Bricc has the idea to allow people to not only enter games they make from the main site, but also from scratch through coding. Grant is also on board with this idea. However, I think it would be better that since the main site dies this year (December with flash) to only have main site games be in it, as to allow all focus be on it.

What do you all think? Do you think we should allow games made through coding to be entered in this year's EGD, or do you think we should keep it to only main site games? (and yes, I said "this year's", not "the last"; if the forums are still alive next year, we'll have another EGD, but obviously not with main site games)

That's what Bohobes look like.

only ms games. Why tf would we give people a huge advantage to make a game with no limitations compared to people making games with a blockhead jumping? Also, for 13 (now 14) years, EGD has had ONLY MAINSITE GAMES. Why would we change a fun and fair tradition? Especially in the last year of sploder, where this is our final chance to make something special, that we'll all remember. I say no.

They would likely be in separate categories and not even compared to one another. The reason for adding in any game is to increase support and show that the spirit of Sploder is not in the just in the box of Sploder but all it’s creativity. Times are changing whether we like it or not.

Then just do a separate contest.

We don’t have a lot of users nowadays.. a contest of one or two people isn’t really much merit.

You don't know how many people are going to be in it.

I was referring to other splintered contests.

Then why not just do ms
As I said above. The more ways people can participate, the more people can join. But if its an ms only contest, thats also fine too.

since this is most likely going to be the final sploder-based EGD i think it should be entirely sploder games, we can use other sites/programs next year if the forums are still up and people are interested

I’m fine with no limit on how many games you could make but I think it would be better if it’s just Sploder games.

No Coding. This is a Sploder Epic Game Drop and we are doing this because it is the final time and chance for us to do the EGD, and we should not interfere Scratch and Coding Games into this. I completely disagree. This should run the same way as all EGDs, except a few differences that is limited only to Sploder. Because we can keep the EGD going after this year and by that time, our only hope is Coding games.

Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan, am I happy that I have the mindset of "see what the community thinks first before making a major change".

It is clear that most people agree with me that we should keep this year's EGD (EGD 14) to only Sploder games.

That's what Bohobes look like.

While I think it's a shame that my idea won't be put into place (because we could've gotten more members by allowing non-Sploderians to participate), I completely understand why the community has chosen it to be this way.

And so, it is decided. Sploder games only this year! :P
