Ugh... these heads should at least follow the same style as the first ten. Kind of a simple cartoonish style, which of course, head1000 doesn't follow and should be deleted. Graal is a game that's very "alive", and head1000 reminds me of a dead freaking fish. :rolleyes: So, we should delete that head, hold a new contest, and not judge the entries on how well they're shaded or how realistic they look. Because I really don't want to see realism on Graal.

You guys are always up in arms about recolors...you say it's uncreative, I say it's freaking ESSENTIAL.
I mean, take Ninji Castle. Bunch of guys all looking exactly the same, because at the time they put it up, there WERE no Ninji Recolors. Later, the white bandana recolor and the scarred recolor and the AznAndy recolor and all that got up, it got a bit better, but they had to use a totally unrelated desert-guy head for their elite guards.
Same thing goes for a lot of things. If there were no recolors of the Judge head, there would be no Bruges! No Brugites! Then what would the LAT Uniform be?
Head recolors are veeery important if you're gonna make a village, and you want everyone to look basically the same with SOME variation...or if you just want a different look.
Granted, there are exceptions. That whole series of albino lizard girls with different colored hair, for example...if you're gonna recolor a head, recolor a GOOD one, like the Peach head...
That's become the standard in female heads. If you want a head just like that, but with blue hair, you're set...

Tyhm brings up a good point. How about instead of rejecting new colored heads you just take them and the person who made the original gets the credit.

GET RID OF STUPID STUPID DUMB ANNOYING NUMBERS IN HEADS.

I could understand it when there were like 100 heads, but now there are way over 1000 so it's really hard to find a head.

*Cough* So that's EXACTLY why a sword I did not re-color that I made originally got rejected the for being a re-color, right?

I did not pick the winner for head1000.gif. If I re-did the contest zorro might get a little upset so unless he okays it I can't do anything about that. I really don't know if there is a big reaons why we use #'s. I think the main point is to keep the head's organized. Galen and I have decided that the contest winners will be able to pick (1) head that they want to be personally named. In the recent weeks i have noticed not to many people like getting involved in the contest so in the next few days we will be thinking up some new prizes and advantages to wining. About the recolors...... I agree with tyhm BUT I do not agree with stealing someones work if you just a regular graal player. Go out on a limb and make your on graphics. I DO and will continue to accept recolors from staff if its reasonable (EX. LAT). I see no point in need a recolor if your just a graal player. Many of the excuses I recieve are "I NEED THIS HEAD TO MATCH MY CLOTHES ON GRAAL". I'm sorry but if everyone on graal needed The heads to match their own clothes on graal there would be chaos. So recolors will be accepted if a majority thinks it should be done. AS for people using the excuse "BUT THIS HEAD IS RECOLORED WHY CAN'T MINE BE", Those heads that are recolors are there for a reason either (LAT) uses them or A majority do use them.

Hmm.. What else........ Oh yeah in a week I will be receiving file manager access as well as FTP access. This is going to help greatly because new options will allow me to Delete, Rename, Replace, Move, Download, Upload graphics. So I will take extra time to go through everyone's suggestions because now I have the option of doing something about it.

Thanks,
Michael

Well, I say that if you want to recolor a head, find out who the owner is, and ask them permission and then when you apply, mention that the creator of the head allowed you to do it, then the graphics despartment can e-mail the owner, inquiring as to if its okay or not, then its accepted or rejected based upon what the creator says.

Sometimes the creator doesn't want his/her stuff recolored. I think thats their right. Its their graphic.

It is, actually. Even if you copyright the graphic under your own company, once you submit it to Graal Online, your ownership of it is then transfered to Graal Online and YOUR ownership becomes null.

I agree completely. Oh, and the sleep koji head (god that's the best head in the game) needs to be added.
