Title: Unofficial Codewalrus Contest #1
Post by: _iPhoenix_ on July 20, 2017, 06:30:43 pm
(Well, Juju told me I could do this, so I guess it is semi-unofficial)


This contest's topic is weather. To be eligible for a prize, you must make a program or create an IRL creation that involves weather, and topic showing your progress, with the "[UCC1]" tag in the title
The contest will last 4 weeks, and end on the 17th of August 9th of September at 11:59:59 EDT. No late entries will be accepted.


If you choose to make an IRL creation, you must create a video describing your project and its features.


If you choose to make a program, for any platform/language, you cannot release source until after the contest


*keep your entry SFW*


All entries are to be submitted to in a PM to me, @_iPhoenix_



You will be judged on these criteria, although your entry can be penalized at the discretion of the judges, to some extent:
- overall project detail and completeness, including functionality and design.
- interation with other users, including the reception and distribution of feedback.
- overall ingenuity.
- number of walruses involved (just kidding, this will not affect your score)
Contest judges (i.e. me, but you can request to be one if you have over 100 posts, just ask in this thread. Only 2 more judges will be accepted.) are not allowed to participate, and cannot win prizes.


As for prizes, printable walrus "diplomas" will be issued to the top three winners, signed by the contest judges under their usernames. (If you are accepted as a judge, PM me a pic of your signature, signing as your username)


legal crud: ShowHide
Neither myself; the contest judges; the CodeWalrus site, admins and users; or contest participants are liable for any damage or legal s*** you come up with
The opinions expressed by the judges in the choosing of a winner may not represent the entire views of the CodeWalrus community or admins.
All decisions are final.



Have fun!


If you have any questions about this do not be afraid to ask in this thread!

Ahahahahaha

I have an idea for a game which (if I make it) will feature weather, although in a pretty contrived sense. It will give the game more fun though.

Not gonna say anything else for now or make a thread, going to keep it secret until I have a first demo up and running.

Won't be a calculator game by the way, gonna be for PC.

Has anyone entered this contest so far? I assume Kotu did, but I was wondering how many people did

Yes. It is open to anyone!

I will probably either extend the contest, or host another one around September, when everyone is forcibly exposed to their calcs.

@_iPhoenix_ are we allowed multiple entries to the competition and if so could their combined -score- result in a Win?

might make things more interesting for ..................... |||

Multiple entries should be averaged to prevent spamming low quality entries.

Both users will (in the next ~30 seconds) be sent a PM with their exclusive UCC1 poster!

EDIT: It seems @kotu has been <temp> banned (go figure), so he will receive his poster when he gets back.
