Yes the wallpaper will be displayed and available for download in our "wallpaper" section of the site.

Please read the rules very carefully. I know that a lot of people are asking the questions that are answered in the "rules" section.

If something is not written there, and you would like to know it, post it here.

Good Luck Folks.

I read em but wasn't sure by the word "wallpaper" if it was desktop or some web page thingy. Thanks for clearin it up. Now to get to work. One more question, should it have "xboxaddict.com" somewhere in it?

Not at all. It should have a general "Xbox theme", but it is not necesary to plug the site in your design. However, those who put "VAN is Cool" somewhere on there work, stand a much better chance of winning. :D

I hope we get a ton of entries for this one. The grand prize is worth over 300 bucks, people and includes 6, count 'em SIX games! Even if your graphics skills are a little rusty, it won't hurt to give it a try. :)

I hope you're joking, Matt. It needs to be an Xbox themed wallpaper. I was just being a smart @ss. :)

See these are the types of contest that I'll never win. I know nothing about Desiging Websites or Wallpapers. That's why I'm a writer...and that's what I'm good at.

If we would have an Essay contest hands down I will dominate it and win it all. But unfortunatly I'm unable to enter contest :(.

You must E-mail what you are entering to wallpaper@xboxaddict.com

Rancey
01-18-2002, 05:58 PM
That should be ok, I will have to ask Stephen but it should be fine...although I would probbably think an attachment is safer in case you make a typo or something.

I'm going to do a good one later on..hopefully I can make it on a game itself instead of the system...would it be 'marked' differently? Like..if I have just one game instead of all the XBOX games and the system?

Man I cant wait for the results of this contest! I think about it all the time! lol

also can any one of u guys from the staff tell us if theres been alot of entries? (like tk421 said)

also I think it would be cool if u had like the standing everyday.

like which are considered the top 3 and when ever a better 1 comes it takes 1 of the other ones place.

then we can know if we should keep making wallpapers.

My work! I sent it in a while ago, but decided to post it here to just for fun.

I decided to go with a basic design because I think that people don't like wallapers that are all cluttered. They want something clean and basic.
