So far we've discussed emblems, the judging process, etc. and I think we're off to a pretty good start.

Right now we're considering replacing a team of judges with a public poll so that users can decide for themselves which entry should win. We wanted to know if it was possible to have the option limit for polls overridden in case we ended up with more than 25 entries (unlikely IMO, but who knows?), and if not, if we could host the poll off-site at a public LiveJournal post.

also if I seem waaay too eager about this, it's only because this is my first event and it makes me feel special. ;;

EDIT: Resized the emblems and listing the members who should be recieving them. Also added the description blurb that goes with them, idk if it's needed but I'm including it for good measure. The winners have all been announced, so the contest thread can be closed whenever~


"Like a moonlit graveyard, you managed to chill the judges to the bone with your artistic ability during the 2010 Halloween Haunt's "Art Gallery in the Graveyard." Congratulations!"
This one goes to the following members:
aragornbird
Night Soul


"You're like a sunlit graveyard; though not nearly as threatening as you could be, you still have the potential to strike fear in the hearts of the living come nightfall. Congratulations on placing 2nd in the 2010 Halloween Haunt's "Art Gallery in the Graveyard" - you're quite the impressive artist!"
This one goes to the following members:
Hybrid Trainer


"Though you didn't place, your artwork added to the fearful atmosphere felt during the 2010 Halloween Haunt's "Art Gallery in the Graveyard"!"
This one goes to the following members:
LightOfTruth
Midnight Moon~
Blaziquaza
Bluerang1

Also, I wanted to know what limits on what people can submit are so we can add it to the rules. Like, blood and gore. I know this is a forum meant for little kids, so I just thought I'd ask what the staff wanted as far as that.

I was thinking if it has blood in it, it give it a rating (like in fanfics, idk we'll figure it out) and put it under a spoiler tag? Like I said, just checking v_v

Thread looks awesome~! I'm liking the grey color scheme, very graveyard-y. /shot

A couple of revisions I'd suggest:

Quote:
o3. We don't tolerate art theft or copyright infringement of any kind. Steal, and I will find you. And also disqualify you or something, idk.
and:

Quote:
o4. On the 31st, either Inkpuddle or I will post a poll, so there can be forum-wide voting on who should be the winner. Votes should be based on creativity and originality, and to a lesser extent, quality.
Also finished the emblems, assuming they'll go to first and second places:




EDIT: Forgot the participant emblem. ;; I'm not home right now but I can make it when I am, unless you'd like to do it.

Yeahh I was having problems wording things and I had to do it on a crappy browser wtf is swiftbrowse BUT YEAH, I'll make those changes, and I think it'd be better if you did it so the style is the same :3c

Otherwise, thanks! I have to work from 1:30-10 EST, so I won't be on much tomorrow. Actually, I work every day the get-together is going on. But I'll be on as much as possible~

Huzzah, I come bearing an emblem!



I know it's a little late, but I had some trouble getting home. I'm here now though~
I'll be here to monitor the thread tomorrow morning as well as Sunday, but I'm heading out of state on Saturday so I'll have limited computer access. Will still be able to check in every now and then, just not for extended periods of time.
If possible, could you set up a list of entrants (empty for the time being) so everyone knows their submissions got to us? Either that or I'll make a second post in the thread and maintain it that way, whichever works best for you.

    Just a note;
    Quote:
    bend, glue, or create something that will scare our socks off?
    For Horror Photography;
    Quote:
    Take a photo of anything you created or have seen that resembles Halloween.
    And the category is called spooks and crafts, which was decided even back in the original thread where they asked for hosts. D:
    Just saying. Idk. :(

    Ack, sorry! It completely slipped my mind while we were running everything by each other last minute... I'll make sure the first post gets edited later. For the time being I'll make an announcement in the Art Gallery that we're no longer accepting crafts and that entries of the sort should be directed at Horror Photography.

    Once again, I'm really sorry and I'm grateful to you for catching that. ;;

      xD It's fine, it was discussed earlier so it's our bad for not remembering. I think it's best this way since it's kind of hard for people to judge craft vs. 2D art since they follow completely different criteria. It's definitely more of a photography thing IMO.
