One question about multiple entries... is the winner of the competition the "one who wrote the entry with the most votes", or the "person with the most votes"? i.e. if someone enters 3 projects, and they each get 30 points, but someone else enters one project and gets 31 points, who wins?

It seems like the "person with the most votes" should win the competition, though the winning project should be the one with the most votes (it'd be dumb to promote the best project as a lame demo because someone entered a bunch of projects, but their best one only got 5 points).

I was just thinking that it might be a deterrent to submitting multiple entries, since you're creating competition for yourself (you really only want to promote your project that has the best chance of winning, like a party choosing a candidate for a political election). Or, I guess maybe it'll cause everyone to create a "CC10 Multi-Game" with all their entries in a single entry. Of course, I was kinda thinking of a multi-game entry anyway, but not for this reason.

So... could you clarify the rule?

Since it says "if someone's projects place 1st and 2nd" I'd assumed that each project would get voted on separately. But you do raise a good point about a person being his own competition. The same percentage of people might like each of Person A's entries, while a slightly larger percentage (maybe even just one more person) likes Person B's single entry.

That's a tough one...

Also: "Of course users registered before 05/01/2010..." should probably read: "Of course users registered after 05/01/2010...".

LOL... by you bringing that line to my attention, I just thought of something... rather than submitting multiple projects, you should make a new user to submit each crappy one, then use their votes toward your good one :D. Heheheh... j/k... and I hope/assume KR155E would catch on :P.

Thanks for pointing these things out! I updated the rules. Most notably:

- Multiple entries are allowed, but will be rated individually (means you can't collect votes through multiple projects). This means on one hand, that your project will compete with each other, on the other hand that, if they're all good, you'll maximize your chance of winning with one of the projects.

- In case of multiple submission, each individual can still only get one prize (i.e. if someone's projects place 1st and 2nd, he will get the 1st prize, while the 2nd prize will be awarded to the 3rd placed entry and so on).

Do we have to use the exact code you included, or just the image? I'd rather use vbFXFadeIn and vbFXFadeOut.

You can use your own code, mine is just an example. Will add that to the rules.

I don't really understand the thing about licensing. Plus, the link about it seems broken.

The link works fine for me.

If you don't care about licenses, you don't have to deal with them. Just release stuff as usual and everything is OK.

Question: Can I change a game after I release it (i.e. fix something if I find something wrong?)

Sure, you can release as many updates as you wish. The last one posted in the release thread will be the competing one (unless stated otherwise by you).
