I just want to say I'm proud to be part of this and will do my best to pick those I feel are deserving, just as is intended.

One small point. I know 4 days is a fair bit, and those who visit NG a lot will have seen most of those submissions before.

But as none of those days fall on a weekend, I can see some folk rushing through the submissions, maybe not giving it as much thought as they may have otherwise done.

Maybe future voting sessions should last a week so people can do it on whatever day is their day off?

I'm unemployed atm, so I don't give a fuck personally. Just, yknow, folk should really watch all the submissions at least 2x I feel to be fully prepared to say what are the top 5. Otherwise, some folk may just vote for things they've seen before and have had time to appreciate.

Actually that brings up a very good point.

If the animtion is a collab how is the money distributed. Is is cut up amongst the authors, or does each one get $250. Also, for those authors living in other countries, do they get a check for $250 american and then have to change it to their own currency, or do they get it in their own currency, or are they just not eligable (which would suck ass)

Also, it's unwritten, but I assume those who have their entries under consideration shouldn't vote for their own?

Also, should we take the number of authors into consideration?

This has been asked before. It would be up to them to split it is the current thinking.

The $250 is per entry.

Yeah. If we actually win anything there sure are a few problems.
We are all minors
We are 4 which means 60-65$ for each. Which is still pretty fair actually.
I live in germany. :O

That's really great Tom, now I care so much more about who wins =)
Easy to pic a top 5, but hard to pick which one of them actually is the best >:(

Every vote counts equally right? No voting power or anything?

He he :) That's nice. 2000 voters ? That's much ! Can't wait for the results. And, you know, that wasn't easy to decide, which submission was Best this month.

My experience ranking is currently 2,158. Oddly enough, I have the link. Maybe it's because there are so many inactive members in the top 2000 so I get to go ahead of them, or something.

That was really fun doing the voting. I feel special now :)

None of those should be problems. I believe they found a way around the problem for minors. Not sure exactly how, but it has something to do with saying the money was 'earned' rather than 'won' I think.

Which is kind of true.

So, here is mine Top 5 of 2005 February.
Tom, it would be very interesting to see the final ranking of all 150 submissions of this month. Not only the Top 5. Will it be possible ? It's always interesting to know, how many voters from 2000 have voted on your submission.

I have created an information page to explain how the panel of judges is selected and how the process works. Please take a look! If you are eligible to vote, cast your votes now!

Hmm. More respected, Sqeezy. ;)

I think most people will vote on Interactive Buddy. That game is so cool. I think that game will win the money.

I voted already, I choose

1. Bunnykill 2.

2. -Play-.

3. X-Men:Dark Phoenix Rising.

4. _ULTIMATE TUTORIAL 2_.

5. Sally Can Wait.

And I can only guess that this had something to do with that post about "who are the best authors on Newgrounds" a while ago.

Am I right?

That would be awesome, Tom. Thanks ! You know, this system really motivates me to create and upload flash, because after what I would be curious to know if any voters from all 2000 gave me at least a few votes :)

Well, let us not keep this a secret then.
Even though it's a "democracy vote", it can be kept secret.

Already two people showed their votes, so I might as well show mines.
I hope my screen capture picture won't influence the other judges and it won't make those who weren't chosen sad or anything. It really was a difficult choice, but there has to be a choice in the end. This is just one man's choice (mine).
Here follows :

OMG, we should make a club for the 1337-Panel!

I cant really remember my top 5, I vote based on my memories of the Movie/Game, the part I CAN remember:

1: Magical Trevor 2 (just a 1337 song that stays in my head)
2: forgot
3: Bumpcopter
4: forgot
5: forgot

I feel so stupid :(
