No, if he has an entry in the competition he can also vote.

If so, then this is not the place to post it. You are also waaaaay above the allowed limits for sigs here.

^Huh ?

All you have to do is post it in the right thread, and reduce the file size to 50kb or under.

Well now he did save it as jpeg, but for some reason also made it smaller and posted it on the right thread... Now the question is, how does that actually even fit the current theme for this month ?

Can I authorize someone else to cast my votes for SOTM for me? I intend to take a two-week hiatus as of today/tomorrow, but would like to vote...could I have someone do that for me?

Send your votes to Marina (and make sure you are specific in who you are voting for) before you go.

I am new and am planning to enter the Nov'10 contest, and I have some Q's.

- Must our entries be saved in JPEG format only?
- Who is the contest organiser, who I must PM my entry to? (Solace?)
- Are text allowed in our entries?

Thanks a lot. BTW, 50,000 bytes is kinda restrictive >.<

No. GIF, PNG, PNG-8, or some other image format is fine too.

So, Felix beat me to answering the question first, but I'll attempt to be a bit more specific because I'm a nice guy like that...

First question, no, you do not need to save in JPEG format. You can save in .PNG, .JPEG, or .GIF. However, due to the size limits, people often choose using JPEG or GIF, and that's just the common trend among us.

Second question, Solace is in charge of the monthly contests, however entries do not require a PM. After the votes have been cast for a month, a winner declared, and a theme chosen, a new thread will appear in the Fan Creations area, labled "SOTM (insert year, month, and theme here) - Entry Thread." There, all submissions are posted by the creators. It's often useful to try and post yours early, as people will usually offer constructive criticism on ways to improve before the deadline.

Third question... depends on what you mean by that. If the actual signature image itself has text in it, that's okay. If you have text outside of the signature, like a typed quote right below the image, that's not allowed. But text in the actual signature's graphic itself is okay.

I hope this answered your questions. Also, 50,000 bytes might sound restrictive, but that's simply the rules put that were put down for all signature-making in general. All signatures, contest or otherwise, must be under 50,000 bytes as per Animesuki regulations. Besides, for the sake of competition, just think of it as... a bit of a challenge...

For more information on what to expect for your entry next month, try looking at this month's past entry thread here.

Keep in mind that some hosting sites (i.e: Photobucket) will actually increase the size of a file. Always double check your entries after posting them.

I'd like to express my concern over a growing trend in the contest that's bothering me: allowing sigs to be entered past the entry deadline. I feel that allowing a sig to be entered past the stated deadline isn't fair to those people who entered their sigs on time. It may be that some of those who entered on time would have liked the extra hours to make final tweaks that the late-comers got simply by not entering when they should have.

Noted. I've been including some of the last minutes because they were pretty close to the deadline anyway, however last months had a few entries that were submitted the next day. I included them out of kindness, but that won't be the case in the future.

Question!!

I have posted my final entry on the SOTM Nov'10 Entry Thread. But, now I am having second thoughts of doing some touch-ups on my entry? Am I allowed to do so and edit my final entry post?

Yep.... just edit your post and remove the final entry or replace it later with your final one...

There's no problem if you haven't past the deadline I think
