We have discussed this in the official GMC Jam chat and decided that we will be very disappointed if it's not "MILF".

Anyways,

the Summer Jam is go!

Well, according to my PHP script, this is a list of the 860 possible themes: http://dl.dropbox.co.../themelist.html

Who wants to use psychological theory to choose which of those it will be?

If we're allowed to offer prizes, I could chip in as well. I'm thinking banners for the top 3, a special web page (with reviews, comments, descriptions, screenshots, and downloads) for the top 2 games, and free hosting for that page for the winner for a year.

On what website?

Well, it would be on mine, because I'd be hosting it on my own server. It's the only way I can offer free hosting. So that would be at imperfectdesigns.dyndns.org.

I hope it will be about redesigning the terrible, terrible new website.

It would make sense... *I** -> GIMP

...I have been asked if we can change the start date of the jam by one day so that it starts on 00:01 FRIDAY 29th and finishes on 23:59 SUNDAY 31st. Opinions?

The current time (Saturday - Monday) is best for me. But there's a chance I'll only spend 2 days on my project anyway. So Friday - Sunday still works.

Thats a little impolite if you ask me.

You forgot "jump"

Anywho, for prizes, I can offer free code, graphics and design for two months, and a Let's Play of the winning game. Also, I'm for Friday-Sunday (kinda obvious, as I proposed it ).

Not unless it's spelled "jimp" now . The second letter must be an "i".

My thoughts on the actual post:

For those of you that are new to this (where have you been?)

I don't know myself

The theme will not be revealed until just before the start of the Jam to prevent any advantages

Define just before.

1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners will be chosen using the SSE method.

SSE?

Participants may not vote for their own game.

Dang it!

Games must be posted in the WIP/Games forums before the finish deadline for the Jam.

Why?

PRIZES

• Prizes will be as before... A special graphic/banner, bragging rights and (if your game is a themed game) the possibility of choosing the next Jam theme.
• [b]Community prizes will also be offered as members of the community contribute whatever the feel appropriate. EG: Coverage on their web site, custom graphics for the game, a video of the gameplay for YouTube... Whatever
• [b]There will be ABSOLUTELY NO MONETARY PRIZE. This is forbidden by the forum admins.

Will you be posting prizes that have been offered in this topic here?

PS: I have made some banners for the event, and if anyone else wants to contribute art, splash screens, banners etc... then please post and I will link to them here too!

One last thing Mark, will you make a poll for the Friday/Saturday thing?

Well, not after the start... . Usually a few minutes before but could be up to an hour depending on things (like my sense of time! Ask chance... )

SSE?

Games must be posted in the WIP/Games forums before the finish deadline for the Jam.

Why?

Because this is the GMC Jam and so games must be posted on the GMC.

Will you be posting prizes that have been offered in this topic here?

Most definitely. I need to recieve a confirmation PM first (IMP has done so and I will add his generous offer into the OP now).

Great! Mine are a bit iffy...

Is it necessary? Erm... Okay, just for you!

The difference in time (in seconds) between the start of the GMC Jam and the unveiling of the theme will be some positive real number $\varepsilon$.

Well, so far, your chances are looking good. "sharks" is four letters long, with an "i" as the second letter, so it ticks both boxes at the moment.
