As of now, here are the rough standings in the March Contest. Remember, you’re shooting for the lowest score possible. If you’d like to be able to update this spreadsheet whenever you get a higher score, give me your email address and I’ll add you to the “editors” list. This is meant to be a rough estimate though; I’ll be sure to go over it at the end of the contest to make sure we have the correct winners.
If you signed up for an account on the forums, but never got a validation code in your e-mail, let me know what username you signed up with and I’ll manually approve you. I see heaps of people sitting in the validation queue, but I can’t tell which of you are potential spam bots and which of you are real humans wanting to play games in the arcade 🙂
Another thing I want to point out is that as of now, we only have 14 games in the contest. They are all located here. Any other games in the arcade do not count for the March Contest. Also, if you try to submit a score for a game and for some reason it doesn’t let you, please let me know by telling me in the March Contest area on the forums. This is happening to me with Curveball, but I don’t care if I can’t submit a score. I do care if anybody else can’t, however. The arcade is a buggy piece of software at best, but it’s all I’ve got, so I’m making do with what I have.
And finally, I still might add a game or two to the challenge in the coming days. I also will remove any games that I deem to be unfair or too buggy to be reliable.
Edit: Also, I had people ask me if you can play the games more than once. You can play them a trillion times if you want. You can submit your score as many times as possible. The arcade will record your best score, no matter when you got it or how many times you’ve played it since.
