    There could be separate GFX and non GFX member competitions, but that may be too much work.

    Would it hurt? We have something that beginners don't, which is (or was) a reason to pursue art beyond winning a SOTW.

    I'm all for the idea. It gives the opportunity for those who join to win and therefore go back to their sections and get more people to do so.

    I'm fine with that idea. I mean I rarely entered anyways. I'm sure if we created a forum wide announcement, advertised SOTW where we can then we should get a good line-up of non-GFX entries.

    i like the idea of advanced stow and non-advanced sotw
    maybe we could also do classing, that way people would be interested in advancing and join more sotw

    We could do classing but then again we "can't" do classing. Like maybe one or two of us are kinda qualified to do so.
    The thing i've been thinking about though is that there isn't any reason to stay after you win or lose the SOTW.

    Classing would create a bit of elitism and you don't want that starting out.

    I believe the GFX team, and other regulars to this section, should make their own different signatures that link to the SOTW Entry/Voting thread and we would vote on whoever's is the best-looking. I think that'd bring more interest to the section. Also, I like the idea of advanced and non-advanced SOTW contests. That'll bring more opportunity to let more people come to the section and try out GFX for once. It would be for the best, because the more advanced people would have more competition and the less advanced people would have a chance to win. And maybe switching up the theme or prizes every once in a while would be interesting.

    We need to work on some new ideas for prizes in that case. I know I haven't been doing the trophies, but I don't think they're "prestigious" enough to entice people to keep entering. Perhaps a new trophy redesign involving more bling and having the winners signature along with their trophy plastered on the front page? I know a lot of forums that do something similar, even non-GFX forums have it. Then perhaps we could have some sort of bi-monthly contest offering Steam gifts or credit as a prize where winners go up against each other to compete for that prize. Hell we can do that for every SOTW with a smaller prize on offer. Kinda stealing James' ideas but I think it could be alright if we work at something reasonable.

    Well yeah without prizes there's no reason to join unless you just like gfx which isn't really the case with most of the rest of the site. The problem we have right now, and have mentioned before is that we don't have any; theres no vip right now, graphics related prizes have no meaning to most people, and other prizes would require us to personally supply them. We can do this sure, but we can't keep it going for very long.

    I do the Contest News so I could do a little segment of SOTW updating, and if you'd like, you could PM me the new prizes and all the other advancements. That'd bring a little more activity back to this section.

    And quite frankly, VIP = better prizes for SOTWs, so more people would like to join in.

    No one is coding VIP at the moment, I could but I'm already devoting enough time to MPGH as is and I really don't feel like going through the hassle of being a VIP coder. No thanks.
