If you are reading this post, it is probably to find out what TDCKPA stands for...

I had this crazy idea that at the end of the year there could be this huge live-stream award show for the Klik programmers called: The Daily Click Klik Programmer Awards (or something like that). I have ideas, if anyone thinks this would bea fun/ good idea, and if anyone thinks this would be a bad idea please reply with your reasons.

Also, before anyone comments saying people's feelings might get hurt if they didn't get nominated or anything like that, think about the GotW, no one ever cried about their game not being a GotW, and if that doesn't convince you, please think about the point of the awards. It's not to see who the best programmer is, or who does the best graphics or music, or who's the best ever... It's just a way to end a year with a bang, and something that could be fun for people to do.

So leave a replay saying if you love the idea, hate it, think it's awesome, think it's lame, have criticism, have rants, ANYTHING.

 
If you put a million monkeys at a million keyboards, one of them will eventually write a Java program.
The rest of them will write Perl programs.

Well, not everyone is a programmer, by definition. Some folks are artists, some sound designers, some are game designers. Still others might not release a project of their own, but they contribute to the spirit and enthusiasm of Klickers here at TDC. I'd recommend maintaining inclusiveness (for lack of a better word) by opening the appreciation awards to all facets of game design and the community, not just "programmers."

...Maybe TDCKA?

But the idea of establishing an annual appreciation award can help foster creativity, cooperation, and collaboration within the community. Anything that can do that can be seen as a Good Thing.

Or just TDCA. If only because Click Klik is weird.

Seems like a fine idea to me. But the end of the year just passed, so you'd have to wait a good 11 months.

Actually, I was thinking of including the whole community, but I guess I just used programmer as a generalization... Glad you like the idea, though

I'd say it's a decent idea. It might be a good idea to broaden the categories like best artist, best designer, most helpful member, best newest member, worst member, Best game of the year, Worst game of the year, most commented/downloaded game, least commented/downloaded game, longest topic (within reason) etc. The users can submit the their nominations during the year, and the top 3-5-10 from each category will be judged and revealed during the show, and of course the ones based on statistics will be announced during the show. For the worst/lowest game categories, wouldn't be an avenue to insult people, but more of a way to give attention towards something that might be neglected, and for worst member, more of an intensive to clean up their act. No idea, it could be good, it could be bad.

EDIT: some of you posted while I was posting, and kind of hinted at my suggestions, but it's all good, same concept applies.

I'd prefer "awards" that recognized members as a form of positive reinforcement. I for one would not like to be recognized for being the "worst member," even if it was granted to me as a way to change my behaviour. More likely it would push me away from participating.

There's already plenty of flaming and put-downs happening all over the Internet; I don't think there's a need to bolster that attitude with actual awards.

I agree with not voting for most member, but mainly because when nominating, people would probably just nominate whoever they were fighting with last, or random admins that made them mad. With a nomination system and judges being biased, it wouldn't be fair.

I suppose this is true o some extent for all categories but... I think it applies to worst categories the most.

That's fine, it's not set in stone, I figured I'd just throw it out there.

EDIT: Although I do think the lowest commented/downloaded would be a great idea, so that games that were missed can get another shot at some exposure.

vote worst member as an incentitive for them to clean up???
definately a no it'll act as an incentitive for the worst members to try to be even more worse than the worst wurst first.

Though up of some potential categories, if this ever happens. It's just what I could think of off the top of my head in a few minutes. Suggestions and criticism are appreciated. Obviously, incorporating ALL of these categories would take forever, but I wanted a large selection. Sorry for the long post.

I think we should ditch the people category altogether.

But I like the rest! If we can manage to gather the information we need to pull them all off. (Most commented could be troublesome, for example.)

Who's going to host this live ceremony?

I would, but I'm a bit low on funds... and cameras... Any volunteers?
