    It's not, but mods aren't interested in doing their job so we've had to take matters into our own hands.
    Why the fuck hasn't someone made you a mod yet prox? You'd make a good mod. Somebody make prox a mod so he can officiate the contest thread.

    Well then lets make it official.

    Thanks 'Dise, I think my vote would be a tie between Fug and Prox. Proxmod for president!!!

    Man I've never made a gif though!! Is there a quick and dirty tut somewhere for Photoshop somewhere? EDIT - So Google says to use Imageready so I guess thats that. This should be fun.

    We should all use our entries here to support Prox for mod candidacy. How does that work anyway?

    I made a mouse drawn piece of shit to show my love for Proxies new challenge, and to support his bid for moderatorship.

    NSFW and not an official entry.

    You see, this is exactly why the mods don't do shit around here. Why the fuck should they pander to this shit when there's other more important shit they should be doing instead of holding your goddamn hand through a goddamn contest thread.

    Being a mod doesn't give you super powers or even the organizational ability to run one of these fucking things. Any one of you retards could have taken the reins and went with it, yet you sit around waiting to be hand fed by bombs and his magical fucking ability to sticky a thread. Now that you've all starved to death, I hope you're fucking happy.

    Are you finished? A mod should have established a challenge poll weeks ago; when that didn't happen, you didn't become a replacement mod.

    No, I'm not a mod. I'm a perfectly functional human being able to run a fucking challenge thread. Since nobody was taking care of it and everyone said they wanted one, I took the initiative. The entire reason it fell apart is because people think that if a mod is running the show, the ass pats you get for winning are somehow more official.

    So fuck it. Either get with the community participation or get the fuck out. Maybe a mod can come along and sticky the fucking thing, and maybe he can set up a poll when we're done. Otherwise we don't need a fucking mod here to have a good time and share art.

    blah blah blah

    Your "initiative" might have been a good idea if it seemed serious:
    Okay, here's what we'll do: everyone pm me with your vote and I'll tally them up.

    Don't worry about any corruption; I want you all to lose equally.

    The entire reason it fell apart is because it seemed like a pure joke.


    Anyway, everything else you're saying is true, and this dance challenge is a good idea.

    Prox, this is a great idea for a contest and I'm going to laugh my ass off at the entries if it goes ahead.

    But I don't know if I'll have time to enter myself; last time I animated something I ended up clawing off part of my frontal lobe.

    So we can combine them all at the end and have a PA:AC Dance off party?

    Yes, so we can have longer animations. 64 c 64 is pretty big. And its like you can use them in your avatars.

    One of the easiest animation programs to learn is Eztoon. You will only get black and white pixel gifs out of it, but it is efficient.

    (this was made in eztoon: )

    Download it here:
    http://www.superfundungeonrun.com/easytoon/

    You can animate in PS but its a pain in the fucking neck.

    This just goes to show how little I know of animating and also how to moonwalk! Now that my first one is out of the way, I think I can make something better next time.

    Man animation is annoying but also fun to do. It looks like absolute crap, but it's my first animation ever and to be honest I didn't put a hell lot of effort in it :oops:
    oh and ditto to that adam, next one will be better. I've learned a lot from this
