    1. please think about what you've written
    => was not my own descision, I did it together with the other judge.

    I won't judge anything again: No time, and no sense, since only 2 people failed to follow rules!

    Quick explination of the situation - Pharaoh_ (and I think certain others, too) were disqualified as they have not made a passive ability but instead 4 active abilities. This rule was changed during the contest and apparently the contestants who got a DQ because of this didn't know about it. Now we are in this situation: Should the disqualified contestants really stay disqualified or should they get their chance as well as changing rules during contests is according to several users prohibed?

    I think you should decide :eek:

    You might want to add that the main post was not updated with the rule change. (From what I have understand.)
    It was just a post in the thread on some page.

    I know perfectly well what I wanted to write, and wrote it as such. Take offense to it if you'd like, but what you have done is wrong in many cases.

    They were DQ'd because even after being given permission to make 4 active abilities, xD turns around and changes the rules, and doesn't notify them.

    Okie doke, thanks guys

    xD.Schurke couldn't update the first post though because Xiliger? (I think) was the one who made the first post. (Even still, Schurke could've PM'd me to update them)

    Yeah...

    so...

    Let me make it easier for you Pyritie, your choices are to either do nothing and eventually let this thread die, approve the action that Schurke and TRD did for all future contests (which is creating a rule without notifying you or the host to make it official, not to mention giving false "ok"s.), or tell Schurke to judge the 2 entries he falsely disqualified.

    See, as we all have said, Schurke is at fault, and should rejudge them.

    Wait wat. I was almost done D:

    Well, xD.Schurke pretty much gave the same ratings as I did, though I was a wee bit more asshole-ish on the triggering/scripting part :D

    That's what I think as well. The change of rules was irregular and no one should be disqualified with such arbitrarity. It is utterly unfair, even if the contest is just for fun.

    xD.Schurke did one really detailed judging. I think that the only thing that should be done is judging the ones left, that were unfairly disqualified. As well as their work shouldn't be laid to waste, nor should the judge's effort so far.

    When you learn to use proper insults instead of referring people to kids, and when you learn to not trick people of their time & effort, it is then you will be allowed back into this chat.
    That is all I have left to say to you.

    In fact you are the one that opens himself to blame here and loses a lot of sympathy from the community. The way you defend your postition is highly inappropiate.

    You sure don't act like a 19 year old, Schurke.

    u dont get it, you all say redjudge it, since its unfair? the whole contest should be repeatet this way: 25 Didnt have the chance to do a "passive one" and those 2 didnt do some since they cant read 2 pages further. I'm impressed how childish you guys think

    I only lose sympathy from those who start flaming and get insulting (see previous posts), and for those I react in the same way: I don't care about them, those I care about in this community can argue about things without calling other persons jackass/bastard etc. and those also understand my position.


    I judged this contest in my freetime I barley got and those kind of detailled reviews dont just take 5 hours, so I did my best to be fair to everyone, if this included disqualifying since we (repeat WE the judges) decided to make a more challenging rule , and others can't read some pages further, you and I have to live with this desicion, since allowing it for 2 people wouldnt be fair for 25 others. I didnt disquallify them 'cause I don't like them, but because I think they didnt match the proper rules.

    But next time one of those flaming kiddys here may can judge a contest with 20+ entries.

    All in all one can say there are some guys here in this thread start to get insulting, even they didn't enter this contest or are in any way conected to it.

    The only childish thing I see is that there seem to be one who does not stand up for making a mistake in the contests procedure and admit he did it.
