Official SOTW Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Quite simply, discussion isn't allowed through the announcement/voting thread, therefor you may use this thread for all of your conversing. However, even though it's encouraged that you post whatever concerns or comments you conjure, remember that spam and side conversations are unnecessary, keep the focus geared toward the SOTW.

Yeah i just locked it to prevent anyone from posting, it will be re-opened tomorrow night for voting.

 

Speaking of which you all have relatively 24 hours to get your submit your entries, so far I haven't received many.

For those who have yet to be informed, you now have until Saturday night to get your submissions in, since I can't start the voting right now because I won't be here for the majority of today and tomorrow morning, take this time to submit something if you have not already done so.

I honestly just through a render over some textures and did a lot of colouring XD not proud of meself.

Btw, there's a guy that just voted in the polls. Clarify that he needs to give a reason.

Hmmm, that should probably be at the top of the thread.

 

And, um, someone should contact people who haven't reasoned. Probably.

Brief explanation on how voting works:

 

Vote on whichever tag you like, for whatever reason you like. Comments aren't necessary, but preferred.

In the past we've had far too many stalemates simply because what would happen is the only people who are eligible to vote are those who are artists themselves, and more often than not, they are already in the competition.

 

What I still need to decide upon is how the victor will be decided, first to 5 or will we close the voting at a particular time and then decide the winner depending on who has the most votes.

I prefer the latter, but how long should we allow for voting, we can close it tonight or sometime tomorrow.

 

Also, I'm extremely satisfied the turn out, and the quality like Rai said is pretty substantial. I don't think I've ever seen an SOTW in which the votes are all across the board, It's definitely going to be close one.

The best part is that the quality will only improve from here, I'm already anxious for the next one.

Should we encourage people from the rest of YCM to vote? I mean, I doubt the votes are actually accurate, but I'm sure someone can go: "Oh, that looks so professional and nice."

Just wanted to post say how impressed I am with the SOTW. I mean, it's only the first one and the turnout was so quality, yo. There were more entrants than I thought there'd be and everybody's pieces are so nice. I'm not going to vote, but if I did, it'd be number 2.

 

Thanks for doing this, 'Night. Can't wait for #2, yo.

We still have yet to decide, how will we decide the theme of this week and the weeks to come?

 

Either:

 

A. The winner of the last SOTW decides the theme for the next.

 

B. We decide using a poll that is changed weekly.

 

C. A possible combination of both, that or something entirely different if you're able to pitch something better.

I still suggest last place gets to decide. I'm not sure if anyone would consider that degrading, but allowing the last place finisher to pick a theme would make them possibly more apt to place higher in the next competition, giving the field, what I would think, a fairer edge. Hypothetically, if a winner picks the theme, they'd pick one they're comfortable with, giving them a hypothetical advantage.

I can see the logic in that, however since we seem to constantly have differing views on this topic, for now I'll just instate the poll.

Hopefully by next week we'll have something decided.

I've gotten really busy as of late, however I should have the entirety of thanksgiving free, so I'll take that time to organize everything in regards to showcase.

Well, I was worried I'd have to make a turkey-related tag. ohdear.

 

This should be fun, and gives me a chance to start randomly gyfting people.
