|Jate vs Skate|
|Welcome to jatevskate! This community is an everything community. We do nomminations, icontests, fics, vids and soundtracks. There is however, a twist. After each round of Jate or Skate battling, the top three from each contest will face each other in a Jate vs Skate showdown. At the end there will be a winner from one pairing and for that week, they are named the "Perfect Pair". That is your gift other then bragging rights. So I hope you have fun and be fair!|
|Ok since each different challenge will have their specified rules these are just the rules that apply to every challenge.|
1. Be fair. Don't vote for them just because you know them! We will know if you do because we will search, if it's not deserved we will make sure you are reprimanded.
2. In EVERY CHALLENGE you must vote for the quality of the art. We want it to be a fair game. We don't want you voting for them just because it's your pairing.
3. For each pairing there is one mod. Contact those mods with questions on the challeges.
4. You can post your stuff in other places for every competition except for the icontests, bacause there you remain anonymous, BUT you have you have the base post here, and link all the other postings to the one in this community.
5. Before you join you MUST comment on one of the two posts that ask you your pairing. Skate Jate
|Since we want to be as clear as possible with all the competitions going on here we're going to make a clor code for you to use when your entering a challenge that you have to post an entry. We will also use it to differenciate between the competitions, so then all you have to do is keep an eye out for your color. The colors are as follows:|
Fics : #721BA8 Soundtracks and Vids : #EDFF7A and #68B356
Icontests : #1260CC Nomminations : #FF0A54
|Fics||Soundtracks and Videos|
|The fic competition will probably be the most different from every single other competition. In the fic competition you won't know your rules until the challenge is posted. In the challenge you will get something to inspire you for what you want to write, it can be a song, prompt or even a rating and you can just create any story around it. Fics are also competitions where you will actually post to the community. Each post will be moderated to make sure they followed all of the rules.
Posting: To post your fics you can refer to the fic rules post. Remember to put it behind an LJ-cut no matter the length. There will also be special tagging that you will have to do and your fic will not be accepted unless you have the tags. The tags will be The Pairing : The Competition : The Round : Your Username : Title of Fic. So if I was posting for skate, in the fics catagory, for the first round, and my fic was called The Sinners, my tags would read: Skate : Fics : Round 1 : Rateth : The Sinners.
Voting: Voting for fics will also be a little different then the rest of the competitions. After the period of time that we give you, we will compile a list of links to all the fics. The voting will take place on that post. People will say which 3, maybe more depending on the entries, are their favorites. The votes will be counted and the results will be presented.
Schedule: The schedule for the fic competition will be: 2 months - For Writing and 1 month - For Voting (head to head competition included)
|The Soundtrack and Videos competition will be posted in the same post, but you will not have to enter both. Each competition will be different, you might have to use only certain episodes, or maybe you have to use a song. Or for the soundtracks, maybe we'll give you a picture and you have to make a soundtrack around the picture, maybe you'll get a theme. You won't know until it happens. This is a competition where you can post on the community. Posts will be moderated to make sure that you followed the rules correctly.|
Posting: To post your videos or soundtracks you can refer to the Video and Soundtracks rules post. For the Videos you have to put the video behind the cut, and for Soundtracks you have to put the tracklist behind a cut. There will be special tagging when posting the entries. The tags will be The Pairing : The Competition : The Round : Your Username : Title of Soundtrack or Vids. So if I was posting for skate in the vids catagory, for the first round and the vid was called Haters, my tags would read: Skate : Videos : Round 1 : Rateth : Haters.
Voting: Voting for the Videos and Soundtracks will be quiet like the voting for the fics. After the period of time that we give you, we will compile links to all the Videos and Soundtracks in one post. People will say which three, maybe more or less depending on the entries, are their favorites. The votes will be counted and the results will be presented.
Schedule: The schedule for the Soundtrack and Video competition will be : 1 month - For creating your masterpieces and 2 weeks - For Voting (head to head competition inclueded)

|The icontest competition will go pretty much the same as any other icontest. You will not know the rules of the challenge until you actually get to the challenge. This is the ONLY challenge that you will respond to a post to enter your icons, not actually post. Comments on that post will be screened.
Posting: Refer to the icontests rules post for more info.
Voting: Voting for icontests is like any other icontest community. We will put them all in one post and you will comment with the icons that are your top three, maybe more or less depending on how many icons there are.
Schedule: The schedule for the icontest competition will be: EVERY OTHER week - Working on the icons 4 days - Voting (head to head competition included)
|The nominations competition will be much like all the other nominations communities you see out there. We won't give you the actual things your nominating for until the contest just incase we want to do something special. For nominations you will be posting to the community. Each post will be moderated to make sure that you followed the rules correctly.|
Posting: To post your nominations refer to the nominations rules post . You will have to put the icons behind the cut, or else they won't be accepted. There will be special tagging when posting the entries. The tags will be The Pairing : The Competition : The Round : Your Username. So if I was posting for skate in the nominations catagory, for the first round, my tags would read: Skate : Nominations : Round 1 : Rateth.
Voting: Voting for the Nominations will be quiet like the voting for the Icontests. After the period of time that we give you, we will compile the icons and you will vote. People will say which three, maybe more or less depending on the entries, are their favorites. The votes will be counted and the results will be presented.
