Thats right NS, we've launched it once, fucked it up, tested and tested again, and finally its ready to bust out.
In preparation for our online qualifier, we wanted to warm you up with
a short online rail Jam. We're going to run it for one week, and the
winner will walk away with a Studio411 six-pack of videos.
"This contest marks the beginning of a new era of competitions. Here at
Newschoolers we are lauching a series of online contests, that will
start small but gradually grow over time. The main idea here is that
you shoot your trick in the comfort of your own home park, and then
upload it to our contest system to compete with other skiers!
is done by you the community, so there's no judges to be pissed at
other than yourself. We're limiting the voting to one per account per
IP - so if you have more than one NSer in your house only one of you
will be able to vote. We're doing it this way to make it really hard
for you scummy cheaters out there to scam the system!
this should be a cool way to work it through the season. We'll be
keeping stats on performances throughout the year, and one day will
tally up who is truly the most talented skier on NS.
even if you figure out a way to cheat the system, DON'T DO IT. I
mean come on we all want to know who is the best, and we all complain
about shitty judging, so this is the one way to get the true opinion.
If someone's trick was better than your buddy's then vote it higher.
Don't just vote for your friends because they're your friends, vote for
who truly is the best and together we can re-define the way that
skiing contests work!
Also, we have limited the types of files
you can use to flash video. So you've got to upload it to something
like YouTube or Google Video before you post it. That way there's no
conflicting file formats!"
So get your trick uploaded and paste the code in here. Watch and vote and keep it fair!
