Points:

  • 2 per explanation (gotta be dope)
  • 2 per transcription (without explanations)
  • 4 per transcription (must have at least two dope explanations on it)
  • If you’re going to do transcriptions, not only do they have to be correct for the most part and formatted correctly, but you’ve gotta email me a LIST of the songs you put up so I can check them all and give you points accordingly (tomi@rapgenius.com, link to every song)

Rules:

  • No half-ass explanations: if you’re caught trying to cheat the system you will be disqualified
  • Transcriptions must be legit: this will be determined on a case-by-case basis, but if they aren’t good or are too short be prepared to have them not count
  • No upvoting/downvoting bullshit: if you’re caught with a bunch of suspicious upvotes/downvotes or upvoting/downvoting other people to make them look suspicious, you’ll get disqualified (just don’t do it please)
  • No mass deleting another user’s shit just because: if you’re caught being a dick as an editor, deleting someone’s explanations so that you can win, you’ll be de-editored and disqualified
  • Overall, just don’t be a dick and have fun: if you’re caught not having fun, I will be sad for you

The way it works:

  • At the beginning of each week I’ll make a blogpost similar to this one
  • During that week, you will be facing off against one other user to see who can get the most points
  • The user with the most points at the end of the week when I count up the scores (around midnight EST on the following Sunday) wins
  • The person with the best record at the end of the season wins!

Prizes:

  • 1st place: RG stickers + 2 RG shirts + grand prize
  • 2nd place: RG stickers + 2 RG shirts
  • 3rd place: RG stickers + 1 RG shirt

Get at it peepsssss!!!
