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.

Sometimes you need to show some tough love ...
^ Agreed.

(BTW, I tried to play "Jack" the other day and I couldn't get it to run for my the life of me. :( But I did find some other "rad-ass" games to play instead. ^^)

Is there an error that appear? What happens when it doesn't run?
I was playing Jack yesterday (I think, maybe it was two days ago) and it ran fine. It was really fun too (even though I seriously sucked at it XD) I'll help you look into this.
Bounty Collection for Descension.

Bounty Collection for Sagawind.

Be careful, Bounty Hunter, or bounties will try to rip ya. ;P
(That was so terrible joke...)
Waiting until my 4-day weekend to do the things that need to be done. I'm not losing in my love race with Caz though. (I think.)

No error, the game just wouldn't run. I tried to play it about 4 times before ultimately giving up. :(

Review for Spike Lee's: The Twilight Zone

One of my personal favorite games of all time getting some much needed love.

Also -- holy crap, Clareain_Christopher, SOMEBODY'S BEEN BUSY!!!

If you were a horse and I was a betting man, I would beating on your ass right about now.
@Addit I don't think that came out right. I'm glad it came out that way, though. It fits perfectly into the obvious love aspect of this event.
Caz
LET'SBIAN DO THIS.

I think you're winning the love race, Gourd. I simply can't spread any more love. ;~;

GO ON WITHOUT MEEEEE.
I think we're tied. Just one...more...review, pardner!
The Arementon Marine HQ has announce that the successful bounty collection list is in for the first round.
Kryberia was captured by Gourd_Clae!
Walking the Plank was roped by Caz!
The Arms of Reverie was snagged by Seeric!

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

The second round results will be released Saturday 25th, 11:59 PM. Keep an eye out for them then!

A new bounty list has emerged!
Oh. Well. I guess I'm not doing the last one, thought that does bring back memories of me having no idea what to write. Also, I can't celebrate yet, I must flounce Caz in her hiatus state. (She'll probs still beat me.)
Sweet! New bounties!!!

(Oh, gwd, WRAITH!!! Clreian_Christophers -- I NEED YOUR BOUNTY HUNTING SKILLS TO BRING THIS BEAST IN!!!)

Why is wild thunder still in the 'aim' category? Its done and available.
