MTS2:Creator Guidelines/Featured Content Criteria
This page was last modified 29 May 2010
|Featured Content Criteria|
|The very fact that your content has been accepted on MTS proves that it is good work, as MTS has some of the most stringent quality control in the Sims community. MTS prides itself on having the best content from the best creators. Certain amazing uploads can be featured by our moderators, highlighting them on the front page and Downloads area.
These items generally follow the following standards, our criteria for featuring content:
Featuring of content is solely up to moderator discretion. If you have uploaded something that you think is very nice and featured quality (or if you see an item by another member you think should be featured) but it is not featured, please do not take offense. Again, the fact that your upload is here means that it is good. Campaigning for your work (or any creator's work) to be featured won't get it featured any quicker - only hard work, effort, and paying attention to the above criteria, especially the "wow factor" will do that.
Utilize our Creator Feedback forum to get help in improving the quality and presentation of your uploads, pay attention to suggestions and feedback you are given in your download threads (especially comments by moderators relating to the Creator Guidelines), and make your next upload that much better.
|How Items Become Featured|
|When a moderator sees an item that they think has all of the above criteria, especially the "wow!" factor, we have a private moderator forum where we can nominate an item for featured. Then, other moderators can comment on what they think - whether they believe it's worthy of being featured or not. Items are also tested in-game to make sure they look as good as they do in the pics and work as advertised without any major flaws before being featured. Once we come to a consensus on whether an item should be featured, it's either featured then, or not - sometimes we will put a nomination aside until the creator fixes certain issues, and sometimes we decide that an item is not worthy of featuring.
We do not have an area for users to nominate content for featured, and we ask that you please do not post "this should be featured!" type comments in others' download threads (and especially not your own!). Again, featuring is solely up to moderator discretion.
