So I wanted to make this quick-ish article about how the fan of the mois thing works. Who knows, maybe some of toi who didn't want to participate before may want to now! These things are usually done in plus active spots like spots for couples ou populaire tv shows, but this spot is NOT really that active and that's why I wanted to do this contest thing. I want to encourage plus activity! So here's just a general faq about FOTM! I hope toi participate! How is the FOTM determined?
A pick will be made (by me) with usernames of the people who have participated within this spot in the last month. Then users will vote for who they think has done the best job. The pick will close at a certain date, and whoever has the most votes then will be FOTM. Can I vote for myself?
Well yeah sure! I can't tell toi who to vote for. If toi think you've done a good job with the spot and have participated feel free to vote for yourself and/or add your name to the pick! How do I get others to vote for me?
par participating of course! toi can add yourself to the pick and vote for yourself, but the only way to guarantee toi will get votes is par participating in the spot! Sending messages ou leaving commentaires to people to vote for toi is just in bad taste. So please try to avoid that. What influences a vote?
Like I've said, activity in the spot. Here's a little liste of things that might influence a user to vote for you. Videos
- Adding trailers, movie clips, interviews, etc to the spot. Pictures
- Adding wallpapers, photos, icons, screencaps, and/or fan art with proper credit. Picks
- Adding picks, coming up with creative picks, etc. Links, Articles, Trivia, Forum
- Also generally anything in these sections. Comments
- commentaires are really crucial to the spot. Sure, lots of things can be added to the spot but if nobody commentaires on them how do we know if they like it ou not?! Do I win anything?
Um, bragging rights? A sense of superiority? FOR A WHOLE MONTH! I mean, how cool is that?! toi deserved it after all, for being FOTM in the horror movie spot of all spots. I think it would also be a pretty cool idea to conduct an interview with the winner, which will be posté here. The questions would be horror-related of course. But in short, no toi don't win anything material at least.
Please keep in mind that when toi vote, toi are voting for someone who has participated WITHIN THE mois OF THE CONTEST. For example, if toi see someone has added a lot of great photos to the spot in November 2008, they should not qualify for your vote in FOTM. This is fan of the MONTH, whoever has participated the most within the mois of the contest.
So, I hope that was not too confusing and I start seeing a lot plus activity in the spot! This is supposed to be fun, I don't want to encourage any harsh competitiveness! Just do your best to participate and enjoy!
PS: If I have missed anything that toi want answered, let me know and I will add it ASAP :)
