The question may have occurred to you, what is the winning formula in these Comic Contests? Well, I've gone and done a bit of research and found which elements are most common in each of the nine positions (3 backgrounds, 6 characters) in the 36 strips comprising the 35 contest winners thus far. To wit:

For every frame, Background3 wins more often than any other background.

The most common winning element on the left side of the middle frame is tv1-1.

And so forth.

Putting it all together, one could conclude that this is the winning formula:

[Click to view comic: 'CC36: The "ALL" Template']

By the way, those are 'none's in positions 2 and 4, not height props.

For CC36, you have two options: the ALL option or the NONE option.

If you choose the ALL option, take the template cartoon shown above, and add dialogue, thoughts and narration to make it funny. No changes to the template are permitted.

If you choose the NONE option, make a comic that shares no elements with a previous winning cartoon. I've done the hard part; below I will share with you the forbidden elements in a NONE comic. Some of these names may not be exact, but their meaning should be clear:

--------------

If I made any mistakes on that list, it's my fault, not yours; assume it's right. Deadline is Friday morning at 10:30 Eastern time (14:30 GMT).

Be funny, be creative, have fun!

Since the stripcreator is down, I'm going with a nothing comic as well. I was gonna write it out as a text adventure, but I can never remember how to spell Antidorcas marsupialis, which would have been conveniently played by the pink donkey.

You've had time to stew on these, and will have plenty of time to enter those comics, assuming no further interruptions. Closing time remains just over 48 hours from now, at 10:30 AM Eastern on Friday.

I'm assuming that props:height1 & props:height2 aren't the same as 'none'

That is correct, but there are a couple places height2 is not allowed.

Well well, Ranma X, you're back after only a 24 contest absence. And with a good reference. Hmm.

Anyway, this was the most obvious joke I could come up with, and people like obvious humor, so...

Going through each contest winner and tallying the characters used? An impressive waste of time, in my opinion. Good job.

Yeah, I know the running 'homoerotic' gag is getting a bit tired, but I do have a great deal of latent homosexuality to suppress, you know...

Pretty clear here, there's a reason why the NONE template hasn't won, and the ALL one has, given the number of entries each received. Still, I was surprised to see that your friend and mine, the Red Robot, has never been part of a winning entry. And he still hasn't, having not even entered CC36.

Anyway, here are the nominees for CC36 champion:

boorite, for Resistance is useful
descolada99b, for Complying With Rules, Changing One Thing :)
NeoVid, for Follow the template
DexX, for Harold gets a nasty shock...
and
gabe_billings, for Party On, Gabe

And the winner is ...
