Well you are a bit off on everything because it doesn't go by votes it goes by how much you submit. This is a way for adam to get more submissions on the otaku. Hehe I already have 4 of the 7 ruby trophies. I have 1 gold and 2 bronze. I will work my way there though threw time. :D

That's a good idea, I'll have to look through my material and see if something I have would work to be polished for that kind of trial.

I have my own issues with getting things done on time too, that's why I'd need someone well grounded, to keep me on task, not so much the other way around.
Those are fascinating pieces, I like the style. I'll have to think about a collaboration for a bit though.

The only thing I dont like of the deadline is findin me dead when I cross is (And belive me,sparring my life will be a common event) .However this might look,I may be the artist to make that writing of yours into a small serie.I think time is correct and I got a nice tool to draw commics now.I even mad eu a sambple of a dragon ,hope u have a look.
If you like the idea,maybe this will be a great start for a ne wproyect.And this pictures only took me a couple of mins.So making my life for the deadlines will be a matter of short time work.

It is nice to see that comments are being considered with more weight than prior versions of the site, that's good for the people who do go out of their way to interact and provide quality feedback for others on the site.
I'm not skilled in quizzes or comics, so those areas are of little interest to me in terms of submissions.
I like to read a comic now and then, and I used to take those quizzes often but without the quiz manager like the old system had, it's a little more tedious to showcase quiz results. From a non-submission point of view, just having something like a quiz manager would be nice, to showcase our results much the way the old sibling site had.
When comics were first added to the site, one of the ideas was to encourage collaboration among writer-type members, and artist members. If that idea could be really played upon and promoted, comics could get more traffic and see a renaissance. I'd gladly collaborate with an artist on a comic if the artist was dedicated to getting the art portions done by deadline.

Sorry I forgot to read this~~
Hehe!! ^^= Yeah, I'm guilty of that. *laugh* Thanks for posting up the stats! I was wondering what it took to get these different levels! Yup, I'm almost to a ruby for comments!!! ^__^ Almost there! I think I have 4800 something! But of course, if it included MyO comments...then goodness, I would have way over, too! It's a shame they don't count those. :(
Ah, I might be close for e-cards, too...I'm not sure. I don't like just using screenshots and writing one-liners. As you can tell, I try to put just as much work into those as I do my wallpapers! *laugh*
Thankies~~ Hehe, I'll be very happy to join the top commenters club!! ^__^ And I would love to help you with making wallpapers sometime! I wouldn't mind~ I wonder how anyone will get all rubies...they would have to be crazy!! D: And you haven't found someone with a ruby for comics? Really? Wow...that must be hard then...and same with fan words, right? I only submitted 2, and I have a bronze.
*hugs* Thanks, angelbest!! Take care~ Good luck to us all with this venture!

It´s great to see you back on the comments Dragon ,it´s been a while.Good to have your ideas because I felt a bit clueless while sorting this out by myself.Well just trying to give a little idea of what are this things and how they work . Yeah on comics the quantity thing is the only hope for sure .The only one I like is the Ruby Tropy for comments,you know how hard I worked on that .
Well I wonder if you have new articles up,I been in so many things that is hard to focuz.Seems school is taking all my time out and it will be good to chat with my firneds when I got the time.
Returning to materia, I think getting those areas into work will request a more deep strategy than just the presented.I mean comics can be really fun but I guess the sumb method doesn´t benefice it´s success .About the quizzes,I think they need more images support to make them work at full potencial.I mean like making a post with at image that represnets the quiz,not just the mere name.
My personal idea ofr motivation will be,rather,a contest or a price ^^ . Some areas of the page need a lot of work to truly shine.I would love to hear your ideas of how to "Resurect" the comic areas and the quizz area.
Yeah thats prob true,but I don wanna get more problems at walls.Yeah I had the idea I could submit my own art with effects but not :3 .
Well you are also a legend now,a lazy legend if you ask me XD .Well legend hope u really send those comments up.If only I had the time I would have em at 7k and not 5 but I cant get all stuff.
The best of lucks with your new work ^^ .

