http://forum.spore.com/jforum/posts/list/72589.page

I was looking forward to this at first, but browsing through the posts, I can't help but feel this is gonna flop.

The entire create-off can be summed up like this: A random group of forum users determines whether or not you are a good creator as you willingly compete with their other patsies for the title of "Greatest Creator". As in, better than everyone else on the Sporum Greatest Creator. Oh my.

Some of the reasons people were prevented from entering are absurd. But one stands out from all the rest:

"Your past creations must be good quality to be one of the 36 entrants."

Well, that's a bit vague. How far back are we talking about? No one, and I mean NO ONE, has been good from the start...This demand defies what skill really is:

Skill is something that needs to be developed over time, and is based on how well a person manages to use the tools at his disposal. The best creator would be someone who knows the editors inside and out and uses that knowledge to his advantage to make creations that in the end, he is satisfied with, or to create things that differ from the norm. And the skill will be lost if the creator does not practice, so the best creator would be constantly challenging himself, striving to do the very best he can.

By this definition, anyone who has put effort into a creation, even one that looks like the love-child of Cthulhu and Tren Krom, is a good creator. That's a lot of people.

Frankly, there's very little purpose to this contest. All it will lead to, inevitably, is a lot of bruised egos and one very over-inflated one.

Community challenges should be less about "who is the better creator" and more about inspiring creativity to begin with. And considering that Spore is losing a lot of creative users, I think we could use some more inspiration.

TL;DR Pointless contest. More focus needs to be placed on inspiring creativity in the community, not finding out who is the best.

Share your thoughts.

Um..

Too long of a wait, and too many restrictions.

Lol Groxifer. That guy is the very definition of stupid.


Your very own moderator here has been in countless flame wars with him over the most retarded things. For instance.

I called the Grox "robotic kittens" and that set him off like dynamite. He made a grox empire fanclub. Then on an alt he made a petition to get me banned that ended up getting his alt banned.

The very worst thing about him is that hes sucks as a creator and he has 550 subscribers and he actually thinks he is a spore god. Thats part of the reason he has stupidly high standards.



This guy is a serious nut job.

Well said, Drew. Normally I would participate in this create-off because I like being rebellious, but each round is a month long. And there's no chance I'll remember the contest after that long.

Someone was actually prevented from joining for not having a 2-star Karma rating on the Sporum.

Because that totally has everything to do with your skill as a creator, am I right? face plam

This guy is a few pages short of a novel.
