So here is my idea for the competitions that will go on around here. 

 

1. Mod makes thread announcing the Theme.

2. Mod gives one week time for the users to PM him their themed artwork.

3. Mod makes topic after a week with the entries but NO NAMES. (So no one will know who made what)

4. Users vote on the best artwork by posting or by poll (haven't decided yet).

5. Winner is declared at the end of the voting time.

6. Winner gets an award to celebrate the win.

 

 

What do you guys think?

 

Also as an additional question:

 

What do we do with continuous winners?

If someone is so good that he wins every week, then the others will be demotivated and not join the competitions because he will win anyway. We need to find a way to limit how many times someone can join in. I was thinking that once you won 2 competitions in a  row, you must skip the next 2 ones to give others a chance. 

What do you guys think?

Love the idea! i'd love to participate.

Think the poll might be the way to go when it comes to voting, but make sure you can't vote on your own ;p

We've not decided on who will be in charge of what yet.

Polls, sadly, don't prevent abuse.

Sounds good to me. Am I right in assuming that this mod wouldn't be able to participate in the competition themselves?

 

Maybe we can use a poll but show who people voted for. Therefore if we see that someone has voted for their own entry, they can get a warning or be disqualified or something. That does seem a bit harsh but as long as it's made clear that you can't vote for yourself it should be fine.

I don't see why the mod can't be in it. Since the judging is done by the community, there won't be a way they can be unfair.

 

Yeah. We may just stick with polls. We'll watch it and see how it goes. If that goes wrong we'll move to a manual post-to-vote system.

Maybe I'm not getting it, but if the entries are going to be unnamed then how will we know if someone voted for themselves?

Maybe if they win 3 in a row instead? 2 seems like it could be luck.

Seeing as how the mod running it will be well aware of who submitted what... It's will be their responsibility to check things like this.

Mods can participate. There's no reason not too since the votes decide the best sig not the mods.

More people will vote if we use polling. Also, if people vote for themselves, big deal. Everyone will vote for themselves and it shouldn't really make an unfair impact. If everyone votes for themselves than there is no inequality. I'd volunteer to mod on this as well if you're looking. Can't wait for this to get rolling!

I think posting would be better because then you can do it like.

 

Winning Tag - (1,2,3,4,5 etc)

Why? - (Explain why it was the best)

I think polls would work best since sometimes there is people(like me) that are too lazy to explain why or write at all

Also there should be a rule against saying if you are a competitor either in public or PM i dont believe anyone is such a douche but you never know if there is a person that goes around PMing people for votes

It would be awesome if you expanded the concept of SOTW and made restricions like no c4ds this week or smudge sigs this week to both make it more interesting and have competitors work on more then 1 style for their own benefit

This is called a theme. Themes are already planned.

The things he said are techniques not themes. I think a theme would be something like Illusion, No way out, Incomplete, etc. Just examples but you get the idea.

Are those not simply titles to express a theme?