I can't quite figure out the numbers thing for those either, I went around jotting some stuff down and I'm thinking combining the actual submission count (the only rubies I saw in art, wallpapers and so on were on those with over 100 submissions), so it may be a combination of factors that adds up to a trophy. My initial impression of that whole thing is that it leans toward the quantity over quality idea, and there's news of a new "monster" feature that's geared toward the submitters as well.
There's a couple categories that I know I won't be seeing any progress in at all on the trophy angle, comics and quizzes. Those two will be those unsightly "?" trophies on my portfolio.
I don't like the trophy case. I don't think it's an appropriate tool to attempt to motivate people into submitting more works on the site. It's cold, impersonal, and sucks the sense of accomplishment out right out of the creative process. I don't make quizzes at all because they are technical nightmares to plan out before even trying to submit them, and I can't do the kind of repetitious artwork to make comics, so those will always be blanks in my portfolio. Those "blanks" in the trophy case will only serve to alienate and antagonize members who don't have the skill or confidence to submit to the area that shows a blank.

Lol,I have only one ruby trophy,and that's for the huge amount of art I have. XP
And I got a silver trophy for comments...I'm going to comment more here,I want that ruby. 8D
For the rest...Meh,I gave up on wallpapers because they were rejected all the time,lol. XD
But because of our status (otaku legend) arts and such gets submitten immediately,right? Does that also count for wallpapers? Then it won't be so hard anymore,if it's true.

I really agree with the idea of creating things. To tell the truth I create my arts because I like them ,and post them here to share them with my friends. Mainly tend to focus on making someone’s day better with my art and maybe that is what makes me go forward .
Personally, don’t like having question marks on my portfolio, just thought it will be good to finally give a chance to my lost comic project and some of my walls .I still need someone to give me a few tips on creating a wallpaper .I mean ,is the main idea to use a picture, cut it, and add some brushes to it?
Had some troubles with wallpapers long time ago .You actually know the “funny” story, well I have good memories of it . Anyway I don’t think I can really call a wallpaper “mine” at all. Taking someone’s else art and adding some brushes probably wouldn’t be my picture for the cremation of something new.
I even thou that probably someone doing a wallpaper of my art would be a new experience to handle for me. Maybe , it’s just to personal to see it change ,or maybe it’s something else. I would love to hear your opinion on this one.
Somehow it seems this fits on the cards as well, the only think I am very proud is the comment one . My hard work on helping other’s deserved some recognition .Thanks for your comment ,it really made me reflection on something’s .If I want to draw a wallpaper, better let the reason be that I want to do it, not to fill my page with a little image in a calis shape.
Hope to read ,see, comment something in what you took part. Good to have the chance to talk with a friend.
I hope you do Hamster :3 , I been trying to form a little help for you but I guess it´s hard to explain something about a bg with just words.Well maybe some pictures will help but I will have to scan a lot of em .Hummm having a relaxing period now so I guess Im happy.How is chibi and Krokun doing ?
Hope to have a work with you soon :3.

I'll admit that I'm most happiest with my bronze trophy for my Fan Word. Sure, the trophies for my more visually oriented pieces are nice and all, but writing that article about a piece of art wasn't an easy thing to write!
I suspect that I'll never get a gold in my Fan Art submissions because I just take too much time to make a single piece of art. I'm not the fastest artist, so I don't ever expect to reach gold. Oh well, trophies, hugs, and views are not the sorts of things that make me want to create something. I love the process of creating something, and anything else that comes along with it is just a nice extra.
That said, having these won't encourage me to work harder, since I worked hard enough on creating anything before the introduction of trophies; and I'll continue to put effort into whatever I create. If I get some nice extras such as these, I won't disparage them--far from it; I see them more as recognition that the members and staff of this site want to acknowledge the contributions made by anyone to this site. So, well done on your own trophies, my friend!
