seen in while. I really liked the walls and screen.
*
I really like the idea of putting sand near the water!

GreyWinBolo

Excellent screen, though Iíd like it to be a little more clear which box I have selected on the left.
*
I like what you did with the outer walls of grass, the yellow lines. The deep, and shallow sea look very good. Nice variation from everything else Iíve seen
*
I liked the measure of shots. It can be very helpful in games in tight situations to see how many shots you have left.
*
Good straightforward screen, much more interesting then default.

r1p1tup

loved the screen. not too much not to less.
*
Nice work AJR I liked the 3d affect
*
Great 3d texture on pills and bases. Trees feel like Christmas!

Radioactive

Very nice screen. I like what you did with the pillbox icon on the left, the double pillbox with the lgm nice work. The LGM WINBOLO and gauges on the right are nice. Great work with this one.
*
Whoa.. this screen is amazing.. keep up the excellent work
*
I like the hazard icon behind the main window. Nice fun screen and nice placement of lgm with the 2 pills on pill function button.

SnowBolo

This skin introduces some of the more radical changes that actually remain playable.
*
trees! trees! trees! i found the forest on this skin to be outstanding. by far the most original skin i have seen in the contest
*
I really like the pillbox, shallow and deep sea
*
Ud, I know how many hours you spent on this little baby of yours. You treated this like it was your baby Razz. I think the trees, pills, blocks, water, omg everything was great
*
Great creative skin, all themed elements fit well together. Realistic trees and bright bases. Sea and Ocean are well made. The tank smiley also adds some fun. Nice sharp images.

Sui_bio_1

I really liked the bio-hazard symbol in the start up of the screen. everything of the screen matched well with the whole bio-hazard theme.
Nice screen. I see that you have changed all aspects of it. I love how you made the headstone and skull smeared with a hint of red looks phenomenal. I can't wait to see your next skin.
*
Whoa.. this screen is also amazing. Keep up the good work
*
Interesting concept, and icon behind main screen is nice. Bases have x-mas feel.

Thanks:

Thanks for the judges: Fermat, Fubar, Hawk, Indiana, LRL, Q-mandabomb, Ren, and Wolverine.

Thanks to these judges for providing feedback: Fermat, Fubar, Hawk, Renny, Q-Mandabomb.

Thanks to Sheeps for giving helpful advice at the start as well as throughout the contest, for announcing this contest and its results via the wbn news, and for being an honorary judge who provided feedback on the skins.

Thanks to Ren for the idea of having a #WSC and for registering and taking care of the channel during the three weeks of the entry period and then during the week of judging. This proved to be very usefull and beneficial.

Thanks to Underdog for creating the original Winbolo contest with his Winbolo Map Contest, and providing a very good foundation and framework from which to hold a contest. This Skin Contest borrows very heavily the framework Underdog provided for holding a contest.
