    Question: What if multiple people happen to have the same idea and submit the same idea?

    We will take the first submission if posts are completely identical. The second identical submission would qualify as copying the first one. Keep in mind that 70% of the judging criteria is based on creativity and originality.

    Are we allowed to have text like your meme did?

    O yes you can add text like a conventional meme. You can also crop the screenshot. Just no editing of the actual screenshot. We are trying to get away from players heavily editing a screenshot so it doesn't even look like mabi anymore

    So we can use the classic impact bold meme text? With the white letters and black boarders?

    "The Promotion is open only to legal residents of the United States (including DC) and Canada (excluding Quebec)"

    How much do you need to adhere to this rule? Players from Europe can't participate?

    Wait... Is that a serious rule? No way. If so, i'm gonna be REALLY REALLY sad and disappointed. This is not even funny if all this time all my contest entries were nullified because of THAT rule. I'm gonna boycott with fellow Europe players.

    Not gonna complain about Nexon's logic that memes can be made without editing images. But THIS... Not gonna accept that ridiculous rule! I demand equality between all players!

    cant decide what type of meme to make so ill ask some questions to narrow down my choices

    # can i make a panel type/comic type meme?
    (a meme with multiple cropped/resized images that tells a story)
    # if comic type is allowed can i use the usual memes along with it?
    (like the images from this site https://makeameme.org/characters )

    # can i make a gif type meme?
    (a meme that is made up alternating images creating an illusion of moving image)
    (converting a recorded video into a gif image/and not adding special effects like glitters,etc.)

    are the only type of memes allowed the same to the example given above (the one saygo posted)

    This makes me quite upset. U.S only? really... No Australians?.. well damn, so the last time i put in a picture for a contest did it even matter? This is really discriminating and unfair for everyone who isn't American or Canadian. Well...... This stinks mate.

    Looking at this discussion, it seems I'll have to remove mine, I guess my brain was purposely trying to avoid the "US Only" bit of the rules...

    Also, 1 or 2 people have made edits to their memes that are more than just cropping and adding text, it'll be something if an entry like that wins.

    (I bet it got extended because there's barely any entrants, too)

    How many people actually read the entirety of the rules and eligibility?

    I usually do read the rules when i enter, but I'm also not a meme fan either. Although just to get out there to get used to doing something different. I read the rules ages ago but i don't know how i missed the restriction for people in other countries x.x .
