2006-10-02 [nober]: Help! I am confused! How does this contest work? Do you make a drawing of your own made-up council member? Are there council members who exist who we are supposed to draw?? Lemme in on this one...
2007-02-15 [Once upon a dream]: I dont have a scanner, If I can take a picture and I think it came out good...May I enter it??
2007-02-16 [Zab]: The rules say no tho... but I do agree with you iippo...
2007-02-16 [iippo]: The rule is a quality issue because not all know how to take a good photo... It's impossible to tell the difference between a good digital photograph and a scan, anyway. So if the digital photo is good quality, just put it up and don't tell anyone it's not a scan :P
2007-02-16 [Once upon a dream]: Hahaha, okay! Thankyou so much! ^^
2007-03-13 [Mikie9191]: *iippo said "It's impossible to tell the difference between a good digital photograph and a scan, anyway". This is FACT! I spent the first 3 years of my professional life in a repro house doing (amongst other things) flat copy of images and text. If the subject is well lit, the results can surpass the quality of an entry level scanner :D
For best results get your original flat and position 2 lights at 45 degrees either side of your subject. Alternatively, use a bright windowsil :P
2008-05-13 [SilverFire]: O_O Good grief, has it really been that long? >_< Damn time.
2008-05-14 [iippo]: Sorry, I'll get onto that ASAP >.<
2008-07-23 [SilverFire]: Question: is 'fanart' allowed in this contest? As in... *thinks of example* Say if I drew Cali as a sailor scout from Sailor Moon? :P Would that be allowed, or no?
2008-07-23 [Lady of Lore]: Hmmm....good question and interesting idea. I would think it would be okay since it a portrait of a council member and as long as it still fits that I think it would be okay. Of course others may disagree (:P I still have some drawings of myself in sailor moon style from years ago)
2008-07-25 [iippo]: I'd say it's okay, but I would recommend asking the subject of the portrait first (unless you know they really love Sailor Moon and would be utterly chuffed to be drawn as fanarty thing).
I'd also maybe give the councilperson1 the right to veto fanart portraits... Like, if they really hate pokemon and someone draws them as a pokemon, they have the right to have it removed from the list of portraits (the whole "unrepresentat
1 Your mac suggested that word. It's a funny word so I'm going to use it from now on. All the time. Even when it's not at all relevant.
2009-01-12 [Lady of Lore]: Click on the link for the page Ramirez is on and then edit the page. Find where Ramirez is and add your entry after any others and number it as so. Does that help?
2009-01-12 [FamousPanda]: yes thank you, I had already submitted it a while ago, but i couldn't figure out what to do because Ramirez didn't have a page.
2009-02-19 [Hedda]: Ouch, that was a big alarm. I hope I didn't annoy people too much.
I think new members find this fun. It used to be pretty popular before, but it was a little forgotten until now.
2009-02-19 [Mortified Penguin]: I hate you guys... tempting me with shiny badges...
2009-02-19 [Flisky]: Ahh!! The shiny badge!! No!!
Now I'll have to do it because it was an alarm...But who to draw...Hmmm...
