Fabpsi Posted October 9, 2014 Share Posted October 9, 2014 (edited) Heyhey ^^ okay, do not get me wrong: I love the idea, I really really do. I am able to speak english, know some awesome voices (and have the proper equipment to record it) and the idea of player voices for the Liset radio is just great. Furthermore we, as a community, have enough time to record and prepare...and we do not even have to edit/ process our own raw recording. (again, awesome <3) But there is one problem: I am not allowed to participate. Why? Because of the IGN rules. [...];legal residents of the fifity (50) United States and the District of Columbia and Canada (excluding Quebec) [...] And that is the reason why i hate it...okay... I do not really hate it. I am just sad that I am not allowed to participate (._. ) I would like to know why this contest is restricted to certain areas. - and before someone asks: I know absolutely nothing about the law situation, but I would like to know. (maybe because if everyone could participate it would be wayyyy to much work to edit every single raw recording? Or because ign have an internal rule or something? or laws? Spacepirates?) Here are some ideas for the next community contest thread: - Please highlight very important rules directly in the thread... (yes, i know, DE already mentioned "rules", but they did not mentioned this important rule.....) (like "note: Only legal residents of the USA and Canada can participate! see more information here" -link to ign rules-) - Maybe try to explain the reasons behind some rules, (If they need an explanation) - If the contest is restricted to certain areas, maybe you can create a "smaller" contest for the other areas? (nothing big and nothing that needs a lot of preparation, e.g. "take a screenshot of something"-contest or "create a line for the radio"-contest. The winners wont get a lot of stuff if you compare it to the big contest, but it is something. And I know ; this would mean even more work for DE to create and watch 2 contests at the same time...but at least everyone in this awesome community would have the chance to win a contest.) For those who can participate: Good luck and have fun <3 and...well..yea...that's it for me :3 I do not blame DE... I just dont like that they "joined forces with IGN" for this contest. (quote from the Radio Chatter Contest thread) What do you think about this contest? Edited October 9, 2014 by Fabpsi Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
