SOTY 2015 - Winner Announcement! (Pg22)

Postby Silent1Unknown » Tue Jan 20, 2015 11:09 pm

INTRODUCTION:

Hi guys,

Welcome to the Screenshot Of The Month contests. Unfortunately I can't promise any prizes this year. It will be just for fun. Hopefully many people can participate.

A lot of the rules are the same as before, and if you are already farmiliar with them, just read the new ones that are highlighted below:



THE RULES:
  • These rules are subject to change at any time.
  • You must be a member of these forums. No bots allowed.
  • You must submit your own work.
  • You can only submit 1 final screenshot per month.
  • The screenshot must be a still picture taken from MM2. No videos or animations allowed!
  • If there is a theme, your screenshot submission should follow it. Otherwise, it may be excluded from voting.
  • The screenshot may include only publicly released addons (cars, cities etc.). No private addons allowed! HOWEVER, you can use your own basic mods that edit the public addons (such as tuning mods, texture mods, camera angle mods...etc.).
  • The screenshot can be edited or unedited. No software limits.
  • The screenshot editions may include cut&pasted editions from photos not related to the game (i.e. new sky picture collected from Google Images...etc). However, majority of the final picture should be from the game.
  • The screenshot must be appropriate for the general community. No porn, no blood, no freaky, creepy or illegal stuff. Violation of this rule may lead to banishment from these forums...or worse.
  • The screenshot dimensions should not exceed 1600x1200 pixels.
  • The screenshot file size should not exceed 1MB.
  • The screenshot file type (format) must be either BMP, JPEG or PNG.
  • When you decide to enter your screenshot, post it here in this topic after the "Stage 1: Enter Your Screenshots!" announcement has been made for that month.
  • Use common image-hosting sites such as ImageShack, MediaFire or PhotoBucket.
  • You are allowed to change your screenshot submission only once and within three days of your original submission date.
  • No submissions allowed after the last day of the month the contest is designated for.
  • Voting will start on the 1st day of a new month and end on the 3rd day of the month.
  • Vote after "Stage 2: Vote Now!" announcement has been made.
  • To vote, just post using a sentence like " I vote for <name>". PLEASE DO NOT make ambiguous votes such as "kunal's SS is nice" or "+1 to Silent". These will not be counted as votes.
  • You cannot vote for yourself.
  • You can change your vote only once and only on the first day of voting. You cannot change your vote 24 hours after the Voting announcement has been made.
  • The winner will be announced shortly after the voting period ends with the "Stage 3: Winner announcement".
  • Winning screenshots will be entered into the SOTY contest at the end of the year.
  • A few other top screenshots that didn't win may also be entered into the SOTY contest.
  • New contests should start on the 4th day of a new month or when the new "Stage 1" announcement is made. Remember its taking place in the same topic (topic title will be changed).
  • You cannot re-submit an old screenshot or modified form of it.
  • Please keep spamming to a minimum. Commenting on other's screenshots once in a while is ok, but making one-word posts every time some submits a screenshot is unnecessary and annoying as hell.
  • Any participant may be disqualified if in violation of above-mentioned rules or for reasons not said above.
