Ticalc.org Nomination November 2014
« on: November 05, 2014, 03:43:59 pm »
Ok so ticalc.org is running their Nomination November event again, like last year.

Basically, if you want something featured for the 2014 Program of the Year (POTY), then you have until November 30th to do so!

Basically, how to do it:
-Finish your calculator project in time
-Submit it to ticalc.org archives (they do not feature programs that are not hosted in their archives)
-Contact ticalc.org via their e-mail address to submit your program for front page news consideration
-If accepted (the program has to be good quality, so no guessing game or redundant games), it will both make front page news at http://www.ticalc.org and automatically become eligible for 2014 POTY. You can have multiple programs at once in one POTY survey, but each program can only participate once.
-You can also suggest other programs (that you made or that other people made) as news, including older programs. Sometimes, programs slips under their radar. Omnimaga news might have some ideas for you, but first, check if they were not already featured before and keep in mind they have to be TI programs and be available on ticalc.org:

The fact he has two programs in the POTY will most likely reduce his chances (even moreso with the fact they're JRPGs not called Pokémon) because the votes will be split between two entries. The 2nd one is in ASM, though, and more polished, so perhaps it stands a bigger chance. But it's gonna be another fun POTY year :)


Fun fact: This will be the 2nd POTY in ticalc.org history to feature two Reuben Quest games simultaneously *.*

Does that mean I have to write reuben2 Axe in a few days? O.O

Indeed but I think during that month they usually feature programs pretty fast and to get featured the only way is to suggest your program as feature, even if it means self-promotion. Otherwise you won't even be considered.

Ah ok I was making sure since you initially didn't want to news about Reuben here since you didn't like to do self-promotion. :P

Sent the Ticalc staff an e-mail with a feature suggestion for both nKaruga and Reuben Quest: TLM ASM. I hope both games get featured!
