hi! i for one think that hearing all the fuss about this contest being rigged is very crucial to how this would end up as in the future for us as a community. in no particular offense, but what are the chances one wins at random, at the same time handpicked as a winner by a gm? not saying [they] didn't deserve it, like many others [they] probably did. but it's getting tiring to hear all the stories about it, and tbh locks further innovative steps we can take for this program in our creative contraptions
like seriously? i thought having this comeback and looking like it's more rewarding than before? what good will the gm's drawing lots for a random shot at winning do for our hopeful artists here. i say the former was better if we wanted them to feel good about themselves
to artists, if you think it's more interesting that your names be drawn lots, whatever the given output was (and yes there's still respect to having art in the eyes of an individual) i'd say it does not give any difference at all from whatever we deviated from (if you guys wanted to compliment each other all day, participation prizes would have been better). the gm's will still not judge your art for how you drew it and you all know that. although i'll give the gm's a +1 for not hurting your feelings and all, but tbh be real. do you want to make art knowing you'll only get something by chance or do you want it for the very reason that your entry deserved to actually have won, or maybe just do your best and get a prize for it. simple answer really if it was me
i don't exactly make art of my own, nor do i care, but being as all this is a fuss? lol
i think having random prizes for participants is worse than the old participation prizes. it gets out to wild conclusions and possible divisions within the community, also does not tackle our main goal of constantly upgrading the quality of passed art. i say go back to participation prizes, and that's the easier way to not hurt our artists' feelings because who here can actually walk up to people and say their art is ugly?
