TINS 2017: pick the weekend
amarillion

I want to do a quick straw poll on a suitable weekend for TINS 2017. If you have any preference that I should take into account, please speak up now or forever hold your peace. Here are the options:

14-15 October
21-22 October
28-29 October

Of course the competition will run as usual, 72h between Friday 12:00 PM UTC to Monday 12:00PM UTC on those weekends.

I'll let Elias' vote count double because he couldn't make it last time :)

Eric Johnson

I'm gravitating toward 28 - 29 of October. It'd be a great date for a Halloween-themed game. Hmm...

Niunio

I have no plans right now, so any one is right for me.

GullRaDriel

28-29 October has my preference.

Elias

Oh, yeah, it was my wife's 30th birthday on that same weekend in May.

Anyway, I have no preference for any of those 3 weekends in October, they should all work for me as far as I can tell so far :D

MiquelFire

NOTHING my family plans is planned that far out, so as far as I can tell, if I decide to join, any of those weekends work for me.

Well, weddings are planned that far out, but the only one I'm aware of is in June.

NiteHackr

So long as it isn't around the same time Blade Runner comes out. ;)

Bruce Perry

I have nothing scheduled on any of those weekends yet, except a piano meetup on the 28th - but I could still participate around that, or miss it, so I suggest you put 0.9 of a vote from me on that weekend, and 1 each on the other two weekends. Someone who has a whole weekend committed should be swaying the vote, not me.

I will just be back from Kilimanjaro! So I'll probably either feel healthy and therefore inclined to participate, or dead.

Gassa

Nice to see the planning already!

Hard to say this far into the future, but the probabilities say it's Oct 21-22 better than Oct 28-29 better than Oct 14-15 for me.

Victor Williams Stafusa da Silva

This is very far on the future for me. But looking at the calendar, day 12 is a holiday and I would probable be able to bridge it in the 13th. So I'm strong in favor of 14-15 October.

Further, starting to code something in a Friday 13th for the halloween seems to be pretty cool!

So, I am with Eric Johnson. I also want to make a Halloween-themed game. :)

Mokkan

I would be most likely to participate on Oct 21-22. But I have never finished anything for one of these, so don't give my vote too much weight ;)

Neil Black

If I can get all the rust off of my coding skills either the 14-15th or the 28-29th works best for me.

Gideon Weems

I would love to participate. If I've settled into my new roof-with-an-internet-connection-and-toilet by this time, count me in!

I agree a Halloween theme would be pretty sweet.

Does that mean you won't be make it on the other dates though?

Currently, I'm counting the most in favor of 28-29, but also the fewest against 21-22.

Eric Johnson

Does that mean you won't be make it on the other dates though?

I'll be able to make it for any of the dates, but my preference is 28 - 29.

Daniel McKinnon

Die-hards! I'm tempted to join just for the Allegro nostalgia. I see some old familiar faces.

I'm partial to 14-15 or 21-22, definitely against 28-29

amarillion

Ok, in that case, I've made a decision.

TINS 2017 will take place Oct 21-22.

I'll put out announcements everywhere this weekend.

GullRaDriel

Wooot !

Elias

I'm so excited already!

GullRaDriel

I wait for the official annoucement to make some posts on my side.
:D

Gideon Weems

My calendar is marked!

Niunio

Mine too. :)

amarillion

I wait for the official annoucement

Well, I already announced in this thread, on the TINS mailing list, on the TINS website and on twitter (please retweet!)

I also submitted news for the front page but that may take a while as we know.

Where else would you like to see an announcement?

Onewing

Retweeted and following! 8-)

Edgar Reynaldo

You should announce it at GameDev.net. They get way more traffic than we do. It's your competition so I figured I'd let you introduce it.

GullRaDriel

Followed :-)

Well, what do you think?

amarillion

Edgar, I think you're right. Sorry if it seems like I was gone - but I hadn't forgotten about your message. Right now I'm doing a few tweaks to the TINS website, after that I will do another round of anouncements including gamedev.net.

Edgar Reynaldo

Awesome! Great! Glad to hear it! Post the link and I'll be sure to lend my support. ;)

The day before TINS 2017 there will be a great North American total solar eclipse. The sun will go black, and the stars will come out during the day. Freaky! The apocalypse will be here soon! ;)

Oops. Looks like I broke something in the last update. I'll fix this tonight.

Edit: Done, that bug is fixed.
