I don’t often get involved in these rule questions. However, what I find confusing is someone will ask a rules question and several well meaning participants that are not the host, ETO or music will jump in with there answer. I have seen several different well meaning answers to the same question. And when the host, ETO or music do answer the question they are all too often challenged with a what if, how come or why not.

The problem I have is with the opening post by the host ( the post only, not the host whom I think does a wonderful job). After the intro to the challenge the next heading should be

“R U L E S”

The first and only comment should be in a cookie cutter BOLD FACE MEDIUM SIZE note

Please read the RULES FOR THE MONTHLY FREEBIE CHALLENGE located on the first page of the General Freepozitory 5th sticky down.

The next heading should be an addendum to the rules as the host feels necessary for the particular challenge.

I have read the, RULES FOR THE MONTHLY FREEBIE CHALLENGE located on the first page of the General Freepozitory 5th sticky down, several times. I am an old man that many have said has lost most of his marbles but these rules seem very clear and easy to follow.

I like the second line above the smiley face at the bottom of the page.

“Those are the rules. If you have any questions about a certain month, please pm the host or me (Music) for help.”

This could help lower the page count to these challenges. Although it won’t help your post count.

So Dollygirl please forgive my interruption to your challenge. I am going off to have more fun with more NAE, maybe an entry. and hopefully more Hershey’s Chocolate Cream Pie.


NAE

Title: Please be Seated


thanks dlee, well put. we do appreciate everyone trying to help explain the rules, but I agree that too many cooks spoil the broth. But thank you all anyway for trying to help explain the rules.

This is the rule for this month on postwork:

4. Postwork on scenes is limited to insertion of conversation balloons, signatures and borders. If you create a page with multiple scenes then postwork to compile the page layout is allowed. Use of Comic Life for this type of work is allowed for this month. You get a free trail usage of 30 days.

This is on page one, the first post!

Good grief…ya don’t look at the forums for a few hours and what happens? You get one abstract surrealistic masterwork, a couple of really good lookin’ comix pages and somebody’s pregnant.

My hardiest and most sincere congratulations, perlk! Not only is it a grand adventure getting one here, but getting them out on their own! My only turns 21 next month. And it only seems like yesterday…

thanks dleelaw57.

Now can everyone please read the post I made 2 posts above his as well.  I am not only a moderator,  I am still one of Music’s ETOs, and am really trying to help Music keep this challenge alive and well. It is not happening all the time we end up with this sort of discussion within the challenge thread.

Please can everyone remember this is an official challenge. It is accepted, and sometimes sponsored by Daz3D, and we do have rules, despite some people thoughts to the contrary.


We also normally have fun, and this discussion is killing the fun, and upsetting Music and the ETO team.

We all owe a lot to Music, he has kept this challenge going for several years now, and it is one of the longest running challenges on the Daz3d forums.

So please help us to help Music and keep the discussion out of the challenge thread.

THis is something that has never happened before, during the lifetime of the Freebie challenge, and I am not cettain why it is happening now.

I agree with the new rules you added and changed cho, very well put. I have been part of this challenge since the second month it started and find myself not wanting to come in anymore because of all the complaining and constant “but why” comebacks we have been getting in the last few months. And I’m one (not the only one) of the ETO’s that keeps watch around here. I can understand if you are having trouble understanding the rules, especially if English isn’t your first language. But when given the rules and even in many occasions given the explanation for them many of you are still confused. Maybe you’re reading too much into it. This is a simple contest with fairly simple rules (compared to others I’ve seen)  we have more fun than they do as well. Until lately… come on everyone, PLEASE let’s lighten the mood around here so that EVERYONE will have a good time and enjoy themselves again. If you don’t, you will kill this contest sure as I’m sitting in front of my computer typing.

NOW EVERYONE PLAY NICE OR i HAVE SOME PIES THAT i WILL THROW AT YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ADAM ‘n’ EVE

IF you can’t see it big in the Freepoz, go here and give it a click:
http://dorseyland.deviantart.com/art/Adam-and-Eve-314828857

Created with DAZ Studio 3 and Comic Life 2. Not sure if the rules have been broken, but as for the required freebie from Most Digital Creations, my butt is covered.

The plan was to have only the Adam Thwaites freebies that are permanently available, but several of his short-term “Surprise Gifts” sneaked in. (I have so many that I could do several entries using only them.)

all we need is music now and we can take em all on…

I’m eating pie right now! Give me a break…we can clobber folks later.


Hehehe.


tongue laugh

 


I can make it a rule if needed. Any content included with a program like Daz,Bryce,Poser,Blender or any other like that, will be automatically labeled a neutral item. It will be allowed to use it if needed, but you can not claim it as a freebie.

I think Oom is just messing with us guys… He can’t possibly be serious????? Oom?????  HELLOooooooo you are just having fun right??

He must be tired. I think he went to bed. He was not having fun. I think he is aware that there are “general” rules, that most all contests have. Ours has taken four, going on five, years to develope and make it as simple as possible, with basic rules, that anyone can follow. One of those rules is to ask if you are not sure about something. Decissions can be reached most all of the time very easily. This way we can all still have fun and learn at the same time.

To be honest I’m with Oom the lack of written rules means that for anyone new to the competetion its very confusing, I thought that their was a no post wiork rule but it seems that only applies to some post work, layering of images is ok in some instances but not in others. If I could layer images then I could do more, this is a restraint of my technology not neccassarily skill, layering images to get a particular ‘toon’ effect is ok though.
Sorry but the rules seem all over the place, followed by some but not by others, it leaves a sense of unfairness which is a shame as this looks like a fun competetion.

Layering of a render is not allowed. It must be made by rendering straight from the program used to create it. Layering would be considered postwork yes, also not allowed. The host of each month has the power to bring in and/or alter rules as we know them. It must be posted in the intro for the contest for all to read. In this case, Dollygirl has allowed layering, and some specific postwork allowances.
