i voted without reading the code, but i did test every hero out in-game with only a quick glance at the code

i voted for the most enjoyable/original hero in the end, which i'm sure most would agree is fair to take a chunk of the grade.
though it does seems kind of redundant that the judge is marking the same criteria that the voters are basically marking.
if i did a hybrid like this i'd just mark code and theme and leave the rest up to the voters

also - i'd be more worried about voter bias than the judge so i'd say voting before grades (the way it is now) is better

@Emjlr3
We got PWNED at votes...

@Me
Maybe I had crappy terrain? But this is hero contest, no terrain one.

Most schools right about now are either starting their final exams or starting the first day of school.

Now, Romek, he doesn't have a whole lot of free time, with Essays and schoolwork and such. However, I myself, I have hours upon hours of freetime, So I can grade many spells in the timeframe of say 1 week.

I don't care if the grading takes 2, 3 or more weeks, just wanna be sure he didn't ditch us xd

These contests are supervised by moderators, you cant just start a contests if the moderators dont have a complete trust in you. i have trust in the moderators thus i trust the jury.

Considering his last login date, therefore him not responding for a week+, it does seem he's just Houdini'd on us *poof*.

I've contacted Romek about it, he says wait for two more weeks and then action will be taken if he still does not come back.

With this, I feel it was unnecessary of him to close the poll :-/

It doesn't look like NeuroToxin's making any progress with this. I have one final exam on Wednesday, so I'll deal with this after that. This is most certainly not what I was expecting from NeuroToxin (who insisted he had too much time, and was very keen on hosting a contest). I'd like to apologize to everyone who put the effort into making the heroes, and also everyone who followed this contest. I'll be more strict with who I allow to host contests in the future, and until then, let this be an example as to why we don't generally allow user-hosted contests.

I'll host the next contest. Feel free to PM any ideas you may have! ;)

Is it possible for one of the moderators/admins to at least grade this contest so the participants didn't waste all their time?

dump this contest, if you ask me

it wouldn't be fair for the mods (or anyone else) wasting weeks grading someone else's contest

tbh I've already forgotten about this contest until you bumped it xd

the "wasted" time isn't nearly as much as it would took someone to grade all those heroes, at least it wasn't for me

I simply love making spells and I participate contests like this mostly for fun

"It's like a slap in the face!" . . . or however it went :p

I found this amusing, lol: "2 people like this. Be the first of your friends."

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though
