Opening Announcement

Postby nessieq » Thu Aug 07, 2008 10:17 pm

It is with great pleasure that we hereby announce the opening of the Moya Brennan Forum Olympic Games!!

From all countries of the world, forumers have been gathering and training to compete in this, the most prestigious of events. Now, the torch is lit and the competitors take their marks, preparing to do battle in a series of events testing creativity, Moya-knowledge, and physical endurance.

The prize? Glory. (As well as 25 signed copies of ‘Green to Gold’ and an A3 poster for our lucky winners.)

The games will take place throughout the 'real' Olympic and Para Olympic Games. As the Games progress, new competitions will be unveiled, testing new skills. There will be a total of five competitions, each with five winners. The duration and rules of each competition will be stated at the beginning of that competition’s topic, along with details as to how to submit entries. The first Game will appear on the forum shortly following this announcement. The names of the winners of each competition will be posted at the end of the Games, after which winners will be given details of how to claim their prize.
Any Moya-Olympic Chat should be posted in this, the General section of the Olympics, in order to avoid confusion in the other topics.

General rules of the Games are as following:

- Each competitor may only enter each competition once. If a competitor posts twice in the same competition, their first entry will be taken as their entry for that competition.
- Each entry may only be used for one competition- competitors may not use the same answer twice (this is particularly important in the Creative Games).
- The Games are open to current members only. Non-members may view, but not participate in, the games. Members who register after the opening of the Games will automatically be disqualified.
- Moderators will not be taking part in the Games, due to their involvement in their creation.
- Moderators withhold the right to disqualify competitors without warning for any breaking of the forum rules, which still apply to these Games.
- Any competitor, if a winner of one previous competition, although they can take part in subsequent competitions, they will not count as for the prizes. EG You can only win 1 CD etc. In such cases those coming 6th (etc) will receive the prize on the subsequent competitions.

Any questions or queries are to be directed to the Official Game Referees (the moderators).

Let the Games begin!
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
