Yes, don't forget Didi and his efforts to bring that Compo to a successful Event ... 10 Points as an Organizer. @CSDb: Events like these holding the C64 scene alive and pushing the database to the point of interest. Thx for your platform too ...

Great compo, Didi. One of the cool things about limiting entries to one charset & 3 colours is that it tempted procrastinators like myself into doing something under the (mistaken) belief that it wouldn't be too time consuming. :)

ALEA IACTA SUNT!

The final ranking for this great competition is done! It is based on a votes snapshot taken on March 24, 2013 at 00:00 (CET). If you look at the votes later, the result might look slightly different.

*** Thanks to to all participants for making this such a great event! ***

Here we go with the ranking table. The ranking is based on the weighted votes average of ALL votes given at CSDb until voting deadline (not public votes only). Entries with the same weighted votes average are ranked by the percentage of 10s and 9s.

I spent a good evening the other day, downloaded everything, watched it on hardware and sorted all entries. Now my finger hurts from all vote-clicking. Some of the better/interesting entries are too low i.m.o and they got my (anonymous) up-vote. Thanks to all the participants and Didi for hosting this great compo.

I'm pretty amused after all the early discussions of hand-pixelled logos vs code conversions that the logo I made in photoshop in ten minutes and spent hours coding a converter for (demeter) is currently scoring a whole point higher than the logo I spent around five hours hand pixelling (domino). I guess I need to work on my pixelling skills ;)

Is anyone interested in workstages for the latter? I've got over 5000 screen caps, just need to shoehorn them into an animated gif or some such.

I've just lazily voted on the current top 16, by sorting them in order and spreading votes from 5 to 10. It means I've given lower rankings to the last few than I would in isolation, but without half-points this is the only way I can avoid giving the same score to pairs I see as significantly different in quality.

Mad props to Didi for organising, and to bepp/TRIAD for the summary page!

@PAL: Vote or die? Voting ist great \o/
http://www.southparkstudios.com/clips/104400/vote-or-die

Seriously: if you restrict voting to voters who vote for ALL the entries in a competition of 100+ entries, it's far easier to determine a small jury beforehand than using CSDb votes.

You can delete votes via Userpage -> History/View your vote history. It shows the release votes by default, but deleting does not work unless you reload the page by re-selecting "release votes" from the select box at the upper right corner and click "go". Then deleting works.

Hi PAL, use the Link from bepp http://www.triad.se/3col/ and order it by date (which is default).

yes, and ask someone to remove it later... but I cant remove it... I am stuck because of me being drunk and voted on my self... I know... it is a shame... ...but on the other hand I think that logo is one of the best in the compo so my vote stands til some can remove it for me. And please, let us not go there... we already did.

PS: I am voting, but the list is populated in different way each time... ohhhh...

Just commenting (wondering/smartassing) on 'weighted average':
you mean normal average or the own non-average alogrithm used by CSDb?
(any) averages are of course (by definition) influenced by up/down-votes (which _I_ would refer to as 'votes').
For some time now I hope that people will consider average+variance :)

I clearly stated how it will be handled in this compo: All votes are taken. Everything else might be discussed elswehere.

Only at competitions with a jury you can force them to vote on all entries. For everything with public voting, people mainly vote on things they like most or dislike most. People are torn about some entries. It was the same at the Crack Intro Music Compo. Some upvoting and downvoting can be seen, but the weighted average and a high amount of votes make them rather useless.

Not necessarily, but could happen.
That's why only public votes should be considered.

Forcing someone to vote for all entries would result in alot of 1:s.

User Comment
Submitted by Raffox on 21 March 2013
A good rule to apply (maybe with the next compo), would be that if a user decides to vote, he has to do it for all the entries. It's not fair to have entries with over 100 votes and others barely reaching 30s or 40s, to say some.

Also... public votes alone, in some cases, do make the difference.
ie:my logo ranks 55, which is different from 43 (counting public votes only).

User Comment
Submitted by Didi on 21 March 2013
Using public votes only might change the ranking at other places, but as I checked Top 3 yesterday it did not. Infact the results with public and all votes are very similar.

User Comment

I disagree about public votes NOT making ANY change in the ranking. But the change would be so slight that no one should worry.

"Using public votes only does not change the ranking but kicks away up to 65% of the given votes."

