AotM = Achievement of the Month
Ever since the Achievement board came out there have been all kinds of amazing goals and achievements posted. So we decided to hold a monthly contest where the users of RSC could vote on who they think had the best achievement for that month. Voting is held for 5 days during the following month (so for example, November's voting will be held for 5 days at the beginning of December). Only achievements that were completed in that month are able to be nominated for the voting.
1) Only Legit Achievements - Only achievements that are 100% legitimate are able to be in the AotM. False achievements will result in you being suspended from future AotM nominations. All achievements must be completed by you, on your own character. You can not nominate somebody who doesn't want to be in the AotM / does not have an achievement thread here on RSC.
2) RSC Only - Only achievements that are posted on the RuneScape Community forums are allowed to be nominated.
3) That Month Only - To be nominated, your achievement must have happened within the month that you are being nominated for. If you have a mass-achievement thread, in which you have many achievements posted over a large time period, only the month's achievements will be considered for the contest.
4) Bribing / Begging - All votes for AotM must be 100% legit, you are not allowed to bribe people to vote for you, in any way. This means paying them on RuneScape, in real life, or anywhere else. Votes must be placed honestly, and fairly.
5) Advertising - No advertising in any shape or form whatsoever is allowed. You cannot advertise for people to nominate nor vote for you, on RSC or off of it on any exterior website. If you are found to be advertising to try and lure people to vote for you, you will be subsequently removed from that competition and could face a long-term ban from being nominated in future competitions. To allow fair voting to ensue, advertising cannot be allowed.
6) Self Nominations - Only other community members can nominate you for an AotM, you are no longer allowed to nominate yourself. If your achievement is good enough, people will nominate you anyways.
7) Time Limit - You are only allowed to win an AotM award once in each respectable category every six months. This is to keep the AotM open to everybody, not just the same 3 people month after month. So please don't try to nominate somebody who won less than six months ago.
8) Reason For Nominations - When nominating someone, you HAVE to give a reason for your nomination, not just nominating someone because he owns, or is your best friend - so nominations with no reason will not count!
9) Proof Of Achievement - Anybody who is going to be in the AotM MUST have proof of their achievement. Stat achievements can be easily be proved (by looking at the HighScores), whilst item / other achievements are a little bit harder to prove. So from now on if we (the judges) think you need to prove your achievement, you will be asked to meet one of us in game. If you can not meet us in game to prove yourself, you will NOT be allowed in the AotM. Just posting a picture / video is not valid enough proof, we need to verify it in game.
