Revels to Riches - part II|
~ Your poem MUST NOT appear on any Nexus board (community, clan, subpath, etc.) prior to the announcement of winners for that week. If it does, your entry will be disqualified. You are welcome to post your poems only after the winners have been announced.
~ All entries must comply with all Nexus/Kru Inc. rules.
~ Entries must be "In Character".
~ Entries are not allowed to have any alcohol/drug/smoking references. Nor are sexual innuendo's permitted.
~ Your entry must not contain any unique personal information that may reveal your identity, such as clan title or personal title.
~ Poetry contest entries are no longer allowed to contain lines or characters not pertaining to the poem itself. This includes all "ASCII" and "artwork" or "decorations" made by using assorted characters found on your keyboard. The contest entry should only include the title (if applicable), the poem, and the EXACT name of the author at the bottom. This is a poetry contest, not an art contest. Poetry contest entries containing these characters will not be counted in the revels the week they are entered.
Rules & Plagiarism - Part II
~ You may not submit an entry if you have been banned in any form from Revels to Riches or the Story Contest. Ban legend marks are permanent, and will never be removed from a character's legend.
~ You are not required, but encouraged, to recite your poetry at the Ministry of Koguryo Revels. However, this is a totally separate event that has no bearing on the judging of the poetry Revels.
SUBMITTING A PLAGIARIZED ENTRY IN THE POETRY REVEL MANDATES A "SERIOUS OTHER CRIMES" JAILING AND A LIFETIME REVEL AND STORY CONTEST BAN!
~ Using someone's work other than your own is an extremely serious matter. Not only is plagiarizing unethical and immoral, it is grounds for expulsion from Colleges or Universities and is grounds for termination from employment from any writing or publishing environment. Kru must take a similar view on plagiarism. Since Kru Inc. in effect becomes the "Publisher" of your work; Kru Inc. must endeavor to prevent publishing plagiarized work. Stealing someone else's work can result, in extreme, but common cases in financial loss to both the publisher and the person that submits the stolen work.
So, by entering in the Poetry Revels you are certifying that your entry is your own Original work and that you have all Rights to it. That you understand that submitting work that is not your own can result not only in those penalties prescribed by Kru, but you may be liable for damages (personal financial loss) outside of Kru as allowed by those laws pertaining to copyright infringement. You are further certifying that you are allowing Kru to publish your work electronically on Nexus and Kru, and thus putting your work into the public domain.
PLEASE REFER TO LAW 91 ON THE LAW BOARD - Said law of 4/25
as posted by Cerulean is incorporated herein and made a part hereof.
~ Any party who buys a poem will be jailed for other serious and banned; this is also a form of plagiarism. Also, the party who has sold the poem will share the same fate as the party who purchased it and WILL BE BANNED and jailed for serious other. Should you obtain EE san by illegal means and are caught, you will be stripped of that title as well.
Should any of these rules be broken, it will result in disqualification, possible banning from future Revels and Story Contests and possible justice consequences.
If you should have any queries about these rules, or have evidence or knowledge of them being broken, please contact either Poems or the Revels Archon via n-mail.
~ Please remember that entries are to be sent to Poems ONLY
Thank you and enjoy the Revels!
