As you know we're approaching end of FS 2, which will of course open the doors to FS 3.
We've been pretty lax with FS 2 as far as deadlines goes, which is fine by me. But i want to hear from everyone who is and will be participating?

Should we keep things as they are: that being 3 days per page but if you need more time, just letting us know usually give it to you.

Should we change things up a bit? Maybe allow for a week between pages, but if you miss your deadline then you're out.

I realize that there are pros and cons to each(one will make for a much quicker round, but also has a larger percent chance to loose more people, the other makes the rounds much longer, but most people will get to stick around to fight)

So your input is greatly appreciated. thanks in advance.


In service,
Draxenn

Well, firstly I would like to come in for FS 3 (If I'm able to) but I do agree that it should be a little tighter rules.

But then again some people might have a really good excuse (like Kaminari) so maybe you could do as you say but give some exeptions.

Argh sleep deprevation is hitting me like a rock -_-

Don't mind either way, but I suggest something in between, i.e. 4-5 days and an extra life before you're kicked out.

I will probably participate. It has been fun and good for drawing skills.

I have been unreliable in the third round of FS2, but it ws because of this month. Usually I'm on time for deadlines (of all kinds) so I wouldn't mind either the same rules or stricter ones. I like the idea of ‘a week to make it or you’re out' but still I think there would have to be some exceptions to the rule to guard against unnecessary dropping out rate. Mainly to allow for extra time if the person notifies in advance of another deadline he/she will HAVE to keep though.

Is this helpful?

Cthulhu wishes his scanner would work. Cthulhu would never miss a deadline.

Cthulhu hopes he can get into FS4.

Cthulhu can dream, can't he?

Thanks for the input everyone. It really does help.

I think we'll go with 5 days to put up a page. That's how a majority of webcomics update, so it should make it a bit simpler.
And you'll have one extra life, as aqua_ng put it.

That being said, the rules aren't engraved in granite. Should something come up or happen, i'm sure arrangements can be made to postpone the fight or possibly get a guest artist.
That's something that I think everyone participating might want to have handy. It won't be a requirement, but I think it's a good idea.

I won't be participating in the next round because i'm running it. Radec's compy is still fritzy. So to avoid any conflict of interests, i'll stay out and run it from this side.
Looking forward to fs3! =D

I WOULD LIKE TO SIGN UP, SIR!
I have been waiting for this for loooooooooooonnggg!!!

I think that a week or two is enough, unless we hear from the fighter. I'm just worried in case piles of coursework appear in front of me.

You can count me in the next fightsplosion!

I believe we should have 4-5 days for submissions. A week would be too long and the fights would go by slowly…..slowly killing the excitment for FS and 3 days just seems too short.

Also I think we should be able to choose to tag team. If two people who are fighting eachother want to tag up and win fightsplosion I say we should let them do that!

If so many previous participants are rejoining, maybe you should add a few more empty slots to be filled by newbies.

Also, after the tournaments done, you could have a free-for-all battle with the losers. each person gets two turns and then voting to see who gets the much sought after Honorary Mention.

I plan to be in the next FS if at all possible. I agree with Warsprite and Aqua, 4-5 days unless something big and unaviodable comes up.

I'm taking all these suggestions into consideration.
when this last bout is over, i'll be posting the amended guidelines and i think everyone'll be happy with them.

I believe 4-5 day deadline and one extension. The extension only applies if the artist asks for it. But people have already said that. Man from the looks of the people that are going to compete. If I make it I'll be destroyed. That's if I make it.
Rockin it fatboy style.

With how long the current FS is taking. I'm starting to worry about my eligibility. I plan on taking two weeks of vacation in December, but I seriously want in. Is there a planned date for the next FS to start?

Looking to start it after this round comes to a close.
I'll do my best to plan things so that you should either be done your round before vacation, or you start your round upon return.

So when the time comes and you manage to get on the list of fighters, pq me your departure and return date and i'll do my best to accomodate.

I'd like to, but I don't think I'll be participating. I put everything I had into my Fightpslosion pages, and it killed me. Made it really tough to get other updates and projects out of the way, even though it was good practice and I had fun at first.

Still, I'd help people out, but I think Zak is going to sit this one out.

…Dane however….

I wouldn't mind joining FS 3.
And yeah, I think the rules are pretty good as they are. You don't want to make it to short that people don't want to enter, but you don't want to make it to long that it takes forever to finish. I think 3 days is a good length.

I'm going to keep entering until I make it past round one. That's my new goal in life… Reach round 2 of FS.

BFH will return to actually fight for once, and I will probably hand-draw him this time and trace it digitally. So basically, I'm not going to be doing MS Paint again.

I'm still mad that I had to drop out last time, especially since my vacation ended while the first half of Round 1 was still going on and there was a week of preparation for me to get ready for my battle, but I didn't want the person who fought in place of me to get mad because I'm nice like that.

Wouldn't it be awesome if we almost fought a third time?
