Is there going to be a new competition soon? It has been like a long time since the last competition was held.

I know I'm not the one with highly considered opinions, but:
It's good idea fo have some competition; even if it would be for websites, not games. This could be like a great "wake up" of community.
I think one million displays of banner is just best award for such compo. This price is not hard to organize, and worth fighting for.
IMHO judging method used in Acoders Compo will be just suitable but with otrher categories since this time websites would be rated.
Judging categories proposed by me:
Content, Interface, Graphics, Size, Originality, Community, Running Length, (and Theme Usage if it will be any competition theme).

The real difficulty behind setting up a competition is the advertising and getting prizes. I know last time citizen (and jon I believe?) did an amazing job going around to various companies asking for prize donations. The advertising is also quite a pain.

I am the one who got the prizes (over $5000 worth of prizes!). It was ALOT of work. I sent hundreds if not thousands of emails, made phone calls, and was fortunate. It was alot of work considering Acoders didn't really get anything other than traffic out of it.
 
Acoders...great games...that simple!

LOOK: million displays of winning site banner is a good prize, that Acoders can afford. Many webmasters would just love getting it, and i'm sure that someone would apply to the compo with site that is worth linking from here.

As for advertising: some news on freeware related sites... I'm sure people from Blitz and Click communities will be interested in getting this prize, because winning advertise on Acoders site is very good to promote their own sites. PLUS, acoders will get some serious linkage, because each of competitiors would have to put Acoders competition banner to have their submission applied.

Now, competition lacks only: some clever rules, some people willing to be the judges, some posts on click and blitz forums, mailing news on freeware top 40.

It will be my pleasure if i could make logo/banner for competition.

Im sure we were to get a compo going,.. a more suitbable prize could be rustled up. Banners are good.. but gadgets and gizmos are better lol.

I think now is not a good time to hold a compo.. especialy with the remakes compo currently running.

ian - go and make your own comp somewhere else. please dont use acoders name in anything you do, cause you have no affiliation with acoders

and if you're wondering. yes - im at wits end with you.
