To nominate, simply put the number of the award (1.3 or 3.2, for example) followed by the person or thing you believe should receive the award.

Let's see..
:lol Great to see someone is taking care of the business!

I'm sorry if I can't remember if I've said that I'll nominate someone for something, sorry! :o

1: Programming
1.1: Best Mod of an original Keen game
Let's see. Now this is really hard.. Hmmm.. What about XkyKeen3 by Xky? That one has pretty interesting graphics and gameplay, and the idea of ankh patched into timer is awesome. There are many many other mods that would've deserved this one.
1.2: Best Fan-game
Although not ready yet, but really promising judging by the screens and betas, z-1's Keeng engine/game project.
1.3: Best Editor/Other Keen Program
Will adurdin's Keen 1-3 level editor be okay anymore? If not, then Spleen's sound editor!

2: Fan Art
2.1: Best Graphical Artwork
DSL has done really good job on that 3D stuff.
2.2: Best Narrative/Song
Commander Keen 4 'Tuatara Swamp Jam' by Mazedude.
2.3: Best Animation
I guess Shadowlands II was last year.. When was Dopefission released? Grrrg, I have to think about this..
2.4: Best Non-Computerized Art
Not decided yet!!

3: Web
3.1: Best Website (judged on content, layout, usability, usefulness, aesthetics...)
Probably Spleen's Keen site; Spleen Keen! :)
3.2: Best Online Entertainment (Java scripts, CGI programs, interactive stuff)
Hmmm..
3.3: Forum crew recognition
I guess I could nominee Yorpy for keeping rorie under control. :mortlol

4: Miscellaneous
4.1: Keenest person of the year
Hmmm, there are many as well.. Probably I'll vote LevelLord since I've never heard of anyone so psychotic, drugged, insane, etc etc.. modder. :p The mods are getting better all the time. The "humour" has been fun as well. :D
4.2: Really Keen Stuff (something great that came out of the blue)
Episode Smi.. oh, it's there already! Thanks Xky! I will dominate Djaser for making the best (and first IIRC) Keen sculptor I've ever! It had even a garg featured!
4.3: Most promising project
Hmmm.. I'm waiting for Spleen's one-level mod! :p

I'll edit this crap later when I've made up my mind.

You hear in your mind: GAAARRRRRGG!

Re: Keen Award Nomination 2004
What'd this go under?
shadow1.jpg

I think Djaser's got a Non-computerized artwork category up there... I might as well nominate myself (Shadowlands Model, obviously) - it's the only Keen thing that I'll make, if I continue my lazyness.

I shall edit this post with all the other nominations once I've actually reviewed what's on offer.

Re: Keen Award Nomination 2004
Is there a list that shows everything that was released in 2004?

Personally, I think this community is too small for nominations to be neccessary. If we could just get whole lists of everything that's been released in 2004, we could probably cut straight to the voting. But that's just me. I really have no idea how much stuff has been released.

my turn
1: Programming
1.1:Xky 3
1.2:Goodbye Monkey Island -thenewmoonsidianX (Even though moon's christmas game played better in the platforming department I still love Goodbye Monkey Island because of it's presentation, story, and adventure gameplay. Many people fail at crossover games but I was hooked from the beginning till the end.)
1.3 havnt tried any yet so I wouldnt have anything to nominate

2: Fan art
2.1 /
2.2 I would say dimension chaos but I dont like nominating myself and that I need to rewrite it. God I need to remember stuff that i read :P
2.3 /
2.4 /
(Man I gotta remember stuff that I read/looked at)

3: Web
3.1 Beyond the pogo. Awsome site right there
3.2 /
3.3 Keenrush. I'm always seeing him online and participating in conversations and is friendly. Good qualities of a mod.

4: Misc
4.1 Hmm tough one. I'd say Xtraverse because of his awsome work with his websites and continuing to evolve modding with his editors
4.2: Shadowlands 3 script -Even though it came out very early 2005 it deserves to be nominated since it did came out of the blue.
4.3 Keen Dreams 3D - I loved what thenewmoonsidianx did with his Lucaskeen games and his christmas game so I'm really looking forward to this one.

Looks like there's no love for XkyKeen2, ShadowKeen3, or allstories's Last Moon mod... huh. XkyKeen3's already been nominated once--rather than repeat it a bunch, why not look back over what else has come out? Heck, even CheesyDave's ZeldaII mod is eligible...

I thought we decided that games that used the Keen engine but weren't Keen-related were ineligible back when Bazooka Wowbagger was released. Or am I missing something?

Re: Nominate!
I don't see why does anyone nominate my engine for best fangame. I'd rather get that title for this year, not for the last! :)

I don't have time to try every mod and look for every creation that was made in the last year when I wasn't even a member yet. It wouldn't be fair if I only nominated those things that were made after last September. Isn't there a list somewhere to see what should I look for?

People shouldn't really be nominating z's game as best fangame. First of all, he hasn't even released a demo or anything close to a game, and second of all, most of his work has been 2005.

So when will the voting start? So it could give some sort of deadline for the people who havnt tooken part in the nominations yet.

The end is near. An evil force returns. And only Commander Keen can stop him, but this time he must team up with a super sonic hedgehog and a two tailed fox. Follow the adventure:Dimension Chaos

I wouldn't say it's too late to nominate, but I'm not in charge of nominating. I think it was done in 2004 but submitted in 2005, and since I don't know the rules I'll leave the desicion to the admins.

Re: Nominate!
Geez... why doesn't someone create a real online nominating/voting system? It'd take the hassle out of collecting nominations and votes... I'd do it, but I don't know how to track/prevent double votes, and I'm too lazy to figure it out. Something like: A list of the various catagories with a textbox under each for your nominations. The voting would be even simpler (list boxes anyone?)... Nominations/votes could be then sent to someone's inbox--or you could archive them and create use them to automate the listing of the voting options :evil

Xtraverse?! Or someone else with server-side programming skills? (God... if only I weren't so lazy...)
