Another thing to keep in mind ywkls is that this contest was considered dead for some time before me and Anthus took over. It is often quite difficult to get people's confidence back into these types of projects after things like this.

 

It'll take time for many people to even take this contest seriously again I believe. I am hoping though that mine and Anthus' contributions to this contest will get the steam back into it, but I'm certain there are a lot of skeptics out there today who are in doubt and that's completely understandable with the current state of contests in general in PureZC. 

 

If I recall correctly, S:CA isn't doing it's best either nowadays. Also, I believe the random theme contest got less submissions than anticipated as well. 

 

This is something I was well aware of when I joined, and I am okay with this. I will continue to do my part in keeping the vigor in this contest alive until community interest truly wanes.

Yeah... I've actually thought about entering S:CA a few times recently, but my problem is that I simply can't make a screen that I'm not going to use. (The same thing is true whenever it comes to an enemy.)

 

I considered participating in the two-week random theme contest too, but decided that I had too many other things on my plate at the moment. Plus, I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to think of any way to fit the theme.

 

Those things being said, I'm nowhere near ready to give up on EOTM. Hopefully, things will continue to go well for it.

As long as people remain confident in this project, I don't think it will be going anywhere for awhile yet. This is why I believe it's important to have confident hosts as well. People who can continue to say "We have something great here", it prevents people from feeling discouraged. Even though neither me or Anthus are boasting in extreme confidence in things, I'm certain we have enough to convince the message "Hey, this can still work!" and we hope to continue to provide quality work as such. 

 

Not saying the last hosts were not confident, oh no I'm certainly saying the opposite. If it weren't for David and Eddy this contest may have been gone ages ago. We hope to we can provide everything you've come to expect that David and Eddy has brought into this contest all with our own special touch, such as the minor changes we've made so far. 

 

With that said, no changes are planned right now outside of what has already been changed. 

 

I must remind everybody that we still have 2 entries so far and only a couple of days left until the deadline. We hope to at least see one more entry by then.

Submitted the other enemy I thought about using for this. I've got a third, but that seems like too many for me in one month; just to encourage participation. I know of at least one other person who was considering participating, but whether they will or not is another matter entirely.

 

I'll just hang onto that third enemy for the time being and maybe submit it later if it fits the contest.

So I complete forgot today was deadline. Since I am a little late I am posting this now giving everybody roughly around 24 hours to get their last submissions in. You got until this time tomorrow to get your submission in if you already haven't.

Yep, I work til 5 PM EST tomorrow, so it should be up shortly after that.

 

And don't worry, I won't move my own topic to the wrong contest's drop-box this time, and have a minor panic attack about it. :D

Closing this discussion topic now.

 

We will not be accepting anymore entries. I'm happy to announce that we have 5 entries again this month! I'll be recording later tonight after my son goes to bed and provide everything needed for Anthus to create the polling topic.
