HOWEVER, if you really have a serious team with serious talent, you are still welcome to apply. At the least, I'll ask that each member has a SUBMISSION on Newgrounds and that you have made the effort to upload user icons and post on your blogs (so I can find your user icon).
This is fair and makes a lot more sense to me as criteria. I'm sure there is at least one team that would like this collab to be their first game, but i know 3 people working together can make a good quality short game to prove themselves first.
If you want to keep flakes out of this event (which is what i'm getting from your posts) than requiring a submission seems fair; flakes don't actually submit things.
And to reply to Luis, I will keep working on my next project. This whole thing just took the wind out of my sails right now. I also agree with you that NG is about proving yourself, but i would add that NG is about proving yourself to the portal. That's what i think NG is about anyway.
also thanks Tom and other mods for being cool and having a discussion
