"<21:48:19 ModusPonenz> so it sounds like you folks have this idea that an entry is not a proper pixel art entry unless each pixel was placed one at a time with a pencil tool "

why yes, we do have this idea

Ultimately it's not possible to determine whether a pixel entry was made with only a pencil tool because everything can be faked and there's never any solid evidence that someone used it exclusively. If we wanna be really strict about it then you'd get next to no participation in these battles.

It doesn't even matter what the style is. I could automate the entire thing and then fool all of you guys while I run away with all the medals. I'd do this just to spite everyone who sees this strictly but I have more fun things to waste my time on.

Let's not make BotB a NO FUN ALLOWED place tbh.

Botb. where the points are made up and the rules don't matter.

By that logic anyone would break the rules deliberately and not give a damn.

Also I'm willing to bet 99% of all pixel entries don't look anything like pixel art at all yet no one has been ailed for it (actual cheaters/rulebreakers don't count).

not every single pixel has to be placed by hand (i use copypasta and some line tools - never thicker than 1px) but auto-antialiasing that generates a ton of colors is NOT pixel art and a giant no-no =) it's just not pixel art, period =)) it's basically the only thing i look for when being critical. auto-antialiasing resulting in too much colors (without limiting the palette at the end which at least would be a compensation - see 16bit era!) will result in very low votes from my side >=) it's not about having no fun, it's about the fact that real pixel art needs a fuckton of passion and dedication and i couldn't even 25% finish my entry because it's not really possible in 1 hour - for me! i should maybe get a 'better' program than mspaint with some predefined dither patterns - i 'wasted' most of the time of the ohb removing the excess pixels at the edges of the sweater ^^

edit:
LONG STORY SHORT IF YOU WANT NO RULES HOST DRAW NOT PIXEL =) it's not mean, it's logical

edit2:
as far as i can tell noone used auto-antialiasing in this ohb tho, probably also because i ranted so hard in irc and lowvoted everyone except 1 entry in the former ohb hahaha. in my already critical eyes, the entries of this ohb here are ok!
(yes, Midori's entry too, it uses manual antialiasing with manually chosen colors, GOOD BOY/GIRL, THAT'S HOW IT'S DONE <3)
