The competition is officially over. We got a grand total of 8 entries this time! (The last one had 7)

Penguinboy and I will try to get on these as soon as possible. Good luck!

(It's now 9 entries) -- Grim

I'm looking through/judging/writing up the compo stuffs now. Expect results 'late' later today if not early tomorrow.

Keep watch of your PM boxes should I have any problems -- Grim

One of those eight is mine.

One of those eight isn't mine.

Plus the rest. I just didn't have the inspiration to make anything.

I hope Tetsu0 is gonna win :D

Can't wait for the next compo though ( I mostly didn't participate because I don't like this "compo from a layout" and I didn't really had time either)
Commented 11 years ago2009-07-20 06:29:47 UTC Comment #99297
I hope mine is there. I will not win, I am just not experienced enough at mapping then you lot. Did it for the fun and maybe if i'm lucky I may get a review, so I can improve!

My map is done, but sitting on my computer at work that doesn't have internet capabilities. It's been done since Friday. Coulda been a 9th entry :(

Then lets do the full monty. Oh, btw I never enter a compo before about when can I expect the results?
Commented 11 years ago2009-07-21 09:16:13 UTC Comment #99304
To the Judges: sorry about that damn wad issue, and if you need help with getting thru the level, check the "official" compo 27 page. That's where everyone else is going for help.

Sorry i didnt have time to make the directions clear and fix the bugs, but i guess it is what it is. I'm proud of the progress i made just in the last 5 days of the compo.

If you wish to play the completed version, keep your eyes on the map in the vault. I'm going to link to another build of the map.

@ Striker - "I hope Tetsu0 is gonna win :D"
XD Thanks for the good wishes! Makes me feel pretty good to release a map people actually enjoy!

@ Moab - The judges have made a habit of giving a short little review to all the entrants! I'm sure you'll get one.

Results? Oh lawd. Dunno about Grim but I have literally ZERO free time to judge the results (which takes a fair amount of time). Uni is eating my time like nothing else. I got home from uni at 1AM the other day D:

Rest assured that we haven't forgotten about you guys but Grim is busy starting uni and I'm busy finishing it. I might see if I can employ Sir Daubster to do the write-ups.
Commented 11 years ago2009-08-26 19:20:31 UTC Comment #99331
Perhaps it would be better to hand the judging to someone else, then? I'm sorry to hear that you don't have time to judge the competition, but it's been well over a month now and it doesn't seem like you'll get any spare time for a long, long time.
If you haven't even looked at the entries, then turning it over to someone else could only help speed things up.
Commented 11 years ago2009-08-26 21:26:07 UTC Comment #99332
1am!?! Are you fucking kidding me?? That better nto happen to me when i go to Uni next year, you poor bugger. That really sucks big time but study does come first, perhaps WC is right, if you feel overwhelmed by your study :\

On the contrary... Nobody's getting paid for this... So it's up to free will and that's it. I would just would like a simple status update rather than sit around bitching and moaning about it not getting done :-P
Commented 11 years ago2009-08-27 01:47:48 UTC Comment #99335
It sets a bad precedent when things take this long. I couldn't care less if nobody's getting paid, I didn't plan on waiting more than a month and a half to see who won.

A month and a half of being swamped with studies should also be a month and a half to realize that it's time to hand judgment over to someone who has more free time.
Commented 11 years ago2009-08-27 05:25:38 UTC Comment #99336

Commented 11 years ago2009-10-08 15:58:02 UTC Comment #99408
Votes to make it easier for the Judges. They can take the time to play all the maps, or just look at the votes.
Commented 11 years ago2009-10-08 16:46:50 UTC Comment #99409
I'm all for community voting to determine the winner as long as the contestants remain anonymous to ensure voting for the best map, and not the best mapper.

The problem with community voting, though, is that almost nobody will play all of the entries. Some entries might not get any plays at all.
Commented 11 years ago2009-10-08 20:10:39 UTC Comment #99410
Yes, I don't really like the idea of community voting. There's too much bias involved and it's too easy to 'rig' the results, especially when we have a small user base.
Commented 11 years ago2009-10-09 01:55:50 UTC Comment #99411
I think prehaps the community in general should be able to have their say (vote, mini-review(?)), but judges maintain the current format. IE so theres two sets of results, the communtity in general and the judges. That way it's easy to spot spamvoting and bias, too.

I haven't thought about how practical this is, but it's what I came up with.
Commented 11 years ago2009-10-09 13:05:43 UTC Comment #99412
Darkie:

It's definitely a good idea to have the site staff judge entries, while at the same time giving the community the possibility to vote/review the maps as well.

The problem, as you stated, is practicality of such a method, although it could be done. We just must put an end to this practice of not posting the entries until the compo judges review them.
Commented 11 years ago2009-10-09 19:57:03 UTC Comment #99413
It might be an idea to have a pass-along scheme to help streamline entries. I will admit it requires some communication coordination.

Each compo has two judges. There are some users who have judged other compos. Why not have two 'lead judges' who are responsible for judging and posting the results, and 'sub judges' who have access to downloading the compo maps and judging them themselves. If one of the 'lead judges' has difficulty judging the maps and/or doesn't have enough time to write full reviews on them, then they can pull reviews and opinions from the 'sub judges'.
Commented 11 years ago2009-10-09 22:41:16 UTC Comment #99414
Nominating judges from the general community is something I've definitely thought of. We would still need an admin or mod or two to oversee it, but by involving more people who didn't participate in the actual compo I think we could easily speed up the whole process.

Commented 11 years ago2009-10-10 22:58:59 UTC Comment #99416
This might be kinda practical...

The Compo Mod setup.

For future competitions, use a game_text entity to display the map's name and author for a few seconds at the beginning of the map. The significance of this is that all the maps would be lined up and be playable in one run in a single mod. The maps will be named entry01 to entry50. The plain name and number is in respect to a chain-command setup, essentially creating a "Next" or "Previous" key, or maybe just a next button... dunno. The template would be easy as pie to make, no worries there. Plus the pack could be downloaded, easily installed and ran assuring everyone gets a fair look. Simple and easy for judges and members to swiftly look through the maps. It's all about presentation.

If that sounds like its too much, just post a link to each of the maps and hope everyone properly installs them all and gives each one a look.

Don't have to take this seriously, just an off-idea.
