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.

Very interesting. Will make sure to at least do one review. I think this is a great idea.

I accidentally signed up while looking through this event... Sorry, but I am too untalented to submit any pieces, as I can only do 16x16 pictures. XD (Again, sorry!)

Just do a review if it matters that much, lol. Those count.
Wait, what, Why is it July now. It was June last night!
@Ronove: That's just fine.

@Date: Uh... four weeks from the 16th is the 13th. Four weeks is near enough to a mad month~. ^.^ Oh... just realised you meant July. Well how did that happen?

@DameofSpace: You could always do something written or, as said, a review.

@Noel: Well, while I don't want to cramp people's freedom, we do want to dissuade people from writing ten words and counting it as done. They may very well be a pretty ten words, but it doesn't take much to make a piece a bit longer, and 300 total (as in, say, three pieces of 100 words) isn't too much to ask all-up.

It coincides nicely with the review limit, too. Nice, easy to remember numbers. Yup.

Thanks for reminding me about that space issue, though. I meant to change that last night!

@Ratty: You can unsubscribe from events. Go to your account area: there should be a way in there~

@Oblic: The key is that they've not been done for this event, so they still count. There will probably be games set for bounties which already have a review or some media, (though I'll be picking those which don't have many despite being really neat-looking games) so the list will be based on what is generated for this event.

If nothing else, look at this event as a way to generate more MS from your already MS-generating submissions~

And showing love to your favourite games~

Bounties will be up shortly, btw!
Hey, cool. This is a thing I can do. I will do it.

But not now because I have a headache. Just you wait, though~<3

I hope she does, we can have a beautiful tango of reviews, but we all know that I will spread the most love throughout RMN in the end. It is inevitable.
I'm in for the event. I will improve my game and submit media for other games. That is something I like.

Do we call dibs for the wanted games, or do we just pick one and make content?

Just pick whichever you want and do it. There's no reservations :D

Very nice. Thanks.
Question about bounties : If I upload media today (or a review, since its me <.<) but wait/hope for the bounty a week or two from now, can I link it then and claim? Or will I have to upload my review/media on the day of?
Just go for it. You can do all or one, it's up to you. I'll be picking the bounty 'winner' for each at the end of the bounty period, so quality more than quantity is the best way to go.

You have to have done it during the time allowed. As with real bounties, many people may be going for the same one as you, so it's about getting in by the due time, but with enough quality to 'claim' it.

Bounties should be added to the site, though, under either media or reviews. You'll have three days from the announcement of the bounties in which to play your chosen game and create your submission. You don't have to play all the way through each game - just enough to get an idea of it. And there will be all genres and engines covered.

As long as you link the media/review in the thread as per the guidelines, and intend to add it to the site (eventually) then it will count.
I have decided on my love bounty. I'm readying my showers, wish me luck! And it will be quality love not that synthetic kind that can be found in Taco Bell meat, of that you can be sure. (I need to sleep I think - I'm having way too much fun with the love bounty idea.)
XD

Love bounties are best bounties~
