As we are on the cusp of beginning the very first popularity contest on the new boards, I feel it is appropriate to lay down the foundation for this thread moving forward. This is also now in the first post, but I want people who have been following along to see it too. :)

First off, I want to take everyone who submitted a list and honor them as the "donors" to the Enemy Exhibit here at the Valdez Museum of Video Game Box Art. These fine individuals include: Lokii, Ixo, WildcatJF, Kirin, Johnny Unusual, Kzinssie, Torzelbaum, Kishi, nataerynn, Beta Metroid, Octopus Prime, Daikaiju, Issun, Dracula, Dr. Nerd, Rascally Badger, and Positronic Brain. The museum greatly appreciates your contributions towards making this an exhibit to remember!

This being a public institution and a place of learning, we have some ground rules.

1) This is the biggest one. DON'T BUST IN HERE AND BE AN ASSHOLE. Seriously. Don't shit on an enemy choice, don't shit on people who picked it, don't shit on how I choose to run the contest, don't shit on me for taking too long to post something. There were times last go around where these situations happened and it made me question doing another one.

I am super excited to be doing this again and I am not in the mood to have someone try to make it a nightmare this time. I see someone try to shit in here, I report to a mod. Let's just have fun!

2) This is a very spur of the moment popularity contest. What happens within could influence the direction the story goes! The final week or so of the Box Art contest was my favorite moment on TT EVER, and I want to maintain that improvisation here.

3) Posts will occur Monday through Friday for official entries for #60 - 26. I may do occasional weekend posts on enemies that were nominated that didn't make it, depending on my energy levels and availability. When #25 happens, I may go to a M/W/F schedule depending on energy. That being said, there may be times I'm too exhausted or busy to draw or write up something, but rest assured it'll happen when I can make it happen.

4) I encourage memories of each enemy we display in the museum! What does seeing the enemy here make you feel as it comes up? Good? Bad? There's all kinds of iconic and obscure foes gathered here from many different games, and I'm super excited to draw them all and see where they take the thread! You get to be a part of that organic process!

5) If you're curious about the comic these characters come from, check out my art blog: https://wildcatjfart.wordpress.com/tag/so-this-webcomic

6) I may reference the old contest from time to time, which is currently being archived. I do have all of the comics on my blog, but the whole cats-as-museum-employee and condiment-and-game-box angle is absent from there, so hopefully sometime soonish I can link the last contest up.

7) I'm running out of rules.

11) So I'm going to stop.

Thank you for taking part in this contest! It should be fun!

Always glad to contribute to the arts.

Is it shitting on a person if I consider their choice of favorite monster as proof of that person being a masochist?
 

Issun

Could be a fren
You don't want us to shit on an entry, but you don't provide directions to the museum bathrooms. *crosses arms in Karen*

3) Posts will occur Monday, Wednesday and Friday for official entries. I may do occasional weekend or Tues/Thurs posts on enemies that were nominated that didn't make it, depending on my energy levels and availability.

Wildcat, I appreciate the challenges of creating all of this content. However, I'm wondering if you've thought about the ramifications for other people who want to run lists.

My thoughts: Posting three times a week for a regular top 50 would take 16 weeks, assuming one entry per post. But since this list is extended to a top 60, we're talking 20 straight weeks of thread, and that's if you maintain your self-imposed schedule, which we are not allowed to question, per your stated rules. I recognize that you're excited to share your art and storyline and make a fitting production of TT 3.0's first-ever list, and live up to the tradition of fun and exciting Top 50 list threads. I get that and I respect it, having been excited to share my own dumb photo comics in the past. But it's worth noting that four months of one list means that's four months, at minimum, in which other posters don't get to make lists of their own.

So if you're committed to your schedule above, would it be worth considering running more than one list simultaneously? That way others could have a chance at it and you'd feel less pressure from having to get yours finished.

Per discussion in the Logistics thread, I have modified my Rule #3:

Hey remember the last time you did one of these and I somehow stumbled into doing supplemental posts to all of your posts and that somehow lead me into doing a deep dive on the weapons grade early 90s racism festering inside some 40 prince of persia variant boxes?

Man, that sure was a thing.
