Caption Contest Rules Clarification
  • Posted by Chesu
  • Posted on July 22, 2017, 9:01 am NST

In the latest edition of The Neopian Times editorial, clarification was given on the new rules for the Caption Contest.



Caption Contest round 1400 is accepting entries until noon on July 23, and voting will remain open throughout the month of July. Future contests will follow this "one week to enter, one month to vote" format. The Caption Contest - Funny avatar will be available for both rounds 1400 and 1401.

New rules have been implemented regarding advertising your entry. On the Neoboards, you may only link to your entry in your signature. Creating a post just to advertise your entry will be considered a freezable offense.

TNT staff member Scrappy also appeared on Charter, the Neopets Premium-exclusive board, to answer a few more questions regarding new policies. Advertising your entry on third-party sites such as Facebook or Jellyneo is also frowned upon, and action may be taken if a member of staff sees it happening. While multiple captions from the same user have made it into the contest this time around, there will be a strict limit of one entry per person going forward. As in the past, the twenty-five entries with the most votes will be awarded the avatar.

Finally, TNT is hoping to hold contests in the future that will allow user-created art to appear in the Caption Contest, similar to what they did with the final Random Contest.

To clarify - only one entry will be chosen for voting per user, but she implied you can still enter as many times as you want.

A few more entries have been added to the voting list, and a couple of them are very similar to others already chosen. I'm wondering if they've already rejected the ones that I sent in before the news on the first day, or if they still have a chance.

From what I saw of Scrappy's comments, they still have a chance. However, with so little time left in the month, it would be an uphill climb to get enough votes to reach the top 25, which Scrappy said are the captions that will earn the avatar.

If they don't happen to get in, the next round will also be an avatar round, to make up for the abrupt way this round started. Encourage them to enter next round for sure!

She also mentioned awarding previous winners of the Site Spotlight the avatar. In case anyone missed that. xD

She just said it would take a couple weeks to go back and award the avatar to people.

I have been away a while but it seems like TNT are really engaging with the site which I think is amazing. Good luck to everyone in this round.

what about BC winners post-avatar and pre-fixing it like almost a year after the avatar was released?

jawsch, 07/23/2017, 8:10 am NST
Eh, BC is pretty easy to win again, especially now. Site Spotlight; previous winners were banned from entering again. So we couldn't try even if we had wanted to and now the contest is gone.

I was the first person to get said avatar and it was awarded at first.

I haven't, however, received the trophy for winning site spotlight. I've been pestering them for a long time now.

topaz644, 07/23/2017, 5:25 pm NST
All the captions from the contest disappeared? uh oh.

purplebin, 07/23/2017, 8:22 pm NST
Maybe after the submission cutoff at noon they decided to give all the captions a fresh start with voting.
Or... another glitch?

jawsch, 07/25/2017, 4:55 pm NST
@nightshadeswiftswing; Neomail Scrappy. Someone recently neomailed them re: a trophy they hadn't gotten either and was given it within like 24 hours

cheyennet2, 07/25/2017, 5:21 pm NST
I sent scrappy a message either Sunday or Monday. I can't remember which. I've already had multiple correspondences with her, but nothing has been sent back yet.

fullonparanoid, 07/25/2017, 6:05 pm NST
Hey y'all...I NM'd Scrappy askin' if the captions for July's image would be going back up and got this in reply (yesterday around 3pm Neotime): Yes they are going back up! Little mix up, but they will be back up soon!

fullonparanoid, 07/25/2017, 6:07 pm NST
^^^ So, they are aware of the issue...are presumably working on fixing it...and have the intention to put July's captions back up. What is still unknown, though, is WHEN...and whether the votes to date will be returned as well or if all captions will be set to Zero. Guess we just have to hurry up and wait.

purplebin, 07/26/2017, 8:11 am NST
I see the captions are back up again. They did not remove second entries by the same person as some had thought, and the votes are not reset.

atryeu, 07/26/2017, 10:47 am NST
I see mine is still not listed

maryishhx3, 07/26/2017, 6:03 pm NST
Mine got erased
