As always, some terms and conditions apply.
(Well, actually, there are only 6)
1. All score images (being
uploaded using the above form) should be no greater than 400 x 400 pixels in size (200 x 200 is the
ideal!) - as the text above advises, if the score image is too large, it can sometimes fail to
upload on our systems and as a result, your score will never appear on the board!
2. Any scores being submitted
that are over 14K will need to be accompanied by a quality video showing a NSD Powerball run of at least
98% of the score submitted. The video must have sound in order that we veryif its authenticity and
ensure that it is not a result of a counter error. The video should be emailed directly to: firstname.lastname@example.org
(and not uploaded using the above form!) and is necessary purely for verification purposes
(so please don't use a camera phone or low quality digital camera in these cases, the images are just
too poor and we reserve the right to refuse the contri.)
3. From Jan 1st 2005, any
score being submitted that ranks as one of the Top10 slots or which will be leading
the board as part of the monthly competitions for the highest scorer, must be accompanied by a short
video clip (MPEG, WMV, Quicktime etc.) depicting a score of at least 98% [of the value] of
the main score being submitted - eg. if your score submission was 14500 then we will also require a
short clip showing a zeroed counter followed by a score of 14500x.98=14210rpm
(or higher) - again, this video clip should be sent to email@example.com
(and you should look your best in the clip as we will be putting it on site for all the world to
see...fame and fortune will follow shortly after!)
Top100 League Video evidence required for scores over 14k.
Metal League Video evidence required for all submissions.
Strength Index Video evidence required for scores above 17k.
Ladies League Video evidence required for Top 10 positions.
Ladies Strength Index Video evidence required for all submissions.
Ladies Metal League Video evidence required for all submissions.
Dual Run Video evidence required for all submissions.
4. Prizes won't be
awarded to the same person twice. If your record score remains unbeaten the following month(s)
then the NSD Powerball prizes will go to the highest new entrant of that particular month. (If you
manage another record breaking run and hand the ball to a buddy for the photo we can't stop you,
but we'd hope you'd not be so dishonest...)
5. The judge's
ruling on whether we think someone has been acting the maggot with the scores that they
present to us is final. If we think that a particular entry smells a little funny then we
reserve the absolute right to ignore it.
6. If you
find yourself in the fortunate position of achieving a new World Record Score (and big
congratulations to you if you do!) then there are a couple of procedures that we must
follow to fully determine the accuracy of the claim. These will be mailed directly to
you once we receive the record breaking score but basically consist of a water tight
verification system to ensure that the name up on the top of the board is there because
the owner is the world's top NSD Powerballer...and not the world's top Photoshop user
...and that the ball they are using is operating correctly. Essentially, the main thing
we need you to do at time of submission is to get us a video clip of you in action with
a score of at least 98% of the [higher] score you have achieved earlier (better still
if you actually manage to capture the record itself in the clip!) and also to make sure
that the record score remains on the ball and isn't wiped before we have an opportunity
to inspect it at first hand!
The NSD Powerball Top 100
is becoming quite a popular spot and we take our position as board moderators very
seriously - we thank you for your co-operation on this!
