As far as the discussion for the Sigs: WS's sig was the clear cut winner. Taste Schmaste - All of Wicked's sigs take a high degree of knowledge and application of photoshop effects, and the outcomes are unlike any other than anyone can produce here at the cafe. The Price sig is not his best work ever but its very good.




Couldn't disagree more.

To me, looks good/is fun >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> hard to make


Maybe all you photoshop snobs need your own Degree Of Difficulty Championship, where you smudge and light effect and have a picture of someone's leg in an inappropriate place each other to the death! :-D :-D :-D ;-)


Well if thats the case and looks/is fun is what matters, then why'd you enter yours? :^ (<--- that's the Snooty face by the way)

I go into the voting with the mindset of: "which of these sigs would i most like to be using on my posts?"
and I'm sure that's how most people vote, which is, IMO, how it should be judged.

I made a bet in 2003 that the Devil Rays would win the 2008 World Series. Oh so close.

So I guess no sig will ever get a vote from you unless it's a braves player. That might explain why you voted for your own sig to win first place. O:-)

actually, i just voted for myself because i wanted to win. but it is true for most of the voters. if their favorite player/team is up there, it's much more likely that they'll vote for that sig.

I think that a system with blind voting may be better, if it's possible. People may be seeing who's winning and think that their vote won't matter if they don't vote for one of the top couple sigs at the moment. (see: General Election Primaries)
