August 1999 POTM Nominations
Posted by Andy on 1 September 1999, 17:39 GMT

It is once again time for the POTM Nominations. Please nominate your choices at our nomination form. Additionally, please make sure you have tried games you are nominating before putting in nominations. If you don't have a certain calculator, leave that section blank. Have fun. The final vote will begin after the week long nomination process.

Update (Kirk): There was at first a problem with the nomination form that caused only one program to be listed in the TI-89 section. Although relatively few votes were affected, we will still consider this when tabulating the results.

I predict Ion will win the 83+ category. It's the first shell and the best program so far. That, and Tetris. Oh, please try my Pythag2 program, at least I think it's nice.

(Sorry, just couldn't resist the shameless plug)

The only things that really said in this comments section are plugs for programs. So I will do just that. All I ask is that you guys try my games: Slayer and Slayer 2 (Ti-86 basic.) You dont have to nominate them, but give them a try. (Naturally, if you like them I would appreciate any nominations.) Thanks.

Hmm. I was surprised to learn that one of my programs made it. While I consider it an honor, I figure I have little chance vs. some of the others. Besides, mine had a bug in it! There will be an update after this is over. I'm not going to tell you what program it is so that you might accidentally vote for it!

Actually, every program that ticalc.org added/updated this past month is in the nominations. Thats why they call it "Nominations".. the winners of this vote will just qualify for the real vote.

That is so far from correct. It is way beyond being just incorrect also. Not all programs are included in the nominations. How do I know this? Well, first, I have submitted a program (graphic, actually) to the ticalc.org archives, and I know other ppl who have submitted programs which do not show up on the nominations list either. Just take a look at the 89 section and truthfully tell me that Nibbles was the _only_ program submitted into the _entire_ 89 asm dir, and I'll tell you that you are one lying son of a bith.

I don't know what you've been smoking, but there are at least 15 or so programs in the nomination list for the TI-89 Assembly section.

And your StarFox graphic for the TI-89 is also in that list.

Ok, no need to get mad. No one has been smoking anything. I know Miles and Bryan are both right. Why? Miles, John Barwick, and I saw only ONE program in the 89 asm list (which is odd since PROSIT wasn't in there ={ ). Most of the time I side with Bryan, but I am 110% sure that there was only ONE program in the ASM programs list in the nomination list when I saw it. TICALC really screwed up the list this time with this error, since some people have already voted on the bad list. So there was no need for name calling (Miles) and no need to get mad (Bryan)....



PROSIT RULES!!!!!!!!

Sorry, I did not intend for my response to seem like I was angry.

When I voted, there were 15 programs in the 89asm list. Maybe before I voted, and before ticalc.org fixed this so called "error", there was only 1 program listed.

All I know is, there are 15 programs listed there now. :)

As noted in the article now, there was a problem and we will take it into account if necessary when we tabulate the results.

Yay! This is the first vote where a ID and cryptic password isn't required!

Also, I still think that Z80 and 68000 basic should be split.

The POTM voting system uses your ticalc.org account. This is being used by all parts of the site, to make sure you have only *one* password to remember. And you can store that password in a cookie if your computer is secure enough.

I bet I can predict the winner of the 92-Assembly nominations ;)

I think that it should have not every ti-basic program in only one group... it would be better if one group=one calcultor 's ti-basic programs

I agree with you.
Not every person will like the fact that a BASIC program for another calc won over a program for their calc.

To tell you the truth, I don't vote for BASIC only because I can't stand how long it take to compile the "good" games and that the appear looks bad.
The BASIC programs I have are the ones I made for math class (and the one for YAS).

I tokenize all my TI-BASIC files before I send them to the computer. That way the program runs instantly. I /hate/ waiting for the stupid things to tokenize--because many TI-BASIC programs aren't really worth the wait.

And the ones that are really good still annoy me--the author should have known to tokenize the program himself if he could write a good program, hehe.
