I agree with bigyellowlegoman. Although to be fair any new people should forfeit the right to the prize, or like 5te said hang on to the money to make sure they stay awhile.

Ummhmm I am utterly suprised that you hold such a view since you have so little posts.

In my opinion, it would be be harshly unfair to disqualify Blond, or anyone with less than 5 posts who enters.

Why? Because the rules were much too unclear.
From the rules:
Quote:
We have the right to disqualify anyone that we think might have joined polykarbonbbs.com soley for winning the prize.
What's unclear about that? We haven't actually made a final decision yet, but I don't think it's really hard to understand what we're getting at. We'll probably vote on it in the mod lounge at some point once we get closer to end of the contest.

I just think that there should be set rules such as having at least 50 posts or whatever...instead of having to decide whether to disqualify a guy with 1 post who joined before the competition...(thats jus an example)

It was only a suggestion, whatever you guys think is easiest is fine by me

I guess she didn't understand me the first time via IM. I'll try to be very clear this time since I didn't do a good job explaining it in my last post here.

Baka said that Blond was working on something for the contest. I told her that I didn't know if we could count it because Blond had not posted here once yet, BUT, I said something like, "He still needs to post it because I can't wait to see it..." I meant the finish art section at least. I never once said you could enter the contest. That's the misunderstanding. Things like that happen so I don't want to make a big deal about it.

Like DN said, we still haven't made up our minds on what to do. It'll be a group decision that we feel will be fair for everyone. Again, it's nothing personal.

As far as the rules go, I remember adding this rule a couple of contests ago when this came up. I have no idea what happen to it. I'm to blame for it being omitted since I'm the one that has been writting and editting the rules. But it will be clear for the next contest.

Bleh, I wouldn't care at all if I lost to a 1 post entry. I pretty much did mine just for fun not prizes though. Oh, I do have to admit bias since I think Blond's entry is funny. =/

Doesn't there need to be 20 submissions for the "money" prizes anyway? It'd be pretty ironic to wind up disqualifing Fishnaut and wind up with 19 submission haha. Fishnaut would totally deserve to win a Torment contest then >.< *shakes fist at Fishnaut!*

That's why I entered it, to help make sure there were 20 entries so Baka could take your money

Is that 20 pictures or 20 members? What I mean is will multiple submissions from one member push the submissions up? Because I can imagine that being a dangerous loophole if it's submissions rather than members.

Yea, I'm guessing a bandwidth issue or something. Too many residual hotlinks. Excessive UDP packet burnouts and I think my data link layer ran out of TCP.

(I don't know dick about networking).

I think I'd only be really upset about losing to a brand new board member if it was some refined professional who would completely destroy all of us.

So I'm alright with the entries posted so far as counting for the actual prizes (no offense to Blond, I'm not trying to say I don't like your entry, because it looks great).

I don't know if the mods even care too much what we think, but if the back and forth in the "mod lounge" is close, maybe our opinions here can help make a decision.
