I hope you still got it. It arrived a few mins late, because of some problems on my side. Gmail was not working. and stuff.
Please still judge it, although I know I can't win the 1st place anymore.

I used a GMX.DE mail adress to send it, so that it doesn't confuse.

We here at Owl Crusade News are issuing an official apology. We didn't mean to come up with wrong calculations. We also didn't want all of these sentences to have exactly 3 Ws in them.

DJ is probably at some hockey game right now so I'm handling this while he's not here. Well, as you got some problems with your email and you still managed to post it before I post all the entries online I'd forgive you, but well it's pretty much case by case. DJ have the final word on this though, so let's wait for him to say what he thinks.

By the way you can try them out here (http://codewalr.us/contests/2015-4x3/), I'll post the votes ar around midnight GMT-4, or at least after we checked for their validity.

Commemorative anagrams, because why not:

Codewalrus Four by Three Contest = Beat other scores? Fun. We could try.

I would say it's fine in this case due to the aforementionned e-mail issue, but the next time we do a contest it doesn't mean entries will be accepted after the deadline. This is why I stated before to not wait until the very last minute to submit entries, in case e-mail issues, unexpected bugs in your program or Internet connection dying would happen at the end. This is also why I gave a bit more than 1 month to make your entry after all ;), so yeah, this 20-minutes late entry (or 11?) will be accepted but for CW Contest #2 (or rather 1 since this contest is more a mini-contest) it will not be.

Same goes for the readme.txt that was missing in one entry. The entry arrived before the deadline but the readme was missing. Also, the only reason why a txt readme was required was to stop Nspire Lua programmers from including their readmes inside the executable, which prevents people from knowing what they're about to download (eg if it's a graphical RPG or pure menu-only garbage, which is given away by game controls) and if it runs on their hardware, thus, causing them to waste their time (especially with how long Nspire Student Software takes to startup).

That one entry that got in 4 hours after the deadline, on the other hand, won't be accepted. On top of that the person who submitted this late didn't even bother making a topic about his entry and has 0 posts, so even if he had submitted in time, without a topic his entry would be disqualified anyway.

When I ran Omnimaga (including two contest and part of a third one) the entries were always accepted up to 1 hour past the announced deadline.


Also I'll attach a poll to this topic with entry download (and web links if applicable), but with the author nicks and entry title and topic links, so people know which entry is whom and stuff.

Not yet, I was testing all entries one by one (except the ones I already tested earlier that didn't get updated) to ensure that they work. I confirm that the 14 accepted entries are working and thus, remains accepted. :P So the poll will begin as soon as I set it up.

EDIT: The poll is up at http://codewalr.us/index.php?topic=509.0 ! Choose your three favorite entries! Meanwhile, I'll begin judging.

It depends if I somehow run out of time during that time frame, though. With 14 entries that could take a while, especially that I will at least try to play through games for a while to see if they have a significant length and entertainment value. Even longer if I get addicted to one of them like in previous contests I ran <_<

I thought about something such as 60% total votes and 40% judging (basically if there is a total of 60 entries voted for, then the judging scores would be divided until their total reaches 40), but ideally I would like to do it like the 2010 Omnimaga contest that I partly judged. The ratio might vary based on how many votes we get, but it's unlikely we will get more judges at this point. Just as long as people's voice on this forum (via the contest poll) has enough power rather than just 1 single judge. After all, I am confident that our forum members are able to use enough common sense to not vote on a contest entry only if it's called Pokémon. ;) On the other hand, LD Studio has a point about people having the platforms or not so judging results will definitively have a significant impact on final results.

We didn't have much choice sadly due to the multi-platform nature of this contest. Sadly we can't please everyone when we only have 1 category. Not to mention that if we had multiple categories per platform, then both gameblabla and alexgt would have won by default.

UPDATE: A SMF bug combined with my lower account permissions (compared to Street, Juju and Eiyeron) has resulted into the poll results becoming public for a short while earlier. I apologize about that. It is fixed now, but to prevent this from happening again, I would like to ask any staff that are not part of the server maintenance group to not edit the poll. The issue was caused by how I have full privileges when creating new polls, but limited privileges when editing them, so once I edit an existing poll, it makes results public by default and I can no longer change the expiry date. I have found a way to set my group to be able to edit any poll, but it did not fix the problem.

So now the only way to keep results hidden until the end is to ensure that no staff other than those in the red server maintenance group edits the poll.

Post by: alexgt on June 03, 2015, 08:08:52 pm

Post by: DJ Omnimaga on June 03, 2015, 11:01:14 pm
Thanks. SMF can be annoying sometimes. It was entirely possible that the poll would be unfixable, in which case the results would have been public until the end (and this would probably be the last time I make a poll for a contest)

I also added the poll to the front page, but the choices are hidden if you voted or if you do not have voting privileges.

Most likely somewhere around June 15th. I took a break earlier this week due to past weeks stress but I am resuming judging soon. I already tried all entries but I still need to familiarize myself with them to judge them adequatly.

Oh I was in vacation actually, but I didn't feel like doing anything since I was so tired. I started work again but I am less tired so hopefully I judge soon.

Whoever wins will be asked a working e-mail address to which I can send him the digital prize and of course asked what he prefers (eg iTunes, Amazon, Steam). Itunes isn't really recommended, though, because Apple was stupid enough to still force users to enter a credit card number in a field even if they were going to use gift cards only, and I don't remember if they fixed that.

Yeah I am just making sure because some people use fake email addresses on forums and ticalc.org because they're scared of getting spam or that admins use the addresses for bad things. If I send a prize to a fake address then the price will never be received :P

^This. But some people use fake addresses only because they are extremely paranoid about their privacy and thinks that every calc forum admin are just pedos awaiting for the best moment to catch a little kid from the forum after tracking down their location.

