A few people have been asking for this for a while, so I want to know if YOU'd want one. Since most of the beginners who enter normal sig of the week end up losing to more experienced users, I thought this would give them a fair shot. The themes will be easier and the competition won't be as experienced, so it should be fair. Users who normally enter sotw right now (you know who you are ) might be too experienced, and therefore won't be able to compete. I'll reject entries from higher members if they try to enter.
The term "beginner" can apply to anyone who doesn't think they're good enough for the normal sotw. The usual sotw competitors won't be allowed to enter this one, and vice versa. Once a some members think you're ready for the real sotw, we can move you up. Or you can request to be moved up whenever you think you're ready.
And if this goes through, how would you like votes to be passed? Here's a few suggestions:
---The normal sotw way (pick someone and give feedback)
---Top three entries (pick your top three entries. Feedback is optional.
The ways to vote aren't limited to those, so if you have a suggestion, post it here! Also, would you like this to be anonymous or public? If public, you could request feedback on your entry, which i'll be happy to supply
The rest of the usual sotw entries will apply though. One entry per person, no cheating, yadda yadda etc.
So, what do you think? Should we try and get this going?
Also, normal sotw and experienced gfxers can help with this thread. feed back is appreciated!
