Gosh darn, no computers.
There is a slight chance that I might finally make another calc game for this... but I'll most likely just join the Cemetech one

Well it depends if Cemetech allows releasing entries before their deadline. (Since theirs is much farther than yours)

Also Epic7 there will most likely be a Computer contest next Spring or Summer. There was supposed to be a Computer and 68K one (along with TI-83+ BASIC I think) this Fall, but it finally turned into an IRC bot mini contest.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Reminds me of Friday's xkcd. You might as well promise to give us all your (and your parents') life savings because it makes no difference now ;D

Well the reason that I decided not to include computer section is that cemetech contest 9 is starting soon. :) and the lack of funding. I'm pretty sure that ceme contest will have a computer section, so I decided not to bother with it.

From Kerm's latest post on the Cemetech contest ideas thread

Quote
Categories: (1) z80 calculators (ASM, Axe, and BASIC judged and weighted together), (2) Casio calculators (fx9860g and Prizm, although we'd probably only get Prizm entries), and (3) computers.

It does look like there will be a comp section.

I was hoping there would be a computer section for this contest as I was going to compete in both :P

You can still post about your projects on Omni I guess though, but yeah like I said I think there will be a computer section for the 2013 Omnimaga contest.

The main issue is finances. If Omnimaga staff simply can't afford to offer more than 3 prizes, then certain categories will have to be cut out. We have to remember that with $100 prizes, if you have 4 categories (eg TI-83+, Nspire, Computer and PRIZM), that's $400 worth of prizes. In late 2011, Omnimaga almost went offline because Omni admins were running out of money to pay the $40/month hosting bill and the 2nd contest prize was delivered 2 months late.

That said, next Spring maybe Omni could just drop the PRIZM category and replace it with computer stuff, since nobody even submitted any PRIZM entry last year. Or they could have every calc model other than the 83+/84+/Nspire series compete against each others.

I don't know if I should make people who's participating to make topic or not.
Might be a good idea. That will prompt participants to remain active and prevent a drastic activity drop or something like during the 2011 TI-Nspire contest.
