Every now and then I browse these forums, and I see the same old sig contests, so I decided I would try to add a little variety. The winner in this contest will not necessarily be the person who creates the best looking sig, but the person who creates the sig that actually does something awesome.
You've all probably seen shoutboxes made by PopeOfDope, Me, youresam and a few others. You've also probably seen youresam's "Capture the Sig" and Oyez's MSN status sig. This is the kind of thing I'm talking about. The goal of this competition is to create a sig that actually does something, and is dynamic in some way.
- You may enter as many sigs as you wish.
- The sig must be made for this competition, if you submit something that is to be proved as your old work that entry will be disqualified.
- You must be willing to release the source, this not only proves that it's your work, but otheres may also learn from it. It'll also be fun to see how other people code.
- Your entry must be in by 12:00 midnight on Wednesday the 18th of April (GMT)
How to enter
To enter use this template:
[B*]Name:[/B*] Give your creation a name.
[B*]Description:[/B*] Write a brief description

[PHP*]Source goes here[/PHP*]
Note: If you wish you may post a link to a file containing the source, this can easily be done by renaming a .php file to .phps
I will judge the entries once the deadline has passed, the winner will have the choice of 2 prizes, as I know that about half this forum love points and about half hate them. You can choose between:
20 Million Points
A subdomain on gutya [dot] net, this includes possibility to attach your domain, 20 email addresses, a MySQL DB, PHP 5, the ability to have a large number of ready to use scripts installed (CMS, Forums, Blogs, etc.) and the usual hosting features. Space and bandwidth will not be an issue unless you plan to use a ridiculous amount.
