  1. Yup. You usually say that...every time.
  2. You're welcome. Thank you. And everyone who has left feedback.
  3. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback regarding the offensiveness of the pink. I had some lavender leaves in my hand and finally put two and two together that I had balanced the colors wrong. I've fixed it (maybe? ) now so please enjoy less pain in your eyes. Old: vs. New:
  4. It is lavender and the buttons also offend my senses until I see it close to the banner. I used the green to offset the pink and blue from looking like a baby shower. The menus and main color schemes are supposed to be green grass, pink (lavender) flowers, and a blue sky. I very much enjoy building with the new purple/pink palette LEGO has introduced in the last several years. However, when I photoshop color pick from the banner, I do not have a good reaction to it and first. But it's Springy!
  5. I'm sure you're not the only person who doesn't like it. I would never try to please everyone. Not possible. We need to be open to criticism. Like you used the wrong word there. You meant "too" and you misspelled Pepto-Bismol. Thanks for the feedback.
  6. There is a lot of information to get into these threads and I don't always get it right but we're going with the 25th as I've already tallied the voting totals and a week is a typical contest time. So, yes, I'm sure the voting is closed. I'll edit the first post to reflect the correct day and date. I only opened this so parsom and Contino could respond but since people are voting still, I'll lock it again.
  7. And the Winners are... After 82 members voted (thank you for that!) a top 3 emerged! Without further ado, the winners are... *drum roll* First place 14. Ice House by LittleJohn Second place 1. Chocolate Factory by mouseketeer Third place 15. Glass Blower's Shop and Workshop by eliza Congratulate the winners and check out all of the great entries in this topic.

  9. Which admin were you writing to? I organized the contest and I didn't receive any PM from you. I had kept a list from the beginning (Pandora started it, thank you! :wub:) and it had the original name of the thread. Personally, I like the German name better. The link to the discussion thread takes you to the 2016 thread. I'm not sure what you're referring to "last year" as the entry must be new in order to be eligible for the contest. @parsom @Contino I'm not sure why you are posting this here, the voting thread for a Winter Village contest. Please read the Site Guidelines. You must post on–topic and in English. If you would like to find instructions for Technic sets, please try the Technic forum. Also, perhaps you can introduce yourself in the Hello, my Name is... thread and get to know the community. Thank you.
  10. Is it possible to change the name of my entry for Winter Village (there is old name in the voting thread  - I've changed it for: "Winter Village: Gasthaus (Moving Nativity Scene)" - http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/145187-winter-village-gasthaus-moving-nativity-scene/)

    And link to the discussion thread is wrong - it moves to the last year discussion.

      Oh, you left the comment here. :blush: Sorry. I didn't notice this. Send me a PM next time, please.
