    I hope MarkeyJester wins every possible trophy AND also takes the runner up slot for every possible trophy.

    Same is happening with me. I'm working hardly, but I still have too much to fix in my broken engine, so I feel I'll have only 25% of chances to submit my hack to the contest of this year.

    The jokes have gotten pretty bad. I have nothing against Markey but the joke about him winning everything just rubs me the wrong way. If someone joins the competition and then wins 50% of the trophys then I would say to step up the game to the others. Markey did deserve most trophies. Anyway I like that there is going to be runner ups included this year as I participates for the first time.

    Hey you, still got a logo and a site to work on for this...

    Anyway, whoever wins the trophies and runner ups are up to the judges. DEAL WITH IT.

    In the nicest possible way, the first half of your post totally contradicts the second half of your post, which makes it really hard to understand the point you're trying to make. Can you elaborate?

    What I mean is the Jokes have gotten bad about the MarkeyJester winning most trophy's last year. Even tho he deserved it. The second half is about the inclusion of the runnners up for each trophy to make this competition more "Professional". What I mean is that this year will be the best year for the hacking contest with it's changes.

    I know that the party is over, but It would be perfect if the judges write a mini-review after all votes will be sent, in which they would describe why a certain hack won a certain trophy. This way we could easily tell what we did wrong and etc.
    Sadly, it probably won't happen.

    Or, you could just, you know, approach them yourselves and ask. Just an idea.

    They pretty much explain all this in the results show.

    I have repeatedly suggested this, also. Ayla used to do it, as I recall back in 2008. The 2 or 3 lines she threw together about each hack were very gratefully received, speaking for myself at least. I'm generally surprised by the lack of actual discussion that's occured on the forums around the last few contests, to be honest. A dispassionate list of trophies and hack names is a profound anti-climax in my opinion - just as review scores don't tell you very much about a piece of media, compared with the review itself. For balance, I think making each judge give detail about each hack would present a few problems. Not only would it be time consuming, it would require decent writing and articulation skills for every judge, and I think it would throw a very unforgiving spotlight on the judging process - any objectionable or 'controversial' judgement can and almost certainly will be micro-analysed and dogpiled by the community at large. I'd still very much like to come to pass, but recognise the logistical difficulty of doing so.

    I didn't know about the results show, but it sounds long and probably excruciating - I can't imagine subjecting myself to it.
