You can put my TBH flag in your flags dispatch if you want.

Also, if you want your eyes to bleed, you should look at that. It's bad.

Or this:

You can put this in your flags dispatch too if you want.

A dispatch has been assembled of all entries! Apologies for the delay. Entries without a name have been given one unilaterally by me. Judging will now commence. Please view both the The Black Hawks and Ebola Quarantine Zone regions for both halves of the public poll!!!

Since prohibiting cheating in NS polls without making them teeny tiny and hard to participate in is nigh-on-impossible, cheating is instead encouraged. Out-cheat your peers. Cheat to fix the numbers if you want. Follow your dreams.

Hawks flying with a UFO filled with aliens they helped escape, September 20th 2019


Prepared with tin foil hats and hours of practice of Naruto running, the Black Hawks Naruto ran past the Area 51 Guards and raided The Area 51. It was a tough journey, filled with narrowly escaping the Area 51 guards at times, but The Black Hawks finally met some aliens and helped them escape. Before flying back to their home planet, the aliens shared the top sekrit knowledge of what the fox actually says.

Here is the shit flag I threw together that I am using as the bar for "Unironically terrible"


Flag Contest Results!


Goooooooood evening! Our flag contest was loads of fun, and saw 17 entries, if I counted right. I at least had loads of fun just seeing what people came up with. All that said, I'm sure you all still want to know who won. The contest's judges have finished their voting, and because the voting was very lackadaisical, I have finished figuring out more or less who to call "winners" based on those votes. I will include full judge breakdowns below, but without further ado, here goes the top slots.


Kyrusia's "TBH_Flag_True_Complete_Honest_100_Percent_Perfect_Yes_Burb.png"

Image

"Oh my fucking god my eyes" - Atagait

"It's bad enough at first glance because of the color combinations as well as the shades of those colors but when I actually tried to read the background I got the faintest of headaches." - CoS

"It hurts my face. Not just my eyes. My whole face." - Souls


Khronion's "He sees you" and Lord Visoraxus' "Alert"


Valkyrie's "THE E D G E L O R D of my youth is back bb!"

Image

"The text aside, the aesthetic is consistent throughout the flag. It really looks like some graffiti you'd find in a tunnel somewhere." - Atagait

Despite the intentional attempt to do bad it does look kinda cool with the paint dripping outside the lines like a graffiti artist who, half way through his work said "Why do I bother!? What good is it when art is dead to me now! All that's left for me are upvotes on Imgur!" The only insult (compliment? I'm not sure which this is supposed to be, lol) I can offer is that the way the paint brush used for the wings blends with the white background is a heinous assault on the visual senses." - CoS

"Love the spraypaint aesthetic, fits for tagging. Very traditional TBH flag tbh." - Souls


Jay's "Cosmo" and Valkyrie's "Therapy"


Well, the clear winner of "best at cheating" and thus the official winner of this award is...

Roavin's "Best entry ever."

Image

...With a whopping 579 votes. Congratulations on finding a way to win something while being so bland that no judge bothered to mention it :P


Attempting to look at legitimate votes, McMannia, Kyrusia, and Eumaeus appear to have done well! Meanwhile, Eumaeus and Devi made valiant efforts to stack the vote as well, but ultimately fell short.


So there you go! These three flags will each be used on at least one tag raid. I do think that Hawks look forwards to weaponizing Kyrusia's eye cancer, actually "tagging" with Valkyrie's paint, and ruining TGW's brand by tagging with their imagery without fear of impersonation charges. Thank you to all entrants for your participation! The dispatch will remain up for all time, so feel free to go find and fly one of the entries any time.




What follows are each judge's complete commentary and votes

Objectively not terrible from Best to Worst
"Edgelord of my Youth is back bb" - The text aside, the aesthetic is consistent throughout the flag. It really looks like some graffiti you'd find in a tunnel somewhere.

"Therapy"
Minimalist aesthetic is uniform through the entire flag, text aside.

"Cosmo"
Good horse art, pretty fuckin' gay and that's okay

Objectively shit from worst to best
"Epic"
I hate it
"Alert"
My eyes are bleeding
"He sees you"
Internet explorer, a foam sword, and a horrifying laser-eyed hawk

So bad it's good, or good in a bad way
"TBH_Flag_True_Complete_Honest_100_Percent_Perfect_Yes_Burb.png"
Oh my fucking god my eyes
"Duo"
Dead meme, but the presentation isn't bad.

Honorable mentions because they tryharded to make me hate it
McMannia's entries


Worst Worst
------------------------
1.) Kyrusia's devastating pupil pounding. It's bad enough at first glance because of the color combinations as well as the shades of those colors but when I actually tried to read the background I got the faintest of headaches.

2.) Visoraxus' "Alert" flag. Those shades of red and pink, in such enormous quantities should never ever be together. I regret looking at it in detail.
------------------------
Best Worst

1.) Serboro's edgelord eye pain. Despite the intentional attempt to do bad it does look kinda cool with the paint dripping outside the lines like a graffiti artist who, half way through his work said "Why do I bother!? What good is it when art is dead to me now! All that's left for me are upvotes on Imgur!" The only insult (compliment? I'm not sure which this is supposed to be, lol) I can offer is that the way the paint brush used for the wings blends with the white background is a heinous assault on the visual senses.

2.) Serboro's "Therapy". I actually love the art style. Were this a standard flag contest it would be a strong candidate for 1st place. It could stand to be worse.

Honorable Mentions:

McMannia's "I can make it worse". The sheer number of dabbing in a flag of all things is disturbing both to my eyes and my brain. The fact that the submission itself acknowledges how bad it is is worthy of mention...or shame. Take your pick.

Khronion's "He sees you." The searing gaze of this flag makes me imagine my eyes actually burning out.


My worst worst is:

Kyru's. it hurts my face. Not just my eyes. My whole face.

Honorable mentions: Mcmannia's original was worse than his second attempt. Khron's ....khron's. Alert hurts my eyes, but only my eyes.

My best worsts is:

Kyrie's edgelord. Love the spraypaint aesthetic, fits for tagging. Very traditional TBH flag tbh.

Honorable mentions: Cosmo (cute, charming), tiny (adorable, like a game sprite), therapy (wonderful art, not very flaggy), Epic (I actually find it adorably bad), Duo (it works, it really works)

Misc. Additional mention: AWT's miniature figure flag. It's a chicken with a gun. Actually would be decent as someone's flag, if not award winning. Neither terrible or adorable.

Also, shoutout to Bowin and Kyrie for the original meme!