Oh right you are leaving soon. I wasn't sure if it was in late july or earlier anymore.

Unless I procastinate and finish judging entries only when you have turned 18 years old O.O (I actually played all games but there are some that were harder or more confusing that I need to replay to judge adequatly, and I recently created the judging score template file

There will probably be some delays after the vote results come out before final results arrive, because I'm too lazy to get access to the actual voting results before they are revealed, then I'Ll need to merge them adequatly. Of course I bet that it won't please everyone, though, seeing all the whining that occurs during every Code Golf contest anywhere about the rules (with certain rare individuals who are particularly noisy almost bordering on being confrontational/harassing until the author gives up)

But yeah I am almost done judging the entries so I'll double-check every judging result totals again to ensure that no miscalculating have occurred.

More suspense to tease you: The contest judging is over, but here are the scores so far, from highest to lowest, without the entry names/authors :P. All those scores are greatly inflated due to the full-screen and installing/speed rules, though, because when this contest started, we expected many people to just cheat by making tiny games using 12 blocks made of 3x3 pixels using two Pt-On/Chg() commands to save speed, but finally almost everyone either made their entry full screen or very large, and many of the entries were easy to install and fast enough to be enjoyable. The max is 100 points:

92
90
88
87
87
86
85
84
83
82
80
68
58
37

Yes. :P Anyway I'll try to publish the other results ASAP. I first need to convert the voting results into percentages or something. It seems like voting results won't have as much impact towards final results as the Omnimaga 2010 contests, because only 15 people voted (although this time they could vote for three entries at most). IIRC the 2010 contest had 50 people who voted.

EDIT: 38 votes total, meaning an average of 2.71 votes per people

Looks like the voting was a tie between brentmaas' PixCiv in Java, my Bitty Bird in TI BASIC, and unknownloner's web-based ColorZ.

So, we ALL get 1st place medals? :P

Erm actually it's the other way around, and probably an higher share due to lower amount of votes compared to the 2010 Omni contest. But I still need to find the old results on archive.org to see how I calculated it back then.

EDIT here they are: https://web.archive.org/web/20110413080842/http://www.omnimaga.org/index.php?action=articles;sa=view;article=21

EDIT: Basically, back then, here is how it worked:

The max possible score from judging was 300. For the voting round, the entry with the highest amount of votes (8 votes) was extrapolated to 300 points and the rest were proportionally increased (basically, 37.5 points per votes). There were three times more judges and 3.333 times more voters.

Since the judging score is now 100 points instead of 300,  there will be 12.5 points per votes instead of 37.5.

Well, it seems not much people voted, so it's normal DJ's judging took a lot of the score.

^This. Since the total judging score was three times lower than the 2010 Axe contest, I decided to make each vote 12.5 times lower as well, but total votes were lower overall (38 totals IIRC, for an average of 2.7 per members, while the 2010 contest had 50 people vote once each) so the judging scores counted for a bit more.

In the future, I might hold a poll to see what percentages people would prefer (including options with no poll or no judging), but again I am reluctant about the idea of a vote-only contest, since if we start getting many new members who only sign up for games, many people might start voting only based on game names without even trying the program (kinda like on ticalc.org where Pokeman Red Blue Silver v1.337 topped the weekly download stats a few times despite not even being close to a Pokemon game). This year I was a bit late for such opinion poll, though, so I just went and did this contest like the 2010 contest that I ran.

I was thinking more like 70% Judging and 30% Voting, because some people may not be able to see how good an entry is, for example, I couldn't try out Nspire Entries.

It's next to impossible to find a judge who owns that many platforms, though. The only way we could have judges is if we made the contest for just 1 platform or have each platform split into multiple contests like the 2011 Omni contest. But then it's hard to find the money x.x.

The TI-Nspire Student Software has a 30 days trial, so you could probably have used it to try the Nspire entry. Of course that would not work if the entry had used Ndless, though, or if it ran too fast in the simulator like the HP Prime entry.

The Code Golf on Omnimaga accepts pretty much everything, but in that case the languages golfers usually use are either free (like Python), everyone owns it or is easily emulable (like the 83+). Like the 4x3 contest, mostly every entry was on a platform everyone have (except the HP Prime one). Of course, if you're gonna run it on a Casio Prizm or HP Prime, it's gonna be slightly harder, the judge would have to own one.

Post by: DJ Omnimaga on June 22, 2015, 02:26:27 am
Yeah true. That said, IIRC Code Golf contests are slightly about choosing the right language/platform, right? Because some Code Golf entries can only be done small in certain languages it seems.

And sometimes that language is not what you'd think. Sometimes, something can be done the smallest in TI-BASIC. That's right, it even beat Golfscript and CJam.

Only on occasion. Usually Golfscript and CJam beat it out.

I mean, winning entries for displaying 1337 in:

TI-BASIC (9): int(pi^^2^pi+int(epi

Golfscript (9): !.))...+)

CJam (4): DHK+

And for searching for the letters in the word "CODE" in order in:

TI-BASIC (50):
Input Str1
1
For(X,1,4
inString(Str1,sub("CODE",X,1),Ans
If not(Ans
ClrHome
Disp Ans
If not(Ans
Return
End

Golfscript (55): 0:a;{.96>32 0if-}/]"CODE"{1$?.a+:a\@>}/;]..$=*.{n*}0if

There's no clear-cut winner. :P

Lol. I also need to make sure the contest won't happen at the same time as a Cemetech contest (unless said contest is educational and doesn't involve anything close to a game). TI-Planet no longer do any game-related contest and Omnimaga doesn't appear to do any contest anymore so I guess Cemetech is the only site we might be at risk of budging on their thunder and dilluting the amount of entries.
