Introduction:


Welcome to the Hack of the Year competition for 2011! The Hack of the Year is the most prestigious title awarded here at The PokéCommunity. It is held at the end of every year to celebrate the advances in ROM Hacking throughout the year and to establish one lucky hack as an example of quality that other hacks should strive to achieve. Because the Hack of the Month competition is on hiatus, the lower number of awards means that the Hack of the Year award carries extra weight this year. Without further ado, let's move on to the rules.

Rules:

  1. You may not vote for your own hack
  2. You may not vote for any of the designated ineligible hacks (see below)
  3. You may only vote for one hack in each category
  4. You may only vote once
  5. Try to be as objective as possible when voting. Do not vote for a particular hack simply because you know the author personally
  6. All posts in this thread must be nominations. There will be a separate thread for HotY discussion

That about covers the main rules. Now on to...

Ineligible Hacks:

  • Pokémon Genesis - Author requested removal
  • Pokémon Shiny Gold - Author requested removal
  • Pokémon Sienna - Winner of HotY 2010
  • Pokémon Azure Horizons - Winner of HotY 2009
  • Pokémon rijonAdventures - Winner of HotY 2008
  • Pokémon Prism - Winner of HotY 2007
  • Pokémon Liquid Ocean - Winner of HotY 2006
  • Pokémon Naranja - Winner of HotY 2005
  • Pokémon Ice - Winner of HotY 2004

Voting Form:


In order to place your vote, you will have to fill out the form below and post it in this thread. You are not required to fill out every category but we strongly encourage you to do so. If you need to, you can partially fill out the form, submit it, and then come back and edit it later.

Code:
Best Mapping: 
Best Scripting: 
Most Graphical Appeal: 
Best Story Line: 
Best Gameplay: 
Most Engaging Hack: 
Overall Favorite:
The explanations of each category are as follows:
Best Mapping - The hack with the best maps
Best Scripting - The hack whose scripts impressed you the most
Most Graphical Appeal - The hack with the best overall visual presentation
Best Story Line - The hack with the best plot/story line
Best Gameplay - The hack with the best features and that was the most fun to play
Most Engaging Hack - The hack that kept you the most interested throughout
Overall Favorite - Your personal favorite hack

A hack gets one point for every category in which you vote for it. To demonstrate this, here is an example of a vote:

Quote:
Originally Posted by Example Vote
Best Mapping: Azure Horizons
Best Scripting: Genesis
Most Graphical Appeal: Shiny Gold
Best Storyline: Genesis
Best Gameplay: rijionAdventures
Most Engaging Hack: Prism
Overall Favourite: Genesis
Hopefully it is obvious that this vote is invalid because all of the hacks are ineligible. However, this is just a demonstration. In this example, Genesis would get 3 points and Azure Horizons, rijonAdventures, Shiny Gold, and Prism would all get 1 point. After the Nominations round is over, the point totals will be calculated and the five hacks with the most total points will advance to the Elimination round. Furthermore, awards will be given for the top hack in each category.

That just about covers everything. You will have until December 1st to submit your votes. Let the voting begin!
