2022 CGC Grading Contest Season 1 Summer Edition (#3) Sign-up Thread

This is the official sign-up thread for the Summer Edition grading contest.  You will need to post in the thread to enter, and the deadline is July 21st.  The maximum amount of participants is 175  I will give board members who post regularly first chance to enter.  If we have not reached the limit by then, I will use an E-mail Drip Campaign to send a PM to every board member that has 50 posts or more, and invite them to join.  There is no way to filter out the people who have already entered so, you will get a PM anyways.  I haven't tested the Drip Campaign in this fashion but, I am confident it will work.  If you don't intend on playing until the end, don't sign up.

Here are the rules.  Please read them carefully.

There will be 4 rounds with 5 books per round.  After the deadline for the signup thread has ended, I will start a new thread in the hey buddy can you spare a grade section, scans of the first 5 books will be posted, and I will start a PM thread between myself and each participant.  Be sure to use THIS PM thread to submit your grades every round. I will post a list for the books in the thread where the books are posted for each round.   Please copy and paste that list into our PM, and add the grades for each book.  Only CGC grades (numerical) will be accepted.  Non CGC grades like fine+ or Very fine- will not be accepted.  Be sure to follow the threads that the books are posted in.  This is the only way you will know when the next round starts.  There will be no update when the next round begins sent to our PM thread.  All of the threads with the books and the results will be posted in the hey buddy can you spare a grade section. 

You will have 4 days to get your grades in.  After I record your grades, I will reply to the PM thread so you know that your grades have been recorded.  Only grades from .5 to 9.8 will be accepted.  Grades of 9.9 and 10.0 that are received, will be recorded as a 9.8 Please do not bump the PM for any reason other than submitting your grades.  Nobody will be allowed to change their grades.  Do not discuss your grades with others in the thread until the round is closed.  Also, please do not ask any questions about the books publicly or privately (by sending me a PM) .  If I am provided any special notes from CGC, I will share them in the thread.  If anyone fails to submit their grades for a round, or do not submit grades for all of the books in a round, their participation in the contest will be terminated.  You will be able to participate in the next contest.

After the 4 days are up and the round is closed, I will post scans of the books in CGC holders to reveal their grades, and include the graders notes for the books.  A new thread will be started to show the results of each participant.   The results thread will most likely be started the next day.   There will be a new thread started for the next round.   This thread will most likely be started within an hour after the prior round has ended.       

0 points is the best score one can achieve.  1 point will be added to your score for each grade that is higher or lower than the actual grade.    If the actual grade for the book is 5.0 and you guess 4.0, your score for that book is 2.  If the actual grade for the book is 5.0 and you guess 6.0, your score for that book is 2.  If the actual grade for the book is 5.0 and you guess 5.0, your score for that book is 0.

CGC will be awarding $500 for 1st place, $250 for 2nd place and $100 for 3rd place.
