Some rules to make things clearer for everyone

:: 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).

:: 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).

:: 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.

:: 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.
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 :p

To vote for a Graphic post: Match X – G1 for Graphic A
– 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.

:: Can I be both a Designer and a Judge? ::
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? ::
Every 1st and second set task is drawn from THE TASK POOL.

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

You can send your ideas for task to me :p
Get thinking

Again Credit to Maya for writing up those rules :p

01-15-2011, 05:02 PM
Absolutly. But of course you won't be allowed to vote in your own match :p but you can judge other matches of course.
