There has been a minor change to Drako's Art Contest:
Due to some confusion as to how our Art Contests work, and the fact that they are hosted on both The Den and Playground sites (NSFW and SFW), we have made a minor change to the Art Contest.
We already censor NSFW thumbnails for the Playground.
Now, we added a name field to the Nomination Form, so artists may know who nominated the art.
The name field is completely optional and Nominations may still be anonymous.
We have also added the following line to our Nomination Page:
"Note: Nominations may be pending the artist's reply to our "Notice of Nomination" and may not be included for voting if the artist does not wish to participate."
We ALWAYS inform the artists when their work gets nominated into the Art Contest. The artists have the FULL RIGHT to reply to that Notice, which gives them the full right to decide to not participate in the Art Contest. So while we may list art when it gets Nominated on our sites, the artist can decide not to partake and no art is active in the contest until it goes into the polls.
If an artist decides to not participate, then the art does not get officially included into the Contest. The only time it becomes official is if the art makes it to the voting stage. The nomination stage has always been pending, and therefore nothing has really changed. The only change is we made this fact much more obvious and tranparent.
Please stop yelling at our volunteers when we notify an artist of this nomination, which typically happens in comments so as to leave a public paper trail. This is especially true if you are NOT the artist. The notice has always been there to let the artist know it is sitting in the pending stage and may continue to the polls - and become officially part of the contest - unless they don't wish to participate.
