2018-10-04: Search server active for recent posts, rebuilding for older posts. RebeccaBlackTech restored after host's storage had a 2nd SAN hiccup on 9/24. No damage, but we need to import posts from the a contingency scraper. Many thanks to our new tetrarchy of sysadmins who worked to fix this complex service after the loss of the original admin. More info later. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.

Cosplay Contest Cheaters

No.10029987 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
A recent post got me thinking about cosplayers who make a habit of cheating in masquerades or craftsmanship contests, especially since some contests have cash prizes attached now. Let's get a list going of cosplayers to be wary of, and any interesting stories you have about contest cheating. This can include:

>Claiming you made a mass-produced cosplay
>Claiming you made a commissioned cosplay
>Lying about how a part of a cosplay was made, or if it was made at all
>Repeated sandbagging (aka entering multiple contests with a cosplay that already won a more prestigious contest)
>Sandbagging the same convention with the same cosplay
