    Ok, so here's my idea. Many people work on their profile a lot, making the background, color match, etc. So, I've thought I should submit this as an contest idea.
    Ok, so what contestants are to do:

    -The background;
    -The font/color/size/etc.;
    -Borders;
    -Headers/Footers;

    Only the Background has to be a custom picture You designed. Copy'n'pastes are alright, but you must modify the pic. It should be unique, and it would be a little refreshing to work on your profile for a change.

    What'cha think guys?

    IF you guys say it's useless to other people if we do this, tell me if Music and Concept-art isn't useful to others than you.

    Interesting contest idea - definitely non-conventional compared to others.
    I can't see this being a huge major type contest but I'd be interesting if anything just to see how it'd go

    Frankly, why is this more of a waste of time than art contests?

    Or music contest? No one has got any use from them, but we still have them. We have them because it's just... well, for rep. No fuck would draw anything if it was not for rep.

    I don't do anything for rep really. Obviously I'm psyched about the acceptance and appreciation of others though, it's always nice to be appreciated.
    Plus, I've met really intellectual members with close to no reputation whatsoever, and I've met idiots with significantly more shiny stones flashing below their post count.

    I highly doubt the actually experienced artists on the site draw for the rep

    It's most likely they do it for the intangible but all-so-desirable appreciation of others.

    lol

    I was gonna say I could take part in this contest but then I saw the custom pic design req so, yeah now editing my post that I won't. I'm fan of quality by any means such as real pic than drawn/gimp-ed/photoshop-ed ones. :) Too much time spent on forums lately killing my training time.

    I draw all the time, for no REP, so your statement is wrong.

    I draw myself.... Oh God, the whole time i just want to say no other man has any use of us drawing things... right? OR music... I don't think people'll use our music in their games, neither our drawings. So, this is just-for-fun contest not involving warcraft 3, just like the other 2.
