post whatever you feel like in this thread, discuss the contest or whatever. Just make sure i can see which sig you are entering so i don't pick the wrong one if you post more then one.

And you can edit your sig and edit the post till the last day, so there's time to make changes ;)

:yuno:Cmon guys, how can you not enter when there's a chance of winning store credits? I didn't start this contest for people to just have a look and not enter!:nosm:

Store credits are not that big of a deal. I think more people will come in if it was a good video game or something more valuable

Pretty sure most people who do these contests care more about showing off their skills. The e-cash is just a bonus.

I'm here for the awesome pieces of art work, and to scope out who will do my sig which has been up there for 3 or so days.

When you request a signature/avatar/spray, it will depend on whether us who're into graphic design find interest in- or want to do your request. A request is asking for help, not demanding help. It's not some kind of order.
Your signature request is quite the exact example on what I don't find any interest in. Basically because I don't know the characters, and you didn't even post a render. Seeing as you put "does not matter" in 3 out of 5 criterias, it really looks like it does not matter how the outcome is. I figured I'd just let someone else pick up the request because I did not want want to do it. Most requests normally get done, but you can't guarantee that they will be. If you don't like the outcome and the one who made it does not want to make a new one for you, bad for you. A "complain and get a new one warranty" does not exist.

You talking about how much you wish someone will pick up your signature request it in the chatbox, in other threads, bumping your own thread, talking about it on the server, talking to us who are into graphics... In some cases, someone might pick up your request sooner, while in most cases, people look at it as you being annoying and nagging them about it.
Sorry for being mean, but this is just the way it is. Yelling at you wasn't my intention. :P

(This is not pointed at RoverBot, but at everyone.)
One more thing that I constantly see in requests, is that they put ordinary JPEG images with background and all that shit under the "render" criteria.
Read the god damn This is a render! (http://www.steamgamers.com/forum/signatures-sprays-avatars-requests/30702-render.html) thread, and if you don't understand, have someone explain it for you. It's basically a double request seeing as we have to cut a render before we start on the actual request, meaning more work.

(This is directed towards this thread and the contest)
Seriously, guys... MAKE SOMETHING. POST IT. PARTICIPE. D:
Do you not care for phree creds?

I don't think this is particularly fair. I'm not saying you are, but nothing is stopping you from creating something, before the next contest, with a render you have chosen - then posting the contest with that render and your own piece of work. If you want to get people more involved in these competitions, give them more control considering they are the only ones who can keep the competitions alive.

That's exactly why i want to pick them, people could choose a render from a sig they have already made, but i guess that goes both ways. So i guess a fair way to pick the render would be for everyone to post a render on the contest poll thread and then let people choose one.

To be honest, you and other users who are submitting relatively good attempts, should wait a few days before posting, allowing users who may feel intimidated by your submission to post without fear of being beaten easily.

Sounds like a good idea!

But remember guys, there will be three winners so there's still hope ;)
