    A contest that will be held once every month, it will allow people to submit signature images to be voted upon by the public. All of the signatures must match the theme of that month.

    Rules:
    • Anyone can enter and submit a signature.
    • All signatures must be turned in by the deadline.
    • All signatures must be based around that months theme.
    • You may post your signature outside the theme thread and get feedback before submission.

    How it works:
    The theme will be announced in the post BELOW and people will be given a full 2 weeks to prepare a signature for the contest with the following week used for voting. Once you have completed your signature simply post it in that week's theme thread. The thread link can be found in the post BELOW. All old theme threads will be locked afterwards.

    Voting can be done by anyone and you can vote for your own signature, simply because everyone else can as well. After the second week's end the votes will be counted and awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. This may later change to a lower number if we do not recieve enough submissions. Next month's theme will be announced on the day of voting. Go to this thread to suggest themes.

    Everyone may enter and is ecouraged to enter as it helps build graphic skills and unites the community. Even if you are a novice with graphics, your still more than welcome to enter. It wouldn't be much fun if there were only 2 people putting up sigs. =)

    Awards:
    There are none at the moment and it's just for fun. However, will talk with dash and Jeb as see if they would spring for an award medal. Also, once we get the main site back up and running perhaps a small section for the current SotM.

    2 weeks to develop, 1 week for voting.

    since the next theme is announced on the week of voting they get 3 weeks to develop a signature. plenty of time.

    if the signatures go on the main site they will be up for a full month, the last week of the month, and the next cycle of development and voting (3 weeks total).
     
  5. Just wondering is there any size restrictions and anything in particular word wise that sigs should have on them ( ({x}) XoO, etc.) ?

    Well it's freestyle it doesn't have to say anything... but you could if you wanted to. And as long as it is around normal sig sizes, it doesn't really matter.

    in order to keep up with the current deadline that was misposted (but works out anyways as it sets us up perfectly for next week) the first SoTM will end the 15th.

    Well, we have a major influx of new members, so someone could post a thread about who's interested in participating on a regular basis, to gauge if there are enough people.

    I posted in the other thread that I would start it back up if there was interest and only one person posted a response but 2 other people posted sigs so I guess we can start this again.
