    Post Regarding the miscommunication in Tour of Arlor Rules

    I won't throw any rocks at STS Team in this thread. Please keep it hate free.
    Just wanna point somethings out and make some questions about the infamous Tour Of Arlor 2 rules.



    If you're running this Contest you may know that we had NEW rules on this week challenge(which is almost ending). I've seen a Remiem's post where she says that "would be cool if we post the contest pics with 800 pixels". Indeed, I would like to attach the image the way it is, without quality loss of pixel crop(?). But attaching pictures in their original quality isn't allowed in Tapatalk(app that also runs the forum) unless you BUY the "VIP" mode.

    We still have the forum running on Web, Chrome or whatsoever, which perfectly provides us the support to attach the images without any struggle IF you're using PC. I am not talking about me only, I've talked to many mobile users and they faced the same problem while trying to use forum during the Tour of Arlor 2, without tapatalk, on phone.


    Which lead us to the next point: the miscommunication about the rules.


    I am not a native english speaker, neither any players from my guild, and I know that it's a unfortunately true for many hundreds players out there.
    Althought I speak, theres some language gaps that "trolls" us while trying to understand the rules, what is mandatory or not, or even what something really means. I would appreciate if @Remiem or any responsable for this contest throw some light on this questions.

    In an example:

    - 800 pixels is preferred, but it is mandatory? (Back to tapatalk problem)
    - "if I can't see the loot in chat or the dead boss, NO POINTS will be awarded, so no more loot on ground?
    - Insert the name of the map in every pic its preferred or it is now mandatory?
    - Notch borders on ss invalidates the picture?


    The differents interpretations of the rules are driving me crazy, every time someone appears with something that is now a brand new way to run event makes me and many other players confuse. So would be nice if all those gaps and miscellaneous question could be answered right from the source.

    (All those gaps can be intentional for making the contest hard to complete, but I ain't sure of that)

    Can we have more contact next time new rules come? I would not like to be kicked out of the event because of bad communication.






    Thanks in advance and also thanks for bringing the contest again this year.

    I think its quite simple
    1) No, not mandotary but it should be readable.
    2) Its “nor” so; ITS OK IF;
    Your SS include dead boss.
    Your SS include loot that taken from ground that shows in chatbox.
    Your SS include dead boss and loot that taken from ground that shows in chatbox.
    3) Yes Template Mandatory
    4) whats that

    actually at some points i agree with u,
    and yeah i bought vip on tapatalk because this event only
    i was posting 5 post only :
    week 1 i post 3 run, each run contain 8 screenshots = 8x3 = 24 pictures
    week 2 i post 1 run, which contain 9 screenshots
    and when i want to post second run for week 2 it says you reach limit for posting photos at tapatalk, you must buy the vip member.

    And the reason im using tapatalk because, im using mobile device. And i cant upload any picture from standard forum.
    everytime i want to upload using forum from browsers safari (my devices iphone 8+), i cant upload it.
    I already follow all the requirement, ive made 1 thread about why i cant post on forum
    resize the pict size, format picture, etc. But still cant upload. Therefore im using tapatalk, but since tapatalk has limit for uploading picture.

    Indeed mate, I don't know what I am going to do when my account hit the limit of postages in Tapatalk.
    It makes absolutely no sense paying this app, it's really expensive for us, the dollar it's crazy high now days.

    STS could help us solve that struggle. I face the same problem as you using the Forum on mobile.

    Any idea on the image upload limit?
    Is it a number per week/month

    @Remiem please take a look on it.

    Or if any player knows how to deal with this problem we would appreciate.
