IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS!

Hi shippers!
We've been working hard on HSO stuff throughout this past weekend, and we have some important announcements to make. There's a LOT of info under these cuts, so please read carefully!


Icon Notes


Be advised that certain icons used by palhonchos who posted to the R1 comm may have flashing animations or potentially triggering images! The comm style is set to hide all icons and if you haven't changed anything about your settings you should be fine, but if you set your Journal View to the default skin and have concerns about being affected by icons, you may want to view entries inline rather than clicking through.


Sectors and Assignments


First: since there are so many of you, we've decided to use a bracket system for voting. In the first phase, which will last until June 30 July 7, 11:59PM EDT (we'll remind you when voting goes up), you'll be divided into four different sectors of approximately equal sizes. Your sector will be assigned another sector's entries to read/watch/listen to, and you'll be asked to vote for the top 5 in that sector. The 12 entries that receive the most votes in each sector will move on to Phase 2, which everyone will be asked to read and vote on.
So, in summary:
  • Now through June 30 July 7 - read the entries assigned to your sector and vote on them (once the voting form goes up).

  • July 1 through July 8 July 8 through July 14 - read the top 48 entries (12 of which you should have already read) and vote on them (once the voting form goes up).



SECTOR 1 (if your team is on this list, please read Sector 2's entries)

SECTOR 2 (if your team is on this list, please read Sector 3's entries)

SECTOR 3 (if your team is on this list, please read Sector 4's entries)

SECTOR 4 (if your team is on this list, please read Sector 1's entries)

Unlocking Entries


We've discovered that we're unable to change the security level on entries ourselves, so unfortunately we're going to have to ask you to unlock your own entries! We'll try to come up with a better system for next round, but for now: if your entry was accepted to the comm but is locked, please unlock it as soon as you can!


Team Standings


Thanks so much for your patience while we sorted through the thousands of comments to get your point totals. We're still working on the points from Bonus Round 1, but here are the totals from the Pregaming Promotional and Bonus Round 0 only:

There are 121 total teams, with scores ranging from 0-155.
The mean (average) score is 65.79, and the median is 65. The mode (most often occurring) is 75, which 10 teams have. The quartiles are 40, 65, and 90. The standard deviation is 35.24.

If you think this is incorrect, please let us know! But be advised that we were not able to count certain bonus round entries because they did not meet the requirements.

Do the sectors include all teams, or only teams who have submitted for Round 1?

Thanks!

For some reason your tumblr's askbox is broken for me. What does Team English vote for?
farla: (Default)

[personal profile] farla 2012-06-25 11:47 am (UTC)(link)
I don't understand the fairness problem. Voting can't be perfectly balanced anyway since there's no way of knowing how many people in the teams will end up casting a vote or what teams might not submit for a round or drop out completely, plus it doesn't seem like teams get any advantage in terms of total votes that'd be affected by having more voters in one area than another. Am I missing something here?

[personal profile] thefuninfuneral 2012-07-07 09:35 pm (UTC)(link)
Hey, there! I'm just wondering if Farla's question was answered, elsewhere or by e-mail, because I actually don't understand this reasoning myself, reading it.

This is probably a stupid question, but I've never used Dreamwidth outside of this competition. How do you unlock an entry? I can't seem to find the option.
cest_what: (Default)

[personal profile] cest_what 2012-06-25 02:34 am (UTC)(link)
Not a mod, but you just click the icon (paper+pencil) to edit the entry, scroll down to the bottom of the screen to "Show this entry to", and change it from "Members" to "Everyone". :)

[personal profile] novatoast 2012-06-25 02:38 am (UTC)(link)
Not a mod

Go to your entry and click on the edit button, which looks like a pencil on paper (to me, not sure if it could be different). At the bottom of the edit page you should see a Show this entry to: with "Members" next to it and a save button to its right. Click on "Members" and your options should appear, select "Everyone" and save your post.

