Pirate Fanart Contest Thread - is back and up for voting

459 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

The first phase of the contest is now closed and the Pirate Fanart Thread has been removed from this subforum in order to clean up and to prepare the voting phase.

No posts have been lost and we will be back soon for the poll.

 

Edit:
Entries are up for voting:
http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/79929-pirate-fanart-contest-voting/

 

All entries, randomized, on a single page : http://votepiratebdo.herokuapp.com/

(may take about 1min to display)

 

--

Here i made a site where you can see ALL the entries on the same page : http://votepiratebdo.herokuapp.com/

You can't vote directly from the website, and it's not totally perfect, but I made this quickly for you all <3

PS: It may takes time to gather all entries in one page. Be patient, entries are com- displaying...

@CM_Praballo How long will we have to vote for our favourite drawing? Also would it be a problem if we upload drawings on our personal blogs/art pages?

I already posted mine on my art page first before i posted it here because of art stealing. I'm sure it will be alright but it would great if someone can confirm if it's ok.

20% will be chosen after the votes. Now they just gather all valid entries in 1 place for voting. After that, the top 20% most voted will move to final stage.  Placeholders did not have any relevance.

Hope we are not limited to 10 votes/likes per day like in general in the forums, one runs out on them so fast.

Looking forward to the whole thing, good luck to everyone! :)

It's not over yet, there will be a thread with all the pics and there people can like them, and the top 20% of those will be the ones that the GMs pick the winners from, at least that's what the original post said in the old thread.

Actually I expected everybody to have only one vote... : P

I hope that it is indeed restricted to 1 vote per account. Yes, some people will still abuse it with multiple accounts but it will keep people from voting daily for the same entry if the thread is up multiple days/a week or more for voting. Vote stacking shouldnt be allowed. Just my 2 cents.

Hm, true, possible that they do that, will be difficult to just vote for one entry though, there were quite a few nice ones.

Vote stacking still isn't possible even with the vote system the forum uses now, you can't like a post more than once, you can just like/unlike it.

But yeah making multiple accounts would still be a problem, even if one only had one vote.

 

We'll see how the voting will work, hope it will be as fair as possible.

Totally. Out of respect for the people who actually invested time in this. Another reason why only the players that bought the game should have access on the forum.

Just be happy that there are 1) a lot of people that will be disqualified immediately and 2) several of us artists that purposefully didnt enter but will be able to vote.

So while many can and prolly will vote for their own stuff it is those of us on the outside that will be the true deciders as well as the CMs with their final vote. Otherwise everyone would be in the top with a tying 1 vote and there would be no point. :P

 

 

Bet some people were wishing now that they werent such jerks in the other thread. ;) Jerk-like saying so, maybe, but "just sayin" lol.

I'm still wondering how the vote will go, not because I want to know how many votes we will be allowed to give, but how many drawings will there be :D and how will they put them together. I mean there were at least 40 good ones, not talking about the trolls (just submissions for 7-day costume), which I'm not sure if will be eligible for voting but they can't discard them either. I'm veery curious. 

Give us the voting thread already! ><

I really hope this doesn't all come down to a popularity contest. I'd hate to see good pieces not make the top 20% because of petty stuff like that.

Hopefully that will be considered once the public voting is over and done with.

I was definitely glad to be a part of this contest, and I hope that reflected in my entry.  Although I don't have the popularity aspect covered (which is fine by me), I'm proud of my submission.  There's also lots of other very beautiful entries submitted by talented artists, and I wish all of you luck!

My feeling is it will be. Even though I entered I know about 6 people all up, one of which also entered lol. It's a real shame they decided to go with a peer vote. I'm worried the top 20% is going to be filled which trash and the good pieces (mine not included there) will be passed over

Hope they announce in game too lol. The more general public voting for the best pieces rather than for their friends is better.

Ya that thread was way outta hand, many people were being jerk-like, even myself included. So much pre contest tempers flying lol. They should have just had it so they submit your art through private message. I hope they learn for next time :/ . I still think you should have submitted something, it's a shame you didn't now you won't even get a costume.

I made a suggestion thread about events last week. It touched a few different things but I didnt really go into the way contests were set up with judging and I should have so if you guys have ideas and thoughts about this stuff please definitely post it there.

A lot of these things (the voting) are happening because people in old contest threads were giving the CMs a really hard time and saying they (the CMs) voted for crappy entries. Little did they realize that it is even worse this way. Some want the popularity contest because it helps them if they have a large guild etc but most know it isnt fair and causes drama.

So please comment even if you dont agree with anything I originally posted or your comments are are new items/things concerning events. Most of us want these to continue but we want them to be "as fair as possible".
