Thank you very much for that wonderful animated GIF! It's very, very sleek and slick, and nicely done! :3

This is a nice little good news after just finishing my online exam, so... I'll be sure to put this up later!

Congrats!

On another note, I wonder if we can put this in the archives.

I unfortunately don't have space anymore in my sig, so.. here's the next best thing in my dispatch!

Thank you once again, and I hope to see you guys again soon with perhaps a different and longer GIF (I have a lot more designs from experimentation!), along with more... flag-like flags. :3

EDIT: I made some space!

Now that's a capital idea! Idk how, but my sig, with ALL the BBCodes, is currently at 4000+ characters! Around 4250-4300...

But as I asked Fris, the rules of how and what is counted as a character is really bizarre and strange, so.. yeaup!

Well, I hope this can get archived, but just in case, I posted a dispatch. For everyone who has submitted a flag or contributed to the discussion, at least one of their accounts should be tagged there!
https://www.nationstates.net/page=dispatch/id=1358699

I think I'll start the next competition at the beginning of May, just so prior submitters have a bit of time to refine their flags and make new ones.

Any in particular? Because in my testing, they're all working fine. Some of them just take a while to load.

My personal congratulations to Valentine Z for winning 1st place in the competition!



ALL HAIL THE DEAR CAT LEADER! :3

This competition will bring out many players from different walks of life to share their true creativity and vexillological passion. Thanks CM. And congratulations good old friend!
