Congratulations on the new competition :):

I just have two questions:

1- How about restricting the dimentions for posted images in this thread, but have an option to link to the larger (larger than 800X600) zise if available?

2- Is the voting based on someone's taste only, or there is some art criteria we need to follow?

Thanks.

As example, the latest two images of HyReZ and skullbonz, HyReZ's has nice flow but it is hurting my eyes but maybe not someone else's eyes, and skullbonz's texture is awesome and I really like to see more details in a larger size if available..!

So based on this, I think it is unfair to just don't give my vote to HyReZ because it isn't suit my taste.

Thanks.

Sort it out guys, there's anarchy here already. Is the competition between NN and chimay12345 over ?

I'm with you YM ... personal taste over pdn techniques ?

No, as far as I can gather (at the time of posting this) it is 2 points to me and 1 point to chimay, once again people don't read the rules or vote properly. It's just a free for all in this comp! Entrants barging in before a battle is over. :roll:

If you break the rules you should be suspended from entering the next battle ... that'll get people to be more careful :)

Alright, I'll suspend anyone who breaks the rules for 2 days, from now on.

Hopefully that'll fix all this madness. :P

To me the 1-0 scoring system is too brutal. Very harsh on the entrant who gets whipped 3-0 - their entry has merit too!

How about scoring each entry with 1-5 stars? The winner is the first to reach 20 stars :star: :star:

I think we should allow others some time to offer their thoughts. Glad you like the idea.

Yet more wise words from EER. A rating system does seem a lot fairer.

Eye candyness and PDN style/ techniques could be *starred accordingly ?

So now this comp has a scoring system AND a rating system?

But still the rule of - A battle is over when one of the competitors have reached three legal votes.

Confusion is bound to happen. :unimpressed:

Confusion isn't good ... it's all been running so smoothly

@ Odd Llama ... you're doing a great job. The teething problems will soon sort themselves out.

Bound to be messy. I think we should stick with one system. My preference (as above) is to score each entry on a 1-5 scale. Totaling the scores as the vote progresses.

"A battle is over when one competitor has reached 20 stars/points".

BTW: We can always demo a scoring system to see if it works.

I would prefer this method also a 1-5 scale is much better, the more complex the voting system, the more headaches will be caused by people not understanding how to vote in the correct way.

I see there is plenty of confusion on the new rating system and I can see why,points and a rating sysytem just seems a bit dumb. Surely it should just be the rating system out of 5 stars with each voter adding up the score as he or she goes.

ie. Voter one - I love image 1 and give it 4 stars

Not so keen on image 2 and give it 1 star

(No need to add who won as its obvious )

Voter 2 - Image 1 is fantastic I also give it 4 stars

I also quite like image 2 and give it 3 stars

Score so far Image 1 - 8 stars

Image 2 - 4 stars

(and so on until one voter gives enough stars to take the tally on one of the images to 20 at which point that image is declared the winner and a new battle can start )

Yeah, it should be easy to understand, so the newcomers won't get confused

I am afraid 20 stars will take forever to reach.

Just out of curiosity (and because the new scoring system allows for it...), what happens in the case of a tie?

 

after a minute of thought: maybe you could have a tiebreaker round using the old "best of 5" system (first to 3 votes wins)

How about a tie meaning just that, does there always have to be a winner ?
