I believe we have always treated participating artists with respect. And those who participate should also respect us and our requirement.
If you do not like the prizes, you're more than welcome
not to participate. We are in no way using your screens
for profit. If anything, we are allowing to share your
creativity and are giving you cash points for it.
I really don't see why it matters if we increase or decrease
prize points, it's still a lot better than you having to spend
your own money.
Is that a respectful way to reply to a participant after asking a valid question? (If your answer is yes, something's wrong with you)
And you know better than us?
Perhaps, yeah. I'm an artist and have participated in several contests where the management has had no issues. And specially no threats to cancel the event after a single sign of disagreement.
To us, it simply means we can use your work as our login screen and if GM so wishes, he can use your login screen on his Thai server as well. That's all that we mean. We do not want someone to stop us from using the login screen after the event and simply says he submitted the work "only for the contest, now it is still mine, I don't want you guys to use it." We are rather straightforward in our thinking.
That's what I meant when I said we give you permission to use our artworks for commercial use.
I honestly don't care if you use it once or twice or use it at all, I just feel it's very disrespectful of you to decrease the prizes for THE SAME kind of contest and you even specify that you want cute, beautiful, made with love and care, don't want poorly done works but want us to be original as possible. You also want nice login screens, nothing trollish, nothing incomplete or slapdash. That's a lot of things you want right?
Wait there's more, you also are looking for new login screens, not one we already have. But at the same time we are not rewarding you based on time spent making the item; it is based on the perceived look of your work in our eyes.
So let me see if I got it, you want good art, made with love and care and you can reject poorly done works. And you want us to do all that regardless of how long we might take while you decrease the incentive? That admin, is what I meant by lack of knowledge. You literally have no idea how art works.
