Changes to Comp Rules
As you may remember, we had a very very close race in MOTM this past month. According to the comp rules, we had a tie-breaking vote. That second vote almost resulted in another tie. The Mod team and myself have decided to up-date the comp rules to better hand these types of situations in the future.
Below is a summary of the changes made:
Ties in the Photo Comps:
Ties for first place will go heads up in a 3-day tie breaking poll. These polls take place from the 25th-28th, after which the winner is announced.
Members tied for second place in photo contests will all receive the reward of 10,000 points and second prize medal.
Those that come in second place after the tie will automatically win Runner-Up. If ties still remain after the tie-breaker vote, all winners are awarded for the place they are tied for, be it first or second.
Ties in MOTM voting:
In the case of a tie for MOTM, the award will go to both members. In the event of a tie between three or more members, a tie breaking vote shall be used.
