Recommended Posts

Welcome to Top Sims 2011! All announcements for the entire 2011 contest will be posted in this thread.

RULES

You can submit ANY sim -- from your ship, or another ship. All sims are welcome, including staff (Captain, First Officer, etc.) sims. Please find a balance between "too much" and "too little" on the submission end of this contest. Don't submit every post from your crew. But please encourage everyone to submit at least one post to the contest whenever they can. Want your crewmates to win more? Nominate only the best sims, and encourage higher quality sims!

HOW TO SUBMIT A SIM

Click the "Start New Topic" button. The format of the topic title should be as follows:

[ROUND XX] Character - Sim Title

For example:

[ROUND 05] LtJG Tristan Wolf - Everywhere you go, there you are

ABOUT THE VOTING

After each round, we'll vote on the best sim from the round, which deserves to go to the semi-finals. The best sims from the semi-finals goes to the final round.

Please vote on sims, and encourage your crew to do the same. But remember: this is NOT a popularity contest. We welcome submissions of your crewmate's sims, but ALL sims should be rated based on their MERIT, and NOT the fact that someone is your crewmate. Any crews found "stuffing the ballots" or ratings, will be disqualified PERMANENTLY - yes, that means the whole crew!

If there is a tie vote, those two sims will continue to the next round of voting for a run-off.

Because we have more than 10 sims from the end of last year and the beginning of this year, we're going to use the first 10 sims submitted until now as Round 1. Any sims submitted today through Sun 02-06 will be considered Round 2.

PLEASE MARK ANY SUBMISSIONS STARTING TODAY, THROUGH END OF THIS ROUND, AS [ROUND 2]. After Round 2, we should be on track with the Contest Calendar.

Instead of adding [ROUND 1] to your topic titles, you can now use the "Prefix Code" drown-down box when submitting new sims.
