    Seriously just an advice. Don't participate thinking you want a medal so bad. Just think that you participated and you submitted a work that gives out good quality and competition to the others. Honestly, all the awards I won were just like that. I was always like "just submitting to try. Not gonna win ofcourse". But I did. So don't run after the awards, just believe in your work and practice all you can.

Basically in that manga they had something called Pokemon Contests, held on 4 levels of difficulty, and winning one of the levels granted you a ribbon. Starting with no ribbons, you would go to the first level of minimum difficulty. Winning a ribbons there would grant you acces to the next level and so on. I thought that maybe something similar, but on 2 levels, would be nice for NB as well, but having something like that in the Art Contest, means it would be needed in all the contests.

    Therefore, this is where the bubble pops: mods wouldn't have the time to reorganise all the contests or moderate 2 of them at the same time.

    It's in the Pokemon games too Sapphire&Ruby

    On Topic - If there were 4 contests, split into these compartments, lets say: 'No Awards', '1 Award', '2 Awards', '3+ awards', then some compartments would only have about 3 members competing, if that o.O

    Re: Art of the Month Discussion

    so more mods or users with time and trustwothiness to take care of the begginer cont .....

    Is not that difficult they do it in onepiecebay all the time and it works... in my opinion (and i have nothing againt him) cali has alot of stuff to do (actually would out him 40% of the base wouldent work) but it seems that he is NOT willing to "release" some of his work load to others... things would be fine... like this lara idea or other stuff dosent matter, the mods of the base are kinda protective of there role in this fourum
    and its understandable, thats why NB is so busy all the time, pure quality organization and moderating.....

    sorry 4 the gramer im using a xbox ..... =)

    Ifkr

    Well, if there were 4 contests, I think it's a bit exaggerated to divide the levels like that. I mean it's not such a big difference between having one medal and having 2. If there were actually 4 levels, I'd say a division like
    -level 1 - 0-4 medals
    -level 2 - 5-9 medals
    -level 3 - 9-14 medals
    -level 4 - 15+ medals

    And with eventual nice names like Normal Contest, Advanced Contest, Expert Contest and Excellency Contest.

    But yeah, such division would need more people to look after them, just as Hansom said, and he has a valid point when saying that it's not an everyday thing to take more people in the staff, especially just for something like this. So until further notice guys, this idea is all that it will be: an idea.

    I think Cali might be a LITTLE against this since he´ll have to take care of 3 more contests than usual

    There's no retirement for an
    artist, it's your way of
    living so there's no end to
    it.
     



    Re: Art of the Month Discussion

    First of all, I really think that the art of the month contest need to be active again cause as the time goes by, viewers and voters are getting low in numbers, which is the number one factors in winning the contest its not about how many medals you won for an artist to have some vote, its all about the QUALITY of the drawing of the artist on how good it is.
    If other members or participants really want some medals then prove yourself first don't act like your unable to compete LOL, I mean wheres the FIGHTING SPIRIT which is the most required if your in a contest??? And the other thing, ALTERNATE ACCOUNTS should be strictly monitored because they are the reasons of some inappropriate vote.

    Exactly this. If you really want to win the contest and gain a medal, you have to EARN it. Just viewing Zack's and Killer's art gives me motivation to get better.

    Just keep entering contests and practising your drawing skills... before you know it, you'll have a ton of medals.

    Im really glad that Zack and I motivates ppl to get better, cause at the end of the day, its not all about winning and garnering medals, the real award really comes from what imprint we make in the realm of art.
    Keep on rocking guys. ^^

    I agree! Except I would get neither... You see that's a clever thing to do man because its getting people to participate and try to get the award. You would probably get that
