    COMPETITION RULES

    Captions and Images

    • All captions must be your own work. Captions that are deemed too similar to existing submitted captions may be disqualified.
    • Captions must be in text format only. Weblinks can be included as part of a sentence, but captions must include some text and may not simply be a link to a picture.
    • All captions must comply with the forum rules. Captions deemed to be inappropriate e.g. explicit sexual references, offensive comments etc. may be disqualified.
    • All moderation staff can delete any posts for any reason. All entries are subject to approval by the moderation staff and all moderating decisions are final.
    • The winner of each Round will be asked to select an image for the next Round, but if there is no reply within 24 hours, the offer will be passed to the 2nd placed entrant etc.
    • Images submitted by Round Winners must be of reasonable size and quality and are subject to approval by the moderation team i.e. unsuitable images e.g. images depicting accidents resulting in injury or other inappropriate material will not be used.
    • Round Winners who select an image for the subsequent round must wait at least 3 hours before submitting a caption for their own picture. Captions posted earlier than this will not be admitted to the poll.

    Voting

    • Each round, captions will be gathered and posted in the voting thread (see below) and subjected to a public vote. Anyone is allowed to vote, but those who have entered a round are expected to vote in that round, and may not vote for their own caption. Captions voted for by their authors will be disqualified. Repeat offenders will be banned from the thread.
    • You have three votes and you can either split your votes 2-1, or give three captions one vote each. You must use all three votes.
    • Each caption will be assigned a letter code, and votes should be cast as follows:



      or

    • You cannot edit your votes once they have been cast, so please post carefully. Edited voting posts will be discounted.
    • Voting will be carried out in a separate voting thread here: https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/threads/f1-caption-game-2014-voting-thread.126394/ Please also subscribe/watch that thread if you want to play.

    Scoring
    Points are awarded to the captions that receive the most votes in the voting round. There are ten scoring positions:

    1st - 25 points
    2nd - 18 points
    3rd - 15 points
    4th - 12 points
    5th - 10 points
    6th - 8 points
    7th - 6 points
    8th - 4 points
    9th - 2 points
    10th - 1 point

    In the event of a tie for any position, points are averaged and shared (rounding down where necessary), e.g. two people tied for 4th will both receive 11 pts ((12+10)/2); 3 people tied for 1st will receive 19 pts ((25+18+15)/3) etc.

    In the event of tied scores in the final standings, the person with the most "wins" will be awarded the title.

    Entries by Tuesday 3rd April - 1600 BST - please mark your final entry appropriately, and remember that you cannot change it once it has been marked.

    Please read the full rules available in Post #1 before entering.

    Apologies for the late start to the season - as a result, Round 1 will be shorter than normal - voting will also be shortened, so please be prepared to vote for your favourites on Tuesday/Wednesday, so I can get Round 1 wrapped up before handing over the reins to @Jimlaad43 while I'm in Japan :cool: Cheers, and happy captioning!!

    Pierre Gasly ponders whether his suspicions of favouritism in the Red Bull programme are founded as he is given a new engineer.

    The Toro Rosso mechanics debate whether the lighter weight of a baseball cap outweighs the aerodynamical and safety related disadvantages it possesses against a helmet.
