    Ooh, this looks fun. Might enter this contest. I do have to ask, does anyone know if Imgur offers cropping tools that allows you to select the crop size? Because eyeballing 300 x 300 might be difficult for me.

    Edit: I do have a question though. You said the screenshot has to be captured from in-game, but can it be screenshots found on the net as long as it is Vindi related?

    imgur allows cropping to exactly 300x300.

    Unfortunately you have to capture it yourself. Screenshots found on the net will be grounds for can be grounds for plagiarism

    Hi Saygo. I have joined the contest by posting a picture of Xmas 2013's login screen in the submission thread, resized and cropped to 300x300 as you can see below. Is this one acceptable?

    Definitely! If you took the screenshot and cropped it then I don't see any issues with it.

    I'm stuck with this message on imgur: "1 image uploading..." every attempt for like 2 days.

    And I have no idea how to upload images to puush.me, someone teach me please?

    Or is there a way to upload photos directly here?

    No way to upload photos directly here. Did you sign up for an imgur account.

    Once signed in I just add images using the top right "add images":

    image

    Then just drag whatever image here:

    image

    Then it just shows up in my image folder.

    @Saygo I know the posts says to keep it original ,excluding cropping, but are we allowed to Mirror flip the image or turning the degrees? Since it only mentions "No Filter"

    Probably can't provide high enough quality images to enter, but I'm rooting for anyone who submits more avatars that show off this game's cool helmet options!

    Aren't the submissions for the contest supposed to be closed now? I saw 2 people posted their submissions late and the thread hasn't been locked yet.

    With contests with this many participants, how long does it typically take to pick the winners? Just wondering out of curiosity.
