New Challenge Yourself?

Postby Vegedus » Sun Mar 13, 2011 5:39 am

Okay, fuck it. I'll judge a new Challenge Yourself. Rival is willing to help with stickying stuff. I didn't want to judge, because I really wanted to enter myself, but I guess I can make it a goal to always submit an exhibition piece myself. I have a decent amount of free time, experience with judging, and is actually active on snafu in general, so I should be able to do it.

What say you? Are you up for one more try, with me as judge? I promise you, if I abandon this as people have in the past, you're invited to travel to Denmark and beat the shit out of me. Or, more realistically, you can contact Mathias or any of the other people who know me on Facebook and get them to harass me. I cannot promise I'll always be max timely, but I will not go quietly into the night!

If there's agreement on this, the rest of this thread is dedicated to see if we need to change some rules (here's the last thread for reference) and figuring out what the theme for the first contest should be.

Technically, I didn't need this thread stickied, it's just for discussion and upstarting, but I guess I can edit it into being the next CY :P.

BTW, how does people feel about time being 2 weeks, minus a weekend? Last time, I kinda felt I could use a weekend more.

Nope, but oh well he didn't think of stickying this one, so all is clear. I'm not one to complain about less work. :P

I dont see why this shouldnt be converted into the new CY thread... As for the time, I think 2 weeks is 2 weeks, weekends included
So lets say the new challenge starts tomorrow (14th), then you'd have to enter your finished submission on the 28th? Or would the 25th be better?

Counting weekends sounds good.
Gives us time to do a final check.
Now all we need to do is decide the theme.

And spend a week on judging, theme suggesting and voting?

It seemed like a long time to begin with, but a week for the artists too cool down and me to judge probably isn't too bad.

I'm hoping more people will pitch in. Not much point to the contest if only Morpheus and Asmodai are interested.

D:< I would be interested. But drawing isn't part of my art-type. Vegedus, you wouldn't by chance have an account with deviantART would you? If so some of the people from here have a group, maybe you can direct them to this thread?

Honestly, I forget what thing you do.

And yeah, I think I'm a member of that group, I could try asking around.

Well.. I don't draw. Actually for a very long time I couldn't do much but write, until I got Gimp and started experimenting with photomanipulation type artwork. <_<

I'm told you guys need a judge for this. I'm willing to temporarily throw my hat in for that. However, I will not be available for judging until at least the 21st of March.

Yell at me and let me know.

I'm sure he's willing to have another or even step down if a mod is willing to take over.
He's doing it reluctantly, I understand it.

If he judges, then he can't participate. I'm offering to judge in the case that he still wants to actually be a contestant.

Let me be clear and state that I'm not here to usurp anything. I just want to do my modly duty and be helpful, is all.

In that case I understand.
Now we can have at least 3 contestants.

Interesting. As I said, I'd rather enter than judge, so yeah, it'd be nice if you judged, Hana.

PROVIDED, you don't disappear into thin air as the others. I'm so paranoid about it, that I feel myself is the only one I can trust >.<.

We could do it like this: If Hana, or any other judge there might be, disappears or lacks the time, I'll disqualify myself and judge instead. A back-up judge, essentially. To keep the judging expedient, it's ideal that there's only one judge at a time, but having two in total to pick up each other slack could work. We could even pass the mantle back and forth depending on how interested we are in entering a given week. Sounds good? I don't really expect you to be able to have the time consistently with the kid and all that, and I don't want it to be a chore for you either.

Also, I'm still not quite sure when we'll start. We're kinda in need of more people and more themes, so I figure we let it fester some more days, and then we'll start regardless and see if more people join once we're up and running.

That sounds like a great solution to me, Vegedus. Count me on board.
