Dear visitors and members, with the staff having moved on to other life interests and as a result of changes in people's internet usage habits, the CodeWalrus community have migrated almost entirely to Discord, IRC and WalrusIRC and is now essentially a place where to hang out, chat about gaming, programming, music, anime, and chill. As a result, even though the CW forums will remain open for posting, for faster TI, Casio or HP calculator help and news we recommend using the bilingual TI-Planet forums instead.

We encourage everyone to join our Discord server now.

* WalrusIRC

You need to have 5 posts and not be part of restricted usergroups in order to use the WalrusIRC embedded shoutbox. However, you can also access our IRC channel called #CodeWalrus via EFnet.

This contest's topic is: :3= ! To be eligible for a prize, you must make a program that creates walruses of all hues!
To be eligible, you must make a topic showing your progress, with the "[UCC4]" tag in the title.

The contest will end on March 31st, 2018 at 11:59:59 EDT (hopefully on-time). No late entries will be accepted.

Users should be able to enter two hex values in #RRGGBB format: one for the body, and one for the eyes. On-Calculator entries in ICE/C/Assembly will be allowed to use the xlib color palette, and TI-Basic entries... well... GLHF...

Only the gray parts of the :3= should be tinted with the color for the body, and only the coloring of the eyes should be tinted for the eye color.

All pixels should be tinted relatively:
For example, the dark grays on the :3= should become darker reds than the light grays if I enter #FF0000 as the body color. Notice how the golden walrus in my signature and in the below spoiler has dark golden tones where the normal walrus has dark grays.

You cannot release source publicly until after the contest, to avoid plagiarism.

*keep your entry SFW, please*

 Note: due to the laws of the universe, it is not possible/is extremely difficult to contribute an entry if you happen to die at the hands flippers of an axe-murderer walrus during this contest. Be careful.

You will be judged on these criteria, although your entry can be penalized at the discretion of the judges, to some extent:
- overall project detail and completeness, including functionality and design
- code readability
- interaction with other users, including the reception and distribution of feedback.
- overall ingenuity.
- number of walruses involved (we aren't kidding this time)

We are placing an emphasis on readability, so that future users can potentially learn something from your code.

Contest judges (i.e. me, but you can request to be one if you have over 100 posts, just ask in this thread. Only 2 more judges will be accepted.) are not allowed to participate, and cannot win prizes.

As for prizes, printable walrus "diplomas" will be issued to the top three winners, signed by the contest judges under their usernames. (If you are accepted as a judge, PM me a pic of your signature, signing as your username)
