Yeah, the number of entries should be optional by all means. Even 3 banners can be a lot for certain people.

Well, most of our past banner contests were held under a seasonal theme, e.g. autumn or winter. Wouldn't it be much more interesting to go for something fresh and innovative this time round? Perhaps where the dilemma lies is a theme that isn't too narrow or restrictive, but neither too broad or generic.

How could I have missed this? >_<

I remembered the winter one, but the autumn competition totally went below my radar; I mean heck, some of those themes have actually been held twice already.

Just throwing some random theme ideas out in the open.
  • travel/journey/adventure
  • community (can include friendship and networking that were previously suggested)
  • youth (could fall under time too i guess)
  • love (well it is called animesuki isn't it? lol =P)
  • sport/competition
  • passion/fighting spirit
  • animals
  • nature
  • cityscape
  • time (broad theme, can include past, present and future among others)
  • ocean/sea
  • water
  • emotion
  • music
  • sleep/rest/exhausation
  • villains/heroes
  • school
  • uniform
  • comfort/home/warmth

I also really liked the space suggestion that was mentioned earlier too

SOTM themes are intentionally specific. The rules used in that contest aren't going to see much influence here. This contest will be run like our previous banner contests. If someone wants to modify one of the SOTM themes into something more general and offer that as a suggestion I'd be happy to hear it, but we are not rehashing those exact themes in this contest.

We could just create a multi-choise public poll thread and decide like that, we have enough options to choose from.

We could have "cute anything" or just call it "moe" (j/k)

True, but as many of you already know, I'm one in that small community who is always trying to have "guys" on my banners, as the amount of "girls" banners is generally overwhelming...oh well it has always been difficult anyway...

Even when I hear "moe" I think of a cute girl xD

Guys, Girls. I don't care, you can find good images for both but girl usually... have more images to choose from.

I'd like to stick with the Autumn or Winter theme, it is both simplistic but also vague and each user can express what they think the theme is.

But as previously stated it'll be strange to have those themes up all year long when it's already spring and summer. I'm not saying that it will bother me, but it may bother some *shrug*

I'm liking the "classical elements" theme Cats mentioned, it would be neat seeing which one wins (a fire theme winning would have an almost shocking contrast to the serene sky theme we have now).

The two that stick out the most to me are the basic elements one (Avatar: The last Airbender ftw?) and the Night/Space theme. I'm leaning towards Night/Space though.

If we do happen to go with one of the elements I'd think metal would be quite interesting, gradient wise anyway... or would that make the forums too bland with all the gray that it has already?

You will need something very generic then. An example that is pretty much fitting of all seasons, would be something like Music >.<

Dreams.

Generic theme but hard enough to implement.

We've got a nice assortment of themes to work with. Wouldn't mind seeing more (there's always room for more suggestions), but we do need some gradients to go with them. Between the two we can narrow something down.

I actually wouldn't mind going with the current one. I quite like it.

So who's responsible to do the gradient ?.. Altho, getting a theme first would help with the gradient selection ..

OTOH the reverse can be true too @.@

I think Solace is suggesting the community contribute suggestions or examples.
