General rules of the competition - 1st edition

All challenges will be published during the course of The Authors' Cup so that the participants can interact and add the most amount of points and climb to the top of the ranking. Each "challenge" will have different tasks with reward points that will be awarded only if the challenge is completed in its entirety.


Cup Challenges: you can accomplish at any time during the duration of the competition. They will be revealed at the start of The Authors' Cup.


Monthly challenges: that will only be valid within a specific month. They will be revealed at the start of each month.


Flash challenges: that could appear randomly at any time and may last only from hours to a few days. You will need to be quick to snatch them before they disappear!.


The challenges will appear on The Authors' Cup page, and to officially participate in them you should do the following:


* Choose the challenge you want, and click on "Participate."

* Execute the challenge's tasks in the given timeframe.

* Press the "Completed" button once you have completed the tasks of the challenge.


In the event that a participant had forgotten to press the "Completed" button at the end of the challenge, it will not be counted as a completed challenge, and therefore no points will be awarded. Similarly, if a user forgets to press the "Participate" button and performs the tasks of a challenge, it will not count as a "completed challenge" either.


The points won will be automatically added to the individual record of the participants, and at the same time, it will be reflected in the general ranking of The Authors' Cup. We will update the standings of the competition every Monday.


General rules
