2006-10-16 [Calico Tiger]: I've got a question! Does the fantasy race have to be one of the existing ones that you can choose from the list in your house when updating info? Or can it be any fantasy race?
2006-10-16 [Lothuriel]: I wouldn't think so. At least I hope not, that would limit the entries big time.
2006-10-16 [Sunrose]: It was your idea Loth, so if you had in mind to allow all fantasy races, then that's what we'll do :)
2006-10-16 [Lothuriel]: Oh, it was wasn't it, lol!! Ok then, all fantasies are included!
2006-10-16 [Sunrose]: Haha yes :P
2006-10-16 [iippo]: And does fantasy portrait include sci-fi? 'Cos I'd be one smokin' hot Borg!
2006-10-16 [Lothuriel]: Well, I would suppose that would still be considered Fantasy. There are cyborgs in many fantasy worlds.
2006-10-18 [Calico Tiger]: >_> I've finished my portrait already. Now I just need to wait for the new scanner to be delivered so I can scan and color it XD
2006-10-18 [Sunrose]: looool x)
2006-10-20 [H3_six]: This is great. Can the fantasy race be one you made up? It says 'all fantasy races' but doesn't specify what makes a fantasy race, erm, fantasy.
2006-10-20 [H3_six]: Yep. I just want to be sure BEFORE I start. Heh, not makin that mistake again.
2006-10-20 [Lothuriel]: I'll say mainstream Fantasy races. If we start allowing others, we will run into problems.
2006-10-20 [Calico Tiger]: Does anthro people fall into that, Loth? Ie, cat people, wolf people, dragon, etc... ?
2006-10-20 [Lothuriel]: perhaps we should make specific allowances then? Hm, anthros, elves, dwarves, orcs, halflings, gnomes, fairies, aw crap there are just too many.
But, yes I would say that anthros are very mainstream.
2006-10-20 [Atayemi]: Are photomanips allowed? :)
2006-10-20 [Sunrose]: See rule 5 ;)
2006-10-20 [Atayemi]: I missed it. :P Thanks, Sunrose. :D
2006-10-22 [Sienta]: Ok, I feel very nieve and new, but I've never entered a contest before and weeeeeeeeeeell
2006-10-23 [EmeraldGrizzly]: What of photo manipulations of yourself? Are they allowed?
2006-10-23 [Calico Tiger]: "All mediums, excepting photography (and/or manipulations) and animated GIF's, will be accepted."
2006-10-23 [Calico Tiger]: Sienta, just draw an image following the guidelines, upload it to your house, then edit Fantasy Portrait Entries and add it there :D Unless your image is bigger than what Elftown allows in size to be uploaded to your house (wider than 500 pixels, for example). Then message [Sunrose] or [Charybdis] for a high enough priv level to upload images to wiki pages directly :)
2006-10-24 [Sienta]: Thank you very much Calico Tiger!! I am very relieved, although I may not have enough time left........ oh well, I shall try my best! :)
2006-10-25 [Calico Tiger]: The deadline is a month away, so I'm sure you'll have plenty of time :D Start drawing XD
2006-10-31 [Kuehne]: so "fantasy race".. does that mean it has to be non-human? What about a human from a fantasy type realm/time period?
2006-11-01 [Lothuriel]: As long as you can make her look obvious I don't see a problem with it. In other words, of course if you show a woman in a business suit and call her Ursula from the future, it won't work. But, with your art and creative mind I don't think we will have a problem.
2006-11-02 [earthkynd]: Is it too late to enter yet? =3
2006-11-02 [Ocean Soul]: DEADLINE: 25th of November :)
2006-11-03 [Vou]: Oooooooooooooo Hige will join!!! =)
2006-11-06 [The Last Mellon]: hey if you already have a squirrel badge do you get a second one if you enter another contest?
2006-11-06 [Ocean Soul]: No, but your badge can be upgraded; if you take part in some more contests you will in the end have a colored squirrel or - if you take part in even more contests - get a master of building badge.
Though getting a badge shouldn't really be the reason you take part in contests, right ;)
2006-11-07 [The Last Mellon]: no it's not but I was wondering, I'm kinda new at this.
2006-11-11 [Ilana]: Can the squirrel be upgraded if you've won a contest before?
2006-11-11 [shotokan_gal]: It might be upgraded to a green masters of building badge if they win again. But it does depend on the situation and how many contests the individual's been in, and so those tend to be looked at on a case by case basis I think.
2006-11-12 [Ilana]: Ok. I guess that makes sense.
2006-11-28 [Sunrose]: You can now vote for the winning entry in the Mainstreet poll! :)
2006-12-02 [Keseken]: Why was that one entry removed??
2006-12-02 [Calico Tiger]: Because it did not follow one of the rules: "drawings must be well shaded and/or coloured"
2006-12-04 [Moonlit Serenade]: Why was it picked in the first place, then?
2006-12-04 [Yuriona]: Oversight? The council is only human you know. :P
2006-12-04 [Moonlit Serenade]: I suppose. I'm just bummed because that was the one I voted for.
2006-12-04 [Yuriona]: Sorry.
2006-12-12 [Niku Gragen]: Where do you see where other people placed, the people who lost?
