    Note to self

    23:16 < Jiggawatt> For Ludum Dare I’d actually like an idea guy
    23:16 < Jiggawatt> Who does some of the boring GUI coding and shiz
    23:16 < DesertRock> Yeah, I’d like a teammate who does all of the boring codinga s well
    23:16 < bitslap> those things are usually put in place in the end
    23:17 < Jiggawatt> When I get actual feedback beyond “this is confusing”, I usually instantly see what I could’ve done differently
    23:17 < bitslap> ah yes
    23:17 < Jiggawatt> And that would’ve been useful when I was making the damn thing
    23:17 < Sirikan> I would love a team mate who could do all the art and stuff lol
    23:17 < Beardbotnik> Id love a team mate who could do all the programming and stuff
    23:17 < Jiggawatt> I really have no problem doing code, design, art or audio
    23:17 < samooJAM> ludumdate
    23:18 < Jiggawatt> But there’s some gaps that could be fixed with a fresh pair of eyes
    23:18 < Jiggawatt> samooJAM: woah
    23:18 < Jiggawatt> Idea time
    23:18 < Sirikan> I am hoping this teaches me to do art though :p. Save so much money on other projects I want to eventually work on.
    23:18 < bitslap> haha
    23:18 < bitslap> go nuts
    23:18 < Jiggawatt> Imagine a site that matches people before Ludum Dare
    23:18 < Beardbotnik> that would be cool
    23:18 < Jiggawatt> You enter skills you have and skills you want
    23:18 < bitslap> <3 ludumdate could be big
    23:18 < Jiggawatt> And it’d match people based on that
    23:19 < DesertRock> Sounds like a new kind of game jam
    23:19 < Jiggawatt> It’s not really a new kind of game jam
    23:19 < Sirikan> lol only problem is i bet we all cbf creating it
    23:19 < bitslap> samooJAM: for idea president
    23:19 < Beardbotnik> maybe try to match people who are similar level in a way by matching up their Ludum Dare info
    23:19 < Jiggawatt> We did that in our local GGJ
    23:19 < Beardbotnik> like game ratings and how mayn they have entered
    23:19 < Jiggawatt> But it’d be especially useful in a large online event like LD
    23:19 < samooJAM> i heard ludumdate before, what was it about?
    23:19 < DesertRock> Naw, you get forced on a team based of your skill sets
    23:19 < Beardbotnik> The only problem is dependability at that point
    23:20 < Sirikan> yeah if one of your team members disapears your screwed
    23:20 < Beardbotnik> and ensuring that the artist and programmer have their tools matched up
    23:20 < Beardbotnik> like 3d artist vs 2d artist vs pixel artist
    23:20 < Sirikan> 2d artist can just do voxel art all good :P
    23:21 < Sirikan> kinda like pixels right? :P
    23:21 < Beardbotnik> yeah but some artists might be tired of that type of art
    23:21 < Jiggawatt> Okay so it’s settled
    23:21 < Jiggawatt> LD30: the premiere of Ludum Date
    23:21 < bitslap> cool
    23:21 < bitslap> do make it
    23:21 < Beardbotnik> especiallysince voxel art could easily be done by programmers
    23:21 < Jiggawatt> Who wants to code that thing with me after LD29

      Can’t believe this post has so many likes and no responses yet.

      Ludum Date is what I would love to use (if implemented correctly). I wanted to team up with someone last two LDs actually but didn’t find suitable partner both times. And I also don’t mind to help creating a service like that btw.

      Oh no! I was present during this conversation and said nothing! I turned down an opportunity to make my name IMMORTAL in HISTORY! Forever ashamed I shall be!
