Agreed. I bet that community members could keep it coming...

It's not the last. Not sure why @xlibman wrote that. We will probably be going through some format changes to reduce the load on staff, but it won't be over :). I have updated the OP to reflect this staff decision.

As discussed on IRC, I would be up to keeping the award going myself, if you guys needed the help.

As far as I know, it will be the last @xlibman will be in charge of, hence the final. Since then, the rest of the staff and other members were interested to take the award in charge, but it may indeed see a format change, so it may the final award as we know it. Anyway, more on that later.

@aeTIos the reason why I wrote that is because in the last 7 years, whenever I was in charge of a special Omnimaga or CodeWalrus event, not even one person, with the exception of the TI-Planet staff in 2011-13 for the Omnimaga Nspire news, ever offered any help, even after I was forced to step down. So I figured that if I was forced to withdraw from the Monthly CW award that this pretty much guaranteed its death.

I am surprised Unicorn or anyone else offered to take over, considering past experiences. Thanks a lot, though, I just kinda wish this had happened with past events or newsing (which I stopped a long while ago) too. But yeah, this is likely the final award in its current form since the format I saw described in the staff TG group seemed different (from what I gather, people will have to submit their projects in order to be eligible)

Yeah, this was surprising to me as well, in the last few years no one seemed to help for anything, so yeah, that's probably the reaction anyone would have in this situation.

I like the idea people would have to sign up to be eligible, as it would heavily cut down the time needed to hunt down all those projects.

I have noticed how usually it says "you should pick at least X entries" but now it says "you can pick X max"; lol.
Anyways, so is @aeTIos going to continue this? Personally i think making a list of all projects seen during the month is a good idea, even if you dont vote on them  :thumbsup:

Yeah it was probably a typo before. There was always a maximum to choose from. The only difference is that for this particular poll, if two entries finish with the highest amount of point then they all win with no tie-breaker.

Side note: is it possible for the number of monthly / yearly awards won to be shown somewhere? I can go digging and find old stats, if needed.

Most likely we're gonna ask people to enter their project into the contest if they want to participate - unlike @xlibman I don't really have the time (and mainly motivation ehehe ^^') to round up every updated project of the last month :') Either way the format won't change very significantly otherwise. Watch the upcoming news articles for updates.

If we do this then the submission link must be very visible, though, such as an alert above the CW ads.

Also yeah I really need to put a list of winners and link to old results somewhere.

Thank you to everyone who voted for this poll and congratulations to both @Juju and @Pieman7373 for winning this edition of the Monthly CW Project Award, with the Arcade cabinet and Dragon Warrior, respectively. While pretty hectic, it was fun to run this project contest for the 12 months it lasted. Hopefully the rest of the CodeWalrus team or a dedicated member will instate a replacement in the future. :)

I'll try to remember to make a new topic later that lists all 13 winners, as well as the 2016 yearly award winner. I should maybe also include the winners of past CW contests.
