Currently Editing. As of 8/6/06, it is edited.


Ok, so with Matt (Something_Vague) officially leaving UG, I shall be taking over and attempting to revitalize the competition scene once again. Most of the rules are the same (but some I changed), as Matt's system did work well.

Season II

Season II symbolizes a fresh start to the Songwriting & Lyric's Competition scene. The Grand Competition that Matt established is supposed to trigger an end to the original point thread, declaring an overall winner for that points "season." Thus Season II will take place refreshed with new comps, all points for all competitors restarted.

========================================================

How This Thread Works:

In this thread, you will only post the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners of competitions and the 1 vs. 1 outcomes with the amount of points wagered.

========================================================

1 Vs. 1 Rules

  • You can only have four 1vs1's a month. No more! If you go overboard, you will be deducted 4 points.
  • You do not have to wager points, but these 1 vs. 1, will not be documented. To be more clear, simply do not post the results of them into this thread.
  • The maximum amount of points allowed to be wagered, per 1 vs. 1 match, are four. You are allowed to have up to -5 points to be able to compete in a 1 vs. 1. If you have more than -5 points then you are ineligible to compete in a 1 vs. 1.
  • You don't have to have points to be in a wagered 1 vs. 1. For instance, Something_Vague can challenge xArCaDiAx to a 1 vs. 1 for 4 points. If xArCaDiAx loses, he loses four points and Something_Vague gains four points, and if xArCaDiAx wins, he gains four points and Something_Vague loses four points. Easy, right?


For your match to count, make sure your post in this thread looks like the following example:
xArCaDiAx +4
Something_Vague -4


========================================================

Types Of Competitions

Newbie Competition
A Newbie Competition is one established just for the new members of the Songwriting and Lyric's community. Usually, eligible competitors are those that have registered after a certain time period. And any type of piece (lyrics, poetry, prose) is eligible for being entered. There is no specific theme that competitors have to follow.

Point Distribution For Newbie Competitions:
1st Place- 3pts
2nd Place- 2pts
3rd Place- 1pt


Quicky Competition
A Quicky Competition is one established to be set up and run quickly. Any member of S&L is eligible to participate, as well as being able to submit any type of piece (as long as it is not ridiculously long). There is no specific theme that competitors have to follow. Pieces are usually due on the date the competition was established, or the day after, so that the poll can go up quick (hence the name).

Point Distribution For Quicky Competitions:
1st Place- 3pts
2nd Place- 2pts
3rd Place- 1pt


Regular Competitions
A Regular Competition makes up the majority of Songwriting & Lyric competitions. Any member of S&L is eligible to participate, but these competitions usually follow a specific theme. An example could be a political competition, where each competitor will have to write a piece about something political, whether it be about war, government, economy, etc.

Point Distribution For Regular Competitions:
1st Place- 4pts
2nd Place- 3pts
3rd Place- 2pts


Super Competitions
A Super Competition are usually competitions that are held around holiday's or designed to be on a special theme. Any member of S&L is eligible to participate, but these competitions usually follow a specific theme. An example could be the Halloween competition, where the theme would be to write a piece that pertains to Halloween in some way, whether it be ghosts, demons, vampires, trick-or-treating, witches, etc.

Point Distribution For Super Competitions:

1st Place- 5pts
2nd Place- 4pts
3rd Place- 3pts


========================================================

Competition Rules

  • You can be eligible for any competition (as long as you meet requirements, such as for the newbie competition)
  • You have to submit your piece for the competition by the due date.
  • NEW RULE- If you do not submit your piece for the competition you signed up for by the due date, you will receive a deduction of 1pt. If you need an extra day due to reasons such as vacations or just being inable to get it in on time, you must notify the competition starter before the due date.
  • NEW RULE Pt.2- Competition starters MUST notify ME by a PM for any competitors that did not send in a piece without an explanation so that those people can receive their deduction.


========================================================


The Grand Championship

The Grand Championship will be triggered when someone hits the (UNDECIDED) point mark. This will halt the start of any new competitions and 1 vs. 1's. All competitions and 1 vs. 1's running during that time will be allowed to finish. No new competitions or 1 vs. 1's will be allow to begin again until the start of the next season. The top 10 will then go into a one of a kind competition, using any piece they've ever wrote, with no specific competition rules. The winner of this competition will be declared The Grand Champion Writer Of (Specific Season). Now you may be thinking, why the hell do I want that ridiculous title? Well here's why, (PRIMARY REASON IS STILL BEING DECIDED) and the winner also gets instant access into the next grand championship.

========================================================

i didnt say two years, i said 24 comps i also said that each comp would take 2 weeks. Thats one year. At least thats what i kinda what to do. We do have a lot of comps we can do and were either just gonna list them and have the forum rec. pick one every two weeks or make a new idea or were gonna lay it out and every now and then have an open slot for whatever comps up in the forum rec. thread.

Haha, I don't even care. Plus, he said that the points are all down to 0 again.

P.S. I don't think I'm doing that many competitions anymore. Not that I ever did a lot.

Mike, I lost the list when I accidentally deleted my saved documents folder....so...yea. Sorry.

And James, yea it will be refreshed. But, as the rules now say. Everything is halted because of the Grand Comp (well, you can do 1v1, but for points now doesnt really matter)

I should post that in the 1v1 thread...in fact I will.

This isn't completely editted yet, is it? I had points in the other thread that aren't counted in this yet, so I'm assuming that a lot of other people's points aren't counted either.

Yea, Im still editing it

But, to be honest, as of now it doesnt matter that much because once the Grand Competition ends all the points will reset.

I had 9 points before I won the 3 points. But yeah, if it's just going to get reset then whatever. Haha, I got mixed up and thought that the Grand Championship was happening later, which was stupid cause it has the same name, duh. Summer shuts the brain off.
