HOW TO ADD A NEW GAME OR GAME VARIATION TO THE DATABASE

If Twin Galaxies does not currently track a game or a provide a game leaderboard with a specific ruleset that you would like to compete on, Twin Galaxies provides the ability for you and the community to add new tracks to the Twin Galaxies official database directly!

THE MANNER IN WHICH A NEW GAME TRACK IS ADDED IS DESCRIBED AS:

Proposal and Sponsorship

First an individual user must "purpose" a game track to be added and supply an accompanying ruleset for how competition will be measured on that track.

Once proposed, the community will then be able to "sponsor" the proposal.

If a proposed game track receives enough sponsorship, it will become an official part of the Twin Galaxies database.

HERE IS HOW TO SUBMIT A PROPOSAL:

  • You must be a VERIFIED user.
  • Click the "Propose new track" from the drop down menu under SCORES/RANKS. .
  • Please fill out the submission form completely and accurately.
  • Click "submit"
  • In order to submit a proposal for a new track, you must have at least 10 submission points.
  • When a track is formally submitted, it is placed in the NEW GAME TRACK MARKETPLACE, where it must await additional sponsors to review and donate more submission points until the total amount needed to accept the track is accumulated.
In order for the track proposal to be accepted into the database, the system has been currently set to require an additional 25 submission points to be donated toward the track proposal.

Any VERIFIED user can donate to any track that they want to sponsor. Donating to your own proposal is allowed.

The minimum donation is 2 Submission Points.

  • When a track receives all its needed donations, the TOP 2 sponsors who donated the most submission points to the proposed track will be awarded the honorary title of FOUNDER and their names will appear in the database next to the accepted track. The original user who proposed the track will always receive the award of founder if the track is accepted.
  • You are allowed to "over donate" to any track. For example, if a track only needs 5 more submission points to be "paid in full" but you want to be certain that you get a "FOUNDER" rating, you are allowed to donate as many points toward that track that you think might get you there. It is all up to you!
  • THERE IS A STRICT "NO REFUNDS" POLICY IN PLACE WITH THIS SYSTEM. Once you donate, or submit a track proposal, any submission points you used will be gone. Please make your decisions carefully! We are excited to bring this new addition to you and your thoughts, participation and feedback are appreciated!
