Posted under Site News, Birthday, Pain Yourself With Submissions, Contest, 2013

Its that time of year again! Time to PAIN YOURSELF WITH SUBMISSIONS! Yes, that's right, its contest time, where you can win awesome prizes, including an RFGeneration T-shirt and a game of your choice! Isn't that nice of us? We think so, but we do it for you guys, for all the hard work you put in through the year to make this site so awesome.
Our veteran members are probably very familiar with how the contest works, but for all the new members, the basic premise is very simple. Just be active on the site, get points, and if you accumulate enough points, you win! That's the gist of it, the details are a bit more complex.

Here's how the point breakdown will work:
  Title Addition: 5 Points
   Variation Addition: 6 Points
   Page Edit*: 2 Points
   Review*: 50 Points
   Overview*: 20 Points
   Image Upload: 10 Points
   Submission Review**: 1 Point
   Blog Post*: 30 Points
   Blog Comment: 1 Point
   Forum Post: 1 Point
   Forum Karma: See Explanation


*Regarding the asterisk: For page edits, if it is noticed that you are consistently only adding one field per edit multiple times for a single title just to up your points, you will be disqualified. Any review or overview completed will count as a page edit as well the points for an overview or review. To get the points for an overview or review you MUST contact me via Personal Message so that I can keep a tally. In addition, the review or overview must be on the actual game / hardware page. A review or overview of poor quality could result in less points than stated being granted. The same statement holds true for blog posts.

Regarding Forum Karma: Because we want the forum to be a lively place of fun and interesting posts, we're enabling Karma during this contest. Karma rewards members that make good posts and smites those who do not. Your Karma will play a wildcard role in posts. Positive Karma at the end of the contest will increase your point total by a factor, while negative karma will decrease it.

As with any contest, there is fine print. Any submission that you make must adhere to the RF Generation Policies and Guidelines. We wrote these policies and guidelines for a reason, and well, wed like everyone to adhere to them. Failure to adhere to the guidelines could result in a disqualification.

Any point reduction or disqualification can be contested. In the event that you wish to contest, you must explain why the reduction or disqualification is unfair. If you win the contest, well restore your greatness, but if you lose, you shall be pelted with figurative rocks and garbage.

Everyone, except for the directors of this site, is in this contest. Because staff members get that extra point for each submission review, and those staff members will have thousands of submissions to review in addition to their own submissions, their total score will be halved to make things a bit more fair and lively.

So now that you know all the rules and have the scanner warming up, you probably want to know what you can win. Well, don't worry, its quite a substantial prize. The winner will receive their choice of gaming swag (not to exceed $60) plus an official RF Generation Ringer T-shirt!

The contest will begin on April 28th at midnight Eastern Time and will end on June 8th at midnight Eastern Time. There will even be an announcement post at that time so even if you're outside the Eastern time zone, you'll know exactly when to start submitting.

So get that scanner fired up and start stockpiling scans and submissions!

It's on like Donkey Kong!
 
Might actually try my hand at this one this year.

'Course, if karma is a factor, then I'm probably SOL no matter how many submissions I have.
 
So who's going to take Aeroc down this year?

Oh, and time to karma bomb the 'Norch! Wink
 
@Duke.Togo:

Oh, and time to karma bomb the 'Norch!

My guess is Razor Knuckles, RetroRage, and Nupoile will team up to downvote me at every opportunity. It's their revenge for my goofing on their beloved sports teams last season. They're  just can't let it go...

I only hope Shoboni doesn't get caught in the crossfire again this year...

I would set up a script to down vote you continuously but I don't know how to write scripts.....unless.....does Fortran work on this site?
 
@nupoile: I'm pretty sure everything here was written in COBOL.
 
Oh, man.  I've got to screw in my motivation circuit tight this year.  Last year I started taking screens of PC games, but after about ten games I got bored and fell asleep.  Not this year.  I picked up about ten bags of Herr's Jalapeno Poppers from Willie's and two boxes of Twinnings Irish Breakfast tea.  Not sure what's going to happen with that stuff, but I'll see if it helps increase my motivation.
 
@Duke.Togo:
Aeroc's staff this year, so his contribution for points gets cut in half. We figured it'd be only sporting.
 
@bombatomba: I predict explosive diarrhea. Wink
 
@Duke.Togo: What other kind is there?
 
Oh its on. Atari 8 bit Section Prepare for a face lift.


PS. How can we keep track of our points as we go?
 
@Zagnorch: The kind that I had after eating two bags of those Jalapeno cheese puffs.  Not explosive, but subtle.  Still uncomfortable, though.
 
@A8scooter: We'll provide an update throughout. We have a staff page for it, but we'd prefer not to have it visible since it requires manual updates. If necessary, we'll make it public.

If you were curious, you had 712 points with 70 images, 1 add, 1 blog comment, and 6 forum posts as of this morning when I updated it, which incidentally puts you first. ^.^
 
@Shadow Kisuragi:

looks like i have some competition! i had a good stockpile of images to push me ahead at the start but work slows me down a lot...tomorrow i'll put more time into it, then it'll really be on Wink
 
@techwizard:
For what its worth, you were winning for the first couple days.
 
I had so many submissions right before the competition started =\
 
I just purchased a new scanner/printer so I'm ready to contribute.
 
Im a scannen and adden tuesday
 
(FALCON PUNCH on eveyone) I maybe new, but i'll totally will win this, the winning way!!!!!!!
 
Im happy that the 8 bit section is getting alot of new things posted up. Its great to see that new pics of games manuals boxes and new titles that arent listed before are now listed. I got a bunch of boxes and manuals to upload. 8 bit away.......
