Merry Christmas VoA members!

Post by starlet_Luver »

Merry X-mas VoA

We would like to say "Merry Christmas" to each and every one of you. We know this year a lot of us did not have much to be merry about with the Corona virus keeping us away from our loved ones, and a lot of political upheaval (that is still going on sadly). But we think that we have a lot of things to be blessed with in our lives with still having the chance to hear and see (via technology) our love ones.
It is this same technology that allow us (VoA members family) to stay connected with each other and to share in our lives together.
That is what we think we should all be thankful for and we should celebrate.

So VoA (Staff) wanted to celebrate the spirit of Christmas with gifts to our membership. Below are the things the VoA staff has put together for you:

This year we decided to do something different then the usual sharing of the many older X-mas banners our staff has created over the years and instead decided to have a Christmas banner contest where the members could participate in.
We've had several members join in on this contest and they created some amazing Christmas banners for the VoA forum. I want to thank those members for sharing their magical work with us. Our thanx goes out to LanasGirl, Rba, Human, The Raven and doodah. In fact, we've had so many good banners to choose from that we ended up changing the rules somewhat so instead of having to pick one winner of the contest we decided to pick the 3 best banners from the list and rotate between them during the holidays.

The top 3 winning banners of the Christmas banner contest 2020 are:

Doodah-Human VoA banner 2.jpg
LanasGirl VoA banner 1.jpg
TheRaven VoA banner 1.jpg

These 3 winners of the contest will have their banner showcased on our forum and we will rotate these 3 banners starting today and ending on the start of the new year.

So please marvel at the incredible works of art these members produced to celebrate Christmas at VoA!

We would also like to show all the other Christmas banners we'd received during the contest which did not win the top 3 slots but still are amazing works of art just the same. Just look at how awesome they are!

The celebration continues with the staff deciding to process (we know, overdue) promotions for the holidays. So please give a warm hug to the newly promoted members:

I don't deserve any credit for doodah's banner, all I did was add some text to the bottom! :P

You know you're getting old when you do'n't even recognize half of the new "senior members".

Oh well, Merry Christmas. And get off my lawn.
