    I think a common starting image would be a good idea as it gives everyone an idea of what was actually done. Either that or similar to worth1000.

    I also like the idea of it being tied into POTM as well to see the 2 comps side by side (winners on front page like POTM?)

    Gee this fence up my bum is getting uncomfortable.

    Maybe the 'shop of the month image should be that of the previous POTM ;). Probably better to start off with something a bit more basic and generic though.

    -- (I know it's been stickied but wanted to call a little attention here) BUMP! --

    How about having a the option to freely select from submitted POTM pics to make your own collage or story or whatever?
    And how about someone spearhead this so it gets going? I would think everyone's as ready as ever and still fired up. So go go go :)

    I would think they would take anything severely altered/artificial as a chop. I don't see why 3d wouldn't count as that.

    I'd love to.

    can we submit fully fake (as in no base pic) stuff as well? I'm able to create in PS just like I can with a pencil/paper...

    That's one of the downsides. Another downside is that she still has a mouth free to talk when, um, she's doing something that is what you could call "super special quiet but oh so good time", like eating dinner for example, not that i was talking about anything else :D

    I think we're gonna just have to start cotm threads, since bit-tech isn't coming to the party :waah: There doesn't have to be any prizes i think, we could just make a cotm thread every month. Maybe there should be two catergorys in each cotm, one for ps creations, and one for ps photo mods?

    Or maybe a mod would like to do the honours of making the cotm thread each month, and adding a poll at around the end of the month so members can vote for the winners.

    I guess the themes for ps creations & ps mods can be decided by the winners of the previous month, and as for the first month, have it open or a mod can decide, whatever.

    I think it would be a good idea to stick with complete freestyle options but perhaps make an optional setpoint image available? To set an optional starting direction towards the theme decided upon by previous winner...
    I'm guessing two categories may be too broad to start with..?

    Someone could say sponsor this month's prize, a chopped godzilla sized e-cookie would be nice, the theme of motion is pretty cool, and maybe have it open for any type of ps creation.... so all we need is for someone to start thier own cotm thread. It's still the start of the month, so it's not too late for this month either!
    I'm sure there are heaps of people that want to make something and show it off, so if one guy makes the thread, they will come!
