Description

What is it?
Media Madness Month is an event where participants create media for other people's games over the given period. The aim is to either give feedback or show support for the games you enjoy or the ones that need it. Let's show each other some love!

Media in this event is defined as one of the following: Reviews, Let's Play/Try videos, Fan-made trailers, Fan Art, Fan Fiction and Musical scores. If you want to try something else, send either Nessiah or Liberty a PM and we'll let you know.



You may only submit media that is for games that you are not the lead developer of. You can give media to games that you've helped out with, but if you created a project then it's not allowed and won't count.
Follow the Guidelines on how to submit. Read them, learn them, breathe them, love them.
Submissions should be added during the course of the event. You can check it by looking at the top-right of the event page. The date shown there will be the end point. (It's set to whatever offset you have the site time set to, so if you're +8 hours and have set your site-clock to such, it will show the ending time in your zone.)
You may have multiple submissions - in fact we encourage it!
No teams.
Be respectful and put at least a little effort into your media submissions, please~



Each day bounties will be posted at the bottom of this post. These games are completely optional and judged by Liberty as to who collects the bounty. The better quality the submission for that bounty, the more likely it will be chosen as the 'winner'.

You will be told how many days you have to complete a bounty when that particular bounty is posted. If you haven't completed that bounty by the due time, you may still add it as a general submission to the event.

Wanted games will be ones chosen at semi-random which haven't had much love shown to them - both old and new, from any engine and genre. Essentially, they'll be another 'list' of games provided for this event, but rest assured that they're completely optional.

Each successful bounty will award you with one Bounty Point. These will be used at the end of the event to determine a special something...



MEDIA PAGES
To submit media to a project, go to that projects game page. Under the title image there should be some options including Review, Subscribe, Nominate, Submit Media and RSS.

Click on Submit Media and fill in the media page, choosing the correct category.
Add Media Madness Month to the title.

If you are submitting video content where there are more than one video (so LPs or LTs) you MUST have at least 5 videos to a page if there are more than 5 videos in the series or at least a balance.
For example, if you have a total of 8 videos, 4 over two pages is acceptable, as long as each video is at least 10 minutes long. All 8 on the same page is also acceptable.)

If you have done more than one piece of art, add them to the same media page. In the case of over 5 pieces, or if they're large, you should use hide tags.

Be aware that it takes time for media submissions to appear as they are subject to being checked. This means that if you're writing something on the page it should be of good quality - ie, readable with minimal spelling and grammar errors.

In the case of Fan Fiction, use a normal media page. If it's a very long piece or of questionable nature (that is, over M rating) use hide tags and - in the case of Mature themes - add a tag above the hidden work letting readers know that there is questionable content within.

REVIEWS
To submit a review, go to the game page and click on Review. Follow the directions on that page, making sure that the written parts of the review are of sound quality - that is, proper grammar and spelling; decent aesthetic properties (paragraphs, working picture tags, not hard to read colours or font sizes) and non-inflammatory.

Remember the Golden Rule of Reviews - point out the good as well as the bad and try to be unbiased or at least, keep your opinion as correct and non-abrasive as you can.

Once done, make a comment on this page using the following code:

[b][color=green]Review for[url=<address of review> [color=orange][u]<name of game>[/u][/color][/url].[/color][/b]


Due to the way the event pages are set up, reviews and Media cannot be submitted at the same time to the same event. Hopefully this will change in the future, but as it stands it is easier for reviews to be done like this. I will post a list of the reviews at the bottom of this post.

If you have any questions, submit them in the comments and either Nessy or Liberty will get back to you.

BOUNTY
To collect a bounty, follow the above submission guide except adding the word 'Bounty' in the title of the piece. Then submit as a normal submission.

After that, drop a comment with a link to your bounty submission before the date/time you are told and add the following line in Bold/Blue:
"Bounty Collection for <name and link of game in grey and underlined>."

Underline, grey and link the name of the game to the media page.
A handy code:

[b][color=blue]Bounty Collection for [url=<address of media/review> [color=grey][u]<nameof game>[/u][/color][/url].[/color][/b]


GAME AIMS
In the hide tag are a list of games for us, as a group, to aim towards completing. If every game gets crossed off there may be a special little something for all who contributed to the aim.

We will also be hosting a super special raffle with a secret prize up for grabs!


