Edit: I have added a few more questions in the FAQ section.
Okay, so first piece of business: get the points update.
1.) PA gets a point for his team for the question on what thing had a grand opening last week at Sycamore Jr. High...the Spirit Store. +1 for Ice
2.) NWish redeemed himself with the question in Blog 60. +1 for Fire (they do not get the original set 2 points because it took a second "sort of" try)
3. NWish got the "PM me question" right first; PA got it second (that's all the entries I received). +5 for Fire; +2 for Ice
As you may have noticed, IceClan is dragging along quite a bit. So here is a new contest for IceClan to redeem themselves. Nevertheless, both Clans still get to participate, or else it wouldn't be fair for FireClan.
So this is how the contest will work: I will collect all entries at 12:00 A.M. Eastern Time on Monday, February 1, 2010. You are to create a banner that somehow represents this website, Wenganator's Site, by incorporating the words "Wenganator's Site" at the very least. Basically, you must make a banner out of any picture (I really don't care as long as it's appropriate) and include the words "Wenganator's Site". READ THE FAQs FOR MORE IMPORTANT DETAILS - MORE THAN 75% OF THE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ARE IN THE FAQs!!!!! I will judge the banners based on this criteria:
1.) The banner is creative and attractive.
*2.) It includes the words "Wenganator's Site".
3.) The banner contains a catchy slogan about/relating to Wenganator's Site.
4.) It is reasonably sized; it can easily fit in a signature.
*5.) It is turned in on time.
(*ed requirements are REQUIRED or else you'll be automatically disqualified)
So, if I'm not good with MSP (Microsoft Paint), then how do I create a cool-looking banner? Well, there are many websites that can help you with this. For example, a very good picture/banner converter site that you can make an account for free is http://www.picnik.com.
When is this due, and how can I get it to you? Your banner design is due at EXACTLY 12:00 A.M. Easter Time on Monday, February 1, 2010. There are two ways to post your banners: You can PM me the link to it (you're going to have to upload it on a website, like http://www.imageshack.us, so that there is a way we can incorporate it into coding), or post the link as a comment here (I prefer you do the second way).
Will there be a prize of sorts for the contest winner(s)? Or is it just points for your Clan? Good question. You see, I haven't got everything sorted out yet but there will be another prize besides just points for your Clan for FIRST AND SECOND PLACE. This will probably be something to do with the RP, but trust me, the prize is VERY GOOD.
As for points, this is how they're going to be distributed:
20 points for first place
10 points for second place
4 points for any other participant
This is a very good way to earn points FAST.
How many entries can I enter? You may enter up to 3 entries. But only your best scoring banner will be counted, unless there are so few entries that to do this would make the contest very dull.
Can I be classified as Anonymous if I don't want people to know I made a certain banner? Certainly. In this case, just PM me the link of the banner, tell me you want to be featured as Anonymous, and I'll do it!
Can I submit a banner that was made by me and another person; in other words, can I form a team with someone else for this contest? Sure, but if you win, you will have to split the prize in half with your partner, just to give you a heads up.
Will there be any ties? No, I will (try) to pick a definite winner...if all comes down to all, then there will be a tie in second or lower place, not for first for sure.
Is there an example you could show me? Yes, definitely. I will post an example right at the bottom of the contest section of the blog, and any other person's banner that they have submitted, so you can get the feel of what you need to do.
Hope this FAQ was somewhat helpful. If you need more help, feel free to just add a comment here, or PM me.
Example: Okay, so I know this is kinda unrelated to Wenganator's Site, but I threw it together in a matter of minutes...so don't exactly follow my idea; you won't win, trust me.

Now, on to the rest of my Blog.
You know, I've noticed that lately I've been making REALLY long blogs. To the point that it would just be better if I did a bunch of short ones. Oh well.
Anyways, to tell you about some of the things that have happened in my life lately (if you're a person like NWish, just skip this list and continue reading):
- Before Thursday I've never been on a ski lift, so my ski instructor at Perfect North decides for me to go down the green lift twice, and then takes me (and Peter Tosh) up the orange lift.
**** it was scary. Went down it TWICE (both directions). Somehow I survived. (But then again, I was like swerving clear of ever jump there was)
- Got a 100 on my math semester exam (YAY)
- Made the MATHCOUNTS team (sorry Nimit for all those tie-breakers...)
- Learned how to waste 10 minutes typing up this blog while I'm thinking of what to type.
- Hope that Webs doesn't delete this.
Haha, a conversation I had with Ynis the other day:
Ynis: So, what does that '<3' mean in her username anyways?
Wenganator: Huh, you don't know? It's just a heart sign sideways.
Ynis: *dawn of understanding* OHHHHHH...I always thought it meant "Shimmer less than 3"
Wenganator: Lol, no, it's just a heart.
Ynis: You know what it should really mean? Shimmer has an IQ LESS THAN 3!!!
And then I was cracking up, unable to control myself, and...yeah. I won't bore you with any more of my
So...I've updated all the mod stuff...except for one thing
@Shade: Could you just leave a comment here telling me if you want the mod status to be on your ShadeStar account or the Wangster Gangster account?
Okay, I'm going to go finish up some hw now. I'll edit this Blog if I realize I forgot to put something up.
(Changed my screen name, btw, in case you were wondering...I might change it again soon)
