LuxShoppe Showdown

Post by mbauer » Tue Aug 23, 2005 5:49 pm

Hello my fellow luxers,

There are 5 steps to a successfull recovery from the hall of the damned. The 1st step is to bring upon luxtopia a friendly new past time. Since so many of us like to manipulate photos to the amusement of ourselves and others, I thought it might be a great idea to combine that with our love of battle. So without further ado I present:

LuxShoppe Showdown!

Here's how it works:

A LuxShoppe Showdown is a battle between 2 luxers using the powers of adobe (or adobe like powers). 1 luxer chooses an opponent that they would like to challenge to a LuxShoppe Showdown. This challenge is posted here in the pub for all to see. The opponenet has up to 3 days to accept the challenge. Once the challenge is accepted the LuxShoppe Showdown is underway.

The Showdown
-Each luxer involved in a LuxShoppe Showdown gets 3 jabs, for a total of 6 jabs per Showdown.

-Each jab must occur no more than 3 days after the last.

-If 3 days expires then the last luxer to jab is declared the winner.

-Once all 6 jabs are complete a winner is chosen by QUASAR!!!

The Jabs
-Each Jab must consist of a thumbnail jpeg, posted in the Pub forum, and a .psd file passed between players via e-mail.

-The challenging luxer makes their 1st jab, first by posting an image and emailing the .psd to his/her opponent.

-The opponent then has up to 3 days to create a new image from that .psd file and post it, this is the opponents 1st jab.

-The new .psd is then sent back to the challenger for the challenger to make his/her 2nd jab. And so and and so forth until each player completes their 3 jabs.

The Rules
-Each jab image must have some element of the previous jab image visible, it cannot be a totally new image.

-The image must have something to do with Lux, Sillysoft, inside jokes, stuff in the forums, world domination, etc. You can use any imagery you'd like as long as it pertains to the above mentioned stuff.

-A showdown cannot be launched with just a single image it must be a compilation of at least 2 images or graphic elements.

-Players can only post images during their turn.

The Motivation

-Once the LuxShoppe Showdown is completed, QUASAR!!! chooses a winner and the winning image is posted in the sillysoft art gallery for all to ooo and aww over for all eternity. Plus you get bragging rights and are ordained with the powers of adobe. The losers gets ridiculed, pointed and laughed at, and must wear the boa of shame.

props to istockphot for actually coming up with the idea
