COW - Summer Break!
It was a bad idea, Foz, you're a f***** and i will kill you!
Foz, you're not a f***** and i won't kill you, but it still was a bad idea!
No, that's great, COW needs a break to get even better!
WTF is COW?
COW - Summer Break!

COW is tired and needs a break!
The last 4 rounds had clearly less entries than the ones before (especially the last one with only 10 entries)...
This break will be a good chance to increase the interest again and make some artists hungry for the next rounds...
We will use this thread for any posts according to COW meanwhile...post your thoughts, comments or discuss anything which is topic related...
Happy holidays COW and thank you to all who supported this activity with his/her entries, comments, votes and whatever!!!
...oh, and THANK YOU VERY MUCH, MATT DIXON for another cool COW-Image

Actually I think a summer break isn't such a good idea as I have been waiting for my break from school and graduation to participate in this. But no biggie, I'll hone my skills and come here and hopefully have a shot at competing with the others hehe..
i think its really sad and lame that your doing this fozzy. at least could you let sombody else take over?
interest hasnt been lost, the topic quality has however.
maybe you could do 2 week COW's till end of summer, maybe more people would join then + you don't have to stop?
after like two months of having a test or two every week I'll finally be done with them next week and have time for such cool and fun activities like COW, and you decide to take a break.. mega lame, dude
but the last one was my first one and I was really looking forward to more ;__; now I'm gonna have to wait all summer? aw...
i think community activities is overlooked somewhat. people looking for challenges(like myself) are looking in the challenge section... not in the community activities. i'm new to conceptart and think the cow is great.. i was looking to start posting. it is my favorite challenge, or the most useful for what i'm looking to accomplish.
i like the idea of having it bi-weekly, maybe a reminder in the challenge forum might bring in more interest? just a thought.
friday = weeee
Come on, people, there is a life out of this forum...i did this because the interest dropped, just as 0kelvin said...
Until round #14 we had at least 20 entries for each round, here is an overview:
#15 Gluttonous Emperor: 14 Entries
#16 Evolutionary Dead End: 14 Entries
#17 Hill Stomper: 18 entries
#18 Sewer Beast: 10 Entries
So, there is a clear tendency, that whatever the reasons are, members didn't participate like before.
I think that the winners of the last rounds wouldn't have won if the participation were like the rounds before. That's not fair and also not good for the activity...
See it as a Apollo Creed method to light the eye of the tiger in you No pain!!! Adriaaaan...
And for those who are complaining that they have time now...well there are always people who have the time and others don't...but simply the hot weather is definitely a reason not to sit on the pc for more people...
ok, added a poll to see how you feel about this
you could also just open a topic, and each time there aren't 25 good entries add another week to the deadline,... oh, and end it after 4 weeks so it doesn't get too boring and you can do two of those during summer.
if you do get 25 entries it shows you were wrong if you don't get 25, well, at least me and a lot of others have a reason to keep checking our favorite part of this forum
