    I'll probably just stop being lazy and follow nefertari's tutorial of how to make a profile layout to see if I have enough confidence of playing with the big players. Hopefully I won't get destroyed haha.

    Between Drizzy's guide and Nefertari's guide, there genuinely isn't much else one needs to be considerate or cognizant of when it comes to profile designing. Moreover, a personal sentiment is that some individuals overestimate the value of GFXing in relation to profile designs. Amid the PotM judging process, excessive GFXing may actually be detrimental to an individual's point total. Briefly, if a profile theme can be decided upon, the next steps simply involve identifying suitable colors, images, and patterns. Whereas AotM (album) emphasizes entirely separate images in relation to a given theme, PotM emphasizes consolidating and layering images in a single space - the NB profile, which essentially boils down to finesse. For example, an image of Itachi generally would be better situated as the profile picture or part of the profile intro text, where it won't be obscured by message boxes and what not. Conversely, simple patterns generally function better as backgrounds and are relatively easy to customize, given the abundance of seamless pattern generators one can find (for free) online. Personally, a nice quality profile may not necessitate much more than minor tweaking of a few images. Certainly, participants shouldn't feel compelled to buy Photoshop or make things from scratch.

    To all present and future PotM participants, please observe the following change in the rules.


    Failure to comply with the rules will result in disqualification and possibly further sanctions!
    Cheating will result in a ten-day ban from the entire NB site, and a permanent ban from the PotM contest.


    Within recent months, contest cheating and member reluctance to report such violations has sadly become a reoccurring issue. There will no longer be any lenience relative to prior sanctions (two-month ban from PotM), and there will be no opportunity to repeal the punishment once the rule-breaking has been confirmed. If this change fails to curb cheating, PotM will go on indefinite hiatus. It is significantly difficult to identify most instances of PotM cheating, since members are not under constant scrutiny by moderators. Moreover, some members would seemingly rather complain about a lack of omnipotence or obsessive stalking on the host's part without simply reporting any issues.

    2-3 days, usually. I've just been waiting on some judging, but last months' awards will be sorted in the next day or two.