One ticket per media/review submission for any of the games from the below list.



COMPLETE REVIEW LIST



A BOUNTY HAS EMERGED!

WANTED! FOR THE CRIME OF BEING UNDER-LOVED!







The Arementon Marine Office asks that these three amigos be rounded up before Tuesday 11th, 11:59pm GMT.

Forced Recall still roams free! The Marines have upped their bounties! The first to catch them (with decent quality) will gain double the bounty! Contact the Arementon Marine Bounty Dept before the 9th to claim your bounty!

REMEMBER! Don't post the link to reviews unless they've been accepted to the site. Bounties are exempt from this as they need to be claimed before the due time.

Nah. I think I'll pass on this one.

Besides, I have a MUCH juicer game to review that could run circles around StarFront Factions! Muhahahahahahaha!!!
The Arementon Marine HQ has announced that the successful bounty collection list is in for the sixth round.

The Orchid's Dream was captured by Dyhalto!
Froglight has been dragged in by Addit!

Congratulations! You've earned one bounty point each! You may brag about these points as you wish!

The seventh round results will be released Tuesday 11th, 11:59 PM. Keep an eye out for them then!

Forced Recall, War Force and Sawed still roam free! The Marines have maintained the bounty. The first to catch them (with decent quality) will gain a double bounty!

A new bounty list has emerged!

(If I've missed anyone please let me know! I've been extra busy in real life atm, so my head's all over the place. I might have missed one or two. Thanks~ Also, about one week left to go!)

War Force is taking me a bit longer than I would have thought ... I'm going fishing to take a little break from it!

Done Fishing!:

Bounty Collection for Fisherman Game

Also, finally beat a boss that was holding me up in War Force. I'm still only halfway done, apparently ...
Reviews for Cosplay Crisis & Marie Goes To Space

These will probably be my last submissions for the contest, since there is only a day left to go before "May Media Madness Month" is over. 'Tis was a good run. :)
It ends today? :O
For some reason, I thought it went for one more Bounty batch. Shouldn't have sat on my tuffet for so long.

Oops, I lost track of time as well! Dyhalto, perhaps you can do Alien Bio Lab, which apparently is a match 3 game which shouldn't be that hard to do something for. In my case, I still would need to finish the game first and then, we'll see ...
author=Liberty
Alright, I'll add them to the OP, though neither Nessy or I can add them to the actual event (It's only Admins that can do that, unfortunately). Rest assured, there are badges, though~

Where are they? I can't see them still. Is my browser blocking them for some reason? >_>;

Anyway, just in case these don't get accepted in time.

I don't want to play a game and write a review for it in a single afternoon. My writing wouldn't be up to personal standard, and it'd be disrespectful to the game's creator.

Anyway, here's a non-bounty, non-aim submission. It's still pending though. Not sure what the rules are if it isn't accepted in time.
Review for Heiwaboke Crisis.

Dyhalto, fair enough. I guess as long as the entry is submitted before the end of the event, not necessarily accepted, it counts.

If I don't finish the game on time or the review itself, or the latter doesn't live up to my standard, I'll just submit it later, when I think it's ready.
I will sorely miss being able to legitimately put "love bounty" in the title of my reviews.

It's over! I guess there wasn't enough love to spread around to complete the Game Aims. Clareain_Christopher should get some sort of special reward as the Media Master for the event! And I'll definitely miss "Bounty Hunting", until, hopefully, next time. So that only leaves me with the question of what the Bounty Points will be useful for ... (deep sigh)
I'll get back to you all on that shortly~ (I'm still rather ill, but I'm healin' so it should be done in a few days)
Yes, there was a hidden somethin' for the bounty hunt... well, you'll all see.

Watch this space kids, and I want everyone to give themselves a big ol' pat on the back for contributing to sharing the love around. You all did a great job and should be proud.

Get better, Libby! And I forgot, hugs all around for those who contributed to as well as the organizers of the event!

EDIT: Oh, yeah, the badges are still MIA ...
We're waiting for an admin to add them in :o

An interesting event to offer (and to participate in). I bet other websites will get some inspiration from it to bolster their reviews' rate.

By the way, you can crossout Shadow and Sixth Entry (rmweb) from the list, as I reviewed them as Princess Lucia (rmweb) a few days ago.
