Woulden`t it be great if there was another competition but this time not just wallpaper but also stories and movies?

I konw that some of you ill find this idea bad but i think that it would be a great chance for somer trforum raiders to expose new ideas and have a new chance on wallpaper competition.

what do you think? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif - :( - :rolleyes:

It's a good :D idea to me. I think it would be great for someone to start that. I probably wouldn't win though, I'm **** when it comes to Photoshop and Imageready.

Sounds good. What about three unconnected competitions? (one for wallpapers, one for fanfictions and one for TRL videos) BUT all this with definite rules.

For example:

*Wallpaper competition rules > wp resalution 1024x768, use all your imagination. :D [one week to submit and one or two weeks to vote]

*Fanfictions competition rules > not more than two A4 pages and not less than one A4 page [one week to submit and one or two weeks to vote]

*TRL videos competition rules > Max size: 8MB! File format: *.WMV [one week to submit and one or two weeks to vote]

(Oh god they didn`t hate it :D !!!)
apofiss idea is great, we could make the rules right on this post, but I can`t start the competition cuse im not a mod/adm.

*Fanfictions competition rules > not more than two pages (A4 in MWord) [one week to submit and one or two weeks to vote]
I just dont agree whit that one cause it would be easyer to put the story on the post and not on a separet page so the A4 in MWord woulden`t work

but still is good! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/jumper.gif

Yes of course, fanfictions could be posted directly in the topic. With 2 pages (A4 MWord) I meant AMOUNT of text not that it has to be in Mword file format (*.doc) http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

I like your idea Apofiss but I am worried that people will vote for their friends here. I am new here and still an outsider (ppl even give me a bad rating although I haven't offended anyone). I don't know abaout all this. I just made a topic with 10 of my wallpapers and I hope the members, mods and admins will like them.

Apofiss
30-07-05, 20:09
I think the best way would be just like it was before &gt; we vote, but main vote comes from a person(s) who is/are from Eidos or CD. (+ the new order with work submission and voting times).

daggertail
30-07-05, 23:21
But resizing pics from a lower to a higher resolution makes them blury and spoils them

Mark Garcia
30-07-05, 23:23
1024 x 768 is OK for most machines. Although, next time I advise you to make your wallpapers bigger.

Apofiss
30-07-05, 23:25
Something to add.

Only one wallpaper, one fanfic, one video and one avatar per participant, no?

Apofiss could u open it on 08/01? Nope. Anyway, (I guess) final rules and dates will/should be done by admins.

daggertail
30-07-05, 23:26
Yeah but I have cut many lara figures which are suitable for a 1024x768 size wallp....I guess I will have to put smaller Laras on it. I will try but I can't re-edit 15 wallps. thanks for the advise, Mark.

Lol, i just started using FireWorksMX and PhotoShop like a week ago, i saw DaggerTails work in the Wallpaper Department, he is brilliant with that. I don't know how i can do the Avatars cause i have SO many ideas i can't just limit myself to one avatar. But i guess we will see how things go.

31-07-05, 10:25
Nope. Anyway, (I guess) final rules and dates will/should be done by admins. can u talk to an admin plz?

what about this voting rule:
img 1 img 2 img3 imag 4img5

the voting sould work like this

5 points for img 2
3 points for img 5
1 point for img 4

this vote sould work for all the catgories.

5/3/1 points for name of image/movie/fanfiction/avatar

what do you think?

Apofiss
31-07-05, 18:12
Ok, with tlr online's permission I'm making competition topics now (rules will be included).

5 competition categories:
-------------------------------
Wallpapers
Legend box-arts
Fanfictions
Legend videos
Avatars
-------------------------------

All 5 competitions starts in 1. August and ends in 31. August. So all work submissions from 1. - 31. August. Then voting.

Undecided yet.

apofiss can`t you change the number of pages on the fanfiction competition to 4, cuse its almost impossible to make a story whit 2 pages.
