    tMP Website of the Month Competition - in a new guise...

    Due to popular request, and tMP does like to respond to requests of its members, we have decided to resurrect the Web site of the Month competition. We are going to re-launch the competition with the last few days of voting on the January competition, picking up from where it left off. At the same time, we will open a new thread to collect nominations for the May Web Site of the Month.

    The guidelines set out below are very similar to the original set of guidelines, but have received a slight “tweaking”, mostly in relation to dates and deadlines. For anyone who wishes to get their web site into the nomination process, check the WoM forum on or around the 1st of each month which is when the month’s nomination thread will be started.

    And as always …. Have fun!

    The Prizes:

    • A graphic tMP WWW Site of the Month award image to use on your www Site
    • An entry in the tMP WWW Site of the Month Roll Call
    • One month listing on tMP Forum Home page
    • One month promotional banner on tMP
    • 1st of month – nominations open
    • 10pm of 10th of month – nominations close.
    • 11th of month – poll opens
    • Midnight of 30th of month – poll closes.
    • 31st/1st of month – Winning site announced.
    Nomination guidelines:
    • A nomination must be seconded before it will be considered for the random draw for the final poll. The second must come from somebody who is not affiliated with the site being nominated. (We know this will be difficult to enforce, but please comply).
    • If your web site is selected for the final vote, it MUST be operational. If your site or server is not running at the time the poll is set, then an alternate site will take its place. There will be no exceptions to this rule.
    • All seconded nominations received within the 10 day nomination period will be quality checked by the tMP WoM team prior to be thrown into a hat and 5 final nominees will be selected for the final vote.
    • You can nominate your own web site, but you must sit out a month before you can nominate it again.

    • If your web site wins, it cannot be nominated again for another year.

    • A good web site is based on whatever makes you happy.

    • When you make a nomination, please include the WWW site URL and also a reason why you have nominated the site.

    • Only 2 nominations per member per month.
    Voting Guidelines:
    • Only 5 nominated and seconded sites will be entered into the final vote each month.
    • Initially, only “banding” related www sites will be considered.

    • A site can be disqualified or lose votes when:

    • We consider the owner or any other person related to the site rallies for votes. This does not include just mentioning the fact that the site has been selected in the poll. Site features may also be posted in this thread.

    • The style of the site is changed during the voting period. The web site must maintain its general “look” throughout the month. This does not include necessary “updates”, such as news items, diary alterations etc.

    • The site must stay active for the whole month.
    General comments:

    • Please do not post accusations of cheating. Anyone who has a grievance should contact one of the tMP team.

    • As a last request: Please write only positive, constructive comments. If you must write something critical, please add an explanation of what you don’t like, and a suggestion as to how this may be improved.
    • If you have any suggestions for additional guidelines, please feel free to post them here.
