    Default [2017 Modding Awards] Rules Thread

    THE RULES






    There will be a public nomination thread for each game that will include all the categories for that game, here players can nominate mods or modders that they would like to see move through to the voting stage and be in with a chance of winning. A list of the most prominent mods (but not modders) will be provided per each single category; this list isn't definitive and might not be thorough: every player is free to nominate other mods that might not appear on the lists compiled by the Commitee, as long as they meet the eligibility criteria for that category and a valid link is provided (those without will be discounted without further notice). Also, if a mod does not have a clear release date listed anywhere, it will not be considered eligible.

    Modders reserve the right to ask for their mod or themselves not to be considered for nominations for any award category. If this is the case please PM me so I can remove any nominations of your mod and make a note to inform people that your mod/yourself cannot be nominated.

    On top of that, there is no need to nominate a mod more than once, if you notice someone else has nominated a mod you wished to nominate as well. Once a mod is nominated just once, it will be included in the awards no matter how many nominations it gets from different users. - Maximum 5 nominations per category; only full members (minimum 25 posts and 1 week membership) can nominate.


    Few more secondary rules:

    - Mods cannot be nominated twice in the same category; if a mod has more than one update (or is released and then updated) in 2017, then only the version that receives more nominations will be included in the polls.
    - You are not allowed to post in the poll threads who you have voted for. If you do, your votes will be disqualified

    The nomination period will last a minimum of three weeks. It can be extended at the discretion of the Modding Awards Committee.

    THE AWARDS

    Mods that come in the first 3 positions for each category will have the right to show medal graphic for their mod as well as having their mod entered into the Hall of Fame.

    The first 3 positions of the Most Popular Modder award will receive a medal, as well having their name entered into the Hall of Fame. Rep awards may be an option.

    The 2 Mod Spotlight sections on the TWC Wiki Main page will be given to the winners of the hosted mod categories for Warhammer and another game (to be chosen at random).

    The medals available to win, kindly provided by Lifthrasir:





    FAQ
    Q) Can modders nominate their own work?
    A) Of course! As people should be voting for their favorite mod we would hope modders would at least nominate their own work, it shows they have enjoyed working on it.


    Q) Can modders advertise the awards?
    A) Yes, anyone is allowed to advertise the awards, in terms of getting the word out that they are going on. However, while any case of anyone explicitly asking for votes for themselves will not automatically result in disqualification, it is at the discretion of Hex and the Modding Awards Committee in the end. Anyone may advertise the awards as a whole as well as express that they or their mod are indeed a part of the awards, but explicitly asking for votes is generally forbidden and might lead to disqualification if this will be the decision of the Commitee.


    Q) What is the specific time period for 2017?
    A) Any where from 00:00 GMT on the 01 Jan 2017 up and including 23:59 on the 31 Dec 2017.


    Q) What counts as a 'mod'?
    A) For the purpose of these awards any public file that was released or updated in 2017 that can be downloaded from TWC or has a thread/forums on TWC that links to a download location that makes any change to any version(s) of the game or its expansions or downloadable content.


    Q) Who counts as a 'modder'?
    A) For the purpose of these awards anyone who is a registered member of TWC and in 2017 has publicly released or updated, or has worked on a public release or update (for example as part of a modding team) for, a mod. While not required, it may be helpful to others considering nominations/voting to link to a modder's more prominent and popular mods for reference.
