Hello and welcome to Survivor: KYM. Over the next few days, you wit outwit, outplay and outlast your competitors for the sweet prize of being the greatest KYM user ever. Now, read these rules carefully, breaking them will probably result in disqualification.
Every day, a new challenge will be posted in this thread. You’ll have 24 hours to complete it and send it in. If you do not complete the challenge you will be disqualified. Once you are disqualified, there is no way for you to win the prize.
Some challenges you’ll have to do all by your lonesome. Contact with your teammates is not recommended. After every individual challenge (besides today’s) at least one person will be eliminated.
Team challenges are the community building of this contest. Only one person has to submit the team’s entry in the challenge. If one or more team members are not participating, you will have to complete the challenge without them. They will be eliminated.
After every Team challenge, you will have to vote off someone from the “island”. You will send these votes in private messages to the ballot box. These messages will be kept super confidential. No one but me will ever have to know who you voted for, unless you tell them, but whatever. If there is a 2-way tie both players will be kicked off, if there is a 3-way tie or more, then everyone stays (though I may have to change that later in the game).
There are 3 types of immunities. You get them from doing either really well or poorly in challenges. They all only last one round of voting.
Complete Immunity makes you exempt from the next round of voting. You are not exempt for challenges, you can have immunity but still be eliminated by failing a challenge.
Half immunity makes every vote against you only count as half of a vote. If you lose the vote with Half Immunity that means your opponents really hate you.
Half De-mmunity makes every vote against you count as 1.5 of a vote. At that point you may or may not be totally fucked.
A lot of these challenges will involve images. Usually screencaps of what you’ve accomplished. I will say at the bottom of each challenge whether or not I’ll add your images to the CBC flickr page. If you don’t want your image added to the collection, shoot me over a PM and I won’t add it.
Well, that should cover everything. And if I have to change the rules for any reason, I will left you guys know.
Now, let’s get survivorin’!
