What is the Summer Contest?
The Z-I-v Summer contest is a yearly event that started in 2010. It is a simfile competition where users must create a simfile within one week depending on a theme. This goes on for 10 weeks until the top 15 enter VIP room, a 3 week final stage where the winner of that will be the winner of the contest. The winners of Z-I-v Battle Royale (djVERTICAl and darkanine) will co-host the event by picking the themes for each week.

FORMAT:
Summer Contest will start with a theme each week for 10 weeks. (Odd weeks picked by djVERTICAl, Even weeks picked by darkanine). After 10 weeks, the contest will enter “VIP Room” where 15 of the top members will throw down for 3 weeks, the most points at the end of VIP Room will be declared the winner of the 2018 Summer Contest.

LEADERBOARD:
We will also have an overall leaderboard. Points are earned by placing top 10 each week. Keep in mind leaderboard points will be different from vote points.

1st: 20 points
2nd 15 points
3rd 12 points
4th 10 points
5th 8 points
6th: 6 points
7th: 4 points
8th: 3 points
9th: 2 points
10th 1 point

How do I get in the VIP Room?:

1. Placing first in a week will get you a spot in VIP room.
2. The top scorers who have not won a week but have broken the top 15 by the end of 10 weeks will be in VIP room.
3. If first place already has a spot in VIP room and 2nd doesn't, the spot will go to 2nd. If 1st and 2nd are already in, the spot goes to 3rd. After that, the spot will open up another spot for the leaderboard to get in the VIP Room.
4. If there's a tie on votes in a week, then it's decided by most +5 votes, if there's still a tie after that, then it's most +4 votes and so on.
5. NEW: VIP weeks 1 and 2 will have themes to them. Final week will be a "free week" where anything goes (within the rules)

RULES:
1. You are required to vote. Failure to vote will void your entry for that week.
2. You are not allowed to vote for your own song.
3. ONE file per week.
4. Entries must be uploaded by the deadline. NO EXCEPTIONS!
5. The entries must be named accordingly: [Name of the Week's Theme] - Song Name (hyphen included). This is so the simfiles are well organized and easy to get to.
6. In the event of duplicate entries from multiple contestants, use the above format, while adding your name in parentheses.
Example [WEEK THEME] – Butterfly (Pandemonium X) and [WEEK THEME] - Butterfly (darkanine).
7. One member = One vote. Do not make alternate accounts to get more votes. We will find out and violation of this will result in being removed from the contest.
8. Don't make a ton of pointless drama in the thread. We will give you a warning if it starts becoming an issue.

SIMFILE RULES:
1. At least one chart is required. More than one is optional.
2. Songs must be rated in DDR's old scale of 1-10 or ITG's scale of 1-13. This is so ratings are consistent
3. Songs are required to be less than two minutes and thirty seconds, unless otherwise stated.
4. No keyboard charts. Pad style charts only.
5. Automatically generated steps are not allowed.
6. New simfiles only. Previous publicly released simfiles are not allowed.

Any violation of the rules will result in immediate disqualification from the week's theme or the contest itself.

VOTING:
Voting will be done ala PM. You can PM Pandemonium X, djVERTICAl, or darkanine your votes. PLEASE PUT THE WEEK’S THEME IN THE PM SUBJECT AND TYPE YOUR VOTES CLEARLY. Votes will be revealed at the end of the week along with the official results.

VOTING RULES:
1. Each member will get 15 points to distribute between as many songs as they want. All 15 points must be used when voting.
2. The max number of points you can give one file is 5.
3. Once your PM is sent, your votes are final.
4. You can still post your votes publicly and/or give feedback like before, but they will not officially count until the PM is sent.

Link to PMs for voting:

Only send your votes to one of us.

DEADLINES:
Week Deadlines will be SUNDAY 5pm UTC/1pm EST. No exceptions!

The contest will start SUNDAY MAY 5th! You can sign up by posting in the thread or sending me a PM. If you have signed up and still can't upload a file when the contest begins, let me know.

Any questions or concerns, let us know sooner rather than later.

no guarantee that I'll fully participate in this one since I signed up for last year's but I didn't do any rounds also I quit stepmania in general lol so not sure if I'll step some files once more but I'll keep an eye out on this contest and hopefully you do too for me for whenever I may submit a simfile Smile
I can try to create a banner but hopefully no one beats me to the punch this time Wink

Sure! I'll probably be in it for 2 weeks or so but it's better than nothing. Plus, new hosts! Always exciting.

ps verticai how come you haven't hit 100 posts with this much involvement in simfiling

Because I only really started on here about midway through the 2017 SC, and besides the odd contribution on some BEMANI game threads, I've pretty much only posted for contest simfiles I've made heh whoops >_<

I'm getting better at this whole deal, I just require bits of inspiration to come out of my hiding hole on here. This should help that along nicely! Maybe I'll even dive into my own category after this...?
