Way to be elitist Tom. Just when i feel like this power of three thing is a great example of NG, you go and do this.Nothing is stopping you from continuing to form a team and make a game.
You know better than anyone else that there are tons of great flashes that get missed and never get awards.
You might as well rename this event "The power of popularity on Newgrounds."
Of course there are flashes that get missed. But this isn't as simple as featuring something on the front page. When you have an event like this with limited scope you need some form of proof of entry, some kind of cut-off line. I don't think Tom has the time to manually review each flash submission from each questionable applicant.
So create your game, and make it good! And next time something like this comes around you'll have something to show. This power of three thing shouldn't be the only thing fueling your interest in making quality flash.
Good point. I realize that I can still find an artist and a musicy person and make a game; i actually have already done this for a project i started about a month ago (well before the power of three thing).
I guess I should clarify. In the past, anyone could enter and win any of the contests NG has had. there seemed to be an emphasis on welcoming new flash artists to learn and grow. The power of three dealy seemed to be the perfect example of inviting flash users to come together and grow.
Tom adding the prereq of an award changes the whole face of things; now its about well skilled flash artists showing off their skills. i was pissed because the event seemed to be about focusing on community, but i was wrong. my bad
