    All of us here recognize his great talent in drawing. Your opinion will always be seen as constructive criticism, and very relevant.

    Nobody will hate you =X

    That^
    I guess he has 2 problems, one of these or both
    1. People will hate him for his opinions and judging
    2. He has problems in real life and is too busy to judge at the moment.

    P.S. Will this contest be okay with 2 judges just in case? Just asking.

    Yeah, I'm afraid this doesn't go as easy as that :p

    You do realize that judges that hadn't taken up their duty in the past, have been banned as future judges from the Arena, right? No, I am not saying that you will, but there has to be a reason to let it go.

    I never did. Ever.


    I dont want to judge, because I am lazy. Only by starting to judge first entry I got bored. All of this text to type with explaining of what peoople did right.. and what they did wrong.. I just want to skip it. But I cant. I must give details, give points to people, explain the way I think and stuff.. too much trouble.

    Why wouldn't it be okay? Two different judgings are enough.
    Well, here's the problem I see at hand: You (not you per se, but admins/mods in general) never stated any deadline for judges to withdraw themselves. I did not see such a thing in the rules. Anywhere. Sure, the timing is unfortunate, but it's not breaking any written rules.

    I would have liked NFWar to judge aswell, for various reasons. The most important one was that he has YEARS of experience, great skill, entered several previous contests, shows critical thinking and gives valid feedback. All of those points would have made his judging one of the most vital and reliable ones.

    Did I say that he is breaking any rules? And by the way, there should be no 'deadline', because a) that will show people that they are able to withdraw whenever they feel like it (with no specific reason - "I am bored of giving a review" is not an excuse, really - you were supposed to know what your task of judging was, in the first place), b) you shouldn't apply as a judge, if you are unsure of what it takes to actually judge.

    P.S. This is not an abstract discussion with NFWar, as I really respect him and I consider him as a friend; I am just generally speaking, but given the circumstances, it has been shaped a bit more.

    Did I accuse you of accusing him of doing that? That was a general statement.
    Could you elaborate on a)?
    I don't see how a defined deadline for possible judges to withdraw themselves shows contestants their will of doing so. It would merely be a nice "think before you apply" pointer. Getting accepted as a judge is not necessarily binding, so a defined deadline would make sense.

    See, the whole "Can I be a judge?" thing is for cases like this. There are those that can't provide an insight of what they see (inability to pick the right words, inability to perceive those 'details' that the common eye ignores, etc.), the ones that are competent to provide decent reviews, but they only have a basic knowledge in the fields, thus unable to make suggestions that go beyond their skills and finally, the ones that are experts in their fields, but several random things prevent them from shedding their light of expertise in the public [our case].

    Anyway, deviating from the topic already. Post a VM, if you want this further discussed.

    Apheraz and Sind obviously have the best quality of icons, which surprises me because they aren't in 1st and 2nd place. But I voted Fjury, for the originality.]

    Also Marcos DAB voted for himself? Isn't that grounds for disqualification?

    Oh sure, let's screw a contestant for a mistake that was actually announced.

    Or let's do what Pharaoh_ said, or, even better, let's try and program the polls so that they forbid self-votes in the future? Bah, screw idea #3, too much work, won't get done anyway.
