The Winter Tour de Vizzed is here! You can find last season's results here:
https://www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=100680



Tour de Vizzed Updates

New Banner: Gray for Veterans
As of last Winter, there's a new banner competition for veteran users. Any user who has been registered for more than 7 years qualifies for this competition. It functions very similar to the White Banner. Additionally, a user can only win the Gray Banner competition once.

Biannual: Every 6 Months
The Tour de Vizzed went biannual last winter. That means it'll only happen 2 times a year instead of 4 times a year like it previously was. The TdV will happen every January and July. Adjustments to this may be made in the future but we'll be testing this out for at least a year to see how it goes.



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)
Gray Banner: Veteran member who has the most points so far in the competition (anyone who signed up more than 7 years ago)

Here's a link to the Tour de Vizzed Hall of Fame:
//www.vizzed.com/boards/tourdevizzed-halloffame.php

Here's a link to the Tour de Vizzed Results page:
//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
-Staff members are not allowed to feature their own reviews during the Tour de Vizzed

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.

Moving Ebay Listings for the time being does not count toward any of the Jerseys. The price guide feature hasn't been retrieving ebay listings in nearly 2 years because of ebay updating their scripts and me not finding the time to update my own scripts to reflect that so what I've been doing instead is, every few months, I buy a price guide from PriceCharting.com and batch add the data to the games. There's no reason to allow it to count since it's not beneficial to the site at all since all of those ebay listings are very outdated and those prices no longer reflect what's current.



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. None
2. Video Submission
3. Screenshot Submission
4. Moving Ebay Listing
5. Character Adding

Well, now since the activity has once again return to Vizzed, we can see a whole lot of competition finally happen with TdV, and hope we don't see someone scoring a Blue Jersey with only 4 posts.

As for The IB competing this month, personally, I may try and capture my 3rd TdV win, but to be honest, I more in likely will fail, even if I try to.

I'm really happy that there's a lot more activity now because it was really hard to do anything when the site was getting close to death. (I myself was pretty much off the grid for more than a year.)

I'm going to compete this time, what I want most of all is the blue jersey and I was hoping that the Gray jersey was for veterans in general, I had no idea it was 7 years.

It's been a while fellas, but I think I'll compete this TdV. I have no idea how long that will last, I doubt I'll make it to the end of the month, but I'll try. Good luck everyone!

I totally forgot about the grey jersey.

I think I know what I'm going for!

Cause I think I could actually get it. My only competition would be David and I imagine he's going to be pretty busy.... hopefully.

And if not... then we can fight over it until it rips in half and we both get really terrible looking usernames.

I was expecting to get a few Reds this TdV so I could be the user with most Reds won in all history, but with my limited free time forcing me to drop one of my staff roles things have gotten a bit more difficult, and even more with the rise in activity.

I'm happy to see good numbers in the daily results again, despite the fact that we still have some 11 hours to go for the day. I hope we can maintain those numbers all month long and make this competition amazing again (already enough Trump ripoffs around).

Good luck to all the participants!

Correction, I might aim more towards my strong-point which happens to be the Yellow Jersey, especially that I have two reviews planned, one game guide planned, as well as a Nintendo Direct Article (since Nintendo will more in likely air a Nintendo Direct this month) I'll be posting all in this month, plus me being a big word count poster.

On top of my strong jersey (Yellow), I might get some points in red & green because of my staff role, but other than that, that's mostly it. Like I said, I may attempt to win my 3rd TdV, but more in likely, that might not happen, I'll end up getting a few jerseys this month though, but that's mostly it.

I'm going to aim for the win, not only for the prizes at the end, but also to prove a point. I recently made a thread about the staff CP multiplier and how it negatively affects the TdV and how it can turn away both new and old users. I personally went through a lot of unfair disadvantages in Winter 2017, and I believe that turning off the CP multiplier or at least reducing it for the TdV would greatly help in getting people to participate. Hopefully the end results reflect what I am trying to convey, but with this new job I recently got my hours are limited. On the contrary, I started online schooling, so I could multitask that and Vizzed. Good luck to all participants in the competition.

Can we just leave all of the elimination/hangman/abc threads open during the TDV?

I never really understood why they were closed, everyone can post in them, and there just aren’t that many threads currently open.

Those are some of the most active threads, so if you want activity, don’t close them...

Barathemos : That might be too much activity. If one thread had a few members who post and then wait for the other active members to post so they can post again, that would be too much. Even if you limit each user to 1 post a day in each game, you have to think that's a free 15-20 posts a day.

I will not compete lol. I think I know why...not because of no activity. I need to fix that thing first before I can compete like I used too. Good luck to those who are though.

Lexatom : The CP multiplier drives away no one in this competition. CP multipliers know nothing about ranks, I'd still have my current 2x multiplier if I got demoted to Elite, and the only thing I'd lose is my drive to be active for having a quota to fulfill.

We've already gotten rid of the staff-only actions in Red, meaning the only issue would be the higher limit staff have for actions, which is more a Green issue that we've tried to deal with for years. There's no other staff advantage involved in Red, unless you think that we should reduce our regular activity on purpose when we're supposed to be the most active members regarding the RGR and VGR.

CP multipliers are rewards for our efforts and prolonged activity, no matter what rank we currently hold. Having them all disabled would place us all on the same boat, that's true, but if you watch closely, most of the active userbase is at the 1.75x multiplier already so barring me and the other four members above that multiplier you're all on equal grounds. A newbie has no chance, we will all agree, but they belong to a different league on their first TdV as they try to get used to the site and to a high level of activity.

I think Red is as fair for everyone as Yellow and Blue are right now. Like I've already stated, it's just that staff are used to a higher level of activity throughout the whole year, and I don't see why should we penalize that.

EX Palen :

It's not penalizing anything if everyone is on the same level. There's no argument about it, getting more CP than someone for the same action just because of your rank is plain unfair. Yes, staff put in a lot more work, but why would it be such an issue to only turn the multiplier off just until the TdV is over? The new goal with Vizzed is to offer a fair and even playing field, and a CP multiplier based on rank won't do any good for anyone for a competition such as this. It won't hurt to just turn it off until TdV is over. CP is nothing more than a number to show how many actions you have done or for bragging rights, no harm in turning off the multiplier just for this month. I remember being a part of the userbase who almost dropped out of TdV for good because of the unfair advantages. I have had many people sympathize with me about this issue.

Lexatom : "getting more CP than someone for the same action just because of your rank is plain unfair"

This is what I've been trying to explain to you in Discord. That sentence is wrong. Take me for instance. When I got my 2x multiplier, I was elite. It didn't go up when I became staff.

If I was demoted I would have the exact same multiplier. So would every staff member.

Lexatom : I clearly stated in my post, like zander has also pointed out, that multipliers have nothing to do with ranks. Multipliers are based in your CP total, plain and simple. You're basing your whole opinion in a misunderstanding. 

Besides, you more than anyone would know that the real disadvantage has nothing to do with Red, and while it's true people have complained about staff advantage in Red, we will all agree that what neutralizes the evident advantage staff have in Green will also have an effect on reducing that advantage in Red.

EX Palen :
zanderlex :

I swear I have been getting more CP than usual since becoming moderator. It was especially noticeable after becoming Global Moderator.

Even if ranks DO have nothing to do with CP multipliers, there should still be a system put in place for TdV for people to make the same base amount of CP for certain actions. It is still an unfair advantage nonetheless. I am aware of the many issues that the TdV has had, but right now this is the issue I am focusing on.