Aradia <> Tavros entry is not tagged. In the list it is in sector 3

[personal profile] myerfly 2012-06-25 06:46 am (UTC)(link)
Hey there! :) I have a quick question about the team standings! Specifically about the point total for Team Jade♥Rose? :o This is probably a little silly for me to even be bringing up, but I noticed that your tally for Jade♥Rose's pregaming + BR0 points is slightly different than mine? So I was wondering if I could... ask where the discrepancies are, haha, so that we can find out which entries were and weren't counted and then be able to avoid doing whatever it was that made them not count in the future? Hehe, sorry about this. ^^; Here's my count!

For the pre-gaming round, I counted 7 entries from members of Team Jade♥Rose: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
Since it was 5 points per link, then I figure that that should be 7 x 5 = 35 points for the pregaming promotional...

As for Bonus Round 0, I counted 11 entries from members of Team Jade♥Rose: 1 2* 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 (*Warning for strobes at link #2!)
The scoring for that round was 10 scored entries maximum, 10 points each for the first five and 5 points each for the second five, so by my count that's (5 x 10) + (5 x 5) = 50 + 25 = 75?

And then overall, the points for the pregaming promotional + Bonus Round 0 would be: 35 + 75 = 110 points total?

The main thing that occurred to me that might have gotten some of these entries disqualified was that the last 7 bonus round entries (including one unscored one) were made by editing someone else's artwork (though that artwork was used with permission! c: ), but the thing that's tripping me up is that, if those six entries were disqualified, then that would make the total 35 + 40 = 75 points, not 85 points as is stated in the official records? :?

Sorry for being so pedantic about this, hahaha, but I'm really curious as to which entries were counted and which weren't, just so that I and my teammates can avoid posting unscorable content in the future! ^^; Thanks so much for your time, and sorry again for being a bother! You HSO mods do so much fantastic work for us, and we really, really appreciate it. <3

Thanks again! ^^

Are the points from the pregaming promotional and the bonus round 0 retracted at all for moving teammates? I believe my team had ten entries in br0, which should have given my team (dirk<3roxy) 75 points. I participated in the pregaming promotional twice, which alone should've given us 85 points, but I know that others did it too. Was there un-scoreable content?

Fairly obvious to point out, but the numbers in the alphabetical list are not the same as those in the ranked list.

[personal profile] aondeug 2012-06-25 05:10 pm (UTC)(link)
I am looking through the team standings and the bonus round bits. I thought something seemed a bit odd, but didn't think to look into it until now. And now I have a question regarding both how the point tallying system works as well as my team's points.


Going by the list of things we gathered in our comm for BR1: http://teamdolofang.dreamwidth.org/1842.html

This has gathered everything we did for BR1. Which is...40 points for the prompts. The fills are 30 for the first five posts in each? We did a total of nine as a team in there...Bonus round 0 we have: http://teamdolofang.dreamwidth.org/720.html

All of that. I'm just confused at the amount of points we have, whether or not the number listed in the rankings is correct, and how the scoring actually goes about. Should we have more? Should we have less? I feel confused...

[personal profile] sadisticbutsweet 2012-06-25 05:45 pm (UTC)(link)
NOT A MOD, but this list only includes the pregaming promotional and the Bonus round 0 - Bonus round 1 hasn't been tallied in yet, so the numbers on here are only accurate up through Bonus Round 0. :)
aondeug: stupidsexy porrim (Default)

[personal profile] aondeug 2012-06-25 07:29 pm (UTC)(link)
Ah. I misread things then. Thank you for that. Was rather confused and now the matter's been cleared up...

How do you "unlock" your groups entry???

[personal profile] runespoor 2012-07-06 08:38 am (UTC)(link)
Not a mod, but to change the security on a post, you need to edit the entry (clicking on the first small icon with a pen and a page at the bottom of your post will do that), scroll down and change "show this entry to" to "everyone (public)".
