Why do we have to wait until August 1 to start the new contest?

Because if you start MOTW #10 during July, that wouldn't be part of MOTM: August 2013,

I Have a little tip.

As you can see, Basket_boy123 won MTOW7 & 9. Giving him a bigger chance to win MOTM.
I Think if Basket already won 1 Contest (MOTW7 for Example) & also wins MOTW9. Then he should
only be listed in MOTM once. Then Martincho should be listed because he won second place...AAAGH!
Its hard to explain but do you understand what i'm saying?

MOTM is for the winners of the MOTW of this month right? Does that mean the ones who won MOTW once, they don't have to join the next MOTW until the MOTM is already finished?

The featured thing is the mission, not the creator.
You are allowed to join MOTW as many times as you can, however you can't join if you're hosting it.


Besides, the winner of the previous MOTW gets to create the next MOTW. MOTM is simply an extra poll.

I advise you to start MOTW 10 right away now. Why is MOTM even here ? All it is - a useless topic, and than we have to wait few days or 1-2 weeks to make new MOTW. The winner of MOTM gets the same as you would whan you win MOTW. And for MOTM you have to wait till the other month to start another MOTW. Useless, that how I see.

With all due respect, you don't know a thing or two about MOTM. Calling it useless is very offensive, especially for the winner. MOTM is an extra poll for MOTW that sees which Mission of the Week was the best during that month. Simply put: MOTM helps MOTW stay alive.

I K. But MOTM is the same as MOTW, if you win MOTM you get to host the following MOTW, if you win MOTW you get to host the following MOTW. I mean srsl, you get the same from MOTM and MOTW.

The point is not reward. If your mission win MOTW and later MOTM, that means the mission is simply awesome. As the name says: Mission Of The Month. Quality & quantity in same time.

Or ask Patrick or Dutchy if you can place a MOTW section in DYOM's Hall of Fame (? LOL

How about we PM Chips about the theme, and he makes the thread? It's annoying when users just can't make a simple thread for a contest, no ofence.

Would be unfair in my opinion. Every winner is given 3 days to create the thread, which should be enough.

I think we should give more time on mission making, and less time on voting.

For those who didn't keep up, here are the new rules that were added, along with some more useful info:
- The winner of the previous MOTW will get to host the next MOTW, but if he/she doesn't make a thread before 48 hours, the head admin will take over.
- Though this is not an official rule, recommended size of the header is 640x400
- The hoster of the MOTW can vote, but cannot submit a mission. (Effective since MOTW #5)
- During voting, the participants of the MOTW must post who they voted for, otherwise the participant(s) who did not post will get a -1 vote.
- The head admin is AnDReJ. I am only supervising while he isn't around.
- The hoster of the MOTW must balance out all seven days of the week. The amount of voting and submitting days should also not surpass seven days, hence the name Mission of the Week.
- You are able to advertise your mission on the submission thread before voting begins.

Mhm..

I think Hosters of MOTW should be given a chance to win that MOTW again, creating a chain of victory until someone breaks it.

Personally i think its a great idea (And not just because i'm leading the current MOTW).

But i think many would find it unfair & Some would also give up & Leave the Host alone with his Victory.

So lets just leave it as it is.

Wow! Amazing idea, i really liked it :p

But designers will spend lot of time making missions, but apart from that it's awesome!

Well we should also have some kinda reward for a victory streak (like a bronze award for 5 victory streak, then silver for 10 and so on)

Not missions deep in the storyline, but early ones.
