BONUS AC RULES CHANGES↴
As mentioned in a mod plurk earlier this month, I decided to revamp the way I do bonus tag points in order to be hopefully less frustrating for everyone involved. This involved breaking tags into three categories, but I'm HOPING that it will actually make most threads easier to judge. See the new rules here:
► 25 Long Tags (5 pt) x6 total sets of Spam, Regular, or Long
You may receive 5pts for every 25 Long Tags you post. These comments can be taken from multiple threads, but may not including comments used to pass AC.
To qualify as a Long Tag, a comment must have at least two paragraphs worth of text. For clarity's sake, two paragraphs can also mean 125 words or more, but we are not expecting you to word count every tag to find out. As long as you're hitting about that length or more for all the tags you're counting, you'll be good. We are looking to be fair, not to be nit-picky jerks about it.
If you have a thread with mostly Long Tags and a few one liners thrown in, you can disclude those short tags (or add them to another bonus section) and use the rest. Whether it is network or in-person based does not matter.
► 25 Regular Tags (3 pt) x6 total sets of Spam, Regular, or Long
You may receive 3pts for every 25 Regular Tags you post. These comments can be taken from multiple threads, but may not including comments used to pass AC.
A Regular Tag is anything that isn't a Long Tag or a Spam tag. It's really just that simple. Whether or not it's network or log doesn't matter - for clarity's sake that means roughly more than 30 words and less than 125 words, on average. Again, you don't have to meticulously word count every comment to submit. Those estimates are so you have an idea of what we mean, and as long as you're in that ballpark it will be fine.
Leftover Long Tags that cannot be used for their own bonus may be included to reach the Regular Tag bonus.
► 30 Spam Tags (2 pt) x6 total sets of Spam, Regular, or Long
You may receive 2pts for every 25 Short Spam Tags you post. These comments can be taken from multiple threads, but may not including comments used to pass AC.
A Spam Tag (commonly referred to as "comment spam" within general DWRP culture) is most often quick, dialogue based conversations - usually taking place on the network, but not exclusively. For AC purposes, a Spam Tag is any series of tags where the average tag is two sentences or less. This is a ballpark estimate, so you can also consider this to mean approximately 30 words or less.
Leftover Regular Tags and Long Tags that cannot be used for their own bonus may be included to reach the Spam Tag bonus.
