2005 POTY Voting Opens
Posted by Michael on 30 November 2005, 21:59 GMT

Friends, Romans, calculatormen, lend me your ears: It is time to vote for the 2005 Program of the Year awards! All programs featured in 2005 are eligible to win. Throughout December we will be posting weekly surveys with programs grouped by calculator model, beginning with the TI-83/83+/84+ series. Simply vote each week for your favorite program and then check back in January for the exciting results!

For those of you who are unfamiliar with this great competition (now in its third year), visit the POTY webpage. As always, winners will be listed there and will receive a special screenshot on their file's information page.

The first survey is now open. Vote!

Interesting... That's what I get for asking two minutes before the survey goes up. Hehe.

too bad no 82 programs this year, I thought DigiTan's Robot War deserved a feature :-(

I too think this program should have been featured.. the moment I saw it in the recent files, I was amazed!.. Last I heard, it is being ported to all calculators from the 82 to the 86, so maybe once it's got a little wider platform, it will get recognized a little more.. hopefully then, it will be featured, and it will be in next year's contest..

No 86 files, no vote from me :-/ We old skool coders have gotten lazy or moved on... mostly both i think ;)

...or are just working on projects, like MLC, that are too large to give us time for other programs (like me).

I checked it out and am totally amazed. MLC should not be freeware :-) TI-Basic is nothing now - nothing whatsoever - totally useless.

Thanks! The real problem with the 86 version was the huge size of the interpreter. However, the project has "come under new management", we've come up with some new specs for much more powerful syntax, and now I'm working on a completely new interpreter which should be smaller than the last one.

YEAH go Wizards. This may sound like advertisements, but to discuss Wizards progress and get your input in on features, go to revsoft.org.

Hooray for NanoWar and also for Kevin for getting 3(!) programs into the POTY contest.

Is there any chances for my game to be featured for TI68k POTY 2005 if release my game (F-ZERO for TI68k) in the next few days ?

Normally we include programs released in December in the next year's POTY, as they missed the surveys.

I would have to discuss it with other staff members. I would be concerned that having a program featured on the front page at the same time as the voting might influence votes.

To follow up, I think we will maintain the deadline of December 1 that we traditionally have done.

I loved the small demo you released a while back, this will be one of the best 68k games ever!

Thanks :)
btw the demo really sucks when I see it now, the current version is really far far far better (you'll see that in the next days ;) )
