We are getting some very important feedback on our advocacy program.
First, thank you so much for your hard work. You are making a huge difference for the stereoscopic 3D industry by encouraging video game developers to follow this simple programming standard for the best 2D and S-3D output possible.
We are very sensitive to how our advocates come across, and we don?t want to be falsely declared as spammers. Reading through the text used in the advocacy forums, I think it is very good and informative. Our signature, on the other hand, is giving people the wrong impression.
Moving forward, if you are starting a brand new thread in a video game forum to encourage MTBS certification and S-3D technology, please refrain from using our advocacy signature. It?s too much, too soon.
The signature is only appropriate if the thread is already well established, or you are already an experienced poster on the forum and you are just adding the signature to pre-existing material that may or may not have anything to do with S-3D.
In addition to the FG/MTBS contest, don?t forget about our advocacy incentive! We will be giving away 22" and 17" iZ3D monitors! You can get more information in the Member Benefits section. Your work counts towards both programs equally.
So far our top three leaders include:
Denaris with 266 points
Freke with 172 points
RugWarrior with 120 points
Denaris scored all his points over the past few days, and I think his enthusiasm has something to do with his up close and personal iZ3D review found HERE.
I?m going to have another big announcement next week, so keep up the good work, keep posting, and give us as much feedback as you can as to what works, and what would work better moving forward.
We are making an adjustment to the contest registration. There is a lot of confusion because many of you haven?t done MTBS advocacy before, and it is a fair bit of work the first time around.
We?ve updated the registration process as follows. Complete any of these tasks ONCE, and you will be registered for the contest:
1. Place the MTBS banner on a personal website (not just as a signature!).
2. Submit an MTBS certification request to customer service for an individual game.
3. Start or contribute to an MTBS certification thread on an official game forum. No less than a complete paragraph, please.
4. "Friend to Friend Referral Network" success (5 new MTBS members). You can access this in the "Member Benefits" section.
Our web designer has updated the contest page to reflect this.
If you are posting an MTBS certification thread, make sure you post a link HERE.
If you are submitting an MTBS certification request to customer service, post your screenshot HERE.
Try to avoid duplicated game threads on MTBS. It?s important to post about your efforts so other MTBS members can jump on board and help push your advocacy along.
