    Thanks for finally putting the voting thread up.

    Just a few things, could you put all the submissions in
    tags? JetFang's .gifs have a tendency to lag up people's pages.

    They're also huge, and god knows people who are less serious about the compo might choose to vote for him only because of those pics standing out so much (nothing against JetFang, but the pics are pretty damn big).

    Looking at the screenshots I was convinced this wasn't even a contest, but Will's are a thousand times more impressive in practice. The screenshot doesn't do them anything close to justice. I'm regretting my impulsive decision right now. Hopefully the other voters take more time to look at the effects than I did, instead of making a quick decisions based on presentation. Eemerald Core, Elun's Fire, Elun's Blessing, Cenarion's Fury, just wow... really nice job.

    Emerald Core is especially impressive. Will you have my vote now for sure, which really doesn't do you any good...

    Why, thank you. I don't get much praise for any of my models, so I appreciate it, I really do. :)

    EDIT: I'm not gonna vote until near the end of the poll... or I won't vote at all.

    Sorry for my rather pompous gifs but some of them but most of them are left out in the 1st post =(

    Will has my vote because he has a very unique style in his sfx that looks simply amazing.

    Pyritie and DonDustin's sfx are simple and effective but Will is more creative.

    For some reason, not all of my models were included in my submission. May I resubmit mine?

    No need. They are in the download, it's just that I did not include all of your pictures.

    I vote for WILLTHEALMIGHTY because his pack was the most original and the 1 with the highest quality.

    WILL's were more original, whereas JetFang's were just redoes of ingame ones (even though I LOVED what you did with those ribbons.)

    My vote goes to WILL.

    I would have to go with WillTheAllmighty on this one, sweet work with the clouds and so many effects! =)

    EDIT: OMG: It's a tie for now between Will and Jet! Exciting!
    PS: This is my 500th post, YAY!

    My vote ends up at WILL THE ALMIGHTY's doorstep.
    Those effects really look 15x better in-game and besides, I really like your style, esp. with your explosion-type things.

    YAY! I'm catching up to JetFang... I might even beat him next time!

    Congrats again, though.

    Congrats to you too along with DonDustin and last but not least, Pyritie! Hmm, demonic theme for the next contest?
