Competition Themes

Does anyone have suggestions for a theme for the next ZA Fur competition?

UwU/ i concur with the purple... er, blue dinosaur. its seems to usually come down to something either funny or sexy anyway so short of having the theme be yiff lets cut to the cheese and make it satire of our beloved home, Zafur. we have such great memories here to immortalize in art. <w< there is the chance that some dingus may enter a blank canvas and win but hey that would be funny too.

What about pet role reversal?

Many of us have pets, it might be funny to see anthropomorphised versions of our pets have our fursonas as their pets.

While I disagree with the implication that Sudan's artpiece won because of its sexappeal, I would like to see more ZAFur-inspired art so long as people are mature about it and that it doesn't devolve into personal attacks. *imagines an American-civil-war themed battle with ZAFur as the Union and Anthroculture/TheFurnace as the Confederates.* 😋
Hahaha! :lol:

UwU/ Mr. Yeen i'm gonna have to point out the fact that you are the only one taking that "implication" seriously. we in the industry refer to things like that as an "inside joke" while not particularly funny in of themselves inside jokes serve to remind people of something funny that happened in the past... you know, like a bunch of people getting their panties all in a bunch over something silly. its called an inside joke because you had to be there to get it. it serves to tighten bonds and make outsiders jealous. that may seem mean to outsiders but it serves to motivate them to seek inclusion. you having been directly involved... <w< you totes shoulda gotten it man... unless you are just trying to troll up some drama again, which mind you is my job so knock it off.

UwU/ its pretty dumb to throw comedic jewls like that into the pond prematurely chubs, intellectual property is infinitely stealable. but i doubt the hate art you are subtly eluding to will find its way into the contest... i mean these peasants covet my golden name, they wont throw away their chances merely on an attempt to be offensive.

Having been there, I know that some people seriously believed that sexappeal played a role, never mind that the character was female in a predominantly queer, male forum. 😛 Can I say that? We should do a ZAFur census to check what our active population is, and what the demographics are.

Also, why would you presume I am being dumb? Typical cat, jumping to the wrong conclusions. Perhaps I have a better idea, or perhaps I won't enter: do you see any art galleries belonging to me? Besides, no hate: the American civil war is just an iconic civil war, and a civil was is analogous to what happened here.

Obligatory salty comment about the sexual preference field options being inconsistent and incomplete.

To be fair, you have never been subtle about your gripes with this forum or individuals on it. Relatively speaking, I would say I was being quite innocent. Funny joke you see? Two factions warring, until they're not. Tee-hee. There's a post I made years back in which I placed my bets. 😇
