RPG Contest Pro/Amateur System
The system divides the entrants into two categories which separates them during the initial stages of voting.
To be in the 'Pro' category, the RPG entry must have been in the final poll of at least one of the last two RPG Contests. If an entry won any RPG contest, it also qualifies for the 'Pro' category. This is completely optional, if a member does not want their entry in this category, that's fine.
All other entries will fall into the 'Amateur' category.
The two sections of voting will go on simultaneously. In all likelihood, there will be very few entries in the 'Pro' section, meaning fewer rounds of voting. Once both have narrowed down the entries, the top five from each will go into the final poll to decide on the overall winners.
And that's it. Please note the 'Pro' and 'Amateur' names are temporary, the best I could think of at the time. In fact, everything is still in flux, and I am open to any suggestions for improving it. Do people even want to see such changes implemented, or are they fine with the current system?
I want to hear from you guys!
