Official Screenshots Contest Rules

Send your entries when there is a topic stating to send in entries for that month. If you wish, you may sign up for an Email alert when the topic is made. Click here and select "Immediate Email Notification". Please use the forum's PM system to send them to Tim. Read the rules before entering:



1. NO EDITING! This includes messing with the colors, levels, brightness, text or sharpening. The only 'editing' you can do is to resize the picture.

2. Maximum picture size of 800x600 Pixels, if it is above this size, the picture will be resized for you to 800 pixels wide. (1920x1200 = 800x500 Resized)

3. Please use the "Upload Image" link in the Personal Message or New Post Windows. If you use a different image service such as ImageShack or Photobucket and the picture does not load or is removed, you will not be allowed to change your picture once the contest has started.

4. Do not share your picture in public, or post them on the forums. This applies to other websites as well. Also, if you do use a different image hosting service (See #3) and the entry is viewable on something like a public album, this could disqualify your entry. Once the contest is over, please feel free to share your image.

5. No voting for yourself, that is just wrong.

Hey guys..first off, thanks a lot for hosting a new contest! But I have a suggestion..I think it would be nice if the maximum picture size would be increased to i.e. 1024x768..I would guess at least 90% of the users here are using monitors of 19" and bigger, and with anything above 19" a picture of 800x600 is really quite small..maybe an idea for the next contest? Thanks!

20" widescreen here..I would say 1024x768 is the minimum we should go to..preferably 1280x1024..

I will enter this contest, but not until the final decision about the pic size has been made :)

Alright, everyone seems to be supporting thr image increase. You must now upload at 1024x768. This is big enough for all monitor sizes :)

Thanks!

Excellent Baldwyn, many thanks, does this mean rule number two will look like this from now?

2. Maxium picture size of 102x768 Pixels. This does not mean the picture HAS to be that size.

That is fine with me. :) Also, I think it is in order to take out the maximum file size.
