Hello fellow members, and welcome to the contest arena "The Arena" is a place where all registered f-o-g members can participate, in a series of contests. Forum Rules All posts within this forum must abide to the site's rules. Any off-topic posts will be deleted. Bad Sportsmanship is unacceptable. Users who act poorly within the Arena will be removed. Any threads not made by an administrator, or without an administrator's approval, will be deleted. A user may not participate, nor join in as a judge, if he or her has been banned from any of the f-o-g servers. Benefits of Participating Winners will receive forum reputation points, have their name in the hall of fame, an award icon on their forum profile, and in some cases VIP. You also help keeping the forum & community active. If you should win VIP, it is your job to take contact to the server owner, and ask for VIP on either CS:GO or TF2. A Judge's Role Judges may be chosen before the contest starts, or during the contest itself. A judge may not participate in the contest he's judging. Who can be a judge? Anyone! But, it requires you have at least 100 posts on this forum. If a judge is unable to give their votings before the deadline, it is their job to take contact to the contest creator. A Participant's Role Participant's must write in the contest thread before providing WIP's, if they are joining in. The submission has to be a work by the contestant. A Contestant must provide at least 3 WIP (Work in progress) screenshots before releasing the final work, before the deadline. Some cases are excused, such as screenshot & selfie contests One may not steal content from other places or contestants, without it being relevant to the contest. You may not ask friends to come vote for you. Contestants may not vote on their own submissions. You may not use stuff you've made in the past. The submission has to be a new work. Disclaimer [table="width: 900"] [tr] [td]Inviting your friends to vote for you, bribing random members with items and otherwise cheating with the poll vote system will get you DISQUALIFIED & BANNED from future contests. This includes, but is not limited to, sending PMs out to various users, getting other people to send those PMs, advertising this contest on other sites with the intention to gain more votes (whether it is explicitly stated or not), and so on. If you are suspected of cheating, the staff will notify you and discuss it with you over PMs. Do not create drama about it in the contest thread, or anywhere else on the forum. By participating a contest you agree to these rules & terms.[/td] [/tr] [/table] U p c o m m i n g C o n t e s t s (not in order) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
