It's not solely my decision. If it was I wouldn't be asking people what they think, I'd just go ahead and do whatever I wanted.

I'd rather not. Reason:

Although, I do think we need a showcase of winning signatures. Cicido posted one a few pages back but it's a little out of date now.


Anyway, there's a lot of interest in a banner contest I see...so far it seems to be the most popular idea. Would like to hear more suggestions, comments, ideas, etc., before proposing something more official.

The number four gave me a interesting idea, we could have members making team lets say four or three. And there lets say there are 5 teams, each member in the team will have different theme and the people with the same theme will compete against each other. So there will be four theme if there is 4 members. And we could have point system, lets say the team 1 got 5 vote for the first theme, 4 vote for second theme, 6 for the third theme, and 7 for the fourth theme. So in total they have 22points and the team with the most point win.
This will be difficult and annoying to carry out, not only that there will be few problems such as one member fail to make a sig. But I think this might be fun if we could do it.

Oh god... Solace is gonna have a fun time organizing that >.<

But a dual theme sounds fun. Though I think of a dual theme in one image is much more interesting than 2 theme, 2 images. The combination and creative way the person intergrate them would be more interesting to me.

Indeed. An interesting idea, but sounds like a nightmare to pull off properly.

Also an interesting idea. Maybe have the November winner pick one part of the theme, and then make a poll of all the themes we've had this year and let the community pick the second theme to go with it?

Here's an idea.
No filesize limit and you could pick one of the previous themes. I'm guessing I'm not the only one who got a few bald spots during the past months, fighting with the filesize and there are a a couple of themes I'd like to revisit. Submitting a previous entry wouldn't be allowed.

Could not agree more.

I am under the impression that the mods would prefer a set of banners that could be used for a longer period of time (wich was also mentioned a page ago)

Of course, that's just what I think.

I am also a bit dissapointed that the mods didn't switch to the already existing hallowen set. I mean, it's halloween, so why not use it.

I believe that's only the case based on observation of the push behind the last banner theme, which was to replace the winter contest banners we had previously (something about it being nice out, so why have snow).

Personally I'd like to do another banner contest if for nothing but the sake of refreshing the forums and because people just like to do them because they're fun.

Here's what we have so far:
  1. A banner contest
  2. A "no limits" SOTM. Relax the limits on the size and dimensions of the entries but with the condition that the entries could not be used as forum signatures. Possibilities for theme include "no theme", "previous SOTM theme", or "dual theme in one signature"
  3. a wallpaper contest

Personally I like option 2 a lot because there is so much you can do with it. No theme sounds cool actually. Let's see what people will come up with. but I was hoping for Battle of the Sigs!

I would second that if it weren't for the fact that a relaxation of the size limit would make the signatures unusable here. Other rule changes would work, such as no theme, but then would the scope of choice actually make the contest less interesting? I believe too much choice/freedom in this context could be detrimental to creativity. No problem with a banner or wall paper contest, per se, but it would be nice if there were more of a twist to it. Banners would need a degree of staff approval to be installed up top. As an aside, I would really like to see if Kairin could be woven into the mix Though that may be wishful thinking on my part

We could have a "Where's Kairin?" theme for December...

The contest would be to see who can hide Kairin somewhere in their no theme sig the best (file size and limit tbd).

I almost started a thread about this a week ago..................almost.

I'll keep it in mind comes next year.

Oh and the banner contest is the only competition I would feel like joining; So here's hoping for that idea to make it through.

I thought about it but I liked our summer banners so I didn't even mention it.

A ''no theme'' theme could make the voting more difficult. Evaluating a sing with at least one thing in common is already difficult. Choosing betweem unrelated sing would be more. Can we really compare a NSFW sign with a landscape sign ?

Sure, you can always compare it's composition/layout/choice of colors/text treatment/production quality (just to name a few) but it'll mostly come down to your overall feel of it.

Only two choices this time. Sorry to say this but this time the quality is really low :<

I guess it's the theme's fault tho...
Let's hope for a better February.

Short critics to the entries, beware tho, it might not be something you'd like to hear.



9. CrowKenobi - Ugly font, ugly spaceship (yarly xD) idk the popout is weird and the quality is suffering because of it.

I have to respond to this:

The popout may look weird to you, but when I first experimented with it, I found it to be the most aesthetically pleasing (to me) version of the sigs I was working on. And could you define what do you mean by "quality?"

Calling the Starship Enterprise ugly?! Some people would consider them fightin' words!
