RPG4D judging suggestions

RPG4D Standalone Banner Request

RPG4D could use a standalone banner so that we can use it to advertise the competition, put it in your signatures at other forums, etc.

The one I have on the competition page doesn't have any information about the competition on it (it doesn't even say that RPG Four Digits is a competition), so isn't really suitable for that. Plus it's hardly very good anyway, so if someone makes a new one I'll replace it.

Seeing as I have no graphical skills at all, I'm going to ask you guys if you could come up with something!

Ideally the banner should have the competition name (or "64digits" and the competition theme if you prefer), mention that it is a game making competition and have the dates and/or duration of the competition.

Judging Panel Suggestions

So I've decided that the competition will have a judging panel involved in some way, who will either fully or partially decide the winners.

Preferably the panel will consist of famous indie game developers, people whose opinion will be both well respected and unbiased. And if they've made RPGs, that would be a bonus I guess.

So I'd like to ask who you would like to see judging, if you could pick any game developer, artist, composer, etc. Think ambitiously.

(Well, not too ambitiously. First person to suggest Shigeru Miyamoto gets punched in the face)

Notch? Or is that too ambitious already? I guess so.

You can ask all 64d topdevelopers to judge. I guess you can also ask the GMC staff.

Matt Thorson, JW and Cactus

Notch is the correct level of ambition. Though an obvious one.

Regular 64d-ers might be bias towards 64d-ers… but I suppose we could have one for the sake of it

And I couldn't give a flying asdfghjkl who staffs the GMC.

We could get RC. He's a 64Der who's a mod over there. XD

Cactus, if you could reach him.

Mega 64

No really, I think getting one of these "top indie devs" for such a little site as ours is going to be difficult and ambitious. It's a nice thought, but maybe we should consider something else.

Toast 12 years, 2 months ago

We're not asking much of them, really.

I'll do something else if it fails.

Castypher 12 years, 2 months ago

I dunno man, if anyone's going to make it work, it'll be you. You're by far our top competition host right now, and you go to some pretty great lengths to make things work.

RC 12 years, 2 months ago

Toast would make a good judge.

You could also ask NAL, though I don't know if he would have the time or want to do it. I'm fairly certain he was a judge for the last YYG competition.
