There seems to be a little confusion as to how you register your game to be judged in the Java 4k Game Programming contest, so I'm hoping to clear this up
. As my main page
says, you need to post the information of your game (at least an URL, obviously) at one of these two forum posts:
It's more likely that I will notice your game first on these forums, but you may want to post on java.sun.com also so readers there can notify me if I've skipped over your game.
The Games List
is updated every weekend (on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday).
As the deadline for the contest approaches, you need to make sure that I have added your game to the list! The list will serve a convenience for judges so they won't have to dig through the forum posts themselves. If your game does not appear on the list by February 27th, you need to contact me (email, PM, IM, whatever)
. February 27th is the last Sunday before the end of the contest, which is the 28th. Forum posts that have post dates that are after February 27th EST will not be accepted for this year's contest. February 28th is the day I'll be going through my e-mail for games that I have skipped (which I hope is none
). As far as I know the judges will start working on the games on March 1st (someone want to verify this?).
Speaking of which, if someone wants to start a poll (mlk!!) for who should be on the judge team, you might want to go ahead and post that
