    Premades do suck, most people depend on them due to they can't always come up with something fresh.. But if Daecu was to stop allowing premades chances are the Sotw will get a lot less entries.

    That's one of the reasons, especially during the school year, a lot of our members come on in passing and pull up a tag they made and toss it in. Its also just plain hard to know whether or not it is a premade, they could have made a tag a year ago and it was brilliant, but never posted it online etc. If we were to tell members that they couldn't enter a signature they've posted on here before then the signatures section would get a lot less posts. It would really just kinda hurt everything we have going :/ the best we can do is to encourage making a NEW tag, to be absolutely sure it will fit the theme. That's one reason that I promote theme's of things like the newest games, or the latest movies.

    When you read a book that has the genre "Fantasy" What do you expect?

    Not science fiction, not abstract, not an autobiography: Fantasy.

    Think Lord of the Rings, Warhammer (NOT 40K), werewolves, fairies, pixies, dragons, elves dwarves etc.

    No robots, guns, lasers, flying cars, cars in general etc.

    "Fantasy is a genre that uses magic and other supernatural forms as a primary element of plot, theme, and/or setting. Fantasy is generally distinguished from science fiction and horror by the expectation that it steers clear of technological and macabre themes."


    No need to say that the theme sucks just because you don't know what fantasy is.

    I would consider it science fiction, mainly because of the modern pistol and setting of hell-boy. (kiki's tag that is).

    I didn't know im not aloud to have an opinion anymore. And yes i know what fantasy means, but using it as a theme for signatures, it can be used for literally anything.
