Erm, I'm sorry to be that guy again, but what is the point of removing some frames of an animated .gif from a game and posting it as an entry? 'cause that's what Devyl did. confused.gif

I had no idea it was from Wikia. Technically it'd be considered ripping, especially since nothing was even added. The only time it is allowed to rip artwork or anything that isn't yours is for stocks and renders. And it's better if these graphics are from a website that has non-copyright resources like OfficialPSDs or PlanetRenders, not ripping them from a Wiki or a DeviantArt page. You still have to put some effort into your entry, not just removing a couple of frames.

I don't know if this is really something to disqualify an entry for, but I think it will be discussed with the Forum Leaders. I don't want to sound like an asshole here of course, but we did recently put up SOTW rules which were approved by the Forum Leaders. So they must be followed by everyone who want's to take part in the weekly competitions.

Well damn, Devyl normally does his own thing but I guess he though by editing a gif and removing some frames was acceptable. Unfortunately, it isn't.. but don't worry Devyl, this doesn't make you seem like a ripper or something, just an unfortunate event. Always next time smile.gif

Being he already had afew people vote for him, I think the best thing to do Limitless is to go ahead and disqualify him (remove his signature from entries) and I'll send out PM's for the others to recast their votes (the ones that voted for Devyl). Sorry for any inconvenience.

Edit: PM's sent.

Good eye. I've had the sprite GIF saved for a while now and decided to bust one out for this challenge. Didn't know that would disqualify me though. I was simply under the assumption that if you modified it from its' original content (removing frames and cropping to fit both size requirements in this case for GIFs), the image would still count. Needless to say, I don't mind sitting this one out as I enjoy these challenges. If I vote, will that count or no?

Your count will vote still, Devyl. Again man, don't take this as any bad blood.

But we're under the impression that you have to do a bit more than just remove a frame or two and resize, esp a .gif. As for still signatures, we all know that everyone uses stocks and resources from the net, so it isn't frowned on upon too much. Aslong as someone didn't just take an image and add a border, then it's all good. As for .gif's, we expect alot of your own touches, basically an entire gif made from the ground up or more details that are easily noticed from an original image.

We'll be working on setting up an easy Rules & Guidelines for each SOTW topic to place so that veteran and new members can read and understand better before entering.. sorry for any confusion. We'll have all the kinks worked out soon, so hang in there.

Are you saying my Rules & Guidelines aren't good enough, GW? I got a feeling you're trying to pull the racist card against your own kind! tounge.gif

No problem. I'd rather follow the rules than make a big scene like a 3 year old smile.gif

Nothing bad between us at all. Like I said, I play by the rules and if it eliminates me as a contestant than so be it. There will always be more challenges icon14.gif

my vote:

1: Limitless

2: ElMafias

3: Graven

Good job everyone icon14.gif

*edit* I just read Limitless's post. What the heck is Wikia? I Googled it and all I figured out is that it's a wiki host or something?

Wikia is pretty much the same as Wiki, but anyone can make a page and contribute to it. Much easier to create a page on there than it is on Wiki.
You'll see a lot of video games using it and stuff related to anime or things along those lines.

When I looked at the URL of the image Eagles posted, it said Wikia (http://images.wikia....0/0b/Keesi3.gif)
I looked it up and Metal Slug has a pretty large Wikia page and a list of vehicles in the game, but I couldn't find this plane, tank combo do-hickey.

Edit: Correct me if I'm wrong on this. I don't use either of them very much. blush.gif
