Quote from: cat on 19 Mar 2022, 08:55I only played Pax Amino's game (I think it was finished first) which I highly enjoyed and didn't have time to try the other games. That's why I didn't vote.The problem with a Christmas-themed contest in December is, that the games will be finished when Christmas is actually over. Playing Christmas games in January isn't that much fun.
Quote from: Pax Animo on 19 Mar 2022, 01:24It's a shame that not many people vote on these competitions as a lot of work goes into developing and some entries deserve some more credit than given.It's disheartening for a developer to get 0 votes, but given the lack of voters it's of course not the voters fault. (they are given options, they have to choose)Not sure where I'm going with this but an option would be "not to show the actual voting results in numbers and just announce the decisive result".
Quote from: heltenjon on 19 Mar 2022, 09:33I guess the optimal timing for getting a lot of plays would be to have a Christmas theme in November, releasing them and having the voting period in early December. That would require the winner for September to choose such a theme, though, and one doesn't always think of Christmas that far ahead.

Quote from: Stupot on 19 Mar 2022, 03:04But I think everybody here is mature enough to understand that getting 0 votes doesn't mean their game was disliked by everybody. It just means the voters all preferred at least one of the other options.
Quote from: PogwizdAre MAGS competitions in any way 'advertised' on AGS Discord channel? Maybe this could drum up more interest? Just a thought
Quote from: Cassiebsg on 21 Mar 2022, 18:40I have no problem with getting zero votes, at the end of the day all we are asked is to vote for the one you enjoyed the most. Which means that it's just that. Doesn't mean the others are worth zero. And yes, the less people that vote, the least chance is to get votes on all entries. But that's just the way it is.
