This week, we’ll be trying something a little different - we’re going to try and harness the awesome power of the Weekend Challenge
The objective is to produce a set of images that will be used elsewhere in elYsiun’s forums. As a result, this week there are a couple of temporary changes to the rules (standard rules found here: http://www.elysiun.com/viewtopic.php?t=1547 )
An “entry” is required to represent all 4 parts of the theme. This could be by submitting a seperate image for each part of the theme, or a single image that could be chopped up to produce the 4 parts.
File sizes: for those submitting a single image, the file size limit has been raised to 500kB this week. For those submitting multiple images, the limit is 250kB per image.
Conventional interpretations are preferred this week.
Despite having won last week, imgranpaboy is eligible to enter again this week - mainly because he generously gave up his theme selection priviledge to allow this special challenge.
Despite not having won last week, theeth and I are not eligible to enter this week, as we have been conspiring about this special theme for a few days.
I think I’ve covered everything about this special challenge here, but if you have any questions ask. It might also be an ides to check this message every once in a while in case I adjust the temporary rules (to clarify things).
In other news, the weekend challenge dominatrix (available for all your formatting/validation/timekeeping needs) has been rebuilt. The dominatrix now conforms to Strict (of course ) XHTML. Please let me know (PM/email/message below) if you have any display problems, or there are any other issues.
Also, there is a proposal floating around to make the ocassional Weekend Challenge much more challenging. Read about it here: http://www.elysiun.com/viewtopic.php?p=38626#38626
And finally, a tip for rookie challengers: it’s a good idea to not leave it until the last minute before submitting your entry. If there is a problem with your entry (bad url/hostile webhost/etc…) it’s much easier to fix this before voting starts, rather than after. Note that the dominatrix will check yor URL(s) for accesibility, and will let you know if things don’t look right.
Well, I’ve run out of things to say, so I’ll step aside and make way for the placeholder stampede.
(again I’m falling asleep, so again we’re starting half an hour early)
