so you are suggesting Helm variants be the theme then? I would second that, sounds fun. or are you thinking nothing but Helm be the theme? because that sounds terribly limiting and i do not second.

Not sure if it would be Helm or something else. That could be decided later or by the random weave generator. Very Happy

so your suggestion is we all do the same weave chosen by an admin on the random weave generator? Sad i just tried that and got japanese dragonscale and as nice a weave as that is i feel it does little to keep our options open using this haphazard method. i would also like to note personally i consider japanese dragonscale to be a helm variant.

Something like that. I'm sure it would be vote between some basic weaves.

Theme: floor sweepings (and other random rings)

To make the entry from rings you picked up off the floor (or TRL's floor) or random-mix packets, or just grab a random handful of rings, or roll a dice to pick what rings to use.

RANDOMNESS!

Surely a challenge.

I like the two tone idea (or multi tone), or the no gallery submitted one; that would leave a good bit to work with.

I like the pet one too Wink

I saw in an older thread an Elements idea (earth, air, water, fire); I think that would be cool with colors.

Are you seconding two tone, weave without gallery submissions (already seconded), and pet chainmaille? Also, are you suggesting elements with colors as a theme?

How about Traditional 4-1? A contest consisting of pieces using both E4-1 and J4-1, but no other weaves? This could incorporate tons of pieces so lots of people could enter!

Would that include Persian 4-1, Spiral4-1 (and JPL), etc. and all the variants with different ring sizes?

Thanks, I actually meant to include the different ring sizes. And the persian and spiral weaves would be a great addition! But adding in the variants might cause some confusion among some people. ie; is e6-1 a variant of e4-1. So what if the contest was just 4-1, any weave where only 4 rings go into 1?
