Rules and Regulations
Sigs due every Sunday by 5pm by ever competitor
Sigs can be no bigger than 500 pixels wide and 250 pixels tall.
The judges score all sigs and the bottom number sig's by average will be placed into a public poll.
Judges - Will grade in the FEW format. They will give a score out of 10 for flow, execution, and wow. (thx deadly)
The public will vote on which sig is the best...and that competitor will advance to the next round.
Elimination
With 14 people in this contest...it seems a bit drawn out to only eliminate 2 sigs a week...I'm pretty sure this will lead to scheduling conflicts and the judges might get annoyed. So we will be eliminating more early and tone it down towards the end.

First Round the bottom 4 average scored sig's will be put up for voting. Only one will advance. Leaving us at 11 participants.
Second Round the bottom 4 average scored sig's will be put up for voting. Only one will advance. Leaving us at 8 participants.
Third Round the bottom 3 average scored sig's will be put up for voting. Only one will advance. Leaving us at 6 participants.
Fourth Round the bottom 3 average scored sig's will be put up for voting. Only one will advance. Leaving us at 4 participants.
Fifth Round the bottom 3 average scored sig's will be put up for voting. Only one will advance. Leaving us at only 2 participants.
Sixth and Final Round will be heads up...and will be left up strictly for public voting.
Round One - First topic is a 2007 released movie. Something that has came out or will come out in theaters in 2007.

Alright...just curious what the participants want to do. Do we want a judging system or a sig idol ideal...where the bottom sigs go to the public for voting?

neko4
05-14-2007, 06:38 PM
why not have a bunch of people submit one sig (accoriding to the designated theme) and have 3 judges pick 20 of them to go on getting voted

During voting there would be 2 seperate threads and the top 5 from each thread move on and then down to 4, to 2 and then a winner. And i guess uring the voting stages people can post 4 sigs of their own choice

It'll be interesting to see if any of the old guys come back.

DIG is never around anymore but he could do either. I'm sure he is busy at deadly tho from the look of it.

Snuff would have been my vote for judge...critical but accurate.

If we don't have a public voting...I want it to be people with graphic experience obviously.

I remember when we relaunched nfldc that Charger came back around...maybe could lure him back for a couple of days.

Ya...if we really start having trouble getting people in it I might have to open it...I still like my idea to have Bantx and NCST judge...new school judging oldschool wouldn't be bad...probably better than opening it to the public.

The public has to be involved somehow, but I understand how you guys can be reluctant towards it because everyone just votes for the sig that relates to them the best. I hope the judges are unbiased in that case.

in the 1st idol,(or 2nd, i forget) we had the judges choose the top sigs and for the final spot to advance, we made the public vote on who would continue
i like that idea and i think we should incoporate that

Na, I'm not attempting to be modest right now, just honest, I'm not that great right now, kinda in a slump, and what I think is good isn't necessarily what the judges will like so this is definitely up for grabs imo.

nice job thule, way to set this bad boy up.

ok soemone aksed how we do it. the judges pick their bottom three sigs, than they had up who was the worst threes by combining rankings, those three sigs go to the public and the public votes on one sig to advance

rainbeaukid2
05-15-2007, 12:01 AM
i could maybe do it, it depends on how anal my mom gets with my newest progress report. i don't think any of the sigs i could make nowadays could stack up to my sigs of old though.

We should have more experienced and talented people judging that way they can make a more intelligent judging decision. For instance, if VLS doesn't have time to participate and wants to judge, he should be a judge, where as ncst8fan83, no offense to you man, but you are just starting out graphics. That's not to say you wouldn't make for a good judge, but you wouldn't necessarily know "as much" as someone more experienced, in terms of judging.

Just my opinion.

I think Snuff should be a judge if he wants to (unless he's banned).

I would just like to post the first rule. Since this is for us old schoolers...you can very well bet that the size restriction on these sigs will be 500x250 just like the good ole days of nfldc. (for those of you who don't follow...those were the old sig restriction sizes.

Nice, sounds good. I'll start throwin around some potential topics...

Being a draft site, we could do something with Draft prospects on their respective teams to start off for the first round, and then as we start getting fewer people, we can make the topics harder.

What I think would be cool, is maybe do sigs all rounds and then go to a wall or something for the final round, to really test the final contestants. Other than that, I think sticking with sigs would be best..

the official rules for the people who are still confused, there are sigs due every week by ever competitor, no bracket. then the judges pick the bottom three sigs. after that the public votes on one to advance to the next round, and so on. thats the way it was the first time, were not changing it up

personally, i didn't care too much for the flow. too many renders and not enough of a focal point. that sig he just made is hot though.

text takes up way too much of the sig... it becomes the focus and underscores what you did with the rest of it.Actually, considering the fact that you would probably have no idea what's going on without it and the fact that it is indeed for a movie such as it is, I very much disagree with you.

Not cocky there huh? Haha, I was surprised you were ranked that low. I thought yours was the best of the round personally.
Well not really cocky, but it's pretty much what I thought. Thanks though.

hahahaha, if I wouldn't be able to tell what was going on in the sig... then it isn't a very good sig.

CCB was the mind behind the topic. Why is it weak Tob....it's a person. If i would have said favorite nfl player would it have been weak?

Eh, not necessarily, seeing as you seemingly know very little about art...you've made it fairly obvious that because of narrow minded dimwits like yourself I need to put in text such as this or else you will feel lost and alone.

I think Blue for the "Ice Man" would have fit better but damn if that ain't a good sig.

ditto........ a Shogun rua one would be appreciated and the Chute Boxe logo is really cool and may look sweet on a sig:)

o my god get off your damn high horse. Your sig was good, but could have been much better. The focal point of the sig was the text, that is not necessarily what you should be aiming for. No just shut the **** up and make your damn sig so i can use my "dimwit judging skills" to judge your ***** ass.
