For the first time ever, we're holding a 'Wallpaper Contest'! Have an in-game screen that you've taken that you think should be on every player's desktop? Submit it today for a chance to win an awesome prize!
Contest Begins: Now
Contest Ends: September 20, 2013 at 11:59 AM PDT
Participants may submit one (1) original, unaltered in-game screenshot by the date and time listed above.
The image should be linked in a reply to this post -- this will count as an official entry. If you are posting the link in [IMG][/IMG] tags, please also be sure to include the direct link to the image.
The image should be a minimum size of 1920x1200.
To take an image that is sized larger than your monitor, you can try using the "renderscale" chat command: /renderscale X
X = the scale number (i.e. 1.5 = 150% of normal scale, 2 = 200%, etc.).
It's best to start at 1.5 to see if your machine can handle the larger render.
Going over 3 is not recommended as most machines will be unable to support it and your game will crash.
Don't forget to revert back to the original scale after taking your screen! /renderscale 1
We'll add the STO logo to the winning image, so please do not add one yourself.
Winning images will be selected by the PWE Community Team.
One (1) First Place prize: The one (1) winning image* will be featured in the official Wallpapers section of the site, with the creator's forum name holding the byline, as well as in a front-page news post. The 1st place winner will also receive 625 STO Promo Points for the C-Store.
Three (3) Runner-up prizes: A costume of their choice: ToS Formal Uniform, ToS Medical Uniform, ToS Tunic Uniform, or Enterprise Era Uniform.
Good luck, and let's boldly go where no one has gone before!
*The winning image may be adjusted, edited or altered by the PWE Community Team in order to feature it as a wallpaper. This may include cropping, lighting adjustments, logo additions, etc.

gah... only ONE? This is going to be tougher than I thought...
EDIT: I don't know if anyone else does this, but my Windows 7 desktop is set to choose a different random image from my STO screenshots folder every hour. I've got well over a thousand screenshots in there...
