If you have something to say about how SOTW is run, or have any suggestions as to how to improve it, please do tell!

Why, did something happen? So far I think you were doing your job well, and the early comics were a nice touch to actually make me enter SotW from day 1.

Nothing really. I just thought that a feedback/suggestions thread would be useful, given that I've been a bit confused over some themes (eg. Black & White, Chosen Stock). Anyhow, feedback and suggestions are always helpful, so I decided to ask for them.

Rawr, check the current SotW voting. I'm so pleasantly surprised that all the sigs have similar sizes and ratios. I hope this tendency keeps up.

Great job Hadriel, from now on people should just pick nice wallpapers, crop them and put them as SotW entries, because apparently that's all that's needed to win a SotW.

Well, would you rather I disqualify them from the onset or leave it to the voters to decide whether an entry is deserving of the title or not during the voting? I can forsee lots of QQing and complaints if I were to adopt the former system.

Some people use stocks, don't they? Stock is, well, more or less a wallpaper if anything else.

I may not like stocks, but I don't mind as much entries on which people actually did anything.

Well, Emmie is right in saying that there's a limit to how little you can work on a stock and expect to win. It's unfair if someone just finds a nice stock and uses it instead of working on effects more like others might on a worse stock.

Well, it was disqualified because you didn't provide a stock URL (which was stated in the rules).
Eh, you need to kniw the urls? I have no idea, most of them are part of my extensice stock archive on my computer, but eh, I'll see if I can't travk it down then...

Spoilers.

Reason is, that you have to submit it using a Host that does not declare your name, in this case, using photobucket, your name is visible.

Use Tinypic or Imageshack the next time.

Oh, not having the stock. Shame Shame.
