SOTM 2008 - June (NonHuman) - Entry Phase


!!!Welcome to the SOTM!!!




~Congratulations to KiNA for winning the May Contest!~

The theme chosen for June is - NonHuman.
What is that? See here for details.





About the SOTM:
The Signature Of The Month contest is open to all members of the Animesuki Forums. The goal of the contest is to provide a fun and competitive way of showing off and improving the signatures and personal skills of contestants. The winner of each months contest is given the privilege of choosing the theme for the next month.

The contest begins on the first of each month and consists of roughly two weeks of entry creation/submission, one week of voting, and one week off. The entry and voting periods may be extended or shortened slightly as needed.



About the SOTM Theme:
Each month prospective contestants are given a theme to base their entries on. This theme is decided by the winner of the previous contest. The theme can be anything, as long as it does not break forum rules regarding inappropriate material. At the end of the month, voters choose which entries they liked best out of all submitted entries and a new winner is decided. Themes cannot be used twice in a row.



The Rules of the SOTM:

1. Contestants are allowed to create, work on, and submit their entry from the start of the contest until two weeks from the start date. This period of time is specified by the organizer every month. Once the entry period expires, all submitted entries are gathered up and sent to the Voting Thread.

2. Contestants must submit original works. This means you cannot simply cut a picture out, slap your name on it, and call it your own. Claiming someone else's work as your own is also not allowed. Anyone caught doing this will have their entries removed from the contest.

To further expand on this rule:
2A. Unless proven otherwise, all entries made by contestants are derivatives of works made by someone else. Thus, no claim of "ownership" shall be made in reference to the image(s) used in the signature entry.

2B. Misrepresenting someone else's signature work for your own is prohibited and will result in an immediate expulsion of the entry and disqualify the contestant from the current month's contest.

2C. In the spirit of originality, "crop" sigs are frowned upon, but not discouraged; however, the contest organizer can call upon all contestants to show the source of their entry(ies) at any time.

2D. Also in the spirit of originality, new signatures are encouraged. However, if you feel one of your older signatures is perfect for the theme and wish to enter it, you may. Just remember that the signature still has to follow the rules stated above.
3. Contestants are allowed to create as many entries as they wish, but are only allowed to enter one. To submit an entry officially, the contestant must mark the post in the Offical Entry Thread containing that entry with the words "Final Entry", or they can submit the signature to the contest organizer using the private message function.

4. Contestants who wish to keep their entries private until after the submission period can private message the contest organizer with their entry. The entry will not be displayed until submissions are closed, unless the contestant displays that entry publicly.

5. Entries must comply with Animesuki rules regarding signature size. This means each entry can be no larger than 500 x 160, and must be less than 50,000 bytes. They must also comply with forum decency rules. If you think your entry will be offensive or reported to the moderators, don't post it, even as a joke.



About the SOTM Entry Process:

Every month, a new entry thread is created. Each month's entry thread is a central spot meant to give contestants a chance to create and improve their entries as well as their skills, in addition to providing them a place to post their official submissions.
The thread is solely about helping contestants with entries, and as such these things will not be tolerated:
1. Nonconstructive and negative criticism (if you truly dislike something about an entry, be polite and helpful)

2. Comments, questions, or complaints about General SOTM affairs

3. Flaming, trolling, and other uncivil behavior that breaks Forum Rules
Anyone disrupting the thread will be asked to take it privately, to the SOTM Generic Discussion Thread, or if the offense is severe enough - reported to the moderators.




This Month's Entry Period::

This months entry period officially starts Sunday, June 1st, 2008 and lasts until Friday, June 20th, 2008. Entries will be gathered and put up for voting on Sunday, June 22nd, 2008. Voting will end on the following Sunday.

The due date ends at 11:59 (midnight basically) UTC/GMT. The polling will be up one day later after 11:59 (again, midnight). I will try to be as lenient as I can with last minute submissions but only slightly.

It is up to you as a contestant to know what your time zone is in relation to UTC/GMT. I cannot do this for you.

Here is a site that can help you figure that out: http://www.worldtimeserver.com/convert_time_in_UTC.aspx




Good luck to all contestants, and most importantly, have fun!!!

I'll echo what KiNa said on this - it CANNOT be a costume and it must be easy to tell that it is nonhuman. If I spot anything that doesn't follow that I will ask for sources or tell the contestant to find something else. KiNa has the option to do this as well.

Skating by hoping people won't notice just because you really want to use the render isn't going to fly this month.

If you aren't sure, ask.

And the first out of my 80 warnings about this per month - if you do not tag your official entry with FINAL ENTRY, I will not put it up for vote. It's in the rules and I'm stating it right at the beginning of the contest so that people can't claim they didn't see it.

Reposting this.. because somewhere, someone would say he didnt see the guidelines

Theme : NONHUMAN

Guidelines :
  • Anything that is nonhuman based is accepted. These include Angel, Demons, Monsters, Mecha, Vehicles, Animals .. practically anything that is not a human.
  • Cosplaying human character dont count. so, bunny Kallen is not accepted. Nor do we accept neko Feito
  • Nonhuman trait MUST BE visible in the signature. If your signature requires knowledge of the character used.. its not accepted.
    Ask yourself this question when selecting your render
    Quote:
    Which part can I point to prove this render is nonhuman?
    .. ACCEPTED ANSWERS .. "Thats her fish tail.. she's a mermaid" -OR- "Thats her fangs .. She's a vampire" .. then that render is usable..
    BUT
    .. REJECTED ANSWERS "thats San Seto" -OR- "thats Arcuied" .. then I suggest you find a different render .. because you depend on the knowledge of someone to know the character.
  • The theme is nonhuman, so please make the nonhuman attribute as the main focus. Having a human girl with a pet then focusing on the girl is out of theme. So is having Kira sitting on SFreedom's shoulder .. with only SF shoulder seen in the signature.
  • Do stick to anime based render please. As much as your pet is adorable to you, its not an anime character ._.

Its a very simple theme.. and this should allow mechas signatures (Gundam, Gurren, Knightmares) to be use alongside Grimmjaws and Ulqi and Viral. It should now left to how leet can you get your signatures to be as its practically freestyle.

In case of Arrancars, make sure their mask is visible.. in case of Rozen's doll, make sure those dolljoints are visible (in case of suigintou, her wings would suffice). Viral need to show you his fangs and claws

That's all I read, and KiNa if you weren't a guy I would love you for this theme.
Finally I could do a MECHA SIGS for SOTM!

Would Aya work? She is a Tengu not a human. Umm there is also Yukari, she is a yōkai. Well actually there are many yōkai. Another one is Haruhi, she is GOD afterall.

Spoiler for side note:
That is why I said specifically you need to make their nonhuman trait visibles in the signature. I know what/who Arc is, and my example exactly listed why some of her renders can be accepted and some are not.

I gave ample examples as well.. I dont want peoples needing the knowledge of the character.. The whole set of character in Haruhi would viable for the theme, but can you show that in signature that they arent human?

Which part of this did you NOT understand?

Well my message got deleted for replying "yes I understand" and explaining "why I misunderstood". I guess letting you know I got the rules was more pointless than happy birthday then yea, I admit my loses in opinions. Anyways have fun.

^ I'm not exactly sure how saying "Yeah I didn't bother" and sprouting lines about how you are inconsiderate about X things because of your sleep management are anything meaningful.
If anything, you are not oblidged to answer all the time, especially with your usual off topic fashion borderline Anon-like. No answer or PM are useful for that matter.

But good thing you pointed about the HB post, this one is removed as well.
