We're strongest as a team. That's how I anticipated we'd be judged...

This is a little random, but I found out how to add gifs on here just a few seconds ago and I want to try it out ;w;



But I think we should just grade everyone as a team and put a penalty on any team who has a late member or doesn't fit criteria.

Create teams of three. That means teaming up with OTHER CRUNCHYROLL MEMBERS.

Together, design your own characters, (discuss) and submit a piece of artwork EACH picturing your team.

That means one picture from each user, of themselves and the other two team-mates.



I'm sorry, it's not my intention to come across as rude or anything like that but the rules were pretty clear from the very beginning. :c

Each person had to submit a picture of their group and the contest itself is a contest about teaming up and winning as a team, otherwise it would have been a simple "design a character contest". I do get that those with just two teammates are upset, you know? And I'm not, by any means, implying you didn't put as much effort as everyone else because it's clear you did.

But please, keep in mind it's also rather rude to those who did follow the original rules. It's not fair to change the entire contest's rules just because your teammates flaked out on you.

Rather than punish all the other contestants, you should blame your teammates for it. Because I— and I'm sure a lot of people feel this way—joined this contest with hopes of winning, not as an individual, but as a team. Because that is what this contest was all about from the very beginning, teaming up and "surviving" the game together.

Well, this is just my opinion, though.

i really honestly don't care about winning at this point, i just wanted this to be fair and fun. i do want that kurapika figurine, be a nice first. but its not like i need it. i care for the series more than a plastic doll.

contest like these needs a more detailed set of guidelines.

and @ayakashi no where in there does it say that you will be judged as a team. in no ways was that obivous.

but victoria, if choosing a winner by a team was what you intended all along than so be it. changing it now will just make a fuss, unless you feel the need to change it. since im not in your position, i wouldn't know.

not everyone can make the connections you made, so for the sake of the next contests to come, please make it a little more detailed so we don't have someone giving out false information like we did in this contests.

i really enjoyed meeting new people and having fun developing these characters. me and Fei are still having fun developing our character, Han suggested the idea i believe, but he rarely shows up.

a contest, though, is no contest and looses all the bindings when there is no winner.

but for no reason should you hesitate to do another team competition, i really think its a good idea. and it seems so much more fun than the individual ones. even though i compete in almost all your contest, i don't feel like a contestant until this one.

EDIT
nvm, i totally didn't see your big announcement.

hmm not sure if i wanna do it team or individual styles.

i came into this contest figuring that it would be judge individually. but i kinda wanna win with my team. but one of my teammate posted late so im not sure if thats even an option for me.


but i still wanna stay true to what i posted above.

i hope you have a hisoka figurine.

I think you got a great idea! That way all the entries can be judged, both individually and as a team. Everyone has a chance to win. And I think since the challenge was to create a group and do it as a team, the grandprize should remain for the teams. Cus I think that's the fun part of this contest; that you had to create a Hunter team with different people you didn't know and tested your teamwork. So since it was the original intention, I think the prize should remain for the teams. I see Nekomata_Nayu's point too. My team worked really hard to get it done and I would be kinda sad to know our teamwork was all for nothing. However, I understand that some people don't have team members and we can't blame them for that. If we were put in their shoes, I'm sure we'd want to be in the contest. so they should obviously still get a chance to participate and win. That's why I think your idea is great! ^__^

I wanna add though, I think that the 4 runnerups and the grandprize are based on teams so technically.....there are 12 runner ups and 3 winners right? I think we should have 3 runner up teams and 3 individual runner ups. That way it's evened out. But if there aren't enough teams then I guess 2 runner up teams and 3 individual runner ups? I'm not sure but I think it's a good start. And like teh_kuro said, it's still up to SailorBee since she's the moderator...so um yeah.

And again guys, this is just an opinion, you're free to choose what you want.

P.S: There are some guys who wanted to participate in this contest but didn't because they didn't have a team. I think they should be given a chance too since they weren't aware of the changes.

EDIT: About the individual prizes, do you think it should be limited to only people whose group failed to submit 3 entries? IMO, it should be for ALL contestants, whether they're in a group or alone. What do you guys think? .__.


x3 You are always so nice, thanks a lot for the kind words! And I thought of that too if there were four runnerups for teams probably there are 12 memberships or at least if my math is ok, If that's the case it's true we could divide the runnerups in 2 groups of 6 even if it's as a team or not 12 people will get

@aniMefreAk_xD I don't know if it's 3 packages or 1...this I why if it's 1 package for 3 people well it's unfair for just 1 people win it individually if it was intended since the beginning as a team prize if there's 3 for each member well I don't know how can it be fair, I believe we all did a pretty big effort for this and I said it's not fair if only teams get to participate but it's also not fair for people who didn't got their teams...it's not as black or white it's more like a gray kinda situation...it will remain on SailorBee decision, I just came up with an idea so everyone even people without a team can participate.

In the end this is a situation that's only getting bigger and more complex everyday...I hope we can see the winners soon and I'll be happy to see new contests and add people from here to my buddies list because if you love hunterxhunter you are most definetely my friend <3

It's just, not many people were even able to complete this contest, I can ONLY COUNT entries that were submitted correctly, meaning if your team members didn't post, or just one of you didn't post, you will not win.


I still like this one.

