    http://www.escforums.com/t8484/ have been updated regarding semi final qualifiers and sanctions for not voting in semi finals:

    In the semifinal: it will not advance to the final (if they end up in the top 12) and will forfeit their place (i.e. the 13th place country will qualify, then 14th place and so on...);

This warning shall remain against the country until the next edition, and will only be removed from their "record" if they vote in the Semi final during the following edition. The removal of the warning will mean that it no longer counts towards the country's cumulative total of sanctions.
    - If the country fails to vote in two consecutive Semi finals (i.e. editions), this warning will turn in to a permanent sanction and the country will have to sit out the next edition (see the "second offence" sanction above). However, in terms of the cumulative total of sanctions, this will count as one offence overall.

    Added further clarification to a couple of rules in the entries section, and added the following rule:

    VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE

    It has never actually been specified in the rules, but please refrain from announcing the artist/group that you will be using in the next edition until after the current edition is over. You can provide hints, but please refrain from posting the actual name before the start of the NF week.

    Thanks

    Added the below to the rules:

    Basically, don't reveal any confirmed NF songs or confirmed artists/groups until the NF period has begun.

    Update the main contest rules with rules from the Guidelines for song selection thread in the Green Room:

    Quote Originally Posted by WorldVision

    14. If a jury decides to hold a public NF, the results of the NF must be withheld from public view until after the official show has begun. The most that can be revealed is a list of points received, without specifying which entry received the points. Violations may result in either a warning or a sanction.
    15. Only votes received by PM may be included in your NF results - votes cast in the forum threads cannot be used.
    16. Only votes from WorldVision members may be accepted for NFs.
    17. Juries may reveal to the public the participants in their NF (for both public and private selections) and the candidates for internal selections. Photos, song titles and artist names can be revealed. However, please refrain from revealing the winner of the selection process until the official show has begun.
    18. For internal selections, the most you can reveal publically is the artist. The song must not be revealed to the public under any circumstances. You can also use your country's thread in the Green Room to post hints and clues to the artist if you want to have a little more fun with the public during the NF phase.
    19. After you have sent your entry and back-up to the show host, please don't forget to send the NF full results to the mods in either Excel format or via a Scorewiz link.

    Re: News / Updates / Announcements

    Cleared up the information regarding private threads (which no longer exist) and added the following new rule regarding temporary withdrawals from the contest:

If you follow this procedure, no sanction will be applied. However, if you miss 2 or more consecutive decisions for any reason at all, please be aware that sanctions will be applied to you according to the sanctions rules below.

    Updated the rules in the voting section following the results of the PQ poll:

    Quote Originally Posted by WorldVision

In the case of refusal, this right passes to the country in second place, then third place, and so on. If the host country is not the winner of the previous edition, they will not have an automatic PQ spot in the final and will instead participate in the semi-finals.
    6. The winning country is automatically pre-qualified (PQ) for the next edition's final. In the running order for the semi-finals of the next edition, the previous winner will be assigned a semi-final in which they must vote. Failure to vote may result in a warning/sanction.
