Hi, I'm Chester, a long-time lurker on this site who just registered.
Recently, I read a thread by System about him resigning from his job of sending messages, etc. From what I can understand, no such PMs have been sent since then, something that to me seems extremely inconvenient for people who submitted hacks or requested a name change and similar stuff. Something needs to be done.
So, that's why I've registered. I offer my services as the site's new... whatever System's position was called. "Site Assistant"?
I've been hacking ROMs in general for several years and got interested in SMW hacking about a year ago. I have experience with most aspects of SMW hacking and a lot of general knowledge, such as several different kinds of ASM. I've also been an admin on two medium sized boards, so I consider myself to be more than enough qualified for a job like this.
Oh, and did I mention that I have tons of free time to waste?
Sorry for the slight delay. Anyway, some changes have been made to the voting process this time around. We've scrapped the idea of having crowd and judge votes. The old crowd votes are gone and the judge votes are now open for everyone.
* In each category, you vote for up to three threads in the C3 forum. The first thread listed gets two points, the rest get one each .
* In categories marked with a star (*), you vote for people instead of threads.
* You are not allowed to vote for yourself or your own C3 entries.
* Voting ends at 5 PM, Sunday May 23.
* Votes shall be posted in this thread and according to the following format:
[category number]) [thread/user id 1] [thread/user id 2, if there is one] [thread/user id 3, if there is one]
In case you don't know how to find thread/user IDs:
Thread: Go to the C3 forum and hover over the thread link. The ID should appear at the end of the address shown in your browser's status bar.
User: Hover over the person's name in, for instance, a post sidebar. The ID should appear at the end of the address shown in your browser's status bar.
The categories are as follows:
1) Best in Show
2) Best C3 Attendee *
3) Best C3 Non-Attendee *
4) Best Newcomer *
5) Vision of the Future (Something you predict will alter the future of SMW hacking)
6) Best Non-SMW Item
7) Biggest Surprise
8) Short but Sweet
9) Honorary Mention (Something worth a trophy but doesn't fit in any other category)
10) Best Use of Floating Munchers
11) Best Finished Hack
12) Best Demo Hack
13) Best Joke Hack
14) Best Screenshots
15) Best Trailer
16) Best Level Design
17) Best Graphics
18) Most Creative
19) Most Impressive
20) Best Sprite
21) Best ASM Hack
22) Best Music
I am very saddened by this. If you knew what I have to put up with from angry members who had their hacks rejected. It's a tough job, but I like helping out. I only wish that people would at least recognize me for the work I do.
