We'll be starting play at Monday noon CET.


To make things simpler, as first three days are 1day rounds - make Set 3 Player in an Avatar format. Just simple cropping and colour fiddling, nothing complex.
This only applies for the RR, semis are played through 2 days and all 4 formats are good for 3rd set.

Poiree, I think we should all be harsher with our votes, that way we won't have EVERY match finish 76 76. :lol:

Glad to see everyone's already voted. :)
We'll just wait for Linda and then we're done with voting.

I have to let you know that we'll be moving the deadline a bit.
I usually don't have time before 3 PM CET, so I'll push our deadline 3 more hours forward. :)

Phew, I was in a hurry to post everything, now I can reply to all your questions. :)


"2. you can use 4 sizes of graphics a)Avatar(144x168), b)Signature(800x250), c)Standard(500x350) and d)Poster(500x500) "

Can we change the sizes?
because there are some banners than it dosents look good in 800x250.. so i was thinking just set H:250 and then c and d just free max 800x600

Well, that was kind of the old rule. But people got confused a lot that way.
This way, when you have 4 sizes set, your decision of which format to make is easier, as each format is specific to a different kind of arranging images and perspective.

I do have to say that I'm still not sure what height is allowed for an MTF signature. First I thought it was 100px, then I heard it was 260px, but just recently I put in a 500px image in my sig and it worked. :shrug:
I totally made a mistake and wrote 250px height, when we agreed on 260 before. :o
I'm sorry, I'll change that.

I designated fixed formats so that the game has a well defined frame in which you can work. The designing itself takes up so much creativity and decision-making, I just thought it's easier to work when you know exactly what you're starting with. (if we didn't have fixed sizes, it would take me a half an hour to decide on the exact proportions :o :lol:)


Judge - OUT

Aww, that's a shame. :awww:
But maybe next time. ;)



I have some issues with the scoring system. Maybe it could be looked at again for the next tournament. :shrug:

Yes, I know, that is kind of a problem.

The WTA version has a great system, but the main problem I think, is that it requires a lot of Judges and all the time.
I like how it works there, but there are less people interested in a visual game on this forum then there, so I fear we'd be ridiculously understaffed Judges-wise.
With this kind of scoring, only 2 people can vote on a match and we can still calculate the winner with an okay accuracy.

Also, my biggest problem with that system is that it asks you to decide on your favourite, as you can only vote for one graphic out of the two.
I don't know about the rest of you, but for me that is IMPOSSIBLE. I always find something that I like about each graphic.
Plus the designer gets a little bit more feedback this way.

I've been thinking about how we can stop this 76 76 scoreline, and I think maybe we can do it with just a minor alteration.
Instead of the 1-10 range, we can go with the 1-5 range of grades.

Let's try that for this round and see how it works.
Besides, in most educational facilities all over the world, the basic scoring system is 1 to 5, so it's probably a more intuitive approach for all of us anyway.
About 90% of all grades given out now is above 7 anyway, so clearly that range isn't working. :shrug:

So the new basic scoring system:

1 - Very Basic.
2 - Satisfactory / Basic.
3 - Good. Solid and not bad, but still nothing extra special.
4 - Very Good. Some elements that are great, but overall it has room for improvement
5 - Excellent. Perfecto, no? :p


edit: I feel mean saying this :D but that is a horrendous pic of Rogi in your sig :lol:I think many would agree with you. :lol:
I do love that photo however, he looks all mean, moody, imperfect and a bit murderous. I love him that way. :p
That's actually one of my favourite photos of him ever.
I do like cute and pretty stuff, but grunge is really my domicile aesthetic. ;)
(and I love how that white shirt is too small for him so it shows off his chest :hearts: :o)

Linda should have won, that Tipsarevic graphic was :worship:. I had a huge mental block about that task, I wouldn't have thought of that in a million years... (assault with a deadly racquet... :rolls::rolls::rolls:)
Linda, you should have challenged, a few calls were questionable. :p

Rd3 is our last one day round, semis are played for two days.
It's a shame you forgot, Linda, I was curious about what you'd do with that photo of Novak in the plane... :devil:

I was only happy with my Santoro avatar. But that's more due to Santoro being so extremely :hearts: in that photo.

I know... :help:

But that's just for one match, and the scoreline reflects the graphics, which were very very close in points.

I think we can try this a few more times, it's just one match. If it still isn't working out, I'll have to think of something else.

But you all have to be stricter with your grades. :ras:
Don't be afraid of the 2s. :D
I think most of us judge graphics based on lower criteria. Clearly all the graphics are great, so we just have to judge in that context, try saving 5s for when you're really really impressed, a 2 in this game is like a 7 in the old system basically. :D
Which means a 1 is like a 5/6 in the old system.


Btw, kai., I love your 1st set, I don't know why you're not happy with it. :shrug:
It's kind of similar to what I wanted to do initially, I like how you managed to convey the cold, steel, somewhat sterile atmosphere of modern Dubai under the blazing desert sun. :yeah:
But, unfortunately, I started on my graphic just after Gilles' match so... I think you can easily read my mood from it. :o :lol:

Seams to be something wrong with Imageshack's server.

I reuploaded them into MTF's server.

Btw, if you're tired of imageshack and other hosting sites, you can start uploading your graphics to the forum now.
This rule was initially instituded to get anonymity for authors, but by now everyone can pretty much tell which graphic is whose just by looking at it anyway, so it is not necessary anymore. :)

I don't have a lot of time right now for a proper update, I will do it later, but just to outline the semis:

Since this RR is an exhibition it doesn't matter for semis. (I wrote wrong in the OOP, it's not RR#1 vs RR#3 and RR#2 vs RR#4)
The matches are supposed to be formed by ranking.
So kai. is the first seed.
Since l_mac and I have the same amount of ranking points(AO semis), it's sorted alphabetically. I'm second seed, l_mac third, poiree 4th.

So semis are:

Which means a 1 is like a 5/6 in the old system.

Yeah maybe for IW.. be can figurate something more.. maybe do a brian storm we all 4 and vote :rolleyes: before IW..


Btw, kai., I love your 1st set, I don't know why you're not happy with it. :shrug:
It's kind of similar to what I wanted to do initially, I like how you managed to convey the cold, steel, somewhat sterile atmosphere of modern Dubai under the blazing desert sun. :yeah:
But, unfortunately, I started on my graphic just after Gilles' match so... I think you can easily read my mood from it. :o :lol:

:lol: i dint like it really ..
to much bright-to white i was looking the pics for more tan 30 min ¬¬ and nothingg so i gave up ¬¬..

:lol: i can see ur mood.. thanks than my "player" lost on monday :angel:
btw i lovee it ur banner :worship: the background pic :aplot:
