If you're a contributor on Layer3 interested in completing your first Contest or Project, please read the community guidelines below.
All submissions must be original.
Any duplicate, copied, or plagiarized submission in a contest or project will be deleted/rejected immediately.
Plagiarism is not allowed.
Derivative content or similar explanations are understandable to some extent, but blatant plagiarism will not be counted as a valid entry.
You will be warned by a CM if your contest or project was found to be plagiarized. That submission will be deleted and marked as invalid.
If you plagiarize a second time, you will be banned from submitting another contest or project via Layer3.
Make it relevant.
Only submit the relevant links mentioned in the contest description — any irrelevant or spam links will be treated as invalid entries, and repeated attempts of submitting spam or irrelevant links will result in a permanent ban.
In writing submissions for contests that require a Google doc to be submitted, make sure you click on the ‘Change to anyone with the link’ so that the reviewers can go through your submission.
If you’ve used a quote/data/reference from an external source in any type of submission (mostly writing contests), make sure that you’ve mentioned and properly cited it.
Adhere to task guidelines & instructions.
Read the instructions correctly. If you fail to adhere to the task instructions, your submission will be counted as invalid.
Any attempts of using a script and/or bot on Layer3 to gain an unfair advantage against other users will be taken very seriously, and that user will be immediately banned from using the platform.
For translation-related tasks:
Most contests and projects are to be attempted in English unless specified otherwise.
In the case of translation contests, do not copy and paste the entire document through Google Translate, we reward high-quality work and there’s no first come first serve basis in such contests, so take your time to deliver quality content!
Layer3 does not select winners.
We partner with a lot of communities and every community has a different standard of judging submissions. We do not have the final say on any submission. In case of any inconsistency, you can contact the Layer3 team under the #help section on Discord.
You can’t change your submission link after you’ve entered the contest, so make sure you do it carefully!
In cases of IRL contests (e.g. taking a photo of a logo in front of an IRL landmark), please don’t upload digitally edited pictures, as we can differentiate between the real and fake ones. Digitally manipulated submissions will be immediately disqualified.
Repeated violations from any of the above guidelines would result in us banning your address, so make sure you follow the rules while earning crypto ;)
