Rules of the competition for your reference.

[spoiler=Rules]RULES:
1) only 1 entry per contestant, either in the Full Custom division or in the Splice/Edit division.(Animated may be a division if enough entries are in to justify it)
-Please declare which division you fall under to avoid potential confusion.
2) No voting for your own entry!
3) Entries should be limited to 16 colors.(15 colors+ 1 background color) This is more of a guideline, but good to follow for style and challenge reasons. Colors may be custom or using GBA sprite palletes.
4) No posting previous/old works! This means no edits/recolors of something previously made as well.
-allowing previous/old works would give an unfair advantage to certain entries, two weeks is a good amount of time to work on an entry... how fair would it be to have to go up against something someone spent months or even a year on?
-creating brand new works, encourages creativity and artistic growth and development, kinda what the whole art forums are about... isn't it?

[spoiler=Voting and Winners]Depending on Entry types and total number we will either go with split divisions for typically Full Custom and Splice/Edit entries, or single division. (Over 20 entries, or sizable enough division for both entry types will result in Split Division voting)

Any further questions or concerns can be PMed to the current host!(That's me Smirks, currently) ...or posted in the feedback and discussion thread here to avoid thread derailment.

Looking forward to your entries!

PS: On in thread disputes, from the pinned Spriting and Competition thread.

Quote

There has been a lot of arguing amongst members in these forums (especially the competition sub-forum). I know that people can disagree and small quarrels are not a big deal but the sad part about this is the argument always gets out of hand. This is not only a frustration for myself and your fellow members but it is also thread derailment which is against the code of conduct.

Quote

The point of the competition threads are to enter in the competitions, to give critique to those who enter, and to vote for your favourite entry, not to bicker about who isn't following the rules of the competition. It is up to the person in charge of the competition to decide who does or doesn't follow the rules, not the participators and other members. If you want to have heated arguments with each other or think an entry is breaking the rules then do so via the personal messenger or some other form of private conversation.

PPS: Sorry this took so long to get up. A big storm came through my area and I didn't have Wi-Fi for a few days :/

Theme title implies 'must include historical vehicle'.

Detail text says 'must have historical relevance, but may include a vehicle, but also there must be a visible passenger to the vehicle.'

Which one is it?

[Edit: yay clarification]

I think what that means is that a human unit doesn't have to be inside the vehicle, but a human and a vehicle must be there.

Once again though, I don't have any ideas for this and I don't think I could come up with one that I would feel like making. So yeah, sorry for not having interest again... >_<

I'm an AoEII fan myself. ^^

Maybe I'll enter this after all since a vehicle isn't required. I dunno yet.
