    LINE LIMIT: Minimum of 16 lines, Maximum of 64
    ** NO RECYCLING, NO EXCEPTIONS **
    •Recycling is the equivalent to that of a no-show and will be treated as such, thus resulting in a loss in favor of the participant whom chose to recycle and a win in favor of his/her opponent
    •Extensions may only be granted if a moderator has given consent prior to a verse being posted in the match OR your opponent gives his consent. Failure to acknowledge an extension request results in it being granted.
    •If granted, the extension will override deadline for both participants extending it for no more than 24 hours
    •CHECK-INS are encouraged, but not required
    •Verses MUST incorporate AT LEAST 1 of the provided topics or pictures
    •A failure to show will result in a loss and a sign out by default. A no show in the tourney will result in elimination.
    •If your opponent fails to show, you MUST STILL post AT LEAST 4 lines (4-15) AND 3 voting links in order to claim victory. A failure to post voting links will result in a loss.
    •A Championship Title WILL NOT be decided by way of no-show!!!
    •If an opponent fails to show in a Championship match, the remaining participant will be ranked as the number 1 seed, but will not be considered a Champion until a win by vote
    •Upon your second no show, you will be suspended for two weeks of competition. A third no show will result in a three week suspension and a fourth will result in a suspension for the remainder of the season. There is no suspension for first time no showers.
    • Competitors are limited to posting 3 times in their own match, which allows for checking in, posting votes, and posting a verse. For each post over 3 unless deemed necessary by the mods, the competitor will be docked one vote.
    • Each competitor may only post once in another competitors battle allowing for a vote and nothing more, if you would like an explanation or to explain as to why a vote was cast a certain way, you can pm them or point things out properly in the vote to begin with. Violating this will result in losing a vote in your match.
    • A verse can be edited if and only if it is the first verse to be posted and the other verse has yet to be posted or it is the second verse posted and a vote has yet to be received.

    Voting II


    First off I would like to say thank you for participating in the RSTL league thus far. It is a pleasure to read your material and watch the growth of some of you. Now saying that, I have noticed certain things with the voting process that has upset me. First off there are people voting on stories without even reading them. I do not understand this. Why even vote if you are going to provide such nonsense? I understand that people here don’t like each other but that hatred can be easily channeled to your stories. LP did a great job of that this week when he became angry with T.a.C and blasted him in his RSTL verse. It was impressive and one of his better work. However your feelings for towards another writer should NEVER affect the way you vote. If you hate LP, fine, hate him but do not refrain from voting for him because you think he’s a corny faggot. If he verse was better, he deserves the vote. Also, do not vote for you friends because you guy rub each other off in your free time. If they get mad at you for voting truthfully, they were not your friends and really, how many of you will ever go out to a bar with anyone here. Also, not voting on a Championship match is, and will always be, a deduction of votes. This time, for failure to vote on a Championship & Contenders match, you will lose 2 votes. So if Shadow votes on the Contenders match but not the Championship, he will lose 2 votes and vice versa. If he fails to vote on either match, he will lose 4 votes. People need to realize that the Championships are what attract people to this league and not keep it fair and respectable causes it to lose it’s thunder. I do a lot for this league and this unfairness is a slap in my face especially since, come tournament time, I actually give out money to the winner. If you feel like someone is voting unfairly, PM me and I will investigate. If I see someone voting unfairly, I will discount it. Running to T.a.C or NG will do you no good, no pun intended, because I won’t care and it will stick. Good luck everyone, let’s make this league good again.

    P.S

    When you vote, be sure to include the two big areas of their verse, the mechanics and the story, that you liked or disliked. If either one of those areas need work, state where and why. If you liked either of those areas, say why you liked them. If you had issues with someone's verse, it is MANDATORY that you state why and what they can do to improve. Otherwise, the vote will be disqualified. This is what people need to hear in order to improve their writing skills and a lot of you have improved. I will be watch everyone's votes and T.a.C and NG will be watching mine as well as others. When a vote is disqualified, feel free to PM a/all the mods and explain your case because only a mod can ask for a disqualification to be overturned. if you have any questions, ask.
