NEW RULE ADDED - MUST READ OR YOUR ENTRY WON'T COUNT

Post by miniwargaming » Thu Mar 26, 2009 8:50 am

Okay, an important note came up regarding cheaters.

We have already caught some people submitting other people's miniatures.

So, in order to make sure that all entries are valid, I am adding one more rule:

New Rule: You must submit one picture your miniature along with a piece of paper that says "MiniWarGaming Platinum Brush Contest Entry [USERNAME]" (replace [USERNAME] with your forum username) in your entry.

For those of you who have already entered, please edit the original post and add the picture.

Any entries not following this new rule will be disqualified.

I really like this rule. Because there is so much scamming possible with mini's lately.
Check coolminiornot.com there's like a ton of material on it.

Be sure that I'm going to add that to my entry.
Kind Regards,

I was going to suggest that rule from the start...but I thought ppl were going to be sensitive about posting their mug-shot along with their mini's. Too late now.

SMILE EVERYONE!!!!!

See my entries. You can always crop the pictures like that or don't enter but I don't think thats a go.

You can cover your face with the paper.

Actually, we don't really even need your face - it's more the paper with your forum username.

By the way, what will happen with those cheaters? never to enter a painting competition anymore on this forum? Black list? Put up a topic about it so they are humiliated? torture them?
They deserve that IMO

I don't get any props for suggesting this rule in the questions thread a week ago? Idea thieves! Idea thieves! Call the Idea Police. :idea: :lol:

What about those people that own an awesomely painted mini that they didn't paint in the first place? If someone purchased an award winner on ebay, they can do everything the rules indicate by taking a photo with the piece of paper in there, but they didn't paint the mini in the first place...

There's always going to be scammers. Nothing you can really do about it.
