I just missed asking a question before thee voting thread closed. For the silhouette theme, would that mean that ppl can submit entries similar to ipod ads?

I'm personally a bit unsure on that. Trouble is, in Frailty's theme post, he says that the silhouette is caused by the background's backlight. Therefore, the iPod ads silhouettes don't really fit, as they have just a plain background.

I think we need a little more specification from Frailty, but he said he's going to be afk for a little while due to exams.

I got idea for this from someone's (can't remember from who) post in the fanfiction thread in forum feedback. Is it possible that the winner of month contest gets to to have something under the user name or avatar? Something like 'SOTM winner' but in color and all that. Of course the winner will not get any special forum powers from this. And he will need to pass the tittle on the next winner. Something like this would be very good in my opinion

Seems like unnecessary bragging rights to me. No offense meant, I know that wasn't your intention, but I see no benefit from such a thing.

Then what benefit do you see from the titles like '' Graphic Designer '' ... '' Artist '' .. or even a '' Fansubber '' ?

I don't really see any benefit in them either. Though I do agree, the SOTM Winner tag would pretty much be about bragging that you won it ..

It also means that someone would have to create a new tag every month, and I'm guessing that Solace and the other staff members have enough on their plates as it is.

The majority of members enter the contest to better their skills rather than actually win, so a prize tag would be pointless.

It wouldn't be a tag, it would be a group (like Graphic Designer/Artist/Fansubber), while I've never been in a position to see the CP, I can't imagine maing such a group would take more than a couple of minutes, and it would only have to be made once, unless they decide to add month/year/theme, which would be unncecesary since all they need is 'SOTM Winner'. All the mods/admins would have to do is add the new winner to the group, and remove the previous winner, which also shouldn't take more than a couple of minutes.

This means that there will only be one member in the group at a time, and that the member will only be in this group for a month (unless they consecutively win). Worth it?

What's stopping contest winners having 'SOTM Winner' in their custom user titles? You don't even need to be in a group for that...

Anyone could also write "World boxing champion" does it have any value? Nope.

Personally I like the idea of just using signature addins better, for several reasons:
  • they are easy to make (usually the winning submission is used as a source)
  • Solace is already periodically making a banner; how hard can it be to crop a contest entry and add something like:
    "Some Theme" SotM July/2010 Winner
  • if you win the contest n times, you have then n of them; the thing is like your little medal which you can use when you wish - assuming Solace would make them just the right size
  • it works good as a prize for 2nd and 3rd place
The only problem is
  • the contest needs to be officially recognized (which I think it is already)
  • so that, fraud attempts can be removed by moderators

Why do we even need a custom group membership title for the SOTM winner? The winner can easily put that information into either their signature or their custom user title.

They want it to stand out a bit (for ex. bold, colored, italic) D: .. which is impossible for normal user, unlike me and my title, but that because I'm awesome, so mine are bold

Joking aside, I dont think it is that vital too much to have them, it added unnecessary workload for the mods (specifically Solace since he was he one most responsible for SotM)

I'll second this. I also think it would be detracting from why we have the contest too. Some members would then be entering the contest for the sole purpose of obtaining one of these 'signature adins'.

AS isn't a GFX community.

I don't know, it seem to be a rather hollow reason ...
but in another hand peoples act on worse reason everyday.

Anyway I am not even sure if the SOTM could be qualified as ''Official'' even now.

Think about it; there is a difference between being part of a larger group and being THE ONLY ONE. One says things about what you like (AniSuki member, graphic designer, fansubber) while the other just shows how much you value something that doesn't really have any worth...at least not here. It's not like SOTM is some world-class contest. Best kept simple and fun. No need to make it a pain to maintain for the organizers or a privilege for the contestants.

^as long as it doesn't remove the essence of the person/object being a silhouette then it's fine
and as long as that the silhouette is the focus of the sig

oh and I never knew you were also a forumer here

If you guys have a doubt about biased votes, then maybe the best option is to PM entries, so people don't know signature owners.

Just putting it out there, I myself dont mind public entries.

I've got a suggestion for the next SOTM Theme.

Easter - Easter is coming up.
Religion - There's something happening called "Lent", it's going on for 40 days until Easter, this is mainly for Catholics. But doesn't have to be Christianity, can be other Religions.
