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."

    Briefly, he'll only be there for the interim. Like a stopgap of sorts, he'll be back home in short time

    Happy Thursday!

    Yep. Just another fun night at work.
  • Varine Varine:
    Broke the nozzle on my 3d printer and I don't have another heater block. So... I guess I'm fucked on that this weekend
  • The Helper The Helper:
    that sucks i bet they are expensive
  • Varine Varine:
    Not really
  • Varine Varine:
    The entire hot end is like 20 dollars, I just can't get anymore until next week
  • Varine Varine:
    I ordered like five blocks for 15 dollars. They're just little aluminum blocks with holes drilled into them
  • Varine Varine:
    They are pretty much disposable. I have shitty nozzles though, and I don't think these were designed for how hot I've run them
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to extract it but the thing is pretty stuck. Idk what else I can use this for
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll throw it into my scrap stuff box, I'm sure can be used for something
  • Varine Varine:
    I have spare parts for like, everything BUT that block lol. Oh well, I'll print this shit next week I guess. Hopefully it fits
  • Varine Varine:
    I see that, despite your insistence to the contrary, we are becoming a recipe website
  • Varine Varine:
    Which is unique I guess.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Actually I was just playing with having some kind of mention of the food forum and recipes on the main page to test and see if it would engage some of those people to post something. It is just weird to get so much traffic and no engagement
  • The Helper The Helper:
    So what it really is me trying to implement some kind of better site navigation not change the whole theme of the site
