Greetings all! For the past couple of years PC has remained largely static in terms of how community-wide votes/ polls are conducted in the Emulation section. Very few changes have been made to how they are run due to not seeing a need for change, or even laziness when it comes to deciding on possible steps forward. The annual PC tradition of complaining about the winner is unlikely to go away as a result, but hopefully a shake-up of the voting process could help to alleviate some of the problems that this system is being blamed for.
The goal of this thread is to gauge the community's opinions on how future competitions should be run and what alterations (if any) could be applied as fairly as possible.
Some possible changes that have been raised by members so far include:
We would mainly like to hear from people who have experienced one, two or even more Hack of the Year/ other large community competitions, but if you have an idea to improve future contests then don't hesitate to chime in!
