Make a poster!
The unofficial contest

Backstory:

Long story short, because of the decreased morale in the Empire, it is now in the need of blah blah blah, nag nag nag, and they asked us to provide them with those fake (de)motivational posters.

The rules:

1) To enter this contest, you have to create a motivational poster, and submit it here.
2) The poster has to be Empire related and mock one or another aspect of it. For example naming system, guards, the way the Library works, etc.
3) The poster has to conform to one of two forms, provided below.
4) DROD licensing applies to the any graphics used - you may use screenshots only from the Architects' Edition. The room images are an exception - read submission forms below.
5) One person may not submit more than 3 posters.
6) You may edit the submissions to your heart's contents, but not after the deadline.

Submission form 1:

A standart poster. Use the generator here to create those. Please use the default border, colors and fonts - you are creating the posters for the Empire, not for illiterate Internet masses. Or, you can use another generator here. Also, wrap images around secret tags in your submission posts - it will help to conserve bandwidth keep things tidy. Here are some examples:

Submission form 2:

An alternative form - the poster is embedded in a post. Essentially it contains a centered image, followed by a title and subtitle. The advantage of this form is that you can use room images and not break any licenses (i.e. it is legal). The template for these forms are as follows:

[secret]
[center]
[img]Image URL[/img]
[size=+2]TITLE[/size]
Subtitle
[/center]
[/secret]

Here is an example:

Deadline:

The contest will last for one week, and it will be followed by a one-week poll. End time is Local Time:10-01-2008 at 04:00 PM, which had already passed.

Voting:

After the deadline has passed, I will notify everyone in this thread and start a poll, where every forum member may vote. The poll will determine the winners, who will receive the prizes.

Prizes:

1st place winner gets 10 (4+6) rank points.
2nd place winner gets 5 (3+2) rank points.
3rd place winner gets 2 rank points.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask them.
Too much formal writing in English lessons. Just ask any questions if you have them.

Just a few things to point out. Firstly, things in secret tag's are still loaded with the page, thus they don't save bandwidth. However, they do make the page A LOT easier to navigate, and cleaner too.

Second, here's a copy pasta version of the 2nd form.
[secret]
[center]
[img]Image URL[/img]
[size=+2]TITLE[/size]
Subtitle
[/center]
[/secret]

So you use [lb]... I used [leftbracket]/[rightbracket], and the forum would interpret them as regular brackets. I will remember this.

Contest description fixed.

I can sponsor more winning points. 10 ranks to first place, 5 to second, 2 to third. If you want, of course.

Sure, go for it. Still, I have 30 mod points I need to burn, so I will add you on top of my prizes. Is that okay?

I used this generator in stead, because I like it better. (Feel free to disqualify me, I guess.)

Trick's one is mocking DROD RPG, right?
Anyway, I don't think that you should be discqualified. I like the generator! :D

Why would I disqualify you? A poster is a poster.

P.S. Added you generator to contest description.

I know the contest is over, but this was too cringe-worthy a thought not to knock it up and inflict it on others: :tomato
