Final Results of the Pokecharms Day Haiku Contest

    A couple of days later than planned, but with all of the latest news and site updates I figured it was appropriate. Regardless, the votes have been tallied, the winners decided, and prizes/extras prepared. The three top winners will be contacted via PM about their winnings - which, hopefully, all three of them can benefit from.

    The full list of participants and their poems can be found in the comment jump. Some of the voting was pretty close, but luckily the top three winners came out cleanly. Determined by our various members who voted, here are our Haiku masters:

    3rd Place - Silver Magpie
    [​IMG]

    2nd Place - Shocari
    [​IMG]

    And our champ... 1st Place - Secad
    [​IMG]

    There you have it. All of the participating poets showed lots of fun and creativity (as creative as you can get with a Haiku), but the lulz of Secad's won us over. My hat off to her and our other two winners.

    A big thank you goes to LoN for making the winners' banners. Also, as a special treat and thank you to everyone who entered, Doggy Ears has custom made Pokecharms-styled Stationery for anyone interested to print out for personal usage (cheers, DE~!). It is available in two sizes due to varying resolutions: Large version and Smaller version.

    And that about wraps everything up. Thanks again to everyone who participated and helped organize the contest, and here's to hoping next year's is even better =)

      I'm actually twitching right now and my heart is beating as the dopamine flows...XD

      Second Place, you say? Not bad. *pats Secad, Magpie, and himself on the back*

      Also, I give a round of applause to everyone else that entered this contest. The good news is: You beat the people whose poems didn't make it. But, for those who didn't get their poem selected, at least you tried.

      LoN, your banners never cease to amaze me. DE, that stationary is awesome as well.

      Umm...what place did I get? Just a little curious. I know mine sucked, so I wasn't expecting top 3, but I hope I got top 10. Anyway, I'll try agian next year. Good luck to the rest of you who participate next year.

      Grats to all the winners! Feel free to use those banners if you want, so if you want the code or can't get it then feel free to PM me.

      Also, really good job on the stationary there DE. Excellent stuff :)

      Actually, you tied for forth with about 3-4 other people (sorry I can't give you the exact numbers off the top of my head. I still have all of the votes pasted in a text document, just not my sheet that had them added together). So, don't bash yourself. Yours was very nice, and the ones who voted for it seemed to like it a lot :)

      Congratulations winners! I had a feeling that the first entry would be the winner. I actually voted for it myself. XD

      Good work, Secad. Your amusing haiku really deserved to win. and as for the other two winners, your haikus were pretty good too. In fact, I applaud everyone for entering.
