Design Your World!

OH HEY THERE EVERYBODY

So I’ve had this idea for a while, and I thought it was cool, so here goes: I’m kind of weird like this, and I always feel the need to re-do my WORLD, like, every few months. I change the theme, make a new banner, sometimes I change the name, all that good stuff :D And I always think about how much fun it is to do that, and I thought it would be a good idea for a contest! So what is the point of this contest? It’s really simple, actually. I want you to customize your personal WORLD. Sounds simple, right? Well, it’s a little more complex than that. I don’t mean just randomly finding images floating about the internet and pasting them together and using a pre-made theme or something like that. I mean REALLY customize it: make a banner, a background, make all the text colors and link colors match, that sort of thing. If that’s confusing, here are some examples-

Noir’s WORLDs Em Outras Palavras and Noir’s Wonderments are both so PERFECT examples of what I’m looking for. All the text matches, the background fits everything, and the banner ties everything together.

And here’s my WORLD, {heartstop}, because I think it’s puurddyy. For now anyway :D

So why is this a wallpaper challenge? Well, because customizing a WORLD takes graphic design skill, right? And also, you’ll submit your world as a wallpaper. I know, it doesn’t make sense, BUT LET ME EXPLAIN

Since the WORLD banner is basically the focal point of it all, and you’ll most likely be spending most of your time on it, all you have to do is reformat your banner into the most basic 1024x768 wallpaper resolution and submit that as an entry, but link to your WORLD in the captions. Note that I won’t be judging you on your wallpaper, but on the quality of the WORLD itself :D

Still confused? Here’s an example of how I would submit it if I were entering my WORLD.

So to sum it all up
1. The challenge is to customize your WORLD, not to make the best wallpaper. I just made mine pretty ‘cause I wanted to. I will not be judging the quality of the wallpaper. I just wanted to make this an official challenge and you have to submit SOMETHING tangible for it to be so.

2. Think about your banner as one giant eCard, and then taking that eCard and making it a wallpaper

3. Remember to link your WORLD in the captions, and also remember to credit any images you used!

4. IMPORTANT NOTE: Remember, this is not just about finding an image on the internet and pasting it into your WORLD. You have to EDIT it or do SOMETHING to it. Just like a giant eCard/mini wallpaper, remember that. If you want, you can just take an old wall/eCard that you like and re-do your WORLD around that.

5. Also, if you think your WORLD already fits the standard I set, then you can just enter it as it is! You just have to reformat the banner into a wallpaper :D

6. If you don’t want to mess with your personal WORLD, just make another one! If you’ve already made all the WORLDs you can make, just redo one that’s sitting around and collecting dust :D

So there you have it. If you have any other questions or are still confused by the whole idea, just comment and I’ll try to explain it :D It really is fun to customize your WORLD and it only takes a few hours, so I hope you guys enter!
