The odd thing? I actually have "Mug Hug" in my saved lists. I know why I didn't post it in the first year of the treasure hunt though (which is when I would have put it in for submission, if I was going to do so). Tom called for funny animations and I didn't think it had the humor required to be included. Gives me hope that someday I can win this. I'd really like to be able to do that. This is something I really put a lot of effort into, a contest where I honestly feel that I'm as good as or better then anyone else that participates. Maybe next year...
Thanks for including 3 of the games I submitted Tom. No collections though. Hmm, It seems I lost out to fart humor again. I dislike losing to this because it is one type of flash that I simply will not add. I truly dislike this style of humor. On the upside. I'm especially pleased with Gold Well getting some notice. That was a good game. Too bad about Dice Mogul though. I thought that was the best of my choices. Ah well.
I appreciate second prize you handed out. I think it should be a requirement for a winner (not nessicarily the runners-up though) have no awards on them as well. On the other hand, I don't think that we need to give artists money for their discovered flashes, especially since they have the opportunity to win so many other awards over the year but... as you like. It's a feel good gesture at least. I suppose.
I've started to add my monthly lists to my NG blog. I have my first 2 months up right now (plus my original list, which was before I decided to do this monthly) and I'll probably add a few more in a bit. The first year at least. I kept up my commentary for that long until I got tired of it and just started adding the flashes without working on which ones I liked the most from the lists.
