Title: Character of the Month: January 2019 Nominations
Post by: Jmorphman on February 10, 2019, 08:02:21 am
In this thread you will be nominating characters from the month of January 2019 that you believe are worthy to be recognized as Character of the Month. These nominations last until February 25th.

Read these rules and guidelines. (http://mugenguild.com/forum/topics/cotm-nominating-voting-and-suggestions-127507.0.html)

Every couple of days a list will be created and updated to feature the nominations progress. The list will include: Who's a candidate and how many motions other characters have. If twenty candidates are reached before the 15 days are up, then voting will start early.

- Only nominate up to 4 characters
- Read the thread
- The numbers next to each nomination represent each character's current nominations
- Only 3 nominations are necessary for each character


IF EVEN ONE PERSON MESSES UP AND DOESN'T FOLLOW THE RULES, I'M GONNA DESTROY THE ENTIRE FORUM

Why do not do the same with the stages?, Many stages are released per month and many are so good that their authors deserve recognition. It's just a suggestion

We even made it so the Stage contest was held every 4 months; still didn't generate much interest (http://mugenguild.com/forum/topics/quarterly-stage-competition-voting-q414-164521.0.html), sadly. :(

Yes. Technically, the edited character being nominated should be more than just a quick fix or palette change, but there's no hard and fast rules about any of that. We trust that the people nominating that character aren't just putting up a palette swap character, and even if they did, it'd take 2 more people voting to get that character into the contest.

O.O every 4 months? that is a long time considering the number of stages that are released each month, many would pass by, it would be better to do them per month with the same theme to choose a character and each user to show at least one image or video of the stage per se some did not know them

Post by: Jmorphman on February 18, 2019, 03:00:26 am
We tried monthly at first, and there wasn't enough nominations! Quarterly was the last resort, and even that didn't work. There just isn't enough interest among the general user base to vote in stage competitions, sadly.

Maybe something like 'Release of the Month' contest would be a better idea.
People could nominate any release like full game, stage, screenpack, character etc.
Don't you think it sounds fair?
Just food for thoughts.

Post by: DeathScythe on February 23, 2019, 09:01:01 am
It looks interesting, but I think people would care more (or even only) about characters. Plus, characters are way harder and more time consuming to make than a stage or screenpack, I think it wouldn't be "fair".

Don't get me wrong, I also would love to see SotQ back or even a new contest to include more than just stages, but from what we already experienced, they probably would not pay attention to it, saddly.

(...) characters are way harder and more time consuming to make than a stage or screenpack, I think it wouldn't be "fair"(...)

I agree with you and I'm sure that amount of work put into the release is one of the main criterions that determines people's votes.
That's actually the reason why I'm thinking it WOULD be fair.

Full games would get more attention than characters, characters would get more attention than stages etc. On the other hand, we have creators like Tatsu. His stages are exceptional - they show incredible artistic taste and attention to details. I think his creations could easily compete with some of the characters in this type of contest.

I don't want to turn this into a disscusion and derail the thread even further, but personaly I think that formula of this contest is a bit obsolete and could be expanded/improved.

Sorry to dissapoint you, but that also was already made and it didn't work. The "Contribution of the Month" included every piece of work that weren't characters (stages, screenpacks, etc), and even with that it didn't last than a couple of months. This kind of contests seems to work with characters only for some reason

Okay, two things wrong with your post...

1. Two of those are already nominees.

and 2. Lou was released THIS MONTH. All characters that are nominated MUST HAVE BEEN RELEASED on January.

Look, the only reason why I did my nominations in the first place was so people could have more characters to vote then they usually do nowadays. I've looked at some of the past CoTM votings and the lack of over ten characters depressed me a little bit.

You guys don't have to count my nominations if you don't want to, and I won't force you to count them in either.

Well, he's not in charge of the COTM, but for me there's no problem with these nominations

Also... is Gui still in charge?? Or JM is the only one who manage this now??
