This went fairly well. A critique of these events:
Heath should have won first. Not my vote, but he won fairly, and made a great sig.
Energy should not have won second. Sorry, but there were 5 or 6 more worthy candidates imho. I also don't agree much with voting on principle, which is why I believe no GFX members should enter.
and as for trunky: There should be something added to the rules that says "Only a name and possibly subtext should be added" to guard against things that distract from the sig, like a little poem. You got a poem, share it somewhere else. We're voting on graphics. However, if this rule was added, I do not believe he should have been disqualified. Additions to rules help safeguard against further misconduct, and must not affect the contest they were made in. Age-old judiciary principle of "from now on, etc" as a fair reponse to breaking of "should have been there" rules.
Regarding DW3fan: Not very inspiring moderatory conduct. The way moderators act influence the way their successors act, and the GFX team/mods (amirite they're the same?)
have not ever been models of good use of power. Just a thought.
What he did wasn't acceptable at all, but is changing the rules and disqualifying him from this contest any less unacceptable?
if men were angels, no government would be necessary. If men were to be governed by angels, we would not need any controls upon our government. Alas, as neither is true, someone must always be watching.
