Question time.
I've noticed, but entries have dwindled enough for me to comment on it now.
Is it at the point where people are becoming busy with school or other obligations, or is it something else?

And if people want to propose an idea for a round, go ahead.

I believe it's because of school. A lot of people are starting that up around now.

Hm.. what should we do about the contest then? Will people to be able to compete after they get settled into a school routine, or should it be put on hold again indefinitely?

I say we keep going, whoever enters enters, and if the judging gets delayed, so be it.

But the problem that arrives from that is if only 2-3 people enter on each round, is it still worth doing?

Maybe push the judge date back to Sunday or Monday, to allow people some time to work over the course of Friday and Saturday?

Judge date already is sunday.. so pushing it back would make it monday. Hm.. I could see this as being possible, if the end result favors continuing.

Problem with pushing it back to Monday is I work Mondays, so judging would be tough for me (I know I haven't judged for a few rounds, but I had a rather important project that had to come first over this).

I didn't enter last week because I was busy, I'm still interested in competing. One suggestion I have is to possibly advertise this contest on the YouTube channel again, I've noticed a lot of people on YouTube don't even realize the forums exist. I'm sorry if I sound harsh, but the video that was posted in May could have been done better, it didn't give the viewers any reason to join the contest other than 'You earn points to get prizes'. (Also you sounded really mad in the video, LlamaMinister. Like Silver had just eaten your last cookie or something.) Make a point to advertise the contest as a place for your work to be critiqued in a similar fashion to Pixel Art in Review, and that it's a great way to test out and improve your skills with spriting.

That's actually just my voice XD

But yeah, I could have done a much better job doing the voice over, I admit. But I have been working on that (which is actually why I've been busy). I wouldn't be opposed to advertising it again, or maybe even posting some of the results and showing some of the highest graded sprites each month, which would also give people more incentive to take part and do good.

Yeah, I know you work.. there's no perfect solution here x.x

And as far as videos go..at least with the announcement, we got a lot of people the first round or so who made C quality sprites, and then they left.
I also think so many people submit to PAIR purely because they get to be in a video.

I was thinking I could reach out to people on neoseeker.. but that contest there died several years ago already- all the people who participated might have already moved on.

..Also when I did make round update videos nobody cared >.<

That's why I think we should do a monthly review of this. We can feature sprites directly, instead of just saying who won, and scrolling through the list of what was submitted.

Hm.. pitch me a good way to do this then, because I'd have to attain approval, and I only become more and more ashamed of my video contributions..

How about we just make an endless open round? Where we can just upload sprites and that can be reviewed whenever. No deadline?

Ehhh, that kind of defeats the purpouse of the contest - to challange you by having you do sprites you otherwise wouldn't do. And you basicly already have that simply by submiting to the Pixel Art section of the forum

Well.. it's 7-2 in favor of continuing. Would have liked more votes.. but hm.
But I guess I'll continue. Anybody have some round suggestions?

(also guess I need to ask LM more directly how he thinks videos will help because I know I can't make anything of quality).

Maybe your personal favorites or something. I think this would bring up the contest and the forum in general.

Maybe have a round where you do a pokemon sprite in the style of another game. Maybe don't allow OWs because that would make it way too easy.
