Hey guys, In light of some recent forum drama with a couple oddly high value contests from very low post count new developers going totally south, I figured it was good time to draw up some rules for contests that are posted here to follow. I don't remember the last time we've had developers not honor their contests, but, here we are. Here's basically a bullet list of what kind of things I was thinking: -Developers are solely responsible for the integrity of their own contests. If you're going to run a contest that involves scoring or doing something in game, you are responsible for making sure your game can't be otherwise hacked or manipulated in a way to game your contest. -Abnormally high rewards need to be verified by a moderator or admin before the contest goes live. Open for suggestions on what this threshold should be. Maybe anything of a cash value over $20? I'm not sure anyone would be too incredibly bummed if someone never paid up on a $20 iTunes card, versus $1,000 cash or a new iPad or something. Maybe we even arrange some kind of escrow thing for that high of a value? -Developers must honor their contest obligations, or face being banned/blacklisted from TA. What other big things are we missing that are already in place? Basically, what happened that caused this is some new developers decided they'd offer up $1,000 cash for people to leave them iTunes reviews and then score highly in their game with the idea being the person with the highest score gets the cash. Unsurprisingly, when it was time to pay up, everyone who had satisfied the requirements of the contest on TA had apparently cheated according to the developers. Who is telling the truth? Hard to say, but we didn't have anything in place that prevented developers from offering ridiculous prizes or actually paying up on them. So let's fix that. I'm up for drafting a whole list of rules that prize and contest threads here should have. If you guys are active in this forum, let me know what kind of problems you'd like solved or anything else we can start doing to make this all run a little more smooth! Thanks, and sorry it took something terrible happening for us to do this, but, hopefully it won't happen again.
