The Continuous Screenshot Competition 3
Twinned with AOKH

Theme: None
Could Vespacianus please post the theme for the new thread?


The new theme is: Voyage and entries can be submitted before the 20th of May (0:00am Forum Time), voting for the two days after that, starting on the 20th. Results will be announced on the 22nd.

What is this?
The Continuous Screenshot Competition is stolen from AoKH, where it has been active and used for a very long time. It is to promote screenshots, and also to just have fun looking at and making the scenery. Each time there will be a theme in which the screenshot should fit, the winner of last theme is allowed to pick the new one. If a winner wins for the second time in a row, the number 2 is allowed to pick the theme. This thread is it's third installment, and you might be wondering why we need a new thread. This is because of thread corruption: The more posts a thread gets, the more likely it is to corrupt, and I think it would be a big waste if we lost all the links to screenshots from the first installment.

The rules
  • No category may be used twice.
  • You may only enter one screenshot per category.
  • The previous winner can compete in the competition he set the theme for, this is a form of trust, so be honest.
  • Please do not suggest themes for the winner.
  • No altering of screenshots, except for adding text and borders.
  • Modding is allowed.
  • Both AoM and AoM: TT screenshots can be used.
  • You are not allowed to make screenshots from maps created before the competition, but you can use the map for something else after taking the screenshot.
  • No flaming, but constructive comments are allowed.
  • Everyone is allowed to vote one time per competition for one screenshot.
  • The winner of the last round may pick the theme for the new one, he can also add an extra restriction.
  • If same person wins in twice in a row (or more times), the runner-up may pick the new theme.
  • You cannot vote for your own screenshot.

Time between the competitions
We have one week for the competition followed by 2 days to vote, after that the winner can post the new theme and we can start again.

Tips
You can host shots at:
You can make in-game screenshots with the following method:
  1. Press the Print Screen button on your keyboard.
  2. Paste your shot into a program like Paint.

Winners from earlier rounds
All previous winners have been uploaded to the gallery here.

Thank you Lupus, for letting the pun last even less than the time needed to play the average song.

I don't get it...

And I don't get all those weird screenshots in this thread either.

posted 24 October 2008 10:51 AM EDT (US)     1482 / 2512  
I'll explain, Lupus:

There is a philosophical argument that if there is no one around to hear a sound be made before it fades, that the sound never existed because existence only happens in the experience of man (what he sees/hears/feels/smells/tastes and therefore is aware of). If no man was around to hear the tree fall alone in the forest, then how could it make a sound if no person was there to hear it? No one ever heard the sound so how can it be proven to have happened and have any impact on anyone's life? *argue back and forth in circles*

Of course scientists will say, of course it made a sound, because the tree hitting the ground will always make a sound, but the philosophers say, in all practicality, it did not.....

Given get the deep serious philosophical inquiry of the "Does a tree...." question, when Shel Silverstein (author of comics and books) answered the deep question as I portrayed in my post, it kind of brings this "deepness" to a real human touch in classic comedic contrast.

EDIT:
Wait Yeeb!! that's not my submission!! and Hail DID submit a picture (though the post was just a link) no he didn't I misunderstood . He and I were just making fun back and forth of his shot he submitted..

DOUBLE EDIT: Jimmy should win based on his title of the shot alone! Hilarious!

Yes, I've heard that philosophical problem... However, I don't understand all those edited shots by SoV where he has a lot of random figures.

Anyway... Technically it is the ears that make us interpret vibrations to sound. So if no ears are in the area to convert the vibrations of the fallen tree into a sound, there won't be any sound from that tree.

Yes, I know it's not a relevant answer for that question... But still. ^^

I want to clarify that there will be no more taking the mickey. From now on, only submit screenshots relevant to the theme.

Is that your attempt at editing the date? lol Or is the screenshot just fuzzy down there and it's an old shot:P.

Very observant, sword More observant than Yeeb.

Now with 100% less photoshop (actually, it was Paint)

If a tree falls in the forest...

I took the timestamp off of an old screeny, pasted it in, and tried to make the colours match a little bit better, just to see if people would notice .

I've found this a pretty difficult theme, apart from explosions and sexytime that is...
However, here is my entry for "The Big Bang":

Emjer, I sent you an email, to the one in your profile.

Firestorm, that shot made me go 'wow'. I'm picturing a big impact there, and 3 seconds later you'd see a massive explosion.

Very nicely done, this could've matched the 'Silence' theme as well, in my opinion anyway. Me likey!! Me gusta mucho!
