Re: ATP [Graphics Makers Tour] US Open series 2010- Commitment thread

The rules are the same but there has been a slight change to the voting system

<ATP Graphics Makers Tour>

(all IMPORTANT words are in blue)

(all LINKS are in bold and underlined)

(all comments regarding THIS TOURNAMENT ALONE are in italic and orange)




:: What is GMT about? ::

The gameplay of ATP GMT consists of two things:
1. Creating tennis graphics
2. Judging those graphics

--------------------


:: Who can play? ::

Designer - anyone with a graphic editing program. (such as Photoshop)
Judge - anyone.

--------------------



:: How do you commit? ::

Simply write "DESIGNER - IN" or "JUDGE - IN" in the GMT Tournament Commitments Thread (in the Games subforum).
(each Tournament has three threads: 1. Commitments, 2. Qualifications and 3. Play)
(GMT AO '09 doesn't have a Qualifications thread)
--------------------



:: What's the first thing you do when entries are closed? ::

The first thing you can do (it's optional) is to think of a Task to send for The Task Pool.
The Task Pool is a collection of player contributed Tasks, one of which is randomly drawn for each GMT Main Draw match.

Both Designers and Judges can send in tasks.
Your deadline for sending in Tasks is the
start of ATP Main Draw play (usually Monday).

(for this tournament(AO '09), since we're a week late with opening the thread, you send in tasks WHILE commitments are still accepted)
(also, because of the small draw, send in 3 Tasks, not one)

--------------------



:: Are there Quallies? ::

Yes.

But not for this tournament, so I'll do this write-up for the next one.

--------------------



:: What's the format of the matches? ::

Just like in an ATP Tournament. One-on-one, best of three sets matches based on the Draw.
Winner goes through to the next round.

(In the AO, due to our small draw compared to the ATP draw, we're playing a Round Robin format until the semis)
--------------------



:: When does play start? ::

Instead of before, GMT starts AFTER the first ATP match of the first day ends.
Basically, it starts as soon as you can get
pics from the first match of the day.
--------------------



:: What's the deadline for sending in graphics? ::

24 hours after GMT play starts.
--------------------


:: How many graphics do you design for each match? ::

3 graphics. One for each set.
--------------------



:: How do I send in my graphics? ::

You should first have an account opened with an Internet website that hosts photos.
Tinypic
and Imageshack are recommended.
Photobucket has your username in the link, so avoid that.

After you make your graphics,
upload them to the hosting site you're using, and then send the links to them to the Manager by PM, before deadline.
--------------------


:: After I've sent my graphics, how are they judged? ::

They're judged one by one, set by set.

For the 1st set, both yours and your opponent's 1st graphic are
posted by the manager on the Play thread.
Then each one is judged for 8 hours.
Anybody can vote, except if you are participating in that match.

Vote on which graphic you like best, rather than for a friend – this is not a popularity contest.

To vote for Graphic A post: Match X – G1 for Graphic A
And Match X – G2 for Graphic B

You may vote only once per set.

When you vote, you MUST vote for all matches in progress or your vote will not be counted

You cannot edit your vote once cast; any edited posts will be discounted.

Everyone posts their scores on the Tournament Play thread.
To determine
The Set Score of the 1st set, all the votes for each graphic are added together[SIZE=3}and the one with the higher score wins the set.

2nd set - repeat.

[/SIZE] If players are tied, 3rd set is played.
--------------------



:: Can I be both a Designer and a Judge? ::

Yes.
Every Designer is automatically entered in the Judges List.
You can vote on every match but your own.
--------------------


:: Which format should I make my graphics in? ::
There are 4 formats you can choose from in [GMT]:

1. Avatar - 144 x 168 px
2. Signature - 800 x 260 px
3. Standard - 500 x 350 px
4. Poster - 500 x 500 px


This is only different in the
Finals, when both designers make a Wallpaper(800x600)
--------------------



:: Does GMT have a specific format for set tasks? ::

Yes.
Every 1st set task is drawn from THE TASK POOL.
Every 2nd set task
is a graphic of A MATCH in the ATP tournament, which the manager designates.

Every 3rd set task is a choice between A MATCH OR A PLAYER currently playing the ATP tournament.
(see details about Tasks)
--------------------


You can also see the
Colour-Coded Schedule of a Tournament here.


Anything else I missed let me know.



Special thanks to Maya for the rules we miss you tournament manager

Don't be shy people join in
It's just for fun

Nadine and Guille, in case no more designers committ do you want to play a three set duel or a five set duel?
(I presonally vote for a thrilling five setter )

Edit: you can send task ideas to me or Nadine. As stated in the rules tasks can be about anything tennis related i.e: Biggest mug in the cincinatti tounament.

Yeah, I'd go with a thrilling five setter too.

But give it a couple more days. Hopefully more people can commit.
I'll send you my ideas in a couple of hours.
