The Sixth Nation Community's SotW Contest
Current Theme
Retro/ Classic Games



Entry period: Sunday June 12th- Monday June 20th
All entries must be pm'ed to me by the day of the deadline
See rules for more details.
Good luck all. The winning image will be displayed on our Portal Page with a widget that links to this topic in the hope to build more traffic and entries week to week.








The Signature of the Week is a contest and as such a few rules should be followed to ensure a fair competition.
Below is a list of rules that must be adhered to in order to achieve that goal. Any person, entry, etc that violates these rules will be disqualified from the contest.

Official Entry Rules..(subject to edits)

  • Signatures must follow the current theme, which will be posted on this same post.
  • Signatures must be your own original work. Using stocks and renders are fine.
    No copying, stealing, or altering an existing sig however.
  • Signatures that break the current SixthNation Forum Rules will not be accepted
  • Signatures can not exceed a size of 450 x 200
  • Entries must be pmed to me with in the deadline.
    Alterations can be made after an entry is in, as long as it too is in by deadline.
  • All entries should be uploaded to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] so the user name isn't visible on right-click 'properties'.
  • You must not share your image by PM,Post, etc. Entrants must remain anonymous at all times through the deadline and voting period.



OTHER RULES OF THIS THREAD

  • No campaigning. Contestants will be anonymous so there's no reason to campaign. If you campaign anyway your votes will be discounted from the final result.
  • No chatting. There are discussion threads for that.
  • Do not guess at who made what signature. The entire point to this is to keep contestants anonymous to ensure fair voting. If you guess at who made what it will influence the final outcome. Don't do it.
  • Do not ask who made what signature. You're not supposed to know until the very end.
  • Do not discuss whether or not you will enter. If you publicly announce that you will enter it may indicate who already has.
  • Do not discuss missed deadlines, because that can also indicate who has/hasn't entered.
  • Do not mention what editing program you would be using to create signatures.


Voting

  • Voting will most likely be done by poll. In order to avoid people voting for themselves, votes might be done by post. I haven't decided yet.
  • The voting period will probably run for the duration of the weekend. The winner will be announced Monday, along with the next theme.
  • I will most likely activate the Gallery where all winners will be displayed. Winners of the SotW contest will be awarded either regular or reputation points.


The first theme will most likely go up tom. Oct. 5th-9th (I think thats right)

Thanks and good luck everyone.

Yeah we could just poll it. Even run that poll widget on the portal too, but it would be hard to display the sigs on it.
Thinking
Actually no it wouldnt, but it may take one whole side of the portal.

The thing with the public vote is that it doesn't always come down to the most professional looking sig... It's what appeals most that is likely to win. Very Happy= :D

We should get a hold of crash, just to see if he would be intrested in entering in them. I can try to "run" it unless someone else is really up for it.

So as of now 3 or 4 people in?

So I uninstalled GIMP, dl'ed again and re installed.

First order of business was a new graphic for the Theme night promo on the portal.
Everything was running smooth and fine. The image was looking sweet. I was making a few final small changes and.......



......THE GD THING FROZE!!!!!

Always.
I dont get it. The other version was so much better. I never had these kinds of problems with it. SO idk. Since I'm unsure how much Ill ever be able to enter, Ill host SotW. This way there is no concern of shenanigans too.

A question I had though...

Is once a week too often with as small as we are now? Maybe every 2 weeks, or once a month?
Input please.
Ill start working out a better OP, and thinking on the first theme.

On the Label SoTW we had the following rule... Don't know if you think it's worth doing or not. Thinking

For anonimity, all entries should be uploaded to tinypic so the username isn't visible on right-click 'properties'. Wink

One entry in. I will wait to display them all at once on Fri so no one can build a liking to one before any others show up.

We do have three now. cheers

I may (and breaking one of my own rules here quick in this announcement) may enter anyhow.
Just to help beef up the number of options (I guess is the word).

If there are objections to that, its cool no sweat. Just let me know and I wont.
