We seem to have some interest in extending the vote for another week.
Post “Yes” or “No” in the comments, with any thoughts you may have.
Also, a large graphic to get your attention.

I think it might help some of the less-rated games to catch up.
Voting is good practice for multiple choice questions.
I didn’t have an entry this time round, so I can’t vote. But if I could, I would be saying:
Even in previous compos where there were less entries, I’ve felt like I needed more time to vote (but then I usually try to give *every* game a red hot go … there is no way I’d stick to that policy if I were voting this time).
There are a ton of great games in here that I would love a chance to play and review still and I am still catching up just trying to review and play the games of those who have played and reviewed mine still.
Just as a matter or principle. I’m all for tweaking the voting period, but why not leave it until next time? I’ve never liked it when the structure of an event changes while it’s running. It sucks when you log onto a site one morning expecting to see some results to find that the judges are still screwing around.
And I don’t think it’s going to make much difference. Votes slowed to a relative trickle after the first couple of days and another week won’t make much difference.
(Actually there’d probably be a bit of a spike on Monday morning. A spike of shame.)
I think we need to get it over with and move on to the next LD-mini or comp, and make everybody crunch from here until it’s over!
Well I’m in cruch voting time now, but I would just like to get all my voting done today or tomorrow, but I think my vote will be …
Yes – my game needs more ratings ;o)!
B4n Back to playing games! ;o)
So far, 77% of games received 11 to 20 votes whereas 13% got more and 10% got less votes. Also, most of this 77% belongs to 11-15 interval.
Here is the distribution of 123 games into #vote intervals:
We could give some time for games voted 5-15 times:
Personally, I can attest that I’ll be able to review quite a bit more games in the next week, because I’ve been out of town for the past week and was incredibly busy the week before that.
Yes for an extra week — wasn’t there twice as many games this time as usual?
This is finals month at many universities, so progress in everything else goes slowly.
Also, I like the large graphic, especially the border.
Hmm, lots of yesses, I’ll just throw out a NO for balance, but adding another week for voting wouldn’t be so bad.
It seems like a major problem with low-vote-getting games is their lack of availability of a functional windows executable. People who are very skilled in python could help us all out by testing out these less-rated games that I just cannot seem to get running despite much python installing, or helping these people get py2exe going, or maybe we need a ‘how to install python’ guide, because apparently just installing python and pygame is not enough.
It doesn’t make much difference to my own personal voting, since I’m just about done already.
Yes. I could use some more time.
yes, though my game really doesn’t need anything
I won’t vote, but I’d do my best to put some votes into the least voted games if the deadline was extended. I can attest to what greencow said, though: Some games I just couldn’t play because of the lack of Windows executables, or some other similar issues.
I’m impatient for the compo to end, so I’d like to vote no, but I think I would vote yes because, well, there really were a lobsterload of entries this go round.
Oh Ludum Dare,
Gave me quite the scare,
When I had a look
At the games on there!
So many were good
Much better than mine
A sleepless day-and-a-half–
Did I waste my time?
The voting proceeded
At breakneck pace
Three minutes per game
No time to waste.
Where’s my life gone
Now that the compo is done
Another whole week
Till we find out who’s won!
As much as I want to see the results already, I feel like I should vote more than I have been able to so far.
