    are we doing madness or are we doing the decathlon? I want to make sure we're all signing up for the same thing.

    it's my opinion to do away with MM and try the decathlon for this year...if it doesn't work, the MM comes back.

    I'll give it a try this year.

    Although if it's a decathalon I can't count on getting knocked out early.

    How many events will this be? How often? I assume it will take place in March.

    Count me in.

    I agree with the decathlon format as well. I will miss the bracketed tournament but as LeftEye and I know, it is a damn nightmare to coordinate.

    MM decathalon recap

    7-10 "events"

    event will be a specific of challenges(touching up a photo, Surealisim, freestyle, etc.) one per time period. at then end of each time period everyone votes, the more votes the better your place, the better your place the more points you get for that event.

    At the end of all events person with the most points wins.

    Silver,

    My 2 year old thinks your avatar is very funny. He won't stop pointing and laughing while I'm reading some posts. I hope he doesn't really understand what's happening there and actually finds that funny.

    I'm in. I'll be gone for part of the first week of March and might not be able to participate then, but would love to the rest of the time.

    When do we get this started (March obviously) and has there been any formal talk of events?

    We should pick some events. The following have been suggested so far:
    - touching up a photo
    - Surealisim
    - freestyle
    - typography

    Other ideas:
    - Pixel Town
    If you all remember Pixel Town, this would be a fun thing to bring back for one round. We could start with a base town and add to it.

    - Photo collage: must incorporate 3 or 4 stock images
    - Lens flare
    - Vector Art
    - Fables and Fairy Tales: Tell a classic story in your image

    Great ideas so far...

    some might be a bit difficult to turn around quickly within the time-frame (like the PixelTown one - but that would be fun!!). It would depend on the time-frame for each...if it's all going to be done in March and there will be 7-10 "events" that's 2+/week...but I've cleared my entire March schedule just for this...

    Here are a few other ideas:

    tilt-shift
    superhero-ize or zombie-ize a portrait or self-portrait
    magazine cover/movie poster

    im thinking we should have a coloring event.

    Take a 2 tone image(Black and white, or similar type image) and then everyone makes it color. would be fun to see what some people come up with.

    good idea...also thought about (depending on how many people are in this), separating a single image into as many grids as there are people and everyone "stylizes" their grid and then the whole thing is put back together...

    i dont think the pixel town, and the grid image flashpipe suggested are ideas that would work.

    its still a competition and break an image down and giving everyone something differnt to work off of could get some people an edge. and with the pixel town i have no idea how we would even get that to work.

    1- touching up a photo (everyone recieves the same old damange photo)
    2- Surealisim (2-3 stocks then make it sureal)
    3- freestyle (a pool of stocks that must be used go ****ing crazy)
    4- typography(Typeface must be featured heavily, judging of the image based on how it fits in with the image)
    5- Paint by numbers(everyone recieves the same stock 2 tone image which then is colored in by each participant)
    6- Magazine Cover/Movie Poster sounds like it could work
    7- Fables and Fairy Tales: Tell a classic story in your image

    with only what 12 days till march we would need to have a final list and particpants pretty soon.

    Good point silver...keep forgetting it's a competition...

    Looks like a good list to me...squeezing all that into 31 days seems like plenty...

    So, do you get points on each one and then drop your lowest score or something?

    I think the final list, the participants, judges, etc. should be all finalized before the 1st so we can get started right away...

    Would each one get it's own equal timeframe, or would some be longer than others? Would they have a deadline and the next one start early if everyone submitted their "finals" before the deadline??

    So many questions...
