heh, pagetops when I don't expect them. This is in response to Psyche:

Ooh, nice idea, I definitely agree with the concept.
For body of work awards it would be really cool to be able to add a newly completed game to the body of work. Any ideas on that?

And the scraper would know to update the same nom? It might be a different submitter but I suppose the nominee and category tie them together.

i imagine for a given nominee and category that the set of games can be a pool of links shared between nominators

yes, we should. I think 1 or 3 is smart. I don't think there's any reason to stick with my form if you can put together something user friendly that doesn't use it. This way avoids having to scrape as well, right?

To the extent that I understand it, option 1 scrapes the bbcode form, which isn't really a big deal as long as people don't mess with it too much. :)
I've been following along with some other things being done with the same codebase (mod bot, automated page topper, etc), and it's very cool.

oh, and what are we doing about incomplete or poorly formatted forms?
i'm thinking an automated pm warning the user that their nomination is invalid, but a post might be make it more of a teaching moment

Have the scrubber alert a scummies committee member, they post in thread
You’d need to know it was a committee member though

I am also going to actually say something, its pretty important.

Post of the Year vs Kodak
I kinda want to point something out about how post of the year is discribed.
Post of the Year
This award is awarded to a person that made a post. But not just any post, this post is important! This is the post... that on any part of the non-Mafia/non-Mish Mash part of the site... had the biggest impact. It made you laugh. Maybe it made you cry. Maybe it just made you blow air out your nose. In any case, this post belongs in a shrine to great forum posts.
First, there are a few things I want to point out (also wow that looks really spooky am i high?)
1st thing - the non-mafia/non-mish mash part of the site
2nd thing - Had the biggest impact.

A good example is our current kodak winner:
It was the video
it was really funny
people liked it

it became apart of site culture.

Thats ultimately what this award is about.
Now this is Kodak
Kodak Moment
This award is awarded to the player or players who were involved in the most memorable event in a game of mafia. Fake claims, funny claims, awesome exchanges, etc. may all be considered for this award.
The award importance is mafia.
If there was a gamewinning posts or a post that was heavily influencial to the game, it should go here.
Plus, that stuff is not going to win when its going against things that have became apart of site culture. Thats the reason why Reck's video won, its an influence on site culture while the rest of the nominations weren't.
Why are you trying to compete against that level of? You're gonna die dude.

So I am going to just clear up some stuff.
- We're probably going to change up the definition a bit to clearify influence on site culture.
- Context is super important for this awards. They need descriptions and context!
- So I am going to police this a bit more for context.
- While noms from mish mash or mafia games are cool, I'm probably going to be more strict on them, since I want them to into categories where single posts fit in. If its enough to influence site culture, it needs to go to post of the year. If it influences the game and impacts the game but not the site, it goes in kodak moment.

Thats all :]

But yeah if you disagree with this you should let me know, because I am willing to hear ya out.

btw I wrote this up thinking of posting it in the nominations thread and realized that this was probably a better place for it.
Its probably rusty and needs some polish but, I'll work on it later


now its time for me to go back to playing animal crossing on the 3ds :]
