Please scroll down, below the ranking table, to see guidelines on how we determine who wins what prizes. We reserve the right to not award all 6 prizes in any given contest if there are only a few contestants submitting high caliber material.
Current Rankings For 15 Day Contest. Below are the current standings for this 15 day contest period. Each color group contains two columns. The first is a sum, count or average for the judging category. The second, the R column, is the member's current ranking within that judging category. See the key beneath the table for a more complete explanation.
Note: Clicking on any of the column headers of this table will re-order the table based on that column.
These rankings are for clips that have been posted in the current 15-day video contest.
Only females or couples are eligible. Sorry guys ;-). Also, only nude clips are considered for the contest.
How do you win?
This is a contest and as such it is treated entirely as a 'meritocracy'. Those who produce the best clips, in sufficient volume, to beat their fellow contestants, will win prizes that reflect their relative competitive standings.
% of Total Views is our 'default' ranking variable b/c it is the equivalent of a 'box office' ranking in that it reveals what people are actually watching, but instead of expressing this in total earnings, as is done in the film industry, members express the relative appeal of each contestant's videos based on their actual video viewing patterns. This % stat combines total video views, total repeat views, total time spent watching videos etc., and presents all these stats as an aggregate % relative to total viewing activity for all clips in the current contest. (And, of course, we have protections in place to prevent unscrupulous manipulation. If any such activity is detected or even suspected, the member in question will be banned immediately.)
So, to cite a few examples, a member who has a 20% Total Views score has garnered 20% of ALL the 'viewing activity' for all clips in the active 15-day contest. Someone who has a 10% value has garnered 'half' the amount of video viewing activity as a person with 20%, and has been the beneficiary of 10% of ALL the video viewing activity for all videos in the current contest.
There is no fairer, more appropriate, or more honest indicator of relative popularity than this statistic. It is unbiased, it is unflinching, and it is entirely member driven. We have always been a 'member driven' community and rewarding contestants who post what our community actually wants to see will now take primacy over all other factors. Consequently, % of Total Views rankings will function as a 'major' determinant of who wins what prizes.
With respect to 'time', each contestant can submit a maximum of 2.5 hours per 15 day contest. Once a contestant has reached at least 90 minutes, she/they will be considered amongst the upper tier of posters, and % of Total Views and 'quality' differences will be 'more decisive' than who posted more content.
As indicated by our rating table, in determining our winners, we will also factor in obvious variables such as the 'quality' and 'total run time length' of your videos, the average 'rating' of your videos, and the 'quantity' and 'regularity' of videos submitted over the course of the 15 days. We like to see videos submitted consistently and throughout the 15-day period.
Former winners are eligible, but the onus is on them to produce high quality, creative, compelling clips worthy of winning again. Lack of imagination and repetition will not be rewarded. Of course, if what is being 'repeated' is very engaging, exciting footage, then that's quite acceptable.
Strategy and decision making about when to compete hard and try to win 1st place outright versus deciding to go to lesser effort and instead strategically settling for a runner up position rest solely with the contestants. We take zero responsibility for this.
All judging decisions are made by a panel of 3 judges. Decisions are final.
In order to bias members more toward 'quality' clips rather than repetition and 'grinding out longer run times', we're going to start flagging particularly great clips with 'Editor's Choice' citations (ECCs) in their 'captions'. ECCs will now be handed out only for 'exceptional' clips b/c they have become too commonplace and thus meaningless. ECCs may or 'may not' be given out in any given 15-day contest, depending on their relative importance in helping to differentiate b/w the leading contestants.
Should ECCs be handed out in any given 15-day contest, they will be given at the judges' convenience and not on any particular schedule.
Please relax and realize that the people who run this site are not MORONS. We are well aware of various 'tactics' that can be employed to manipulate these rules to a contestant's benefit.
Also, we are WELL AWARE of malicious tactics sometimes used by unscrupulous competitors to try to undermine other participants. It is sad that people will not follow the 'honor system' and behave properly without being policed. 'Ratings' are only ONE factor considered in who wins. Your entire BODY OF WORK within the contest period will be considered when the final results are decided upon. If your content is 'obviously' fantastic and superior to that of one of your competitors, yet MIRACULOUSLY this competitor always seems to have higher ratings, we will OBVIOUSLY factor this in. If you have impressive content, yet your 'average rating' is a 5/10, believe us when we tell you, we will CERTAINLY notice this very strange discrepancy.
Also, if there are 'patterns' where a member or members are consistently behaving in a destructive, unsportsmanlike fashion, we will 'ban' them and award them no prize money whatsoever.
As in any contest, please refrain from trying to 'influence' the results by contacting those who run the contest (i.e. the owner of the website, administrators etc.) with the explicit intent of trying to curry favor to sway final decisions on ECCs or final standings. We don't need to receive 'policing' reports on the behavior of other members nor 'promotional' emails trumpeting the greatness of any particular clip.
The short version of this is really simple: Play fair and play nice and HAVE FUN. Focus on doing 'your best'. The rest will take care of itself. If your competitors are not doing the same, WE will notice this. It will have ZERO impact on your final standings or prize winnings.
Also, although any member who submits more than 1.5 hours of content is automatically considered in the 'upper tier' of posters, this does not preclude someone from winning who happens to submit only, say, 1 hour of content, yet whose content is of exceptional quality.
TT judges will make their decision after taking into account 'everything' that has been stated above.
