Community Announcements (CA2)

-- The Community Administrator Election is postponed until things have settled.

-- CrystalAngel04 is no longer an administrator.

-- The ZFGC Character Contest can still use some more participants.  Currently there are only 16 entries due to a disqualification of one of the participants, and this is one of the limit caps to have an even bracket.  If the number of participants gets close to or at 32 though, there will be a larger bracket and duplicate entries may be allowed. 


Best of the Forum (BF2)

Who do you think will win first, second, and third place?

Ode to Animation on Eye Cancer Box.

Quote from: FISSURE
Everyone always says their generations of shows are better :p

Old people probably thought the same thing after seeing shows like Ren and Stimpy, and TMNT.

Although cartoons these days do suck !@#$%. Kids shows do in general now.

TMN, Spiderman, Darkwing Duck, TaleSpin, Duck Tales, Are You Afraid of The Dark, Kenan and Kel, FTW

One of the Networks on Digital Cable had 2 episodes of Are You Afraid of The Dark on everyday for like a week straight around Halloween. It !@#$% ruled! It honestly was the best week ever in long time for shows.

Like an Orgy of Imagination.

Big Question (BQ2)

Last week's question: Are you going to participate in the upcoming Character Contest or at least be a part of those viewing it?
Summary of answers: Pretty much everyone intends to.

This week's question: Do you prefer comprehensive, big tutorials/engines or simple, focused tutorials/engines for helping you with game development?