The ranking of this compo will be based on all CSDb votes, not on public votes only.
Top 3 is still very close! All 3 rating at 9.3 with current 1st place having 50% 10s @ 102 votes and 3rd place has 46.3% 10s @ 80 votes.
Using public votes only does not change the ranking but kicks away up to 65% of the given votes.

The only real weapon against down- or upvoting is to have as many voters on one entry as possible. So to make the results as fair as possible, please do not only vote on the top placed entries. There are several entries with 80+ votes and some that have below 20.

Great new entries were added in between. I will try to check up all entries for compliance to the rules until deadline.

Thanks to bepp/Triad for supporting the compo with his overview page. Great idea! I added it as website link on top, so you don't have to search for it in the comments.

I "understand" both Sides. The Rules have been broken as the Admins say so he had to be banned, or atleast it was their decission.

BUT

Imagine a Birthday Party. Would anybody of You continue the Party, drinking or dancing, whatever if the "Inventor" (Birthday having Person) has been kicked out of the Partyplace ?

Guess not.

So I`d say as long as he`s banned the Compo has to be cancelled or Paused as it is "HIS" Compo

finally somebody stirring/kooking around in the soup hahaha

but the kompo has become a trade mark and has to be fulfilled!
since when has an online compo got so many followers or participators?
anyone who succeeds to do such earns my respect! DIDI is a big part of this.
this alone makes him worth while in my book.. and forgiven :)

As much as some of the comments and what not are stupid... I don't think Didi should be banned. He isn't a huge trouble maker like Wanderer and TWR are... as much as many don't like what he does with his group or whatever, it's not like he's causing a huge problem with most of the scene. In fact quite the opposite... just my 2 cents.

Banning someone who brought some life into the sleepy C64 scene? Wha' d'f'?

I guess there is some serious violation of something but until some really valid explanation, the first sentence that comes to my mind begins with "stupid motherfuckers". I respectfully resign that if there is some valid reason behind it.

Edit: respectfully resigned.

Come on dudes... What the fuck? We are only humans and we all on here get emotional sometimes, not me because I am pure... lol... but seriously? I just do not get it... I enjoy the most laxity uploads... is there anything I do not understand here? They upload a release and it is not regarded as a real one is that it? or is it other? I do not understand? If their floppys were found in like 10 years it would be uploaded just because of their intro on them right? Am I dumb here? I just do not understand the comments... sorry for my lame arse! If I took a horizon demo and put my intro on it in 1989 and that floppy were found 39 years after, would it be uploaded or not on here? with my own intro on it that is?

If I now download the fairlight rutig banan demo, put a offence intro on it with a scroller logo and a text and release it as insane banan trusting the gaping hole of mona lisa and release that... will it be up here or not? I will also upload another one where the coders are named Absinthe, the victim and ms gonerae... is that enough? music bu lankopankomanko and graphics by the sleep... is that enough? Will it be up here... OK... If I change one sprite? Will it be up here then...? What the fuck... DiDi we trust in you... gape the compo and be a slut... ha ha... I meen what the hell dudes!

I always have loved the rippers and we all did that sometime... but I do not if that is what is the case here but it seem to be to me... If they ripped something and altered the name of the file in the dir, isnt it still a c64 release as we have here on this database? isnt there lots of lots of that? Or is it not? if that is the case? I just do not understand because I am dumb and just think it is cool that others do think the same I love is cool and they do something at all... change a letter in dir and a new intro... release!

Bad news. Sorry to say, but Didi has been kicked out of CSDB and he asked me to tell you that the compo is canceled, as he can't take care from the outside. The reasons for kicking him are kind of a mystery to us and have not been told. Ask the admins of this very site for reasons. Sad to see another active guy, that actually contributed a lot (specially to growth of this archive) been thrown out. Sorry to all you guys who did a fabulous job and put much efforts into this, but under this circumstances you probably will understand that it does not make much sense to carry on with this compo. Never really been active here, but I guess I will deactivate my account as well. Take care...

@rexbeng you can use Multicolor2Char V0.1 for it. It can also create a simple compo viewer. But remember to use half size width bitmaps (160x200).

It's intersting to notice how very few graphicians have designed logos with more complexity, showing some sort of dynamic going on... and I don't refer to the scrolling ones. Most of them, as of now, just went for a simple static design.

"/edti2: The Logo has to be main part of the graphics to qualify the entry as a "logo"."

I think in few releases that specific rule is not respected... as the main part is not the (huge) logo but the scrolling effect applied to it.
Still I like those borderline productions, even if they show more techinical than artistic skills.

