2018 General Loading Screen Thread
 
Hi there! Thank you for coming here to discuss the loading screens.
I created this thread separately so we can keep the other thread limited to submissions only.
If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please post them here.
 
 


FAQ

 
What happened to the Creative Convention Hats?
They will no longer be used as participation prizes for the Loading Screens. However, they may still appear later as prizes for other contests, raffles, and other such events. They're not going away forever  :ok:
 
Why aren't you giving all participants prizes anymore?
We wanted to streamline the loading screen thread and strip it down to its core, intended function: to be a place for fanartists to show off their work and have them put in the game. Adding the element of load-screen-exclusive prizes was unfair to others who did not participate in the load screens, or worse, gave some the incentive to spam the thread with low-effort entries made only with the intention of gaining a prize. 
 
Why are you still doing a raffle, then?
For fun  :p_hi:  Submitting doesn't guarantee you a prize, but it still gives you a chance to win one just by submitting work to us!
 
Doesn't it defeat your purpose if the raffle prize is still exclusive to the loading screens?
It would... if it were exclusive to the loading screens, which it isn't!  :heh: Although the item is new, we will be using it in the future for other contests, raffles, and events. The raffle prize will be named for load screen raffle winners all the time though, which is pretty special and and of itself.

Hmm, this sounds like a return back to the spirit of how the loading screen threads were before the introduction of prizes. Not a fan of the raffle prize thing, since it still presents the opportunity to reintroduce the abusable contests and participation prizes issue that caused everything to go to Hel to begin with.

This doesn't solve the issue of low-quality entries polluting the loading screen pool.  This change still incentivises entering something, anything, for a chance at getting something valuable.  In fact, I'd argue that this potentially punishes high-quality artists.  For example, here are the current load screens:

 

For this example, imagine the official art was entered by a user as a potential loading screen.

I have no shame in admitting I have two favourites here.  I think I break no rules when I say I viscerally hate two of these.  Art can evoke feeling and I would rather have the empty blackness of the void as a load screen than look at those two.  Now imagine the TerraGloria artist's feeling if they fail the RNG raffle and come away with nothing.  Yeah, they're not gonna try next time.

 

Art can be evaluated; we do it all the time. 

 

 

 

 

There's only one sure-fire way to quality control and that's for the GM to have some standards and have the balls to judge.

The new rule states that artists can now post as much as they want so like no one's forcing them to pick really bad ones out of vacancy by now (probably?)

Great! finally it's here!!
I think the rules are fine, this make the thread into.. more like "donate your art to participate in the raffle" seems fair to me since I take this thread as pure fun to everyone!

Astra I think you can add the cretive convention hat too, time to time and if may I do a suggestion... how about do the raffle 1 winner per week and raffle 1 different hat for every raffle?  :hmm: 

For exemple... 
week 1 raffle the Smokie Hat
week 2 raffle Cretive convention Hat (Red)
week 3 raffle Costume ribbon muffler
week 4 raffle x2 Costume Moon and Stars and Costume Present of Snow (of course this last raffle will be 2 different winners)
how about that? 

 

uhh... but I don't know... thinking twice, i think I prefer and it's better if the arts stay 1 month along in the game as loading screens  :ani_swt3:

p.q always bad lucky for RNG. Feel stressful for the word "quality" control. p.q what is the acceptable quality?
The picture without shadow and light is a disqualify quality art? Just curious~

Spoiler

Commissioned art submissions have been a part of the loading screen thread tradition for a while, and I haven't changed it for this.

If someone submits a commissioned art, the submitter will get the prize if they are selected via raffle but not the artist.

Hope that clears it up for you :)

There's only one sure-fire way to quality control and that's for the GM to have some standards and have the balls to judge.

 

I've emphasized a few things in blue for myself to let you know that it is those comments I am responding to when I say:

The loading screen thread is not a contest :)

We absolutely do run art contests on the forums that are judged based on originality of concept as well as skill of execution, all judged by a panel of WarpPortal staffers such as myself.

The purpose of the loading screen is to allow fanartists of all skill levels to share what they've made and have it show up in game.

So, yes, art CAN be evaluated, can be judged, and high-level artists can be rewarded.... and they frequently are, in a contest setting.

But this isn't a contest setting ;)

I think you would still need to submit a new one. :ani_swt3:  Because if it's not included in the current batch of loading screens that were added in-game, then chances are it didn't get approved or something. >< You could still poke the staff to check on it though!

 

Another raffle question: Do people who have previously won the raffle get another chance of winning for the next raffle?
