If we're submitting very large images, can we hyperlink them instead of just embedding them here directly? It makes it easier to view the thread without the use of a cinema screen.

Can we also not quote said large images? Loading the world's most massive Coco artwork once is enough—twice is data-guzzling torture.


Nice stuff.

but the primary focus will be the radical babe herself :CocoWink:

The way I interpreted the whole sentence would be "You can draw who you want ALONGSIDE Coco, yet she should be the focus."

The only other way I see this being interpreted is "You can draw whomever, but drawings of Coco take priority and have a bigger chance of winning."

I'm curious to see how you interpreted the rules.

From the point of view of someone not participating, with no vested interest at all, the rules meant that, although this is a "celebration" of Coco's adding to the game, it's not strictly necessary to draw her. It'd make more sense if you did, because that's... uh, the theme of the event, but it's not a hard and fast criterion.

If it were necessary to draw Coco for a submission to be eligible, it would need to be made explicit:

    "Entries must focus on Coco, although other 'Nauts may be included as well."

    "Your entry must be based around Coco."

    "Coco should be the central theme of your entry."

I would also personally be more specific with "art" contest; does writing qualify as art, or is this strictly image-based? Multiple entries per person, but only counting one, is also vague. Is the first entry the default to be considered, or is it based on the most recently submitted piece?

I mean, it doesn't matter anyway, but it's interesting.

For a discussion about proper wording, you're making a pretty big mistake with your own wording here, Protector. That's a statement of fact, not a statement of interpretation--which is what this discussion is about. Interpretation. :derp:

Let me reorder the clauses:

    "The rules meant, from the point of view of someone not participating, that..."

That's purely subjective, parenthetical qualification.

To be fair, it does read better that way compared to the original, but the meaning hasn't changed. You might also see:

    "The rules meant (from the point of view of someone not participating) that..."

Hence parenthetical, as in parenthetical commas.

"Proper wording" is also ironic. There is no such thing as "proper" language use in English. We don't have any governing body dedicated to the maintenance of the language, so there's no one to set rules against which the "proper" is or could be measured—unlike something like the Académie française.

Words are interesting.

Since I made it i can clarify. the pictures didnt have to be just coco, it could be her and other nauts with her, though more focus is on coco.
and the contest is now over and I will pick the winners shortly.
