I'm going to be making one. I don't know if it will look good or not. If it comes to the deadline and I haven't sent one in, then most likely I won't ever.

Yea, unfortunately it seems so. I guess people are afraid to submit not knowing how well they already did compare to others...

If that is the case, that's a real pussy reason. I mean seriously people, it's just for fun.

I still think we should keep entries private until voting day. It makes things more intense and far more interesting.. IMO the other way wasn't much fun at all, with people constantly changing up their submissions just because they felt intimidated by another entry, or whatever the reason. I think everyone should just take a risk and be confident in what you come up with. ^____^ Seriously, that's all I did and I know I'm not half as savvy w/PS as some of the past winners on here. I don't care tho.

The anonymous, double blind submission approach sounds interesting and secure all together, I suppose it lacks of advertisement aspects?

Sorry katya, life's a bitch. So I'll chose death. xD

I have an idea.

Let's get back to the old ways of SOTW. Let's submit the signatures in the thread from now on, and sticky this thread. That's the only way this competition will not die. I don't care about filling up the sticky area, it's not like it matters anyways. Who cares if people copy each other, it just adds to the competition. It's fun that way. Now it's like a task to do a signature, and private message the one who started the SOTW.

Just my opinion, but I think it would help the SOTW a lot. You know what they always say, don't fix what ain't broken, and the SOTW at the beginning was not broken. So, let's get back to how it was please.

*Oh, and I'm finishing up my signature right now, to submit it.

maybe we can still do PM stuff, but people can put little thumbnails of what their sigs look like of a cropped part of their sig

I suppose a compromise is better than noting.. *Deep heavy sigh*

I'm not thrilled on the idea of public entries but whatever. dry.gif Only, maybe we should stick to the rule of "no changes once submitted"? I mean, people will still be able to see all the entries before submitting their own but once they submit it---that's it. Anyway, two more cents of mine.

Question tho: are the competitions only dead when entries are private? Or could participation be a result of mid-week to weekend schedules? I dunno. Maybe it's just a bad week? Only been around for three contests so I'm not really sure how active these things typically are.

No, the original way, or no way at all.

Obviously this new way is not working. Who cares if it's public? Who cares if someone gets "inspired" by your stuff and kinda does something like it? I mean, seriously. It's only going to heighten the competition, and that's a good thing. Plus, it's not like someone could copy things exactly like another person. Not everybody can do that.

[TEST]


i think stuff like that would be cool

they would bump the topic, so that more people see it and hopefully enter, and at the same time will invigorate things because of the mystery of people's preview submissions

It'd be cool if the host could make the signature teasers for the participants? If not, then individuals should make their own so that we could keep the topic bumped. Yeah, I do believe it will motivate people by some extra incentive to join. Bumping is an essential.

With these teasers, non-artists (members) could have a earlier peek to the signatures (part of it) So they'll remember to vote which one prior to the voting.

I would also like to make a suggestion, that the hosts to have the URL of the SOTW thread link copied into their sig, to advertise the event. I know I'm in no position to say this since I don't have enough time to come up with one. I lack of motivation and spare time. ^^"

WRONG

Mk, this will just make people have to do one more thing. It's going to be like, "I have to make a signature, and afterwards I have to make a little box with the sig to show people." Look, the best way to do this, is to limit the steps in this competition. Adding one more thing to do, is going to make people definitely not want to enter. If you don't believe me, watch yourselves. Make a SOTW just like the way you are thinking, and see if a lot of people submit their works.

Again, I will repeat, what was wrong with how SOTW was in the first place? There's too many rules to such a simple and what's suppose to be FUN thing. If you are going to take offense to someone kinda copying your style, then maybe you should check yourself. It's just for fun. To some it's the only fun thing to this forum.

I say bring back the way the SOTW use to be. If not, then you will continue to see people not wanting to do any SOTW. But, I don't control this site, so do what you all please. Idc.

Ding ding ding! I agree.

However, I think another reason why there are less participants is because a lot of the people that were active earlier like Xii and -Josh- are currently inactive and are on vacation and such. Plus school started for a lot of people it seems so many have less time for such things.
