Crap Tournament 7 is now open for registration: http://retrocontests.herokuapp.com/#/
Participants will be prompted to sign up for the site before they can register for the tournament.
The  Crap Tournament is a yearly MAME competition where all the titles are  selected based on their relative obscurity or overall lousiness.
Every  year brings in new pure crap and some hidden gems - you'll play some of  the worst games ever made, and discover some amazing titles you never  would've played without the tournament.
The games are hilarious, but the competition is fierce. Think you're a true gamer? Come prove it in the Crap Arena.
Dates for the Contest:
The tournament will last 10 days, stretching over 2 weekends, beginning May 1st and ending May 10th.
Number of Games
The  tournament will consist of 12 games, none of which will be announced  until moments before the tournament start.  Of these 12 games, 10 will  be announced at the start of the tournament, while the remaining 2 will  only be announced at the beginning of the closing weekend (May 8th).   Proper game settings will be detailed for each title. 
Scoring Format
The  scoring format is simple: 12 points for first on any given title, 11  points for 2nd,... 1 point for 12th, and points are only awarded for  places 1 through 12.  Thus, a prefect score for this tournament would be  144, regardless of the number of participants, and it's entirely  possible to accumulate 0 points despite submitting a score for every  game.  In other words, the competition will be rough, and the winner  will be the player who is the best all around crapper.
Once  the tournament officially starts, an easy submission process, live  updating standings for each game, and an overall leader board will  become visible for all registered participants.
As part of the  submission process participants will have the option to attach an inp or  link to a Twitch stream highlight.  Either option is fine, and neither  will be mandated unless the submission claims a 1st place.  This will  allow participants to easily update the scoreboard with their  submissions as often as possible without getting bogged down making  Twitch highlights for every score they obtain, but still maintain some  element of interactivity on the scoreboard itself as 1st place scores  begin to change hands.
To be clear: streaming and creating Twitch  highlights is not a requirement, recording inps is not a requirement,  but 1st place score submissions will not be accepted without one of the  two. (For me personally, recording and uploading inps is not in any way a  nuisance, and I plan on doing so for every sore I submit.  Making  Twitch highlights, on the other hand, is a little time consuming and I  only plan to do so for scores I don't intend to best later on in the  contest.)
All MAME versions 106 and later are legal for this  contest (just be sure to specify which version was used when uploading  inps), and if a player somehow actually has cab access to one of the  crap titles they are of course welcome to play on the original hardware.
Get busy crappin' or get busy dyin'
