Is using Java ok? The rules specify that allegro is not required but i didn't see anything on language.

As long as it runs on the target platform, it's fine!

This is a bit unclear from the rules; Should I vote based solely on a wish's adherence to the requirements or should I also factor in how much I think I'd like to be the one to implement the wish?

I just voted based on whether I'd like to play the game or not, but the descriptions were vague enough that I didn't give any of them a 1 or a 5 (yet). There were more than a few that hadn't occurred to me when I made my wishlist.

“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as "bad luck.”

I voted with a mix of how much i'd like the game and if would be doable for me to implement it.

A mix of adherence and how much you'd like to implement that rule. Assignments are based on your votes, so vote higher on rules you like and lower on those you don't, that way you get an enjoyable assignment for the competition.

I'll have 5 - 7 days off to attempt to submit an entry, I think. :) That said, I'll probably be back to drinking beer by then and my motivation will disappear. >:( We will see if I can come up with something... Indeed, we will...

Voted! My game ideas so far have got a bad rating as expected. :P I voted the other ideas based on how doable it is and how much I like the it.

Mine are 2.3, 2.4 and 2.5 now. Is >= 2.5 enough or does it have to be > 2.5? And why do people hate stars so much :P

To be eligible for the competition, you must have at least one description with an average score of 2.5 or higher, and must have cast a vote for at least half of the available descriptions.

Just hold on tight, Elias! :o

Voted. My Wishlist is rated an average 3.2/5

I got ideas and I promised to keep things simples.

Like bambam said, >= 2.5.

Why does it draw 2.5 in red then?

Ah, because I can't keep > and >= straight. The eligibility checking code is correct though (I just double checked to make sure). I'll fix the red rendering.

All my ideas are rated between 2.5 and 3, which is good enough. :)

Should be fixed now.

Was that your rule? I voted low on that one because it's so very vague. :P

[edit] But hey, you pulled through! Whoo!

I thought he meant Stars the 4X game, probably meaning "any 4X game"; Which I promptly voted down for being too big for the time limit :X

I ended up with decent scores for my wishes by wishing for things that I would both like to receive and would like to program for the hack.
