I think MJW does this

Though in theory I don't object to the use of plugins in comps before they're published, ever since a long-ago kerfuffle involving that issue, I've studiously avoided using any plugins in that I haven't released in time for others in the same competition to also use them.

Thank you everyone for discussing your thoughts on the subject of personal plugin use in competitions - now we know they are okay 👍

There is no functional Toast plugin.

 

The image was created for entertainment purposes.

 

In these bleak plague days, anything to evoke a smile might be considered of value.

 

Whether it is deemed an invalid entry is of no concern to me.

 

 

Now, regarding the Jam.

 

As of this writing, the Jam remains not fully rendered.

 

But I haven't given up!  🙂

I think we all enjoy a joke, but there are areas on the forum for that 😅 Just not in the OotF# Entries thread please 😱

Peeps, @ardneh's entry complies with the rules of the comp. Personally, I thought it was clever & funny. Really? Anyone who has ever had kids will know the joys of finding expired food in unexpected places. Maybe that is why we know have CDs & not VCRs? :D 

 

On the subject of unpublished plugins...if you have the ability to write one cool. Not everyone can use the published plugins effectively - like me :D So no unfair advantage as far as I can see. That being said, if you really like a plugin that someone has created, why not ask them to publish it? Some plugins so have a limited use so maybe the author feels that publishing it is of no real benefit? 

 

Some really lovely pieces of toast here & not a single one is burnt :D

Just to clarify:

 

The objected to image was this.

 

The original (illegal) comment I posted with the image was:
"WOW. All these awesome plugins really make things easy!" 

 

Definitely a rule breaker. 😀

OMG! You cheeky thing! Yes, disqualified :D Definitely repost in the comedy thread or your own gallery. Fancy putting anchovies in that list :D I think it would be fun to have a post about what people would put on their toast. I see there is cheese & carrots, a few with jam or marmalade, tomato but nobody put vegemite!

 

I thought it was the mouldy old toast that was the issue.

 

Now we can all play nicely again

That is clever!  I missed the original post as it was already removed. Thank for posting the link. And I do love your 'moldy' toast. 👍

 OOTF - Chess piece 2/21:

1. Your entry must not have a background/backdrop/scene; just the object on a transparent canvas. Shadows and reflections are fine.

 

 

I know that the rules state the object must be on a transparent canvas. In the past a black canvas has been allowed for example for planets so the image looks better. Is a black canvas allowed for this OOTF? If I am successful at creating what I want as an entry the image would be more visible and look better on a black canvas, which is why I am asking beforehand before putting the effort on an entry that is not allowed. Thanks in advance for the clarification 😊.

As the Competition has already begun, and there are already 4 entries, I'm afraid we can't change it to a black background. 

 

Sorry about that @Ladybug

@PixeyNo problem, at least I will take a different route for my chess piece. @ANONYMISS, the rules have been bent before to allow a black background which is why I asked. But I was a slow on the gun draw with my question but at least I won't put the time into what I wanted to do originally for the competition; who knows maybe will still do it for my Gallery in the future 😁.

I think you may have used a photograph 'The Bean' for the map @Djisves ? If so, I'm afraid photos are not allowable.  Great image tho' :)

Yes I used "the bean" which I've turned into an eMap (and offered somewhere in this forum). Is this how far the "no photos" rule applies? I'll replace it then using a new eMap that I've made myself.

 

EDIT: I've found the Bean here.
