Author Showcase Project4:49 PM 01-Jan-09 : Quote : Report : #
Trackmaniac!



Welcome, TMX Community
this is start of one big project where we will see other side of face of our favorite, known and unknown authors. With this project we will pick one author that must answer on 20 questions about himself, his track building experience and his life occupation. There will not be improper, provocative and degrading questions, so authors will not be in awkward situation
Let's see terms that we will encounter on this little quest:

# Authors will be divide in 5 classes (Legend, Famous, Mid-Class, Rise-Up, Newbie) and every week we gona choose one author from next in line class.
# Classes will be divided by coefficient, that we can get from dividing numbers of awards with number of tracks (Classes are: Newbie 0-5,0;
Rise Up 5,1-15,0; Mid-Class 15,1-25,0; Famous 25,1-40,0; Legend 40,1 - )
# Author must have at least 3.5 coefficient given/received awards, that we can get by dividing given awards with received and multiplication with 10
# Author must have at least 5 tracks (optional)
# Authors will answer on 20 questions about themselves and there track building insight.
# Judges are: koentjuh, Baston, Natzke, Optimusje and zime0n
# Author will be on showcase 7 days


Caution: Pls, don't spam judge team other me, because that will bring you quarantine and we will not take you in consideration for some time

Enjoy!

wow, this sounds really cool and seems like an interesting idea to me.
But i have one thing to complain about: The thing with the legendary authors: if you have an average of 40 awards per track, do you consider yourself as a tm legend? but it's your project and your rules

but this sounds really cool and fun

super, rules look very clean & professional

but I have to agree with Sebi..
what if you have 1 or 2 tracks wich have a lot of awards ?
Legend is more like 70 - 80 awards for me..

ah well, would love to see how this will work out

Ok guys, lemme give you some answers:

No wait, I don't know if I might say that. I mean, the tracks showcase isn't really explained too, so maybe Natzke wants to keep our methods secret.
Tho I don't think it will harm, if I say that no one will be left behind in the "choosing of the author" system, and that everyone (who fits in the conditions) can get a chance.

I should warn you, that just as with the Track showcases, in my case it would only lower your chances on a showcase if you are going to ask for it.
So no entering, just hope that you will be in it next week, or next week, or next week etc.

hmm is this correct?...
cuz 3.5 isnt really i think?
it is like you have 35 given awards and 100 recieved awards ..?

in this case i have a 18.25 .... and that seems a bit high to me

edit: or did i get the formula wrong ^^

that was to show how easy it is to get a 3.5 coefficient , those are not the numbers from me


in my case it is 261/143 * 10 = 18.25....

i dont think i'm that active ...
but i just noticed it does work better with smaller numbers ^^

so nevermind ^^

alltho , an unknown person with like 5 awards recieved has to give like 3 awards to get it already .. and he propably has like 10 tracks himself?

oh well ^^

Nice project Natzke. Though the fact that you have to have atleast 5 tracks will spoil alot of authors dreams
- such as TimeBreaker & Champ

yep, it's optional
It's more about how many awards you have on how many tracks. If someone makes 3 tracks which have 2,0 and 4 awards he fells out of reach

But if it is 3 tracks with 30, 15 and 45 awards we probably won't follow that rule
