  • Having a weighted score distribution of some kind yes
  • Making it so only hacks that have a public beta can be voted for yes
  • Having a dozen or so pre-selected hacks up for category nomination in the first round rather than every hack on the forum being eligible yes
  • Adding a nomination round where people nominate hacks which are then check up against qualification criteria before moving to a public voting round yes
  • Allowing Sideshow Showcase hacks to be eligible in certain categories (e.g Graphics and Gameplay) yes
  • Removing the public vote entirely and leaving it up to just a handful of veterans! no, that ruins the whole point of the contest I think. The public vote might suck (in fact it always sucks) but I like that everyone gets a say. HotY should reflect what the average people like, even if anyone with half a brain knows it's terrible.
