    This'll actually be the second SAGE I'll go through, though, why Megamix was in last year I'll never know. :)

    What's SAGE again? Either is registering a game for a contest, or someone got confused in the word "SEGA" calling it "Sarvice Gemes"

    SAGE is an exhibition. Exhibition is the name given to various large public exhibitions held since the mid-19th century. They are the third largest event in the world in terms of economic and cultural impact, after the FIFA World Cup and the Olympic Games.[citation needed] They have been organized for more than one and a half centuries — longer than both the (modern) Olympic Games and the World Cup. The first Expo was held in The Crystal Palace in Hyde Park, London, in 1851 under the title “Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Nations”. “The Great Exhibition”, as it is often called, was an idea of Prince Albert, Queen Victoria's husband, and was the first international exhibition of manufactured products. As such, it influenced the development of several aspects of society including art and design education, international trade and relations, and even tourism [1]. Also, it was the precedent for the many international exhibitions, later called “World's Fairs”, which were subsequently held to the present day. In Acapulco, New Spain (Mexico), annual fairs took place for several centuries where countries from Asia exhibited their products bought to the New World by the Spanish Royal Navy Nao de China.

    The main attractions at World's Fairs are the national pavilions, created by participating countries. At Expo 2000 Hanover, where countries created their own architecture, the average pavilion investment was around €13 million.[citation needed] Given these costs, EU governments are sometimes skeptical about participation as tangible benefits are often assumed not to outweigh the costs. Effects are often not measured, however. An exception was an independent study for the Dutch pavilion at Expo 2000. This research estimated the pavilion (which cost around € 35 million) generated around € 350 million of potential revenues for the Dutch economy. It also identified several key success factors for world exposition pavilions in general[2].

    Since the signing of the 1928 Convention on International Exhibitions, the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE; English: International Exhibitions Bureau) has served as an international sanctioning body. BIE-approved fairs are divided into a number of types: universal, international or specialized. They usually last between three and six months.

    In Short, an Exposition is a gathering of people, who show off their creations and works to others.

    Well they did use to be twice a year, honestly I think a year wait is too long for how little awesome usually appears, if any.

    I know most of the community are lazy.

    It was actually like this:

    There was one SAGE in March, and one in September, I can't believe that they had to ditch the idea of have two SAGE's, and instead, they have an idea of just having one SAGE, the last year that SAGE was biannually was in 2004, and I've been attending SAGE since SAGE 7 opened on September 9, 2003, and the last biannual SAGE was SAGE 9, which started on September 10, 2004.

    And the first Annual SAGE was on August of 2005, and It was a great blast from the past, I would like to see SAGE XIV go sucessful like SAGE XIII did.

    I missed the last sage which was on partly due to having no care for it but I also saw no hype or anything for it on any sonic forum.

    I decided that I will enter it this year, now that I have a clear mind without university I'm mildly interested again. But what needs to happen is more complete games instead of people spending months on an engine to scrap it and start again, most fangames do this and it's what ruins the point. Sometimes being too perfect to a genesis version is worse more then good.
