    Oh fuck the contest love, I hope you'll get through that with the least amount of pain as possible. No hard feelings whatsoever, just get well. There'll be other times to team up, but there's one of you momentarily.

    @Misha, I look fabulous =) I'm not sure what the thing on her breasts is supposed to mean tho, it looks a bit clustered, but that might be just the viewing angle. Looks nice overall =)

    I think I'll just drop out completely, there not being enough time left on the clock, and having most of people I'd collab with taken already.

    Unsubbing from thread, and waiting for the poll.
    Good luck guys.

    Just shortly about the "off-topic" contest discussion: As Hive contests is mostly meant to be an excuse to make something and have fun/learn something while doing it, I cannot see a reason to put much limit on feedback. Sure extremely detailed replies that basically design/create the resource in question would be pointless. But suggestions about adding more shading or consider a potential leak is not something I see a problem with - again as long as its learn by doing. Not describing in detail where and how to create the shade, but let the person in question know that it might be missing, and thus e.g. give an opportunity for a new experience.

    Shame, but understandable given the circumstances, at least Misha's team ensures that you are here per representative.. Not much reason to unsub? Or is it not to ruin the surprise?

    Darn man, best of luck with it and here is to a speedy recovery with as little pain as possible.

    Apparently, when you unsub it doesn't prevent people quoting you throwing an alert.

    @RED BARON Well the team left and I can't be bothered to find a new one, not much reason for me to stay here. I won't see anything that I will not see in a month when poll's up.

    It is our moderator's jobs to make contests as fair as possible, when "feedback" is dished out at random there is no
    way of asserting the level of fairness this behaviour fosters. Do not blame them for trying to make it equally fair and
    winnable for everyone who enters. This is a question of equity, not of fun. Fun is what you make of it, there is ample
    opportunity to have fun in a competitive environment without a level of feedback which makes the contest inherently
    biased. The administration approves of the actions of the moderators.

    Each team should give feedback to every team otherwise, it's not fair, I agree. Thing is, only two teams have put forth WiPs, from what I remember and the entries list says.

    Contest ends on the 22nd, so there is still a lot of time for WIPs.

    So why a contest thread at all then? it will always be random and uncontrollable anyways. just lock the thread then, let the contestants send a wip of their works to the host and you're done.

    the strategy followed here is directly contradicted by the fact that you have to upload your stuff in the ressource section. Say I'll finish my stuff tomorrow, I'll get way more feedback till the deadline then others. or do you want to do it like in the thread and check every ressource thread for possibly too much feedback? good luck on that.

    Well, WiPs should be seen by all contestants for proof reasons not only by the judges.

    One of the reasons this rule exists is because a lot of great resources come out of contests, and it is sort of a shame to have them just rot in an arena thread.

    We've been working on a big revamp for the Arena section at the moment (mostly IcemanBo), and this issue was brought up. The best solution in my opinion is to automatically lock the thread of a resource when they select the Contest Entry tag. The issue is that this will require some work on Ralle's end, so as of right now, the rule we had agreed on has actually been posted in the original post of the contest since it started:

    Your resource thread will be locked until the contest is finished. Then again, no one's stoping someone from messaging you privately about feedback on your resource.

    As it was free to the team however they wanted to interpret their chosen user, we went less for the modelling side of his "personality" and more for his troll side :wink:

    well i am done .u. I completed what i wanted to make and should probably post it in the resource section tomorrow. can't say i'm completely happy, since i had to assemble, wrap, animate, and tweak all of the model myself. but its cohesive, works ingame, and has everything i wanted to add

    although somehow i've managed to generate 2-3 glitches that i don't have a clue how to fix Ouo but that'll have to wait, for this darn thing to be done and dusted
