    The purpose of IWT:
    The IWT is a fictional wrestling organization where competitors have bouts where the winner is determined by who writes the best promo. You can create your own gimmick, storylines, and even challenge for championships.

    Challenging for a Championship
    -If you wish to challenge for a championship then you can get in contact with the relevant champion (and the current champions can be found 'here.'
    -If there's more than one challenger for the championship, you can either have a #1 contenders match between the challengers, or the champion can choose to defend their title in a multi-man match. This is the champions choice.
    -Sometimes you will not always get a shot for the title you want (based on skill level, win/loss, current story lines) so the best thing you can do is fight in other matches and write segments to prove your worth.

    Clarity on who can challenge for a championship
    -Just because you post in the challenge a champion/contender match, it does NOT mean you will get the match. The champion can choose to wait until there are more challengers.
    -IF THE CHAMPION DOES NOT WANT TO ACCEPT YOUR OFFER, DO NOT PERSIST. YOU WILL LOSE YOUR RIGHT TO CHALLENGE FOR A CHAMPIONSHIP.
    -Every Champion has the right to choose the stipulation of their match as long as they are fair stipulations.
    -Challengers do NOT pick the stipulations, but they CAN suggest them.

    Title Holders
    -Each title holder has the right to choose what match they defend the title in, except on special Pay-Per-Views. (Ex. Elimination Chamber = Elimination Chamber match for some titles)
    -Title holders can defend their titles at any time.
    -If you lose your title, you have a strict ONE rematch clause. If you lose that, you go back to challenging to be the #1 contender like everyone else.

    Storylines
    When feuding with another competitor(s) you may want to hype up your match to give it more attention. More attention = more votes and will make champions want you to be their challenger. The best way to do this is arranging storylines such as (backstage promos, interviews, and anything you can think of). You can even attack your opponent before the match, but if you want to do that you MUST have your opponents permission to do so.

    -I may suggest a storyline for you, but that does not mean you have to go with it and if you also have trouble creating your own storyline you can contact me for help.

    Promo Matches
    -When you and your opponent are ready for a match, tag either myself or Jonathan and we will create the match thread for you.
    -Do not make match threads by yourself unless you are given permission by staff to do so.
    -A set of rules will be provided with each thread and you must abide by those rules.

    Voting
    -When the time limit for promos has finished a voting poll opened to the public and users will vote for the PROMOS they thought were the best.
    -The person with the most votes wins the match.
    -If there is suspected bias in an upcoming match by staff or an opponent your match is subject to be changed to a Special Guest Referee match(*see in "Match Types")
    -You MAY NOT vote for yourself in matches
    -You MAY tell people to vote in your match, but you MAY NOT tell them to specifically vote for you.
    -Violation of the two rules above results in instant suspension or banishment if you have been suspended twice already

    Voting Policy

    Creating multiple accounts to vote for yourself (or anyone else) OR VOTING FOR YOURSELF is NOT allowed. Anyone creating multiple accounts OR voting for themselves will have their votes reset to 0. Also, anyone on your IP (I.E. family members CANNOT vote for you.) This will result in a 3 week suspension for creating multiple accounts, or 2 week suspension for voting for yourself (1st violation only). Also, telling another user, whether it be in public, private message or any other form off contact (including offsite such as Skype) who to vote for is NOT ALLOWED. You will be instantly struck with a 2 week suspension for your 1st violation.

    You will only get 3 warnings before you are suspended from participating in this section for two weeks.
    If you get a second suspension, you will be suspended for 1 month.
    If you get a third suspension you will be fired (banned) from participating in the IWT.

    Reasons for suspensions and bans are breaking the basic rules below or going against voting policy.

    Spamming/Flamming/ Contacting WWEForum MODS

    If you spam or flame someone else's thread with content not in character form, YOU WILL BE SUSPENDED.
    If you harass any of the WWEForum Moderators (Crayo, Xanth, Hoss, etc.) complaining about something in this section, YOU WILL BE SUSPENDED.

    But I can!
    3 promos each, 24hr limit (or 48hr), 1 image link aloud per competitor excluding entrance trons, how does that sound?

    (Yeah it's what you came up with for they're match right now lol, but I am more creative than that)
     
  16. In fact, here few match suggestions for you:
    Ladder Match: 3 promos, 24 hr, Videos aloud
    Chairs Match: 4 promos, 36 hr (I would of put live streams aloud but I know much ppl don't know how to do that)
    TLC Match: 3 pieces that each count as a vote,
    1. 2 promos a piece, Media aloud, public vote
    2. Predictions contest
    3 (If tied). Another promo fight with anything legal, public vote

    Have you read the rules in full?: Not really, saw those colors and think that's a copy of Jonathan's rules thread.
    Do you accept the rules?: Sure thing.
     
  18. Just two quick things. I don't really get the Special Ref match. We vote there and the one with more votes receive a vote and the other two votes come from the other two individuals? And the second thing is. We had ladder matches where the match lasted a day but the poll started when the match began and ended when the match was over.
     
  19. You're correct about the 1st and i dont like that second match concept because it allows people to vote without reading promos
