ComCom

Yo! There's an *active* AGS competition for money.

At first it was RuCOMM (Russian Commercial), but there are so many AGSers worldwide, who wants to be a part of it?


ComCom (Commercial Competition) is a general AGS games competition with a topic for each game and a deadline (like MAGS), but with a Sponsor.

The Sponsor starts new a ComCom. He chooses the Topic, Deadline, maybe specific rules and provides a Cash Prize for the Winner.   And he's the Judge.



No hoax guarantee (for the next ComComs)

1. Before ComCom runs officially, the Sponsor must put Cash for Winner to a WebMoney* account of the Responsible person (R.P.)

2.  And after the deadline the Sponsor must choose a winner. BUT if each game break the Sponsor's rules, the money will be back to the Sponsor from R.P.

3. R.P. must transfer the money to a winner or to the Sponsor. BUT if games don't really break the Sponsor's rules, R.P. chooses a winner himself.


*WebMoney is the easiest and it used all over the world (there are problems with PayPal, MasterCards, etc in some countries)


So here's ComCom #1


Topic: The Very Best Human
Cash: 100$ (to WebMoney only)
Deadline: August 1st, 2010

Sponsors: Sledgy and SamosWork
Responsible: Sledgy (i.e. I guarantee this prize for winner)

No specific rules.

Translated.  (hope you don't mind, I think people can now read faster.  I think it will sell the idea better if everyone understands the first time they read it.)

Hey Sledgy, its a cool idea although I predict several problems.  Chiefly, the moderator should always be a third party so there isn't a conflict of interest.  You are both the judge and the moderator for the very first ComCom??

Thanks :) I fixed the first post.

I changed "third party Moderator" to "Responsible" (of the current competition), we can also call him R.P. (Responsible person).

By the way, in this CC#1 Sponsor and R.P. is one man (me). So the "No hoax guarantee" system is only for new ComComs (#2-...).


> Chiefly, the moderator should always be a third party so there isn't a conflict of interest.

R.P. needs us only for "anti-cheat system", if after the deadline the Sponsor didn't want to pay anybody. But if the Sponsor choosed the Winner, R.P. has no rights to change his choice (!!!).

EDIT:

Fixed guarantee info.


> You are both the judge and the moderator for the very first ComCom??

Pardon for that :) But I really guarantee a prize, it'd be only in #1. But anyway you have suggestion for the another trusted man for R.P.? (probably some moderator of this forum?)

So the sponsor stays the same every month or what?

No.

*Any guy* can be the Sponsor and he can create his order in *any time* (with any deadline and other rules).

(yep, really there's a difference with MAGS)

I can't see this every working on a monthly basis. This one might work because you're putting out the cash but I doubt people will be willing to pay for something that we've been doing every month basically for free.

Saberteeth, erh I mean, The Sponsor guy hires AGS-makers for create game of his dream or sorta it.

And he can set any deadline up (week, month, 3 months, any deadline). By the way RuCOMM (ComCom) started in June, 1. But I have no many AGSers in Russian community, so I posted it here.


Dataflashsabot, no. But in other ComComs another Sponsor can put using PayPal in the rules.

btw, the Sponsor (in other ComComs) can wager any cash (1$, 5$, 100$, 200$, nevermind). It's money competition.

Anyway, I don't care who'll do it and who not. In August, 1 I'll check this topic up for posted games (or nothing). And these games'll take a part in the ComCom selection by me and SamosWork as Sponsors.
