What is it?
Community choice is a rolling event that we have here on Erolair, meaning it is often starting up a new round after the last one ends. When a new Community Choice event has started, a new thread will be created, and all members will be tagged to alert them of the event.
Community Choice is the perfect event to express your love of a particular creator's work or to promote your own arduous endeavors! During the event, you can nominate items from the gallery or writing from the library to the most recent thread in the Community Choice Forum.
How-To & Rules:
• Simply rate (like, heart, llama, rainbow, etc.) on your favorite nominations!
• Nominate each piece in a separate comment.
• Nominate up to 3 pieces a week.
• You can nominate your own work or someone else's.
• Written works from the library ARE supported. If they make it into the selection, either I will post a formatted version of the work to the gallery and assign permission to the appropriate user or ask the user to post the work to the gallery with a link. A PSD template for basic written work cover image can be downloaded here.
• You can vote on as many each week as you want (all, none, etc.).
• On rare occasion, featured creators can tie. In this case both/all who tie will be rewarded.
Here's the really awesome part:
The top entries (numbers will fluctuate) will be added to the Community Choice feature collection that shows at the top of our main gallery page. The top-rated creator (creator of the art, writing, etc. that is most highly nominated in voting thread) will receive a special rank on the website for a period of two weeks. The "Community Chosen" rank is a special rank that can only ever be earned, never bought, etc. It is a symbol of our community loving your work and lifting you up, a "thank you" for sharing your awesome creations with us. At the end of the two weeks, the rank will automatically disappear, making way for the next creator to be chosen! ♥
