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!

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.

Uh... the first has male/male romance

Hawt.
Cool, might just release a fan art :3

If I make a fan art for a game on the RSW/Cook of list, would it be ticked off or does reviews only count?
The list at the top of the page - reviews, Let's Play/Try videos, Fan-made trailers, Fan Art, Fan Fiction and Musical scores - all count.

Any game, though may I point out that the Cook-off games are on the Aim list. That said, as long as it isn't your own game, it works.
All right, my love bounty is pending it just needs to be accepted!
Bounty Collection for Kryberia.
(it's a review that is still pending however I was able to get to the link so I thought I'd go ahead and put my comment here)

Edit: Figured it out! Link works now.

Edit 2: Just pointing out the review has been ACCEPTED to the SITE. (read the comments bellow about waiting for it to be aaaaand yeah... so there you go :P)

I changed my mind and decided to do a Let's Try vid of this game.
Got myself "three" reviews to submit. :D Two not from the list and one on the list.

Review for Penpals
Review for Generica
Review for Reincarnation (F**kin EH!!!)

And since my video capturing card seems to work rather fine, I may, if I have the time -- MAY, do some "Let's Play's" during the course of the week, so you can hear my "smexy voice". ^^

If not, I guess I'll just do some steamy fan-fiction for some random projects, just like what Libs did.
Oh yeah! I should probs claim my bounty, forgot about that!
It's not accepted, but I'm sure that's no big deal.

Bounty Collection for Kryberia.
Bounty Collection for Walking The Plank.

Review for The Legend of Jak.

Both are reviews. Ones a bounty and ones from the list.
Crap I accidentally hit the Sign up button and I do media well.
Maybe it's the forces beyond telling me to do this. XD
Okay, just for the record, if you're posting reviews for the Aims list, please wait until they're accepted to the site. This way we won't have to wait on resubmissions (if necessary) since you guys have the whole month for them.

Bounty reviews - I'll wait to judge until they're added to the site, though more Bounties will appear while waiting. As long as you post a link before the end of that bounty phase, it will count.

Next round of bounties are up! I'll post the successful captures of the last round once the last one is accepted to the site.

I know she's talking about me. Sorry! First time reviewer like ever. I will fix them as soon as possible and when I feel like it. I am doing my AS exams and so timings a bit rough, but hopefully soon right after 24, there will be more then a week of no exams.

EDIT: If the waits a bit too long you guys can move on. I honestly wont mind.
Oh, it's not just you. Most of the reviews were added before they were accepted to the site. Just in case someone's gets rejected for whatever reason, I'd rather they wait until it's been accepted.

Don't worry about waiting for the bounty one, though. It's basically proving that you got it in before the deadline and if there's rejection or it will take a while, I'm happy enough to just wait for the bounty capture announcements. I was actually considering leaving them a surprise, but I figured that might have been a bit mean.

So that the wait isn't too bad, I'll announce the first round capture at the end of the second round end and second captures at the end of the third round. That way we have an established routine and the ones that have to wait will have time to get accepted. 3 days isn't too long a wait, I don't think.

Any questions about that?

Nah! Sounds good.
Yes it sounds, but still... Is music classified as a media in this contest? i think i release something like that...
Music is - since you can be inspired by a game to create music I guess. OSTs work~
