    Hello everybody,

    We're really happy to host the first TV Series Contest since the creation of WTM! We all love movies but a lot of players watch series too, so before thinking about adding TV Series support to the community, let's make something smaller, a contest, to see if people might be interested in a game like WTM but for TV Series! If not, well then we'd have at least a contest and that's already good. So here are a few rules for this special contest!

    ***RULES***

    The limit of shots per series is 3. Since WTM is all about movies, we don't have a lot of TV series in the DB, so you will have to add by yourself the serie like you add movies on the website. You just have to check a new box in the form (see below). Only TV Series and TV Mini-series are allowed. Like the actual rules, we won't accept shots from seasons unreleased on DVD/Bluray or shots from TV Rips with the channel logo etc. Only from DVD/Bluray, like the actual rules for movies.

    ***ADD A TV SERIES TO THE WEBSITE***

    It's pretty simple. You can from now add TV series to the website just by checking a little box in the form. Let's take a example with the series "The Sopranos". First, you go to the IMDB MAIN page of the serie (not the IMDB page of the episode where you have taken the shot).



    You have now all the needed informations to add your TV Serie to WTM. You go to the upload section, choose contest "TV Series" (its not open yet so if you want to add your serie now, choose the "normal" upload).



    In the "choose tab", check if the series wasn't already added. If you can't find it, write nothing in the input and click directly on the "Search" button. That will tell you that your movie is not listed and you can create it! You now have to write the original title of the series, the language, the year when the show started, the imdb link, and check the checkbox "TV series ?". Don't forget to add alternatives titles too !



    And you are now ready to upload your shots for the contest!

    I don't know for the moment how many weeks the contest will be open, that depends of the number of shots and i hope you're gonna upload more than the previous record of 378 shots uploaded in a single contest (Pictures in Pictures)!

    I added a little icon for TV series in the search (just when you upload a shot) to see the difference between a movie and a serie. Also, after the beginning of the contest, we're going back to the roots, all series will be locked to upload (maybe one day...).

    So remember :

    1) Do not add TV series shots in NS, its a one time thing : a contest, so only in the contest
    2) Don't forget that you have to check the "TV Serie ?" box when adding a series.
    3) The IMDB link must be the link to the IMDB Main Page of the series, not a IMDB page of a episode from the series
    4) 3 shots per series max
    5) Time to solve : depends of how many shots you're gonna upload
    6) End of the contest, end of the TV series on WTM, all locked to upload
    7) Only shots from seasons which are released on DVD or Bluray will be allowed, no TV rips

    Enjoy this one time thing like i do, if you have any question, please ask here!

    what about TV-Movies, which a part of a TV-series, like 24: Redemption, which is the intro for the 7th season of 24

    24: Redemption IMDB http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0813980/
    24 IMDB http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0285331/

    at WTM are already some (V) or (TV) Movies which are pilots or sequels of tv-series, for example from Stargate:
    Stargate: IMDB Continuum http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0929629/
    WTM http://whatthemovie.com/movie/stargate_continuum
    Stargate: IMDB The Ark of Truth http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0942903/
    WTM http://whatthemovie.com/movie/stargate_the_ark_of_truth

    24: redemption, not OK to add it AS a TV serie and I can't allow your links for Stargate if its sequels. Only TV series & Mini-series, too more mess if i allow sequels, mini episode between seasons etc.

    I guess it's 2 uploads for Non-supporters and 3 for supporters as it usually is on contests?

    Yes! Also, one shot per serie per user, one user can't upload two or three shots from the same serie

    Does the contest include ALL SHOWS that are released on Blu-ray/DVD. How about (in search of better words) "realistic TV-Series". By that I mean shows like, Deadliest Catch, Mythbusters, Monster Garage and similar shows?

    another thing
    I think you going to delete a lot of shots in this contest
    because almost everyone download series

    we got more people who buy movies then series
  2.  permalink
    Yes, but downloading a TV episode in Blu-ray quality is pretty easy in 2011 :)

    edit: but it seems obvious that no one will do that and everybody will upload shots from real DVD.

    Well Lordmyst, thanks for your message, i know its not whattheseries, but please read my post and especially the first paragraph, this contest was requested for a long time and this is also a big test to see if people might be interested in, indeed, a whattheseries website, based on the same system used here.

    About the shots, i'm confident, i mean i know people don't buy a lot of series like movies but that's cool, if there are not a lot of shots, i will still be happy. (if they all respect the rules)

    got some new questions:

    1. you told Asmodai a series with 3 minutes episodes or less are not allowed. Which lengh a episode must have, to be allowed?

    2. There are several tv-series with different casts and stories, but offshoot of the same movie. Like Stargate SG1, Stargate Atlantis, Stargate Universe or Star Trek, Star Trek the Next Generation, Star Trek Deep Space Nine, Star Trek Voyager, Star Trek Enterprise. At imdb they count all as a different tv-series.
    The question: are there only 3 uploads for all different Star Gate series together, or there a 9 possible (3 for each series) ?

    1. lengh of 15min minimum

    2. If IMDb considers them as different TV Series, well thats the same here, you can add a shot from stargate atlantis, stargate SG-1, stargate univers...

    Guess I have to give it a miss. Not that I dont like this contest but in my country we get very minimum number of series that too only famous ones.

    Plenty of people buy TV series on DVD . . . this should be a lot of fun . . . the trick will be taking a not so obvious shot that will still tell enough of a story that people can figure out what series it is . . .

    Just a quick question: how will you be handling dupes? I know the chances of this happening are small since there is so much material to choose from, but every show has some iconic scenes that may be uploaded by more than one person. Will the dupe-uploader get a notification and a chance to upload another shot from that series, or is it: your dupe - your loss?

    It will be handled just as it always is: the dupe shot will be deleted and the user will get a Scruffy notification (assuming he/she turned that setting on).

    Please, please someone upload a Scruffy picture !
    There's probably lots of shots of him reading porn magazines ;)-

    Hey guys,
    I tried to upload a shot from a mini-serie but it's already in the database (some doofus tried to upload shots from this serie) and is of course locked.
    Now I can't upload shots from this one because it's already there and the "movie" is locked. And I can't create the serie as a "new movie" because the imdb-link is already in use. This is crappy! Help me!
