PostSubject: July Screenshot Contest?   Mon Jul 14, 2014 7:33 am

I was just going to post this in the MOAR Contests topic, but I figured this would be seen more easily. Please spread the word about this topic. The first contest didn't get nearly enough attention, and suffered from it.

Just to clarify, this is in regard to making a new screenshot contest for the fallout games (Fallout 3, New Vegas, TTW)

If this goes well, we may do contests for other games (Of the community's choice)
Well, DVAted has given me permission to assemble a team to decide on rules/regulations for a new screenshot contest.

So far, itsyoshiduh, Xxshadow1918xX, and pizzamonster94 have agreed to help me make/vote on rules, possible categories, etc.

Due to communication issues between us (Different timezones and continents in some cases) I've just decided to post a new topic in order to get their opinions on rules, along with the community's.

Basically, In the next screenshot contest, all of the original forum image posting rules apply.

In case you don't know, here's the basics:
@Cpt.Rex wrote:
1. no simulation of sex/intercourse/coitus (kissing is allowed)
2. no pubic parts/genitals
3. no naked bewbs (side-boob at the very most)
4. no slaughtering of children
5. nothing with crap or urine

Those are from an admin, therefore, not up for discussion.
However, we can decide on other rules  (Not duels  Sparring ).

EDIT: Just so we're clear, only UNEDITED images will be eligible to win: I.E. Not photoshoped. But, custom poses generaded in 3dsmax is perfectly fine. Just nothing that directly edits the image that isn't ingame changes.

Issue 1:
 

Issue 2:
 

Issue 3:
 

Issue 4:
 

Issue 5:
 

That's pretty much everything I could think of ATM. Everything besides the general posting rules is completely negotiable.  I see what you did t

If you guys have any more suggestions or anything you think should be changed to the rules/suggestions I've put above, speak now, or forever hold your peace!

Let's get this going soon, and hopefully, we can have a new contest before the end of this month.

What about, also, the description?

The time for when we start the contest would be set once everybody agrees with a set of rules.

As for a description, I really don't know what you mean.

Well, you really don't have to, but if the person posting feels like they have to describe what's going on in the picture, they could do so with just the title, or they could write more if they wanted to.

I'd like to get this contest started before the end of July, but I can't if this topic doesn't get enough attention sadly.

I agree with the time rules, but 5 pictures seems like a lot. I prefer three. That way people can't dominate all the categories etc.

I think that makes sense. It would also make voting easier. OK. I'm going to go ahead and make it 3 post max, unless people have a problem with it.

YOSHI'S PRELIMINARY RULE PROPOSAL

The following contest will me formed in this way: There will be two sections: ENB/NON-ENB. Each section will have a list of categories (ex: scenery, character, etc.).

1. Appropriateness: Please deter from posting any images that may include sexual content or waste matter.

2. Timeliness and Legitimacy: Please refrain from posting screenshots that were taken by someone else. Breaking this rule will result in immediate disqualification. To supplement and enforce this rule, the committee also asks that screenshots will be no older than seven days at the start of the contest.

3. Entry limit: Contestants may only include one photo per category and must limit themselves to three categories. However contestants can participate in both sections (ENB/NON-ENB). Thus, a contestant may submit a maximum of six images for the competition.

4. Fairness: To keep the contest fair, please do not ask others to vote for your picture or your submissions. If voting, please be impartial to the authors.

These rules are just a suggestion. Thank you for your time and consideration.

That's very well-written yoshi. +1 to you!

I honestly don't see any problem with this. You've pretty much covered everything regarding submissions. We may have to split the voting for ENB/Non-ENB between two recipiants though, just to deal with the possible confusion.  Tackling run

i agree aswell Very Happy
Also, to keep the topic from reaching the limit, only Posts with screenshots from the submitters should be accepted ( so no random posts just for the sake of spamming)
Better clear this, because there's a similar issue with DVAted's Screenshots Topics

hah I doubt it will be the case here
the limit is about 1000 replies/topic
~65 pages

the previous contest didn't get further than 5

but comments should be restricted to prevent influencing votes

I agree. We should try to keep the chatter down while submissions are coming in. Only screenshots will be allowed in that topic.

Very well written guys. Now... how do you guys want the prizes work? Will there be prizes? Do you want a similar list of prizes such as from the last photo contest?

Also I am assuming no photoshopped photos as well? I know a lot of people from the nexus photoshop their images.

I'm absolutely against photoshop. ENB's already enhance the image of the game. Furthermore you can additional edits on GECK to get poses, etc. Adding image editing transform a screenshot contest into a image editing contest.

Prize Petititon:

A Forum User Group exclusively made for the first place contestants per category. The forums user will be able to proudly wear a custom "July 2014 VGUScreenshot Placer" signature. We'll need volunteers to craft one.

So you are saying you can edit or make custom poses by using blender/3ds max etc?

Hmm. The signature could certainly work. However, how would the new rank work? Like would it be a rank with a different color?

All is great, i'm also for only 3 pics, but i have one question as well.
You mentioned about the categories, how you want to do? To nominate 3 winners for example: best character screen, best enviroment screen and etc? Or you want to make screens to be voted together? The last choise is bad... Because i am pretty sure, that people will vote mostly for characters, so then there is no need to post more than 1 screen then.
I think that would be better to give people choise by themselves which kind of picture they would like to use... This will be more interesting, because for example Wolverine, who is hunting at night is better than just... Well... Night.
You can make criteries such as one pic have to be outdoor, second - indoor and last one out in space closed eyes smile (joke, just etc, nothing more comes to my mind for now)
I think that's all i want to mention for now o.o

@maybenexttime, Hmm yea I guess we could make a rank with a different color. I'm not sure what the perks would be, except more attention (which is the point). The signatures alone could be an incentive for our gfx artists or even the community. We could turn the signature prize portion into a mini competition (no crazy rules, or voting etc.).

To answer the plethora of questions above... I would recommend the following:

1. Environment/Scenery. Characters or NPCs are a secondary focus. Nature, buildings, inanimate objects are the focus. ex: most ENBs use this type of photography.

2. Characters... Show off armors, effects, poses, emotions, epic scenes involving your personal character and/or npcs(s).

3. Narrative: Provide a picture with a compelling story. This is a bit abstract, but I know what I'm asking for. ex: Dragbody's "refugee" picture.

These are are all suggestions and are certainly open to amendments and discussion!
