Champion FAQ Bounties

#1SBAllen(Admin)Posted 1/28/2013 12:25:41 PM
The first person to submit a guide for each Champion that meets the requirements (see below) wins the bounty for that Champion. If the guide is plain text, you get $5. If you use formatting, you get $10. This money is in the form of an Amazon.com gift card. If you need more information about formatting, check the Help section of the site. We will have an actual editor ready to help people make formatted guides soon, but it's not ready quite yet. Also I just want to mention that generally, I only do payouts for contributors in lump batches once or twice a month, so it might take a couple weeks to get your payment. Rest assured, you WILL get it. If there's an urgent rush and you need the gift card sooner than I get it to you, just PM me and I'll get it to you more quickly.

So for criteria, here's a laundry list created with help from this board itself. Your guide doesn't have to be ordered this way and doesn't necessarily have to cover every single thing on the list, but you should cover as much of it as you can.

-Overview of Champion
-Pre-Game Setup
--Runes
--Masteries
-Skills and Leveling
-Item Builds
-Lane Matchups
-Strategies/Advice
--Early Game
--Mid Game
--Late Game
--Adapting to the Unexpected

Now I've mentioned more than once that I am not a pro at this game. My approval of your guide does NOT mean you win and get the money. After I post your guide, I'll be coming to this board and asking the users if they feel that it's up-to-date and relevant. This process does NOT take any personal bias about how to play the Champion into account, only that the guide applies to the current version of the game. If someone doesn't like your strategies, they are always welcome to create their own guide, after all.

I've been told that this is an excellent example guide aside from being out-of-date: http://www.gamefaqs.com/pc/954437-league-of-legends/faqs/60876

As I said, we'll only be paying the first person to submit a complete guide. Having said that, don't let that discourage you from submitting your own guide afterwards. We can host more than one FAQ per Champion and your guide might end up being more useful than the winning guide.

The final thing is that we won't allow the same person to claim more than two bounties per week. The reason for this is that we want to encourage variety in the content rather than cookie cutter guides by the same author for every Champion. It's also because we aren't doing this for people to be greedy but rather to encourage everyone to participate. While you're welcome to submit guides for all the characters, we'll only pay you for the first two.

Below you'll find a list of the Champions whose bounties have already been claimed as of the time of this post. We will not be paying anyone who writes a guide for any of these Champions (though you're always still welcome to submit one!)

Akali
Amumu
Annie
Ashe
Caitlyn
Diana

Subsequent posts in this topic will mention new guides that we post where I'll ask for feedback about whether or not the guide contains full coverage. Posts will also be routinely posted as bounties are claimed to keep the completed list up-to-date.

To clarify since I was asked, we will currently accept guides for ANY Champion that isn't on the list of claimed bounties, A through Z.

For consideration, Taric: http://www.gamefaqs.com/pc/954437-league-of-legends/faqs/65936

We've also launched a beta Formatted FAQ Editor that you can try out to make Formatted FAQs more easily. You can find the basic info here: http://www.gamefaqs.com/features/help/entry.html?cat=59

This editor is still in early beta so not everything's working perfectly yet, but you should be able to create and submit a full guide using it easily enough.

For consideration:

Sejuani: http://www.gamefaqs.com/pc/954437-league-of-legends/faqs/66202

Tristana has been considered and is currently not going to be accepted as bounty-worthy. There have been numerous complaints that the quality isn't up to par with the other recent guides. The author is welcome to continue improving the guide and try again, but the bounty is considered open for anyone else for now.

For consideration:

Kha'Zix: http://www.gamefaqs.com/pc/954437-league-of-legends/faqs/66259
Varus: http://www.gamefaqs.com/pc/954437-league-of-legends/faqs/66260

I haven't heard any problems with the Sejuani guide so unless I hear anything compelling before Monday I'll be considering that one complete. Also if I don't hear any problems with the two above by Monday I'll likely consider them complete as well.

Sent a PM to everyone who should be awaiting a bounty asking which email address to send it to. Will send the bounties out once I get responses.
