VOTING PT 4: December 2014 Level Design Contest

Best level? You decide.
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
Welcome to the fourth and final round of voting!

In this stage, you will select the ONE best entry. Levels should be judged for their creativity, competitiveness, aesthetics, and fun. Levels should be judged on an individual basis, and should not be influenced by how they may have interacted with another half (ie. should not be downgraded for pairing with a bad level, or upgraded simply for pairing with a good level).

Voting Format: In the fourth stage of voting, we are down to just two levels! Both levels will receive a cash prize, but it's your job to determine which receives bragging rights.

Voting ends Thursday, January 22nd at 11:59pm EST! Re-voting is allowed. Feel free to explain how you voted below, but don't forget to discuss the levels in detail here! Please add comments in the prior link! This part of the contest never received much attention and yet it's one of the most important.

Re: VOTING PT 4: December 2014 Level Design Contest

I'm really confused. The voting ended by the count sky_lark proposed with Chill at 6 and Protovision at 5, but now Chill is at 6 and Protovision at 7.

..?

Re: VOTING PT 4: December 2014 Level Design Contest

I can second that. Was up around 5am est the 23rd on the forums checking to see which won and Chill was at 6 and Protovision 5 but then sky never posted so... Also it looked like the poll was closed.

Re: VOTING PT 4: December 2014 Level Design Contest

I'm sorry I haven't posted anything, been super busy and haven't had the chance to write out a formal conclusion post. Chill definitely won, the vote was 5-3 at the deadline excluding my vote. I'm not sure why four people voted for Protovision post-deadline, there's not much evidence to suggest voter fraud but it is curious.

I think for future contests we might try adding a phpbb plugin to the forum that could show voter names to only the author, there are certainly plugins that do that sort of thing, assuming it's ok with forum devs. The current voting method leaves way too many vulnerabilities, but I'm hesitant to move to an external method for fear it will lessen the number of participants.

Congrats to the author of Chill and a formal conclusion thread will be up in a day or two.

PS. If you suspect voter fraud and have evidence or strong reasoning please PM me. You won't be judged, and secrecy will be maintained. Look, we are a community of less than 50 people, I'd really hope everyone here trusts one another to not cheat the system for a few extra pennies. (Both levels here win cash prizes.) If there was cheating involved then it threatens the potential for future contests and cash prizes, which I'd hope nobody wants!

I certainly don't think there was any fraud, just a late sky_lark/no automatically closing poll.

I went to reading the forum's database, and found the following users have voted here so far:
sky_lark kaen Quartz FoOtloOse raptor thread Little_Apple Fordcars sam686 Bob amgine3 amgine2 amgine4 amgine

This might be why there are suddenly 4 more votes on Protovision. This may have have happened to all rounds on this contest.

A piece of mysql code so I or other forum administrators with access to mysql database can look at this.
  Code:
SELECT a.vote_user_id, b.username, a.poll_option_id, a.vote_user_ip
FROM phpbb_poll_votes a
LEFT JOIN phpbb_users b
ON a.vote_user_id = b.user_id
WHERE a.topic_id = 2567


As a last note, where is the contest results?

Re: VOTING PT 4: December 2014 Level Design Contest

Thanks sam for your investigation! This will be very helpful in future contests in case the advanced phpbb plugin doesn't pan out.

If that suggests what I think we all think it suggests, I am incredibly disappointed. Amgine's level isn't even in the final stage... However, I wrote Amgine to request his side of the story, and I think it's fair to hear him out before making any conclusions.

    Some ideas: Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, snowflakes, evergreens, ornaments, candles, feasts, presents, santa claus, desserts, cozy fireplaces, family, cider, lights, decorations.
    • Add a LEVELGEN and win 1st place for a $2 bonus! nope
    Please be sure a levelgen only affects your half. Slow-mo script affecting players in your half? All good. Slow-mo script that affects players in both halves? Not okay.
    • Be a EARLY BIRD and win 1st OR 2nd place for a $1 bonus! yup
    This deadline is Sunday, January 4th at 11:59pm EST. You may still send edits to your level up to the edit deadline, but for your level to qualify for this bonus it must be mostly complete.

Tool - The Patient
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wtHAKEZzrl8

A groan of tedium escapes me,
Startling the fearful.
Is this a test? It has to be,
Otherwise I can't go on.
Draining patience, drained vitality.
This paranoid, paralyzed vampire act's a little old.

But I'm still right here
Giving blood, keeping faith,
And I'm still right here.

Wait it out.
Gonna wait it out.
Be patient (wait it out).

If there were no reward to reap,
No loving embrace to see me through,
This tedious path I've chosen here,
I certainly would've walked away by now.
Gonna wait it out.

If there were no desire to heal
A damaged and broken man along
This tedious path I've chosen here
I certainly would've walked away by now.

And I still may ... [sigh] ... I still may.

Be patient.
I must keep reminding myself of this.

And if there were no rewards to heal,
No loving embrace to see me through
This tedious path I've chosen here,
I certainly would've walked away by now.
And I still may.

Gonna wait it out.
