This entry blatantly cheats because it's not a manually created SVG? Or does it? The rules seem unclear about it, simply saying "currently there is no consensus" :P

I worked on it as fast as I could, since I might not get more Botb time for a while after this, but it still took 4 hours (which is admittedly not that much)

Awww thanks! - but - does it actually cheat, given that it's not a manually coded SVG but was made with inkscape?

"does it actually cheat(...)" i don't think it does as it's still a .svg anyway; if so, using converters such as mod2vic would also be cheating, or going a bit farther, using famitrackeris cheating because you're not manually coding it in assembly (ok this is way too far lmao but you get the idea)

nevertheless, this is great; nice to be in it!

Thanks! You were fun to draw :3

Quoting the SVG description in lyceum:

"There is currently no consensus on whether SVG creation software (such as Inkscape) should be used or whether the SVGs should be created manually using XML (i.e. using a text editor). As of this writing, the only hosted SVG compos have opted for manually created SVGs."

This must be some very old text then?

Captures the deformed face with mildly frustrated expression pretty well. Also love the stem and hair beads you made out of background objects.

Inkscape isn't specified as prohibited, so it is technically allowed. However, the same could be said for PCM in NSF - that started a huge angry discussion a while back and a consensus was never reached.

I suppose it is a grafxicist category and not a codist one, so Inkscape should be allowed. But I'd also argue that we don't have enough codist categories!!

@ipi bytebeat should be made a codist category then, imo; since a lot of programs export .svg, you don't need to code it yourself unless you want to, whereas with bytebeat, coding is pretty much the point of the format.

also yeah, no consensus on something generally means it's allowed; but it's also up to the voter if they consider it "cheating" or not. i don't think anyone'll downvote svg entries that weren't made manually

and while we're at it. a codist icon is also needed, because there are a few codists on here, who doesnt have a nice icon next to their class.

i guess this is not good place to discuss that. better start another thread for it
