PostSubject: SoTW Theme Suggestion   Mon Oct 01, 2012 1:19 am

well, i think three times in a row freestyle theme has became a mundane things, so to be honest, i expect something different for the next one and afterwards.

basically, i suggest that the previous SoTW winner would have a privileges to decide the next SoTW theme. if there are more than one winner than they may discuss to decide.

discovering and doing something something new would make things much better i thought.
that's all.

thanks in advance...

yeah, always freestyle can be a bit boring, then again, with themes the problem becomes, that those that are busy irl cannot enter alot of times, due to having something they made in a rush, not thinking about a possible theme while making it.....

I for instance at times wil probably be to busy to realy think of a theme and go with what I got.....

But themes I hope wont be a bad thing, in most sites I was on any theme always had less entries then freestyle... mostly due to people not knowing what to do with the themes...

I would suggest to stay clear from abstract themes like Ocean for instance... ^^

ah well, actually i'm not asking permission for my ideas.
this means that SoTW winner this week would be granted permission to set the theme or some tag rules (set tag size, fix render or else).

so i'd like to see an addition to rules about the SoTW winner privileges for deciding next SoTW theme and some tag rules.

yeah, this may sound difficult to some new-learners, but having them doing something new and encouraging them to join would mean a lot of improvement for them.

since the theme could be straight into a quite hard one, i'd suggest to make a discussion thread but only for a day. other members are free to give or complaint some ideas (solving problem about the busy-ness of the winner) and let the winner give or choose the theme as well.

honestly, i'd get a headache doing an abstract LOL.

PostSubject: Re: SoTW Theme Suggestion   Mon Oct 01, 2012 3:46 pm

I think something like having a SotW winner decide could be a nice idea....

I would suggest to do it like this though:

3 SotW win for a member gives them rights to put in a SotW idea... and every 3 wins gives them another chance to do this, they do not have to do the theme right when they win the 3 sotw....
They just need to have 3, and then can send the theme they are thinking off to the admins, if the theme is to broad or to narrow then there can be edits on their idea... discussion with the admins would be a good idea here....

Because it would have to be a theme that is manage-able for the Staff as wel as those that wish to enter.... if your theme is way to narrow there wil be problems for people that dont get the theme or dont know what the theme stands for... or the issue can arrise that they cannot find a resource to match the theme.....

Having it to wide on the other hand can lead to other problems, being that the staff cannot realy check if the entries are all in the theme that is suggested or not...

Lets say you do a theme: Capcom - this theme might seem like a good idea, but then everyone would have to know the games and other products made by Capcom, if this is to hard to keep track off, then narrowing it down might be a good idea... lets say instead of Capcom you choose: Street Fighter....

Hope others get what I am trying to say here, and that it makes sense to others, also hope the idea/suggestion might be a good one...
(have this SotW win thing on an anime site I am a member on, so kinda stole the idea from them... but think that might be a good idea... 2 wins might be to fast, and 4 or more might take to long for anyone to get to choose a theme, so I think 3 wins should be alright....)

Let me know what your thoughts are... I for one think this might be something nice to add... giving more variety and also giving more insent to try and win a SotW...
(cause having your theme being used might be something people would like... next to the trophy/medal or what you wanna call that...)

ah, i see what Cly tried to say, and alas, i forgot something too.

in another places, there's this winner rule, but this also means that the winner is prohibited from entering SoTW competition which theme he decided by himself.
if the winner give a theme that is his forte and is quite difficult for other members, it will be unfair, right?

that's why,

okay, to make this clear let's put all the points of what we're discussing about altogether:

- SoTW winner not only will have privileges to decide next SoTW theme & tag rules, but also will be prohibited to enter SoTW which theme he decided himself.

Quote :
this is all about giving more chance to other member. let's say that the winner is really pro, and it's hard to win over him. the chosen theme must not be picked until 3 events of SoTW


- a discussion thread should be made in one day after winner announcement to make an agreement between the winner, admin and other members.

Quote :

discussion with the admins would be a good idea here....

Because it would have to be a theme that is manage-able for the Staff as wel as those that wish to enter.... if your theme is way to narrow there wil be problems for people that dont get the theme or dont know what the theme stands for... or the issue can arrise that they cannot find a resource to match the theme.....

this is all about giving and feedback.
i think this is still manageable too.

hmm, is the content of the post above hard to understand or something?

if it's too much, why no one complaint about it?
i mean, i expected a response from the staffs about this matter, because here i thought this rule will be applied.
wouldn't it better if the staffs make this matter clear, by either rejecting this idea or accept this.
actually, i can't see mutual understanding developed here.

this is rather discouraging me.
well yeah, whatever... Rolling Eyes

Oh the Theme suggestion is already being implemented... I already even added it to the previous sotw rulings as the New Rules.... I already got Vampi's approval... ^^

The theme would be suggested by the winner, the winner only get 24hours to give his/her suggestion, if no suggestion is given within this time a theme wil be decided upon by the Staff of the site....

Hope this is enough information, if more is needed... then dont hesitate to ask about it... Wink
