TIME TO VOTE! NARROW IT DOWN FROM THE TOP 30 TO THE TOP 15!!
http://laserpointerforums.com/f48/t...vote-your-favorites-now-68979.html#post995077


^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^




SO I got to thinkin', what's something that could bring some zazz to this forum? And came up with -- what's better than some friendly competition to inspire some awesomeness?

Anyone can enter (fo' free) and anyone can win! :D BUT PLEASE READ THE RULES BELOW!!

SUBMISSION DUE COUNTDOWN TIMER: Full Screen Countdown to Nov 21, 2011 in Springfield

So here we go!
Introducing the first (as far as I know) "Who can come up with the sickest beamshot(s)" competition!!

Here's how it will work:

1. YOU make a picture of the SICKEST beamshot (or beamshots) that you can (I AM LIMITING SUBMISSION TO ONE PICTURE PER PERSON).
2. YOU email said picture to: beamshotcompetition@revoctechnologies.com ALONG WITH YOUR LPF USERNAME
DO NOT POST YOUR PICTURE IN THIS THREAD!!!
3. Depending on how many submissions I get, I will narrow it down to probably ~25 of what I think are the SICKEST pictures
4. I will post said 25 SICK beamshot pictures either to here or my website and YOU, the community, will vote on your favorites (pictures will be presented anonymously)
5. The TOP 10 (these numbers may change depending on how many submissions I get) will then be determined and re-voted upon in order to determine the TOP 5
6. The top 5 will then go into the judging round (this is VERY subject to change [may even be another community vote]):

a. 3 of the top 5 will receive prizes (unless we get more prizes, or more submissions)
b. If you want to be a judge, you must (STRICTLY):
1. Have over 400 posts AND over 7 rep
2. Either offer up a prize of your own or donate some money for prizes (PM me) -- these things don't grow on trees (as much as we may wish...)!
3. Not be in the top 5​
c. Judges will determine the winners
d. You will go down in history (if you win)​




Prizes-wise (as of now): (unless [as is preferable] we get more interest) prizes will be something like:
1. Super overspec green pen, ~50mW blu-ray pen, and ~15mW Viper-host green pen w/ case.
2. C6 host/heatsink and Mohgasm driver (courtesy of Mohrenberg -- be sure to thank him!)
3. Kinda overspec green pen & blu-ray pen
Where 1st place picks from the list first, 2nd place picks second, etc.
This will of course change as (if) I receive more diverse prizes.




Since, as far as I know, this has never been done before, any suggestions would be welcome! Also, from research done, it seems as though unlike raffles these types of things are in fact legal by not requiring payment to enter (therefore not gambling).




Overall Rules:
1. One submission per person (your submission cannot be a re-used photo. It must be something nobody has seen before!!)
2. If you win, you agree to not hold myself or any of my affiliates responsible for damage caused by the prizes.
3. If you don't win, you agree to not hold myself or any of my affiliates responsible for emotional distress caused by not winning this competition
4. Competition entries will be accepted starting today, Nov 2 and will end Friday, Nov 20th at MIDNIGHT EST.
5. Submissions will remain anonymous until winners are declared and PLEASE TRY TO KEEP THEM AS ANONYMOUS AS POSSIBLE TO AVOID BIAS.


Non-USA entries are ACCEPTED, although your huge shipping costs may cut into your prizes if you win....

Now, let's see some sick beamshots!! :beer:





ENTRIES CLOSED


Like these competitions? Wanna see cooler prizes? DONATE!
NOTE: DONATIONS ARE AND WILL REMAIN ANONYMOUS AND ARE NOT REQUIRED AND WILL NOT AFFECT ENTRIES/JUDGING IN ANY WAY

Hmm sick beam shots.
So there can be more than one laser in the beam shot right?
just putting a number out there like 27 445nm 1W lasers all in one pic doing something cool would work?

Yep! The only limit is one picture per person.

This is mostly my attempt at inspiring creativity and awesomeness all in one ;)

Think about it -- a really creative picture with a 50mW green could be way more awesome than 27 1W 445s pointing at a wall.

I think you should also limit it to new photos only.

No no no those are just restrictions for being a judge! You can enter no matter how little post/rep you have! (You can't use old pictures though!)

I'm going to allow it just because I didn't put anything about that in the rules. Maybe in the future I'll have an au natural competition if this one goes well ;)

Has to be a real beamshot though.. not computer drawn.

^ this
Funny, I haven't even made a submission, and already you're a critic?

Not sure if you noticed that variation word in there...:whistle:

If I were to do something, it would involve some optics/mirrors for sure. The avatar was a spur of the moment thing taken with my blackberry.

On another note... first day back on the forum and already drama trolling?:tsk:
