!! reminder that the irc channel is #s3xmoditmania5 !!
indeed, i have taken the reins this year. you will notice that this is starting significantly earlier than previous years; this is due to both personal reasons and because it's probably a better time for most people anyway
please send samples to firstname.lastname@example.org !!!
these are the samples that will be used for the samplepacks! you can send as many as you like!!
rules (loosely copied from last year):
- S3XMODITMANIA is a tournament-style compo where each week competitors write a module (.it, .xm, .s3m, .mod) in 5 days.
- You may only use samples from the pack provided for each round (which will be compiled of samples sent in during the signup period).
- The last two days of each week are reserved for voting. We will be going back to s3m.it this year, and as such your votes should be sent directly to me, ordered from best to worst. The easiest way to do this is to either send them over IRC when I'm active or to send them by e-mail to email@example.com with CLEAR INDICATION of who you are.
- A percentage of contestants who have the lowest scores for each round will be eliminated. There may or may not be a ghost round (for now, assume there will not be one).
- The remaining competitors will compete in the following round, and this will repeat until there is One Left Standing, who shall receive a fantastic trophy handed down through the generations!
- Even if you don't think you can enter, sign up anyway! Just don't get through the first round and disappear without warning since that's no fun for anyone (a joke entry is better than no entry)!!
to make my life easier, there is a new IRC channel this time: #s3xmoditmania5 on irc.esper.net.
you can sign up by posting in this thread (preferred), or alternatively you can let me know on IRC if I'm around. signups close and compo starts july 6th!
