In my opinion, it's good that only Gemini Gold was nominated. Not only is it the pinnacle of Wing Commander with the VS engine, but having 3+ projects on the ballot that are so closely related could have a mutli-Nader effect on the voting.ChrisReid said:Yeah, the award would only go to Gemini Gold, but if you think they're so intertwined, then you wouldn't have a problem voting just for GG to begin with.
I don't think any of them are really my projects. Any involvement I had was minor and pertained equally to all of them.Bandit LOAF said:Oh, yeah, absolutely -- it really is great news that no one liked your project enough to nominate it.
I think the whole greatness of this yearly voting is precisely that it's a pretty faithful gauge of the fans reactions (since both the nominations and the voting are entirely up to the fans, and since you can nominate pretty much anything). So when it's over you'll look at Pioneer's votes and see how many people are already considering Pioneer their favorite project (just from seeing your "squat") over projects that have already been released, etc. Lets you know wheter you're doing good at whatever it is that has already been done, at the very least.Howard Day said:Oh, no - I know we weren't gonna win. I honestly don't want to...way too much pressure. I was trying to be polite by removing our no-show project from the running. After all, we've done precisely...squat.
Bandit LOAF said:Just once I'd like to ban someone and have them go "Oh, boy, I really was being a jerk, I'm sorry", and then I'd go "Well, I overreacted too, but try to be better next time", and then we'd hug, the studio audience would coo and I'd let them cut the holiday ham.
But no, it's always over the deep end for the former users, off to rage against the machine in incredibly generic ways about how unfair life is that anyone would dare ban them for having called me an ass.
Bandit LOAF said:Don't feel bad if you don't win... feel great that you're in the running, and that the reason you're there in the first place is because an actual human put you there -- not because you were included by default.
Bandit LOAF said:Really, the only thing to worry about is *not* being in the running.
