sorry to rain on your parade in this regard, folks
best I can promise regarding member groups is that if a non-promoted member wins 1st prize, he'll be promoted to Colonial as an award.
but we won't have a new member group.
Thanks for understanding Smile

I wouldn't even really care about a reward. I'd want to enter regardless.

Would love to see this happen. As for the issues here are my votes:

- Issue #1: Limit to 3 entries.
- Issue #2: Normally I'd have problem with this rule too, but claiming other people's content is just too toxic to be looked over. Do limit the creation date.
- Issue #3: Poll vote please Very Happy . One of the charms in the contest is following the developments of the voting and polls are fairly transparent.
- Issue #4: Definitely ENB and non-ENB categories. Comparing ENB to non ENB screenshots is very much like comparing Max Payne 2 graphics to Max Payne 3.

This sounds great!

I would just like to suggest doing some sort of theme or setting for them, Wild west for example, something to inspire people to think creatively. The last thing we would want is 100 screenshots of people in cowboy hats, but I find being more specific help's lot's for inspiration.

Some ideas below:
-Criminals and Casinos
-The Dark side ( by this i mean the darker side of fallout; poverty, disease and corruption. This could make for some really compelling images)
-Colours of the Wasteland ( lots of room for creativity here, should get some eye-catching results)
-Micheal Bay ( something along the lines of people with big guns and explosions )

It doesn't have to be any of these of course, just throwing them out there

Also there's another prize Hulks. Please check your PM. DVAted has okayed the idea, and I'm writing a petition to the gfx artists as we speak.

You might also want to replace Cpt. Rex's rules.

1. If you want to really keep the contest as objective as possible. Have contestants PM/email you their entries, and you post them on a New Thread at the time. The only thing identifying the images is either the title of the image (that may also explain the image) or a generic identifier (non-ENB Image 1).

2. People PM you their choices (or use google forms/similar so you dont have to physically tabulate each email response).

3. Contests with multiple categories are not a good idea with the small number of members we have. While its a way to get more people to win, there is also the chance of a single person winning all of the categories.

@drunkenSocrates that's a great idea. I know itsyoshiduh suggested keeping the submissions private, but I didn't think it could work. I'll definitely consider this if other people agree.

+1 for you!  cowboy

Theme recommendation: Hope

Why? Because that's what living in the Wasteland is about. 200 years after the most devastating war in humanity's history, the remnants of our species continue to languish and toil in the desolate wastelands of Earth. They struggle because they have hope, and it's the central theme of our play through(s).

How would this be represented in screenshots? Well if you were to do a screen shot of nature, you could capture trees or a sunrise. You could also take a screenshot of the vault dweller and companions cheering or looking off to the landscape. It's a very ambiguous concept, but I think that's the beauty of it. It allows for a great deal of interpretation. Take a screenshot that you believe best invokes "hope".

Second Theme Suggestion: Companions.

Why? Simple, and none of us could live without theme. (Okay if you're a solo-type of guy, GO MAKE SOME FRIENDS! LOL JK. I'm not serious. closed eyes smile)

The Screenshot contest is live, people!

Go take 3 screenshots of your fallout game, and submit them to the competition!

Here's a link:
