Signature Competition Ideas, Suggestions, and Discussion

Postby HollyFlower91 » Thu Apr 08, 2010 9:43 pm

so if it's okay with the admins and stuff, and you guys, I'd like to start a themed, time limited, size restricted signature competition.
an example of a competition would be like, from today, till the 15th, we'd have to make a Love Hina sig, 320x120 in size. then when the 15th would come, we'd post them in the special thread we'd have only for submissions, and then whoever submitted a sig for the comp, would be able to vote but not for themselves obviously. whoever gets the most votes wins, if there's a tie, well, we can discuss that.. so guys? what do ya think?

if we decide to go with it, we'd have to agree on a theme, desired size, and time limit.. lets get crakin. :twisted:

Interesting idea. If your aim is to make a collection of signatures that other members here can use I'd propose making the dimensions comply with the sig rules (600x80 or less)

I am for this, though I'd be for no given size (ofc capped by 600x80) and no special thread for it - one is enough, IMO.

now you changed everything for me.. *devastated*

well giving only 80 pixels in height really weighs the creativity level down imo.. I mean, how much can you do with 80 pixels in height, y'know?

but if it comes down to it, you could make 2 proper sized sigs, stack them and make them match to look like one sig.. :?:

that would be breaking the forum rules though
total sig size is limited to 600x80 (or 4 lines of normal text)

which means your sig is breaking the rules, being 80px + 1 line of text. I'm not gonna do anything about that though

I usually work with 300x40, as you can see.

After all, it's just another (minor) challenge :>

and honestly? we don't have to USE the sigs, we're making them to show, that's about it..

You only have to follow those rules if you want them to be used here.
I just think that you'd get more participation from here if the sigs could be used here is all

an admin giving a user the choice of RULE MAKING?! :awesome:

but seriously, you're the admin, I guess you know the users better here, I'm kinda leading toward more people participating rather then only me you and Nyachan participating and making huge sigs that can't even be used.

I thought anime fans were crazy for sig making? :[ wha happen?

eh, it's a different community, which going from this thread is mainly the college & beyond crowd.

Maybe sig making is more the Middle school / High school crowd's thing?

it's just shocking cause I used to be apart of a huge gaming community, and there were tons of die-hard anime lovers there, so much they had to make their own legion/club type thingy, I was apart of it, and they would hold like so many sig and avy and wallpaper contests.. what is it about gamers that makes them more interested in graphic making then it does anime lovers? maybe cause gamers are more hands on?

after all you use your eyes to watch anime, not your hands.. oh wait a minute.. :sweat: lol

but I dont think it has anything to do with age, i mean if you're still makin amv's after all those years, you could still game, and design and stuff..

I think it does - the older people make siggies and avas usually for themselves only :<

sun of a gun.
now I'm loosing faith in this.
maybe we should just make an art thread and post what you'd like there, if it floats, we could do a contest.. but you guys said yall already had a thread like that and it sank.. by the looks of this thread, i think itll just sink again.. :(

I would be just for just making some signatures on request or dropping in some random stuff we make.

Contests would be fine too, though :<
