I am contemplating on developing a website, but before I get completely invested in it, I'd like to know how people like the idea and if they're interested. The nature of the site makes it unusable if there are only 10 or so active users.
It is a game development competition site that focuses on short and frequent jams. Think like those five minute competitions in the challenges forum. Every two weeks or so, the site gives a theme and some randomized time (somewhere around 30 minutes to 7 hours) to make a game. The winner is voted for and they get digital badges, candy, assorted fruits, etc. Every eight weeks or so there will be a bigger competition that lasts 48 hours, hopefully not clashing with other big gamedev competitions.
So what I ask is: would you join this community and participate in the competitions? How often would you be able to compete? Will you be able to play all the entries? If nobody is interested in the idea, it won't work and it isn't worth following through with.
