It looks nice, maybe you should use the original update background. I think I'll join the haxxys with a fake poster. Again, nice one mate.

That's wonderful and all, but that font hurts my eyes when trying to read those paragraphs of text :(

did you know that spinning stars work like this???

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. execute_strings on fire off the shoulder of Overmars. I watched object-beams glitter in the dark near the room_goto_fix. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears...in...rain. Time to die.

This is good but the white background is somewhat offputting

It's good but, it's so monocolored. I personally like adding lots of colours(well, when you think Apple you automatically think of white and clean, meh). Also,
maybe you should use the original update background

Why do you think it that good? Majority of art is taken from this guy. Stop kissing ass, you can easily do something better and I recommend you to do it.

I TOTALLY agree that people should make their own update posters "and stop kissing ass" :z8:, but I didn't take any art from anybody... I'm sure other people have made achievements and hats before, but I made my own without seeing those posts. :z6: Anyways, we've got till August 20th to make this the best Haxxy awards yet. Lets do it!

Yeah, I thought about that too. I was going for the whole "Apple" look, and the clean, white background is their "thing". I know the text can be a little hard to read, but hey, it "looks different". :z5: Anyways, I'd love to see others fix my mistakes and make something awesome.

Umm, false. Your hats are exactly like Yoghurt's. You know, it's okay to take art from other people but saying that you made it yourself is just meh.

I was pointing some stuff up and encourage someone to make the poster that he abandoned because of this, apparently best one. Why do you say I'm desperate?
