You say this competition is about creativity, in that case which are the standars for that? You know why competitions are always analised by the technique, proportions, composition and style? because is something you can measure while creativity is something you can't (not measurable at 100%, but at least closer than creativity). I could make a generic draw that everyone could fine "uncreative" at first look, but making a creative stand with it.
I agree that some creativity in a draw should be measured, but it shouldn't be the main focus, because it can't be measure as the others.
Also this is stupid, of course someone who is better is going to defeat someone who is not, thats the whole point of a contest (and at least is a contest where the one who is better win, and not the one with more popularity).
I haven't been voting, because this competition should be finished a long time ago and is obvious who are the first, second and third place. Now if you tell me that my argument of which one are the winners is bad, then Mikulo (yeah, mikulo, I don't spell it wrong because I didn't want it, I enjoy to write your user name like that) which are the standars for voting? because creativity is kinda weak, and obviously technique, composition, style and others are not for the competition.
Also I hate the loser eliminations, as Toast said by msn "Man, it's kinda rubbing in the face of losers how bad they are compared to the winners". You know, when someone tells you which are the first, second and third place, and not telling you how good or bad you went under the winners, it make you hope not being the bottom. Yeah, when you do this, it make someone not only lose, but also someone is going to be in the bottom.
Yeah is a OC competition, where the most appealing win, but the technique, the "how it look", the colour technique and the style are important, because the visual characteristic is the first one someone see and is the one that let people make a first judgment.
Also are you saying that just writting the likes and dislikes of a character is a bio? I don't know, but for my a Bio is something a little more deeper, like problems, story, psychologic behavior, goals, contextualization (yeah, it can be a wizard and you need to make a contextualization throught the story and goals), perspective of life, phylosophy of life, etc.
So even if this is not about skills but about the "Bio's", the Bio's by it's self are failing.
I'm sorry, but the contest is retarded and just because the arguments are bad, the system is bad and people is trying to stretch it to much, something that shows a lack of professionalism (and this is supossed to be a big contest on MT).
This is the best signture that a person can have.
