The signature should be made specifically for use only in that week's competition. Participants are entitled to submit ONE signature per competition. Any entry that has been ripped/stolen will be immediately disqualified.

2) Any reference to subjects like missed deadlines, entering, not entering, are NOT tolerated. It provides a clear indication of who may (not) be involved in the competition, while potentially 'giving away' entries. Disclosure of signature author, be it yours or another participants, will result in BOTH signatures being disqualified from the competition.

3) All comments regarding the SOTW competition should be made in the Theme Topic. Should you have any concerns or queries after the topic closure please contact Serated.

All entries and participants must abide by the aforementioned rules otherwise risk having their entry disqualified (incl. late or do not follow criteria of the theme).

Er... You have to PM it to him. The way I see it, this'll be an anonymous contest so you'll probably have to make a new one now.

It is a good thing to READ the rules first, hopefully we can have a Mod hide your post. Though I will advise just making a whole new signature. Also, you are not supposed to place your name on the signature and avoid making it obvious that you made it. You may however add any form of title you like to the signature as long as it is not a name of someone.

Well, I was wondering when someone might do a SOTW in AF.
I've never entered in one, and it seems fun.
This will be exciting.

Yeah, your not supposed to, but saying that the competition will be exciting or criticizing the theme is perfectly allowed.

Hey Serated..Are we allowed to get critique from outside sources who won't be voting??

As long as there is 'Animegalleries.net' text on all the versions, then I dont see a problem with it.

Errr it is anonymous. The main weapons used is Adobe Photoshop CS2/3 or GIMP with the latter being free. You could enter in another SOTW when you have learned your way around the program you decided on. Have a look in the signature and avatar section of animegalleries.net to see what members have created. There are many excellent tutorials that members have created so check them out as well [most are with CS2/3].
