Forum Graphic Contest!

Tuesday, February 5th, 2008 by Mr.Mouse

To celebrate the 5 year anniversary of the Xentax Game Research Forum this year, we are organizing a graphic contest! The idea is to create a new header for the forum that will serve as front from then on! Winner takes $125, second $50 and third $25! Any entry will be considered for rotation at the site, regardless of prize! If you think are up to it, then here’s the requirements:

  • Entries should be in PNG or JPG format, with source files depending on art program
  • Dimensions Width x Height = 1024 (max) x 150 pixels
  • Games, Gaming and/or Game Research themes are obligatory
  • XeNTaX logo/text should preferably retain the XNTX capitalization
  • The text “Game Research Forum” must be sufficiently legible


  • Points are awarded by forum visitors and the board of the Xentax Foundation
  • Xentax Foundation has the final verdict, because the winning entry must fit the overall aim, purpose and layout of the site if it is to to be used. This verdict cannot be contested.
  • If not enough entries are submitted, the contest will be forfeit. There will be a reward solely for the best entry up to that time ($50).

Deadline: March 15th 2008

Game Research Forum renewed

I have installed phpBB3 and converted the old data of the Game Research Forum to the new one. Now we should have more functionality for users and be up to date at the same time. Some features may still be missing, which I hope to fix soon. Visit the new forum at: !
