Sorry for not responding to this much earlier. Anyways, I think it's a good idea to not to wait for nominations until the beginning of the next year. I would drop the "one nomination per category" rule then, as it would get confusing if members replaced their entries multiple times over the course of the year. Instead, one would nominate a reasonable number of things for each category, and a member's post could be edited any time to add more entries.Quillax wrote: ↑Fri May 08, 2020 0:35
Before it starts, I need some input on the following issues:
1. Is there anything wrong with nominating KeenWiki for "Best Website"? Of course, we might have the same winner every year then...
2. According to KeenWiki, there have only been two (playable) "Other Mods" since 2009. I assume that Blade of Agony's Keen tribute, released this year or the next one, is big enough to deserve an entry. Would it be okay to cover the mods of non-Keen games under the Fangames category? I'd prefer it to waiting up to a decade for a (nomination-worthy) competitor.
3. I'm not so happy with the category "Best Non-Computerized Art". What if someone created a Keen sculpture with a 3D printer, for example. While the sculpture would be a physical object, the original 3D model would not be "non-computerized", of course. In many cases, it's a combination of traditional and digital techniques, anyway (e.g. a scanned drawing gets edited with a graphics program).
Last year, when nominations had already ended, DoomJedi asked me if there is an award for "Keen-themed custom stuff", like his custom Keen mug. Well, not sure about a fitting category name... any suggestions?
