[ended] Omnimo 6 Release +$100 Contest

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 16, 2013, 12:30 PM
+ $100 Desktop Contest

Ladies and Gentlemen

After almost 18 months, we're finally proud to announce
The Grand release of Omnimo 6.0.
The biggest
Most important
And likely, the last major update
In the lifecycle of this project.



Life's circumstances have a tendency to change rapidly, and indeed, both of us (me and Xyrfo) had experienced rather significant changes which kept us from activelly working on this project. We started it as we were teenagers, but we've grown up and our new lives have begun. Perhaps Omnimo is a tribute to this transition; a hobbyist project that had become more serious with every release. We put our faith in the hope that our efforts were not in vain, and that the long wait had been worth it.

In our previous releases, we hesitated making the changelog out of fear that we won't cover everything that we've worked on. Incidentally, it's also the case for Omnimo 6.0 - we've improved it so much, I don't even know where to begin describing it. Instead, I'll leave it up to you to see and experience the new features.

In the next several weeks, I will try to produce a series of Informational bulletins that will showcase some of the features, both obvious and hidden - revolving around this new version.

TL;DR: It's here

Meanwhile, to celebrate the Grand Release,
we're officially announcing a contest:

CONTEST OVERVIEW

We like to see how people use Omnimo, and even more so the interesting ideas people come up with. There had been similar contests before which were quite fun. This time we have fantastic prizes!
RULES:


Omnimo must be used as the centerpiece
Do not use any age inappropriate material on your desktop
You may enter up to 3 screenshots
Screenshots must be preferably PNG and submitted to Customization>Screenshots>Windows
To enter, post a comment with the link or thumbnail to your Deviation in the comments section of this journal
Do not use multiple DeviantArt accounts to get more entries

JUDGING & PRIZES


Your desktops will be judged both by us and by the community. There won't be a specific standard of measurement for quality or originality, so pretty much everyone has a chance of winning.

The best desktops may be subject to a voting / poll, for 3 days after the contest is over. Winners will be announced after 2 weeks and 3 days from now, prizes to be paid in cash by PayPal transfer (can be negotiated if you don't have PayPal), we'll be spending a whooping $100 out of our lunch money for the prizes:



Let the games begin, may the odds be ever in your favor.
And remember: participation matters.

Developer's choice

Unfortunately due to the fact that we didn't receive many entries, we didn't really have much to chose from, this is why we're changing the rules a bit. Everyone who participated gets some points! I think that's fair for everyone, a small reward for your work :)
