Almost done with an article, GH. I'll be sending it along soon.

[Edit]: Just submitted an entry on Arachnotrons.

Man, this deadline somehow managed to approach pretty quickly. I'm going to extend it by a day (that is, midnight on Feb 4) so anyone who didn't have time on weekends can still squeeze something out in time.

Only one entry so far...hoping to see a lot more!

PS: I'm more lenient about the deadline itself, so you technically have until about midnight or so in your own timezone. Since I live in the eastern US, this means that I won't be accepting any more once I wake up, probably around eight or nine o'clock. (At that point the midnight line should have passed for everyone on the planet.)

I submitted my entry for Arachnotrons that's been sitting on my computer for about 2 weeks.  Busy busy busy...

Former commando submitted. Hope it's any good at all :).

EDIT: BFG9000 sent as well, although this one is just a few tips. But no one submitted anything (IIRC), so a few tips are better than nothing :).

The fact that deadline was moved really saved me, as i totally forgot about sending my entry.
Submitted one for Arachnotron.

I felt bad about not getting a submission in on time, so I made one up for Juggler just now.  (One of my favourite traits!)  :)  I just did it because I want to contribute and I don't care if it isn't admissible for contest purposes.

Got the contest entries up for everyone to see. There's only one category to judge properly, so I will try to get the results and prizes out within a day or two.

Given the number of people that work on these, I'm likely going to reduce the number of possible categories to one. On the other hand, a single category will almost certainly be something that everyone has some knowledge on, so I hope that we can actually get some competition in this competition.

Welp, this was held off way too long. Donation money will be handed out shortly.

Arachnotron: IronBeer
BFG900: ZicherCZ
Juggler: shark20061
Former commando: ZicherCZ

And, just like that, contest #5 begins now. Two weeks (like compo #4) although the number of categories has been reduced to two, with better benefits! See OP for details and rules.

Can I get a headcount on people currently planning to participate in this contest? Overall I'm going to try and pump out contests during the summer, when certain groups of people have more time, but we can push the deadline back a week on this one if it's still crunch time for those groups.

I'd actually love to give it a shot, but I've never played HA beyond HMP, nor CC beyond HNTR. Addiotionally, I've never played CC+ on melee-only runs...

I could probably do a good story on the things I do know, but I think they get outnumbered by the things that I don't...

Oh yeah, a double win! Guess it was just because no one else wrote anything on those two topics ;).

Well, I might try a shot at writing a tip or two for the #5 competition, but I'm with LuckyDee here - there are players way more experienced, especially at harder levels and/or challenges.

Oopsies - now I noticed that I made one minor mistake in the BFG article regarding bulk-modding. Corrected.

GH: When exactly is the deadline, regarding your timezone? I can try to get something done for #5 in the weekend, but I don't want to send it late ;).

I'm going to extend the deadline by a week, considering there have been no entries. (Note that if you do email me your entry, you still want to reply here in order for me to credit you properly.)

GH: When exactly is the deadline, regarding your timezone? I can try to get something done for #5 in the weekend, but I don't want to send it late ;).
Midnight GMT is 19:00 for me. In the past I took "midnight" to mean at the very beginning of the day, but I'm going to change things up to mean the very end of the day: thus someone living at GMT has all of Sunday, June 17, to submit their entry.
