RE: Golden Hat XIV WinnersDa Crusha 03-21-2011

congrats to all of the winners!

I don't wanna sound like a stick in the mud but umm... the only golden hat entry that didn't follow the rules won??? Im confused. yeah it looks fantastic but it doesn't even qualify to compete. I could understand if we were told to make shield bearers or an infantry unit filler. Ive noticed this as a growing trend as well. in the last Golden hat most of the models that won looked more like deamonsmiths than musicians, I'd love to see the units that those musicians came from. I don't want to start a bunch of trouble, I'm only saying.

Congratulations to ALL the winners. Job well done.

@Da Crusha: I applaud you for speaking your mind. I respect an honest opinion MORE than a popular opinion. - It doesn't mean I agree with it, I just respect it.

Again well done everyone.

i have no issues with Skink's entry as i see it as a counts as, i do have a problem with another entry though. No offence intended to Ishkur, but i thought that the Golden Hat was supposed to be a monster not a Lord model. What is yours Ishkur ... Golem? or BC Lord? Your blog says BC lord, how was this deemed legal...

The model is brilliant, but im just not sure how appropriate it was for this competition

RE: Golden Hat XIV WinnersWillmark 03-21-2011

To answer the obvious question: the Staff debated the pros and cons of two entries, Skink's being one of them. There were pros and cons and the Staff came up with reasons both for and against.

No one should feel they can't speak their mind we encourage it (I'm sure the banned from last year will disagree Wink Just bear in mind that at some point the Staff will have to make a decision. People may or may not agree with our decisions, but I hope you guys at least understand them. I welcome anyone questioning if they feel they want to. At the end of the day sometimes not even the Staff is not in full agreement and we vote, democracy is like that, sometimes things you like happen, sometimes not so much.

It's also important to note that at some point it's like when I tell my kids "Because I said so!" Wink

Listen...I certainly don't want to detract from Skink's fantastic entry... the quality of the work speaks for itself.

That said I do agree with Da Crusha on this point....I find it odd that the entry that has no inherent "monster" content (but lots of CD content) was the winner...while another that was all monster content (with no obvious CD content) was not even allowed to compete....Unsure

And yes I know that a decision had to be made...and I respect that decision (which is why I've bitten my tongue until now) but since the topic came up I wanted to offer my opinion.

Perhaps its best that my didn't make the cut...it paled in comparison to the allowed entries!

Cheers,

Blue

I also voted my opinion to the staff on this one...in the end, I voted for those that adheared to the rules.

Sadly, the ones I didn't vote for won, and mine, which DID adhear to the rules lost. (Which would probably have been the case anyway.)

I think we all have to acknowledge that in the end the 1st place entry did garner the most votes. So although some of us may disagree with the entry piece for this competition... a lot more people voted for it.

Queue the 'counts as' entries for future contests Wink LOL

Some of the entries were very difficult to decide if they were valid or not. One thing for sure though, if you don't ask us in time, then we can't tell you in time for you to make alternative arrangements.

Ultimately a decision has to be made, and it isn't life or death but we WILL make the wrong decision from time to time. Anyone is more than welcome to raise these kinds of issues in the voting threads and possibly dissuade people from voting for certain entries on those grounds. In this case, it seems that few were discouraged for the top few entries at least.

Look at it the way it was a Samurai's right to protest against the wishes of his liege lord, the final protest he could make was seppuku,er wait a minute.

Blue your entry was likewise part of this discussion.

To round this out folks. In most cases we try to do the best job possible. That said. There is no way to account for everything as entries aren't reviewed until the voting threads (for the most part). Grim is very diligent about the formatting of the rules but things always pop up. With that said we'll be looking at more specific fare next time.

Takes Hat off I appreciate that Willmark...and Grimm had let me know that as well...Still disappointing on my end...but in the grand scheme of things its a relatively small annoyance.

I'm still excited to see what the next topic will be!! though now intimidated by the quality demanded to be in the running...Wink

Cheers!

Well to answer that: a monstrous bull centaur lord was openly discussed and clearly stated as being acceptable in the GHXIV thread here and here.

I read the rules and followed the rules, that's how I qualified. I don't feel in any way that I actually sneaked in something and got away with it. I'm sorry if you feel like that. Sad

Well, I think the problem was that this clarification wasn't in the "Main Rules" on the front page. I certainly missed it.
