Just a little clarification: are you after British-style tabloid (e.g. 'Teenage doctor-priest in sex-change mercy dash to palace corgi') or US-style tabloid (e.g. Bat Boy eats Elvis-Alien love child, and actual ones like these), or either of the two?

There's just a bit of a cultural difference between the two, is all.

Either type of tabloid is perfectly fine. (You can actually find both types in the US.)

I hate to double-post, but a couple of recent entries have brought something to my attention that requires a clarification of the rules:

If you choose to do cut-and-paste art, you may use in-game material, or images from in-game portraits, but please do not use artwork created by other players, unless that player gives specific written permission in this thread or by PMing me.

Wouldn't that constitute an unfair 'team-effort' submission?

Also (sorry, thought of this later) will you either be creating a list of qualified entries or responding to the e-mails that the entry was qualified and accepted? Thanks.

I can't actually stop team submissions, since I have no way to check it. There will only be one prize per entry, though.

What I am referring to, and what I will disqualify someone for, is taking artwork created by another player for another event and using it in entries for this contest. There have been many OM-related art contests and a couple of (disqualified) entries have poached artwork from these.

 
Also (sorry, thought of this later) will you either be creating a list of qualified entries or responding to the e-mails that the entry was qualified and accepted? Thanks.


Entrants will get two responses to their submissions. The first is an automated response to let you know your email hit my in-box. The second I will send by hand after sorting the entry. This second email will also include confirmation of validity, or an explaination for why the submission is disqualified.

As a said a couple of pages ago, you can choose to send either a link or an attachment. Just make sure your link is externally viewable without a password.

2 Questions,

1. Can the tabloid pictures be drawn by hand but the title page and everything else on the computer?

2. Should there be an article on the stroy you are writing about? or just a caption?

You can use any mix of art or design you would like to use, and long as it's all yours. If you want to draw part by hand and part on the computer, that is completely acceptable.

 
2. Should there be an article on the stroy you are writing about? or just a caption?


As I said before, you don't need to write a complete article. Just create a cover page for your tabloid - you needn't worry about what a reader would find flipping beyond the cover.

What exactly IS "stalking"? It may be something for which I use the softer words, "Hunting down".
As in, are you allowed to do some /who-ing or is that "stalking"?

I think what she is going for here is, Dont bother the OMs for help, this event involves them, but not neccesarily directly.

If you ask one, and they are cool with it, then awesome.

But dont pester, petition, or follow an OM around for a screenie. Like i PM'ed the two OMs I used with a Linky to the Tabliod. I didnt really ask for much from the two of them. Infact I didnt ask one of them for anything at all.

Be respectful. Thats all.

You can do anything as long as you don't actually contact the OMs. If you see an OM on the dock and want to take a screenie and use it, that's fine, but don't search for them to get a screenie.

Since you can make up your cover picture by drawing or cutting and pasting the OM images available in the wiki, you shouldn't need to contact any OMs ever for this contest. They are not participants, merely willing subjects.

No, I didn't just mean be respectful. When I said "do not attempt to contact any Ocean Master or developer regarding this event," I meant don't contact the Ringers in any way regarding this contest.

If any Ringer informs me that they were troubled by an entrant, I will disqualify that entrant.

There really is no reason to talk to the OMs. If you need an image, check the wiki. Your story's headline should be a complete invention and your image must be original artwork, so the OMs really can't help you anyway. Be creative, have fun making stuff up. Don't bug the OMs.

If it is a known Ringer alt residing in a Ringer flag (e.g. Minthe in Death's Banner), you can use the character as your subject.

Greetings Fava.
Cool event!
I created an entry and attempted to e-mail it as directed once yesterday morning and again this afternoon and have not gotten an auto-respond or a response from you directly. The e-mail was not sent back undeliverable so I have no idea if it made it through or not.
Could you please let me know if it got to you and if it didn't is there a different e-mail account I could send it to?
It was under the name Willhelmina-Sage.
Thank you!

I don't have any other email account to send to. I haven't had any complaints about emails not getting there yet, and I know the autoresponse is still working (and I sort entries at least once a day for the hand response as well).

Make sure you spelled the email properly. It happens more often with my personal email than with my event email, but typos could send your entry to someone else! The address, as I'm sure you're aware, is favaevents@gmail.com, so try to send it again. If it still doesn't go through, there could be a problem with the attechment that causes it to be filtered. Try hosting your image at imageshack or photobucket, and send me the link.

I hope that works!

Ooh. Just sent mine in and recieved a confirmation note. Can't wait to see the others...speaking of that, It's creepy not being able to see other entries. It makes me a little nervous 'cause I don't know what I'm up against. It's also kind of good, 'cause this way if two people have the same idea, it's just a coincidence.
