    Yeah Oerg, I just split all your whiny crap from the thread. I'd advise you not to restart it again either.

    IMO, it should be 1 entry per person....

    I agree, with group hacks being an exception.
    As an example, say Person A and Person B are helping Person C with a group hack but both Person A and Person B are also working on single projects unrelated to the group effort, those 3 entries should be allowed for entry, right?
    Also, if Person C is working on both the group project and another single project, how would that work? Would both be allowed for entry, seeing as one is a group effort?

    Yea, with those exceptions. 1 Single effort submission, and 1 group effort submission per person would make sense.

    Why? People would just put all their ideas into one hack anyway, so it wouldn't be any different. And even if it was, it's hardly going to have a positive effect. 1 hack that was focused on by the hacker is going to be better than 11 hacks thrown together in a rush =P

    Limiting entries is not a good thing. It stifles proof of concept creativity and makes people choose carefully what to submit when they might have two or three excellent proofs of concept. That's why I allow unlimited entries.

    Updates to hacks will no longer be accepted after 9/18/09. This gives you the rest of the week to iron anything out. Results should be released within the month after the 18th.

    Ok, so check it. I'm gonna lock this topic until they're ready to announce the results. Then they can either unlock it or make a separate topic.

    Court is adjourned.

    Results will tentatively be released tomorrow on skype / podcast. More information will be given when we're getting ready to do it. If not tomorrow, then within the next week, but you can be sure it will happen between tomorrow and the friday after =) Once again, we thank you all for your entries. This year's contest would not have been the smashing success it was without all of your fantastic contributions =)

    I'm assuming the "podcast" link at the top of this webpage next to "irc" and "about".

    Anyway, I am excited to hear the results! :)
