The kickball system could be improved by sending PMs to Austin rather than publicly announcing your status, as it gives less of a chance for people to gather teams beforehand. Though it still may be thwarted by a team signing up together.

status:
two "approved" members (including myself), no communications, lots of energy drinks, and no real start as of yet.

Well you have to know that austin isnt a robot, and that way he has to organize and do that kind of things, and we are a lot of people in this game jam, but i get your idea.


Only the champions and winners click the link :P

I hope he isn't! That would be unfair! xD

I get it, but I think there should be something set up to make sure nobody knows who's signing up.
I could write a PHP script or Diki could write a python script to handle that and put it all into a file automatically or, well, someone could do something :P

Just a thought for the future.

Why start a thread like this already? Teams aren't finalized and the theme isn't know. Leave this to Austin.

Everything'll be set in less then 6hrs. I just thought the other thread was getting a bit crowded if you were to look though to find teams.

well, it probably should be a "general discussion" thread, too. Eh. I don't like trash-talking. Even if it's for fun, it's still kinda wasted effort that you could be spending on the jam.

It's a shame to see what's come of the kickball pick system. I think this creates quite a bit more confusion than the other methods of team picking, although I have to say this makes much more fun teams.

It was just an idea to bring together a group of remarkable people, so when we needed them, they could jam the games out like we never could...

I think the kickball system has potential, but it was just a bit confusing this time. With some more organization and explanation, no pre-making of teams or PMing of artists before you claim them etc. it could be pretty cool.

Nothing beats random teams, though, imo.

So, there's been a bit of a mix-up and Austin hasn't really fixed it yet. I am not on a team, despite what the news post says. I'm a writer, my timezone is EST.

If anybody wants to see some of my work before they add me to the team, check out my tumblr: http://perceived-visions.tumblr.com/

Thanks.
