We have the randomthread for that stuff.

No no that was an entry that was made, yeah it might be a bit of a joke entry but that's still valid if people think it's just a joke and others are of a higher quality then it won't be voted for and therefore wll be irrelevant or some people might find it amusing and decide to vote for it, it's all about peoples reactions to peoples entries and you shouldn't be trying to govern that.

Just did, but evenso that is the nature of these competitions it's all about how the voters react to your work, if they don't have any reaction they don't vote, I just don't think it's up to 904 to pick and choose what goes in and what doesn't.

i get what you're saying, I just don't think it's right that people can put real effort into something, trying to make it visually pleasing, then get beat by a funny entry that took like 10 minutes to make.


May I suggest something?

How about a map battle of comedy, the funniest map wins, this could include entries like WhiteDevils, and it would be a break from the norm, once its over, we go back to srs bns as usual.

Thedoctor's lighting, use of colour and interesting geometry won me over, good to see him on the way to victory.

Wouldn't be nearly as fun as you imagine most likely.

in mine you'd spawn on a tiny platform of nodraw textures up in the air. If you turn around you see skybox, if you look down you see skybox. If you look slightly to the left or right you see the map just suddenly end with a few brushes I couldn't be assed to delete sitting out there. The entire scene in most cases is meant to be just for that single shot. Like if you went on the set of Battlestar Galactica it'd look cool from one way, but if you turned around you'd see a black room full of cameras and lights, and if you looked behind a corner in the hallway you'd see the plywood setting it up.

You could jump down onto the platform, but then it's just 4 NPCs saying "Hey Dr. Freeman!" and moving slightly out of your way if you bump into them (but won't fall off the platform. I tried :( )
It's quite simple really. I want to be a professional level designer. I want this to be my job.
