The <off topic> thread


Recommended Posts

I know that there has been a certain amount of resistance about all the new contests but I think the one I'm about to propose is different enough to warrant a certain amount of consideration.

The Idea

A collaboration contest, it would take a bit of organising to get groups but I feel it would be worth it. Different groups after every 2 or 3 contests would give people a chance to work with more people but save the extra hassle of organising groups during / after every contest.

The groups (2 - 4 people) would have to create an image that follows a theme, if they want to meet up to do this they can but it's not mandatory & they can send .PDN files back & forth as they wish.

At the moment this is a very sketchy idea so any thoughts or improvements would be appreciated.

So, what do people think?

Son, someday you will make a girl happy for a short period of time. Then she'll leave you & be with men that are ten times

better than you can imagine. These men are called musicians. :D

That contest, I don't like it very much.

I am a big fan of this competition. I am just not sure if it would work on this forum. Perhaps host it on a different site with IRC clients and all?

i actually like this idea it means that each piece a few people have contributed to which uses each of the people skills which would be awsome :D

@ SaBrown, All the contests on here involve the individual making something, a group making something would make things interesting as you could use your team members strong points, to create the parts of the image that they would be good at (borders or whatever).

It's just an idea at the moment, if everyone hates it then it won't happen, simple as that.

@ Mike, people would need to exchange email addresses / IM details so that they could discuss what they wanted to do.

I think a seperate forum would be extremely helpful.

This is what I am thinking:

Create a new forum with a thread for finding a team. Once a team of four or five is created, a new subforum is created for only those members to use. Also, I think these need to be extremly big projects. Like the MSC Operating System with multiple screenshots and all.

All the groups would be public (everyone would know who was with who) & as I stated above, people would have to share contact details (IM or Email) or they can just PM each other. I don't see the need for a new forum, the mods don't need any more work, two threads will be more than sufficient (one for entries & one for discussion & finding team mates). I already run a forum & don't want another one on my hands & I'm sure that Rick, BoltBait, Dan, Ash & David don't want another forum on here to read through.

Yeah, and a new rank could be created for each team so that only that team could access the subforum! I love this idea!

Oh and Matt, I could host the forum for you.

I am talking about a completely seperate forum on a seperate server. I was also talking about discussion threads for simply the members, not about keeping the details of each group private. If you attempt to keep this closed to PMs and Emails, I dont think this competition will be a success.

I never intended this to go outside the Paint.NET forum, if this is gonna go crazy with a new forum then the likelihood is that I won't bother signing up to the forum to participate. If this is well organised on here it will work, another forum for one contest is overkill if you ask me.
