How are you possibly going to regulate this?

I'm mostly going on hope that everyone'll just go for it :p
Not that I really expect any entries or anything.

No no what I'm saying is how can you confirm someone has collabed with someone else and not just said "hyack hyack i made this with John Smith here ahurhurhur" when they did it single handedly?

Theres a hundred different ways people can cheat or bend the rules here, and I wouldn't put it past a select few.

Why not just make it general collabs? Doesn't have to be "off site" or as I coined it "off to go cheat" collabs.

Simply, "collab" can be with someone on AF or with solid conformation someone offsite.

THE MIND BOGGLES!

Wait wait wait.... Why WOULD you pick a theme that you already do not expect any entries on? Isn't that counter productive? Shouldn't it be a theme that you do expect entries for from the get go? I mean this doesn't make any sense. Sure a theme should pose somewhat of a challenge, and get people out of their comfortable little boxes from time to time. But I really don't see how an off-site collab will really help with that, considering the fact that many of us may not know any GFX'ers we can personally ask for them to help us out with this favor.

I also do agree with Tatty's regulation concerns as well....

But for the love of AF, would you PLEASE drop the cheating issue. It's need not something you need to worry about. No need to bring it up every month.. If you have concerns with cheating, please PM a mod/admin and express your concerns privately as it is a serious matter not suited for open and public SOTW discussion. .Tatty.

I suppose so. I'll just leave it as normal collabs then, though I'm not really expecting much from that either :p

There are hundreds of different ways to cheat or bend the rules in any SotW contest.

How can you confirm whether or not a user actually made the signature he entered? What if he ripped it?

How can you confirm that a user in the running for 1st place doesn't intentionally throw his vote, passing over the best entry to vote for one that has no chance at winning?

SotW is suppose to be fun, not stressful. Moreover, it's a gentleman's contest.
Unless you implement impartial judges (and a slew of other rules, like sending in .psds) the contest will always depend on having honest participants.

I think you completely missed his point, that being that given last weeks lack of entries, he doesn't have high expectations for this week, regardless of theme

Middy There's some things that can be used to check for ripping. Least of which is Google Image.

You each work on one sig and pass the psd back and forth.

Ah ok. Well if someone wants to be my partner, PM me and also let me know if you want to pass on the PSD thru email and such.

Middy you said it tounge and cheek but thats a PERFECT idea, send in your PSDs (and GIMP equivalent) for every SoTW.

...yeah, I dont think it's that serious.
It's not like we're winning anything, so I don't see any reason to get so serious about this. And even if they sent .PSD's, they could be from a psd pack, or just made by a friend/relative. So, there's really no way of knowing either way :p I'll just hope everyone just plays for fun and decides not to cheat.

Ah so a relative can be an acception? Sounds real interesting and two, I don't get why would anyone cheat on something that is supposed to be for a fun purpose. :/
