 Monthly challenges will be similar to the original yearly MAL Anime Watching Challenge — it will have a time limit and thus would be considered a "limited time only" challenge with improved exclusive badge(s). The larger addition is that these types of challenges will be created by, well, none other than you guys! A lot of you have helped AWC out with tons of ideas and suggestions in general for challenges, making me believe that you enjoy giving your inputs and seeing them in result and be watched by other participants. That is why we figured we would make this monthly challenge more diverse with the member input function.

 The basics behind the monthly challenges are that specific month's themes. (Oh? Seems like summer is coming near, did we foresee someone creating a beach-themed exclusive challenge?) Also note, depending on how well this goes, it could be just another regular monthly challenge if lacked participation.


RULES
 
    Submissions
  1. Cannot list any specific anime.
     — Must be attainable for everyone, and since you never know what series someone has or has yet seen, no specific series are allowed.
     — In the same manner, it cannot require/include series with more than 26 episodes.

  2. Must be achievable within a month.
     — Think of how long it'd take an average person to watch and complete the series.

  3. Cannot use or require anything related to currently airing/ongoing or not yet aired anime types.

  4. Cannot require/include anything related to yaoi, yuri, or hentai.
     — Trying to make it available to all ages without getting too stingy.

  5. Cannot require anything that would give away the user's personal information.
     — Such as "the year you were born" or "the first letter of your real name" etc.

  6. If a requirement relates to TV Tropes, the trope is a guide and the series that you must watch does not have to be listed.
     — If it's not listed in the trope, you must list the episodes that the trope occurred in.


    While Participating
  7. Previously completed is not allowed.
     — Series previously started, but not finished, can't be used; anything started before official start date will not be allowed.
     — Airing can be used, but you must complete the series, so you can only turn-in the challenge after the series has finished airing.

  8. Any type is allowed, but must be equal to or longer than 15 minutes (total).
     — Unless otherwise stated.

  9. Official start date of the challenge will be the first day of the month.

  10. Cannot use the same entry twice.

  11. Official end date will be the last day of the month (EDT).
    Don't try cutting it so close as you risk not getting credit and due to timezone differences anything:
    ― Started a half day before the 1st will be allowed.
    ― Finished a half day after the last day of the month will be allowed.



THE BADGE
 A badge will be made for each monthly challenge stating "Completed the Month 20XX Challenge" along with an image that matches the winner's "theme." Coloring will be a bit more solid and bright to emphasize these limited time badges. No participation badges will be created due to the short time-span of the challenge. For example:

THE PROCESS
 A Submissions & Voting thread will be created each month (e.g. July is coming, so a thread called July Submissions will be created in June). Users interested in sending their submissions for the next monthly challenge will have till the 14th of each month to send them to @riho88riho via private message.

Note: That submission and votes will be closed on the last day of that month.


PICKING A WINNER
  • Every 15th of each month, the voting will be open with all submissions sent to @riho88riho via private message.

  • Every club member will be able to see all the submissions and vote for their favorite with the provided thread poll.
     — The polls for each month will always be the same: numbers from #1 to # assigned to the challenges. To vote for a specific challenge, just vote the number it is has been assigned to. Illustration below:

How the winner will be decided?
  1. Their submission, firstly, must comply with the rules of:
  2. Majority wins ― the submission with the most votes is the winner.
  3. In the event of a tie (or no one votes for anyone else), it'll be a subjective selection made by the staff by picking our personal favorite and (if they differ) having an outside third party make the final selection.
Note: There cannot be a consecutive winner, therefore the winner of the previous month must forfeit his/her chance to submit for the next month.


SUBMITTING YOUR PROPOSAL
  1. All submissions MUST be PMed to Riho88riho (any posted submissions in the thread will be deleted and ignored).
     — If you don't see your submission added after voting is open, please contact Riho on discord ASAP (@ Riho88riho#6371).

  2. All submissions will be accepted, but keep in mind that once the voting has started, any new submissions after will be at a disadvantage.

  3. Do not submit a bonus in your submission as all bonuses will be removed (regardless of the month).

  4. Your submission should consist of four (4) items.
     — All monthly challenges will have a requirement of "anime used must be equal to or longer than 15 minutes (total)".
     — Your items can't be restrictive, or require watching a specific anime. They should provide an equal pool of options for everyone, regardless of how much anime they have watched.
     — Make sure to read the Rules / Explanations for the rest.

    SUBMISSION FORM

    Theme: What does the month of XXX mean to you?
    Colors: These will be used on the badge; again, what colors do you think of when you think of that particular month?
    Requirements: This is the actual challenge. List (it doesn't have to be fancy) what the user must do in order to complete that month's challenge.
     Examples
     ― Watch 1 TV type series
     ― Watch a movie that has the word "rain" in the title


    Please copy and paste:
    [code][b]Theme:[/b]
    [b]Colors:[/b]
    [b]Requirements:[/b]
    
    [/code]
    PM Riho88riho your submission
    Please make sure to leave the [code] tags as this will allow to just copy and paste your submission rather than having to basically re-create it.
