Default Competition Changes

Due to a recent change in the way we handle our competitions (thanks to GW :), we have to make available a form for you guys to fill out for each competition entry you make.

This post explains it in more detail:
http://forums.tauonline.org/index.ph...tml#msg1378384

Please be aware that a more formal announcement will be made by Hive Lord whn h is next online as he has all the details regarding this issue.

However, the said forms are available for you use now, from here. The poor quality is because I have to print it off, sign it and then scan it in manually at hom. I will be working on a better quality one soon as soon as I get access to a better scanner (which should be Tuesday the 6th of April).

I can only hope you help us through this difficult and unnessarily complex transition

If the problem is with the prizes can't you just use forum karma and seals.

<edit> I'm sure it said about cash prizes a while ago when I read it, seemingly not anymore.

It's a relatively new policy change for GW regarding posting images of their models for 'competitive' purposes. The only ways around it are
A) Not include pictures of minis which defeats the point of most competitions
B) Make it so that no prizes of any sort are given

Why are they doing this? What rules does posting images of your own models breach?

All they are achieving is stopping people trying to have a friendly contest and possibly buying a mini specifically for a competition to paint.

Stab in the foot for GW.

Since when has GW ever done anything logical

Part of me (the cynical part) thinks it may be to try to get market research on their client base

I've read through GW's IP pages dozens of times (twice today infact) and there is no mention of of it being a breach to use imagrey based upon/of GW's IP for competetive purposes, just for comercial purposes.

Have you
a) checked the authenticity of the E-Mails from GW?
b) found out where GW states that competetive use for images is prohibited under their IP?

Surley they need to have a large terms and conditions page to make this form usable? (because of the sensetive data)
FT, surley Skylight should have to sign the form as he is the sites owner.

Surley a single digit being added to the database can't be called a prize?

Sorck is correct.

This is Kroot-shtlk with absolutely zero legal backing as far as my legal knowledge goes.

This is a poor, poor April fools' joke.

:P

Who's to say that it isn't coming?

It asked for an administrator, not owner.

If there's even a small value in it, I suppose it can be called a prize.
