Since I know everybody wants it, we will run an old-style Ludum Dare judging here on ludumdare.com. It’s buggy, it’s easily exploited, and it has already started, so get voting! I will make some time to check the data by the end before the results, and hopefully we’ll catch any attempts at abusing the system again. Just let me know if you come across any suspicious entries or activity. Thanks.
This will be the official way we’re judging Ludum Dare 37.
Unofficially, I’d still like to go ahead with alpha-testing judging on the new site, but I’m going to bump the kickoff from Friday to Monday December 19th. Spend this week judging games here on ludumdare.com. In fact, keep judging them after (up until the end of the year). But next week, anyone that wants to help me battle test the new judging, I will be inviting you to resubmit your Ludum Dare game on https://ldjam.com, and try it out. The judging there will have no effect on the results here (so here is most important), but it will help me make sure the new site is working well enough for our first big event in April 2017 (and our 15th anniversary).
EDIT: Ah! Because of the holidays, Mike running behind schedule (yes yes), and not to interfere with the judging, alpha testing is pushed back to January.
