Topic Student Art Contest
I can't think of a more appropriate prize than this for a content on the WoW forums considering what goes up on the WoW forums in the first place.
We shall be honored to win your random bags of crap.
Sorya - cheat! Screenshot your toon, go into some photo editor and remove all the backgrond then copy what's left into your custom art. If you really want to have fun, you could apply one of those weird photo effects to your toon first.
I've already submitted my pic and it's really cute!
Im more concerned about how we will do the voting. I don't want to see a case of "let's all vote of ourselves".
Let the participants judge. They get one vote and can vote for anyone but themselves.
I would have replied sooner, but I wasn't able to log in to the forums for some reason. After I posted the contest yesterday, I wrote this up for the voting thread. Why don't you guys look it over and see if you think it sounds fair or if anything really needs to be changed.
I think that I will also copy/paste links to the entries and include their post numbers because we are all experts at derailing and it will make it easier for voters not having to sort through the entire contest thread to pick out the entries. If we keep doing contests after this one, I'll either edit them into the OP or reserve a post under the OP and post the entries there as they come up.

I like that people can vote for themselves.
I can guarantee you that I will retract my vote if the person I voted for votes for themselves.
I'm totally going to do a thing, but I won't have time until Sunday morning, probs.

I can buy more of the rep pets listed though some are kinda pricy and I'm not sure I want to put out that much gold. I can also make most of the crafted pets in the game except for the two new JC pets.
With pets now account bound, I can get on a toon of either faction to cage and trade assuming there are no faction restictions for learning the pet.
I need to save up tokens so I can buy the rolling pin and frying pan as well. I'm only disappointed that I've had my Chef's Hat so long it's no longer pristine white to match the apron. I don't think I can bleach it back.
But my little Nomi is all grown up now! He's a master chef in his own right and he gave me the apron as a thank you gift. He's such a sweetheart, he even keeps cooking up meals for me every day.
(For those of you confused, you can buy a Cooking School Beel once you become a Master of the Ways. You summon a cooking student, Nomi, and help him with his lessons. After 30 days, he graduates and from there on has a simple accept/complete daily that awards a cooking token and random Pandaren delicacy that is usually either 5 of a Banquet or 5 of one of the +300 buff foods. Basically, if you're into cooking you want to go for this).
Just name some obscure bands every now and then and everyone will just assume you're a hipster and you look that way on purpose.
