    Not to mention there have been AMV, gallery scavenger hunts, arcade, anime quiz and a few other NON-GFX based contests here on AO. So I don’t get what they are saying at all. As far as the sour taste is concerned…try…

    About the credits given based on time spent on the site. Is this something that you guys are unsure about doing, or is it just unclear as to how you will figure the totals? I think that would be a great way to reward those who have been loyal to the site in ways other than posting.

    Time is a bad aspect to go on, there are people who joined in 2004 but haven't been back since then...or just came back recently...why reward them?

    I'm fairly certain the guy was talking about how DB mentioned tie breakers would be awarded to the one who had more credits, which shouldn't really count in my opinion either. After all, just because a person posts more or wins more contests, does not mean their work, on let's say the SOTW, was better in terms of quality.

    If there is a tiebreaker in contest votings, the member with the most credits wins.
    If I'm mistaken, however, then disregard this post.
    Attitude of AO MODS, according to beast
    Because they have obtained that level they are arrogant. You have to kep in mind when you talk about these guys they are kind of dorks who probably didn't excel at much and this is their only outlet to flex their muscles. Their egos would suffer no less so the the forum suffers some more. Watch one way or another they will probably repond to this post with a threat. But there are better forums out there. Private messege Zev.

    Well it would never be that way. In order to reach a tie, there must be two equal groups that think either sig is at a certain quality. For me I think it's a good tie breaker instead of leaving it on the staff or any one member. If you lose now due to your tiebreaker it's entirely in your own hands. Besides how many times have these contests ended in a tie?

    I mean take example for sports, the refs are supposedly fair, but often times you see the player that has been in the league get the benefit of the doubt and a borderline call go their way. Or how about if two people w/ good proposal came to ask for a grant/loan?? Of course the one with good "credit" or a history usually gets the nod.

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart

    This is true, but my question is still out there. Are you currently working on a way to do time based credits effectively, or has the idea been ruled out completely?

    Based on DB's first post I think it was ruled-out completely. And I agree completely with that, credits should be given by participating not by how long have someone been here doing nothing.
