If we just had one title and it was a contest that we voted on then I'm pretty sure that the voting would be split on cafe allegiance lines with football guys voting for the football artists and the baseball guys voting for the baseball artists and Cornbread Maxwell's head exploding

Before we run our first sig contest over here, let me run this by you first.
We're already having big plans on the football side, and I was wondering if maybe we just want to tie the baseball side into that system (with similar rules and all). If we want to do things differently over here, that's cool, but then I think it should be a conscious decision, after seeing what we plan for the "other" side, and dismissing it. Anyway, here are the basics:
- No sigs should ever be bigger than 468x100.
- One big contest per year (comparable to THE academy awards), with the winner getting a special icon and (at some point in the future) possibly even a prize. For football, that's in October, for baseball - maybe early May?
- Two main categories, #1 freestyle (468x100, but animations and as many MBs as you want), #2 cafestyle (no animations, 12k limit).
- Only one entry per person/contest.
- Smaller contests arount the year, mostly wrapped around a special "theme" - e.g. Xmas sigs (or avatars?), Homeruns, etc.
Hope I didn't forget anything. In my book, keeping the 468x100 limits is fairly important (that's what sigs simply look like here at the Cafe - otherwise this will turn into a more general graphics contest), other than that, we're more or less open to suggestions. Let me note however that I think it would be cool if baseball and football side could be in the same boat with this. Instead of having a WBO and a WBC who mostly care about themselves, we'd be more in the direction of a Pro Tour with two ultimate season highlights and a couple of smaller events. Different preferences would be ok (if the baseball side doesn't allow animations - fine) - comparable maybe to tournaments on hard court vs. clay court tennis. But it would be good if in the end it's still recognizable as the same sport - I'm pretty sure that, in the long run, it would benefit everyone.
