Extend The Contest? What Are Your Thoughts?

Postby Mike » January 20th, 2010, 10:39 am

I have reviewed the entries and I think there is definitely room for improvement. There are submissions that were not submitted properly and also some people making the logos didn't adhere to my suggestions, not that it is required, but usually they are made for a reason. Remember for each, it really needs to capture people's attention and make them interested in Sandbox. I think there are some great starts and that is why I think if there was more time it would help everyone out.

This leaves me with one of two options.

1) Keep the contest ended and award the prizes to the people whose work was the best, but will probably not be used and/or replaced shortly. Also the trailers all did not adhere to the submission guidelines.
2) Extend the contest 1-2 weeks or so and let people improve their work and/or submit more entries.

I think this decision is mainly up to Siim, Stefos, Eagle, Sonic, Chaze, Drago, and Gr1m, aka people that actually submitted the content. Please post your thoughts.

I'm interested in hearing opinions. Take care.

I vote no I think we had plenty enough time besides if you don't like a section declare no winner and use the prize for a different contest. Also I think it's time to move on to a new different contest :P

I agree with Chaze if you don't like any of them just save the prize for another contest, just award the winner with the VIP tag.

I definitely like several of them, I just feel they are incomplete. I think that they could all be improved and not even with much work. The entries were definitely awesome to see and I really enjoyed seeing all of them. The reason for the idea of the contest extension is because how several submissions seemed like they were in a half finished state and I thought perhaps the deadline was way too short. People are certainly welcome to still submit logos, teeshirts and trailers and the submissions could be what is used, but as far as this contest, it seems pretty clear that everyone is set to move on. I have almost finished my judging, I'm just stuck on the logo. Take care and have a goodnight :D