I don't get how judging individually is rude to other teams that made 3 drawings. Ofc everyone who entered expected all their members to enter, so I still don't think it's fair for people who already made entries be told in the end "oh sorry we're not judging you because your team mate didnt enter" you guys put an equal amount of effort in as us so why should we just be kicked out of the contest because of a teammate that couldn't get it done? In terms of hunter x hunter, if your teammate doesn't show up to a fight then are you just going to give up? No you're going to fight D:<

If its judges individually all entries can be judged, instead of just a few.
The only thing "unfair" for teams is that more entries get judged, which shouldn't be unfair since we already entered our drawing in before we knew we needed teams of 3...
I'm pretty sure all people that did teams will vote for teams just to get rid of some competition & there's not that many individual entries anyways...

@Delinquent

I understand where are you coming from, but well let me propose a scenario...

The entries get judged individually and you win the grand prize, you used 2 characters that belong to someone else to win but you won and your teammate might not even make it to the runnerups...maybe you tell me: I'll share the prize with my team! But how about they live in another state and you can't send it because lack of money or whatever...and will you send it to the other person that didn't even showed up? Of course you might live nearby from them and it's easier to share the prize...but in the end...you entered to win together not to watch how another person wins with your character. This is just my opinion of course...

This will only bring bad feelings among contestants...and afraid to be called a geek or a silly fangirl for saying this but don't you remember the part of the exam of the majority rule? Tompa manipulated it so Leorio would feel out of the team and that made him get upset at the others...how this would be any different? You win yay but your teammates might get nothing and they might be happy for you but maybe they won't... and the reason for this contest was to bring cr members together...it renders the goal of this null...

It might be immature to get upset over a contest yes of course...but I'm just saying it might happen...and losing friends or new frienships over something like this...well I find it silly...

And no I don't feel fair people that were left by a teammember should be punished...it isn't fair either...and this is why I proposed to divide the runnerups I don't really know how to divide the grandprize but it's not that I want less competition...or akayashi_ for that matter we just want this to be as fair as posible... :/ for everyone...

Delinquent, I get that there are people who didn't get to join bcus of theyre teammate and I get that they'd want to win the grandprize. I mean, most of the time I join contests to win too so if I didn't even get that opportunity to win because of my teammates, I'd be pretty upset. But that's the point of the contest, or at least what I got from SailorBee; that we need to team up with people that we don't know and figure out a way to join the contest. Honestly, I think it was pretty irresponsible for those people to not even hand in their drawings. Not to be rude or blunt, but if they think they couldn't hand it in in time or weren't as determined to join as the other team members, they shouldn't even agree to join the team. In the end, it just brought the whole team down. Even "unexpected natural disasters" like Sandy was forecasted, so you can't really say you let down your team for bad time management. In fact, if they knew they couldn't organize it with school and work, they should've informed the other team members. Sorry if this is offensive to people and I don't mean to be mean but that's just what I think....

So anyways, my point is that I know that individual entries should stand a chance to win but again, like akayashi_ said, you should blame your own teammates and not the entire contest for not being able to participate. Not saying you should put the blame to one person, it's practically a team job so it technically should be the team's entire fault. The contest's main point was to judge and combine CR's members to team up together. So that's why I think the grandprize should remain for the teams. I'm sure that you put in effort and I'm sorry if your teammates didn't help you out but that's exactly what the contest was about. Again, sorry if I sound offensive or aggressive to you guys.

I'm pretty upset that you think we voted for the teams just out of spite and getting rid of competition. I don't know about others but I just wrote a really long reply and you're probably really tired reading this and I'll say honestly that I'm not trying to get rid of competition or anything ill-intentioned. Trust me, I'm pretty sure that akayashi's team got this in the bag already but that's what a contest is for, to challenge yourself with other entries so I don't really see the point of getting rid of other contestants.

Anyways, I think teh_kuro's idea is pretty fair for everyone, individual entries get a chance to win, the people (who worked hard with other teammembers)' efforts won't go to waste AND the contest's objective of teaming up still isn't lost. It's fair right?

Sorry if I offended anyone (again) but that's just what I think and us arguing about this isn't really gonna help. It's SailorBee's decision in the end.

Yeah, in the beginning, I thought It was pretty obvious what the rules were. The entire point of the contest was to simulate the teamwork used in the Hunter Exams by the main characters. So, you all have to communicate - that was part of the competition. I had always thought I'd be selecting one winning team, and sending each member a prize.... But, since a lot of people weren't able to complete the contest because their TEAM MATES failed to complete their part, I feel bad for the people on teams that DID do something, you know ?


So what I'm going to do is, ....

I will select two winning TEAMS - That means 6 people total.

1st Place team
2nd Place team

And I will choose 3 individual winners.
1st
2nd
3rd

As for prizes, I have HunterxHunter prize packs I made, consisting of figures. ALL FIGURES. Really cool stuff.

IS THAT OKAY CRUNCHYROLL MINNA SAN !?

^^^ yes its obvious that ayakashi team will win if its a team competition.

and if we are using hunter x hunter a reference. don't forget about the 4/5th exam. its basically an all out war.

honestly, if it was a team i think we shoulda just made it 1 image. kinda impossible if you not living near each other. well not really if your teammates are skilled enough or if you are using the same program, then it something you could do together. if one person is bad with computer technques that you can draw it out and get your other teammate to scan and turn it into a digital image. but than you loose the abilitiy to manually draw.

in the end, your individualizing each of your group photo though. you developed a scheme together, something you shared with the other. in which a rubric type of scoring should be implement. on how you used each character and all that.

idk im over thinking it myself.

i think 1 group and 1++ individual should win. possibly 90 membership that she always gives outs. and the group wins the trophy would be pretty fair at this stage.

Edit:
this was meant to be after teh kuro. i dunno why it posted so late.

That's basically what teh_kuro suggested. I think it's great we get to split it into two categories. Thanks SailorBee~! ^_^ I hope all the individual contestants are satisfied with the decision......
