    HACK OF THE WEEK - Season 1 ENDED!

    We'll try to get this to be more organized this time, so, we'll start this thread for all the weekly votings (instead of making one each week, which'd annoy everyone... XD)

    The idea will be to start the weekly voting on the first hours of Sundays and finish'em on the last hours of Saturdays

    Alright, as always, the first thing are the rules...

    RULES <NEW!>:
    1. A hack can only win the HotW once. Obvious rule.
    2. In order to prevent any possible kind of manipulation, only votes from users with more than 30 posts will be accepted.
    3. Voters MUST include a reason for their vote. Think about it carefully: What do you like about that game? Put some thought on it and dont just say "because it's good". Dont worry about not being original, just express your thoughts in your own way.
    4. You must only vote for the hacks in the list of elegible hacks. These hacks are those whose topics were created in the Hacks Showcase at most 31 days ago (as old as Oct,23th inclusive), or the ones who have chosen to use its "second chance", or the ones that were in the Scrapbox and meet the following requeriments:
    Spoiler:
    *its topic must have been started more than 31 days ago (Oct,23th inclusive) but it must not be older than 62 days (Sep,22th inclusive)
    *the thread must be in the first four pages of the Scrapbox
    *it must be marked as a "hot" thread (that's gotten after receiving lots of views)
    *it should contain at least some in-game images through its thread, we are not voting for ideas, but for hacks in overall

    5. If the hack's thread is closed by the time I run a search for the valid hacks, then it wont be considered elegible for the current week.
    6. Once the list of elegible hacks is made, it wont be changed during the week. Meaning if new threads are created, moved from the Scrapbox, or closed, the list wont change (but it will do in the next week). Just what's present on the first hours of Sunday is what counts.
    7. Hacks which havent made it into the HotW due the 31 days rule can participate in the "second chance" one time. If you are interested, keep reading further.

    THE "SECOND CHANCE"
    The idea is that the hacks whose topics are older than 31 days can enter a "second chance" in the votings. This will give your hack a whole month of possible nominations (four consecutive votings).
    Basically, your hack must meet the following requirements:

    -It mustnt have won the HotW previously, lol
    -Its thread must be older than 31 days (couting from the date the thread has been started)
    -Its thread must be active in the Hacks Showcase (if it hasnt received a post in more than a month, then it cannot participate)
    -It must not have used its "second chance" some other time
    -It must not be one of the 10 hacks which have reached the finals in the HotY for the last year (else it'd be unfair to the 31 days hacks, I'm sure any of those 10 would win over the newer ones)

    If your hack meets those requirements, just send me a PM on the last days of the current month/first days of the next one, and that way it'll start participating in the next month's four votings. Sending me PMs on the middle of a month will surely make me forget about them. That's why I'll add the second chance hacks only at the first Sunday of the new month. Dont worry, because I'll mention when you could send me PMs about participating in the second chance after the month's last voting finishes. Just check that out.
    If you have doubts, just PM me and we'll check if it can use the second chance.

    And that way, while the 31 days rule is a kinda automatic thing, the second chance leaves the rom hacker the option/responsability of picking when to participate. Be wise, as I wont tell who'll be using their second chance till the list is made. Be confident or make sure you'll be showing good stuff on that month, you can always wait to use it, if you want. It's up to you.

    ELEGIBLE HACKS FOR THE CURRENT VOTING (Deadline on Sat, Nov 29th)
    in alphabetical order

    ---There are no candidates as Season 1 has ended, look for a new HotW thread---

    Example of a VALID vote:

    "I Vote For: Secrets and Rumors
    Why: This hack can really take advantage of the crazy theories we had as kids, and make them come to life. I think this is a very good idea, and should have been done a long time ago."

    I vote for Topaz/Garnet
    Why: The most graphically appealing hack out of the possible choices. Mapping is great, looks like there will be some awesome events as well. Also a lot of tile and pallete editing has been done to make it look like FR/D/P because of the Ruby rom base. Looks like a lot of care and attention went into making the hack.

        It has an amazing story line, good 4th Gen Pokemon. Also game-play is awesome.

          A rare "orignal"(it could do with some tweaking but it could be really good) hack. There are not many RBGY hacks around these days.

              Well, restored everything. Of course, Week No.2's voting was already done, with Xiros' Omega winning it (if you still want to congratulate him, do it in his thread, this one's just for voting)

              Now Week No.3 has started so it's time to vote again!

              It's a pain that the other post got deleted, but, just remember this voting is not meant to be a competition. It's just a way to express an overall opinion on the hacks around here.

                    No, Blazichu. I thought we better make just one thread with all the weekly votings (because if we had to make a new thread each week for each voting, we'd fill the Rom Hacking section with such threads... That'd look like a mess, dont you think?)
                    That's why I said that we can start voting again, for Week 3, on this same thread.

                    And, if we count 31 days back (from Mon, 10. That date the voting started), that leaves us at Feb,8(inclusive), so all the hacks as old as that date are participating (And Eruption is barely over the limit, but I dont like to say those things as that could lead to some manipulation, so, just vote for what you feel like voting, and write a valid reason)

                      What happens if a hack is moved into the showcase from the scrapbox? Are all eligible set or can new choices be added? Not that I don't want to vote for any.

                      In fact I vote for Psychic Pink for its awesome graphics and originality.

                      I Vote For: Topaz/Garnet
                      Why: Obviously the graphics are impressive and distinctive (Not all FR, not all DP, not all Custom, but somewhere delightfully in between). I think the story has as much potential as the visuals. Also, I'm impressed with the professionalism that seems to accompany the hack.

                      This one seems to have a lot of potential.

                        I vote for Mitic Island.
                        Its graphics are great and it has good mapping. There are some things that i don't like but i still think it deserves to win the "Hack of the Week"

                              @megiddo: To answer your question, it'd be the same thing as if it were a new thread popping on the Hacks Showcase. It'd be considered in the next week's nomination (if still possible)
                              To make things short: "Once I have to search which hacks accomplish the 31 days rule, I make the list and that list wont be changed till the next week. No matter if threads are created, moved, or closed"

                              And, megiddo, Psychic Pink is not in the list of elegible hacks. Unfortunately, by Monday, March 10th (the moment the new voting started) P.P was a couple more days older than 31, and I cannot make exceptions. So, you'll have to vote for something else, if you want.

                              Well, have fun picking! :D

                                Wow, this is a pretty hard vote, there are some amazing hacks that are eligible for voting... I'd have to go with Pokémon Mitic Island! It is terribly difficult because my favorites are Mitic Island, Thunder Emblem, Zephyr, Omega and Topaz/Garnet!

                                The reason I'm voting for it is that Lex is one of my greatest friends, and his game's palettes and tiles are amazing! I mean, he's inserted as much tiles as I can imagine... So many different trees, maps, and other things that have amazed me. He's inserted like a million palettes for just a single tree, and I also respect him for all of his other hacks. So, Mitic Island is my vote!

                                  Vote Of this Week: Pokemon Piratite

                                  Reason: This hack takes the Pokemon world into a completely new breath. You must risk your skin to save a young, almost drowned, child. In addition to the amazing new type of story, it posses a VERY nice looking new evolution to the Clamperl family, Narquiem.

                                      I vote for Mitic Island
                                      I don't want to repeat what other people said
                                      It has very good graphics
                                      When I saw this hack,I got amazed with it's graphics
                                      In my opinion,I think this hack has the best graphics
                                      But hopefully it ain't all on Graphics

                                        Ups, it's true, the backup killed my vote.

                                        Then I'll vote for Piratite for its great maps and interesting plot.
