Not anymore, his captures TF2 he most accurately, you can't deny that. I think tahko should win though cause he snuck some L4D stuff in there. If dumpling drew a black guy saying "pills here", it would've been all him.

Ahh, before everyone finishes voting, I would like to explain some of the reasoning behind the images I included:

1) mom says ATG is good.
-Mothers are very respected and looked up to in society. By having one say, ATG is good, is clearly a great compliment; only the best of the best would get such a comment by someone so clearly looked up to by many people.

2) dog
-ATG is like a dog, if one thinks about it. It started out as a little puppy server, being nursed players by XFG. However, as time passed on, XFG, ATG's 'mother server', decided it was time to let her pup go; it was mature enough to survive in the wild. Which it did, with rousing success. One could even say ATG is the alpha male in the wolf pack that consists of TF2 and L4D servers.

3) demoman
-Mandatory. I couldn't be racist, had to have a token black guy in their somewhere. It also shows the true appreciation for the revolutionary kritzkreigs, as well as the subtle finesse of direct pills.

4) Bat
-I chose the bat to represent the Administration we have here at ATG. A bat can be used to punish, however it is not as harsh as other forms of doing so. It will often give a few 'warning hits' before finally delivering the final blow. One more thing, just like our admins, the bat is a home run! After skewing multiple layers, increasing and decreasing the opacity, and finally going through multiple hues and tones of colors, the bat was well worth the time spent.

5) Scout
-The scout represents the hardships many face; being on fire, for instance. However, he always has that goofy smile on his face, because deep-down he knows that ATG will always be there for him.

6) heart
-The heart is a symbol for the relationships that one can find and create at ATG. From new friendships, even as far as new lovers, ATG is full of new possibilities.

7) sentry gun
-What would a server be without the actual machines? That's right, not a server. Here at ATG, our servers are always being repaired (from the overload of incoming masses) and upgraded, just like a sentry gun.

8) woohoo
-I decided to choose the phrase, "Woohoo", to represent all of the excitement that goes on here. From the everyday "Overtime! Quick rush the cart in!", to this fantastic banner contest, ATG is always making at least one person say "Woohoo"; they just can't contain themselves here!

9) rainbow border
-The rainbow border is a symbol for several things. From member diversity, all the way to being the fun, joyous rainbow (ATG) after the storm (XFG dying), the rainbow can be interpreted many ways.


That is all. I just wanted to explain my choices, as it is clear that I have put more time and thought into my banner than most others have. I'm not trying to sway any votes, I just wanted to let everyone know that there really is a deep, significant meaning behind all of those hand-drawn pictures.
Thank you for reading,

After first place is determined, we should do 2nd and then 3rd separately. or is that already the game plan...?

Yeah, that's a good idea, but then it'd be a much longer voting process.

I think voting is now over.

Congrats to the winners.

I'm thinking Newman will do the prize gifting and such so you'll probably hear from him soon.
