    The voting process

    The compo is over, and while there are still some hours left in the jam, we can already begin voting on games. During my first Ludum Dare I was somewhat confused, so I’m detailing here how it works:


    1 – List of suggested games. Your personal voting-site displays a set of games unique to you, so that if everyone plays the game on their lists, all games should get a good basic number of votes.

    2 – List of games voted on by you – A screenshot and the name is displayed.

    3 –  The number of times the game has been voted on. It’s displayed in (brackets) after the name of the game.

    4 – Your grades on said game for the compo. You can vote 1-5 stars in the categories overall, innovation, fun, adherence to theme, graphics, audio, humor and mood. Should you feel you can’t give a proper grade, you can also give a N/A.

    5 – You grades for the jam. The same rules as above, but concerning games made during the jam. They do not compete directly with compo-games.

    6 – A X appears should you have given a text-comment.

    Sadly, it appears the coolness- and community-grades are not displayed. I don’t know whether they are permanently removed, or will be reinstated shortly.

    I hope this helps :)

    1. I’ve noticed that when giving score to a game, there are 2 comment fields available. I assumed the upper one was related to the votes, so i always wrote a comment there. Turns out after like, 90 comments/ratings, all of them were recorded as an “X” in my voting list :/
