Edit: Voting is open for one week

Hello everyone. Welcome to the People’s Choice Award. I’ve made things hard this year by not formatting the main challenge with podiums (first>second>third) so you have no opportunity to disagree with the judges LOL This might have left some of you feeling confused, wondering what’s going on and how the judging process works. Apologies for that and for those that enjoy having that competitive spur to do better next time. The philosophy is to ‘challenge ones self’ not each other…. and let’s be honest, we had more prizes than participants Crown Thank you again to all our sponsors Beer

The People’s Choice however does not work to any set criteria. It is simply a popularity contest where votes are cast on the whim of the voter. Those with the competitive spirit will enjoy this more since the results are publicly available for everyone to see. The prize will be the last remaining Old-Lumens Bundle Shocked

I’ve made a separate thread full of gif’s to give a quick refresher of all the goodness the participants achieved this year. It’s in a separate thread because i thought it might be a little pic heavy for those with slow(er) internet.

So who’s your fav?

It is definitely an advantage that this year the judges did not specify winners because this way people need to think about which one they liked best instead of just choosing the first place for the people’s choice. Wink

Tough choice with so many great builds. You would need two or three votes. Innocent

Great work putting all of those gifs together, that helps a ton.

Also, picking just one is impossible! So many great entries, so hard to choose. And what an excellent prize!

I’m part of the “people”, so I voted Wink

Hope that more folks on the forum can take the time to look to the build threads or to the OL 2020 quick reference for a quick sight!

Again, congrats to all of you for your works Wink Thumbs Up Beer Party

Cool

Indeed. Didn’t even know such a thing existed – well the light I did. Someone will have some real treasure there for sure. An heirloom in fact.

Yeah, I knew about the light but I don’t think I’ve ever seen the knife before. That “O.L.” looks engraved, did Justin do that?

It was a tough choice for me as well. And finally I didn’t vote for the build that was my initial pick. There are many special builds in this competition…again. Smile

I did post this, and I apologise if the word idiot caused offence, I should not have posted it, was rude and thoughtless, I let my emotion for the compo spill over. I won’t do it again. My apologies particularly to zamachowiec, who I have pmed to covey this.

Wow, that prize looks absolutely priceless. I only have a small idea of old lumens who he is and what he did here. I’ve watched some of his YouTube videos. This contest is great, as is the prize and honor of winning. All great entries this year, thank you everyone who built ! Very inspiring!

I had to vote on this page. Clicking on the sidebar from the main page is what gave the error. Hmm.

Sometimes voting on the sidebar doesn't work, though it did work for me when I was trying to reproduce the error.

Several are truly OL inspired works of originality. In the end I only had one vote so I went with what inspires me personally.

Thanks to all the OL modders for your original works. You are the reasons BLF is such a fun and interesting forum.

Well, that’s what I’m thinking (obviously) the vote started at 3.45pm 7 days ago, it was edited at 9.11pm that night – that has passed too. We are well into day 8 now.
Needless to say, both myself and djozz are probably both on tenterhooks. Neither of us would probably want to not take the top spot it is a competition after all, the ‘big tamale’ and the reason most of us entered, for the glory of the win on the people’s vote.
Good luck to you all, particularly djozz Thumbs Up Beer (because at the moment it’s between us 2)
