View Full Version : Most Outstanding Project

09-13-2008, 11:35 AM
This poll will determine the winner of the "Most Outstanding" tutorial contest category. Vote for up to three submissions that you think most exemplify an outstanding engraving project. Although submissions should still include work-in-progress photos and description, the overriding factor of this category should be the quality and execution of the finished product.

This poll will remain open until Friday, September 19th. Each registered forum user may vote once (for up to three submissions) and all votes will remain anonymous. The author of the thread with the most votes will receive $700 towards a new Classic Airgraver, Classic Palmcontrol, or Palmcontrol upgrade!

I don't like to be a critic, but what if someone did not finish their project, but is still included in the poll? Is that fair to everyone that did finish their tutorials?

Hi Flatland,

The projects in the poll most certainly have differing ranges of quality and completeness. The idea of the Most Outstanding category is to determine which have been brought to the highest levels of polish and professionalism-- if a project's not complete, then don't vote for it :)

If there are serious questions as to whether the winning project is complete, the admins can make the final call to disqualify.

Hope that helps,

I just stated my question as the rule posted at the beginning in reference to the most outstanding category stated, and I quote this excerpt, "and fully completed by the end date. " Just wondered, I guess this, as is most things in life, subject to changes after all is said and done. That's one of life unfortunate rules it seems, and must apply here also.

Really, I was a little surprised at the poll to determine a winner, given the quality of the moderators here on this forum. I think they could make the best judgement as to winner for each category.
