And as Dokter Bob said, SOTW is the place for artistic ability, not for poorly drawn stick figures attempting to make a joke.

Agreed. Maybe we could just have a couple of themed weeks for stick figures/animations.

It's more humourous than a signature about voldemort (I'm not launching a personal attack Maiden, just using it as an example)

True, but only because it's a blatant rip-off of The Mysterious Ticking Noise.

Either way, you should judge sigs by their art, not their humour. In a case where two sigs are artistically equal, then you can consider other minor factors.

He didn't claim any originality. He made a sig, which he even said, was to make it up to 3. I give up on this argument because it will go on forever. I just wish everything about this site was a bit more lighthearted. Oh well, we can't all have what we want.

I think Kenny does have a point here. The forums can be a bit boring sometimes.


So here's what I think we could do:

I think we should have a periodical Worst Sig/Fun Sig week that would occur maybe once every month or two... I think that would make Sotw interesting and not as bland...

I was fine with Ryan's as (although I didn't get the jokes :oops: ) his signatures were made to be funny. There's a difference between a signature that is funny and a signature that is entered to be funny. Those were the rules and we have taken appropriate action to enforce those rules. Please understand that it is rather impossible to judge whether these signatures should be disqualified or not based on the current set of rules - while they may fall short of one, another one or two negate them.

I think it's just going to have to be made black and white for everyone in that a line must be drawn - I'm afraid half of you are going to like it and half are not, so don't come after me or anything - and I'll give more details on that tomorrow when I'm in a more conscious state. I will take your arguments into account and see what I can come up with in order to suit as many people as possible. I'll present the options first and take opinions onboard before making any implementations.

I will say at this point that I believe I'm swaying easily in the direction of a more serious SOTW. While this was actually far from my original viewpoint, the fact that we now have public voting is about as relaxed as it gets, and any more freedom is only going to encourage abuse... which, quite frankly, I've seen enough of already.

Edit: I should also apologise for my tone in a few posts in this thread; I haven't meant to offend anyone, but some of the arguments have been rather frustrating to me. Getting too old for this job... :roll:

I know half you you guys will take it the wrong way, But still I'm going to post it.

Do you even know the meaning of the word funny? Do you realise what should be considered as a funny sig?

Why everytime someone says a funny sig it's always seems to be stickfigures drawn on MSPaint? Does that mean a sig must be poorly made to be funny? I think not

Look at MQ's sig, a really nice looking Harry potter releated signature with an hidden (well not really hidden, it's actually really obvious XD) Michael Jackson render. You get it now? You can make something amazing with a funny touch

In all honestly, I don't consider stickfigures shooting their head saying ''OMFG PKED U DED LULZZZZ'' funny. I call it Spam.

I couldnt agree more with

True that.

And whenever you say 'oh but it takes some time to make the frame and animation bla bla bla'
This is rubbish, half of them are made with pivot and takes less than 5 minutes.
They simply drawn a few stickfigure pictures with Paint, then throw them in pivot, Upload all the pictures, Place them in the right order. Then save and Post.

Now if someone makes a well drawn humorous sig, that's different. If it's will well made then it will be fine?

Oh man, Chiefy. This reminds me of the old days when there was a huge fight over allowing text-only signature. I'm probably dead last to really give my opinion on this, but I find that a lot of the "poorly designed stick figure" signatures aren't made with any god's honest effort. They're made to look crappy because that's part of the humour. See this?

Image

It's funny and it looks awful. It may have taken a while for its creator to do the animation to it, but in the end..it's meant to be posted on forums as a "lol look at this" type of thing. In a competition where craftsmanship and creativity are encouraged, these type of images fall short.

No one is saying "Don't post funny things. We're all a bunch of artistes with bugs up our asses." There are plenty of ways of adding humour into a signature that also happens to be well-made. Give it a try before flipping out.

Exactly. You've demonstrated that perfectly. :P
