Dark Image of the Day Competition for 1/18/13


http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2013/002/b/9/dark_image_of_the_day_token_by_journey2darkness-d5q54w5.jpg


Welcome to the Dark Image of the Day contest. This contest is for those that don’t view the world through rose colored glasses and always have a dark cloud following them around.

We’re looking for the best of the alternative world. Think gothic and steampunk, strange and weird, mysterious and surreal, terrifying and horrible, and fetish and freakish. Anything that is out of the box of normal.

There are other contest for fashion, glamour and nudes so lets keep those entries in their respective places. Let’s make this contest the one that your mother warned you about .

So please read the entire theme and stay on topic with today’s theme

~~~~~



TODAY’S THEME:  “Ice”

Tomorrow’s Theme:  “Moods/Frightened/”
THE RULES:


1 - DO NOT POST IMAGES - ONLY LINKS TO KEEP THINGS FAIR
2 - Stay on topic with the posted theme though artistic interpretation is welcome .
3 - Mark links to mature images (blood, bondage, nudity) with "18+"
4 - You may enter only 1 image per day, even if you have multiple accounts.
5 - You may only enter an image that you were directly involved in creating.
6 - You may not resubmit a given image to the contests for at least 15 days.
7 - Only one vote per person each day even if you have multiple accounts.
8 - No voting for yourself.
9 - No spamming others to vote for a specific image.
10 - No Vote stacking .
11 - Winning images will be retired from this contest.

HOW TO ENTER

Using today's theme as a guide, look through your personal images (on MM or elsewhere) and find one that best fits the theme.  Artistic interpretation of the theme is welcome but DO NOT select a non-related image just to post something.  Then, copy either the image link or page link and post it in the thread.  DO NOT USE [IMG] TAG TO POST THE IMAGE.  If it contains anything the MM rules deem as mature (blood, bondage, nudity, etc), then please mark the link with "18+".  You may also add a brief editorial about the image, if you wish.

HOW TO VOTE

Voting starts at noon PST (MM Time) or 3pm EST and ends the next morning whenever the votes are tallied.  To vote, simply quote your favorite entry and type "VOTE" below it.  After the day's competition ends, the host will tally the votes and post the winner of the day.  In the case of a tie, the host will choose the image that best reflects the day's theme that is not their own.

I really like this daily dark contest. But I really think you should change the rules to have people post the image and not a link, as its makes it a real pain to see all the entries. I think you would get more voters if you did this.

At the beginning of the "Dark Image of the Day" contest, they allowed both, the image or the link if it was 18+. However, people were posting the 18+ images and the moderator's would hide the posting. On it's first day alone, 15 entries were hidden because of too much blood.

Shortly thereafter, the rule was placed to only show the links to your images to keep the moderator's happy and to keep all images equal as some people will sail through looking for an image to vote on and not even look at the images that were the linked 18+.
