Comment Wars #19

Sun Jul 24, 2016, 10:15 AM
Welcome to ProjectComment Comment Wars, designed to bring you quality feedback.

Comment War!

  • To enter the Comment Wars, one constructive comment must be left on the piece featured below. Once you have commented, link us your comment in a reply to this journal.
  • Those who comment the most constructively will be placed in positions 1 to 5 by ProjectComment admins. The person in 1st place will be featured next, while those in 2nd to 5th place are bumped up (2nd is now 1st, 5th is now 4th). This frees up a spot for one lucky person.
  • Those placed will have to keep commenting constructively to move up in position. Fail to comment and you will lose your spot. Fail to comment constructively and you will move down in position.

Triumph and Conquer

If you are placed and you continue to comment constructively, you will, eventually, be in 1st place yourself, and recipient of many constructive comments. Even if you are not placed in the top five, you still have a chance of winning!

  • The artist will choose the most constructive comment for them personally and that person will be given 1 free submissions to ProjectComment's Give and Get 2 Comments 5+ lines Gallery Folder.
  • Additionally, 50% of people participating will be randomly chosen to receive one constructive comment. If, overall, 10 people participate, this means 5 people are randomly chosen to receive one constructive comment. If 30 people participate, this means 15 people are randomly chosen to receive one constructive comment. The more the merrier! La la la la

Comment Wars #18

Many thanks to everyone who participated in Round 18 of Comment Wars! Cyres1's personal pick of the most constructive comment was written by MartinBlur here with the explanation that:

"It is the one that helped me the most mainly because of its objectivity and how the commenter got straight to the point/s. It is definitely, out of all the comments, the most beneficial and easiest for future reference."

Meanwhile, war is still among us! Placed in positions are...

4. MartinBlur

5. shiro-hane

Getting to Know YOU! #21

Sun Jul 17, 2016, 5:10 AM
That's right, members of ProjectComment and DeviantArt! It is time that all of us get to know a bit more about each other, admins, commenters and artists alike. It is time that we get to know you!

How this works:
We have a set of questions, some suggested by our admins and some suggested by our members. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to answer these questions as a reply here and reply to someone else!

Let's get to know everyone a bit more! :la:

Our Questions!

1. If you had the power to change ONE event in History, what would it be and why?
(Suggested by Tuntalm)

2. Do you have a memory of the first piece of art you ever made?
If not, how far back can you remember creating any kind of art?
(Suggested by Shining-Scribe)

3. If you were to make a show of your own, would it be animated or 'real-life'? And why?
(Suggested by DeviantDaily)

4. What's your biggest demotivater? (Things that make you give up and quit without a second thought.)
(Suggested by SolidMars)

5. What do you think would be the best, most realistic project to unite artists on DeviantArt?
How would the project be executed?
