As you all know, I'm a bit of a bitch sometimes.
It's just that I'm blunt, I'm not rude...usually, I just don't understand why people sugar coat everything it really doesn't help anyone.
And on top of that I take my hobbies seriously....I don't like it when I suck at a class/role in WoW I HAVE to learn it, and I don't like it when people half ass Modeling Competitions...whether it be competing, judging or hosting. My motto is, ''If you're going to do it, might as well do it well''.
But I might have gone a little too far this time and hurt someones feelings.
Yeah slap me on the wrist but I hate this wave of shitty judges we have currently rocking the forums....people who have never done a modeling comp before in their life and think that the fact they have played The Sims for the past 3 years and own a camera irl makes them an expert at scoring peoples creations...images some people have spent hours putting together.
Now I'm no means an expert, my entries are still very much hit and miss as most peoples are....except Cele shes like....not human lol. However I do know quite a bit, I've been around for a while now, and the whole time I've been in at least 5 comps at once.....and I've only been eliminated once (though I've had to drop out of a few)
It makes me sad when someone submits an image that has gridlines all over it, or has the walls down etc basic mistakes, and the judges don't even mention it. Meaning new competitors aren't even learning the basics to help them improve to the level of being able to compete in say...Strike a Pose...or a Berry Sweet Competition and last beyond the first round. That in turn means less high level competitors for the rest of the old timers.....we end up competing against the same old folks over and over again...facing the same people in finales.
JK has created a great guildline's for judges post....but sadly not many of these new hosts and judges are going to read it....believing that they already judge fairly and provide helpful feedback to their contestants....when most of them might as well not even write anything compared to the kinds of comments you get in the comps of more experienced judges and hosts (Bliss and JK are great examples).
And I'm the big mean meanie when I try to help these simmers out by mentioning the shit that their judges didn't bother (or didn't notice, or in some cases even know about lol). It's cool I'll take the slaps in the face...in the hope the quality of entries, competitors, competitions and judges increases.
