It was a brutal battle, but 11 banners came out on top of the 40 entries. Also, have some minor site updates, cuz why not?
First, and most importantly, the 11 new banners for Crymore:
Courtesy of Humanity, who’s always made sexy banners for us.
Courtesy of Ellis, who implied they’d be entering multiple times, but let my sagey heart down.
Courtesy of MegaPear, who is MegaPear.
Courtesy of Aura, who went 2-for-2. Those fucking colors <3. The last banner’s really busy, but I loved the creative rule interpretation.
Courtesy of pizzalove, who probably didn’t realize I hate Trigun. And also, Vash has absolutely no thematic link to the blog, so I don’t understand the fascination.
Courtesy of lololol, whose strategy of “enter as many banners as possible that fit the Monokuma and Asuka theme” actually worked out.
I’m hype for the refresh.
Meta, not worth its own post:
New fansub review queue is up (here). Review order is now decided based on comment votes. We’ll see how it turns out.
Translation parties are still broken. You can thank the instability of PHP in WordPress and WordPress’s compatibility-breaking updates for that. I don’t know when these will be fixed, but I will try upon the next WordPress version update.
