The Spring Tour de Vizzed is here! You can find last season's results here:
https://www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=83297

For those who missed out on the last 2 TdV competitions, we had a big change: The Red and Green Jerseys are now based on Contribution Points and Actions! And I also added a Hall of Fame page. Another new addition are the daily double point actions.



There were 2 new additions to the last TdV and those additions are here to stay:

Staff actions do not count toward the Red Jersey competition. The only 2 staff actions that do count are Game Content (and that's because regular users can submit content to games, they just have to have staff approve it) and Graphic Adding (and that's because I'm adding a new feature which allows regular users to add graphics to games; more info on that later today). Overall this update will help make the Tour de Vizzed more fair for non staff members. I should point out though that staff actions do count toward the Green Jersey still.

It's possible to earn 7 points toward a Jersey. If you get 1st place in a Jersey for the day and your score for that Jersey is doubled that of 2nd place, you'll get 7 points for the day instead of 5. So for example, if you made 100 posts for the Blue Jersey competition and 2nd place had only 30 posts, you'd get 7 points instead of 5 points. This should be a great way for users to have a chance to catch up late in the competition because there have been so many TdV competitions where there is such a big gap between 1st and 2nd that it's impossible to catch up and that turns users off from the TdV and usually results into the competition dying off. It'll also be a great way to reward users who want to go above and beyond by doing even more for the site each day so it also encourages more content submitted to the site. This is an experimental new feature, if you guys end up liking it, I'll keep it, if you guys end up hating it, I'll get rid of it.



Here's some brief TdV info:

Each day there will be 4 Jerseys you can compete for:
Yellow Jersey: Most words in a day
Blue Jersey: Most posts in a day
Red Jersey: Most CP in a day
Green Jersey: Most CP actions in a day

If you get 1st place in a Jersey for a day, you get to "wear" that Jersey the following day. To "wear" it means that the background of your username will have a unique background graphic. Only the top 5 places of each Jersey gets points, 1st gets 5 and 5th gets 1. Whoever has the most points for any Jersey at the end of the competition gets to wear that Jersey for the entire next month. If you have more than 1 jersey, your jersey receives stripes for each jersey color you own.

Along with the Jerseys are Banners that change your username color. They basically represent who has the most points total:
Rainbow Banner: Whoever has the most points so far in the competition
White Banner: New member who has the most points so far in the competition (anyone who has signed up in the past 3 months)

Here's a link to the Tour de Vizzed page:
https://www.vizzed.com/boards/tourdevizzed.php

Brief results can also be found on the forum index page.



Tour de Vizzed Rules:

You'll be DQ'd if:
-More than 25% of your daily posts are made in one of the following forums: Crazy House, Vizzed Market, Polls and Questions, Video Game Craziness, Newbie Forum (unless posts are made in your own thread then it's 50%)
-You copy content from other websites or other posts
-You use the "tabbing" technique to make a bunch of posts in a short amount of time
-You're caught cheating or unfairly earning Contribution Points
-More than 25% of your daily posts are made in the same thread (your own thread and staff threads are an exception)
-If 50% or more of your daily words are posted in the final hour of the day

Additionally:
If you get DQ'd just once from a Jersey, you can no longer get points for that Jersey for the rest of the month. We will be very strict from now on with the Tour de Vizzed. Only CP actions which you earned CP off of count toward the Green Jersey.

If you get DQ'd from too many Jerseys in too many TdV competitions, you'll be DQ'd from the TdV forever. Also, if you get DQ'd from a single Jersey in too many competitions, you'll be DQ'd from that specific Jersey forever.

Also, if 50% or more of your daily words are posted in the final hour of the day, you'll be DQ'd from the Yellow Jersey. Too many users have waited until the end of the day to submit a bunch of reviews to the site and that's unfair to users competing.

The Game Content action no longer counts toward the Green Jersey. The action still counts toward the Red Jersey though.



Additional Tour de Vizzed Info:

Some CP actions only count as 1 per day. In other words, any action in the below list can only increase your Green Jersey points by 1:
Forum Navigation, Review Rated, User Referral Posted, Video Rated, Post Spell Checked, Visiting Vizzed, Screenshot Rated, Post, Game Commenting, Thread, Thread Reply, Chat Room Minute, Staff Forum Post, Staff Forum Thread and Screenshot Details Added.

These CP actions do not count toward the Green Jersey: Game Content.

Each day there will be a specific CP action which will be worth doubled the points which benefits the Red Jersey competition. Below is a list of which actions are worth doubled on which days this month:
1. Game Streaming

You should have waited a little bit longer before making that post. You could have gotten an early jump on the Yellow Jersey.

Azul Fria : I actually did post it at exactly 12 AM on April 1st but I ignored the words of my post since most of it is copy and pasted from the last TdV.

Ah, another TdV. Well, unlike last time, I won't be competing that much this season, because I have already won last season, what's the point of winning this month's TdV

But anyways, I wonder if my TdV record of 335 will hold up this month or have a new record set this month, we will never know until the month ends. Even know I will be watching this TdV from the sidelines and as a mod, I want to say. Good luck on all of the users competing in the 14th TdV.

IgorBird122 : I think this TdV will be more balanced since I'm thinking more users will compete for the top ranks. With that said, I doubt anyone will get anywhere near 335 this TdV.

This TDV I'm hoping to at least get in the top 5 and earn some jerseys. Good luck to everyone competing in this month's TDV and may the best user win.

Now it's official: Spring is here!

I hope we have a fierce battle like last season. And maybe finally we can have a user who has won more than one TdV, though I would prefer that to happen in Summer, since it would be perfect to celebrate the 15th TdV.

I'll be honest, I'm a bit disappointed the TDV cane back so soon, at least what it feels like. I'm going to be going for the top, but I will be doing things a bit differently this time. I'm going to be doing bits and pieces here and there for the first week, and then once April 8th comes, everything will change.

Davideo7 : That is true, last season, the only ones competing was me and Zanderlex, at least for 2/3 of the month in January, everyday last season, me or Zander was in 1st place somewhere in the results, and we both scored multiple 7 pointers.

I think this month might be more tamed because me not competing this month and Zander said he may compete this month but not too wildly than last season.

I haven't decided if I am going to compete the whole month of april or not. I am moving again so it really depends on if I have internet access the whole time and free time.. if it works out like I have planned I may compete. I do wish everyone good luck this month though.

This time I'm ready to rock. Since February I've been stocking on game reviews and I've been perfecting them too. Even for "regular" games - I usually do RPGs - I was able to maintain at least 1400 words.

So a note to moderators: I ahve a lot of back up.

thing1 : We are currently discussing the idea about the Team Competition, I was suggesting a Time Zone competition, but a few users said it's a bad idea because others can change that to a winner's team, we are trying to see on what we are going for.

We hope we can be able to figure out something before the day ends today.

IgorBird122 : Why not use my suggestion from last Tour de Vizzed? First letter of the user's name. a-c, d-f, etc... and then do y, z, and #. or make 9 columns, and then going acorss... so the first team would be... A, J, and S, 2nd team would be B, K, and T, etc...
