    It just occured to me...
    If all the people try to send in cards at the same time, my inbox may become overfilled.
    When you send in your entry, please PM me. That way, if it does not end up in my inbox, I knew that you tried to send it.

    Should I expect only one card entry for this contest?

    T_R_Y,
    Please stop flaming the boards.
    All of us at school know your sexual orientation, but you don't have to flaunt that around the boards.

    Seriously, what is your problem?

    Let me pose a question:
    If I lengthened this contest to Sunday at 12:00AM, would anybody else send in an entry?

    I was going to... in fact, I made a card... but I re-read the rules for this contest, and realized that my image was not from ESB, and for the life of me, I couldn't think of any good ESB ideas. So I bow out, but I will be waiting for the next Dream Card contest.

    We are thinking of lengthening the time and opening the contest up to all movies.

    We agreed that a link to some good ESB images could have been provided. But in retrospect......

    Well, Capt Piett and I will talk it over and I'll leave the final decision up to him, but we will probably lengthen it and open it to all movies or ideas.

    Don't forget my offer to do the fonts for all entries. It can make such a difference.

    How about this:
    I will tack on one week (until Thursday of next week) and open it to characters featured in The Empire Strikes Back.
    So, now you don't have to worry if your image didn't come from the theatrical release of the movie, as long as the character was in TESB.

    Well, my origonal hosting site decided (between the start of the contest and now) that it would not allow me to remote-link pictures.
    Sooo....
    I am going to start a Yahoo! group and do remote-linking from there. If anybody wants to join this very sort-term Yahoo! group, just PM me.

    Ok, here is the first entry receved.
    Maybe this will encourage some of you to work harder to finish your cards.
    Remember, the contest ends on Thursday

    Ok, the Yahoo! image is not loading either. So, here is the link to the Yahoo! Group.
    All people joining the group require my approval, so just join and send me a PM saying you tried to join.

    And am I correct to assume you acquired them legally? Where'd you find the cash for the fonts?

    PS, which fonts go to which parts of the card?

    PPS, would you also happen to know the fonts used for the old CCG cards as well?

    I'll have to look up the names as they fit the different parts of the cards.

    I got them legally from an official source but I did not have to pay for them myself.
