GMC Jam NewsFlash!!!
VOTING ENDS ON SUNDAY 7th FEBRUARY
RESULTS WILL FOLLOW ON MONDAY 8th FEBRUARY
So be sure to get those votes in & remember that *this time* the rules about having to vote to win prizes are in effect.
(If you don't vote, you can't win).
Welcome to the official GMC Jam 21 Voting Topic!
This topic is where you can post your reviews and final votes in the GMCJam.
The rules, as always, are listed below for those new members that are participating for the first time and we recommend that you read them before making any posts.
DA JAM ZIP!

You don't have to use this, but it makes my life a lot easier if you do, so please consider adding the following template to your post, even if you wish to add mini-reviews and images for your chosen games.
My votes go to
1st Place - name of the game - author
2nd Place - name of the game - author
3rd Place - name of the game - author
Best Use Of Theme - author
Best Use of Handicap - author
You may vote for as many (or as few) games as you wish in order of preference, with 1 being the winner and all subsequent games being runners up, but please vote for at least three! The zip file that is created for the Jam comes with a game "randomiser" so that the order you play the games in does not depend on their title or creator, so we ask that you please use it!
Apart from the voting you are encouraged to post a mini-review of the winning game (and any others you feel deserve it) explaining what you liked/disliked and why you think it deserves to win... Remember, this is a Community Jam and so feedback from the community is all important! We want to know what you think! Apart from that there are a few more rules to stick to...
Voting will last at least 3 weeks!
Results will be posted next month on the *new* GMC forums!
This time, *if you want to place* - you *have to* vote!
Please post your votes FIRST, before any other text or images, and preferably using the above template.
Only ONE post per person (this is flexible but you MUST PM me for permission first). Any further conversation about a given game can be held in the Jam topic or in the topic of the game itself (if it has one). Any posts breaking this rule will be removed.
Your top three games MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY A SHORT REVIEW and posts with no reviews of at least the top three games will be considered at the time of counting.
If you are reviewing the games over the course of the voting period, use the button to add to your post, rather than post twice.Constructive criticism is fine, but comments like "This game sucks" will not be tolerated... so think before commenting! If your reviews are extensive or use images, please encase them in [spoiler] tags.
Please vote for at least YOUR TOP THREE GAMES, although you can vote for as many as you like (and every vote DOES count!).
NO talk of cheating in the Jam topics please. If anyone has any doubts about a post or a vote, then please REPORT the post or PM me with your thoughts and action will be taken accordingly.
For all votes, including the Best Ofs, be sure to include BOTH the game name AND the author name.
So that's it I think... Take your time to play as many games as possible, but don't feel pressured to play them all, and we shall see you all here again at result time to see who has the honour of being the Jam winner this time around!
Good luck to everybody and thank you all so much for participating in this most DocNogloffic of occasions!
Note that when these forums do eventually go down... you can continue your reviews/votes *here*...
