Dear God, if I see one submitted challenge piece about "Quidditch", I'm going to snap.

O.o so what exactly is the point of having no less than 32 colors?

Maybe because thats the "Challenge". And thats what the past winner decided would be challenging for the participants. Also would you want it to be the same every week? Less than 32 colors, sized less than 200x200, no animation. If you ask me, these challenges lately (with an exception of a couple) have pretty much all been the same. Hopefully the next winner can think of something strange that really makes competitors have to think.

I just don't exactly find having to use 32 colors challenging. Sure it's different, but that doesn't make it more fun.

I was just curious anyways.

well challenging and fun aren't the same...It just adds an extra element to the challenge...although it is a bit weird, it could easily be abused...you could make a 2 colour piece with a rainbow ball with 30 colours.

Wow...is any one going to do this one? I'm kinda' getting scared, as I haven't seen any wips, here. I must admit, I'd hate to see a grown man cry(Adam) on Sunday.

Ahh c'mon you should know how it is :P

no one enters after about 5 days then 3 people enter half-assed entries because they think they'll be able to just win if they just enter something....then 3 other people who think they can do better see that 3 people have already submitted half-assed pixel art...and then submit better stuff and win :O

go go gadget B.O.B!

Here's what I have so far. I have to think of a good background and where to place the opponents.
Hope I can finish this.

Mine is up, just in time to get thrown out of the book store I have been working in. It's a bit rough, but I'm fairly amused by it. I hope the animation shows up, it's not playing in the preview as I write this post, but it does play in the actual entry in my profile.
