Wallpaper of the Week (21st-27th April) - The vote

Postby Jernau » Mon Apr 28, 2008 12:34 pm

Welcome to the Mint Art-Team's 'Wallpaper of the Week' vote! :D

To be eligible for entry into 'Wallpaper of the Week', wallpapers must adhere to the Mint Art-Team submission guidelines:
  1. Widescreen & Normal versions (minimum resolutions: 2560x1600 & 1600x1200)
  2. Gnome & KDE versions
After the huge number of entries in lasts weeks competition it was suspected that we would require a 'one wallpaper per artist' policy to fit the vote into one poll. However, as this week has been much quieter on the wallpaper front, all of the eligible wallpapers have been included.

This week's entries:
Dark Metal Mint - by Zwopper:

Mint Buntuleaves - by cathbard:

My fault - I'm really sorry Zwopper. :oops:

I was in a hurry when I was making the poll on Monday and as I was rushing through the posted wallpapers I somehow got it into my head that both 'Mint Blackboard' and 'Bold Mint' weren't eligible because they didn't have links to both widescreen and a normal aspect ratio versions. But now that I've downloaded both I realize that it's possible to crop them to make the 'missing' version. Completely my mistake and I hope that you'll forgive me. :oops:

Adding them now wouldn't really be fair to them, so maybe it's best if I sneak them into next weeks vote? ;)

When all the relavance in an image is in the center, I see no need for a regular 4:3 version, since it get's correctly cropped anyway, right?
About next week, you're master of the polls, :wink: so I guess it's your call, but it's OK by me... :!:
...but then again I can cut them down to 1600x1200 if you want, you've set the rules here, so tell me how you want it! :) 8)

Yes, as long as the desktop environment has 'crop' or 'center' as an option (which I'm pretty sure all the main ones do), and as long as the user hasn't accidentally selected 'stretch'... ;)

I prefer to include both aspect ratios - I suppose it's because I don't pay for deviantART's bandwidth and I figure that people can always delete the one they don't need. Though I should probably remember that not everybody has access to the same internet connections that we do in Sweden... here's a speed test I just performed on my ISP: :shock:

I think I'll just include them as they are, unless McLovin or anybody else has any objections.

15Mb/s is pretty amazing for a forest... in many countries they'd love to have that speed in their cities! :)

It seems that the poll is closed; most likely because the thread is older than some forum users are.
Closing it up now. Please don't revive such old topics, they deserve their eternal rest. :wink:

If your issue is solved, kindly indicate that by editing the first post in the topic, and adding [SOLVED] to the title. Thanks!
