That doesn’t really work with timezones. You can’t really do the contest during the week, and no matter what time you do it on the weekend it’s always going to bleed into Sunday for someone.October 2, 2007 at 12:18 am #331025
will be interesting to have THAC on satruday after X-Mas,
having my parents as guests in the room where I normaly make my films … and them in X-mas mode, me making this 24h session,
The only advantage is them taking car of the kids and having several people for making voice acting.
I guess it will be fun… And I bet, we would get THAC holiday editions…

What if the contest lasted from Friday to Sunday, with each animator having 24 hours that weren’t necessarily simultaneous? After the contest starts, when someone is ready to enter they send in an e-mail requesting their mod codes. A crew of people would have to be monitoring the entry e-mail (not hard with gmail) and could respond quickly with a ‘go email’ containing a unique mod element/color combo, at which time that entrant’s 24 hours begin. When the entrant finishes their film, they can reply to the ‘go’ email with a link to their film.
Again, using gmail (or something else that sorts e-mail into conversations) it would be very easy to track whether people finished within their allotted time. This would be a lot more fair across the different time zones and would allow some people to participate that wouldn’t have been able to otherwise. You lose the element of racing simultaneously with people around the world, but not completely. There would be a lot of overlap and it would be kind of fun to have people come into the chat throughout the weekend at various points in their 24 hours.
In order to simplify the process of mod element checking, each film could be required to start with a screen declaring what the mod elements are for that person.
