IMPORTANT UPDATES to Best Game/Guest Room Submissions!!! *These changes will take effect May 1st, 2018. SUBMIT FOR APRIL BEST GUEST/GAME ROOM BY CLICKING HERE! SUBMIT FOR MAY BEST GUEST MULTI-ROOM BY CLICKING HERE! Multi-Room submissions now have their own category! For more information on the rules, please refer to this thread <3 Multi room submissions are ONLY eligible for the new category, they are NOT allowed for Best Guest/Game Room. You cannot win the same category more than once within a 6 month period. For example: If I won Best Guest Room in January, I cannot win again for Best Guest Room until July. However, I can win Best Game Or Multi Room during this time period. I have a master list of winners for each month, the room they won with, and which category they won with, so this will allow us to keep track. We believe that this will allow more players to have a chance at winning the categories, and will prevent anyone from feeling discouraged. That being said, clone checks will be put in place. Ineligible as of April 2019: Winners from October 2018 on VMK Anniversary rooms with unlimited OG furniture are NOT eligible for any BGR category ever. General F.A.Q, Tips & Tricks, and General Hoopla… Rooms do not need to be cohesive with the month’s theme, but rooms that fit the current month’s theme are always welcomed! All submission voting is done anonymously. I do not vote, so I can’t say whether or not this has any effect on the voting process. It never hurts to follow the theme, but it doesn’t harm you to not follow the theme either! It’s all about creativity! If you are submitting for Best Game Room, please try to have your room open as many times as possible during the month. You might see one of us pop in to come visit! Plus, everyone loves a good player-made game! You can submit the same room each month, however I personally don’t suggest doing so. Here’s why: we love seeing creativity and how you all incorporate new months’ releases into your rooms! Seeing the same submission each month can get tiresome. Spice it up! Other Important BGR Shenanigans Info… The submission process will be changing! You will no longer need to submit via email, but by Google Form! This will begin on May 1st, 2018. Please be on the lookout for a submission link on this thread and on the Newsletter and on Twitter! Submissions will need to be uploaded to an external image hosting website (Imgur is probably the best for this! You can find FAQ on how to upload to Imgur by clicking this LINK!) *This might be trial and error for a few months and we might move back to e-mails if it doesn't work! Honorable Mentions! I’m going to see what we can do about getting an “Honorable Mention” list of the runners up in each category so that we can showcase everyone's hard work. Even if it’s a quick video added on our Instagram (shameless plug @aroundmyvmk) and Newsletter! I’m not sure it’ll be implemented right away, but I love this idea! To avoid anyone missing out on winning in future months, it may be a list of in-game names! Once I have this sorted, I'll share here! You can absolutely submit a room for each category! If you want to submit one room for Best Game Room and one room for Best Guest Room, have at it! Just remember that you can only win one time, per category, per 6 months. There’s a chance that prizes may be switched up in the near future! A few designers have expressed the idea to revamp the BGR prizes! Be on the lookout for more information in upcoming Newsletters! I can’t say what, how, or when, but it’s definitely something we’re currently discussing! Please remember that BGR Submissions are due on the 28th of each month (except February when they’re due on the 25th!). I will do my best to send out reminders from now on, toward the end of each month! If you have any additional questions, plop them below! I can most definitely add to the list of hoopla up above at any time to incorporate any F.A.Q's or things you guys want to see on there. ***It’s important to note that these rules and guidelines can be modified at any time. They are new, so it’s going to be trial and error at first. I will update this thread as changes are made and make sure to update everyone via our Twitter (@MyVMK) with information.
