    id love to participate, but the likely hood is very low. drama last year, on top of the lack of activity.

    ok...not everyone panic yet...there's an idea on the table that has been submitted by SilverX that us moderators are pondering. We'll get back to you when we iron some things out....


    i think you'll all be pleasantly surprised (as long as it works out).

    here is the Jist of my idea:
    Preface
    March madness as we have come to know it is not going to work. Getting the required number of people is like pulling teeth, and ever year we have drop outs. in a win or go home tournament like MM losing to someone and then having that person drop out is a huge slap to the face.

    My proposal is a decathlon type deal. we have a set number of "events" planned out PS tasks (repair a photo, modify a picture, insane awesomeness etc.) after each "event" we will have the voting, at the end of voting each participant gets a point value based on this rank. Because of the scoring this should make voting for yourself less impactful, no longer is it win or go home, and no longer will people dropping out change the tournament. At the end of the events the person with the highest score wins.

    currently there are two issues:

    Who is interested in participating?

    I would compete
    JuJu in the post above says he wants to do something
    Lefteye i'm sure would join in

    that's 3 people, we would need at least 10. if we get more then ten we would need to either figure out some new way of voting, or have heats.

    and the second problem is the "events" I'm thinking we have a certain number of "events", and possibly have some twist events.


    So what does everyone think?

    Count me in. So that's four.

    The concept, while initially confusing, I could see this as a possibility.

    It's a little early to say with concrete certainty that I'll be in for this new event, but at this point I could most likely do it. Hell even with all of the MM drama last year I'd still prolly participate in it again if it went down.

    So at this point, yeah I'm interested...
    Sigs R4 Suckers! Wait... I mean.... nevermind...

    glad to have you sandy.

    So it looks like we should be able to get enough people to participate!

    count me in.

    photoretouch sounds good, i think you should definitely add criteria for voting as well so it's more about the execution (with that particular one..)

    i'd like to see a typography based event as well

    I'd need to see what my Uni workload was like, but I reckon I'd be up for it.

    the good part about this setup is if you are to busy one week its not going to be the end of the world if you miss it, you can still come back next week.

    However once we set the the roster i dont think we are going to let people join in.

    Just signed up for my first "battle" and I'm not primarily a designer (although I spend LOTS of time in Photoshop and do lots of design), but, if you're looking for battle newbies, I think it would be a great learning opportunity and a chance to diversify...if not, that's cool...I'll certainly watch...
    Love like you've never been hurt, live like there's no tomorrow and dance like nobody's watching.
