    Mundusbellicus, a French website about strategy games, organize a competition equivalent to Unedited Screenshot of his own and following these rules :
    • competition is open to all games ;
    • monthly basis ;
    • strict rule : only unmodified pictures of available (eg. released) games and mods, only resizing is allowed ;
    • annual ranking system :
      • winners of each competition receive "points" (10pts for 1st, 8pts for 2d, 6 pts for 3rd, 4pts for 4th, 2ptt for 5th, 1pts for others) ;
      • competitor cumulate points on an annual basis ;
      • a 1st, 2d and 3rd winners are nominated after the last competition of the years based on their rank (numbers of points earned) ;



    I like the annual ranking system as I see it as an incentive to compete on a regularly basis.
    • Each (weekly/monthly) competition winners could earn points : 1st = 10 pts, 2d = 6 pts, 3rd = 3pts, others = 1 pts.
    • Competitors cumulate points on an annual basis.
    • After the last competition of the year, 1st, 2d and 3rd ranked competitor receive an award (badge + some Rep points) as UeSW winner of the year


    Maybe the weekly basis is too short and, at least for some times, a monthly basis would be more suitable.
    Then, if the system is successful, it could be possible to return to the weekly basis.
    I'm bringing back this topic because we're suffering of the same issue for the Monthly Graphics Competitions. I support the idea of having more visibility, especially if we can get a CMS article for our competitions.
    I've started to make blogs for the GC's. The 1st one stayed on the main pages for a while and attracted quite a lot of views. On contrary, the 2nd one about the GC #222 didn't stay on the front pages more than a couple of days and I can see that there a lot less people viewing the competition thread.
    I think that if it's possible to get a specific location on the main pages (like for CMS's) for our competitions, it would give a lot more visibility and may increase the amount of submissions and/or voters.

    True, and I wholeheartedly support the idea. Moreover, what drew me to these competitions was the front page announcement of the POTY one. As a result, we could really use more monthly specials or thematic competitions based on recent events, celebrations, etc. and of course, all should be visible on the font page announcement.

    Sorry for my bad English

    POTY is in good hands, but only thing remain is that I need get an answer by few members about their POTW winner works that they want present in POTY. So it will take some time.

    Me and Hader had talk about this forum section moving. It is still question mark for him that does it really help us to get more people here if we will be moved up. It is only about him now, when he do that but I will remind him soon what is his decision.

    Ladies and gentlemen!

    Picture of the year 2015 will begin at 1st February. I still haven't contacted with two potw winners (because of long inactive). I decided to give deadline for them till 31 January and Monday 1st February I will working on a thread and start vote, where will be about 16-18 already won POTW pictures from 2015. Every TWC member can vote 3 favorite pictures, no more (if anybody is going to vote more than 3, his votes will be disqualified) and you can't vote your own picture. Top 3 winners will be announcement at Monday 29 February.

    Rewards will be revealed on 1st February.

    Good luck for all people, who are received my message and are in POTY 2015!

    POTY is only content that takes only near a month. POTW/UESW are weekly, but if it lack of submissions then it will delay. Right now there are enough submissions that I will launch new round today when I get off from my study.

    - New content is now started here: GPOTW (Game Picture of the week). There you can add your unedited and edited screenshot from other games (Remember: No TW-screenshots to GPOTW-thread).
    - Rewards is same like in current POTW (1 point and +reps).

    Now is time to pick up your good screenshots from other games to their own content! Have a fun!

    Maybe you should make a sitewide announcement about the GPOTW and POTY?
