GoTM Idea

Posted 10 August 2009 - 10:11 PM

ok guys we have SoTM and SoTW but these are signatures limited to a fix size other wise it is out of rule, i have an idea about Graphic of the month, no fix size no rule.

I wouldn't mind, but this is similar to the SOTW as it has no theme. I think there should be a size rule as it could get out of hand. For now, though, 2 competitions is enough. :)

there are some issues with this idea. First, this is generally a coding community so the competition will more then likely die down over time or it will just be the same people entering over time. The Second issue, like firebolt said, there are already enough competitions. It would work if there was a SotM and a GotM and sig started on week 1 and graphic started on week 3. Other then that I don't know this idea would work.

also i think that if it were to actually start the users should have to create everything from scratch and use their own images.

I hope this helps you out

Just one thing I noticed, we are not just a coding community. We are a Programming and Web Development community, so that would definitely include Graphic Design. I have a feeling one of the Signature competition will die out, though.

you are right firebolt! Designing is a part of web developments.

yes but only a small portion of this site is web development and a smaller portion is graphic design. notice how I said this site is generally a coding site. Obviously graphics are included in web development but its not something i think people want to join this community for.

Did you know it wasn't a coding site at first? More leaning towards Web Development.

Okay guys, lets keep it professional.

While I think the idea sounds interesting I am going to say we need to hold off before starting up yet another contest in the GD section. We are in the process of getting 2 contests up and running (we haven't hit 20+ entries for a SoTM yet, etc.). So I think starting up another contest will have the potential of spreading things too thin and turning off some potential members from joining any of the contests.

i'd kick off the sotw and go for the gotm
like calebj said, the will sotm start in the first week and the gotm in the third week.
id think that would work pretty well
