    I have removed your email address so the email harvesters will not spam you. BTW, if you can't be bothered to check back here for an answer to your question, we can't be bothered to help you.
  2. I'll be passing out the awards shortly.
  3. Welcome to the 2018 Paint.NET Forum Awards Show! Where you decided the best of 2018, the worst of 2018, and everything in between! Hi, I'm your host, BoltBait. OK, let's dive right in to the first award for the evening... The Mimi Bobeck Award: This one's for the biggest forum troll of 2018 on the Paint.NET forum. As I'm sure you're aware, a forum troll is someone who posts a lot, whose posts don't always have an overflow of useful content, and who's posts are typically contrarian in nature. Not to say that they never have relevant posts, but -- ah hell, it's 2018, you guys know what a forum troll on the Internet is by now. The nominees for this award include: ugh, too many to list And, the big winner with 31% of the vote is... ScrapbookwithPDN Congratulations (I think?) Now, one for the mods of this wonderful board. The Real Estate Award: This one's for the mod who tends to close posts the most – they are always there, just waiting for someone to break the rules or post something useless. Decide that you're gonna make a post wrong forum? BAM! This guy moves it before you even get a reply. Some n00b spamming the forums with Viagra ads? BAM! Bant! Not only does this guy close posts, but he wields the banhammer in a way which would make Thor proud. The nominees for this award include, surprisingly enough: most of the mods! The runner-up with 22% of the vote is... BoltBait (Hey! That's me!) And, the winner with 67% of the vote is... toe_head2001 Keep up the great work! Now, back to an award you probably don't want to win. The "Wrong End of A Massive Pwnage" Award: You have seen it before… a member posts their unsupported opinion as fact and you just watch and wait for an intelligent member to come in and fry them. This award is, as the title suggests, for the member who has been on the wrong end of a massive pwnage, or has one coming their way sooner than later. The nominees for this award include: HCGS, IHaveNoName,and Sakana Oji The runner-up with 29% of the vote is... CodeDmitry The winner with 57% of the vote is... HyReZ Congrats! And, be on the lookout for that massive pwnage! Next up, an award that no one would be embarrassed to win. The Proton Award: This one is for the member who, overall, has the most positive input to the Paint.NET forum. Whether it's through modship, Paint.NET help, organizing UBB games, valuable input in the suggestions threads, etc; this member is always there to give something back to the community. The nominees for this award include: too many to list (which is a testament to how great our board is) The runner-up with 18% of the vote is... Pixey The winner with 38% of the vote is... Ego Eram Reputo Now for an award where just about everyone came in second. The Big Bird Award: This one is for the friendliest soul on the boards. Thoughts toward the vernacular aside, the winner of The Big Bird Award is someone who's always warm, friendly and fuzzy to the other members. The nominees for this award include: Ego Eram Reputo and lynxster4 The runner-up with 18% of the vote is... HyReZ And, the winner with 64% of the vote is... Seerose Wow! You look great in yellow! Next, we have an award that everyone would win, if only we knew you better. The Howard Hughes Award: This one goes out to the most eccentric member of the boards. Whether it's stem cell research, abortion, or what they had for lunch yesterday; this member always seems to be on the other side of a debate. Of course, this award doesn't go to just any argumentative soul, this one's for someone who does it well. The nominees for this award include: HCGS and Dipstick The runner-up with 25% of the vote is... Welshblue And, the winner with 50% of the vote is... HyRez Way to go! The Radiance Award: This award goes out to the most brilliant Paint.NET forumer. This person always has something to say, and sure enough, they're usually right. They know everything about some things, and seemingly something about everything. When someone struck you as a smart cookie, this is where you acknowledged that. The nominees for this award include: The runner-up with 19% of the vote is... Ego Eram Reputo And, the winner with 31% of the vote is... BoltBait Keep on shining! Rookie of the Year Award: This award goes out to the new member who made the biggest impact on the community. To be eligible for this award, the user must have joined after January 1, 2018. The nominees for this award include: Sakana Oji, Mallaboro, and Rick Brewster? The winner with 33% of the vote is... IHaveNoName Now, there's an award you can't win twice in a row! The Homer Simpson Award: This award goes out to the funniest forum member. Whether it be wit, shock value, clever writing, or some other form of humor which I'm invariably forgetting, this member is always on top of it. The nominees for this award include: Scooter The runner-up with 33% of the vote is... BoltBait The winner with 56% of the vote is... Welshblue You all crack me up! Now, for the award that no one wants to win (or do they?) The Pauly Shore Award: This one goes to the unfunniest member. Maybe their wit isn't witty, or their shock value is too much. Whatever the case, here's your chance to recognize someone who specifically doesn't make you laugh. Oh, sure, they try... but always seem to come up short. The nominees for this award include: BoltBait, dipstick, IRON67, and IHaveNoName The runner-up with 22% of the vote is... GillFelis The winner with 38% of the vote is... MJW Better try