:shock: ouch! :shock: Although if you mean 10k for code then sounds ok to me :P

Lol, but seriously though, maybe some webmastery-type comps, but mostly just something more accessible to everyone. Even a coding competition would tend to favour certain people.

I think B_heyer (might be wrong) suggested a basic tags only comp - that would have been a great example because most of the members can have a go, and no-one <i>really</i> has a specific advantage....

I'm not looking for a competition that I can win, just a competition where no single member, or group of members is favoured.

So I recon a web template with a criteria that anyone can do:

1) Code no greater than 8k

2) Images no greater than 10k (yeah not easy is it but then you don’t have to be too talented in arts but have a good eye for design!)

3) Topic: Erm Ozzu chooses from children’s, youth, networks or any other chosen

Sounds good, but super-efficiency still falls under certain people's specialities lol.

the one I was thinking of was something like just using newbie tags:

p, center, font - you get the idea. No CSS, No JS, limited html attributes. It doesn't favour anyone, because very few of us ever try to do something like that. It's totally useless, but thats what makes it open to everyone. We all have the skills to participate (other than the wysiwyg whores, but stuff them - if they can't be bothered to learn the basic basic tags then it's their own fault they get left out :lol: ).

IMHO it would be more interesting to see what people can come up with given limited resources, and dumped in an alien situation, rather than see what people can do given unlimited resourses, doing what they do all the time.....

A while back I remember y'all did a lil competition on "textures". I propose a competition on "emotions". I myself do not create digital art. But, I love coming here and looking how incredibly talented a lot of you are!

Maybe Axe or someone could pick up this thread and give out the particulars for a competition.

Just a suggestion.

Sound good?

How about a photomanipulation contest using ImageMagick. :) No photoshop. Whoever creates the most useful application wins.

But what is there to win anymore? The points system has been done away with.

I gave b_heyer a suggestion for the next photo competition when I won the last one...

I'm still waitin' for the next one to start, lol.

But there's been some big changes here at Ozzu... like gvs says, the points system is gone, but it was never about the points. It was all just about having fun :)

b_heyer will get a competition going again when he gets back :)

I'd participate if the competition were about something other than photography or graphics. That seems about the only thing anyone wants to compete about...

Well, I'm all for a competition on my genre of art. I'm up for a good challenge. I'd take it only as something to do, practice, and experience.

Well, I found some quotes from some of our beloved moderators:

I have nothing against the graphics board or the photography comps, but IMO, the competitions board is a little bit removed from the "webmaster" concept, with it being so strongly focused on graphics and photography ;)

unfortunetly, there thave not been many non-graphic orriented suggestions of what to do.

also, most people prefer graphics comps as you can keep and use (look at, put it somewhere) the results

coding-scripting comp stuff CAN be reused, but it has to be adjusted and editied to work, you would also get alot of people handing in very simalar entries


I do however agree that we need more non-graphic comps

in retrospect to the "reward" question:

a fall of fame page would be a good idea, simalar layout to the [url="'meet the mods'"]http://www.ozzu.com/moderators.php[/url] page, only:
Code: [ Select ]
Comepition  |Winner    | Photo
           |          | 
Photo #125  |IH8Purple  | :D
tennis # 32  |IH8Purple  | :P
etc....       |IH8Purple  | ;)
  1. Comepition  |Winner    | Photo
  2.            |          | 
  3. Photo #125  |IH8Purple  | :D
  4. tennis # 32  |IH8Purple  | :P
  5. etc....       |IH8Purple  | ;)

Competition request: Most intricate geometric shape created using CSS.

Rules would be:
1. The document must be HTML 4.01 Strict or XHTML 1.0 Strict compliant - it must pass the validator at http://www.htmlhelp.com/tools/validator/ (not validator.w3.org because that gives errors for things such as the server not sending a Content-Type header.)
2. Judging is to be done with an up-to-date Gecko rendering engine - up-to-date meaning the latest milestone release of Chimera, Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Mozilla, or Galeon.
3. No elements except DIV, H1, and P are allowed in the BODY element.
4. Only one H1 and one P are allowed - as many DIVs may be used as desired. -- the H1 should contain the title of your work; the P should contain at least your name.
5. Polygons must be resizable with the user's font-size.
6. Judging will be by voting.

An example of the concept: http://www.tantek.com/CSS/Examples/polygons.html
