Cool But Only Paypal Account Holders Can Participate I Think
Hi Imaginext! Anyone can enter. The point about the main PayPal prize is simply, if you are the grand prize winner, the main prize is sponsored by PayPal so the prize can only be given to someone with a PayPal account in good standing. i.e. The prize cannot be transferred or converted in any way (e.g. converted to Envato Market credit). If someone wins and they don’t have a PayPal account, then they just win the other items that are part of the grand prize package. So again, anyone can enter. Hope that helps!
it seems like some image dimensions in your blog post are not correct. I’m not sure about other entries, but MCGRAPHICS’s entry links are not linking to the image dimensions it says they are.Congrats to all those that entered!
Hello OriginalEXE, links now fixed, thanks for letting us know!http://marketblog.envato.com/community/wallpaper-contest-1-winner-announced/
This thread is full of outstanding photos. Would be great if all authors can use them in items previews.
That’s not a bad idea, dorde! We’ll have to look at this at some point in the future however. Right now, it’s not permissible. Amongst other things, we’d need to collect authorization from each participant in order to verify they agree to their work being used in this way. Again, for clarification, and to keep this contest super straight forward for Sam to run, wallpaper entries cannot be used at this time for item previews.
Glad to revisit at a future point though as it’s a lovely idea! Thanks so much for understanding!
Hey Scott, I didn’t get the badge, and I was a superstar in January this year: http://marketblog.envato.com/community/community-superstars-january-2015/. Can you please look into this? Thanks!
Good one! Thanks so much for catching! Badge re-awarded to you and your fellow January Superstars, enjoy!
Hello Scott, i remember we had this badge earned sometime back. But we didn’t get it with your announcement. Please ensure we earn it back. theem’on
Hi theemon! Have a check to see if this was definitely the Community Superstar badge (as opposed to the old silver superstar badge – now known as the “Amazing Forum Superstar” badge) as I don’t see your name in our records of Superstar winners unfortunately.
The “Amazing Forum Superstar” badge (the old silver star badge) is given out by Travis and other staff members when they see great community participation in the forums, and it just lasts for 30 days. Please correct me if I am wrong however with a link to a forum thread or blog post if it’s the Community Superstar badge. Thanks so much!
Ha, I just found it.
It was a silver superstar badge sent out by Travis (KingDog) to everyone who have taken part in the ‘Show Us Your Musical Instrument – Competition’.
Ah, good work finding the thread! The silver superstar badge however is what is now called the “Amazing Forum Superstar” badge, which remains temporary, and is different to the Community Superstar badge.
At least we got to the bottom of it, thanks again for finding the link!
Scotty, I’m going mad (or just old?) After coming back of work I spent about one hour to find some announcement of it – without success. I tried to check mails and threads.
All I can remember is that you (personal or envato) sent out a CS badge for a few authors who participated on what? Yeah, what was it? Any forum action I can’t remember as well.
I’ll go on searching for something which could help to remember.
Maybe an author with a memory of an elephant will remember and can help me!? Can you maybe?So, see you later. I’m persistent!
It may have been the Forum Superstar badge, perhaps you’re getting mixed-up with that? I don’t have any record of anyone giving you the Community Superstar badge unfortunately (they have always been publicly announced either in the forums or our blog since they began in 2010) but if it shows up let me know!
