    Specifications


    UTAU: Utane Uta (Defoko)
    Type: Dark Skin
    Prize: Voting Tokens
    All entrants will receive 1 token plus an additional token for every staff vote received.
    Runtime: Till minimum 3 entries are received +1 week grace period for additional entrants who started something but were still pending.
    Entry: To enter simply reply to this thread with your submissions.

    You will be making art for the "Defoko Runtime" skin currently live on UtaForum as a demo. It is a child theme of the "Runtime" zombie gaming theme. It has already been recolored to a shade of Defoko purple and we expect both Defoko and purple to be the primary aspects of art submitted.

    Required Art

    • Header Image [Example]
      Height: 136-150px
      Width: 1250px minimum
      Put your browser in windowed mode and resize the browser's width. Runtime is a "responsive" theme and the header will resize with the window. As such it is recommended you keep the primary focus of your image to the center of its width.
    • Body Background Image [Example (Tapering)] [Example (Tiling)]
      Height: 150px minimum
      Width: 1350px minimum (150px if X-Y tiled)
      The center-most 1250px will be hidden by the forum active area. An effective background can take one of two approaches:
      A really wide image (2000px and up) that doesn't repeat and tapers into gradients into a solid color.
      A less wide image (1350px and up) that is made to tile and repeat along the vertical axis of the page.
    Optional Art
    • Navigation Background Image [Example]
      Height: 50px minimum
      Width: 250px minimum
      This is the image that acts as a background for the navigational elements of the Runtime. Currently its purple with a generic grunge filter to simulate bloodsplatter. If you feel this is not compatible with your header or body background feel free to make a replacement. Note: this image is meant to tile horizontally.
    • Sidebar Navigation Background [Example]
      Height: 50px minimum
      Width: 250px minimum
      This is the image that acts as a background for elements parts of Runtime. Currently its purple with a generic grunge filter to simulate bloodsplatter. If you feel this is not compatible with your header or body background feel free to make a replacement. Note: this image is meant to tile horizontally.

    Thank you for all your entries. With 3 we now have the minimum amount of entrants to begin voting. Before the staff can be called to a vote whoever a small grace period of 5 (five) days will be given so people with partially completed entries have a chance to complete them and submit their entries.

    This contest will close September 28, and I hope to inform the winner and hand out the various participation prizes soon after. Best of luck to all of you! Everything submitted so far looks great.

    Voting has already begun! I have created a thread in the staff section of the forums where we are discussing entries.

    Every staff member gets 2 votes, with each vote earning a token as a prize (on top of flat rate entry prizes) and the winner being the entry with the most votes. I will be announcing the winner next week and with the Default Defoko skin finalized we will be one step closer to removing that BETA™ from UtaForum 4.0's title.

    Herp. Sorry it took so long. The staff poll had closed a while ago but @Genosan and @lumelya actually tied with 4 votes each and @vi.Nzz coming really close with 3 votes herself. With a no clear winner I opened the submissions up for commentary from the community and got some feedback. After hearing everyone's thoughts we ended up using lumelya's header & background along with Genosan's secondary assets.

    As they tied and both had assets used as part of the default theme I will be awarding both of them the grand prize, credits on the footers, a number of tokens, and appropriate medals/achievements once I have graphics created for each. Thanks to everyone that participated, everyone who did so will get medals, achievements, tokens, etc. as well.

    I hope it's not too late. You both did a really great job. I was pretty sure that one of you would win, but I didn't expect a tie. So, congratulations, @lumelya, @Genosan!