User Comment
Submitted by Didi on 24 February 2013
I did not expect so big movers but the rules are as is and the entries are valid. But I would like the voters to concentrate on the "pixel art" part of the logos, not on the way they are presented with big move-code. If I look at the votes most voters already do so.

User Comment
Submitted by wacek on 24 February 2013
Yazoo was the first one to raise this, so let me back him up (though he is too nice guy so he backed from it a little bit :D).

It's always positive that people get creative, and ANY inflow of releases is a good thing, BUT I think it would be better if some of those releases would be moved outside of the compo - pure coded & converted ones. Or, to be appreciative of those works, let's quickly start up a new compo for those ;)

I don't think it is fair to compare things when you vote in parallel strictly on the code merit (and do not care at all if the gfx is pure ass ugly) and handpixelled art. If the result is based only on vote average and cannot factor that difference in (which compo jury probably would). The result is 10 minutes of code including converted gfx scored higher that someone else's 2 or 3 days of hand pixelling. We have now demos and gfx in one compo, and this is not a good situation. Separate compo, please?

Just my 2 cents.

With such a large field, it's often difficult to scan down the page and see who's in the lead, 2nd place etc.

Is it possible to have the top 3 place getters highlighted in another colour(s) perhaps? Just an idea.

In most cases crappiness might have been the reason for not releasing unreleased logos 20 years ago, unlike wine they will not get better if you hide them in the cellar =) Maybe we should make an unreleased crap competition next.

It would be cool to see some huge ass scrolling ones too :)

to the question: one color must be from the first 8, the other 3 can be anything

User Comment
Submitted by rexbeng on 18 February 2013
One tiny question concerning the rules: it says, "one of the 3 + background colors has to be one of the first 8 colors". Does that mean a) out of four total colors on screen one must be of the first 8 and the other three of the second 8, or b) out of 3 colors one must be of the first 8, two of the second 8 but the background can be any of the 16 colors we like..?

From what I've seen in the entries it must be the case (b), but since I'm the newer guy here I must say it's not as self explanatory as you may think. Well, at least not to someone with zero experince on the C64 :P

Seems another clarification has to be done what qualifies an entry as a "logo" See /edit2 below. Sad it has to be explained what a "logo" is. Thought this would be a clear term.

Just an idea/constructive criticism for future competitions: Maybe limiting the size of the entries to so-and-so-many (one third/half or two thirds of screen ram's height) tiles height might be a good idea to prevent people from submitting fullscreen pics.

Nice competition already, though, lookin fwd to more entries.

THE RULES:
- Entries have to be in simple multicolor mode (Koala, etc) or multicolor charset (max. 256 chars).
- Max. usage of 3 colors + background overall, of which one has to be one of the first 8 colors.
- Entry has to be convertible into a single multicolor charset (max. 256 different chars) or already be converted.
- Has to be a "logo", means there must be something to read that makes some sense.
- Logo is not limited to letters or digits only. There might be something around/besides/within it.
- Logo is not limited to screen size.
- All entries must be handed in as executable format and be able to show the full logo.
- No music or visual effects allowed besides movers which are needed to show logo in full size.
- Must not be used in a public production before.
- The logo is not allowed to be used in any public production before voting deadline.
- Max. 3 entries per participant. Entries might be taken back from the compo until deadline. That means if you want to remove one of your works from the compo to make space for another entry from you, this can be done until deadline.

Deadline for entry submission is March 16, 2013 at 23:59:59 (11:59:59 pm) CET.
Voting closes one week later at March 23, 2013 at 23:59:59 (11:59:59 pm) CET.
Voting platform is CSDb, therefore entries have to be posted here.
Entries will be ranked by weighted average of CSDb votes. Entries with the same weighted average are ranked by their percentages of 10s, 9s, etc.
No prices to win, just the fame.

Happy pixeling!

/edit: About what the logo should show is usually a name, groupname, handle, group short or handle short, etc. (e.g. GP, JSL are OK, too). You may also take the name of your favourite beer if you like, but please do not repaint the original label. Be more creative, please. ;) You may paint around/inside whatever you want (stars, skulls, etc), as long as it does not exceed the limits of complexity (256 different chars) and colors (3+background, one has to be of the first 8 colors). Backgound does not need to be black. I usually use The Ultimate Pic Converter to convert pictures to charset.

/edti2: The Logo has to be main part of the graphics to qualify the entry as a "logo". A 3-color-picture with a small part of text does not make it a "logo".
