And The Winner Is …..

Posted on October 23, 2008. Filed under: building, Contests | Tags: , |

So about 2 weeks ago we started a contest here at the Kanevian Blog – The idea was simple, leave a comment anywhere on the blog and/or do a few more things to get some entries into the contest.

For each entry I created a line in an excel spreadsheet with the username, email address, and IP adress of the contestant (to help keep out cheaters).  Each line had a number assigned to it and in total there were only 33 entries – not a huge number, but that makes it easier for everyone to have a chance at winning.  Some people even increased their chances of winning by hanging a Kanevian Blog banner at their club, leaving at least one comment, and re-blasting the contest for a total of 6 entries – 6 out of 33 really helped to increase your odds of winning.

To choose a winner, I used the Truly Random Number Generator to pick a number between 1 and 33.  The number that came up was matched to the numbers assigned in excel.  The winner is someone who used all avenues to enter the contest, resulting in 6 total entries (I told you that would help increase the odds of being a winner).

Now without further babbling (and lack of a drum roll)…. The Winner Is…….


Congratulations to FlowerChild and a big thank you to all that entered.

FlowerChild, I will be emailing you at the address you provided – you will have until Monday Oct. 27th 2008 to respond so that we can coordinate the transfer of your prizes.

To everyone else, if I do not receive a response by Monday then I will re-draw for a new winner again on Tuesday Oct. 28th – so keep checking the blog (and your email) just in case.

Thanks again to all who participated – I plan on having more contests in the future so I look forward to your suggestions for contest ideas!

Trick or Treat?

Posted on October 15, 2008. Filed under: design, UGC | Tags: , , |

Halloween is a great time of year.  We get to dress up and eat candy – no matter how old you are.  It’s also a great time of the year for the UGC designers on Kaneva because everyone is in the market for a good costume.  Sure, Kaneva put out some new costumes – but they can’t cover everything.  Not to mention, they also seem a little overpriced (and I’m not just talking about the matrix looking “avenger” costume).

This morning, in the spirit of Halloween, I decided to try on some of the UGC costumes.  Below are some of the best male costumes that I’ve found:

Spider Man, Spider Man – look at me, I’m dressed like Spider Man

This costume was designed by fudnut

  • The shirt can be found HERE
  • The pants can be found HERE

STOP! In the name of the blog

This police officer costume was designed by carrieq

  • The shirt can be found HERE
  • The pants can be found HERE

I’m such a bonehead

This skeleton costume was designed by UberNoobie

Holy Superman Batman!

The next two designs were done by Kaunaz

  • Get the superman shirt HERE
  • Get the superman pants HERE
  • Get the batman shirt HERE
  • Get the batman shirt HERE

If I didn’t pick your design, my apologies.  There are just so many to choose from so I could only do a simple search and pick the ones that caught my eye.  I’m hoping to do another post with women’s costumes, but I need models… any volunteers?

Also, in the spirit of the Kanevian Blog Halloween Contest and helping designers know what people want – I would like you to leave comments with what costumes you would like the designers to make.

NOTE: Comments on this post count for the Kanevian Blog Halloween Contest
