Well, the panel chose really well, all of those movies, especially Men's Room Monologue, were definitely worth those prizes.

I really liked a mens room monolouge. (users be sure to watch it)It is good because now I have an idea on a speech to do for a competition in my school.Stick rpg was the best game I ever played online.(users be sure to play it)Its about how a blue headed stick man gets traped in another dimention.On the game you have toget as much net worth as you can.To do that you increase your stats,when you have enough intelligence you can assign youself a good career.
remember to vote!!

well see you soon

Congratulations to the winners, except for Kitten Cannon. No way a thoroughly mediocre knockoff should have been nominated for two months.

Congrats to all the winners. I pegged 2 of the 5 (Mr. Coo and Non-Livingstons)... incidentally, I've pegged 2 of the 5 in ALL THREE MONTHS of voting so far. For February, I had my #1 and #3 choice end up in the actual top 5... But for March and April, my #4 and #5 choices ended up in the actual top 5 both times.

This wasn't really a coincidence, though, as I have started to use my top 3 for the underrated things I WANT to win the most but realise won't (so I try and give them as many points as possible), and save the bottom two slots (#4 and #5) for popular stuff that I enjoy as well... but I don't think will have much problem winning a spot in the top 5. Both months I've voted in that manner, I've been correct in that assumption.

In any event... One last thing about the Kitten Cannon thing:

Like I said in
http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic.php?id=263319&page=5
back on 5/4/05 @ 04:34 AM:

"Speaking of issues... I don't know if you read the posts from the guy earlier in this thread (page 2 or 3) who had a frontpage movie on 4/1, but it's not in the running for this months' awards.

In addition, did you (or anyone else besides me) notice that Kitten Cannon is up for the April Awards after it was already up for the MARCH Awards?

It was submitted on March 30th, IIRC, and it must have gotten into the March Awards with a daily award... and then gotten into the April Awards with you frontpaging it on April 1st (or something similar).

Do you or liljim know how that happened, and why the poor bastard earlier in this topic got shafted (he can't vote, either, but I'm sure he's more concerned about his movie not being up for the voting).?"

So... I saw this situation coming, and I'm sure I'm not alone. I'm just happy that steps have been taken to ensure such double-candidacy won't be happening again.

Had Kitten Cannon actually WON for March, then I'm sure Tom wouldn't have left it at #5 for April as well, so it's not that much of a controversy.

More important to me is the OTHER thing I wrote about in that post 10 days ago: someone who got their movie on the frontpage on April 1st wasn't able to vote in the April contest, and more importantly... their flash wasn't featured as one of the flashes we could vote on. I hope THAT gets fixed, too. ;_;

Even though it's a completely blatant ripoff of the highly popular nanacrash game, eh?

Which itself is a ripoff (albeit with lots of extra features) of the highly popular Pengy Toss game.

The "see how far you can bounce an object" game genre is long and varied. It's a bit oversimplistic to say that Kitten Cannon is just a ripoff of nanacrash, when nanacrash isn't the original genre-creating game, either.

Dang! I could have voted that month, cause I almost got an award for a movie I submitted that day. My score was right before King of the Darn'ded 2 (which got front page and 5th place), but now it's over its score by 0.12 points (3.64). Well, I'll stop complaining now. But so close I was!

All that matters for daily awards is what your score was at midnight the day you submitted it, but.... yes, that must be somewhat frustrating.

However, you signed up in June of 2004. If you'd deposited every day in the past 11ish months (3300 exp or so) instead of being content with 350 exp as you have now, you'd be able to vote EVERY month, so...

If I were you, I'd be more concerned with your lack of exp than a 0.20 score difference between your movie and the 5th place movie of a day last month.

IOW, start depositing every day now. Better late than never.

You personally can't. You can always ask an admin to do so, but it make take them awhile to not have anything more important and pressing to do... why on earth would you WANT it erased is a better question.

In all honesty, I was completely surprised that Kitten Cannon made it that far, let alone winning the monthly award for April. It was a stupid game I made over something me and my buddy though up. I never expected it to go that far, and I'm thrilled to hear that it did. People call it a rip-off, some have gone as far as to say I've stolen the code (mind you, these people are pretty stupid). I'll admit that it's not a unique style of gameplay, but it still has it's own creative flair - a kitten being fired out of a cannon into a field of random-ass objects. I try and just ignore it when people tell me that it's a rip-off, because it sorta is to an extent, but try and find any other games that don't rip off a concept done before, i.e. the MULTIPLE dating sims. I don't see many people saying "OGM, j00 ripz0red off simgirl!! you basterds!!11" when new dating sims come out because they're all essentially the same. I'm just trying to get the point across that most games are unoriginal to an extent and that because they're somewhat similar they shouldn't be judged (unless they're like EXACTLY the same to most details).

Anyway, I thank each and every user that voted for my submission. It really made my week a hell of a lot better to know that people liked it enough to vote for it over the many quality submissions this month.

yes i think rip off of sim dates sucks..... unless they are differnt in many ways (not including dating) and kitten cannon it just a weird game that all you do is fire a poor kitten through a field of mines, spikes, bombs, ect ect ect and it dies...
