Hi! I just have a quick question… on the news thread you wrote “a comic referring to the theme of summer” but here on the rules you wrote “a comic showing a funny story related to the holidays (in Tibia)”… so in other words you mean the comic must be about Summer holidays? As in summer vacations ?… or you changed the contest (cause I see the post is edited) and now its possible to use any other holiday, like Christmas or Halloween? I’m kind of confused sorry!

I’ll be waiting for your answer :)

Most of the participants have difficulty reading comprehension. The competition was about holiday/vacation as it is in summer time, not Christmas, Easter or Valentine. Good luck to everyone involved, though.

It literally doesn't state anywhere that it's meant to be about "summer holidays" it just says holidays which can be a thousand different things.

Honestly I (like others) understood that it could be about any holiday in Tibia ...

What will happen to the
comics that didn't focus on the summer theme?

We already lost? :o

Hey, just wanted to let you know that it was stated in the news "...referring to the theme of summer"(http://funtibia.com/news.php):

Submits have to be accepted. We accepted all but somehow not all images were uploaded correctly. Please reupload - we will accept only these that did not upload correctly.

Excuse-me, but acept images in day 13 not is wrong? In rules stay "day 12", this is wrong for all guys with sent in right date no?
Next time, try to send in right date, its what i think, will be unfair for who sent in correctly date.
Good lucky!

It is not a publication time, but an approval time.
If you would take a moment you would notice that the works are added one by one, minute by minute. The administration certainly has an insight into who and when published the photo.

Posted by MastroDaro on 13 September 2021 15:44:20
#16

Thats right, several submits were accepted after deadline. The process of approval is manual.

Concerning missing images: I tested that image if you upload image of max 700x1500 px with size of less than 700KB it will be accepted.

So request to all those whos images are broken - please reupload and shrink your images. We will accept only those with broken images.

"Thats right, several submits were accepted after deadline"

But this is not wrong? Fansite need be imparcial no?Day 13 can't be acept anymore, like you rules!
Was 1 month for participe, this is a fault with all participations sent in right date.
Is nice idea for contest, but need made justice for who made the right, its my opinion.

Will be bad if who sent in wrong date win and the people which sent in right date no!

Events its serious in my point!!!

Sorry for my post, because i see wrong acept entrys in day 13 and i see wrong too waiting for guys which entry cannot open, have tutorial for it.

I was thinking will be more serious the contest fansite, this is a fault of respect for who made the right!

You broken own rules!

Fansite wanna be serious in points, like Tibia is.
Waiting for more entrys its to harm who was post day 12!

I do not understand what part of the summer comic they did not understand, this type of people did not even go to the page and took a look at its content, if they were only guided by the news from tibia.com, they should not approve entries that are from others festivities because it is a lack of respect with the administrators of the page and with those who did go to the original source to find out about the contest The contest is called summer comic, clearly impossible, in which head it is possible to make a Christmas, Halloween or Valentine's comic on this date

Yes, it's like saying I didn't know I was breaking the rules because I didn't read them. It was obvious, but people were only interested in the awards.

The first line of this thread:

"Holidays are in full swing, so the contest cannot be missing!
The contest task is to make a comic with a funny holiday story.

18.08.2021 - 12.09.2021"

I think already can stop to acept others entrys no?
18/8 at 12/9 for ALL , without exceptions.
If you can see picture great, if not, pay more attention next time in tutorial how you can put image and right config.
And about Summer its correct, just see in FunTibiaNews , guys want reward but don't want see about what is the event.
Please, be more serious in events and do right thing for all which already sent in right time!

Psyonic, we dont accept any new comics - only reuploads of these entries that went wrong because images were too big.
To avoid missunderstanding - after someone reupload broken image I delete his old entry and accept new that contain image.

Only two people left, we will wait one more day and close it.

THERE WAS BAD ORGANIZATION IN THIS CONTEST.

Starting because they were not clear on the subject.
The proof of this is that half of the participants did not do it about the summer theme.

As well as they gave the opportunity to correct the images that were not uploaded correctly (expanding the deadlines) they would have informed those of us who did not focus on the summer theme so that we could correct our comics and be able to win something.

I even asked in this post if those of us who did not do it about the summer could no longer win and the administrators NEVER answered me.

For upcoming contests be clear so people don't waste their time.

@Psyonic

First: instead of talking badly about administration, you should check the home page first and read about the contest you are joining.

funtibia.com/forum/attachments/screenshot_20210914_221426.jpg

i.imgur.com/sfMoweI.png

Second: the administration answered the question about theme in the attached picture, user aynnah understood. Please focus on summer vacation. There was no question of disqualifying the rest of the entries, they simply were probably less scored.

i.imgur.com/3ViFjrn.png

Reading comprehension is elementary school knowledge.


Third: all submissions were added manually, which in turn means that the upload time was changed to the time of publication. Just take a look.. they accept them later and that's why they pass deadline.

Hey, we already explained that some people uploaded their contest entries on time, but they did not dispaly correctly in the album. As it turned out later - our fault. We asked these people to reupload, which meant that we had to extend the duration of the contest. Why if someone who made an effort to do the contest entry was not to take part due to the fault of the organizer?

Btw for some entries this is date of accept, not the date of submit.

So the if they did display correctly in the album for waiting at last minute.

You fansite its a very desorganized for events, really, i waste my time and a lot of others too.

Next time when try to do event, try to make something right,

I never will back again on this website, for sure. But you need adm more , because fansite its a serious thing.

Most of us saw the call for the contest directly from the tibia page and NOWHERE does it indicate anything about SUMMER (The link directly brought us to this thread)

I asked in this forum about who did the holiday in general and they did not answer me.

When they realized that half of the comics were not about summer they should have clarified it or at least not accept the "wrong" comics.

Well, I just wish that for future contests more attention to avoid confusion and / or conflicts.

Greetings :)

@Kinandy

First sentence says: "Holidays are in full swing". It happened during the so-called summer holidays.

Probably english language is a problem here because some of you interpret holidays as calendar days off like Easter, Halloween or Christmas day.

The website requires modernization and more frequent activity, but people interested in the competition could easily check all the information and rules.
