Every month alternates between game and movie jams. I'm pretty sure there'll be a different theme/method each time.
See here for more details.
The dates for March and february look to be mixed up though.

picking a random 4 word theme is boring

working with people you've worked with before is boring.

Lame. The thrill of the event is ruined for me.

So yeah. I have no idea who my teammates are. And have no topic. What's the deal?

I whole heartedly agree with this. The most exciting part in the jam was waking up at 7 AM to check who my teammates are. I would get even more excited as more and more notable people joined the roster.

But this isn't so bad, at least we can have guaranteed good teams. And I'm really curious what the epic combinations of some teams will make.

I have no problem with the theme, but it'd be great if next time it'd be all random.

Also, I'm noticing that those who signed up for the random team picking haven't gotten a team yet? What's up with that?

A lot of folk have quips about the ideatron limiting creativity blah blah, but I feel this is a perfect limitation for this competition, and it limits the coder to the time constraints! (you can't really gamble with setting up a generic box2d game and re-skin to the theme of 'summer heat' ).
I think seeing games made with an interesting take on thier crazy theme is much more impressive then taking something like 'summer heat' where theres no limitation, its just 'make a game of any sort and make it a bit sunny'.

I understand not liking the idea of the pre-determined teams. I'm all in favour of the randomness. But with a skew involving much less coders there's a chance i wouldn't make ateam, so I paired with a friend. Maybe there could be a 'primary/secondary' skill you specify for the randoms so if there are too many coders. Ones that are profficient at doing at art can be put on a team as an artist.
Of course you'd need coders compotent at art for this though!

Totally looking forward to seeing Punk Rockers Kicking Big Opera Singers

you all disappoint me with your shitty ideas.

I think turning these crappy ideas into something awesome is what really demands imagination and creativity from the authors. Also, you do realise that these ideas come from an idea generator and are not what's handed in by the authors, right?

I honestly can't get over the team names. They get better every time a new game jam comes up.
