I had a good laugh scrolling through the thread, some images are hilarious :D Thank you all so far, I never expected to get sooo much! Just one thing, you have to kind of make/draw the image yourself. Don't just google it.. That's not allowed. I'm not sure how we're gonna enforce that rule, probably add a status next to every submission after checking it "accepted" or "not accepted" ? Also, when we have ~100 submissions we should probably make a second page, otherwise people with older browser will have difficulties opening the large page. ^^ Bennie (talk ~ fellows) ^^ 06:21, September 2, 2010 (UTC)
I wouldn't mind going through the users who submitted and asking which submissions they are happy with and to check that they are finished and ready to be submitted. Those ones which people are happy with can be moved to another page making the process of sorting them beginning now. I think the longer they are left on this page, the more work there will be later through filtering them. Some questions:
If images were intended to be made by the people who submit creatures (as I thought so but wasn't sure of) then how do we go about this? I don't think many will look here and see this. We can just go to each without their own made pictures and ask them to submit a different picture which they have made. But if it's not made clear that it should be an original image, more people may take the lazy option and use other people's work.
Also, what about people vandalising/adding innappropriate submissions? Beejay 10:08, September 2, 2010 (UTC)
I will add another note in the rules, I did intent people should make the image themselves. Editing an existing tibia graphic is allowed I think, as long as you clearly did something with it. I will make this more explicit in the rules. People vandalizing should be excluded from the contest, get a warning, maybe blocked. Just how we usually deal with vandalizing. Also, I want all images visible on the submission page. Imageshack images can be visible without being uploaded to tibiawiki, but tibiapic images not (I think). So we should upload them.. ^^ Bennie (talk ~ fellows) ^^ 11:44, September 2, 2010 (UTC)
Ok, do you think that images uploaded for the contest should fall under a special name?
E.g. Contest Image by x 1, Contest Image by x 2
Also do you think we should help out the people submitting creatures a bit as well? With the codes for example as a slight mistake can be difficult to see sometimes. Beth Jones 12:37, September 2, 2010 (UTC)
Just a descriptive name like "Elf Airborne by Bennie.png" or something. We can help them technically, if they remove some curly brackets and screw up the template for example. We cannot help them content wise though, not correcting grammar or other mistakes. ^^ Bennie (talk ~ fellows) ^^ 13:11, September 2, 2010 (UTC)
Ok, that sounds good. :) I will try to do a bit fixing with the codes and the names of the people who are submitting, while I have some time today. Beth Jones 13:29, September 2, 2010 (UTC)
http://pokemononline.wikia.com/wiki/Arquivo:Zapdos.gif Well, I guess someone had to make it, just don't know who exactly. Beejay 19:22, September 4, 2010 (UTC)
There are many not self made pictures, just type in google pictures and you will see many same as there on tibia.wikia :P, several of them you can find that was not self made. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Wojtaz91 (talk • contribs). Remember to sign your comments!
So mainly more than half submissions will be rejected.Too bad but too good, less competiton ;P.
Anyway, what's the next step after "accept/reject" process, re-"accept/reject" process in the accepted submissions?

Each user with a rejected status gets a message explaining why. Please understand that some of these not self-made images can be hard to find and may go unnoticed. If it is clear to you that an image accepted, which has had no alterations to it, so it cannot be classed as someone's own image, then feel free to let us know where exactly it is found so that admins can investigate. Thank you.
There is no other stage after the accepted and rejected process, as of yet. A submission is either accepted as following all the rules for the contest therefore is fit to be judged, or rejected, and unfit to be judged. More stages may come but that will not be discussed here. Beejay 12:18, September 5, 2010 (UTC)
I have no knowledge of pokemon at all, so I didn't notice that yellow bird wasn't self made. Administrators, feel free to help with the accepted/rejected process. All other users, feel free to report submissions which are wrongly accepted or rejected. ^^ Bennie (talk ~ fellows) ^^ 18:37, September 5, 2010 (UTC)
