I expected more hype for the end of this! :P

 

Well, just here to tell you guys that it's been my absolute pleasure to host the last 5 Jams, but you'll be seeing a different face next to the OP for jam 18.

 

It's a lot of fun to host the jam, but also pretty time consuming, and I feel that I should hand over the reins to someone else for a while to give the jam the best chance to flourish.

 

I'll still be entering games and drumming up hype :lol:

 

Your new jam overlord will be dadio with a little help from a bunch of the moderating staff. Enjoy! :P

So, the next topic title will be "Da Amassin' GMC Jem 18 Discussion Topic", won't it?
And you people will make a modification in forum software so that emoticons can be used in topic titles, too? :bunny:
Sure things will be interesting the next time around. :whistling:

(aside from that: congratulations, dadio, hope you'll handle the next Jam well ;) )

Aha! Now I guess we know who will really be in charge, while Dadio's puppet government gives his trademark smile to the media! It's a conspiracy! Illuminati confirmed! Half life 3 confirmed...

Seriously though, congrats to Dadio! Dealing with us for a month-and-a-half four times a year can't be easy, so burnout is completely understandable. Not to mention getting the dates right on the OP.

Two and a half years of game development taught me the joy of making something unique and unconventional. It is not good enough to make a game fun when there are way too many other freeware games that make fun their selling point.

Sorry I was a bit late with this, and you was all so quick with the response!

 

Anyway, here's the top 5 Jammers (excluding myself) and the charities/organisations they chose to receive $30.

 

 

The Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) is an American broadcast television program distributor. The non-profit public broadcaster has 354 member television stations, many of which are owned by educational institutions or by non-profit groups affiliated with a local school or university or by state-government owned or related entities.
 
Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organisation that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters and exclusion from healthcare. MSF offers assistance to people based on need, irrespective of race, religion, gender or political affiliation.
Our actions are guided by medical ethics and the principles of neutrality and impartiality.
 
BRACE is a registered charity that funds research into Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
Our role is to help medical science understand the causes of dementia, find ways of diagnosing it earlier and more accurately, and develop more effective treatments. Ultimately, we want to help science beat dementia.
 
World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the root causes of poverty and injustice.
Working in nearly 100 countries around the world, we serve all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender.
 
ChildFund exists to help deprived, excluded and vulnerable children have the capacity to improve their lives and the opportunity to become young adults, parents and leaders who bring lasting and positive change in their communities. We promote societies whose individuals and institutions participate in valuing, protecting and advancing the worth and rights of children.
 
 
With the exception of GameDevDan's. BRACE got $60 because their site is buggy, but it's OK; my grandfather and first namesake, Jack, died with alzheimers and I know it can leave someone very confused and scared constantly, so every little that can help research into it is a good thing. So consider that my own donation rather than giving Dan favour over the rest of you! :P

Something wrong with the current one? Some results seem odd?

To discuss voting systems we need to have some problem to address in the first place. :whistling:

All right; I feel the current voting system doesn't favor MY entries enough. I mean, I'm only hovering around 10th place for the last four jams, can't we address that somehow?

My calendar senses tell me it'll be from 25th to 27th April. Thankfully, this time we don't have weekend on the months border, so "last weekend in a month" rule is unambiguous here.

It's very nicely placed too. I was worried it would get in the way of finals, but my finals are the first full week of May, so I'll have a whole week after the Jam to study.
