I can see why the parody contest might not be a good idea. I'm in favor of another 1-10 contest (just thought of the idea yesterday), BoE got some decent scenarios out of that, and its easy. I think I know why the Pearl contest didn't go well, but I think we should run something easier before attempting it again. Plus, the 1-10 should be pretty new to most, as most of the people around today, including myself, weren't around for the original 1-10.

(I agree with Kel that requiring multiple entries is a bad idea, FYI)

With the 8th contest underway, it might be a bit early, but I've noticed usually there's a 'theme' contest between each annual contest. (1-10, DFTS, Pearl). Kelandon mentioned a thread that Ephesos suggested some theme contest, and with no other ideas coming out, we might be able to make it happen.

So anyway, I'd just like to collect the idea(s) and see if there's enough interest in such a thing. I'm up for running/administering this contest myself if it goes through, FYI. I've ran two rankings contests and I'd like to try my hand at running a small design contest.

Laz - Correct.

No one will ever get this one:

I hate to say it, but I think TM's ban is permanent. He posted some offensive image, I think. Haven't actually seen it.

He'll be unbanned on 12/17 for the contest, but he'll only be allowed to post on the judging forum, so only judges will notice him. His ban will resume on 12/23.

Yay more discussion on TM!

Pinski88 - It's a general game. Anything you want.

Kel - Yes, that answer was dumb and I'm sorry. I was not thinking clearly when I wrote that. I was also under the impression that Basshingkarvea in general wasn't what offended you, just that Basshingkarvea being on CSR is what did. Sorry. (In fact, I regretted posting it five minutes later, but it was already too late to edit it out.)

Okay, next one:

The Scenario where Areni comes to the Confession Booth on the Green Mountain and is Hunted by Sir Psycho Sexy and goes down the Abyss of minimalism where Nebulous Times Hence.

Easy and simple. The objective is to take groups of scenarios, and combine the titles.

(Rules changed)

1. The scenarios in a title do have to have at least one thing in common.

2. Groups can have no less than five scenarios, no more than fifteen.

3. You can leave it to guess, or just reveal it.

Have fun!

I'll start:

Bahssikava II: We Renegade the Redwall of Dilecia's Final Spire in a Perfect Forest where the Embers and Rats Aplenty Rebel against the Magus of Cattalon Where the Rivers Meet, and we're off to A Good Beginning.

How about new BoA scenarios? in Blades of Avernum Editor
Infiltrator
Member # 5132
Profile Homepage #25
Believe it or not, I am actually considering making the scenario after the one I'm currently working on for BoA (Not the one I'm currently working on), the reason being I'm seeing better BoA scenarios coming out, and the idea for the setting of my fifth scenario might be really cool in 3D. No promises, though, but chances would be better if that editor remake is done after my current BoE scenrario is released.

That sounds good. And with such little time, I doubt many people will get to doing more than their assigned work.

I'm not sure I like the idea of judges being able to review other scenarios, even with less weighing, because it may still cause imbalance. However, I think that the 'weighted judging' may be a problem, because if you take 60% the assigned judges and 40% the not assigned ones, the non-assigned judges may actually have more impact on the score than they should. It seems like your system goes like this:

Judge A (assigned) - 8.5/10
Judge B (assigned) - 8.5/10
Judge C (assigned) - 8.5/10
8.5*.6=5.1

Judge D (not assigned) -7.5/10
7.5*.4=3

5.1+3= 8.1 (total)

In this case, the total is less than a straight average, even though non-assigned judges "weigh less" then assigned ones. If you want to keep it possible to judge other than your assigned scenarios, I say that un-assigned judges ratings should be halved or something, with the total possible adjusted, like this:

Judge A (assigned) - 8.5/10
Judge B (assigned) - 8.5/10
Judge C (assigned) - 8.5/10
Judge D (not assigned) -7.5/10 (convert 7.5 to 3.8 out of 5)

Total possible = 35
Earned = 29.3
8.37

This way, it's higher than a direct average or a weighed system. If this was your plan from start, then please excuse me.

EDIT: Did you intend the link to go to the Judging Assignments page? That's not where it leads.

There has to be a mistake...Redwall cannot be the only one. (In the judging thread, I said I had a scenario in BoE, not that I only had access to it. I do have access to BoA.)

I would suggest that having Shadow Vale as the official download site for the contest would make judging a lot more even.
Forgetting something Salmon? Like that there's a few BoE scenarios in this contest and therefore can't be hosted? Or that there's non-scenario utilities that aren't hosted there?
