Whilst Steve is great, I think mentioning him twice is overkill
On a serious note though:
I remember something like this, my apologies @RoseyNineOneOne for some reason I thought this was against animation, and so can only be seen as a bit of an oversight on my part!
So here’s the thing then, I agree that we shouldn’t allow submissions with any post-production, and so I’ll alter the rules to specify that.
We can then go a step further and say “Only models can be submitted” as in, not a part of a scene, regardless of whether that scene is made in Qubicle or not. What are your thoughts on this? And yours @voxel_pirate?
This would level the playing field a lot, I mean obviously some people may see your work @voxel_pirate or indeed the work of @Froggy and feel slightly disheartened from entering, so I am in favour of simply stripping it back to simply the models.
There has been no denial of an entry in any way, these competitions are open to every single person on the forums regardless of ability, the only reason I would delete or deny an entry would be if it was in no way relevant to that week, or was obscene in some way.
The lower submission rate could be many things, a lull in activity,or people not wanting to participate this week, who knows.
