Winner Desktop Compo 2005
News posted 3rd April, 2005 by Rikus  

Yes folks and we got 2 winners - Ecstasy and Nastyman have won this year's Desktop Compo. Congrats and 2 stars are heading to you both. The judges found Ecstasy had a great background and nice layout of the buttons. It was still a close call because there were so many great desktops out there, and we added Nastyman as the winner because a DC admin not to be named (muz) strolled into the voting booth 1 day too late but we decided to count his vote anyway resulting in a tie between the both. Nastyman's desktop won also because of his original design. I want to thank everyone for submitting their desktops. Here is a bigger version of Ecstasy's Desktop. And here is Nastyman's Desktop.

We also have 1 runner up and it's Amnesiasoft's Desktop.

Nastyman had a really nice idea there, personally, I think he should have won for originality, but then again, thats just my oppinion.

Originality is one thing, but the color and composition on that one were just awesome.

Just uploaded some wallpapers for those who are interested.

lol, nastmans desktop should have won... i bet 90% percent of tdc visitors knew a desktop with those anime, manga, whatever chicks is gonna win. and it's pretty boring... i mean...can you look at it for more than 3 days....i certanly can't. blah, that's my opinion

@Shme - I'm lucky if I see my desktop once in three days.

well it is, but cause our hosting company decided to somehow corrupt every one of our sql databases (actually not just ours) we get to start again.

Yeah, Nastyman's should've won, if it had better color usage. That is, unless Ecstasy's desktop was homemade.

What's with all these skimpy little desktops? I've got 64 shortcuts on mine, all of which I use frequently.

I've been spoiled by my programmable hotkeys, one goes to my games, another to my videos, etc. etc.

So you can win this by downloading cool wallpaper and take a screenshot of it? Thats so uncreative :(
Posted by jast 4th April, 2005

I can understand that Nastyman's a winner... But what's so great about some random red anime chick? *Homer Simpson voice* Booooooooooooring!

I need to know what is the font name of the "E|fen Lied" logo in Ecstasy's desktop image.
Posted by norfair 4th April, 2005

ah, I forgot, please.
Posted by Joshua M. 4th April, 2005

Dude, anime chicks are the best. Aren't they just... well, you know the word. XD

w00t I wanted to add something to it, but it seems that I can't delete my comment. Well here it is: KAWAII!
Posted by DaVince 4th April, 2005

Huh? Last time I checked Elfen Lied was the winner... those admin cheat!

Don't look at me, I just correct the spelling.

Actually I keep my desktop very clear, with only My Computer, My Documents and the Recycle Bin on it (in stark contrast to my real-life desktop). At 1280x1024, this seems a bit of a criminal waste of pixels.

@Ecstasy: where the heck are you from? i first thought you are german but i guess you arent so where are you from :-P
Posted by Ecstazy 7th April, 2005

I'm from Israel, MasterM. I'm registered in this website for years, but mostly just read and download a few games. I joined the competition for the hell of it, never guessed I would win. XD By the way, I don't change my wallpapers very often actually. This one is for 3 weeks so far, after the previous one was for about 3 months. And another thing, I'm not some graphics designer wiz, so I don't make fantastic wallpapers of my own or something, I just put something comfortable to the eye (no, not Lucy's boobs, just the usage of colors with a series I liked). And...Nastyman has a really nifty idea for a wallpaper.
Posted by Muz 8th April, 2005

LOL. I didn't think my vote would count. I chose Nastyman's coz while Ecstasy's was good, it don't seem very fair for someone to win a desktop compo if other people would possibly have the same desktop. But still, the tie's well-deserved :P

Added the stars for both of the winners:)
