December 1999 POTM Vote
Posted by Nick on 24 January 2000, 02:44 GMT

Due to the Millenium awards occupying our time for a little while, we've had to delay this a bit. At any rate, you can now vote on the December 1999 Program of the Month. Next month's POTM voting will occur on schedule, as usual. We apologize for this month's delay.

Update (Nick): You know, a funny thing happened the other day. When we were posting the POTM voting page, we loaded up the wrong month of featured programs. This - logically enough - messed up voting a bit. So, we apologize, but if you voted before you have to vote again. Voting will close on January 30 (1 week after when I post this). This time, everything really should be fixed. If it's not, I expect everyone who visits this site to collectively plot my ghastly demise.
The ghastlier, the better. :-)

finally, smq for AMS 2.03 on ti-89 and 92+. It's been changed though, and it's only a beta. Check it out at mf.calc.org

<sarcasm>Still using that *wonderful* voting system I see. Wow, would you look at that! A whopping 3 files in the 89/92/92+ catergory!! Check out the variety! Don't we just love this awesome voting system? I mean, they even separate it into catergories so we don't forget which calculator stuff was written for! Why couldn't POTM have been this good all along??</sarcasm>

If you don't like how we're doing POTM, tell us what we SHOULD be doing so we can fix it. We're open to constructive criticism with this. We always will be.

With all the suggestions from last vote's comment board, the idea that the current system sucks [bleep], it should be obvious that no one likes it, and it must be changed.

I am personally in favor of the old system. (Nominate, Vote, catagorized by calc)

People complained with the old system too. That's why we changed it. Do you find anything with the old system that we can make changes to so everyone will be satisfied?

Okay, if you want some ideas, here's a good one: Do it more like the Millenium awards, where we can nominate from the complete lists of all catergories for all calculators. Nominations could be the first two weeks of the month and then the actual voting could be the second two weeks of the month.
What about the TI-80 etc.? There could be some sort of minimum nomination limit, like say, at least 50 nominations to be on the ballot? You should really consider a system like this instead of what's currently being used.

Well, I have one. Make it so every game submitted is up there. I never saw Stardust or my Hicquest 4 game. Other than that, I thinks it's good. Just put every game/program submitted.

uggg - something's pretty bad when I can't even make 3 votes. Only 2 progs deserve it, and one's a port =(

I gave one to Mars Patrol simply because it has some nice, stable greyscale on an 83 (a technical feat), and another to Plain Jump 83 because it's a complex program and requires a bit more effort to port than others (and just because Sam finally ported it after his 83+ boycott =)

I agree. The code isn't too bad but the gameplay is lousy :{

Yeah, but not all games are up there. There should be every game up there, not just ASM games.

Strange. There was no December POTM vote. I though that Milenium vote is something other, voting for best programs all the time.

I believe this is ticalc.org's way of simplifying the voting process.

You still get the satisfaction of being able to participate in the election process; however, your options are.. limited. ;)
