Photocaption Contest:
Congrats to Duvaindis and Tedro for winning the Photocaption contest, they'll each receive a pet from Bert Bartleby from any location up to Bert at Caras Galadhon.

Custom Emote Contest
As a change of pace, I'd like to have a custom emote (aliase) contest. You can tie the actions from an emote to text of your choice. A custom emote can have five parts.

1) The name you give the custom emote (e.g. ;unext)
2) The emote you want to use the action of (e.g. /rude)
3) Text (e.g. says, you're next)
4) Target (e.g. ;target)
5) More text

The custom emote I use the most uses the action from /rude (finger across the throat followed by pointing at the target), and the text is, "Interitus says, you're next" then the name of whoever I have selected. The code to create it is below.

/alias ;unext /rude says, you're next ;target

The emote is performed when I type ;unext in my chat box.

The person with the most popular custom emote will receive 50 gold. As per suggestion I'll allow entries for the next two weeks (thru June 29th), and have voting overlap with the first week of the next contest.

See you in Middle-earth.

Here's mine:

";tater" = "/eat eats a tater"
/alias ;pullfinger /point says, pull my finger ;target
Also, I don't believe I got my comment submitted in time for the poll. I would think that if there was a tie, that Tedro's submission would be the one.
Yep, my mistake. Thanks.
Here's one:

/alias ;bananahero /heropose is inspired by bananas heroically and raises his sword to the power of bananas
I was afraid this would be too confusing, but I'm surprised how quickly everyone has taken to it, and how funny/entertaining your emotes are.
