Determining the Winners
Winners are determined based on the total, combined, unique downloads on the sprays you submit during the contest period. The winner will ideally have the highest quality and or most popular sprays with the gaming community. Basing it on downloads has the added benefit of allowing the general users to vote by simply getting what they came for, a quality spray. While contestants may go for quantity (14 max), higher quality or creative sprays are naturally downloaded more. It may only take one good spray to win the entire contest. Spray wisely.
All sprays will remain live after the contest ends but additional downloads will not affect the contest standings. Feel free to promote your sprays and member profiles responsibly, meaning, no spam. Only unique downloads are counted, repeat downloads from the same person are ignored.
The "Leaderboard" will display the current contest standings. All members that submit sprays during the contest period will appear along with their username, # of eligible sprays and the current combined download count.
Cheating will not be tolerated. There will be precautions in place to detect and ignore repeat downloads by the same individual. Sprays can be downloaded multiple times; but it will not increment the download count more than once per unique person. Gamesprays.com reserves the right to disqualify votes, sprays and if necessary, contestests. Don't cheat.
Feel free to send questions via the contact form. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
