In Topic: The Week of awesome II! - The second annual unofficial gamedev competitio...

Today, 04:30 AM

I'm somewhat new to blogging, let alone as part of a competition; should we post to mention each new blog entry in this thread?
 
(I ask because I've just made a post, and it occurs to me that I'm not sure of what I should be doing with regards to it; naturally this explanation constitutes advertisement of said post, but I can at least modify my behaviour for furture posts, if called for.)


when the contest starts then this will be fine to link in the main contest thread each time you make a new blog post, but since this thread is about contest information we shoudn't fill it up with needless bumps to blog entry's.

i'm about to head out to work so i'll update the first post with all the new updates when i get home.

Meeeeh, I doubt I'll do any blogging, because blogging on a daily basis is a job unto itself. Shouldn't we rather use that time to program? When I write a blog post, it takes me about two hours from start to finish, if I already have a good idea of what I want to write. That's half of a productive day of work.


You wouldn't need to do full out blog posts, just a couple of highlights of progress and a screenshot or two would do. Just enough to give a taste of what you're working on. 20 mins max type thing.


Pretty much this sean, we simply want to see what your upto, it doesn't mean you have to give us a technical run down of what your doing. At the end of the day though if you feel you can do without those 10 points than you are free not to post until your finished.

Ah, whew--thank you for that clarification! happy.png

 
I might be mistaken, so slicer can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think he means actively posting several times, while the contest, is on-going in one of the contest-related threads, either commenting on other people's progress or sharing your own progress.
 
I don't think he means merely posting once in this thread just to sign up garners you full participation points.


Correct, this!

In Topic: Microsoft buys Mojang for $2.5 Billion

The only thing that would worry me in that situation is: will my employees lose their jobs.

If the staff are retrenched by new owner, I could give them all a million dollars in guilt money without blinking... So the worry is gone. Take the billions!


you could give them a million dollar bonus anyway, we're talking about billions here!
