Categorization should go on behind the scenes.

I'm thinking there would be 4 levels, actually. With intermediate being split into two:
Intermediate A - closer to Advanced, and
Intermediate B - closer to Beginner

did I say that here already? or was that stickam? I dunno and I'm too lazy to scroll up! lol :P

The benefit of having people 'rate' themselves would save us a bit of time in determining the final rank. We'd probably only bump someone 'up' rather than 'down'. So if someone says they're Advanced, but the 'panel' feels they're more Intermediate-B, we'd let them compete in the Advanced round. If they say they're a Beginner, but we feel they're more suited for Inter-A, then we'd bump them up to Inter-B... or even A, depending.

Right... final say would be up to the 'panel', but having someone say 'just put me where ever you think I fit' would be more time consuming and taxing on the whole process ...and would probably create some hurt feelings (if someone thinks they're godly and we dump them in beginners, for example).

Anyway... this is just me thinking out loud. I have no idea what ToaS has planned, so ...I guess we'll see how it plays out.

You'd be better off with two levels, to be fair. A and B. Otherwise the people are spread too thinly. Say there's 8+ people per group ... and don't forget dropouts ... then you can get 3-4 rounds in.

Otherwise it's fine. If you can think of the rules in 5 minutes, then you've got a simple tournament that people can follow.

I like this idea. My concern with users self-assigning was that the 3 groups would wind up disproportionate because of modesty. This should be fun :)

I'm thinking of putting together a few small tutorials on coloring and painting with Photoshop. Does anyone have specific requests/things they'd like to see covered?

It would help the beginners though, we wouldn't stand a chance to you great artists.

I had Photoshop once, I tried painting in it, but it was veeery complicated and sooo confusing. All the tutorials I checked on Youtube were no help. So, yes. I'd like to know the basics, please.

Why won't the art portal let me post art? It keeps saying that the page does not exist.

Works fine for me.

Aww. I tried to switch browsers but it still doesn't work. Maybe it's my account?

I'm getting an even weirder problem where my scores/views on my pieces are constantly changing. o_o If I view a piece once it will have 400 views. I view it again, it has 370 views and the score is a past score.

I'm using Chrome and it happened to me. 3 times today.
Two hours later, my art appeared in the portal. Just give it some time.

Also I'm getting ghost PM's a lot. That little envelope beside your username says you have 2 messages, but when you check your inbox there's nothing there.

Lol ghost story. This is serious though.

Oh stop it you. <3

Anyway I've been noticing a lot of bugs since the redesign. Is there any thread where you can tell the admins about bugs? Or anyway just to let them know?

PM's won't work.

The forum listing says hiryugouku posted in the lounge, but his post can't be found...