more loller cats, guys! The Hit & Miss Award: This one's for the member who we miss -- for whatever reason (work, real life, bannination, death by meteor, etc.) they've left the discussion, and the Paint.NET forum members want them back. The nominees for this award include: HELEN The runner-up with 27% of the vote is... TechnoRobbo And, the winner with 64% of the vote is... Red ochre We miss you! Come back! The Spool Awards: This category recognizes members who are big names in certain threads or certain types of threads for their knowledge or help. Captain N: (The UBB gamer) Zagna The MVP: (The sports guru) -NONE- Siskel & Ebert: (The movie guru) BoltBait Rolling Stone: (The music guru) BoltBait 101010: (The computer guru) toe_head2001 Congrats to all! Next, on to the awards for Paint.NET prowess! The Picasso Award: This one goes to the member who consistently creates the weirdest art (in a good way) using Paint.NET. The nominees for this award include: BlastWave, lynxster4, and TREVOR The runner-up with 27% of the vote is... SeeRose And, the winner with 40% of the vote is... Rickhum Well deserved recognition! The Monet Award: This one goes to the member who consistently creates the most beautiful art using Paint.NET. The nominees for this award include: MJW, Lynxster4, and Welshblue The runner-up with 27% of the vote is... Pixey And, the winner with 36% of the vote is... Woodsy The GE Award: This one goes to the author who created the best plugin of 2018. The nominees for this award include: ...just the 2 winners... The runner-up with 19% of the vote is... MadJik The winner with 91% of the votes is... null54 for the plugin G'MIC I think we're *all* the winners of this award, don't you? The Marilyn Monroe Award: This award is for the best shape of 2018. The nominees for this award include: ...just the winner... The winner with 100% of the vote is... Lynxster4 The Marlboro Award: Ever see one of those sigs and thought "Wow, that really makes me think!", or "Gee, that's awesome!"? Well, here's the category where you get the chance to recognize the member with that sig. This award is for the best signature of 2018. The nominees for this award include: TrevorOutlaw, lynxster4, and GillFelis The runner-up with 18% of the vote is... Woodsy The winner with 55% of the vote is... Pixey Paint.NET's Rabbi: This one goes to the best teacher of 2018. Authors of tutorials newly written this year are eligible. The nominees for this award include: ...just the winners... The runner up with 20% of the vote is... lynxster4 The winner with 80% of the vote is... Welshblue I think we can all learn from you! Now, a few things thrown in just for fun! 1) “And your newest mod for the Paint.NET forum is null54!” 2) “Wow, look, Pixey is showing their art in the Louvre!” 3) “Hey, BoltBait has his own TV show!” 4) “Hello, I’m Rick Brewster, and I’m an alcoholic.” 5) “In local news, police have finally gunned down pyrochild from his murderous rampage.” 6) “OMGWTFLOLBBQ, Rick Brewster just got bant good!” (If this actually happens, you'll be the first to know!!!) (My keyboard is on fire now... can't feel my fingers...) And, finally, the award you’ve all been waiting for... The Kings/Queens of Paint.NET: This award is plainly & simply the popularity contest you know you all want. You select 4 of this year's most popular forum members -- be they friendly, smart, interesting, funny, some of the above, none of the above, or what -- this award is for your favorite posters. As one voter put it, "I'll let you decide who are the kings and who are the queens!" The nominees for this award include: BlastWave, BoltBait, Ego Eram Reputo, HyRez, MJW, Seerose, and Woodsy The third place spot with 11% of the vote is... Welshblue The runner-up with 14% of the votes is... lynxter4 *Drum roll, please* And, the clear winner with 19% of the vote is... Pixey the Queen of Paint.NET! Well done, one and all! That about wraps it up for this year. I'd like to thank each and every one who turned in a ballot. You guys rock! And, to all the winners, I raise my glass, "cheers!" Good night. Rick, use a designated driver. Be safe, everyone. See you all next year! You may now give your Acceptance Speeches and Congratulatory Messages below...
  4. Yes. Effects > Render > Flames is located in the Burninate.DLL file. You can verify this by hovering your mouse over the effect menu item and look at the bottom line of the tool tip.
  5. I suspect that the effects that are doubled in the menu are the same files in both directories. However, some of your effects are not doubled. You should leave those files alone. (Although, to be honest, you can move all DLL files to the same directory. That might be one good way to be sure you don't have duplicate files.)
  6. If you have DLL files in both directories, pick one directory and delete the files in there. You should only install DLL files to ONE of those directories, not both.
  7. That looks good. Now, look at my additional edits above and report back.
  8. If you are running the "classic" version of Paint.NET, go to the following directory and show us a screenshot: c:\program files\paint.net\Effects If you're running the "store" version instead, go to the following directory and show us a screenshot: cd %USERPROFILE%\Documents\paint.net App Files\Effects You should only have plugin dll files in ONE of those two directories. Another thing you can check: Hover your mouse over the duplicate entries in the menu and compare the file paths: If the paths are different, you can eliminate one set of plugin files. If you do this, be sure to keep the newest versions of the plugins (compare the version number in the top line of the tool tip as shown above).
