    Actually, it's a form of Soviet flag. Not just communist in general. The Hammer and Sickle represent the working class, and was a symbol devised during the Russian Revolution of 1917, or the Bolshevik's Uprising.

    Welp, it's been too long to not at least throw up my own scores. Haven't heard from Wade myself, same as all of you. My scores will be forthcoming, sorry guys.

    Edit: Okay, here we go! I'm gonna call 'em like I see 'em guys, remember, no judging scores should be taken as offense.

    Shading: 4/10
    Design: 5/10
    I felt like the color work was a bit inconsistent, and I don't see a ton of shading here, honestly. The spirit of the skin is rather nice though.

    Shading: 5/10
    Design: 6/10
    The blocky style of shading is visually appealing, though uncreative. I do like the colors used, though. Lot of contrast in there.

    Shading: 4/10
    Design: 6/10

    Adorable for sure, and well detailed. I liked the bright colors, but the dead blacks were less attractive. Overall, the colors don't mesh that well. But all the bright color you did pack in redeems it somewhat.

    Shading: 5/10
    Design: 5/10

    I'm a fan of the soft colors used for the chest and all, but I don't see a ton of shading on here, and the face shading seems a tiny bit awkward.

    http://www.planetminecraft.com/skin/the ... t-contest/

    Shading: 4/10
    Design: 8/10

    I love the simplicity of this skin. The meshing of the colors is really nice, and all in all it's a very complete feeling skin. But it almost entirely lacks comprehensive shading. Which is fine, it's the style you're using, but I still have to judge it on that for this contest.

    Shading: 6/10
    Design: 5/10

    I like the shading you used here, though there's no hue shifting. Overall, looks good, but could definetly be better!

    http://www.planetminecraft.com/skin/mic ... n-contest/

    Shading: 4/10
    Design: 5/10

    There's not a ton done here, other than the muscle work, which looks pretty good. It could also be a bit overdone though, but I think you pulled it off.

    http://www.planetminecraft.com/skin/rog ... s-contest/

    Shading: 6/10
    Design: 5/10

    The shading on this one looks nice, even if it does resemble Kefka's template. I do think the face looks pretty...awkward, though. Mouth's probably shouldn't be as wide as the entire forehead.

    http://www.planetminecraft.com/skin/cri ... -contest-/

    Shading: 5/10
    Design: 5/10

    I think this skin is in need of some hue shifting and color changes. But I definetly respect the shading you did do, and the work you did with the design. It could just use a lot of improvements.


    And that's all, folks!

    1. Why should I interview you?

    Dude. DUDE. It's me. I make skins. I just got to level 24.
    I'm just kidding, no one really knows me. Dunno, I'm fun, I guess. Bit sarcastic, but eh.

    2. How often do you come on?
    Every day. I've become quite...integrated into the community.

    3. How enthusiastic are you about interviews?
    Come at me. That's what I've got to say about that. Interviews are awesome. Totes amaze. All that stuff. Haven't gotten to one yet, so I'd love to, yeah.

    4. Gender
    Yeah I was lying, I'm a guy.

    Hammerfell is notoriously bad at getting along with Highrock, an alliance between them, in 4E 201, seems extremely unlikely.
    Skyrim is not nearly as strong as Hammerfell. Even if the stormcloaks took over, we all know the Thalmor-led Dominion is stronger even than the Empire. And considering the current alliance with the Empire, they would just march through Cyrodiil, flatten Skyrim, and possibly destroy High Hrothgar, which is likely one of the towers. Highrock also, wouldn't stand a chance. It lacks strong leadership, and is mostly made up of warring families and houses. Getting the entirety of Highrock to ally with anyone would be a chore. Hammerfell also has two opposing factions, in the Crowns and the Forebears. But they, for the most part, are uniting against the Thalmor as a common enemy, which makes Hammerfell far stronger than either High Rock or Skyrim, and as they don't even share a religion with either, they have absolutely no reason to come to the aid of the weaker provinces. Hammerfell can hold it's own, and it doesn't need help.

    Pertaining to the actual question, as has been said before, the Empire is only making the smart decision, and trying to rebuild their strength. Given enough time and enough peace, they could come back strong and actually face the Aldmeri. But they're the only chance Tamriel has. A Hammerfall-Highrock-Skyrim alliance wouldn't be effective enough or organized enough to actually cooridinate an offense. The Empire, as a unifing force, is the only chance of that. For Tamriel's sake, the Empire needs to survive, and it needs to thrive.
    Ulfric is a fool. He can't see the bigger picture, and he's being petty and obstinate. Rupturing Skyrim during this time of crisis is the worst he could do for Skyrim's health and Tamriel's health as a whole. On the racism bit, he did welcome in the Dunmer refugees from Vvarydenfell, but at the same time, he treated them like second-class citizens.
    You could actually draw a lot of parallels to Hitler. Both were great speakers, who roused their people behind the idea of unfair treatment, while at the same time oppressing another race.

    And that's my piece.

    Yeah, once it has the saving icon in the corner, if that doesn't disappear and you get redirected to the skin's page, just close the page or go to your profile, wait a few minutes, and it should be uploaded anyway.

    I'm fairly sure he did. Don't worry. You only double-posted it and all.
    Come on, let's get some more people in here! I need more competeition, or else I'll get lazy! Let's see what other awesome super heroes we create skins for! I'd love to see someone tackles some of the other Avengers, for one. I also think that Watchmen would provide some good ideas.

    Having participated in many "roleplay servers" over time, I feel I can offer some insight and advice.

    1- Roleplay.
    Roleplay is by the far the most important part. It's the reason you're making the server at all. Roleplaying revolves around the foundation of characters, and deep, developed, though-out characters are the backbone of the server. It organically spawns things like relationships, rivalries, politics, and intrigue. Roleplay should rule over all things; it should inform all decisions and all gameplay. This means that "artificial" institutions (such as PvP, set Factions, and Out-Of-Character interaction) have no place anywhere near a server that truly wishes to base itself on RP.

    2. Economy.
    Sadly, having a player-run economy is extremely difficult to pull off without extensive measures and a large player base. Things like inflation, exploits, and supply-and-demand are complicated and hard to deal with and prepare for. While in practice, this would be the most desirable thing, it's much better to attempt this on a smaller scale, if at all. Provide a certain amount of funds for each player when they start, and make sure no other money is put into circulation, otherwise you'll have issues on your hands.

    3. Player-Quality
    Your server is only as good as the player base. Roleplay revolves around interacting with others; if those around you suck at it, it won't be any fun. Thus, it's important to ensure your playerbase is made up of skillful, respectful, and intelligent people. Those who can convincingly portray a flawed human interacting with their surroundings and others can be hard to find, but roleplaying with them is a joy. Applications and whitelists are important things to ensure a high standard among your community. Don't settle for less, it will show, and quality should be valued over quantity.

    That's all I have to say for now, I believe. Good luck with your server.
